If thats true why do even IVY league grads keep showing up on the news crying about how they can't find work and how college "betrayed" them?
Quotet1 dosn't mean jack as far as "Guarenteed job", no such thing exists.
No, you are pretty much guaranteed a job if you go to Yale as long as you don't have a serious personality disorder.QuoteDo you even understand what you just wrote? #9 and #90 are the same damn thing. Thats like comparing ugly to fugly, if you have to go into debt to get either, its stupid, don't be stupid.
You are taking things waayyyyyy to far with this. Taking on 75k in debt to attend a T14 was one of the best financial decisions I ever made. Is taking out loans to attend a top-ranked school always a good idea? No. But it can be depending on your specific situation.QuoteAnd for the record- I am certainly NOT in the top 10% of LSAT scores. My initial scores are far from it. I posted this because I figured, if it's possible to get admitted at UMich with a high enough score (despite my GPA) then I would TRY to get that score on the LSAT by working even harder than I initially thought I would have to (with the score I'm getting now, I can get into 3rd/4th tier schools already, if I took the test now.) and focus on raising my score, instead of just getting above 160, as I initially wanted.
Based on lawschoolnumbers, it looks like you would need a 170+ to have a reasonable shot.
