Extra Curricular Information

Low GPA was from the Naval Academy in Aerospace Engineering, and I believe it might have gotten a slight bump due to grade deflation at many schools.

I also have an Engineering MS with a much more respectable GPA which might have helped, and graduated from Navy Test Pilot School.

I think what really helped me punch above my numbers though was my 10 years as a Naval Flight Officer, including multiple deployments and a few years flight testing aircraft and drones.

Moral of my story is that many top 10 schools will overlook a horrible GPA, but you have to give them a reason. For K-JDs with low gpas I highly recommend finding something else meaningful to you to try for a few years: you might really enjoy it, and it should help out your chances of you eventually decide on law.

Kept the softs out until all initial decisions were in, but adding them now for future applicants sake.

ADDITIONAL INFO & UPDATES

On scholarships : I have the GI Bill and applied mostly to schools that cover 100% tuition between GI Bill and Yellow Ribbon Program. BU and BC do not have great Yellow Ribbon Program but made up the difference with scholarship offers.

I'm surprised you haven't been offered any scholarships with your good LSAT score...
