Additional info & updates

I don't see many folks on here with low UGPA/LSAT scores, so I wanted to add my numbers to give another data point. I had family issues in undergrad which caused poor academic performance (fully explained in addendum). It also took me 6 years to obtain my bachelors, but I was able to graduate from a top tier school. I have lots of work experience outside of my hard numbers and many "soft factors". Good luck to everyone else applying this cycle!

Here are some of the factors, included in my application:
-Currently work as a paralegal with a legal services org
-Public interest/Social Justice law focus
-Active in community organizing outside of work
-Active in labor union in current workplace
-First generation law student
-Bilingual (Spanish)
-4 rec letters (2 from profs/dean, 2 from supervisors)
-included Academic Addendum
-included diversity statement
