Two F's and a W ruined my chance at law school?
« on: January 10, 2013, 02:28:08 AM »
Hey guys,

I'm a junior at Texas A&M studying Environmental Studies. My sophomore year I was attending Lamar University while I  went through a personal rough patch. I ended up with two F's and a W over those two semesters. Of course I have retaken those courses and replaced them with A's and B's, bringing my GPA up to around a 3.3. I plan on it continuing to rise as I finish up, but my question is: Have I already 'screwed' myself? Will around a 3.5 and a good LSAT score get me into law school with these on my record? I understand the F's will count against me when law schools calculate my GPA, so I'm wondering if it would even be worth it to start preparing for the LSAT. The schools I plan on attending are either South Texas College of Law or the University of Houston.

Thanks a lot guys  :),
