Hello,First of all, thank you in advance for any help or information you may be able to provide.I have been working at a law firm the past 6 years and have decided to pursue law school for the 2010-2011 academic year. I studied Biology at my first university and left during my last quarter (without a degree) and a GPA around 2.70. Since leaving, I have been working as a consultant at a law firm/consultant company and doing very well in the industry. When I decided that law school was what I wanted to pursue, I enrolled as a transfer student at a new university and in the past year, I have a 3.9 GPA in Psychology. I am set to graduate after the summer and have started studying for the LSAT already. I am 30 years old and am very ambitious and want to pursue this goal head on.I would like to try my hand at the more elite schools. While I realize the Ivy League schools may be out of reach, I want to get in the best school possible and have my sights set on schools such as Michigan, Duke & Boston College.My question is, are these schools also out of reach? Assuming I knock the LSAT out of the park (which I believe I can), do law schools place much emphasis on students who don't do as well in college, but attend a bit later in life when they truly know what they want? Also, I assume the 6 years at a law firm with great reccomendations helps?Again, thanks in advance for any answers you have.....I truly appreciate any thoughts you could lend.
Oh yea...you're delicious and lean, but unsustainable and not to be consumed daily.
I can't say for sure, but I would guess that they see the cumulative GPA before they see the breakdown. I doubt anyone will throw out a 3.2 right off the bat though. They will probably look at the breakdown and see that it's not the typical 3.2, and that should help you a bit.
