A lot of people laughed at me when I posted on here with a 144 LSAT. Well I took it again and improved it to a 150 and still some said I should pick a different career. Well finally, after all this waiting... I can say I am going to law school!! I got in to Southern Illinois today with a huge envelope! It may not be the best place in the world to study law, but it is a fine institution and I would be proud to be a part of their school if I do not get in anywhere else because they have showed faith in me! Go Salukies!!
What are your career goals, short term and long term?
I want to work for the government in some capacity and eventually open up my own firm. I am not sure what type of law I want to go into. If I somehow got an internship during the summer with a big agency I am interested in (such as DOJ or CIA) even though it is unlikely then I would make a long term career out of that; or at least try to. I have always wanted to be a lawyer because, besides sports, it is the only thing that has ever interested me in classes.
You should take a good look at the school's career placement statistics, and ask very critical questions. Make sure you will be able to do what you think you want to do when you leave school. Proceed with caution.
