Hi guys...wondering if any of you could offer me some advice. I started out my college career (at a top 5 Ivy) as a biology major with a one-track mind: getting into med school; however, after careful thought and consideration, I decided medicine was not for me. Besides the toll that it took on my social life, my grades weren't cutting it. I switched majors after my sophomore year and since then have gotten a 4.0 (or close to it) every semester. My major GPA is a 3.8 and overall GPA a 3.5. I realized that I could apply my interests in medicine and healthcare to the law field and am excited at the prospect of being a lawyer. So here are my questions:
1.) Will law schools look at the trend of my grades rather than just the cumulative GPA, since it is clear that when I got out of pre-med classes I started to truly excel?
I'm worried that when looking at a 3.5 alone I will be thrown out at top law schools.
2.) Is this something to write about/explain in law school apps?
3.) Most, if not all, of my extracurriculars are medically-related. Is it a negative to not have any law experience when applying to law school?
