Decision Time

Postby AlphaIncipiens » Wed Mar 30, 2011 4:11 pm

Still waiting to hear back from a few schools. Here's the deal. I had all but decided on Loyola-Chicago, but am quite weary of getting shoved into a doc review job after graduating. Ideally, I want to live in Chicago at this point in my life. I have a few other options though. I'm still not sold on law school completely, and "retake" is not a option for me, because I want to be doing something now. What would you do?

Thanks!

Since you aren't completely sold on law, take some time off, work, and try to figure out if you really want to do law. Then retake and go to Northwestern. :D

Chicago is a failing and competitive market with 2 much superior schools located in it, one superior located just a couple hours away, plus all the top 14 graduates that decide to come to Chicago. If you don't want doc review and you aren't "completely sold" on law school please find something else to do with your life. Just be happy you have other options! Just my two cents. Good luck making the decision!
