Choosing a law school

Postby dovlet » Mon May 06, 2013 12:26 am

I was accepted at Touro, waitlisted at New York Law School, Pace and Hofstra. I want to go to Hofstra and Pace. Is it worth wait or go to Touro?

I read through your other posts and I feel like I HAVE to tell you that you're one of those people that definitely shouldn't go to Law School. How much money do you owe after your dismissal? You should concentrate on getting a job and paying that off...

They only way it would be worth it for you to attend LS is if you score 175+ on the LSAT which is highly unlikely given your situation.

Get a job. If you have a job stay in that job. If you want to work in law get a paralegal job.

You've been a TLS member since 2009 and you're really asking this?

Depends on whether you want to be a lawyer, or just want to avoid the real world for as long as possible (and fuck the costs)

If you're even considering Touro, then you need to read everything its most influential alum has ever written. He goes by the name of JD Painter, sometimes. Just google him and you'll find out whether it's a good idea to attend.

The other options are equally poor.

What has changed since you were expelled? Nobody is going to tell you Touro is a good decision granted the cost versus opportunities presented, but you're abnormally dedicated so no when is going to tell you differently. Those other two won't be a big difference, but you need to excel this time.

What does this even mean? You really shouldn't be going to law school.
