Assuming acceptable LSAT score, would this be a successful road-map to T-14 admittance.
UG isn't curved. There's no special Ivy league curriculum that is harder than state school curriculum. Unless Harvard has magic-math and charmed-english. Why would those schools be harder?
Also. Criticizing people for going to community college without having any information on their background. I mean... Wow. And you people want to work in a service industry? I know it's the internet, but come on.
Some UGs are curved, other UGs have rampant grade inflation. It is really school- and major-specific. I imagine the same holds true for CC. So I don't think generally you can assume that you will get a higher GPA just because it is a CC - but maybe at some specific CCs it is easier to get As than others? I suppose that is something that you probably should ask students attending the specific CC you are interested in attending.
What I do know is that cost is often a deciding factor in choosing UG (as it should be). CC in general are less expensive than 4-year schools, and going to a local CC can really reduce overall UG debt (especially if you live at home). If you really want to go to law school, then I highly recommend trying to minimize UG debt. That may or may not mean going to CC for two years before transferring to a state school, depending on scholarship prospects.
