I wish I would have known windows backgammon was so damned addicting before comming to law school. Although it made for a great way to get through property.

I am actually curious. I don't know anything about these DL schools. So I went to a couple of their websites (Concord, Taft & Abraham Lincoln popped up on Google first). I must admit that I was shocked to see that the tuition was so high. Concord is almost $9k per year ($36k for all 4yrs). Abraham Lincoln is $6,750. Taft was more reasonable at $5,400 per year. Still, at the low end, you are shelling out $21k for the four years.
I'm sure this is due to my own myopic view of schooling, but what exactly does that get you? You don't have a law library. You don't have law journals or a moot court team. You don't have clubs or interest groups or special guest speakers. Or do you? I assume you have classes of some sort? Are you able to ask questions or is it just a lecture? Do they use the Socratic method? Do you chat with the professor and other students? How does it work? I mean, why not just go out and buy a dozen casebooks, read them from cover to cover and take the Baby Bar and the Bar on your own? Does a J.D. after your name from one of these schools really carry enough weight to justify spending $20k on it?
I am in the top 10% in 2 of my classes including LRW.
I'm at a tier 2, and I can say at times its stressful, but I dont hate it. HOWEVER, I have begun to depise 90% of my classmates, but that's really just because I'm around them constantly and their voices/mannerisms have begun to get to me. haha.
I'd say just push on, everyone has a day like this regardless of what they do
show me on the doll where your uncle Jeb touched you
Here's some bull: my school's law review just changed the requirements for next year's write-on so that you're required to enter the writing competition even if you will grade on to the journal. They're just waiting to reelease the names of the grade-ons until the write-on competition is over and you've tried to write on. Since I am just on the edge of grading on, this is CRAP!
i wouldn't worry about what they are doing, they're the ones who will have gapping holes in their notes
since you "crashed under the pressure of the lsat" i would like to suggest the more truthful screen name of I_could_not_have_been_you.
