Hey kids,
Any non-traditional students out there?
I"m re-taking the LSAT on 5dec, but am confident I can get in somewhere, I just don't know where that somewhere is....any good stories about overcoming low grades or test scores?

You're going to have to define non-traditional a little better, it means many things.

Older, married, been out of school long, work experience, worked as a fluffer, what?

Work experience definitely helped me overcome low grades. You've got to sell it well, though.

What do you mean "sell" work experience?
