Don't do this

Postby joshhoward » Wed Dec 26, 2012 1:53 pm

I applied for law school 2 cycles ago. Got in. Said screw spring semester, doesn't really matter what happens.

Ended up withdrawing, and 3 years later I'm back in the game. Just sent final transcripts to LSAC: GPA not looking as hot this time around.

TL;DR - try hard until the very end

Let's talk about your cycle instead. Why are you applying to HYS but not CCN or B or NU? Just curious.

which is why I was putting it out there for people to read so they can be careful and not make the same mistake that I did.

nosy people :lol:

I checked out all those schools in my first round 3 years ago and didn't like the feel plus this and that about them. If I spend 3 years of my life and $250,000, it better be a place that I really feel comfortable with.

Ignore these fools. People post about their farts on this website and your post isn't bragging.

Even supposing your motivation in posting this was 100% not bragging related, I still don't see the point. Your original post literally was three lines. Three-quarters of the first two was your personal history. The last was a TL;DR summary. Where's the substance? Unless you really did make a thread just to tell TLS-ers to make sure that they "try hard" and that they don't "[say to themselves] screw spring semester."

Agreed. I, for one, appreciate the advice. Just bc its simple advice doesn't mean its not important/worth reading.

Don't get all the hate. OP thanks for the input, I could see how it must have been easy to let senoritus take over when you already have the acceptance.
