I agree, every parent thinks their kid has ADD or ADHD, why is that ? I was also hyperactive as a child and when it came to taking exams as an adult I always had problems focusing.  It's normal! I was stressed, every exam is stressful in one way or another.

You did a good job! I wish I had your determination, studying before even taking the class. I think it's a great thing you accomplished and I'm sure you'll do great in law school.

I also find it difficult to work and study but if you put your mind to it and if you make yourself a schedule, like Cher said above, there's no way you won't make it. Of course, it's going to be very hard to respect the schedule, you never know what unexpected things might happen but the least you can do is try hard. I hope I helped at least a little bit.

Well, you know for sure you have met their admissions standards, that should count for a celebration, don't you think? Did you get an answer from them in the end?

I have majored in Computer Science Engineering. I am an undergraduate from UCLA. I am planning to get in a good law school now. Hopefully I will. :) Wish me luck!

While the baby bar is the hardest law school bar exam I know, it is true that some manage to actually pass it. I think the key is to study so hard and not give up no matter what. After 5-6 months of intensive studying you should pass, if you took everything seriously.

Like EchPsu said, visit them and then decide. See what each of them have to offer and then make a list of pros and cons. It sounds clichè but a list of pros and cons will help a lot in your decision making.

Current Law Students / Re: Going Back to Law School.

Like cooley said, why don't you go back to your old school ? Maybe you still have your credits and you won't need to start all over again ? Just asking, maybe you have your own reasons for choosing another school.

I don't see why people would make fun of your question, it's a serious matter. In my experience I have found that it is best to go to a highly rated school for the least money you can get into. That being said, you just have to decide what you like best: paralegal work, criminal defense.. and see what your best options are. In the end it's you who has to decide, my advice is: try and visualize where you see yourself in the future.

I have heard of Walter C. Bansley, a lawyer who practices criminal defense and is quite good at it, but he's a man. His office is in New Haven. By any chance you are looking for a "he" and not for a "she"?
