I do not mean to be a buzz kill, but for those with a sub-150 LSAT score, I encourage you to try again. The legal market is a very tough market to break into from a law school in the 3 or 4th tiers. I would advise you to take the test again with a prep course from one of the companies and try to do much better. If you wish to pursue a legal career, do not attend a 3 or 4th tier school. You will forever be stigmatised by your degree and you will have about a 1% chance to practice anywhere other than the DAs office or in your own private practice. I am not trying to demean these schools, but for those of you who still have a chance, do not waist your time and money. If you are going to do this, do it right. Just some advice.
Unlike many of the LSD members, I have no plans of ever practicing law. I just want a JD! Is that crazy or what? Well still holding out for the other 15 schools that I applied to. Wish me luck!
Mark Geragos went to a law school that I've seen ridiculed on this board (Loyola CA) and George W. Bush was a C student. Love or hate either of these people, they are proof that academics matter very little. I also know a guy from Harvard law who's really dumb, for what it's worth.
I am a high school drop out, and proud of it. QuoteYou should be proud- that is quite an achievement! I am proud for you. Did you put this on your resume with your other accomplishments? When you go to job interviews do you say "I dropped out of high school, and I'm proud of it"?

Perhaps, but I get pushed to say such things. And yes anyone at Harvard is a geek, it's a requirement. I've been a high school teacher for 3 years and I've yet to see a cool kid apply there. But I have seen lots of rich nerds and the occasional math-obsessed outcast.
