Want to retake LSAT and wait a year, but...
« on: May 13, 2005, 10:30:09 PM »
My spouse is not having it.  At this point (32 yrs.)  I'm not sure another year is gonna make all that much difference.  I want to choose, but I'm not all that happy about my available choices.  Lookin at George Mason, no $, and Valp, Full + $$.  I would rather hold off and have a better set of choices, but I fear I'm using up my spouse-points so early in the game, that I'll be sleeping on the couch from day one of Law school. 
Should I just resign myself to being nontrad, and move on, or go for more?

Waiting patiently to hear your comments.

I think you are nuts to wait a year.  Really, it's probably going to be the same next year.  Another choice between a full ride, or no money at a better school.  It's the never ending song and dance, year in and year out.

GMU is a very good school, and you should consider yourself lucky to be admitted there.  Valpo is also a good school, not in the same league as GMU, but they are giving you a free legal education.  At my age, 35, I'd probably take the freebie.
