Took Oct LSAT ... just waiting for score

Still writing PS because too many people said not to talk about why I want to study law.

Will come up with new school list when I get my score.

-----------------------
Don't know if I will retake or not. Kind of very discouraged right now. Was testing in the high 160's. A lot of people are telling me it is not worth going into that much debt for a low ranked school...kind of has me down. I want to make a living and pay back my loans. Really was hoping to practice public interest law. Maybe it's just my hopes and they are right that I shouldn't try again.

The testing room was very noisy....the time watcher sat there reading a book and munching on chips the whole time.

-------------------------------
Decided to retake but not sure if I should send in my apps yet or wait.

--------------------------------------
11-13 Accepted by Cooley on the condition of only taking 9 credit hours per semester the first year.

Should be happy but I have heard horrible things about Cooley. Not sure if I should accept and go there and stretch out law school to 4 years or just retake the lsat.

Thanks for the kind words on my profile! Maybe, if we go to the same school, we can hang a shingle together! :)

Well???????

I know exactly how you feel about your LSAT. I took it 3 times, 140, then a 141, then a 148. I took prep courses and all. This is my 3rd time applying to law school too. So with all that being said I completely understand how you feel. I kept every single one of my rejection letters as motivation to keep moving because I know that law school period is what I want even if its not a tier 1 school. Everything happens for a reason and my passion will show through among n e thing else and yours will too. So don't let your score get you down or not going to a tier 1 law school. Regardless, if you go to law school or not....we r all going to spend the rest of our lives in debt unforunately. Might as well live it up and earn some degrees along the way. But you still have time to apply for the Dec LSAT and possibly take a prep course, they really do help. Hope I helped. Good Luck!
