My best option(s)?

Postby LionelHutzJD » Thu Feb 07, 2013 1:11 pm

Ok so hopefulyl i will be attending law school in the fall and plan on borrowing big bucks. I was wondering what my best options are. If i fill out FAFSA im sure I wont be getting much at all. Should I go with a bank loan or a gradplus loan? Im trying to read up on it but im sure you guys can help me out quicker.

Before we answer that, which school(s) are currently on your list where taking out "big bucks" to attend will be necessary?

This dude has been trolling up and down the board with ghastly numbers. He has been given consistent and good advice but insists on pursuing it. It's not like he is going to get another kind of answer.

+1

He has been given good advice to retake. He has only attempted the LSAT once, to my knowledge, and doesn't have a good reason for why he can't take a year off.

If you're going to be lazy about the LSAT prep, what happens when you get into law school?

No one is trying to be a jerk here. I was in your position - got grilled by TLS, am glad I was, and pushed my LSAT over the 160 mark. Now I am sitting with full rides to schools I would have barely broken into.

Heck, I might even sit another year and retake again if I don't get the cycle I am looking for.

Please retake...

Gotcha. The truth hurts, eh OP?
