I have just created an account in the LSAC website. I am interested in attending law school as a perspective student. I am not so sure where to begin. I feel that I may be disqualified for a number of reasons, but I believe that I can do it? I know and realize that I need to network and increase and update my skills. Unfortunately I have never been a paralegal, nor do I have any experience. All that I have are a bachelor's degree, a resume, a cover letter, a spotty job history, and some graduate experience. I majored in mathematics and have taken graduate courses in mathematics education. I need to know how to network, apply for law school, network, and pay for law school. The networking thing is very important. I don't have a lot of support and I am in need of support. I don't even know how long it will take to gain enough support and update my skills. I realize that I have limited experience and limited skill and I am over 25-35. Where should I begin? How do I write a statement? Should I consider another major? I also admit to a lack of self confidence which would probably hurt me more than anything. Should I even consider a law degree and if so, how long would it take for me to improve myself so that I will receive that law degree and become a lawyer? Your help would be greatly appreciated.
