The most successful one had a 2.5 in undergrad and under 155 on the lsat. If you want to be a lawyer, do it. If not, don’t. Your scores will mean nothing a year from now.
If they're successful now, they likely went to law school a while ago. Things have changed, primarily the cost of law school and the oversaturation of the legal market. You can't extrapolate from individual past success what good options are now; the OP needs to look at the employment statistics for schools where their stats are competitive, and determine whether the kinds of jobs they can get out of their options are worth the cost.
I know that’s the mob mentality these days. May be somewhat more true than in the past. I know many recent grads with average undergrad scores who are now easily doing what they want in law. Not saying you’re completely wrong, but the new mob mentality regarding this matter is something I do not buy into to, and someone shouldn’t make their decision based off their gpa/lsat especially when they are well above average.
