Long time no bump!
Thanks for your help all!
I'll definitely consider applying to the schools you mentioned, I would love to get into the University of Chicago but never really thought that would be a possibility (from what I've heard, it's for ultra-academics, a group I can't say I belong to). Also, yes, I suppose I am not giving my UG enough credit, as it definitely helped me to achieve my score. I'm just worried, though: for anyone who attends one of these 'T14' schools, are they tailored towards super-intelligent, no-fun-allowed students? I'm not saying I don't appreciate the joys of learning and classes, but I wouldn't want to pay an incredible sum of money to find I'm completely out of my depth.
I'm going to a T14 (well, in the fall...I'm a 0L now), and I have to say that I'm not a super-intelligent, no-fun-allowed type of girl Really, I had the same fears about law schools but when you go to Admitted Student events, you'll get a really good sense of the other law students. There were some schools that I didn't vibe with and others where I felt comfortable immediately. I visited a school with a hardcore academic reputation and while some people were more than intense, there were also plenty of people with whom I got along that let me know if I decided to go there, I'd have a niche somewhere.
I know you'll be in Europe, but is there any way you can take a trip back to visit some schools. Law school is such an investment -- not just financially, but emotionally too. You'll want to find a place where you can be happiest (note: I didn't say happy because some people think it's impossible to be truly happy in law school) while still having all the things you want from a school (perhaps job placement, clerkship placement potential, portability, etc).
You need to chillax lalaland.
Kid, relax. Just cause you're on an anonymous website doesn't invite you be rude. Nobody was talking to you. If you're annoyed, go elsewhere. Jeez, some people on this forum are such douchebags.
I don't think saying chill out was being rude and certainly doesn't warrant calling me a feminine hygiene product. Pot calling the kettle black, much?
I want to argue that it's not random, that it can't be because some people do consistently well, but I find that no matter how many issues you thought you spotted, and how well you analyzed them, the final grade is pretty much random.
thanks for the thanks. armed with this insight, I go on to 2L.
