Re: What are my chances? At 32 years old, Should I try to go to law-school. Please give me your honest feedback.

I don't think so - I applied at the beginning of January and got decent $$ from a few schools. November LSAT would be fine unless things have changed (in the six years since I applied haha). So I'd see how your practice test scores are doing right before November, and if you are consistently scorin...

Re: Employment Statistics by School - C/O 2019 rolling out + C/O 2012-2017 data

Great work Stranger. Since the majority of these schools are regional, it might be interesting to also group them by region/feeder markets to gauge pre-COVID market health. Knowing what the PNW or SE is doing (broadly) by approximation of how UW or UGA are doing might show some interesting trendlin...

Re: Employment Statistics by School - C/O 2019 rolling out + C/O 2012-2017 data

SLS takes a lead over YLS in the clerking numbers this year! Also LOL@ their defensive-sounding specificity w/ the JD-Advantage jobs... "THESE ARE THE COOL ONES, NOT THE LAME ONES GUYS!!!" In all seriousness, those are quite impressive JD-advantage gigs though! Harvard continues to lag Chicago on c...

Re: Employment Statistics by School - C/O 2019 rolling out + C/O 2012-2017 data

Northwestern gets such a raw deal in these statistics. This year is -4.7%, but the great outcomes are actually probably UP. That 10% JD/MBA class really skews things, because the Kellogg MBA leads to some very nice gigs. Last year only 8 students went into JD advantage roles. This year it was 21. I...

Re: Employment Statistics by School - C/O 2019 rolling out + C/O 2012-2017 data

Harvard continues to lag Chicago on clerkships huh? Tsk tsk... I suspect UChi is a little inflated by the quality of the Fed Soc pipeline + a broader pool of potential candidates who aren't averse to clerking in far-flung non-coastal places, but I think some of it too is just how strongly the schoo...

Re: What are my chances? At 32 years old, Should I try to go to law-school. Please give me your honest feedback.

I'm a 36 year old 2L. My GPA in undergrad was substantially worse than yours (2.52). But I was able to rock the LSAT, and that's often enough to bring out some scholarship offers. I'm at Washington & Lee on a little over a 2/3 scholarship. If you've got the ability to get above a 170, you should se...

Re: American (sticker), CUA ($$$)

Yeah, the appeal of either of those options is minimal. You said you flubbed the LSAT, and that's entirely possible, but you didn't say how many times you took it. If you didn't retake at least once, I'd say that's the best option, followed by Catholic (but as Slytherpuff hinted at, assuming it's no...
