Hi everyone.  Wondering what you thought about my chances getting into a southern california school.

I know not to apply to peperdine, UCLA, and USC.

But what do you think about western, whittier, southwestern, chapman, and loyola.

7+ years WE, 5 years as systems engineer.

Hmmm...well, Loyola is definitely the long shot.

As with the other schools...I'm sure you realize that your main problem is your GPA...though your LSAT score is also low for all those schools, except Whittier.

The fact that you've been out 7 years will lessen their focus on your GPA...unfortunately, the focus will shift more to LSAT score.

You might want to try to re-take the LSAT (after studying a lot or even taking a prep course, though)...and/or you might want to enroll in some classes in one program in order to show that you can now make good grades. I definitely do think you should re-take the LSAT, though. If you've already applied and you happen to get into one of these schools, that'd be great. But, if not, prep hard and re-take.
