AA Male 2.4/160 Am I doomed?

Postby jamesbond » Tue Sep 27, 2011 7:35 pm

25 yrs old. I do have WE, (beginning my second year as a junior paralegal at a major LA firm), but other than that, not much else to write home about. Worked on and off through undergrad.

Any hope for T1?

Thanks in advance for all responses.

edit: I'd like to stay within the SoCal area if possible, but am open to relocation.

Yes, you have hope of being admitted to a lower Tier One law school if you offer a solid explanation for your low GPA.

By yes, are you referring to T1 as T50 or T100? Sometimes I get get confused. Thanks.
