well, the good news is that my LSAT score is high, a 176. the bad news is that i dropped out of a second tier school, not once, but twice. the other good news is that when i went back to school (a fourth tier one) my GPA ended up around 3.95, and that combined with my old grades put me at 3.2 overall. beyond that i have a fair amount of work experience in my intended field (politics) as a campaign staffer for a major presidential primary campaign and then again on a nationally covered senate race in oklahoma. i'll either work on a major gubernatorial campaign or write my first book (which will probably not be very good) by the time i would enter school, in either fall of 2006 (book) or 2007 (down with romney!).
i'd like to go to a top tier law school. i'd also like to go back in time to the year 2000 and kick my lazy 18 year old self out of bed and make him go to class and turn in his papers. hopefully one of the two would be accomplishable.
i'm just wondering what a lad like myself with several good points (high level work experience, excellent LSAT score, good cum GPA at the school i graduated from) and a major fault (the whole dropping out thign) can expect when applying to schools. i don't expect to even sniff a top 10 school, and everything i've seen shows that a top 25 would be a reach, but again, i don't have a way to calibrate my expectations.
