Just general things is it worth it? Was it difficult to find a job after passing the bar? And I've heard most of my professors say one of if not the mot important aspect is choosing a school you'll feel comfortable at, how true is this? What kind of LSAT score should I be looking at if I'm not rocking a 3.9 GPA? Thanks

law schools care more about LSAT score than GPA period. you could have a 4.0, but a 155 on your LSAT, and you're not gonna get near the interest if you had a 165 and a 3.0. Plus you always wanna score as high as possible so you get more $$.

one of my profs put it this way:

LSAT
LSAT
LSAT
GPA
Other stuff


As far as schools go, try to go somewhere that you're comfortable as well as gives you the most money. Find an equilibrium of $, comfort, and prestige.

And the job search isn't gonna be fun, I'll be frank. Actually, if you go to school in a smaller state like New Mexico or Iowa, it shouldn't be TOO bad, but big market cities are pretty hard to get into right now. Source: WSJ, New York Times, etc.

So how bad does a "withdraw" look on one's transcript if the class has absolutely no relation to one's major/degree program in any way shape or form.

from what i've head, one or two isn't going to mean much, especially if it has nothing to do with one's major.

more than that though and people will start questioning why

It depends on your major though. I'm a Computer Engineer. I have 2 W's and 3 D's on my transcript. I re-took 2 of the D's and replaced them in my GPA with B's. The 3rd I'm not re-taking because its a tough class I hated and has nothing to do with my major (Music Theory).

If you can explain what happened and show that you prevented messing up again I think you'll be alright. My first W, I had a rough schedule: Computer Science 3, Assembly Language (hard programming class), Multivariable Calc and Physics 2. It was either drop one and save the rest or get screwed on em all. I ended up with an A and 2 C's that fall.

Second W, I had Software Engineering (time consuming project), VHDL (time consuming labs), E&M Physics and Linear Algebra. I had a death in the family before my 1st physics exam and my teacher was a tool to me all spring so I withdrew because I couldn't afford a D on my transcript cause I wanted an internship over summer.

Last Fall, all of my classes were hard to understand and took forever to do labs and HWs. I should have withdrew from one but couldn't decide which. Ended up with 3 D's and a B and like I said, retook 2 classes and replaced the grades with B's.

And right now, I'm in serious consideration for a Software Internship with a 2.76 GPA. I'm not saying W's are good, but depending on your situation they're alright. I didn't mean to spew my life's story, but that's where I'm at, and I know I'll be ok in the long run. Sometimes you gotta take one on the chin and just make sure you don't let it happen again.

Well basically my "situation" which is pretty lame is I got all of my gen eds out of the way my freshman year and so due to needing some pre-requisites I couldn't just jump into more major classes. I had to take some random political science class (I was considering it as a minor so I figured why not) and well I don't really like it at all...it's one of these classes where the lecture doesn't matter and you just have to do the reading and pick out really minor things and memorize them. It isn't particularly hard but just doing all the uninteresting reading is a little too time consuming and I feel like I'll just disregard this class and end up making a not so great grade which would be annoying because of a class that I didn't need at all.

It's quite the adjustment, but I'm really starting to like college. People here are so much more down to earth than in Long Island (even though half the people here are from LI Laughing)

yeah, i found that people are just way more accepting/chill in college eventhough half the kids were probably the same kids i would've disliked in HS.

i never knew you were from LI, though. from suffolk, i guess?

For sure...even with the people you don't hang out with (and consciously make the decision not to hang out with Laughing), I'd really have to go out of my way to be a jerk (as would they) to not be on good terms with them.

Probably. Can't really explain why. Might just be that college as a whole is much more chill.
