Hi! I'm graduating next May, hopefully with somewhere between a 3.1 and 3.2 GPA. My GPA is so low because I partied way too hard my freshman year and I had quite a few deaths in my family in my sophomore year, and I fully recognize all of this to be my fault, so unneccessary comments are not needed. I have steadily increased my semester GPA's. I'm taking the LSAT in September, and I am predicting (from previous practice tests) around a 160 or higher. My top two schools are LSU and Ole Miss. Would these schools be ridiculously out of my reach? Obviously, I will apply to other "lower tier" law schools, in addition, but I would love to be accepted into these two.
Thanks so much for all of your advice and help!
