If you're not sure you want to go to school this fall, you need to decide soon before you end up in debt for nothing. Of if you are on scholarship, you end up jobless for nothing.I like this response I will increase your reputation.

I always though neoconservativism was a B.S. concept anyway. It's like those goobers who claim to be progressives. Yea whatever
Read more and practice writing. Transcribing what you read can also help. You got in with your personal statement, and (if they read it) your writing sample. The admissions committee thinks your writing is competative with your classmates. I still think you may be better at it than you think.The best way to improve your writing is to increase your reading. You have to love to read before you become a truly good writer.
Reading the cases, and briefing them everyday may help you as well.
I think you made a good decision based on your needs, and your goals. What they think on this board does not matter. You really shouldn't concern yourself with snobbery. That is the norm for any profession, and in all walks of life. If that bothers you you're going to have a tough time in everything you do. I'm sure the rest of them could care less about what you think of thier choices.
I didn't pay attention to the ranking until I got acceptances. I based my choices on my personal goals. I'd say about 10% of the Profs at my school whent to my school, and maybe 20% Harvard, and Yale. Everyone where I live (Philly) went to Temple, Villanova, Dickinson, and Penn in that order of choice. I was told by close friends who are practicing attorneys in big law, and solo to avoid Penn if I want to be a big shot in Philly. Mind you I'm a non-trad as well, so my situation is somewhat unique. I already have an established business, and a legal client list for when I graduate (If I go solo right away).
The best business managers will look beyond the school you went to, read your sample writing, and insist on meeting you. I wouldn't want to work with or for someone who's dumb enough to assume I am intelligent just because I went to a T14 (or for non lawyers - L.S.). That's bad mojo.
