Law School Applications / Re: 2.3 GPA, strong work history, 160 LSAT

Thank you for your response. I absolutely want to go to law school. The biggest hindrance for me is having to balance being a father of a high school student and a young adolescent (7 years old).  I'm only 28 (Yes, I started quite young...), but I have a ton of work experience and aside from my military and combat experience I have well over 6 years of work experience with major companies. As we speak I make a little more than some of my friends who are  recent grads from law school. I could write a damned book on why my GPA suffered throughout college, but I just want to be sure that I have a fighting chance with a decent LSAT score.

Law School Applications / 2.3 GPA, strong work history, 160 LSAT

I'm new to this, but here goes. I graduated undergrad in 2010, three years behind scheduled because I spent 2 years in Afghanistan in combat. While in undergrad I had a second child and my relationship with his mother didn't go so well. It took a heavy toll on me and I was working full time while going to school full time. I know I know. Other people have worked full time and done great in school, but it didn't work for me.

At any rate... what are my chances of getting into law school with a 2.3 undergrad GPA, 160 LSAT score, and what I hope will be a stellar application packet with great letters of recommendations?

I'm hoping to apply to NCCU Law and Howard Law school.
