you should study hard for the LSAT and retake.  Try taking a prep course and you should be able to get your score up into the 150's at least.  Then reapply.  Don't give up if that is what you really want.

there's plenty of lucrative careers beside being a lawyer. I can't say I'm choosing to become a lawyer because of the money.
THE LSN is here. PLZ post on my LSN profile.

I wish I had more fingers to cross.

I (partly) can.  But that's okay, because a lot of it looks very enjoyable to me.
Pish, J only wants to waste YOUR time.  Get wise.

There is a lot to think about before approaching any career. Just recently I've been interested in Real Estate because I work all day at a firm and its great but I go in and don't come out until its pitch black. 9-5 sounds like a dirty word to me. I've been working for over a year and I feel so inactive, just sitting on my butt all day, its really unhealthy.

Maybe I'm crazy but the idea of not being stuck in the office, doing everything from a home office, being outside all day, maybe its just a young person's idea of a nice job. When I'm old I'll be longing for more stability, or maybe not.

Then the fashion thing, I thought I might be able to become an Entertainment lawyer. That sounds really appealing. I'd get the best of both worlds there.

 Pretty much I'm going to retake the LSAT, apply to law school, go through law school and after that...well I guess try my hand at law.

I'm thinking about becoming a realtor while in Law School and if I love it more, I'll just do that after law school. So much to do..This is just a hypothetical plan.

Oh, and the reason I really think that law is a better career than any other is because I would have the ability to do something meaningful with my job and really change people's lives for the better.

Showing a house and selling one, you put people in homes, but I don't think its meaningful.

What kind of a firm are you working at as a paralegal? How many years of experience do you have?

Good Point.  Other sexist career paths for LawSchoolCutie could include:

Nurse
Teacher
Librarian
Homemaker
Florist (although all the best florists I know are gay men)
Daycare

I don't get what you guys are talking about, that's not even advice! LOL

I think you are making a false assumption that everyone who goes into girly careers like fashion are women, there are a lot of men in Real Estate and men in entertainment industry...Sigh..I need constructive advice please..

I mean one day I went from a person who really loved law and wanted to do this to someone who questioned the idea of working for 50 years and dedicating a lifetime to this field. I'm really surprised no one seriously doesn't question an alternate career.
