anyone go? i'm strongly considering it for next year. i can knock out most of the prereqs through the local community college without paying tuition between now and then, which will save me a ton of money, and allow me to progress faster.

Dude, me too. I was getting between 161-163, then all of a sudden I just got horrible at reading comp. I used to get pretty much everyone question right, now I'm getting like 5 wrong. And my games suck as well. Got a 157 on the last one. Hoping that test day doesn't go like my practice tests.

thought I wanted to do law school. Worked at a lawfirm for a few months a while back, started taking law specific classes and realized it was hell. At least it was in enough time to change my concentration to Urban Politics and Development.

I'm thinking about it. I worked for a judge in my county this summer and got to see a lot of different things in law and the court system and I really enjoyed it. We'll see what happens next year, I'm only a junior now so I really gotta consider it seriously.

Could you elaborate on that a little? I've been considering law school pretty seriously recently, but I don't have much (or any) specific experience in the field.

I'm only in my third year of school, but my schools "thing" is 6 month paid internships. I worked at this fairly large worldwide lawfirm for the first half of this year doing pretty basic stuff, really just getting my feet wet in the field of law. It certainly isn't for me. I was miserable.

Have you taken any classes pertaining to law? How did you feel about those.

I've taken a few classes relating to the field of law (like Media Law), but nothing that really delves into the daily nuts-and-bolts of being a lawyer. What did they have you doing?

People always say "don't do it" while they are in law school, because it sucks. But I have a feeling that once you graduate with a law degree and get hired over most anyone else, you won't have that attitude anymore.

What I did was pretty mundane stuff. Started out doing rudimentary records work, by the end of my tenure I was pretty much an unofficial paralegal. A good perk of the job was making great relationships with different lawyers. I couldn't really see myself working my ass off in law school, then working my ass off for the first few years after school (some newbies were working 18+ hour days). I was already not to sure of it after taking some nuts and bolts law classes. That's just me though.

I'm applying within the next month or so; just took the LSAT. Essentially just think of it this way--do you want a law degree? It opens doors, but it's a lot of time, money, and energy if you're just winging it.
