Anything Else (optional): I know you don't like hearing excuses, but my GPA's low because I took hard electives outside my majors (Calculus, Organic Chem, Biology-when I didn't have to... don't know why!) Everyone's been telling me, regardless of my GPA, that McGill's a hard school and US schools take that into account... I'm not that convinced. Any other schools I should consider, please let me know! Thanks. And I'm not a frequent user, so I may not get the TLS abbreviations :)

LSDAS GPA: 3.2
LSAT: 177
URM: Ginger
UG: Northern Arizona University
Work: Lots of random work before UG. Part time during senior year of UG. Nothing major.
Soft: Tons of humanitarian volunteer work in Russia, Romania, Chile, Peru, Uganda, Kenya, 13 different trips for a total of about 7 months. Going to Uganda and Kenya again this summer for 2 weeks to a month.
Region: Coasts, Colorado, Illinois, Arizona, Tennessee, Ann Arbor
