One of my favorite things on TLS is when someone tries to preemptively control the discussion by setting down rules. "Should I attend Cooley next year? If any of you are going to say no, don't post, because I only want people to say yes. Thanks."

In all seriousness, OP, you're very young. Your goals and interests may change a lot between now and when you would be applying to law school. There's a tremendous amount of change and (hopefully) maturing that goes on between high school -> college -> post college life. Maybe after all that you'll still want to go to law school. Maybe you'll go off to college and get interested in something else entirely. The important thing is go to a good undergraduate school and A) minimize debt B) intern a lot and B) major in something employable in case you decide you don't want to go to law school.

Does not compute.


What do you mean?


Sounds like grade inflation.


I live in a zoning area where everyone is Asian. Now you may be thinking that I'm stereotyping, but it's true that most Asians are smart. I just got my rank and with 2 B's from freshman year, and all Pre-AP classes and some from middle school, I am still #132. Plus there is an 11 way tie for 3rd.

Wtf is a pre-AP class? And that is the most ridiculous grade inflation I have ever heard of.

I'm so confused by this thread. This person doesn't even have an SAT score stated in the original post.

Doesn't change the fact that there's some massive grade inflation there. Look Marie, if you're that interested in your chances for undergrad and how to get into law school, send me a PM. I'll be happy to help you out. That said, this is not the right website for you. We deal with people who have graduated or about to graduate undergrad and know for a fact that law school is right for them. You'll also see we expect people to have a GPA and a real LSAT score before they ask about chances. You are about 6 years away from all of this. Just enjoy your time in high school and college and if you're still set on law school, the law will still be here. You won't receive anything but criticism in this forum, because it's frankly way too early for that. And that does come off as stereotyping and racist.


I'm quarter Vietnamese. I'm definitely not stereotyping against myself. Also, there is no grade inflation; it's actually hard to get an A in my school. Everyone who goes to my school would agree.

It can't be hard if most people get all As.
