Minority and Non-Traditional Law Students / What do law schools look for?
« on: January 08, 2013, 05:57:20 PM »
Do law schools look at trends in grades as do many other graduate schools?  Is a transcript with high marks in upper level classes looked upon in a more favorable light than a transcript that has poor marks in junior/senior level classes and higher marks in lower level classes?  How much time is actually dedicated by the school to looking over the Law School application by the school?  Do they simply take the top apps or is it somewhat holistic? 

Minority and Non-Traditional Law Students / Am I too old for law?
« on: January 07, 2013, 08:36:44 PM »
I am a 37 year old wondering if I have the time necessary not only complete a degree in law, but do so in a manner that secures me a position which would successfully pay off my debt within a time frame which would allow me to live on some of the money I earn.  I have a 3.6 GPA in Economics.  I have not taken the LSAT.  Is it worth it?  No family.  Just me in need of a career change.  All and any input is appreciated.
