What Law Schools Worth Going to Are Still Accepting Apps?

Postby lsatim » Fri Jul 19, 2013 3:17 pm

I've applied to Alabama and Wash U Stl. Are there any other ones worth going to still open? I realize it's outrageously late but I'd honestly rather go for personal reasons. I'm aware of the retake and scholarship concerns/advantages.


Also, anyone know if on LSAC.org there is still an option to send out for Fall 2013 if that means it's still open?

Thanks

Don't tell anyone you're going to leave in a year. Tailor your resume and cover letter for the jobs you're applying for, don't emphasize your pre-law frat or whatever's throwing them off.

And this isn't a year off. This is the 24th year of your life, or whatever. Whether you spend that year selling used cars or in law school or in prison, you're spending a year of your life. It's not like someone's putting you in a medical coma and you're losing a year. You're living it if you have the courage to live life. Maybe you don't.

I took this past year off and it was just a disaster. I had to move a bunch of times, family issues, employment sucked because all of them said I should go to law school based upon my work history, interests etc and said they knew I was leaving so wouldn't hire. I really don't want to repeat that again. I know it's late as all hell but frankly I think one of those two would be worth going to. I'm also applying for other jobs but I can't imagine doing all this again if I don't get one of them.

My LSN gives me a better than average shot at both schools but obviously that's early in the cycle. I realize a couple of points means everything but so does a year of my life.

Again thanks for the link to the thread. I'll check it out.

No. They have summer start, which would only let OP start 3 months earlier than otherwise.
