I am looking for advice as to which school to deposit my $ at. I have been given advice to re-take the LSAT to increase my score and ability to gain entrance into a T1 school, but at this time that is not an option for me. I have been out of undergrad for 3 years and work at a disability rights organization. I am fairly certain that I am interested in studying disability rights/special education law. I am planning to attend part time and work full time to offset some of the costs.If you absolutely MUST attend this year
John Marshall (Chicago)- Accepted, no scholarship California Western- Accepted, no scholarshp Whittier- Accepted, $10k scholarship, $3k (per year) scholarship through their Center for Children's Rights fellows program
This is my current acceptance situation:
Loyola Chicago- Waitlisted
Michigan State- Waitlisted
Waiting to hear from:
Loyola, Los Angeles
University of San Fransisco
, your best bets are the schools that have WL'd you or have not made decisions. I like Chicago-Kent and Loyola (CA)
more than the rest, but they are all decent options. Chicago-Kent is an amazing school...very underrated. If you want to work in Chicago it's not a bad option at all. Choose it over Loyola-Chicago, which is just a stone's throw away from Northwestern Law. If you go to Loyola-Chicago, you'll bump into NULaw students daily at the McDonald's (Chicago Avenue) near Michigan Avenue - right above the train station - and be reminded daily of the better schools you aren't attending. Then again, that could serve as motivation to kick ass during 1L.
Choose Wayne St. over Michigan St., Choose Southwestern over USF.
