When I said "survival" what I meant was...I want to work hard, I want to do well, but first and foremost I don't want to spend 25k and fail out.  The school I'll be attending fails the bottom 15% and if everything is riding on one exam, people who have a bad test day could face some serious consequences.

So like I said...I want to survive, and in 3 years, I want to have graduated from law school.

I'll be a 1L in the fall...is it stupid to set my goals not at top 10%, not at LR, but rather at pure survival?

Ya...that's probably not going to happen.

I'm not old, but I'm not fresh out of school either...I just don't think I can wait another year just to take a test, especially if I don't do well, again.

I really did put in time for the LSAT. Probably about 1.5 hours a day, took a full test once a week. Did this for about 2 months.

The school I'll be attending fails out the bottom 15%

What would you suggest?  I worked in TV for 2.5 years and that's a profession crumbling faster than news papers.

I've tried looking for PR work but was unsuccessful.  I'm really hoping I do well in school and can land a decent job in Texas.  Is that really that far-fetched an idea?

my GPA was a 2.9, my LSAT a 151...and the truth is I did put in some study time for the exam.

The tuition is about 25k per year...I was rejected from the only state school I applied to.

It just seems like the extra education would help me late in life.  On the other hand, I do have about 15k saved up and am absolutly terrified of failing out of law school.

my gpa in my undergrad was sub-par...lsat wasn't through the roof either. the school i'm attending is in my home town so staying with my parents helps me save some cash.

is making under 60 that bad? i would think it would lead to higher paying jobs over the next 10 years?

Is it just the current economy that's making it hard to find jobs?

Like I said, I'll be at a 4th Tier school and part of the reason I'm going is a tough job market.  I'm hoping to find something when I'm done with school that pays decent and will lead to higher paying jobs through time.

Not much you can do now-a-days with a Communications degree...I'm hoping law school is the right choice
