Hey! We have a similar situation in regard to the whole undergrad situation. Once I found Liberal Studies, I was a 4.0 student. Sucks that our history of dropping/ignoring classes hurts the LSDAS GPA. Part of it was my ignorance to the whole process, I didn't know it could hurt my GPA that much. I'm the first college grad in my family, so I didn't have much help. I also bombed September's LSAT. :/ But retaking it in November, hope to get above 150. Good luck on your applications! Hope you get into your top choice.
