Sticker at VP?

Postby zags » Sat Apr 30, 2011 5:04 pm

Hi. I am looking for advice on whether it is in my best interests to pay sticker next year for one of V,P if it is my goal to get biglaw in Chicago with significant ties, or whether the barriers to the Chicago market make this too risky of a gamble right now. As my LSAT is below their medians right now (high GPA), I am curious as to whether it would be better to take a year off and retake with the hopes of getting in somewhere like UMich or UChicago. My practice tests were above median, but I didn't perform well on the test day. I am also a business major from a pretty good school, so in the year off I could probably land a somewhat decent paying job.

Wait, work, retake. Go to Northwestern with money or Chicago, if you get a better score.

ETC: Northwestern with money would *probably* be an option if Chicago were on the table.

OP can't count on money from NU just because you can get VP at sticker.

OK should retake.

Yeah, retaking sounds good here. Seems like there is solid potential for score increase.
