I am completely nervous about applying to law school... I live in Ohio so I have limited choices on where I can go. My GPA is not the best; I messed up my 2nd year and it ruined my GPA (and ever since being on the Dean's List barely raised it). And I got in the low 150's on my LSAT. So given this, I pretty much should decide between Dayton and Capital. But I know both are ranked very low. I wanted so much to go to Case Western, but my 2nd year ruined that chance. Any advice on what I should do, or any other schools that I should consider (and that I have a chance of getting into)? Also, does applying for early decision help your chances? Someone told me that applying to Case as an early decision may increase my chances... And I am retaking my LSAT in Sep.
Why, pray tell, do you rely on the advice of annonymous bloggers who do not have a vested interest in your future? You've made some solid observations. Lesson 1 of law school: take the facts, analyze, and reach a conclusion. Instead of wasting your energy writing an exegesis on why a buffoon is a buffoon, pay attention to yourself, and your feelings on where is a better fit. The best thing I ever did was disregard the stupidity of the posturing on this board and enroll at the school whose modus operandi best jibed with mine. If I were to help prospectives, I'd yell this from the rooftop and get rid of useless "Which is a better school?" threads. You'll understand soon enough.
Good luck and congratulations on getting accepted!
Its not that im relying on any one persons information, but rather trying to expand my understanding by looking at others perspectives. I donít feel that I have wasted my time however, I genuinely had a good time exposing the weaknesses in his argument. Thank you for your advise, in the past, the people that have given me the best advise, have said exactly that.
