Drexel's only 29k a year...that means 90k in debt (not 200)
RETAKE THE LSATYou can't afford NOT to retake it- even with the year off. Talk with your lenders, something should beable to be worked out. The only schools that will enable you to reasonably pay off that kind of debt are the kind that require a 160+ LSAT. You are only digging your hole much deeper by attending third tier law school. You would graduate with 200k+ debt and little more earning potential than with just the undergrad degree. Thaats getting to the point of might as well flee the country. As to the difficulty of getting into schools, check out www.lawschoolnumbers.comAlso, a good personal statement about your background would go a long way towards making up the UG GPA.
I think you have a chance. Their LSAT range is 154-161 and their GPA is 3.11 - 3.65. I could be completely wrong, but I think I heard somewhere that the wider the range, the less strict they are about adhering to it. If you can write an amazing personal statement and talk about your unique background you should have a good shot. Good luck!http://www.drexel.edu/law/fastfacts.aspDrexel's only 29k a year...that means 90k in debt (not 200) If it's what you want, go for it. Besides, if you do really well you could try to transfer later to a better school.
Quote Drexel's only 29k a year...that means 90k in debt (not 200) 29k a year is TUITION. Unless (s)he plans on living in a carbord box and panhandling, its still going to cost at least 40k a year after room and board. Plus, you failed to notice the 75k in undergrad loans the OP has. 200k is a conservative estimate.
I do believe the class size is around 120. And they're not ABA accredited yet, but they're in the process of becoming so. I'd say give it a shot. Besides the app fee what do you have to lose?
