How old are you? It will be an uphill battle for you, since law school - and many parts of the profession - are such high stress situations. I know how bipolar affected persons can react to high stress situations, and I'm sure you do too. Many people say that the first year of law school is the most trying of their life - you and your therapist should be prepared for whatever effect this will have on you in interaction with your conditions.
I think you're wrong.
you're starting to try too hard.titcr

great....another couple hundred lawyers in the pool. I really think law school admission needs to be more like med schools. All the bad ones can go to puerto rico, the caribbeans, brazil, etc.

if u want to practice in ohio region, go to CWR.If you want to practice in the Baltimore/Annapolis/MD and to an extent, the DC region, then go to MD. Keep in mind though, the legal market in Baltimore is small. Only 3/4 firms come to mind that have over 100 attorneys. Most are smaller boutique firms with <50 attorneys, 10 or so is most likely. Many with 50 or so attorneys are satellite offices of firms that have large offices in DC/NYC. The only true big Baltimore firms are DLA Piper Rudnick, Venable, and i guess Miles & Stockbridge as well.
In DC, the food chain is GT>GWU>GMU>American>MD/Catholic>Howard>UDC....and on. Not to mention all the other top 14 schools that flood the area with grads. I know in my firm, there were a looot of GW, GMU, and University of Texas summer associates this year. The market is very competitive.
I dont know much about the Ohio/Cleavland legal market, but i have a feeling CWR does well there.
That being said...i am a firm believer that unless you go to a T14 school, schools that rank from 25-100 or so...rankings mean less and placement/region/cost of attendance matters more.
Keep in mind it is near impossible to get in state at MD by just living here for a yr.
