Scary Decision Time [#permalink] New post 23 Oct 2011, 16:29
Hi all...I would really appreciate any advice/opinions/reassurance on my situation. Currently I'm in my second year of law school (I went to law school straight from undergrad) and I hate it. I have a 2.85 GPA. My summer internship made me miserable (though the other interns loved it). I'm applying to MS in Accounting programs at Wake Forest, UNC Chapel Hill, and UNC Charlotte. I'm seriously considering withdrawing from law school as soon this week however I'm having a difficult time because I'm afraid I won't get into an accounting program and then I'll be financially screwed. I have enough savings to live off of until I start an accounting program this summer or fall but after that I'm counting on financial aid so I need to be VERY confident that I'll be accepted into an accounting program before I withdraw from law school. What do you all think? Should I continue my misery and wasted tuition money at law school just in case?

My stats:
Undergrad major: finance and banking at Appalachian State
Undergrad GPA: 3.71
Law school GPA: 2.85
GMAT: 740
no work experience

If you're really unhappy you should drop out

Get out now! I just did this, (I'm a 1L though). Life truly is brighter. I have time to work out again, study for the GMAT, prepare admission essays, resume, applications, etc.

Unless you are HYS and maybe Columbia, NYU, Chicago, get out. You are wasting your money. I'm also worried about not getting into any programs and being stuck with nothing but the label of "law school dropout." You have a killer GPA and your GMAT score is like a 97th 98th percentile score...I don't think you'll have a problem. Life is about taking risks, right? RIGHT!??!? :dunnow

Good luck!
