Incoming 1Ls / Re: Pleasure Reading and Pre-1L Book Suggestions

Looks like I'm good on 0L reading. How about some good fiction not related to the law?

Incoming 1Ls / Pleasure Reading and Pre-1L Book Suggestions

I've run out of TV shows to Netflix, and need some books to kill 3 months before I start school. I'm open to any fiction genre for pleasure reading, but something that helped with your transition to law school would be great too. Basically if you liked it enough to consider replying, I would be interested in hearing about it.

I got into the University of Minnesota with some $. Problem solved! I'll just hold my status at a couple CA schools I'm wait listed at, until July at least.

Any more input? I have to make a non-refundable deposit by the end of the week..

I'd say go to Brooklyn unless the scholarship requirements are anything crazy.  You're looking at a full ride to a good school.

I don't think you should take another year off.  If you had a whole year off already and already applied late, what makes you think you'll be any more motivated the next time around?

So yeah, go to BLS or don't go to law school (if you're not passionate about it), IMO.

I’m definitely more motivated now. If I can half-ass my applications and get in I figure if I gave them the amount of attention they deserve I would get into the schools I wanted.

Are you sure you even want to go to law school?  If this would be your second time postponing a year maybe you aren't too psyched about going at all.  Is there a dream school(s) that you would like to attend if you had the chance?  Where do you want to practice?  BLS on a full schol. is great, unless you will regret it and think "what if" all year.

If I have any doubts about going it's because I sold myself short during the application process and have been thinking "what if". I don't want to commit the rest of my life to a place I'm not 100% about, if there’s a chance I can go to a better school, while alleviating a large amount of debt. Shouldn't I reapply properly? And I meant that I took a year off between undergrad and law school to apply, would ideally stay in California, for school and to practice.

--$40k to Brooklyn Law School (full tuition)
--Small grant at University of Connecticut
--T1 wait lists I don't see panning out
--I applied very late in the cycle, the week prior to application deadlines

I didn't take this cycle very seriously. I feel that I could have gotten into my top choices, possibly with $, if I had done so. I'm happy with my score, but it was below what I was testing at. My essays were thrown together at the last minute, but were received well enough to earn me acceptances at the T2's I applied to, as well as WL's to all my T1's. The idea of debt is causing a lot of serious anxiety for me. Coupled with the fact that I'm not very excited about either one of these schools, I'm considering reapplying next cycle. This would probaly get me disowned from my family since I've already taken a year off. Am I crazy to take another year off and do this again? I would plan on having my essays done well in advance of the date schools begin accepting applications, and possibly retaking the LSAT. Should I just suck it up and go? I could really use some outside perspective and suggestions, thanks.
