Re: Dropping Out and Reapplying

fwiw i met a HLS grad once socially and she emphatically regrets law school, said that HLS doesn't give a shit about its students, said that the jd-advantage unicorn job path is a lie bc those ppl would have gotten those jobs due to pre-LS connections anyway, and was pretty serious about leaving law...

Re: TLS/LSLer seeking lateral choice advice

I mean, you're anticipating problems but nothing bad's happened yet - and if things do start to fall apart, it won't be so precipitous that you won't be able to protect yourself by lateraling later. that's what i mean when i said that you don't have any substantive reasons. everything's just an if b...

Re: TLS/LSLer seeking lateral choice advice

i don't see any substantive, or direct reasons to move firms.

and i'm a little confused bc you said you've got classmates at your firm - just not in your practice group or floor of the building. any reason... not to hang out with them? at lunch or whatever?

i can think of no worse outcome for a 3.99 EE/CE from a public ivy to end up 300k in debt, doing patent pros.
400k in debt doing patent lit?
at least you got to live it up $100k more during law school and anything over 250k is funny money anyway so who cares.

Re: Chase Law School Part Time Evening Program

Do you want to practice in Cincinnati? These employment outcomes don't look great: https://www.lstreports.com/schools/nku/jobs/ There's an in-state discount (assuming you're in-state) but you're still looking at $140k-ish in debt at full price.

Re: Chase Law School Part Time Evening Program

170. Just keep practicing until you're at that level - then apply to law school.

But, (1) why do you want to go to law school, and (2) will you be able to go on the army's dime?

Re: 3.99 Engineering GPA, but 168 GRE to LSAT conversion--Chance Me

A 164 quant is in the 87th percentile of test-takers. A 162 verbal is in the 91st percentile. The respective LSAT scores at those percentiles are a 162 and 164 respectively - those would be the measures I'd look at for an estimate of how equivalent scores are calculated. You've got the quant skills ...

Re: Class of 2021: 2L 2 Furious
