Sounds like things have been really tough for you. And don't worry, I think admissions will understand that your GPA is low because you were close to a plane crash in high school. And maybe you'll get a break for being Spanish, also. Use the victim angle really strongly in your personal statement. It should help your chances.
I am going to have to disagree with Mr cash...Yes, it is numbers driven in terms of acceptance; however even with a 2.2 you can still get into plenty of lower ranked law schools if your willing to take the plunge at a tier 4. I highly doubt that you were suggesting that you wanted acceptance in a top 100 school.. If you can get at least a 155 on the lsat and are willing to travel or relocate for the opportunity to study law there are some schools that would most likely give you a shot. check out Cooley in MI, Appalachian in VA, Barry in Orlando FL, or use the GPA/LSAT index link on the lsac website to see what other options may work for you. There are way too many pessimistic and arrogant people who post on this site. They feel that if you don't go to a highly regarded school that you are wasting your time and money. If you are serious about pursuing a legal education and willing to shell out the cash without scholarship at a low level law school than I say go for it! I don't mean to offend anyone for trying to be honest but i call em how I see em..
