Someday, some poor soul will ask for advice here on TLS, saying that retake is not an option, and we'll laugh and laugh and laugh, until their kidnapped family actually does get murdered. :x

In all seriousness, as a 27-year-old, I agree with WokeUp. Even if it feels like time is running short, you want to make sure you make the right choice on this one-time $250,000 investment. You only get one shot at this!


(Spending more at NU for law school)

Touche :lol: Not wild about it, but in my mind, T14 at sticker is defensible, especially for an ultra-splitter whose upside is limited. OP, a reverse-splitter, has no such restrictions.

What?

Good so far.

but I just don't have that option.

I'm still not getting it.

but I just don't have that option.

What the hell do you mean you don't have the option? That's one of the dumbest things I've read on here. Of course you have the option. And if you do better (which you could with adequate studying) it would save you literally tens of thousands of dollars in debt, and you would go to a school where you actually had a decent chance at Biglaw. If you dismiss this option out of hand to go RIGHT NOW so you can have a super-chill three years, you're going to earn every miserable debt repayment until you're 40. Don't do that. Retake the test, it's your best option, no contest. It wouldn't take you five minutes on this site to find out why attending those schools at that cost is such a bad idea if you can do better.

Attending a school outside the T14 at over 200k COA is a bad decision.

Its an even worse decision for someone who has a 3.84.

I had a 3.0 and am attending law school for way less than half that. You can do better.

So are you considering retaking? Or do you mean it's a tough decision between WUSTL and USD?

Voted WUSTL cause I'm hoping for a sizable contingent of classmates who are there to "have a good time."

OP just do whatever the hell you want. Clearly you didn't come here for advice or you'd be retaking since it's the only smart option out of those presented.

Agreed, but just in case.

OP, you need to retake or you will be making the biggest mistake of your life. Your loan payments will be enough for a nice mortgage on a house, every single month, for years and years and years. You have slim chances of paying this debt without biglaw, which isn't much of an option from these schools. You will have difficulty qualifying for mortgages, any smart man or woman wouldn't marry into your debt. You are almost guaranteed to lose money doing this. I'm gonna be 26 when I start, and took 2 years off to retake twice. I am so glad I did. I have a 3.0 and would kill for your GPA. You are a 100 multiple choice questions from HYSCCN, but refuse to take it.

But have you used the USD offer to negotiate with Thomas Jefferson?

That's the best way I have heard that put.


Too bad there's no splitter analog. "You are a time travel machine and four years' worth of less awful Thursday night decisions away from HYSCCN."
