I've been working full-time in Education since Jan '04 and I hope to start law school in 2010. This past December I took my first practice exam and scored 154. Been studying with Kaplan books for months and aim for 170 on September LSAT. I messed up in undergrad at a top20 liberal arts where I failed classes senior year because aLOT of stuff happening (addendum). Finished senior year with part-time classes, F/T work at a large state university and transferred the credits to my liberal arts. That's years behind me and I've been working a good gig where I travel internationally every year and have major responsibilities. College admission work. I oversee our international student recruitment. I'm applying next fall to some T14s (probably Georgetown, Michigan, Penn, Columbia), then BU, BC (my two top choices), GWU, American with Northeastern being my safety. I used to prowl LSN religiously looking for hardcore splitters like me at top schools and there's always one or two here and there. Would I need to be in the mid-170's to have some shot at T14? It's so unpredictable. Northwestern used to top my list since they're friendly to work experience but I've stricken it for personal reasons. Any insight? Thanks!
I'm a black male. Immigrant family, but I am the only one born in the U.S. Not first to go to college nor grad school. But, yeah, flavor? Umm, chocolate.
