Lud, I'm not ignoring you since you seem to be the oldest here you should understand. I'm not doing this for shit and grins. I have two disabilities and that is why I scored a 133. Who ever said that a raw score is 30, you can pick all c's, that's not bad figuring I only got to 51 questions. So lets figure this out, 30/51=58% which would give me around a 150 to a 155 if I had accommodated testing. And the reason I have five gold cards is because of my credit, I very rarely use credit cards. You can say what you want about Phoenix but I'm going to dedicate myself to the school. I owe it to them because they're the only one who is giving me a shot. I don't care of it is in AAMPLE. Don't worry come and see me in three years. I live in a small town in the North East where plenty of attorneys went to Western New England, Roger Williams, Hofstra, Vermont, Quinnipiac and Widner. As you can see not top law schools and they are all working and some of them even told me that I would have a job when I graduate from wherever. So please just leave the fuck me alone. Let me make my own mistakes. And Willy I'd love to go back into the industry but I retired over 10 years ago and like I said it's a completely different business now, can't compete with the discounters who give you $8.95 trade where I'm going to charge you maybe between $200 and $300. The retail business is dead. Now you have to be an insurance salesman with an investment background. In 20 years I never did an annuity. I did plenty of mutual funds and unit investment trusts but the meat of my business was municipal bonds. I don't have it in mean to sit down with a client to try to figure out their financial future. Lets trade, buy bonds for income and mutual funds for your future.
I got no problems with you going to Phoenix Law, since you can afford it. I was just curious why you weren't going back to trading, and now you've answered that.
You should be forewarned, though, that only about 50% pass AAMPLE and get into the law school, so keep that in mind when you do the program. Good luck.
