The schools you are considering are pretty terrible.

Also, LOL at your assumption that you will be top-of-the-class. Everyone thinks this.

I am guessing you went to an elitist east coast LC where you were conditioned to hate men (Wesleyan? Smith?)

i want to practice law. period. regardless of sticker price. whittier offered me 10G for 1L and pending 1L grades 50-100% tuition for 2L... But their bar passage rate is fairly low. So they are my last choice. Please let me know if you have any advice on the schools i previously posted. thank you.

If you would like to practice so badly you should consider what schools give you the best oppurtunity to actually practice law. If you insist on going 160k in debt for meager oppurtunities to actually practice law, you could always skip the debt and act as a pro se litigant.

*Sigh* We tried.

Fine, pick California Western because it is in San Diego. At least you will live in a nice place while the loan money last.

The question is whether any of these institutions will give you a fighting chance at doing that. Absent the obvious 'retake', and since you don't care about paying sticker (which is truly ridiculous), go to the school in the least congested market.

But seriously, if you can't control your anxiety over the entrance exam to law school, how do you expect to control it on the much longer finals tests that determine your entire grade for the class, not to mention that you also have a couple hundred grand and your future on the line?

Since you don't want to listen to valid advice do whatever you want.

There are other message boards that are blindly supportive of terrible decisions.

PS- I want to get into politics. Specifically LGBT and women's issues.


Do you generally feel highly anxious during important exams? Nothing inherently wrong with that, some folks just aren't good at testing. But if text anxiety is a problem, shouldn't you reconsider a strategy that has you consistently performing at the top 5% of your class?

That aside, if you're intent on going to law school and working in politics then go with UDC, for the internships possibilities if nothing else. Or failing that, I echo the earlier post recommending that you explore MBA programs (which I think could provide a rewarding career working in LGBT and women's issues' even if not in ways you've previously considered).

Best of luck!

THANK YOU TR FAN!

I dont usually have test anxiety. I was just in a bad place at the time. And I want to start law school this fall so i cannot retake it a 3rd time. Any thoughts about transferring to a "better school" after 1L if i do in fact rock that first year?

It's generally harder to transfer into a school for 2L than it is to get into a school through the regular admissions process. I'm starting to think you may know this already and are posting on a forum alt for your own amusement.

You could retake in June and apply to Florida Coastal for Fall.. Apparently their Fall JD deadline isn't until July 15th. This option kills like 4 birds with 1 stone... retake, still go to a TTT, spend a lot of money, poor job prospects.. and so on

FYI Not all of us are going to Harvard.

To truly master kicking ass in courtroom you should consider Cooley. I've seen that exact attitude from Cooley students, you will fit right in.

Well, I doubt we will ever see you in court. Since most T4 grads will end up doing DUI defense or w/e other work they can find. Most TLS users will not be in your area of, "expertise".

I find posts like this funny. People do realize the name of the website they are visiting, correct?

This decision you are making will make it virtually impossible for a man to marry you. But you probably don't care, since you are a feminista fem-nazi
