Dude. Just go to Howard. It's got better prospects than either of these schools.



Dont want the debt, dont want to live in DC....and you have nothing to be embarassed about. Many men of your age cant get up... #ShitHappens

Cost of living also taken care off? Books? Fees?

ETA: I don't even know why I'm doing this anymore. Boredom?

LST does put NCCU's total cost at only $85k for instate students, so OP would be looking at about $57k total price. $120k was a bit exaggerated. However, couple that with 3 years of lost productivity to get a 36% chance at getting some kind of legal employment, I wouldn't take it. But to each their own, I guess.

Thats to be expected living anywhere! Duh. I factored that in.. and would be less debt then the other options I have. If All my fucking options right now are 3-4T schools WTF would I go to one with 3-4x as much debt since this is about my money!?

You do still have two options that are much better than the two you're currently boxing yourself into:

1) Study and retake.

2) Don't go to law school

What point is this supposed to make? I don't care if you graduate from NCCU with no debt. Unless you have really good connections, it's a complete waste of time.

OP - I know you're interested in SIU, but how do you get in state tuition? Aren't you from Indiana? I hear they're opening a new law school in Indiana that's supposed to be stellar. Have you thought about that?

OP, since you seem kind of willing to engage in dialogue:

Let's assume that you could go to one of these schools for free or very cheaply. The odds are that you still won't have a job of any kind after you graduate. Why would you want to waste three years for a degree that doesn't benefit you, even if it's free?

If you have a parent in IL you may qualify. I just had to fill out some paperwork. It goes for a lot of schools people don't know about.. At NCCU has it where after your first yr you can qualify for instate T- thats a 15k difference... Things I researched

BC I believe in myself. I believe I can excel there, I may not come from the same opportunities as some, but I have had judges recognize my litigation skills.. effortlessly in my early 20's, before I even knew this would be a goal. There are plenty people that have gone to small schools that do Very very well. And I think I have the potential to do well enough. I have 0 debt.. A credit score of 850 and a cousin who already has a practice; if all else fails I know he will take me in.. I dont need members of this forum shitting on my goals bc its not a top school.
