I'm 21 years old and only completed my freshman year at Rutgers University but with a decent 3.7 gpa. I had to leave school due to an illness which I am still recovering from and I'm considering taking the rest of my undergrad courses online at Northeastern University-College of Professional Studies. I'm being told that the degree will be just as good as a traditional degree. I know I'm going to miss out on extracurricular involvement and the like since I'll be doing things online, but if I pull off a nice GPA with a business or english major, say, 3.8 or 3.9, and I land a decent LSAT score, like a 168-170, do you think I would be able to get into a Tier 1 law school?
Thanks I'll really appreciate any input.
I also have the option of waiting my illness out, I expect to recover fully by 2012, and going back to RU and graduating the traditional way. That way I can get involved (I was hoping to write for the campus paper, I was involved in Toastmasters and the Feminine Law Society). Does it really matter, though? Do you think I'll be able to land an internship doing this online degree?
I could seriously use some feedback.
Not sure where your numbers will get you? Dying to know where you stand? Come have your palms read by your fellow posters!
