IMO, NO! If you are taking the LSAT as a back up plan, you would be going in to law school too casually. Law school should not be viewed as a back-up plan, a fall back, or something casually pursued. Do your homework, law school is obscenely expensive and employment stats are not what the law schools say they are. It is a huge risk for someone with a passion for law and a dream of being a lawyer - it is insanity to casually go into law school as one would any other graduate program. There are people out there being ruined financially by taking out over $100,000 in loans and not being able to pay them back because they cannot get a job. The old myth is false - law school is generally not a ticket to a guaranteed high-paying job. If you do not love the law or have a burning desire to be a lawyer, then forget law school. Get a MBA if you must, some other masters degree, or a Ph.D., but stay away from law school.
