Law School Admissions / Re: How-to become a Successful Attorney...

Well, have you made any progress lately? I read the entire thread, even if it's old,  and it seems you really stepped up and did something good for yourself. Congratulations!

Law School Admissions / Re: Which SUNY?

If you want to major in political science, I have heard that SUNY Buffalo is the way to go but you could also opt for Albany.

If they made a top ten, it means they are the best (just stating the obvious). Why don't you want to apply to one of those?

Studying for the LSAT / Re: I cancelled my first LSAT

What noise did you hear? It seems odd that you cancelled your LSAT only for that. Anyway, why not let bygones be bygones, you got a high score the second time.

Have you managed to revise it to a final state? I think your letter is quite good, you managed to explain how a law career will suit you well.

A high UGPA generally indicates hard work and intelligence, while a high LSAT and low UGPA might indicate intelligence and laziness or poor planning, lack of commitment, maturity issues, etc.
Yeah, that's how I see it. You can be extra smart but very lazy or you can work very very hard and still not be able to score high on tests. 

Law School Admissions / Re: Study Abroad factored in LSAC GPA?

The grading system is different in all countries. Some use letters, some use numbers. Some use numbers from 1 to 10, others use numbers from 1 to 30. It may get pretty difficult to transfer grades from any country.

I don't know what to say, you certainly have a colorful past. From what I've heard, if you can demonstrate the state that you have really changed you might have a chance so don't give up just yet.

I know law school is tough and it may suck out the life out of you but it doesn't mean I could never become a successful lawyer.

Incoming 1Ls / Re: 2-3 years before 1L

Why don't you study for the LSAT anyway? You might learn a thing or two and, if for some reason, you'll be required to take it you'll be prepared.
