Space program pays pretty well and they have a loan repayment program that helps cover 65,000 in debt! You still get paid while your in space plus you don't need to pay rent :lol:


That's good news indeed! I guess just don't blow up your shuttle if you have a loan cosigner on earth.

OP, if the above is true, you don't need to be so vexed. Here is what you need:

Study and take the LSAT in October.

Also, when you need a break listen to this:

It still begins with Johnny DragonballZ applying to law school because he has been a brain child all his life but can't figure out what to do. Johnny DragonballZ applies, gets accetped because of his grades and LSAT, but probably wouldn't get a job even if there wasn't a shortage. Johnny DragonballZ lacks the social acumen to be a successful lawyer anyways, hands in his pockets all the time, gets nervous talking to more than 2 people at once, and would hate working biglaw hours because it would interfere with his Warcraft time



I choose to blame Johnny DragonballZ, the schools, and Elle Woods.


+1 for Elle Woods.

Regardless of what you think of the LSAT, it has a significant role in determining people's futures' as lawyers. Most desirable employers disproportionately hire graduates of top schools who pretty much all have high LSAT scores. Apparently all these desirable employers aren't terribly concerned about whether the graduates of top schools are TLS basement dwellers. Also, always love to see the false dichotomy between intellectual intelligence and emotional/social intelligence...it may be shocking but a lot of people are actually smart and have social skills (although defining social skills as whether you go out at night makes me think you must be like a sophomore in college).

Anyway my guess is you have just started taking practice LSAT tests and all of a sudden your T14 aspirations are looking like pipe dreams. Solution: bash people with high LSAT scores....ahhhhhhh, projection.



I just fell in love a little bit..someone used projection correctly. Let't not leave off the oldies but goodies like narcissistic rage.

Unfortunately my PT average is only a 168. I think with 60 more days I can get that to my target of 173-175. Nice try though.

Because people will keep it going when certain comments strike a nerve.

Never once mentioned the time of day one must go out, just simply going out in general. I tend to believe if someone has 10,000+ posts on a forum, they might not get out that much. Nice job paying attention.

I don't know your GPA but 168 is barely compatible with T14...Cornell, I guess, maybe GT or Michigan. But I was mostly joking. You didn't answer my serious question about how you know that you are law school material, though.

That's his move. Just pick up on one tangential statement and ignore the legit criticism that he's an ass.

But nothing pisses me off more than seeing a pretentious little punk telling someone to simply not go somewhere, when they themselves don't belong in law school, and are only there because of their numbers. The post was never directed at any one individual, but as the old adage goes: if the shoe fits.....

Aren't you being a pretentious little punk telling a whole bunch of people they shouldn't be going somewhere? How are you not describing yourself here? And as a 0L at that.

I will say however, I'm glad someone else has taken the torch of posting unnecessarily-long screeds on here.

I have been deeply impressed with your abilities to hold a meaningful conversation with others on this board despite the unwarranted vitriol they have directed at you, and believe that this is a testament of your transcendent social acumen. As a token of my gratitude, I would like to provide you with a very special pamphlet about a very special law school where only the brightest and most sociable students go. The law school introduced in this pamphlet will allow you to utilize your social abilities and book smarts as you study alongside over 1,000 classmates in one of the nation's largest legal research facilities. One of the most unique aspects of this institution is the fact that they intentionally limit the number of graduates that can become full-time lawyers to 30% of their graduating class; this way, they ensure that only those who have superb networking skills - and not just anyone with an elite GPA / LSAT - make it out into the legal market. This type of educational system is exactly what the legal market needs right now, and I am sure that you will excel as a graduate of this prestigious institution. Schools like Harvard and Yale, which are centuries old, are using antiquated teaching methods, so it is only a matter of time before they become forgotten relics of the past as the innovative methodologies of 1972 revolutionize legal academia as we know it.


This post made my day. Thank you. :D
