<p>My name is Joshua, and I am a male, Asian American (specifically Korean), and grew up in a low-income household. Currently I have a 3.4 GPA at UCLA with a psychology degree (maybe 3.5 by the time I graduate). Also I am a transfer, with a 3.7 GPA at my city college. I was thinking of law as a profession but not sure if I should pursue it. From what I heard, there's still a lot of discrimination in law schools (things like it's a white people's network) but most of this was from years ago and I was wondering if this was true. </p>
<p>Also what will I need to get into law school? I know I need an excellent LSAT score, letters of rec, and a good personal statement because of my low GPA (is that GPA even low)???
Also the type of extracurriculars I will need (or do law schools even look at that)?</p>
<p>And a few questions about law school. I heard the job market is harsh, but is there a difference in job demands with different lawyering fields? (environmental, immigration, etc)</p>
<p>Is there financial benefits for law school, me being an Asian American who lived in poverty?</p>
<p>And last but not least, do I need to graduate from a T14 school to have a higher chance of getting a job as a lawyer (I want to be an immigration, environmental, or lawyer of civil rights of poor Asian Americans). And will I need a higher GPA to get into these top dog schools?</p>
<p>I have a lot of extracurriculars, I am involved in research, leadership, activism, etc!!</p>
<p>I was planning, after I graduate to find internships, history classes, and math to help me prepare for law school. I was a transfer so I'm going to take classes at my city college (in which I have a 3.7 GPA)</p>
