Don't do it.  Seriously.

Your intuition is correct here.  It will simply be too hard to get out of that debt with the job that you'd get, if any.

Not trying to be a downer here, but trust me, it's the best advice.

Couldn't agree more.  I don't normally watch hockey, but I decided I wanted to flip it on and watch some of it in between the Pistons and Tigers games.  I was puzzled when I looked through the network channels, ESPN's, even TNT, and it was nowhere to be found.

Casual fans are not at all encouraged to take a greater interest in hockey.

I'm so antsy. You think next week? And how come there were no June admits from the WL last year?

Me too. I know I shouldn't be getting my hopes up, but I can't help it.

And I have no idea why there were no June admits last year on LSN. Either there were none or none of them were on LSN.

Hey, do you mind PM'ing me your LSAT and GPA?

I think the standard answer is go to the school that's in the area you want to live in after graduation.  Neither degree will be very portable.

On the other hand, even though the state of Michigan is TTT, Michigan State does seem to be moving up in the rankings lately.

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.

Wow, I guess you do have a unique case!

I'm not sure whether or not it would be beneficial to write a GPA addendum, but I wouldn't think it could hurt you.  Hopefully others will be able to better advise you.

Anyways, it's good to hear that things are looking up for you!

Ooo, ooo, me!

The problem is not that I haven't done any studying until now--it's that I've studied badly.  I took my first diagnostic during my sophomore year, and I have been doing practice tests  going through Kaplan books that were given to me, and going through parts of both bibles.  Unfortunately, I've just been sort of aimlessly going through the study books without a real plan.

Obviously, I regret not doing a better job of studying, and there's a pretty good chance that I will take again in the fall, but I would like to do some damage control on the logic games before the June test.  If I can even improve to the point where I have a "safety net" where I will get no fewer than 15 questions right on LG (but hopefully more), then I think I can achieve a pretty solid score, as I have done well pretty consistently on the other sections.

I don't know the different styles of games, so I basically just try to use what little knowledge I have of diagramming and make it work for every type of game.  Sometimes it works out okay, sometimes it fails miserably.

Northeastern <---my answer.
GW <---everyone else's answer.
