Choosing the Right Law School / Re: OMG where do i go, please help!
« on: May 07, 2007, 10:07:34 PM »
i totally agree with the BS curve.  however, i am going to school- im in it to win it.  The problems im having are more personal like, im miserable in charleston SC and i have a dead end job making peanuts, the job market is terrible and waiting a year just means prolonging my law practice, and my "real job" and "real money" if this makes sense. 

and yes i have more "control" now but does it really matter where i go?  from what i hear its "no, as long as its accredited and as long as you perform well"

yay or nay/

lol..wow...well, i went to the citadel, i did 5 years of coursework in 4- not the brightest idea, taking 20 plus hour semesters, plus on a top 25 division 1 wrestling team (helped pay for school) however i had no inkling of how important a GPA was. 

my lsat is a direct result of being out of the studious loop for almost 3 years.  i signed up for it and showed up, thats it.  i dont think i did too terribly considering the circumstance.  ive felt like just saying @#!* it, and i appreciate your honesty. 

honest answers are what i asked for, so ill take it into consideration.  but is st. thomas really that bad?

So basically, St. Thomas Florida is my "only secure" option.  I didn't do so hot on the LSAT- 151- but i didn't study for it either and i was 2.5 years out of college.

my GPA is a 2.5.  I applied in March/April to all my schools- 14 total and the only acceptances i have are from tier 4. 

so do i wait it out another year, clear some of my debt and study for the lsat and reasonably expect a high 150-low 160 and apply early or do i suck it up and go to st thomas?

any takers with sound advice is appreciated!

also- i live in charleston SC which is the seventh circle of hell and i want toget ou asap.
