I have a 2.64 in Civil Engineering from the University of Texas. My LSAT is a 162. Softs: I was the president of my Fraternity. I worked for 3 years in at an engineering firm doing project management work. I am currently a Peace Corps Volunteer. Before leaving for the PC I took 4 night MBA classes with a GPA of 3.75 to prove I was not an idiot for when I returned.

Schools:
U of Houston
DePaul
Georgia
William and Mary
GW
St. Mary's
Penn State
Texas Tech
Baylor
SMU
Cincinnati

I appreciate it. Thanks

I hope that admissions committees take major into consideration when looking at your GPA! I figure the MBA GPA will help a little too, but even with that taken into consideration I think U Houston is the best school on your list that you have a decent shot at getting into. Georgia, WM, GW have LSAT medians higher than your score and you need a school where your LSAT score sticks out because of your GPA.

To the best of my knowledge, schools will only look at your UGPA.
