Spent 3 months studying for Feb 2013, PTd high 170s (about 25+ PTs) - 166
Now I'm graduating w/o a job and only 1/2 scholarships from T20s. Pretty meh for TLS. Sorry if this wasn't the success story you were looking for.
I truly am sorry that you didn't have the outcome you were/are looking for.
I feel really shitty using someone as a negative example, because its a shitty thing to do. But this goes to show that a year "wasted" doing a retake, especially if you know you can do better can result in either a) a higher ranked school, b) significantly less debt.
Better to waste a year between UG and law school, being reckless and carefree, then after LS worried about the shelf life of your JD.
Sorry again, Thriller, and I am sure you are sick of hearing this, but its not over yet. A friend of mine who is a graduating 3L just landed a job last week in house with a tech company. Its not market, but its a good outcome.
To clarify, graduating UG without a job. I'm a 0L. But I will take this advice to heart if I end up unemployed as a 3L
