OK, so here's my story. Quite similar to a lot of folks on here, but I couldn't find anyones story 100% comparable to mine.
So here goes with the questions.
I'm looking at a 172 LSAT, so there's not a lot of concern there. My question relates to overall GPA and GPA trends.
I went to college when I was 18 at a local community college for 2 years. I pulled a mighty 2.5 GPA across approximately 60 credits ( this was 1993-1994 )
I then transfered to a 4 year school, it was also my first time out of the house, and decided I liked beer and chasing girls a lot more than doing to class. This led to 40 more credits at a 0.3 GPA...(1994-1995).
This left with a 1.7ish GPA across 100 credits.
I then went to work, and after a layoff in 2009, I decided to come back to school full time and get both my undergrad degree and work towards either an MBA, JD, or joint program involving the two.
In 2 calendar years, I will have completed over 100 credits...20 on average for the fall/spring semesters and 12-15 for the summer semesters in between. I've pretty much done the entire BA/BS program in 2 years since almost none of those earlier credits transfered in any way.
My GPA for this time period has been a 3.96, darn those A-s!
Now when you take the 200 or so credits and average them together, I end up with a 2.8ish. That, on its face, makes me think that noone in the top few tiers would touch me with a 10 foot pole, however is there something I can do to emphasize the fact that it's two entirely different bodies of work?
Any suggestions/advice would be welcome.
