Yes youre likely to get into a higher ranked school and yes you may not have to pay sticker ,but youre still at great risk of either ending up at a lower ranked school or a higher ranked school with potentially vanishing scholarship money. Thus, most people that retake and reapply to maximize ranking and avoid huge debt, will likely be facing a dire predicament by the second or third year. Unfortunately, it would appear as if only those that can stomach huge debt or have alternate methods of funding their education(eg, trust fund, family assistance) will survive. This is very sad. Students that apply to law school with good intentions are getting screwed in this unscrupulous game. What are your thoughts. I for one am outraged.


I lived in pitt last year. thought about moving to LA. applied to Loyola LA and was waitlisted. found TLS, waited and reapplied, and now i'm going to USC on a 75,000$ scholarship. I'm a pretty happy TLS customer.

OP: Not sure what self-worth you derive from unimaginatively trolling a message board, but cool story bro.
