I think that your case may call for a bit of unorthodox advice....Considering that you've already done the prep twice for the LSAT, perhaps you ought to look at some non-LSAT-specific aids, then reapproach the LSAT work with that as a groundwork.  Specifically, I am suggesting studying logic and rhetoric books.  Symbolic logic is probably not as important in this case, you need to focus more on the inductive and deductive reasoning sections.  Do you mind if I ask which of the sections you had the most and least trouble with, based on your scores?   That will be important as well...If you are having trouble with reading comprehension, you may want to check out the pathetically-titled "How To Read a Book" by Charles Van Doren (the guy who cheated the gameshow 21 - still a good read, though).  Anyway, hope that works for you!

General board for soon-to-be 1Ls / Re: Best law school tote?

For those out there who are proud of their gunnersmanship, a shotgun case can make an effective tool to transport large numbers of books AND inconvenience the rest of the class at the same time.

Law School Applications / Re: So I'm Considering Law School....

I've said it in a thread quite similar to this one, and I'll say it again - don't go to law school unless you would be happy practicing law.  It really doesn't make sense to go for a JD for any other reason, and sports jobs in law are notoriously tough to get, due to the level of competition.  Just based on your GPA, it would be rather difficult to land those positions...

Ah, 63, sorry 'bout that, I knew it was somewhere in the middle....Anyway, transfers are a long shot as less than 25 people transfer per school per year on average.  Generally speaking, it's a bad idea to count on a transfer when going to law school, as they rarely work out.  I stand by my earlier assertion - don't go to law school unless you're happy with ending up as a lawyer.

It's also important to note that Case is ranked around 40, I believe - they're far from fourth tier and VERY far from unaccredited.

If you're that determined, you have two options.  Either wait, study for and retake the LSAT or go for the MBA.

OP, as much as I hate to say it, you may want to reconsider your choice of career - there are a TON of people who want to be sports agents, and very few actual jobs in the field.  With your incoming numbers, you'd be fighting an uphill battle from the starting gun, where most of your competitors are already ahead of you.  It's not impossible to do what you're thinking of...But it is highly improbable.  I always say to not go to law school unless you have a desire to practice law, and that applies here as well.  Unless you would be content working as a lawyer, don't go to law school.

Well, I have an older Aspire, and I really like it....I am going to have to replace it soon, though, due to some issues with the case (one of the hinges is breaking off of it..probably more of my fault than the manufacturer's.

Fine.  I'm out of here...But I still think it's ridiculous to assert that my comments were racist.  This thread is a prime example of why race relations are no better than they are - a man can't even attempt to discuss something like this without being labelled as a racist.
