need to research more. i'm not really sure yet. I guess my answer would be subjective, esp to people here ; )

yea no joke that's the plan if this doesn't work out. but I'm almost sure I can make this work. my boss at a firm I was working at last year was late 30s not married and was still paying off his debt. so even having no kids / no wife and still paying debt off by almost 40 opened my eyes to that. he said try to borrow as little as possible. so that's my goal.
as for schools I was thinking U san diego (since it is close), nevada, arizona, hawaii, colorado. I must start looking up some more options. don't want to stray too far from CA.... would enjoy driving home every now and then. not a big fan of flying. which schools you looking at?
According to LSN, you might be able to get some money at UCLA/USC if you pull off a 165 (depending on what your gpa looks like). If you get 168+ though, it looks like some people have gotten 70-90K there + chance at some money at WUSTL, Georgetown, etc. I say aim for 170+ because I believe you can do it
ETA- yeah, there might be some stipulations though
USC or UCLA would be a dream! I might have to wait until next cycle if I was shooting for those lol
as for my GPA..... it's kind of crappy. 3.3 was my calculated LSAC GPA when I did it myself. I had a 3.4. had I known I wanted to do this from the beginning, I would have spent more time studying than having my head in the sand at the beach. hindsight 20/20. that said my LSAT will probably have to be much higher than the median at whatever school I decide to apply to.
on the bright side of things, I just ran 2 miles and thought I was going to croak. lesson learned, don't slack off on anything. including studying, or running in my case.
