I can't really take the LSAT again. I have a full-time job that leaves me mentally exhausted every night and the weekends are just spent recovering from work.

I realize how that sounds on TLS and how I probably look to all the top 14/170s out there, but I am currently stuck in an $8/hr job that I was looking forward to leaving in August and I'm already going to be be 31 when I graduate law school so I want to get the ball rolling. There is no worthwhile employment in my city for anyone with a B.A. in Interpersonal and Public Communication besides telemarketing gigs.

I'd like to have a shot at some kind of career before 40.

I am applying to OSU as well, LSN seems to indicate I have a good chance at acceptance this cycle though maybe with no $.

Even MORE reason to retake. A 5 point increase could equal a 40k scholarship.

Literally laughed out loud reading this thread, OP is a gem.

What really gets me is that he made it through undergrad without all of these now seemingly indispensable study aids

don't forget portable toilet, hand soap, and a small refrigerator so you will have no reason other than to shower to leave your "war room", other than to restock on supplies ( I.E. alcohol), take a shower( but im sure you can figure out a way to get around this and not smell), and to occasionally wash your hands with real soap and water.

if you can convert your window to a drive-through window, then you can order take out and not have to even leave the room at all....

Stocking up on 3 years of astronaut food at the beginning of 1L could eliminate this as well.

I am going to buy one of these since in law school I won't have as much time to work out. Basically, one of my goals is to stay in pretty good shape while in law school. By standing up for 5 hours a day while studying, I think this will do the trick. By staying in decent shape, I will have better luck being able to drop girl's panties, which will release law school stress. Pretty good idea all around, huh?


Dude just standing up? You're not going to burn enough calories. You need a "walking desk". --LinkRemoved--

My "war room" will also double as my gaming room. Yes. I will be playing video games. That'll be my stress reliever. That and sex.

It'll be bare bones though, a desk, my desktop, chair, monitor, couple posters, printer, some office supplies. Basic.




I'm calling Bullshit. It's either video games OR sex, I don't think they are compatible



I've done both...at the same time lol.

What every guy should strive to achieve IMO.

I do the vast majority of my studying at the law school library, but I keep a desk and chair in my room for the infrequent occasions when I decide to stay home. I can't fathom why anyone would need anything more (aside from caffeine and booze, of course).


What type of pen do you use? Does ink matter?

I currently use a lamy safari with noodlers bullet proof black ink but am thinking of switching to a Parker 51 with the Noodlers forest green?
Would either of these be sufficient?

Was this past the age of 17?



LOL. Def older than a lot of posters in here. Play Call of Duty enough around your girlfriend and if she is not a gamer, she will find a way to get your attention sooner or later.

If she starts to walk across the tv screen with her underwear on...be patient, there will be more to follow lol.
