There's just something about that burned-out chain smoker leathery face and Marge Simpson's sister's voice that spells a-m-b-r-o-s-i-a for me. I'm applying to USC for sure now.
And that's not even considering that highly successful Dukakis Presidential campaign she managed 20 years ago...the one that she features prominently in her bio.

You may have come to expect these type of threads from me, but here's the "dilemma" I've thought about. Should I think about it now? Probably not. Have I? I have, and I would like to ask a few pre-law and law students. Could you interpret my question in a pejorative way? Yeah. Should you? Perhaps.
After reading too many online posts, Leiter's rankings, Ciolli, and virtually every other resource I could find from Mantauk to Turow, I almost feel obligated to pick FCR now that I've happily cracked it -- and, really, I couldn't be more grateful and thrilled. Unfortunately, this feeling is more of an obligation than a choice. Most resources tell students to go to the "best" school they can get into, and it seems like the conventional wisdom deflates any sense of accomplishment in having, say, Western State if you have Florida Coastal, or even Cooley.
(Even with money, sometimes.)
So, really, how significant is the difference between these two tiers? Do they even exist? (Some people say "no.") I can't really wrap my mind around a terse, simple answer, and that's because, perhaps, there isn't one.
Perhaps I'm just going crazy while waiting for decisions, but I feel more tempted to write one as the days progress. I'm a reverse splitter, so it may not be completely absurd that I would want to explain my above-average LSAT score.
I hope that this post doesn't represent everything wrong with this forum of neurotic underachievers, but I'm prepared to take the heat from random strangers on the internet. Any thoughts?
