How far can a weak 3.8 GPA and 170 on the LSAT take you. I have not one good recommendation, zero extra curriculars, and no voluteer work. My school was not competitive nor challenging. I worked full time while in college and I am a veteran of the Marine Corps. I wish to attend a top 30 school, is that even possible?
There won't be very many former marines applying to the top law schools. This gives you a good anlge. Schools want as diverse a class as possible because that's what makes the school gool. Ride that horse in. Don't dwell on everyone else. Polish yourself to look as good as possible and you will have a legigitimate shot.
