Some people don't have that option, and while some of you may be able to devote endless time to study for the test, others have full-time jobs, kids, no help from parents, and barely anytime to devote to retaking. So what would be the point...
So when someone asks their chances, why not legit tell them what their chances are while also saying maybe they should retake. Everyone won't be in a T-14... T-20... even T-50s, and TLS is a very small community compared to scope of people who actually apply for Law School.
Can I ask how that person would then have the time to devote to law school?
I get where you're coming from, but 9/10 times this site is doing a good service by telling someone to "retake". In the OP situation, it is the best advice we can give. I went back to stocking groceries after college, because I decided it would be in my best interest to retake. I understand bills have to be paid, but the kid needs to "retake".
I don't think I said anywhere in my reply that this site wasn't doing a good service by telling someone to retake, but it's not always as simple as ... oh retake duhhh. And while the OP might not be doing his/herself justice by not retaking, I don't think that's for me to decide, as there is success outside of T-14 schools. However, it doesn't matter as the OP has already decided to retake.
