I have an undergrad GPA of 2.56, and I've been averaging 145 on my diagnostics.  I have five years of legal work experience, and a paralegal certificate (graduated with honors; significant improvement in grades from undergrad).  What schools are looking "good" for me (to the extent that anything can look good with my lousy scores)?

Try Ave Maria, Florida Coastal, Vermont Law School, or Texas Southern.

Your chances aren't great based on numbers alone, but your WE could even that out at some schools like this.  I certainly wouldn't say that you're hosed b/c you have solid post UG experience in the law field.

Think about the February test and making a substantive effort to up that score.  It can be done and I strongly recommend TestMasters as the vehicle to get you there.
