I hate to break it to you, but law schools don't give a shit. They don't get points for having applicants from Ivies, they get points from having applicants with high GPAs. I knew kids from community colleges with 170+ at my T6.

It sounds like you're already into the politics game. Why don't you ride that out for a few years before going off to law school? Interrupting your career to spend three years in law school could be a huge mistake. It's all about who you know, and three years in the classroom you're not going to meet very many people.

I'm a little Scranton activist who thinks politics is the best route for me to help the most people. Got lucky, now I'm doing something with it.

I met an old dude once who told hilarious Biden stories (not because they were negative but because this guy was so ridiculous in his anti-Biden ways ... jealousy?) ... However - little known fact, Hillary's parents are both buried in Scranton.

Lol everyone at Harvard now knows my GPA after this post which I'm sure will not go unseen. <3

If you went to Harvard use the pre-professional advisors at your house (actual Harvard Law students and grads), not TLS.

If you want actual advice:
Being from Harard won't help, as many people pointed out. Take the LSAT, aim for 170s. As less people apply, the high end scores will become increasingly rare. Your low GPA will keep you out of some GPA picky schools in the T14 (eg HYS). However, apply CCN on down with a 172+. You will probably get GULC with that, but do not ED. Apply to all these other schools because you need one of them to give you money for a bargaining chip with GULC. NW, UVA or Cornell may give you money with a high enough LSAT. GULC will likely match (they tend to refuse to match any non-T14, hence why getting a T14 to give you money is crucial).

You go ahead and raise $1.2 million for a startup and more for candidates, while steering a candidate with 12% name recognition to the top job in the state .... at 20 years old. Enjoy trolling on this website while I get a boost mentally from your insecurity.

TBH, you probably have a better chance getting a decent job now than going to some shit law school with your TTT GPA.

you should change your last name to harvard.

Or maybe your first name? That way, you'll make sure everyone knows where you went to school

PS:

5 classes are from Harvard Kennedy and 3 are from Harvard Law - as an Undergrad. So half of my courses are grad.

to get back on topic and to resist my urge to be a total dick to you,

A 3.3 is low, assuming you're non-urm, youre gonna need a reasonably high lsat to get Georgetown, notwithstanding the fact you're a rennaisance man

I have a feeling you just like to hear yourself talk (or read yourself type).
