I'm sure you will fine, just take an lsat prep course if your worried. They can be online or in person.

As for paying $100k vs a scholarship, please don't fall for that BS, common undergrad myth that will kill you if you fall for it. t1 dosn't mean jack as far as "Guarenteed job", no such thing exists. Besides if that bothered you then don't apply at Michigan, like I tried telling you they are NOT prestigeous anyways. If you can't get into ivy league then don't waste you time with asking if debt is a good idea(it isn't) If you can't get into an IVY league lawschool, then take any scholarship you can. You won't listen and will end with a mediocure degree with a topnotch debt, but thats you life, do what you want.

At least your smart enough now to assume what your lsat will be before taking it. I see that a lot. I'd say damn near 90% of people think they will be the top 10%.  Don't worry, none of the law school is michigan are exactly prestigous topnotch schools(although they will lie untill your ears bleed about it) Heck there is a reason why Ava Maria moved its lawschool to Florida.

Basicly if you apply, and you don't have down syndrom, you will get in.

As a 2L I can tell you that the classes get harder but feel easier.
Best example would be if you show up out of shape to fitness camp. At first you throw up while running the mile, but after a few months they start making you run 2miles but you feel the way you felt before after only half a mile, its still harder you just are more fit and can handle it with less stress.

It shouldn't hurt you any to tell them. Most lawschools give extra time on finals to those diagnosed with learning and reading disabilties and it should help you(and your gpa) if you get that edge. You did good with your lsat score but imagine how much better you could do with your legally entitled extra time? Basicly if they ask on the application then answer honestly. If they don't ask, then don't mention it right then if you don't want to but for sure mention it to student services before exams the first term to get those accomadations if your doctor says you qualify for them and will document it for you.

It may help you count as a URM under disability(not sure but you can check with each school to find out) I know that some in wheelchairs get an extra "bump" that way.

Why'd you choose to study abroad?

As long as the ABA is ok  with your degree you should be fine. I'd ask them.

Just file a tax return each year. If you miss one you can make up by asking a CPA to help.
Which costs more, paying a CPA to give you a sheet saying you are aces, or 3 years in lawschool for a job at GM?

I hope that you undergrads know that the "curve" on the lsat only will infuluence your percentile, (which is looked at) but NOT your score.
a 142 won't go up if everyone else got a 130 that day, its still a `142, you'll just have a helluvalotbetter percentile. Lawschools look at both.

Its just politics(as is life) Lawyers tend to be white men with rich white male fathers. They try to mix that up with adding lower income, women, minorities, excons, whatever they can to spice it up. The govt gives grants based on that and the public ones in some states have quotas that are mandatory to meet. If you need a hispanic woman and the only one who applied is a 2.0 from community college with a 142 lsat, she's in.
Take the advantage, but you asked and thats why it is what it is, for better or worse I guess.

Why transfer if you are in the bottom half of your class? You should worry less about your schools ratings and more about the fact that you are in the bottom half of your class. Someone who graduates from even an online lawschool is lightyears ahead of someone who flunks out of harvard.
