Ok seriously. They sent me a fee waver a packet and an email invitation to an open house at the end of september. I have a 2.06 GPA and a 159 LSAT. Is someone at the admissions office drunk? Do they send this to everyone just to screw with them? I am praying just to get into a T4 school. Why would a top 20 school do that to me. It must be like in the movie Never been kissed where Drew Barrymore gets invited to the prom by the popular guy and he shows up and throws eggs on her prom dress. I am going to call them tomorrow and ask if I can talk to the practical joker who keeps sending me this stuff and tell them that it is not nice being mean to underacheivers
You are correct about the referrals. And I do have quite a few atty friends in Houston. But suprisingly the one's who are doing the best have the smallest % of busisnes from referrals. I have one freind practicing family law (who is not such a good business person) and he is running his practice on about 90% referrals. He is starving right now. You gotta make it happen for yourself and count on referrals only to be used for the Harley Davidson fund!
I do have a friend who is going to help me. He is a bankruptcy atty. Started out on his own right away and has been practicing for about 4 years now. But if you think about it it is just like any other business. You are providing a service. I plan on taking out small business loans keeping my overhead low in the beginning and sinking most of my working captiol into advertising. How would a network of freinds help? Maybe they could give me money or buy me beer when I am initially up to my eyes in debt but other than that I really don't think they would be all that beneficial. Most people who file bankrupty or divorce just go to the yellow pages or respond to advertising just like they would for any other service that they don't frequently use. There really is alot of money out there for atty's who are willing to help JoBob save his trailer and then help Suzie take it from him when they get divorced. And on top of that you get repeat from JoBob who will likely get a couple of DWI's while he tries to drink his sorrows away

just realized that your moniker said BLAKE aggie, and not BLACK aggie.
i always thought you were a black man going to school but had a white kid.
I think there would have been some serious paternity issues if I were black. As it is I am just a light shade of khaki.

Ok the deadline for spring admissions (yes this school has a spring admission)is Oct. 1st. I have everything in my LSDAS account done except I am waiting on 2 letter of Rec.'s They were mailed this week so I am assuming about 2 weeks until they will be posted in my account. My question is should I go ahead and send my app to the law school or should I wait until those letters show up in my account? Is it better to send the application now and let the letters catch up or wait and let LSAC send them a coplete file? Any help greatly appreciated!!

It is an immediate way to have my own business. I could not think of any other business ideas that suited my strenghts better than law. I could probably start another business cheaper and sooner but I think a law practice will be more profitable in the long range than landcaping or consulting etc..

159 first practice to a 164 average practice high of 168. All timed...Real LSAT 159 Three months of work for nothing. I am sure you will do better though. I honestly think that I overprepped and put too much pressure on myself during the real test.
