T3/T6 chances for a non-traditional student

Postby Diulm118 » Mon Nov 14, 2016 5:39 pm

I will be applying to Law School next year, and was wondering what my chances are for HYS and T6 Law Schools

Dropped out of college a few years ago to pursue acting full time. Did well but decided it wasn't for me.

Transferred into a new University and my current GPA in college is a 4.0 but I have two years of grades from before I dropped out, so my LSAC GPA will end up being 3.59 or so upon graduation.

My focus was not on my grades when I dropped out of college. Since returning to College all my grades have been A's and I have Professors willing to address my GPA disparity.

I feel as if I have two options right now. Delay my graduation until the fall semester of 2017 so I can continue raising my GPA. I would declare myself a double major and take classes that would go towards my second major. My other option would be to focus all of my energy on the LSATS.

My LSAC GPA will be around a 3.59 but will it matter for T3 or T6 schools if my post-drop-out GPA is a 4.0, my professors vouch for me, and that my story validates?

I would say you'd benefit mostly from graduating and practicing full time for the LSAT, trying you best on the first and trying to do better if needed. Don't wait until the last second to take your first LSAT. Tbh, GPA is not as important as LSATs, and the amount of improvement you can do with 1 or 2 extra semesters on your GPA would pale in comparison to what studying for the LSAT for that amount of time would do. Conclusion: all in on the LSAT.


I see. That makes a lot of sense. Thank you.
