So Law School has always been something I wanted to do, but haven't. I have 10 years working in recruiting, and I'm tired of it. Married, one kid, another on the way. This isn't going to be easy, but nothing worth doing ever is.
My goal is to be a solo practitioner or a member of a small firm in the small town I grew up in. I've lived in the big city 100 miles away from where I grew up my entire adult life, and I don't want to stay here and raise city kids. That being said, my goal for law school is to get through it with out taking out any loans. I'm open to any area in the country, as my wife is a Nurse and can work anywhere. My undergrad GPA was 3.69, I'm taking the LSAT in a couple of weeks, right now I got a 159 on the fist practice test I took, so I"m hoping to get that up to 165 before taking it, if I can't I'll probably postpone the LSAT till June. I think my best bet is to plan on starting law school in Fall 2010, but I'd love to be able to do it sooner, though it doesn't seem feasible.
Any suggestions on schools that will offer the most in scholarship money are appreciated, I'm not looking for top tier, just want to find the best situation to fit my specific needs. I doubt many of my future clients will care that much what school I went to when I'm doing their will, or DUI or Divorce case.
