Where should I go?
« on: March 05, 2011, 07:15:41 PM »
I decided two months ago to take the LSAT, just got my score back.

I got a 168, and my undergrad GPA was 3.41. I've been working at a non-profit humanitarian aid organization for the past 1 1/2 years.

Do I have a shot at getting into a good school? Should I abandon the idea of going to law school given the economy?

Thanks for any advice..

What do you mean by good law school?  Top 15?  Top 50? Top 100?

1 Do you have a tendency to get depressed?
2 Do you stress out easily?
3 Will you need to borrow money to fund your education?
4 Are you an idealistic and moralistic individual?
5 Do you value friends and family?
6 Do you intend to start your life anytime soon? (i.e. marriage, kids, etc.)

If you answered yes to any of those questions, law school isn't the place for you.

Consider reading this article: Should I Become a Lawyer

I am sure you could be admitted to a law school that meets your needs, if you want to be a lawyer.
