I agree! I am in grad school right now, about to leave so i can go to law school. Grad school is completely different from undergraduate in every way. If you think you can go and get a PhD, be my guest, its a huge task in front of you. Graduate GPAs are so inflated it isn't funny. I have only heard a few people who have ever gotten Cs. I had done F work in grad school, and gotten Bs and A minuses for it. And well over half that start out, don't finish. Secondly, law schools don't give a rats ass about your graduate GPA. I was accepted to schools before my graduate transcript even made it in to LSAC, and I have a 2.90/159. Penn State is a quality program in central PA. It, like Syracuse, is a regional school. Lots of Dickinson grads work and live in central PA and Philly. Don't listen to the assholes about third tier toilets. Dickinson was good enough for Tom Ridge and Senator Santorum (sp?) from PA. You make the most of what you have, and go for it. It sounds like you need to check your priorities and see if you truly want to be a lawyer.
