Please don't go to law school unless you retake and get a 168+

lol, the people on this board can be really harsh, but this is probably TCR, as bluntly stated as it was.

The 160 is fine, but what's with that GPA? Were there extenuating circumstances or something? If not, why do you think you will be able to perform in law school if you barely had a GPA that allows you to graduate?

my ugpa was a 2.6, LSDAS converted it to a 2.13.

I worked my entire college career. Started out on the pre med track, failed calc, chem, bio and physics. I switched majors to economics and made mostly B's for the remainder of school.

I graduated two years ago, been taking evening courses towards a masters degree in economics. I am still working full time as a paralegal, and maintaining a 3.7 gpa in my masters program.

just wanted to see what the consensus was on my chances , got a pretty clear idea now....

I don't think 3 or 4 responses is a consensus.
You should go to http://www.lawschoolnumbers.com.
You'll need to perfect your statement of purpose, polish your resume, and make sure your LORs are stellar.
Only you know the hidden cost of not pursuing your dream.

You failed math and three different sciences before realizing that maybe pre-med was a bad idea? :shock: No clue before then that it just wasn't your thing?

Retake or don't go. You won't get into a school worth going to with those numbers.
