Hmm. I have some questions.1. I never heard of a law school making students finish in 2.5 years. why would they do that when they make more money charging people for 3 yrs? I have never actually looked into this so I am little curious.2. I know you can specialize in areas but I find it odd you were able to arbitrarially pick the IP class with no experience. Without a technical background, you can't take the patent bar anyway.
3. Everyone is physically and mentally exhausted by the end of 1L so trying to pass that by an admissions board will make it sound like you don't have what it takes.
Just wondering -- why go back now that you've earned or will soon earn an MBA? Is there a goal in mind that would make doing both back-to-back -- and not simultaneously -- make any sense? Why put yourself that much further into debt when you could compete for a good job now, and one likely at a higher starting salary than you'd receive out of law school. I hope you aren't doing it as a way of absolving yourself for past sins and finding redemption. Because, speaking from experience gained from my immediate non-law school past life, that's unhealthy. Good luck, though, as you proceed. Go take a proctored practice LSAT at Kaplan. It's free, and it'll give you a great benchmark. And no, I don't work for Kaplan ... :-)
