I'll give you the benefit of the doubt, and assume that you're not a troll...

If you really are certain that you have a job lined up after graduation, then I would look at some non-ABA approved schools in the area where you would be working. As I understand it, sometimes graduates of non-ABA approved schools are allowed to take the bar in the state where the school is located.

As others have suggested, you could also look for the Tier 4 schools with the lowest admissions standards and simply apply to every one of them. I'm not optimistic that you'll get in with your numbers, but you're welcome to try. I wish I could be more supportive, but it's going to be very difficult to get into law school with those numbers. There's nothing I or anyone else can do to change that (unless you want us to hold a gun to an admission's officer's head and demand that they let you into school). Law school admissions is mostly a numbers game, and very few (no?) schools are going to accept someone with those numbers.

See, this is part of the problem. It's no wonder that you have a bad GPA and a worse LSAT score. Understanding proper English is key to the legal profession.

Also, if Daddy has your whole life planned out for you (i.e. is giving you a job, making you partner, cares so much about you being a lawyer, etc...) why not just have Daddy cut a big check to some school to let you in? Some of those crap schools would love a nice donation, and since they aren't taking the top applicants, what do they care if they have one more kid with a sub 3.0 GPA and LSAT in the lowest 15%?

By the way, I would love it if you became a judge. It would be so comforting to know that there's one more judge out there with no grasp on reality with a wholly undeserved inflated sense of self-worth.

y'know, op, i thought a lot of folks had midtreated you here unfairly, but i take it back. you're acting like a rich, spoiled jerk.

great, daddy has a job for you, you didn't need to put any effort into undergrad, and as long as you slouch through some un-accredited law school, you'll be set. you've taken none of the good advice from folks like minneapolisite and you've acted like you're entitled to some high-falutin' judgeship. you're a regular george w bush, except your daddy's not as impressive.

if any of us going to good schools get uppity with you (and not others), its for one reason only: we worked for it and we earned it.
