So I've just recently got the law bug (I'm 28 - better late than never!). Here is a scenario for you:
My undergrad GPA from Virginia Tech was 2.92 in Business Information Technology (5 yrs ago - 2003 grad). My LSAT is 174. If it matters, I owned my own company for the last 5 years and was quite successful but had to leave because my partner and I didn't see eye to eye in how to handle the current economic conditions. Plus, on to better things!
I'm not sure what my chances are to getting into a top school, so I was thinking of knocking their socks off by going to a lesser school for my first year and acing everything (lots of assumptions here...)
My question is, how much lesser of a school could I go to? There is one in my area, but it is a Tier 4. I really didn't want to dip that low, but I'll do what I have to. It's still an ABA school - Regent University. Then, I'd like to go to another school. My list so far is William and Mary, UVA, Fordham, NYU.
Comments? Ideas? Thanks!
