Not a troll, just desperate for advice because I am sadly lacking in inspiration. By the way, I don't meet my own qualifications, so I admit they are arbitrary. Ignore them.


If you're "desperate for advice", then listen to the advice you've been given.



Absolutely! Gotta go to law school though. I can't go back to working as a paralegal. I hated it. Even if I have to drop out after 1L year, I'll still have learned a lot. Most importantly, I'll have learned whether law school is for me or not.

This is all real, no BS, no trolling. Sorry if I offended anyone with my snarky comments. Anyone like movies? I do.

Not yet. Taking the LSAT in June. I'm not scoring well on PTs, though.

Get the score first, you have a nice gpa if it translates well to the LSDAS scale - the PS won't matter if you don't have the numbers first.

It's like you're reading from a book of TLS cliches. Be better at this, it's funnier that way.

edit: since I know you're going to say you're not a troll I will say this, if you're not - TCR is to seriously not go to LS. Or just don't go for a long time.

I'm not going to be spending much time on the PS. I know it doesn't matter nearly as much as the LSAT. But it is required for me to complete my application, as I'm sure you know. So I just need to throw one together and get back to PTing for the LSAT.

Holy fuck this is a bad idea.

Why are you stuck in this binary? Are you literally shackled to the desk where you work, with only law school deans holding the key? Is someone holding a gun to your head, threatening to shoot you if you apply for one of the myriad other jobs available to you?

If you don't like your job and you don't want to go to law school, then find something else to do. You don't have to go to law school, and you absolutely shouldn't if you don't think you want to be a lawyer (which is what you indicated in your first post). Jesus.

It should definitely only be -

3.95+
HYS only

I heard those kids are the only ones who are truly capable of editing a PS

I don't understand why you need to do this now When you can keep practicing the lsat, take the test in June, get the score in July, not spend much time in July writing it and apply in august/September.

Now that that is behind us...

I don't really want to go to law school, but I don't know what else to do. How do I pick a PS topic and sound enthusiastic?

Also, please let me know if you want to tear apart my PS. I'd appreciate it.

No one can manufacture interest/enthusiasm for you. Also you don't get to pick and choose feedback based on stupid qualifications when people are volunteering their time to help you. Come back when have figured out a reason other than "I don't know what else to do" and try again.
