Fuck her. If she loved you she'd be supportive of your dreams. Tell her to grow up


She's a good women, been with me for 5 years now, but has reached her breaking point. I can't focus on relationship when I'm bogged down by work and lsat.

I try but I'm not mentally there.


She sounds high maintenance to me. Study and tell her to go pound sand if she can't "take" it. Would you do it for an extra $100k a year?

Then again, if you have a good job and you like what you do you might not even want to go to law school. Law isn't exactly a booming industry right now.

If you'd be happy dying alone with an awesome career than dump her and let her find a decent guy.


Choose, dump her or propose. Imagine your life both ways and then figure it out. If you propose I bet she won't mind the studying, if she's gone she won't mind it either. Set up a schedule and focus, and then give her some time too. Why can't you do that? I have a kid and I managed to study and still keep her fed. The reason is that you don't really care about anything but yourself right now, at least that's how you're acting.


It's different. I work long hours. I'm at work for over 10 to 11 hrs each day. I then have to put in the hours to do whatever odd chores and find time to study.



ok well it's not like you guys have kids, if you want to take it again tell her you're going to take it again and that it's the last time. schedule a couple hours a week to just do whatever with her and don't back out, otherwise you're a douche

If he is interested in $$$, I doubt he'd get any there. I had a 164/3.6 and got nothing.

Is it even worth it for me to study and get the 170 and then ed to Northwestern or UVA, when I want to be a trial attorney and work at the DA's or JAG ?

That's what I'm debating. How important is prestige? I can't eat prestige and I can't pay my bills with prestige. I think about all of the people in the t-14 without jobs and think that might not be a smart idea.

This.

If she is at her "breaking point" with LSAT prep, there is no way she will be able to deal with the time demands and stress levels that law school/finals will put on you.

Or the time demands/stress levels associated with actually practicing law.

+1.

Try setting aside a few hours at the same time every week just for her. Plan a special date for her during that time, even if it's just cooking her dinner or watching a movie on the couch. Do NOT bring up the LSAT at all during this time. She doesn't necessarily want MORE time with you, but I bet you are constantly obsessing over the LSAT and talking about it with her even when you aren't studying. Just make her feel like she is just as important as the LSAT, and she shouldn't have a problem with you taking it another time.
