Good lsat, catastrophic gpa
« on: September 07, 2008, 02:09:24 AM »
I have an lsat score of 165 and graduated with a 3.1 gpa going to school full time while working 45-60 hrs. a week, not bad. However, when the grades from my first attempt at college are factored in my gpa plummets to somewhere in the 2.2-2.6 vicinity. My goal is a PT program in the NYC area. Is this hopeless?

Ongoing obligations make staying local (NYC area) imperative. The aforementioned academic disaster happened more than 15 years ago, will that make any difference?

It'll make a huge difference.  Did you do fun/interesting stuff in the mean time?  If so, you won't necessarily be in the clear, but you put yourself in a favorable position.
