Choosing the Right Law School / Re: Wisconsin vs. American
« on: February 07, 2009, 08:43:31 AM »
i would choose wisconsin with in-state tuition over american, by virtue of being a midwesterner.  big ten athletics don't hurt, either.  but shoot, if someone else will foot the bill for american..

Choosing the Right Law School / Unsure what to do, help?

So here's my situation..  3.99 (4.12 LSAC), 160 LSAT with a modicum of prep.  I've applied to a handful of schools (LSN posted below).  I know with some prep I could score higher on the LSAT and apply to a few t14 schools (would probably be interested in Duke, Virginia, Berkeley) and also some top 25 schools (Emory, Notre Dame, University of Texas, maybe Boston University).  I don't know if it's just the name that I'm interested in.  I'm definitely not interested in accruing t14 debt and I want to minimize my debt regardless of where I end up attending.  I'm also not terribly interested in biglaw.  I guess don't want to end up feeling like I'm selling myself short, so to speak, but I think what's bothering me most is that I want to keep my options open for the future.  I'm afraid that if I don't go to a top 50+ school that I will end up regretting it.

I've thought about studying for the June LSAT whilst waiting for this year's admissions cycle to finish up, and if my score was high enough, I could wait and apply to law school in the fall.  I guess I'm looking for opinions, insight, whatever you want to throw my way (I'm looking for a little more than "retake." as that much is apparent =).  As a community that has faced some of the same issues that I'm facing right now, I wanted to turn to you all.  Thanks in advance for any advice.
