hey lawschool...

how old are you exactly?  i was in the same boat as you way back when...questioning my desire to be a lawyer after 2 cruddy lsat scores: 152/154.

i took a few years off to work (graduated college in dec 02)...but eventually quit my law related endeavors (google/nonprofit/city of sf) and pursued something "fun."

after a year or two of partying it up (literally...opened up a restaurant/nightclub in sf with a few buddies), i realized it wasn't the route for me and decided to make a serious run at lawschool.

my advice...take some time off...pursue other things...and if you still feel like you "want to make a difference" via the law...then take a serious stab it.
it may come down to fordham v. hastings...

You should give up on law school.  Why?  Because law school is horrible, and being a lawyer can't be any better.

That said, for it to be your dream and then for you to convince yourself you really don't want it because of a low LSAT score... seems a bit absurd.

Don't listen to him, he's just sad because he goes to law school in the arctic tundra. ;)

Don't listen to her, she only rocked law school because she now lives in Arkansas and she's the only non-inbred person there.

Although I will admit, it definitely does not help.  I feel like USD students are probably much more positive about law school due simply to it being sunny, warm, and the school having a much greater aesthetic appeal.

This is a blasphemous falsehood.  At least I told the truth!   :D :P

Doubtful.  All people lie.

But okay, fine, you rocked it because you're awesome.  Better?  :P

Aww aren't you in a cute little mood?  :D

Not really.  Melzers and I have an odd relationship.

It's clearly just secret anti-GAK that none of the rest of us can understand.

After two and a half years of law school, I am desperate to go to med school or go back to get my PhD.
I have to believe in a world outside my own mind. I have to believe that my actions still have meaning, even if I can't remember them. I have to believe that when my eyes are closed, the world's still there. Do I believe the world's still there? Is it still out there?... Yeah.

Halfie and I don't flirt, we have an understanding.  One day I will show up at his place with earmuffs and drink him under the table, and then we'll probably make out.

med school is arguably worse than law school. intern year is definitely a whole lot worse than being a first year associate even at big-law firms  ;D
woo-hoo (accept): BC, GULC, Northwestern, Cornell, Vanderbilt ($), WUStL ($$), GW, BU ($)
d'oh (reject): Harvard, Stanford, Columbia, UChicago, NYU, Boalt
meh (defer/wl): Penn, Duke, UVa

*shudders*

Would you not shudder if I said we weren't going to make out?  It's just that we'll be drunk from our contest.
