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..

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.
