Are you applying to other schools? I would be careful with a school that barley employees 50% of its students after graduation

Do not go to this law school.

What is your GPA / LSAT?

All indications are that law school apps are going up, so I am not sure your chances will be good at this law school. But even if they were, it does not seem like a good choice.

No one can answer your question because you didn’t share your stats, softs, or anything else to give us an idea of whether or not you’re a strong candidate. Applying early tends to help a bit, but you clearly already know that so I don’t really know what you were looking for with this post.

Misspelling words isn't a very good reason to ignore the unsolicited advice.

I know that you have limited geographic flexibility, but that school is not a good financial decision. You have kids to worry about. Please reconsider.

The advice was objectively correct, and if you ignore it because of an error that probably resulted from typing on a phone, then you deserve whatever employment outcome comes from this school. For your future’s sake, you’re better off getting rejected again. Retake the LSAT.

They may seem curt, but the posters are really trying to help. Please don't go to a school that will saddle you with non-dischargeable debt and give you below a 50% chance of being a lawyer
