Law School Admissions / Re: The answers to all your questions

Extracirriculars don't matter for *&^%, and it makes no difference where you go or what you major in, unless you make disastrously bad decisions.  In that case, you probably weren't bright enough to go to a decent law school, anyway.

I am 17 and I don't think that it is pointless to have a little guidance in high school if you are serious about any profession, law or otherwise. This board, along with the other ones, have greatly helped me with my questions and concerns, and I want to thank everyone who is kind enough to post serious replies.

Well, that's probably because you have no idea what you're talking about.  Nothing anybody here could say would be relevant or helpful for another three years.

Well, even with a 3.6, you don't have a good chance at Cornell or any of the T14.  Also, the plural of addendum is addenda.

Probably not, but who cares about business school, anyway?

What's your GPA?

To clarify, I don't think there's anything wrong with the list.  If you apply early enough, you might get Fordham or GW.  I'm just wondering where you want to work, because that would help narrow your focus.

It's always fun to see TTT students get defensive about rankings.  Nevertheless, I just wanted to correct the obviously false claim that the ASU grad was working in NYC biglaw, which she clearly is not, in case anyone got the impression that NYC biglaw firms would a) pay an associate so little or b) pay different salaries to associates based on where they went to school.

You could definitely get into a T14 with those numbers.  The fact that you took the LSAT again makes it pretty clear that you don't want UCLA or UT, so just apply again next year.

Where do you want to work?  You won't get into GULC and GW, but you have a shot at American if you want to work in DC.  If you want NYC, you won't get into Fordham but you should be able to get Cardozo and Brooklyn.

Until you know what your numbers are, don't worry about specific schools.
