tanked first few years, at a small liberal arts school.transferred to GSU, cleaned up and graduated Magna Cum laude from Georgia State University (top 15%). GSU is my number 1 choice. Crappy LSAT score, 151 first 156 second time. hoping GSU will accept me part time if nothing else.
Changed GSU app status to Part-time, just because I think it will be easier to get in that way!
