I am a prime example that you could have a low G.P.A. and test score but finish at the top of you class.
I can't believe I am getting involved in this thread, but I do have one thing to point out (assuming you are not a duplicate poster of the original flame, which is very possible).
The quoted advice is both skewed and irrelevant. First off, you can't have a low GPA and finish at the top of your class. You could work to bring up your GPA... but then, you no longer have a low GPA. The original poster gives every indication that they are done with school. Therefore, they can not
finish at the top of their class.
Anyone who encourages this poster (again, on the EXTREMELY small chance that they aren't a flame) should realize that people like this lower the value of all law degrees. Some people aren't made for law school- the influx of people going to law school who shouldn't be there is leading to an oversaturation of lawyers... this is bad for all of us, no matter what school we go to.
