Throwing out this profile...Interested if anyone would tell me what they think of my chances at law school. Also, if someone could also recommend a strong counseling advisor for the law school application process. I am interested in applying to the following schools in order:
3) William and Mary
7) Cumberland School of Law
Dickinson School of Law
I attended the Naval Academy and graduated with a 2.91 GPA and a 3.4 GPA in my major (the GPA is a direct result of Chemisty, Thermodynamics, and Weapons Engineering Classes). I have a BS in History. I have heard that Law Schools take a look at individual performance and course load in particular. Wanted to know if somone can validate that. I scored a 169 on the LSAT. I do not plan on taking the test again at this time. I have completed multiple combat tours and will have strong recommendations.
My weakness is my GPA. Anybody got advice? Need to take the LSAT again? Veteran friendly Law Schools? Any advice about how to approach the low GPA---does it deserve an explanation as to the curriculum. My expectation is that the school will be aware of that and it doesn't deserve explanation.
