I've got a 2.9 GPA from UC Berkeley in English. I'm taking the December LSAT (The delay is due to significant personal issues). I really do want to attend a good law school in California (Ranging from Stanford to Loyola Marymount), but I know full well my GPA is a huge obstacle to overcome. In addition, I've had a year off but have not accomplished much due to the same said personal issues. Am I in over my head here? Should I hold off applying until next year? I feel like if I take another year off I'm going to lose it.

Read this: http://www.top-law-schools.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=167565&p=4813213#p4813213

With that said...TBH, you're probably out at most schools in CA. Be wary of attending lower ranked schools because the competition is really intense in CA. Just think about it...

SF market = Stanford, Berkeley, Davis, Hastings, McGeorge, Santa Clara, Golden Gate, USF, etc etc
LA market = UCLA, USC, Pepperdine, Loyola, Southwestern, UCI, plus all the shitty tiny law schools that I don't know the names of (ie, California Western blablabla)

Plus you have people who went to T14s outside of California trying to come back after graduation to work here again. It's not a pretty picture. If you get a 160-ish, you're kinda screwed. If you get a 170-ish, you could possibly be going to WUSTL or Northwestern. Do you see why it's IM-fucking-POSSIBLE to answer your question without any semblance of an LSAT score?

We can't really help you without an LSAT on your side, but if it helps for motivation, if you kill it on the LSAT you'll have some okay options.
