As someone with the same exact numbers as you (and what looks like nearly identical submit dates) I feel your frustration with a slow to develop cycle. I, too, have gone back and forth on the idea of law school (I have applied in previous cycles and put down seat deposits only to change my mind at the last minute) and I hope you have not decided to withdraw too hastily because I have gone from one extreme to the other multiple times. As tk said above, this website gives a skewed view of prospects and the effects of debt from a graduate degree investment, so dont give up if it is something you truly want to do. Either way GL.
Also please let the schools know that they can admit me now since they don't have to decide between the two of us. Tyia
Thanks for the advice. I don't think it was hasty action. In fact, the night I made up my mind for good I made sure NOT to withdraw on that day. The "slow cycle" factor, while annoying, I can assure you did not play a role in my decision. In fact, it was another thing dragging me back to the "time and energy invested" factor, so if anything it made me hold on longer. I hope that your cycle is going well! I was VERY happy with getting multiple T14 acceptances, and I feel no less lucky or blessed to have gotten them in retrospect.
As to what tk said above, I absolutely agree. This is first and foremost a personal choice, and your mileage may vary depending on your circumstances and goals. TLS does definitely skews viewpoints, statistics, etc. But while you do take everything I've said with a HUGE grain of salt, please do think long and hard about whether you want to be a lawyer, how feasible it is to get from here to where you want to be, taking on possibly ridiculous debt or trading it for a school with weaker job prospects, etc. Maybe it's not exactly as bad as I think it is, but that's something I wasn't willing to dive into to find out. It's much better to have thought about all this seriously before, rather than after, law school. Good luck to everyone!
