would it be better to apply early with around a 3.37 or wait until january and apply with around a 3.48. my ideal schools are like u of m twin cities, ucla, and CO boulder. what kind of lsat should i aim for to make up for my less than spectacular gpa?

Loans out the ass.

Not worried about it though, the new fed loan forgiveness program is pretty nice.

i thought that program was just for teachers and nurses?

Hi Everyone,

I was just looking at LSNs and it made me curious how everyone is paying for their education? If you are one of the unfortunate ones that has to take out student loans are you worried about paying them back? What is the job market like for lawyers? How about the chances of getting a job after law schoo?

doesn't it depend on whether or not your own school counts the Ws against your gpa?

is it true that if you take the lsat more than once than both scores are averaged together?

I would love for someone to chime in & tell us that they repeated a course, and that their institution did not put either the grade or the number of units from the original course on their transcript. I would be interested to know what kind of school does that..i.e. community college, a certain state university system, etc.

I worked as a college counselor at a Top 25 public university and IIRC, if a student repeated a course, I think the original number of units would show up but I know for a fact that the original grade would not.

so does that mean if i retake a course and it only shows my second grade and the fact i retook the class then i wouldnt count the original grade into my LSDAS GPA? only the second one?
