How many times have you taken the LSAT overall?
You have a fantastic GPA and if you could even raise your score to the mid 160s, you'd have so many better options than either of those schools.
I also don't think "marijuana law" is a realistic outcome for you, regardless of where you go to school.chargers21 wrote:Brazil_007 wrote:IExistedOnceBefore wrote:What is your gpa and lsat as well as career goals.
GPA 3.8, LSAT 155, Civil litigation, tax ,and marijuana law
2 of those are real, one is not. You have a GPA that will not keep you out of any school in the country, do yourself a favor and retake the LSAT. My first take was similar to yours, but I studied, took it again, and now have a 2/3 scholarship to a t13 that will give me a realistic shot at my goals and will actually provide me with a job that can pay off the loans I will take out. You owe it to yourself to give it another go. You can get full rides to better schools and into schools that are suvstantially better than your current options
Not to distract from the topic at hand, but my cousin's good friend went to a T2 in the Midwest and is either a solo or a partner in a very small firm that mainly does cases related to marijuana law. He makes a pretty solid living doing this. I'm not sure exactly what his daily work is like, and anecdotal evidence is anecdotal, etc etc. I just wanted to through that out there since it presumably is a "thing" to some degree
If you mean works in a small firm that does public defense of misdemeanor drug offenses, then I'm sure he does. But that isn't any different than any other public defender job. "Marijuana law" suggests something different than just defending minor criminals (feel free to expand on what he does if it's not misdemeanor criminal defense, but I can't imagine "marijuana law" being anything other than criminal defense).
Marijuana law is absolutely a thing in states that are legalizing weed/heavily regulate dispensaries. It's not like there are thousands of jobs in it because it's more niche than real estate but I'd consider it more real and practical than "entertainment law."
