OP, just go work for a few years (I'm thinking like 5) and then revisit the law school idea. I think if you go any time soon it will be disastrous*

Who knows, maybe you'll hit a better opportunity. Besides, there's always next year.

Retake and apply next year man. Otherwise apply with the same stats and in sure you can find another fully acholarship somewhere. Good luck!

Yeah, study hard and retake. This could turn out to be the best mistake of your life.

I'm never gonna get to enjoy my 20's huh?

Better you not enjoy your 20s and enjoy your 30s, 40s, 50s, 60s, 70s, and so on, than enjoy your 20s and be wallowing in debt and misery the rest of your days.

Don't be dramatic. You can enjoy your life and study for the LSAT at the same time.

And even law school isn't the absolute hell it's made out to be, from what I've heard.

Might as well study hard for a retake. Nothing to lose but time and effort I suppose. :|



You're the type of person that loses in life because of their attitude, no?

Now do you see why it is so important not to take on a ton more debt if the law school you go to doesn't provide a chance at a job that can pay it off?

Take it easy on him. He's going to retake the LSAT and do better, and his life will be greatly improved because of it.

You invented whole new levels of prestige whoring dude, don't blame TLS. You've told numerous ppl here to abandon $$ for peer schools ranked barely higher for no other reason than rank.

Cry me a river. I took the LSAT when I was unemployed and living on a friend's couch. I survived on $2,000 over a period of 10 months. I had just lost a parent. Self-pity does not help.

Besides, I wouldn't even say TLS is a prestige whoring place. If it whores anything, it's jobs.

Big thing is, OP, that you have to accept this is what real life is like. Sometimes shit will go down that you have no control over, sometimes you'll make mistakes, and sometimes things just will not go your way. Take the lesson from each instance, and move forward.

In this case, stay positive, don't look at this as a lost opportunity, but potentially a shot at redemption. You could have a fantastic future ahead of you if you crush that LSAT. Don't let go of the opportunity at hand.
