See above re overachievers. I find that the higher the achievement, the more insufferable the a-hole. Just an observation.
So basically we have two people with the same motivation i.e. to attend the highest ranked law school they are admitted to.
Your assertion is that a person who was able to be admitted to both HLS and YLS and chose to attend YLS is somehow more "insufferable" than a person who chose to attend HLS after not receiving an offer from YLS in spite of the fact that they're both using the same criterion to make their decison?
Is it because you believe that such an individual is predisposed to becoming more of an a-hole based on the fact that they were able to receive an offer from the highest ranked law school? And perhaps that a rejection has some kind of "humbling" effect??
Didn't you get admitted into YLS with a 161 LSAT???
