1. They will look primarily at your cumulative GPA. People on law school discussion boards obsess over minutia such as grade trends, difficulty of classes, etc, but law schools don't. They want to report high GPAs to USNWR, so they look at your cumulative GPA.

2. You can go ahead and explain it if you like, but again, they won't really care.

3. Extracurriculars are of minimal importance (if anything). They won't matter either way unless you have something really, truly impressive on your resume. If you spent a couple of years in the Peace Corps, worked as a teacher in the inner city, spent a few years as the director of  non-profit, etc, then yes, it will help. The fact that you joined the Biology Club or participated in a bake sale will not really matter. Not trying to belittle your activities or accomplishments, just trying to be honest.

Lastly, until you have an LSAT score none of this matters. Your GPA and LSAT are BY FAR the most important factors. They will effectively determine where you go to law school. These other factors are small potatoes that might accentuate an application, but cannot make up for a GPA/LSAT deficiency. Focus on getting the highest LSAT score possible. 
Law School Admissions / I would need some advice

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?

Another reason I'm switching from Jill stein to Donald Trump is simple.....

No one has ever had the guts to call Hillary Clinton a liar to her face.

Trump won the debate hands down, he changed my mind about who I was voting for and he called Clinton out as a liar....he called her out for what when truly is.

That is what we need as a commander in chief....

Not another apologist and certainly not a power hungry lying sack of shite!!!

He earned my vote with his strong words of bareknuckle facts--Hillary is a liar and exposed as one before millions of viewers
