Yeah, I've been working between 50 and 60 hours a week for as long as I can remember. At the same time, i have performed volunteer community service, managed rock bands, raised a family and completed my UG degree.Of course, not all of this was done at the same time, but there were times when i juggled several extra-corporate activities while still putting in lots of overtime. So, if i could do BigLaw and only work 60-70 hrs/wk - and make BANK, I might really consider it.
You're going to have to be near the top of your class at any law school you can get in to if you're solidly set on biglaw with that LSAT.
Oh yeah, I forgot that YOU wrote all the rules. I'M NOT WORTHY...I'M NOT WORTHY!
Go piss up a rope.
Dude, I didn't write the rules. Don't shoot the messenger. You can go to law school, just don't expect to be making biglaw, or BANK, if you're at the median at schools that accept your numbers. If you want to do biglaw, just be ready to fight for the top few spots while your in law school.
Actually, biglaw really isn't my thing. I don't really want to be a peon for a few years for any price. Maybe I'll just becom the NEW King of Torts. But then again, money ain't everything. I've already got meoney, used to have LOTS more, and will probably have lots more again. For me, studying and practicing law is more of an intellectual goal. No doubt I'll find success regardless of my school. Of course, LSAT/prestige whores may think otherwise. They have to in order to stroke themselves.
Look, you brought up "make BANK" at 50/60hr, not me. Whether or not it's necessary, or whether you personally have what it takes to be tops at law school, is a whole different argument.
That's because the thread was about working long hours. My point was/is that 60 hrs a week is not really long hours. But unless one has worked in the real world, they might not think so. So, you're the one who brought up the lack of probability of me being able to work biglaw. Since, you don't know me, what I have accomplished, and what I am capable of doing, perhaps your comments to tell me how it really is are unnecessary. Besides, I have now changed my LSAT as it appears in my signature, so maybe NOW I have a chance.
