Your major/s mean very, very, very, very little. Paramount are your GPA and your score on the LSAT. If I may make a recommendation, I'd suggest not attending law school right away and spending some time instead as a patent examiner. If patent prosecution is still what you're interested in after really getting to know what it's about, it will still be an option, and you'll have work experience to help bulk up your resume. They're also paid very well, so you can reduce your law school debt if you eventually do choose to attend.

Happy to report that I crushed my crim final. Kicked butt. I just made some rookie mistakes the first time around that I didn't make on the final.

Your school has midterms and finals.....?  Is this normal?

I'm thinking the "first time around" he's referring to was his first semester in law school, and that he's bounced back in the second semester.

This train wreck has run its course.

You should really only go to either of those schools if you 1) have a job as a lawyer lined up so it doesn't matter where you go, 2) are guaranteed not to pay a dime to go there and won't be out anything but time and possibly lost income, or 3) both.

The best course of action for explaining anything:

1. Specific cause and effect.
2. Specific steps taken to resolve.
3. Documented improvement over significant period of time.

If you really want to stay in Seattle but can't get into Seattle U, don't go to law school. If you have to study harder and retake the LSAT, do everything you can to get into UW.
