You have to assume you will end up at median whereever you go. Because what do you really have that says otherwise? You don't have a stellar GPA or LSAT score all things considered, so it's not like you knocked it out of the park in college or on the LSAT. Why would law school be any different? Not to mention studying and doing well on one test is a lot easier then doing so on 6+. Plus wherever you transfer to would be at sticker, which is no bueno for most schools.
I'm really not trying to be overly negative here, just saying that I don't think that plan is anywhere near as good as just retaking.
Right. Knowing it will almost definitely be sticker as 2l after a transfer is indeed part of the calculus towards retaking. If I fail to make the gain this will all be a waste of time, though. But I do hear what you're saying about banking on median. I really didn't push that hard in ug and did ok. With a considerable effort I tend to do stellar (not bragging, just sayin).
The question is really whether or not I will actually have the time and drive to beat my head with the LSAT for another ~4 months.
This is just ridiculous.
You know, lot of people decide not to retake out of laziness and arrogance. I'm starting to see a whole lot of both in your posts.
Interesting observation. Please do elaborate.
Also, there comes a point when threads tend to deviate from attaining posts that are constructive to drawing obnoxious posts that are more likely designed to satisfy the ego of the poster, by way of presenting a moral high ground or assuming intellectual superiority, than actually contributing something useful to the discussion.
I'm actually surprised it took 3 pages to get to this point and thanks to all of the helpful posters earlier ITT. I'd like to say I expected better of a mod, but that's not really the truth.
To be fair and despite your lack of grace in making such a statement, I can see how you'd get that. However, it is also reasonable that after having invested considerable time in the Lsat some folks are ready to move on and may actually be close to max. Moreover, while a gain is without question possible, investing 8 hours daily between now and Oct/Dec is not eactly feasible. Even then it is not a guarantee. Reapplying next cycle with similar numbers only to be faced with the same prospects, unless I decide then to not go, is unquestionably a worse position to be in.
