I played football at the University of Illinois and a short stint with the New Orleans Saints, after football I started my own bar business, ran it for 2 years and recently sold it. I scored a 168 on the June 09 LSAT, my undergrad GPA was 2.45. I realize my undergrad GPA leaves a lot to be desired but I'm wondering if anyone has thoughts on my chances to the following schools:GeorgetownNorthwesternNotre DameIndiana, IndianapolisLoyola, ChicagoDepaulChicago KentJohn Marshall ChicagoThank You in advance!!
Question. My number one school would be Northwestern do the chances significantly go up if you apply ED??
Not an excuse but as for as my undergrad GPA, I was Academic All Big Ten as a freshman in college. At the begining of my sophmore year I suffered a serious knee injury which doctors gave me a 1 in 4 chance to ever walk correctly again let alone play football. Due to this I made up my mind to put 100% of my focus into getting back on the field through hours of treatment and rehad every day. My grades fell dramatically and after that I really lost intrest in my major. I wanted to study advertising but due to conflicts with football could not and settled on speech communications. I know NU really likes work experience. Do you think starting my own business at the age of 24 from the ground up will help in that regard. What really got me interested in law was going through starting the business, having a fall out with my partner, and then selling the business. Obviously I spent a lot of time dealing with lawyers over that period of time and found it very interesting.
Would you suggest I retake the LSAT in sept to better my chances?
