This is my first post...I am beginning my senior year.  I have a 2.8 and I am a finance major at Howard.

I have not taken the LSAT.  What are my chances of getting into law school?

What is the best study material for the LSAT?

Your GPA is horrible...

Your GPA is low however you still can get accepted to good law schools. How you may ask? LSAT. The LSAT is your best friend right now. I used to think GPA is crucial but now  I have navigated through the admission process for law schools, believe me law schools are "whores" when it comes to LSAT scores. Get a high score and they will forgive a lot lol. With that being said you should get your gpa as high as you can, study hard and get it up if ou can. This will let them know you are capable.

P.S oh yeah your personal statement is your other best friend from looking at your gpa. so you should spend a considerable amount of time on it.

That's a real tactless way to put it.

Yep... That really put me in check. My GPA is a measley 2.63. I took the LSAT, very little prep and received a 147. Major'd in Paralegal Studies Minor in Real Estate. I work as a paralegal at a Law Firm. Really interested in getting into law school this fall, but Im thinking maybe I should wait until June and re-take the LSAT and re-apply. What do you think? My LSDAS info is up and ready to go --- should I apply now, hope & pray for the best --- if I dont make it - try again after a better law score. Or just run from the anxiety -- take the test in June, do better & wait another year?

yep I will def retake the lsat, especially if I only prepared very little before my previous test date. You should def prepare intenstively and retake the lsat..even tutuor/prep course if u can afford it. Anyways good luck with your decisions and wish you well.
