What should I do?

Postby quigleyest » Sun Jan 15, 2017 11:59 am

Stats: 173/3.65 STEM t14 undergrad (mvpb)
Interests: fed gov (ftc, doj), nyc biglaw
Vague interest in antitrust (although not strong math/econ background), international trade law

I had a 173 from a 2015 LSAT. Didn't apply to any schools in the fall because I wasn't sure if I wanted to go to LS in 2017. I am now 24 after 5 year undergrad (double major) and one year of Americorps.

Now I feel very unchallenged at my mundane-ish job.
I submitted an app to CCN last week, but my transcript is still on its way to LSAC via snail mail as of last week.



Should I :

Throw a hail mary to HLS?
Attend in 2017 if i get CCN?
Apply Sept 1 2017?
See scholarship offers for this cycle, if any, and pose question to TLS then?
Hope for the best and just chill out for now?
Defer a CCN admission?
Take this opportunity to backpack the world for first half of 2018?


Your earnest advice would be much appreciated! Thank you

it's really hard to determine what you should do without some offers on the table. so: email admissions offices to get fee waivers, apply for free, and let's reevaluate in ~4 weeks. we can talk about deferring or applying again or enrolling when we know what we're working with.

+1 it is hard to evaluate what what should be done without seeing any offers. Also try seeing if you could at HYS

Also, you have pretty good numbers. It doesn't hurt to keep your options open. Send out all apps and see what happens. Decide what to do come summer.

Backpacking is never the wrong answer though.
