I scored 143 on the LSAT and my GPA is 2.5, I know my numbers are horrible but I am and ethnic minority ( puerto rican) who had to overcome many obstacles during college specially the language barrier. I would like to stay in the east coast, any chances for me??
you don't have a good chance anywhere, and anywhere you would get into would almost certainly not be worth leaving government job in exchange for mountains of debt. Work for a at least the rest of this year and study the LSAT. It is not a test you want to take without preparation, and by preparation I don't mean studying a few nights a week for a few weeks, I mean taking a prep course, getting a tutor, and working on LSAT problems for 15+hours a week every week 3-4 months before your scheduled exam. There is lots of LSAT prep information on this website (look in the LSAT specific forum). With a decently high LSAT, and URM status, and work experience you WILL have a much better chance. Hell, people have gotten into Northwestern with lower gpas.
