I agree with the two previous posts. Don't go if these are your two options. Going to any T4 is going to make the job search difficult, but some place their graduates better than others. However, going to a T4 like Whittier or Cooley that have notorious reputations for being bottom of the barrel law schools is a very unwise choice. I agree with haventgotaclue that you should spend 4 years getting a degree and explore your interests. Hell, go to ITT Tech and I bet you would be better off than if you went to either one of these law schools. I'm not trying to hate on T4's, as some have quite good reputations in their regions, but Whittier and Cooley are not one of them. Avoid and save your money. Get a bachelors degree for crying out loud.

I know Roger Williams is in Rhode Island but would one of the Boston schools be a better choice if I wanted to work in RI? My Numbers are 156/3.59 so I would go to either Suffolk or NESL. Any thoughts?

Just wondering if people think Suffolk is getting the shaft in the new rankings. The school has been slowly increasing the median LSAT and GPA, but now they drop down to 4th tier? If one were just looking at the new rankings alone, one would think Suffolk is now equal with NESL and Roger Williams. Anyone else think this years rankings are looking weird?

I just sent in my letter of intent telling them I will not be attending, so one more opening is now available.

I was going to ask for the deferral but based on the situation I don't think they will grant it to me. Plus, I have already sent in my Statement of Intent letters telling them I will not be attending. Basically, me and my wifes condo has been on the market now for six months and has yet to sell. None of the law schools near me accepted me so we would have to move for me to attend law school. Unfortunatly renting it out is not an option because being a landlord and living 3,000 miles away while I am in my 1st year would be unwise.

Hey everyone, I applied and got accepted to schools that I wanted to go to for this coming year but I can't attend this year due to unforeseen financial issues. Next year these issues should be resolved but if I apply to the same schools should I write a new personal statement or keep the one I have? Thanks.

Is pace worth going to for environmental law? US News constantly ranks them in the top 3 for environmental law. I was wondering if it is worth going to for environmental law and if graduates can get jobs in this area of law. Thanks!

Hey everyone. I took the June test and got a 156. I applied and got accepted to numerous T3 schools (some with generous scholarships) and one T2 school. However, when I was studying for and actually took the LSAT I was still in undergrad and working full time. I graduated in Dec. and wonder if you think I should retake the LSAT since I would have more time to study for it now that I am out of school. I took Testmasters as a prep course and improved from an initial diagnostic score of 142 to 156. Any thoughts?
