OK, I'm planning on taking the LSAT in June. I just worry that when I apply to schools next fall that my first couple of semesters are going to hamper my chances. I came across this website and figured I'd try to get some help
I started at community college in New Jersey back in fall 2001. My first couple of semesters were not good to say the least. A few Fs and a 2.3 GPA after 3 semesters. After that however, I started improving and when it came time to transfer out, I had retaken most of the courses I had flunked(about 2-3, didn't retake a anatomy & phisiology class I had failed in my first semester) and a course I had gotten a D with and got mostly A's and B+'s, I finished my community college with a cum around 3.1(with a 3.2 and a 3.9 in the last 2 semesters there).
I transferred to a liberal arts college(Richard Stockton College Of NJ) and have done extremely well there, about a 3.7 cumulative GPA. I'll be taking the LSAT in June. What I want to know is when I apply to law schools, are they going to put more weight on my work in the past 2 years or will my first couple of semesters hamper my chances at a good school? Any help is appreciated.
