So, like a lot of people on this board, I took the LSAT yesterday. I think that I did pretty well, but we shall see.
I didn't even know that this board existed until I did some internet searching yesterday, and I am glad I didn't know because I would have FREAKED out and wasted a lot of time here instead of my self-study.
However, after reading a lot of these boards and other boards, one thing I am becoming concerned about is my somewhat unconventional path in deciding to go to law school. I finished my mechanical engineering bachelor's degree about 5 years ago and have been employed full-time working in engineering and business since. Both of the companies I have worked for are fairly well-known and recognizable. I have a pretty good GPA (3.60) from a school that is notorious for flunking students and giving out low GPA's (Georgia Tech). I don't really have any extra-curriculars or community involvement or anything. I think I will do decent on the LSAT, and I am not going to apply anywhere that is real prestigious. Right now, my list includes places like: UGA, Kentucky, Tennessee, and probably Emory and GA State. (As an aside, can anyone guess where I live?)
So, my question to all of the "experts" on this board is how my engineering degree will fare with an admissions committee ? I like to think that it help make me a "wild card" or sorts, and show that I have already have proven success in a challenging academic environment, as well as the ability to think critically, solve problems, etc, etc.
What are your thoughts ? Is there anyone else here that is attempting a similar path as me ?
