Hey all, I stumbled across this board and would love some input, my thanks in advance for any help.
Here's my situation: I'm 35 and never received my BA. Beyond being undisciplined, I just wasn't interested in traditional careers and went to school solely for interest and education. That has changed. Ive found a passion for the law, and am interested in pursuing it. As far as my academic record, here is the good: I received my undergrad school's "philosophy student of the year" award, and I took the LSAT last year, scoring in the top 1% (174). That's it. The bad: I dropped out of school the year after receiving said award (13 years ago), and my GPA was an earth-shattering 1.9 .
So, my delimma: do I go ahead and attend night law classes, knowing the opportunity won't be as great when I'm done, or do I go ahead and basically "re-start" my whole academic career in order to get a full BA with a better GPA in order to get into a top-tier school?
I'm tempted to do the former, as I don't relish the idea of adding three years of undergrad work to everything. BUT, will there really be that much opportunity if I go that route?
