Law School Applications / Re: LOW GPA LOW LSAT South Western Law

Are you set on an accelerated program? I think you can get into Cooley with those numbers, but like a PP said, you should do a cost/benefit analysis.

Cooley applicants chart - http://cooley.lawschoolnumbers.com/stats
Cooley employment statistics - http://www.lawschooltransparency.com/clearinghouse/?school=cooley

I would suggest taking the LSAT again if possible.

Always Sunny, how long have you been an attorney and where did you graduate from?
If not, what is your LSAT score and when did you complete you BA?
I'm guessing no to all the above.

I could give you a lecture on the job market overall being "hard" and unemployment being lower in the legal field than other fields, and on IBR,  etc,etc, but anyone who cares about all that already knows it.
I guess attending law school doesn't stop you from making ad hominem attacks.

You're right that I don't have my JD. I have my masters and got a 160 LSAT. I currently teach at a university. I gave the OP advice because she asked for it.

Depending on those goals, I don't think that any T1/T2 is necessarily a better choice than any T3/T4.
I absolutely agree with you. I'm sorry if I wasn't clear, OP. You didn't state your career goals or where you wanted to practice. That's why I said I didn't know if it was the best decision and that you should check out employment rates for different schools you're thinking about.

90% of admission (maybe more?) is LSAT and GPA so I would just focus on those.

Honestly, I don't know if you should go to law school if you can't get into a tier 1 or 2. The job market is really rough, and unless you're independently wealthy you'll likely be going into 100+k of debt. Unless you have some serious experience/qualifications in a specialty, you'll likely be beat out for jobs by tier 1 or 2 graduates every time. Make sure you really think this through and research the job prospects for your school - http://www.lawschooltransparency.com

Not necessary. I haven't even heard of a law school asking for your SAT.
