Hi, everyone I am currently moving into a new city and a new school that I recently become not to happy with. I am about 5 hours from my home and want to practice law closer to my home, but decided to attend a school further away because I was not accepted to the local schools and was offered a decent scholarship at the school I am beginning to attend. My LSAT scores were only 148 and 151 so i did not expect to many acceptances and or money for attedning any law schools. Now that I am in my new city away from everything, family friends and girlfriend of 4 years, I am regretting my decision more and more. I still have the option of getting out of my lease and I am definitely considering it. This is where I need everyones help, I recently have found out that my scholarship is applied to tuition differently than I previouusly thought. This has not made me to happy and I feel that I am paying more for an education that I may not have necessarily picked a few months ago. Can you please help me with my choices???
My ideas are to stick it out and go to school. Hopefully I will be able to transfer, I know this is not a good possibilty however and I do not want to be stuck in this city for 3 years.
My other option would be to take a year off again, and study for the LSAT, I have never studied for it and took both tests cold. They are the only two LSAT's that I have taken. I would enroll in a Kaplan or Powerscore class something along those lines, work part-time and study full time for the december LSAT. I really want to attend a local school in Pittsburgh such as Duquesne, Pitt or even WVU or Penn State I would be happy with any of those.
Please help with ideas, or if you think these feelings will go away. THANX
