I just discovered this site today and i've been reading on the boards for the last few hours. I am a 3rd year community college student. My grades were decent out of high school, but my 2 year plan to transfer out of CC turned into a 3 year plan. I will be transfering to a University this coming fall. My grades are currently horrible: barely making a 2.7. I am a political science major and I am truly interested in international relations as well as foreign policy. I am also a member of my school's debate team and I love argument, logic, and debate. I enjoy reading and I have started to party less and read more recently. I have also reformed my study habbits and have been getting straight As the last two semesters. I want to go to law school mainly because I enjoy debate as well as philosophy and also because my parents can financially support me until I get through law school. Here is a list of my questions, I would appreciate any honest answer to any of the questions:1. Am i hopeless case?2. Should I switch over to a communications major since i'm so interested in speech and debate?3. Since I wasted an extra year in community college, have my chances of acceptance gotten any worse?4. Should I go to University of California in Santa Barbara or California State University in Northridge?(UCSB is harder than CSUN but also more prestigious and more expensive. I feel as though I will have more time to prepare for LSATs if I go to CSUN and it will be much easier for me to get straight A's.)5. Should I be studying for LSATs? If so, how should I get started?6. What type of books/authors should I be reading in preparation for law school and LSAT.7. What type of law should I be interested in? Do I even have to decide now?8. What should I emphasize/change in my study habbits?9. Is there a light at the end of my law school tunnel?(I am not the perfect student, and I don't have perfect grades. Should I give up on law school?)10. Anything else you would like to suggest?I know its a lengthy list and some questions may be trivial, but I feel as though some answers to these questions would truly guide me and other prospective law students as well. I look forward to reading your take on my situation and I plan on utilizing this web site as a resource for my future endeavors. Thanks!
