LSAT Story/Law School Question

09 January 2011 - 01:21 AM

I recently got my results from the December LSAT, and I got a 161. This has brought about an interesting situation.

I already have a job, I have been a college professor/debate coach for five years and I am currently enrolled in a doctoral program (EdD). I took the LSAT because three of my debaters were taking it as they plan to go to law school and I thought it would be neat to take it together. (unfortunately, some of them did poorly, and all of them scored lower than I did)

Funny thing is, I originally wanted to go to law school, which is why I debated in high school and college. But, when I was successful in debating as an undergraduate, I ended up going to grad school and becoming a debate coach in college.

Now, I am kind of torn. I probably don't stand a chance at getting into a good school. My undergraduate GPA was low (think 2.6 low) and even though I have a 3.65 gpa in over 70 hours of graduate work (because my understandign is that law schools don't officially consider graduate work). However, I am going to apply to a bunch of local schools (I am in North Carolina) and see what happens.

Question: For those of you who know - will law schools consider my work experience and graduate work and overlook my undergraduate gpa? What kind of schools do you think I could get into?

Truth is, unless something amazing came up it would be hard for me to give up my career (and my paycheck) to go to law school. But, I'd be lying if I didn't admit I am giddy thinking about the possibility.

New 250gb XBOX Slim

What is the best deal going? There was a power surge at my house yesterday, and despite being plugged into a surge protector, my xbox 360 is now red ringing it. I was looking for a reason to buy the new model, and I guess now I have one.

EDIT: OR, for about 3 dollars more, I could change out the motherboard, processor, ram and graphics card for :

MSI R4350-MD512H Radeon HD 4350 512MB 64-bit GDDR2 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card

G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10600) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model F3-10600CL9D-4GBPK

AMD Sempron 140 Sargas 2.7GHz Socket AM3 45W Single-Core Processor SDX140HBGQBOX

Foxconn A6GMV AM3 AMD 690G Micro ATX AMD Motherboard

The processor would not be dual core, but it would draw less power. Also, the RAM would be considerably faster.

I know it is available overseas, but does anyone know if any of the versions will work in my PS3?
