The LSAT is important because schools think it's important. Unless you think the school you go to doesn't matter, the LSAT is a big fat hairy deal.

I'm actually surprised that people speak of GGU like it's a terrible school. I have never attended GGU, but the only two attorney's that I know of who graduated from GGU are some of the best attorney's in my area. One particular graduate, is the only attorney in the area who has filed three successful lawsuits against my employer and won every single case, lol. (The guy is known for being a shark in the courtroom)
. After reading it, it most def seems as though O.J. did it.
So forgive me for saying that I can't believe anyone who is of "incredible intelligence" could fail out of law school unless there is an insane forced attrition policy.
Interestingly, lower tier law schools like GGU are usually far less tolerant of academic underperformers than higher ranked schools. One of the biggest criticisms of tier 4 schools is that they admit large numbers of unqualified students, and then eliminate 25-35% through academic attrition. At a school like GGU the grading curve is probably set somewhere around 2.5-2.6. By comparison, Hastings has a curve of (I think) 3.2. Considering that all ABA law schools teach nearly identical first year curricula, it's probably easier to get a 3.0 GPA at Hastings than it is at GGU.
34% of law graduates from the class of 2011 are working in a job that doesn't require a law license.
Which is worth enrolling in more, an MBA or an LLM? (assuming you already have a JD or are jointly enrolled) and why?
I'd say the way to go is to go to law school if you must. Do your best. Then vote Democrat until the day you die because Republicans are the a-holes who made student loan debt non-dischargable in bankruptcy.
Yeah, those a-holes. The very idea of thinking that the government shouldn't let intelligent adults blithely off the hook after they have signed contracts to pay a price they agreed to pay in exchange for something they wanted. Fuckers.
But I honestly do want to be an attorney more than anything, and have always wanted to.
