"a couple years" ?

if you've taken that many credits, categorically no.
It was less than 50% of their p/t program.
so how many credits did you complete? did you fail any credits? get D's? C's? still seems categorically prohibitive to me.

Re: How to Grade into the Top 10% of Your 1L Class: LemonLawSchool

Study the guides carefully on this website, and you may be pleasantly surprised by your performance. ' if you don't mind, do you think yo...

Re: Chance for 3.3 GPA, 178 LSAT, non-URM

mainly overall GPA bc that's what's being used for reporting purposes. all of this is driven by reporting purposes (rankings -> advertising). your LSAT is doing the talking here and your GPA isn't a dealbreaker for CCN. plus, it's rarer to have a 178 LSAT than 4.0 gpa so your score really gives you ...

Re: What are my chances? At 32 years old, Should I try to go to law-school. Please give me your honest feedback.

+1 to Nov scores not being too late to cop scholly. also +1 to switch from a "cycle-oriented" approach to applying to a "score-oriented" approach. it's been established that 32 isn't too old, but neither is 33. I just turned 33. I will be 34 if I go in Fall 21 yeah 34 is way too old for law school.

you working at a PI firm won't have any effect on what you do post law school.
