Pre-Law in high school / Re: Some free advice

Actually, it's more efficient to just do better on the LSAT than stress about every last homework assignment in undergrad.  Every last question on the LSAT matters a lot more for admissions than the "every decimal" for GPAs. 

The main problem with law school GPAs isn't really the slackers.  It's the over-committed students who put extra-curriculars above academics because they don't want to disappoint the other people in their clubs, groups, sororities.  So don't stress about everything, get a 3.7-4.0, and when there's a conflict between extras and academics, choose academics.

I think his point was that he wanted to go to BigLaw, but couldn't and was suggesting that there's a good chance that you too will change your mind, want to go to BigLaw from a lower-tiered school and won't have the option available.  It's a fair criticism, but worthy of a "Don't go to law school!"

Go to the best law school you can and between similarly-situated law schools, minimize your debt.  Also, have a job before graduating and you won't have to worry as much for five months while you wait for bar results.

I think we can all agree that there are a lot of stupid people walking around with bachelor's degrees.  The testing pool may be a little better than the "average" American, but the "average American" should make us all sad.
