Law School Admissions / Re: Addendum or not?

I would explain it in full, with each gap addressed. To the extent that the understand you breaks in school to be meaningful experiences, rather than unpredictable breaks, it will definetly benefit you.

Yeah sure, you gotta think about it as an investment, a few thousand in the short run is never gonna compare to the differnce in career prospects between those institutions. You just gotta think long term, what do you, where do you want to be, and go from there.

At the end of the day the better choice, even within the T14, but especially elsewhere, is generally to go to school where you want to practice. Often people who play it a different way get locked into a job market that they weren't really interested in. Law degrees are (at least straight out of LS) are less portable than you might think.

Yeah I think that is generally accurate, I think that if you are married to the idea of practicing in Cali you should really consider going to a law school in the state, you are gonna be more connected in terms of EIW hiring and alumni, which matters more than you might initially think. Wash U numbers should put you in the running for UCLA and USC, which  might be better choices for you.

Harsh words, bottom line if you want to practice in the Dakotas this is not a bad option. Just try to minimize the debt and you'll be good.
