Should I stay or should I go?

Postby Cactus » Tue May 18, 2010 4:15 pm

I just finished my junior year in undergrad and I plan to take the June 2011 LSAT. (I would be taking this year's June Test, but am taking 4.5 years to graduate so I could double major and have some time off before law school). Over the past year, and through this summer, I've been working as an undergraduate law clerk for the university system office of general counsel. I've been debating back and forth on whether or not to continue my job into the fall to get some short term cash, or if I should direct my time and energy into maintaining my gpa and studying for the June LSAT. I'm torn and wanted to see some opinions on the matter, and what you guys would do? I appreciate it.

I think you should probably stop listening to The Clash.

Good plan. I was leaning towards ending the job at the close of summer, and maybe firing up the LSAT prep sometime in the fall.

Good luck to the Nard Dog. You definitely want to improve your B average from Cornell, though.

You're right, I used to get wicked hammered. My nickname was puke. I would chug a fifth of socos, sneak into a frat party, polish off a few people's empties...some brewskies...some Jell-O shots, do some body shots off myself, pass out, wake up the next morning, puke, rally, more soco, head to class. Probably would have gotten expelled if I had let it affect my grades, but I aced all my courses. They called me Ace. It was totally awesome. Got straight B's. They called me Buzz.
