To me it sounds like you have a pretty good chance to go wherever you want.  A 3.8 GPA is fantastic.  It doesn't matter that you weren't challenged while obtaining it.  Your full time work and marine status should help overcome the lack of extracurriculars.  You should be in good shape.

I give you a very high congratulations on returning to the LSAT.  That's terrific.  I don't think you'll have as much trouble as you might think dealing with the other students.  They may think of you as the old person, but so what?  Young people always think of age as a more important factor than older people do.  You may end up being a mentor-like person to some of your classmates which could be very rewarding to you.

Unless absolutely necessary, you shouldn't restrict yourself geographically.  You may be passing up a great opportunity at a school somewhere else.  You can always come back to New York after school if that's where you really want to be.

Testmasters is very good, but like you pointed out it is quite expensive.  In my opinion, if you are serious about the LSAT, you need to do whatever is in your power to improve your score.  If you're able to shell out the money and it is worth it to you, then do it.  If you're not sure about it or don't have the option to spend that much, there are certainly cheaper alternatives.  It's really up to you.  Like you said, there is a lot more prep material in Testmasters, but you have to look at your situation and decide what you want to do.

I think that professional prep materials are very important and worth the money (although 1500 seems kinda high).  Just think about how important this exam is to you.  You should do whatever you can to get the best score within your ability.

This is a good topic to be brought up.  It's so easy to give up and give in, especially for young people.  This is such an important part of your life that you can't give up.  You have to stick it out, keep your head up, and put as much effort into it that you can.  This can be a life lesson.  The discipline and hard work this takes can be applied to many situations for the rest of your life.

Wow.  I love the coursecracker site.  I've somehow never managed to come across that on my own.  I just joined this forum today and it's already paid off.  Thanks for the share.

I like that you mentioned that you should treat this as a job, since it most likely will affect your future career.  I think it's a wake up call for a lot of people who are used to the more simplistic undergrad classes and they think they may be able to skate by through this as well.  Hopefully they'll soon realize this isn't the case (or they'll be looking for a new career path).

Hello all.  Just found this board and it looks pretty great.  Just thought I'd say hello before I jumped into all the other threads.
