I'd take one off. I'd say stay in your UG town but you seem pretty keen on moving on. Pick somewhere with a friend tho, it's a lot easier taking you lunch break with someone and bitching about how work sucks.

Yeah, will absolutely not be staying here. I'm gonna get a law-related internship or two for the summer / fall to figure out what the work is like, then bugger off and go travelling for a while. If I'm feeling iffy about it come fall, or anything less than absolutely sure law's what I want, I'll hold off applying and take another year off.

Work makes you want to appreciate going back to school imo. Literally everyone I know who has taken gap year (s) loves the days coming back to school. Honestly, that's why I'd suggest a year off, as well as the fact that it somewhat preps you for BL.

I've been having a lot of studying energy as of late, not sure why. Maybe it's seeing LSP or some number twins getting good money from Duke/UVA/Mich.

and I'm staying in a master bedroom in a condo with a couple other duke students for $650 a month + utilities (I get my own bathroom while the other two share). the guy I'm renting from is also leaving his bed and his flat screen which is dope.

Sounds weird but I think I'll like LS. My hesitation is way more law practice and the low W-L balance / how soul-destroying it might be.
also been on the other side of the continent from the fam for the past 4 years and been having a lot "everyone is getting old and having health problems etc and I'm not there" type fears lately.

That's good dude. Keep the study energy up. You will get $$$.

yep, that's a damn good deal. hopefully I can put the squeeze on my parents if it comes to that. also damn, if it were earlier that might have budged them up to 6 figures.

Sounds like a good cycle end dude! also if you want me to delete my troll Berk thing I can.

LOL I sent a PM while you posted this, thanks dude! and yeah even though it was a total underperformance I'm still happy with the outcome. still waiting on NYU but I doubt they give me similar money if I get in.

I completely agree. I imagine that if my first LSAT attempt isn't a high enough score, I won't bother retaking it or applying until I have significant WE and a masters. At that point I'd reevaluate what I want.

But if it is, still, do try to get that WE. Saying this because you are me a year ago.

^^^^^^^^^^^
Grinding a 9-5 (or in the case of biglaw, 10-10)for a while might not be able to tell you anything about what you want in life, but it will definitely help you see what you don't want in life, which may put you on a completely different career path than what you're planning now


Yup, I agree. I'm not in a rush to write the LSAT/apply for LS. There are certainly other avenues I wish to explore before ultimately making that decision. It's a big girl decision that needs to be informed by big girl experience after all. :D

I've had those fears as well, which is why I'm hesitant on this biglaw gig now and looking at little debt. PI seems to have more flexible hours and better Work life balance. Maybe work near your family now (go to a college town close by if possible the youth rubs off on you) that way you can still see them and whatnot.

I'd lol if you got Vanderbilt. Duke with zilch for debt is amazing, if I was in that spot I'd bite in a second without thinking twice.

I'm struggling to find info but if you look on glassdoor a bit you do see plenty of upper level PI attorney salaries that are low six-figures. Pales in comparison to BL but that's still a very decent living in my book, so not 40k forever. Goes without saying gov salaries (and academia (lol)) can also be very decent.

And yeah good idea. It'll be a year or so before I have to figure things out work-wise but definitely will be thinking about that.

I first tried to apply without a transcript or a personal statement or any LoRs, and that appeared to make it worse.
So I clicked a button that said "applying for Fall 2019".
