While I agree that law school tuition does not qualify as work-related education, it seems that it does qualify under the hope/lifetime learning credit.

Quote:
Qualified Education Expenses
For purposes of the lifetime learning credit, qualified education expenses are tuition and certain related expenses required for enrollment in a course at an eligible educational institution. The course must be either part of a postsecondary degree program or taken by the student to acquire or improve job skills.

Yes, the lifetime credit and the hope credit can be used.

Are there any current (or former) examiners willing to share what their GPA/LSAT score was when they applied to night programs at DC area law schools and which schools accepted them?

I applied this cycle (2006). I have a 3.2/166. I got accepted everywhere except Georgetown (where I am waitlisted).

Examiner X,
 
I know you don't want to give your life story away, but was your 3.2 earned at a "top" school or an "average" school?  Do you hold any advanced degrees or anything else that made you more attractive?  Thanks for the help!
