I've heard conflicting reports on whether Law School's really look at undergraduate degrees. I have an engineering degree (Mechanical Engineering from Case Western) with about a years worth of related technical job experience. Will this give me any advantage??... Unfortunately, due partly to the nature of the degree, I feel that my UGPA is not representative of my aptitude for studying law. My GPA is 2.75 and LSAT is 168. This being said, should I write an addendum to focus on that, or will that simply sound like I'm making illegitimate excuses?
Also, any thought as to chance at a top 50 law school? I'm scared away when I look at GPA's, though I know my LSAT is right there with most. I'd be looking at Case, Pitt, Ohio St., plus a few west coast schools (Hastings, Lewis & Clark, UW, Cal(a dream)).
Thanks a ton... best of luck to the rest of ya!
