Here are my "soft factors":
I was hired by a solo practitioner after I got my Paralegal Degree (2 year). Since then, the firm has grown from one lawyer & me and $40K in revenue to 4 lawyers, 7 support staff and $300K in yearly revenue. I have been in charge of hiring and most of the "business" aspects as well as training the lawyers that do consumer BK's in our office on how the court/trustee system works (pretty much everything except going to court for them).
I have severe grade acceleration 2.3 pre 1994 to 3.75 in classes since 1999. (3.1 cum GPA, 163 LSAT).
I won't go to law school unless I can convince a top 40 school to take me. (Pref WI and MN)
Odds? Iffy... Those soft factors had better kick in. My LOR from the owner of our firm is fantastic and the one from my English prof is too. However, if they just toss me aside b/c of the GPA, I will die!
