first post...=) excited like a little school boy about law school, but i want someone to smack me with some reality so i can decide whether to spend the money to apply to/pay for law school...ive been working for the past 7 years in IT and have been very much interested in emerging tech IP law. my UGPA is absolutely horrible (2.6 from U of Penn, English) but i did pretty well on the LSAT (178). realistically...what are my chances of getting into a top 15 law school? i work in new york, and i would love to stick around here if possible...looking to NYU, Columbia as my incredibly-far-reach schools.
do recommendations account for much? should i try to make friends with bloomberg and ask him for a rec?
should i give up the pipe dream of getting into law school?
SOMEONE, PLEASE SLAP ME WITH SOME REALITY!!!
have you worked out your index #'s for the schools you want into? there was a post on here earlier somewhere about where to find those... i say look around for that, figure out your index #'s for nyu, columbia, etc... and go from there.
