if you arent dead set on being a lawyer, dont go to law school
its funny though, i usually get -0 or -1 on LG but RC definitely kills me with minus double digits. I am more of a math guy. Ive debated with other people on how I should just go for a masters in finance but for some reason, I feel like having a jd would be really useful, even if its worth 100k+. In my mind, credentials are more valuable than money, so maybe that is why I am trying to obtain a jd also. Who knows, I might like law so much that ill pursue being a lawyer instead of focusing everything on finance.
But does anyone know, if 1L grades go along with logic games? I would think LG would go along in real life scenarios because quick analytical thinking is necessary in situations where one may need to think fast and efficiently, while I think timed RC is useless because research or case studies do not necessarily have a time limit, whereas sharp analytical reasoning is more useful because it generates quick analytical rebuttals in countering arguments
All I know is that your scores won't get you in anywhere worth going to, so don't go.

JD is like one of the most worthless credentials you can have just for the sake of having it.

DON'T GO TO LAW SCHOOL. you sound like you need to do some more research on the value that a JD actually has. Fifty years ago, people used to go to law school for shits and giggles, not anymore.

you sound like you are someone that wants to get a law degree and use it in business. LAW IS NOT MOBILE. Only get a law degree if you want to practice law.
Why not do accounting? accounting is actually mobile! People actually hire accounting grads to do ibanking, consulting on top of accounting. Everyone with a pulse gets a job in accounting. Granted it s not 150k but it s a decent 50k starting salary.
Try a masters of accounting program.
