To advise anyone about any subject, the person requesting advice needs to provide background information. Providing too little background information does not help you because anyone advising you cannot read your mind and does not have enough information about the subject. Then why do we constantly see these types of posts:

Poster: I work at a ID mill and want to make a move. I interviewed with a Work Comp firm. Should I take the job?

JDU: Why do you want to make a move? What does the new firm offer that is an upgrade over the original firm?

Poster: The new firm has better hours.

JDU: Is the pay the same? Better? Are you in a low COL area where you can afford to take a paycut? Are student loans an issue? Does the new firm have better upward mobility? Are the people at the new firm more reasonable to deal with? Does it cut your commute time?

Poster: I really don't want to be a lawyer anyway.

When asking for advice, provide enough background information so others can answer you intelligently. In turn, you can make an informed decision. People on this blog may be able to show you different angles of your situation that you were previously unaware of.

Top Law Schools advises everyone to wait out this cycle and retake the LSAT. I think that advice works for everything.
