I hate to say this, but law school is a numbers game mostly. If I were the head of admissions I'd take your experiences into account as a way to balance your poor GPA, but sadly I'm not in charge. Schools are obsessed with maintaining their U.S. News rankings. It's a corrupt and broken system, but as the author of a book I'm reading on the topic points, it is as it is. That being said I don't know enough about the schools you are applying to to answer your question. Check out lawschoolnumbers and search for your stats if you haven't already. I will say that you should be very sure that law school is something you want to do and aren't just going because you think it might be a good career. It will be expensive and there are no gurantees, but if you truly care about the law then by all means go. Dedication is needed, but be sure you are truly dedicated before you spend the time and money.
