Is there a law school in the US that will take me? Having trouble finding low end law schools. Thanks for the help!and
joemoviebuff, would you mind elaborating a bit? are you insinuating that the quality of education would not be worth the investment? or that it would be tougher to get hired and find a job once out of school? or both?
for what it's worth, i never studied or practiced for the lsat. are you currently attending law school? i suppose i'm just trying to figure out if law school is something i actually want to do. i have no doubt i would succeed in law school if i put in the effort...something i obviously did not do in undergrad is there any way to make up a poor GPA, say with graduate school or maybe an associate's degree? or am i just SOL?
thanks for all and any input!Ugh. For the record, Hardknocks and I are NOT writing for this guy. He is basically suicidal and retarded. It isn't because his GPA or LSAT are low. The other 0Ls chimed in with advice:
Bypassing the question of whether you should go to these, here are some good suggestions:
John Marshall Law school in both Atlanta and Chicago, Thomas Cooley Law school in Michigan ( four locations), Ohio Northern Law School , Western New England Law School, Suffolk Law School, Florida Coastal Law School, Barry and Nova Law School, University of Baltimore might take you, Ava Maria Law school, and University of Dayton among many others.
As for whether you should go to these, some of them are actually quite good and well- respected in their areas. A lot depends on your goals. If your main goal is big law, it will be tough to get a job attending any of these schools unless you are in the top 5% of the school and preferably in the top 5-10 people. If you have lower aspirations, any of these can do the job. If you just want a legal background but don't want to practice law per se, any of these will do the trick.The only appropriate answer for this monkeybrain is not to go. You're asking for it, buddy. By "it," I mean a lifetime of anguish, heartache and debt. Also, for the record, there is a law school for everyone. But those law schools that are for you should be shut down and boarded up. They shouldn't be part of your lifetime plan. I would be wary if they accepted someone with your credentials.
Why do I bother reading Top Law Schools? It really makes me sick to my stomach.
