Need help fast

Postby jackson6 » Mon Jul 01, 2013 5:51 pm

I think I am dealing with some serious confirmation bias. I have three offers right now. 30k a year at Alabama, 24k a year at Emory, and 20k a year at Notre Dame. I am having serious trouble deciding where to go. Can someone please help me figure this out? I am also starting to think it would be better for me to just screw this year and study the LSAT for a year and see if I can get a better score since I only studied for a month while overlapping with finals week.

My goal is to end up in the top 10% and see if I can transfer to a t14. I am not really sure what to do and I only have until Monday to figure this out! Help!

Numbers? Where do you want to work? Biglaw? PI?

Don't go to any law school unless you want to graduate from that school. Retake for the T14.

Going to a school with the intent to transfer is a spectacularly bad idea. Retake and wait for sure.

Don't be in a rush--law school isn't going anywhere. You have a lot more power over your LSAT score than your law school grades, so focus on the former.

DO THIS. It will be infinitely easier for you to get into a t14 by retaking the LSAT than by transferring.

For someone needing help fast they definitely don't respond quickly

yeah going to a law school with the intention of transferring is a pretty terrible idea... stats? Bama at 30k a year though is in essence full tuition though.
