I dont agree with this. I think it's normal to have some thoughts of second guessing the next big step of your life. Just because im worried doesnt mean I'm not going to go.

I agree! A couple years of work experience will do nothing but improve your cycle, if you decide to revisit the law school idea.


I disagree as well. Maybe if I'd already submitted a seat deposit at school and I was still second guessing everything. But with me being about nine months away from actually attending law school, this is an optimal time to make sure that this is the right path for me.

I love every second of that! The reactions to this album are just as valuable as the album itself. Please enjoy this video by Kid Fury http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hn3eQqG6fok&feature=c4-overview&list=UUcbYWMlGF9Jj58Rp10X7Rag

Thank you for this! I Love Kid Fury! I was so sad that the latest episode of The Read podcast came out right before the album. I would have enjoyed hearing them creatively freak out for an hour

I dont agree with this. I think it's normal to have some thoughts of second guessing the next big step of your life. Just because im worried doesnt mean I'm not going to go.


It has nothing to do with "going to go", it has to do with going and being happy with your decision, anyone can go. There also is a difference between second guessing and having doubts or being nervous.

And okaygo was mentioning undergrad finals compared to the stress of law school. If you think undergrad finals are stressful or unappealing, than your in for a unpleasant surprise a year from now.

Second guessing is the very definition of having doubts, besides which both Mandy and Okaygo have a right to view this next step, should it be taken, however they so desire. Neither you nor I are in a position to diagnose and prescribe their individual reasons for self-doubt.

In other words, they don't owe anyone an explanation, yourself included.

Other than the experimental which I blacked out and guessed on like 10 questions (Thank god it was exp.) Thought LG was tough, only because it was sort of a curveball and had to skip one of the games, and ran out of time when I came back to it....

I really think LSAC loses out on money with the time it takes to get scores back. Not many people are going to rush and sit for the Feb test if they don't get the score they want due to time constraints. You would think, since they seem to be all about money, they would push to get Dec scores back sooner.

Please, fellow 0L, tell me more about the rigor of law school. I had absolutely no idea that law school will be more demanding than UG. Wow. I was actually under the impression it would be more like high school all over again.

But what I will say is that it does not appear that attending an HBCU will help you outperform your GPA and LSAT, which is really what matters to us in the context of admissions. I think we have to view this in the context of a positive soft. The whole experience is different from what some of us experience at what has been referred to as a PWI. I don't think its a stretch to think that some adcomms could view that experience as something that adds more diversity to the class beyond just being a minority. So I think it probably viewed as a positive soft on par with someone who has a science background or something like that.

Also perception trumps reality in everything related to academia. I would say definitely places Morehouse, Spelman, Howard come with some lay prestige, especially among blacks. It can be helpful down the road if you decide to go the firm route when there are black, the partners would probably love to match you up with them. Just my .02¢


I co-sign this entire post

also, what is a "pwi"?
