What I do not understand

Postby itachiuchiha » Mon Feb 18, 2013 11:20 am

For those who say "if I don't get a 165 + , I am not going to law school", or "if I do not get a scholarship, I am not going to law school"
What exactly do you want to get out of law school? And do you WANT to be a lawyer? My consensus is that if you really WANT to be a lawyer, and you took the LSAT 3x and got a 164 as your highest score, you could go to law school for free in some instances, just not in T14, but you could still be a lawyer. So if you are rejecting law school after scoring ABOVE the 90%tile with like a 164, I feel that you DO NOT want to be a lawyer. Your just cheap and don't want to spend the few thousands for law school, even though you could get a scholarship to a lot of schools with that 164.

Just my 2 cents
Your opinions?

I think most people want a job that would make the investment (both in terms of time and money) worth your while.

Ah yes, the "if you hustle, you'll be fine" branch of the "special snowflake" argument.

You're an idiot.

If you insist on saying words, at least put them in sentences that make sense.
