I think you need to figure out what you want to do.

But you aren't getting a big scholarship from any T13 schools (which would be required if you wanted biglaw, etc.). You're not even guaranteed admission to those programs, even though you have a great LSAT. That GPA is going to make any admissions cycle at the T13 a crapshoot, and you're certainly not guaranteed funding.

I think you really need to do some research on your own. A lot of your ideas about how to get scholarships and what post-JD career tracks look like are seriously misguided.

Only ED, b/c NU offers 150K scholarship. Other programs offer scholarship as well, but NU is the best and most prestegous.

*sigh*

What are your career goals? What are your career goals? What are your career goals?


I want to get t JD/MBA. And move into Investment Banking. I can't get a MBA into a prestegous school cause I don't have enough work experiecnce.

Another troll, I fear.

Thanks a lot for that honest assessment. I don't know what to do. I am 26, going to be 27, and I work as a fucking lab technician. I want so bad to get out of this hole. My sister and brother are both doctors; i cannot get into medical school because of the GPA. I don't see a way out, I just want a ticket out. Obviously I have intelligence w/ the GMAT and LSAT and MCAT score s(GMAT was not offical) so I feel like I am just waisting away my youth and intlligence. fluid intelligence does not last long. I have no good work experience, and I lack confidence that I will be able to get a job w/ MBA alone. I just want a way out of this.


thanks a lot for your advice. I can work in BigLaw, I won't be agaisnt it.
You are right though, I'm going to research some more. Thank you for your advice.
