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 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.
