Have you taken the LSAT? What schools are you looking at? There is an over saturation of lawyers, you have to go to a top law school and do well there to make it worth it I would say

Haven’t taken the LSAT yet, but have scored around a 160 on practice tests. Am thinking of scoring a ~165 and getting tuition covered at a school in the tri-state area.

I make $93k now with 3 YoE, plus $15k bonus.
