i will let u guys know as soon as it is out; I am still sad about this whole LSAT experience though, how can this be possibly the single determinant of my future? It feels like Social Darwinism to me. well, waiting for next year is not really an option. I had a long-stop in my college education (i.e. socio-economic barrier) and I feel like I am becoming too old for school. i wanted so bad to go to the top schools but I have done so much and I cannot wait one more year for them. at this point whoever takes me, I'll be happy to give them the best even if it's middle ranked regional school.
as the song goes, "are you gonna stay to the one who loves you or are you going back to the one you love?"
thanks for the advise everyone!
I don't really understand this sentiment, pervasive among many of my friends. That it's okay to just "suck it up" and go this year, regardless of what applying next year might bring. The common thread seems to be a belief that a positive attitude and work ethic is all that is required for a happy future in law.
It's not. Your choice of school is the most important decision you will make over the next 10-20 years. More importantly, how much you pay will also structure your future. The difference between 50k and 200k in debt is staggering and plays an enormous impact on the direction your life takes. I'm not sure what you're capable of, LSAT wise. But to dismiss the possibility of a HEFTY scholarship at a t14 school does not make sense, financial or otherwise.
Study, retake. Unless you are 40something, you're not too old for school.
