Yeah a 3.0 isn't ideal but its not that bad. If you can score 3 or 4 points higher than a school's 75th percentile...they are going to over look that. Just bust your ass on the LSAT and then write a bull PS about how you realized your love for the law after ugrad, went to grad and realized your academic potential and how you beleive your new grad gpa and lsat show your ability to suceed in law school more than the ugrad.
Best strategy would be to take the next year and get a good job (WE counts in admissions) do the grad school at night and take a class and study for the LSAT and do well on it. If you can take care of all that at once.\
It really depends on how intense you are about getting to law school, what your goals are etc. For instance, if you can do well on the LSAT you can still get into a school....the best way to downplay your ugpa would be to get a grad degree, do well and get some years of WE...then the ugpa will count for less. But it will always be there. Either way doing well on the LSAT is the most important thing for you.
What was your ugpa btw? What major, hard school?
I see. So is it worth going to grad school? Or should I just tough it out at a tier 3/4?
You would be better off paying for an LSAT prep course (testmasters or powerscore... NOT KAPLAN OR PR).
