I am a senior and during the past summer I did a lot of soul searching about what I wanted to do with my life. I came to the conclusion that I want to go to law school. The problem is that on paper I don't look anything like a law school candidate. I went to one of the best prep schools in my state (New Jersey) and I currently attend a small, fairly competitive college. I have been an athlete all my life and these are the skill I used previously to get into prep school and then on to college. I was always an average student. Only recently have I truly applied myself to my studies. My cumulative GPA is a 2.61, my GPA within my major (finance) is a 3.1, and in the past semester 3.0. I have progressed in every semester since freshman year, and some how managed to get my lowest grades in my easiest classes, and higher grades in advance finance and business. I have been studying for the LSAT with books I purchased for the past month. I have barrowed money and enrolled in a Princeton Review Class in preparation for the December LSAT. I have worked to help to pay my tuition since freshman year, while playing a sport in college; I have also interned every year at various financial services firms, with an impressive resume for finance.
Thatís a little about myself....
My question is can/ how do I get into law school? I am really looking for any guidance I can get; I really need a mentor because I feel like I have none to talk to at my predominately white school. Regardless of how I look on paper I know without question that have what it takes to be successful in law school, I just need some help getting there.
I would like to go anywhere in the North East, but I am not apposed to anywhere.
