Oh, and your highly unprestigious UG probably won't be a problem, trust me.
\In regards to Bloomlaw's comments:- So there does seem to be conclusive opinion that the admissions councils are more lenient earlier in the cycle? possibly because they have more spots?In my opinion, this occurs because early in the cycle, they see a decent students with a good app, with numbers that work for them, and they don't really have a reason to reject you, so they accept you. After they have went through a couple rounds of applications, they look at the holes they have to fill in their student number averages, and try to correct this. At this time, they are probably less lenient in allowing the average student in, you would need something to differentiate you and make you worth it numbers wise, like a high lsat, but a student like you or me would also have the severe GPA factor. For a splitter, in the earlier cycles, they tend to see the high lsat much more prominently than the low gpa. But that's just a guess. Anyone with more info?Also, I'm taking the semester off from work (have money saved up) and taking 21 credit hours, so that's how I'll be able to raise it from 2.84 to 3.0 (already ran the math ), but then I wouldn't be applying until December...isn't that getting a bit late?That's the question you have to answer. An Earlier application provides distinct advantages. A higher gpa provides distinct advantages. Which set of positives are greater, and in your position, which is the better choice?Any tips on how to spruce up an application if you're a splitter? I'm guessing that I want to emphasize my potential to succeed in law school, and tone down my freshman year F's as much as possible...I talked to a couple splitters from this cycle on LSN, and they said one good thing was to write school specific essays for every school you attend. I'm gonna try that, but I'm also writing my essay on a rough patch I had sophomore year of college. The main point is that I fought through it, but it also affected my grades, and I'm definitely touching on that in the essay.
