Black Law Students / Re: Historically Black or just law school...what should I do?.....what did YOU do?« on: July 25, 2007, 04:22:59 PM »
Thanks for the responses.
What's wrong with planning ahead? I don't want it to be 2009 and I'm about to be a senior and I'm just now looking into law schools and the LSAT. That does fly with me. I have a cousin who wants to go to law school and he will be a senior this year and he hasn't even took a practice LSAT.
When I was a junior in high school my parents and I went around touring colleges...they all thought it was funny when I stayed in the dorms at just 16. But ny senior year in high school I didn't have to worry about a thing, I had already taken the ACT and SAT and applied and toured the schools I wanted so I ONLY applied to the ones I liked.
I had friends in April who were still unsure of what college they were going to...I was already designed my room theme.
I've invested too much in my future to quit now, there is NO way I'm dropping out saying "it's too hard" life is hard and expensive...I need this and I WANT it
Nothing is wrong with planning ahead....
However, IMO your primary focus at this point (having completed your freshman year in college) *should* prolly be getting and maintaining a high gpa. That was my only point and I believe what TruOne was getting at. You will of course have a secondary or third focus. .....my UG GPA was not horrible (3.5) but I know I could have done better...I'm sure I/we dont have to tell you that LSAT/GPA are a significant factors in the LS admissions process...
