I am an EXTREME splitter... and I mean extreme. I will be applying with a 2.38 GPA in undergrad (University of Georgia) and a 179 on the LSAT. A major contributor to that is breaking my collarbone one semester and failing three classes that semester because unfortunately I was not granted a withdrawal even though I had to move home for the rest of the term. I also had to move home one summer to become the sole caregiver of a family member and failed an online class. I plan to submit an addendum to that effect. I have worked full time through college also, often times holding a second part-time job at the same time.
In addition to a high LSAT score, I have three strong rec letters all specifically addressing my ability to handle the academic rigors of law school, a page full of volunteer work, three years of steady (non-law) employment, a position as the executive director of a 501c3 nonprofit, and a board position for another nonprofit.
My question... where should I apply? Should I even bother with T14 schools? Tier 1 schools? Or should I go directly for tier 2 and unranked schools?
