Hello,I am faced with a rather unique situation... I am at a cross-road and am quite lost as to what I should do... I finished college early, went for my MBA and then started law school at a 4th tier school. I am bright, however never put in much effort. Now, after having completed my 1st year, I am regretting being such a slacker in my underage years. I wish I could restart my whole education and actually achieve what I know I'm capable of instead of choosing the easy route. Considering the currect economy, the future is questionable at best... Thus, my dilemma... I had a decent gpa of 3.4 and an LSAT of about 150 without ever taking a prep course and only doing a few sample LSATs. People at my school got full rides with the same GPA and an LSAT of about 156 while I am paying 30K for tuition... I did not do great in my first year (mostly because I underestimated how much I should study, not because I have trouble getting the material) and the career prospects at graduation worry me. I would like to practice corporate/securities/international business law. So I am considering the following options:1) leave the current law school2) perhaps go do another MBA in finance at a top in state school (my original MBA is in operations management) - this would only take a year and this school is the best in the state, though I honestly prefer management to finance, but the career prospects are better with finance since money makes the world go round lol; this would also be beneficial if I end up doing securities law3) take an LSAT prep course and actually do practice exams so I would score around 160s4) then either apply to the top 2 state schools (which are in the 158-160 range) with tuition being only 10K a year5) re-apply to the lower tier schools and see if I would get a full rideThe main reasons why I went to this law school is because it was closest to home, I did not put in effort to score better and I was sure that my career prospects would be decent upon graduation. However, being more than 100K in debt no longer seems very attractive. I am young, so I do not mind wasting a year or two and re-doing things the way I should have done them in the first place. However, I would like to know what my chances are. Has anyone left law school, retaken the LSAT and been accepted to a better school? Or left l.s. and after retaking the LSAT been offered a scholarship the second time around? Thanks a lot! PMs will also be appreciated from people who have gone through this.
