Help with Personal statement/Grades

Postby donayre21 » Sat Aug 13, 2011 12:12 am

Hi, my name is Miguel I'm currently attending Birmingham charter high school and currently in my last year of high school (12th grade).
I have had an interest on law since middle school and would greatly appreciate it if I could get some help with my Personal statement and hear some suggeastions on what I should do about my GPA.
Currently my GPA is 2.97 because my skills on chemistry and Physics were not that admirable during that time which made me end up with the results of a D in my second semester of chemistry(10th) and first semester of physics( 11th grade) even do I past physics the second year with an A.I also took chemistry first semester during summer school and was able to pass it with a B.I have recently talked to my councilor and she has explained to me now.... that I need to take physics and chemistry if I want to be able to apply to a UC.I have asked her about a way of retaking my classes in adult school or online which she has denied to both because they are not able to give them online or at adult school.

Can any of you try to help me I'm getting to the point that I want to drop out :( because I have not planed to go to other school other than a UC for example UCLA and dont really know if they will still accept me because those are the only 2 classes that are in my way towards my goal,I really dont know if they will affect me because I heard that most of law school has to do with history or writing which I have already taken during my school year.

I'm not sure what you are asking, but keep working at those classes.

You need an undergraduate degree before you can even think about attending law school. It is your GPA in your undergraduate that will be considered by law schools for admission. They won't care how you did in high school. Get into the best college you can, work as hard as you can, and keep that GPA up. Good luck to you. You've got years before you will need this forum.
