I am looking for another career, and would like to become a prosecutor, my GPA is 3.58 and my practice scores on the LSAT are in the high 150's low 160's and I just started practicing, several more months to go until I am comfortable with my score.
There is a part of me that does not want to commute any farther than I have to so Touro would be convenient for me. However, if I cannot accomplish my goals by going there then I may have to re-think the commute factor.
Again, thank you for your advice, and useful opinions.
Regardless of what anyone has said, thank you for your service. I'm of the belief that some "softs" actually do make a difference. In your life, I believe this to be true. Keep working hard and ROCK the LSAT! Good luck to you and thanks again!!!
There are some schools out there that are "toilets". At the same time, there are plenty of legit schools in the T3 range. Most people say T3 is not worth it because of the debt. They might not be in the same situation as you. Think about coming out of UG with 100K+ in student loans, then planning on throwing another 100K+ on top of that, and then only expecting to make 60K a year. Not a smart move for most people, especially when you consider the 3 years pay they miss out on. If you can get your LSAT up to the mid 160s and land a fat scholly (maybe full ride at some places), then go to a T3 and be happy with a new and hopefully exciting career change. It seems like you have thought this out, but so many kids coming straight out of UG think "I want to make a lot of money, Im gonna go to law school!" and dont consider what their employment prospects will most likely be from a T3/4. For most of these people, going to a T3 law school without a large scholarship is financial suicide.
