How will retaking the LSAT (regardless of whether yuo score higher or lower) demonstrate that you are capable of handling the work? LSAT's are used as a rough indicator of the student's capability to learn the material... but what you have, actual law school grades, is FAR more indicative of your ability. What you need to do is to show why things will be different a second time around. A 2.1, while lousy, isn't failing, so perhaps you can get back into the school you left and pull up your grades. If you follow up that lousy semester with a semester of really good grades, perhaps you can use that in transferring to another similarly-ranked school and set off on a fresh start there... I don't think that most schools transfer over actual grades when they accept transfer credits/classes, so you'll have a blank slate, GPA-wise.Good Luck,Rob
We all have personal problems. Especially over the 3 year marathon that is law school. What separates those that succeed from those that fail is rising above the problems and still getting the job done.
So you are saying one bad semester means this guy will never be able to put it together? That people shouldn't get second chances? I had multiple F's in undergrad and I've done exceptionally well in law school. I'm glad I didn't listen to someone like you--that somehow my inability to deal with my problems back then meant I can never deal with future problems. Please.
