Are provisional schools any good?  Like University of LaVerne?

A 2.4 is a pretty bad GPA.  I think it's the same as my bad LSAT score of 141.  So I'm sure I'll get rejected there too.

Check out Thomas Jefferson in San Diego.  They recently got accreditation.  It's the "safe" school for everyone interested in the SD market.

take LSAT again, even if you did get into one of those schools... its not worth it going to those schools without any scholarships.  I dont think that you will qualify for any with your numbers, and why rack up debt to go to a school that isn't really marketable to begin with.  You have a decent GPA, I dunno about your school, just retake LSAT and work for a year!

Thanks for the advice.  I got accepted at Thomas Cooley and received a 25% scholarship.

Good luck with whatever you decide, and congrats on the scholarship.

One thing though: make sure you look very carefully at the terms of renewing the scholarship from year to year.  Rumor has it that Cooley's curve is set very low, which makes it hard to make the typical required GPA cut-off to even stay in the school, much less maintain a scholarship.

This has to be a flame. 

If it isn't - please reconsider going to law school.
