LSAT horror stories / Re: I hate my life

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.

General Board / Re: Did anyone else feel this way in their second year?

It took my first year to get the real hang of it. 2L is way better for me. I guess I could see how fairytales could get ruined and bubbles popped but I went into it knowing what to expect for the most part as far as "the reality" of the legal field goes so I didn't get shocked with tinkerbell didnt use fairdust to make me fly. I just learned to get used to the sacratic and irac and it took a few exams to get used to it, and my first grades shook the cocky undergrad out of me, but once I pulled my head out of my rear(2L) it has been great. Why wouldn't it be once you get the hang of it?
This is the dream people, don't like it then wake up and pull up some overalls and steel toed boots. Those are the options.

Anyone have exams recently or coming up? Any opinions or thought about this round?

General Board / Re: 1 year later....still glad u went to law school?

I am a 2L and never been happier. People who give up in 1L are quiter and I am glad that they don't pollute our pool anymore. Of course the first few terms are hard, they're a gatekeeper, same as the bar, but once you get the hang of it it gets easy and even fun.

It's like running, the first mile is a female dog but do it everyday and soon you get pissed if you don't have the chance to do a few lapse each day. Same with anything else if life. Get into it or die, too bad so many pick the latter....... :-\

Heck I've seen people with GED get into lawschool and do just fine. Its what you do AFTER highschool that matters.

Even undergrad dosn't matter anymore.

I would never cancel. Most lawschools pick the highest of the scores anyways. Why waste your time and money?
