Law School Admissions / Re: Unranked Undergraduate

I agree with AlwaysSunny. It does matter a little where you went to school but as long as you study hard and keep your scores up you shouldn't encounter any problems.

Tim, if you say you need to study more to get an even higher LSAT score I'd say you'll nail it at the real exam. What school do you want to apply to?

Well, if you have extra issues that you feel the need to write down, you could write one but with such a good LSAT score and GPA I'd say you can easily get into law school.

From what I heard, it's hard to get a job even as a janitor with the economy these days so, yeah, attending law school doesn't mean you'll necessarily be a lawyer after you graduate.

If you're really good, someone might hire you in no time, it's just that the employer need to deal with a lot of paperwork and stress to make you a "legal employee" so to say :)

Have you decided what to do yet?
I work as a project manager, at an IT firm and so I managed to put some money aside but I was already working when I decided to attend law school. I know it's hard but with a bit of luck everything might turn out OK for you.

Job Search / Re: Joining the military - last resort or smart consideration?

If I were in this situation, I'd apply to more firms and yeah, use the military as a very last resort. In the end, I presume you want to work in the law field, right?

That's a great site, ResumeLaunchpad. It' still earḷy for me to apply to any jobs in the law domain but I'll keep it in mind for later.

I'll just go back on topic now :)
Are you sure you want to take and retake the LSAT over and over again? You already scored better than most of potential law students.

In my opinion, ADHD is overrated, but I'm not a doctor so... If you trust yours maybe you should take the medicine. You can't rely on the results of just 2-3 tests, take more tests by yourself and then decide what to do.
