Looking for some advice to see if it's worth the plunge. Any advice would be helpful.
Because of not giving a *&^% the first few years of Undergrad, I ended up with a 2.61 UGPA (from a pretty small liberal arts university as a History major) and my LSAT score was just plain mediocre (150s). I applied to a bunch of law schools but due to my pretty awful GPA and very average LSAT score, I have a choice: I can go to either Appalachian School of Law or Florida Coastal School of Law. Now, the thing is, my dad put aside over $200k for my education before he passed away, so I will be pretty much debt free if I go to law school, wherever or if I go.
But is it worth it? I have heard some awful things about FCSL and I know Appalachian is down there, too. So, should I go get a law degree, even if it is in a bad place, if I"ll be debt free? If I do go, should I go in thinking of transferring? What are the chances of going from T4 to a good T1 school (or T14 even). I've heard that you shouldn't go into law school expecting to transfer out. I've been reading that it's crazy difficult (have to be top %5 or better coming from a T4) to get to a T1 school but I would be willing to put in the time and effort.
Any advice would be great, thanks.
