well, i know you have already received lots of encouragement, but i am here to offer more!  my best friend's mother just graduated from law school.  she's an amazing woman who was a teacher for 25+ years, a single mom, and had already gone back to school for her master's in higher administration.  law school was always a dream for her, and she decided to go for it.  in conversations with her, i can tell that she is so happy that she did.  it sounds like the two of you are similar in that you already have a well established career that pays the bills.  the thing is, there is a lot more to life than just paying the bills.  if this is a dream that you have, i say go for it!  it sounds like you have some great work experience under your belt, and although your undergrad gpa seems fairly average, i will re-iterate what others have already said and point out that i believe your work and life experience will outweigh an outdated gpa.  go for it, have fun with it, and good luck!  i am sure you will shine!

i'm not sure if it is the same in all states, but i am pretty sure that in california, once you turn 18, your juvenile record is sealed and you don't have to disclose.

i would recommend getting the next 10 actual and 10 more actual lsats.  much better investment, many more practice tests.

Law School Admissions / narrative evaluations vs. letter grades
« on: November 04, 2004, 01:23:32 PM »
i'm in kind of a unique situation.  the school i went to for my undergrad (uc santa cruz) had a system where you could choose whether you wanted to receive letter grades or narrative evaluations (and a pass/no pass grade) for your classes.  if you wanted a gpa upon graduation, you had to opt for letter grades in at least 2/3 of your classes, which i did, however i do have a number of classes in which i did not opt for a letter grade.  does anyone know how this can affect a law school application?  i checked on lsac, and it just said that only letter grades are factored into my gpa.  just curious if anyone has had any experience with this situation...any feedback is appreciated!
