I graduated from university with a four degree (20 credits) and did not perform well in terms of grade. I went back to university for a GPA upgrade for about 2.5 years-13 full time credits in total. I graduated with a 3.7 CGPA. Although taking this path was a long road, I am glad that I went back to improve my grades since it will open doors for me to higher education. I have been working for about 1 year since then. Now my concern is: when I take the cumulative average of my CGPA-It’s 2.85 (under 3.0). But my L2 would be 3.7. I am in the process of studying for the LSAT and aim to write it in August/September and would apply in November.
With my scores, do I really have a chance in law school? I want to be realistic and practical about my chances. I have applied to a master’s program public policy with Co-op: if I get in, I am thinking of maybe pursuing that. And working for a few years and apply as a mature student. Or just making a career in public policy and forget about law school.
Preferably, I would like to go to law school, but what’s been my concern is my chances of getting in, that’s why I came up with a back up plan just in case.
I would also like to add that If I did get into law school I would be around 29. I do plan on having kids in the next few years as well. I am also taking that into consideration as well. At this point in life, I do want to make some concrete decisions about what path I want to take.
Any advice would be appreciated
