I have a few questions"I've spent approximately 21k already between the conditional admission program I completed this summer (top of the class of 96 people, btw)"1) Isn't the logic and reason behind the conditional program is to predict law school success.....don't they make it very similiar to an actual law school class and test it the way they do on a real law school class? If so, it is very impressive that you finsihed at the top of the class of 96 people. How come you did so well on the conditional program and did so "poorly" on the real thing?2) Your GPA is 1.71. That's a very low grade in college, but maybe not in law school. Some schools (especialy Tier 4) have a very low curve such as a C. If that's the case and you make a B- (2.67)average next semester, you can be above average in yoru class. What is your law school's curve? What does this GPA place you in terms of class rank? 3) This might be a harsh question? How come you made so much effort go get into law school (especially through the conditional program and doing so well on it) and not apply yourself when it comes to the real thing? Do you think this (the answer to the above question) will prevent you from doing well this semester?
By the way, WHO assign the reputation score? How come mine is a NEGATIVE 2??? THE Lousy comment above.
I'm doing alot of soul searching. It's not just law school, but the environment I'm in. A bit of a shock I guess. Even if I stay sober, if my heart isn't in it, it isn't in it. I have my reading done for the next week, but I might be gone by then. I wonder if alcoholism is a valid excuse or would serve as an extenuating circumstance? Probably not.
Call your school - anonymously if you're uncomfortable - and ask some "what if" questions. The good news is that you're not THE LAST person in your class. Even that person can finish if he/she has a better semester this time around. Good luck.EDIT: yes, Racheles05 above makes the best point. Your health comes first.
