What sort of money did you get from these schools?  None are worth anything close to sticker price (pepperdine included).  At this point, you should be focusing on minimizing your debt rather than on the rankings, since they don't really matter so much when you get down to the lower Tiers. 

Given the information you've provided, go Chapman, as an 80% scholly will allow you to leave law school with a serviceable amount of debt for the job you're likely to receive.  Just make sure they don't have any nasty stipulations attached.

Anti, calling someone names is abusive. Therefore calling someone a troll is abusive.

Not if it's true lil bruh.

I "chose to re-interpret [your] statement literally."  How was I supposed to interpret it?  Was I supposed to ignore the nonsense pervading the literal context and only consider the irrational, whiny emotional undertones?

To correct you again, some people with more than 2 brain cells may in fact believe that law and entertainment have nothing to do with each other; people can be incredibly ignorant. Consequently, when I don't know you and I read your silly post for the first time, I have no reason to assume that you aren't as ignorant and/or stupid as your post reads.

So you're admitting you're wrong then?  ok, good.

The basics of writing in English stipulate that your words be intelligible when interpreted literally if you want people to understand you. Let me know if that's not clear - I'm willing to work with you on this.

Your ability to communicate effectively in writing evinces your quality as a legal practitioner and advisor to prospective students. The kids here better listen up.

TL;DR: blah blah, nonsense.

I would explain to you how an education in entertainment can create a similar amount of debt, but I'm afraid that informing you will lead you to actually back up your claims in the future with evidence, instead of just shooting from the hip - something that would take away much of the 'charm' that made your original post so much fun to tear apart.

So again, you're admitting that you're wrong?  Sweet.  Feel free to, you know, throw in an actual argument anytime.

Anti09 - Do not insult me on this forum with name calling. You will be reported for abuse. Be frustrated not with me, but with your own failure to communicate effectively in writing. To refresh your selective memory:

You said, verbatim: "the entertainment industry has nothing to do with the legal industry." Yes, you actually wrote this.

You also said, verbatim: "a law degree puts you potentially a quarter million dollars in debt whereas the entertainment industry doesn't."  This statement is absurd at best because it implies that an education in entertainment cannot potentially put you in just as much debt as a law degree when in reality it can. Disagree with my interpretation of what you said? Read your statement again. You are taking issue not with me, but with the most basic elements of english writing and logical reasoning.  Own up to the fact that your statements were absurd and you simply got called out on it.

lol you are just darling.  On the off chance you aren't a troll, let's take this one step at a time:

1) That's not abuse lil bruh.

2) You were comparing the job opportunities of the legal industry with that of the entertainment industry.  When I pointed out the fact that they were entirely unrelated, you then chose to re-interpret my statement literally.  As in, there was no relation whatsoever between entertainment and law.  Anybody with two brain cells to rub together knows this is not the case, and based on the context it is obvious what the statement intended.

3) Do you not know how to quote people on forums?  And you can stop saying "verbatim" lol.

4) I'm still not sure how someone with "an education in entertainment" (?) can spend a quarter million dollars doing so or why that would ever be necessary.  Did they spend seven years getting a degree in Theater Tech?  I'm actually genuinely curious.

5) I'm taking issue with the basic elements of English writing?  What? ...oh, forget it, you're clearly a troll.

Oh I noticed that about you Duncan.  Its kool.  You will have to get used to defending CBEs. The law attracts too many insecure d.bags that think they can make themselves feel better by putting others down, I've noticed as well.

Bruh I'm long past the point where I get off from putting other people down (and anonymously on the internet, no less).  I get off by preventing people from making terrible life choices.  I had a lot of help in deciding where to go to LS and I'd like to pay the favor forward.  That entails yes, shitting on TTTToilets so people don't drop a quarter million dollars (!) on a degree that, in many cases, are more likely than not to be worthless.  And don't think I'm just a prestige whore - I fully recognize that there is a place and time to attend a lower ranked school, just not when you have to bury yourself in six digits of debt for a job that will almost certainly make you $50,000 / year or less.

Look, if I was really just trolling, why would I go to the trouble of providing statistics to back it up?

Entirely depends on where you want to work.  If you want L.A., go USC.  If you want DC/NYU, go GULC.  Nice options tho.

Yeah, I read what you posted, I just didn't respond because it wasn't helpful. If you have something for me besides "don't", feel free to chime in.

Anyways, I told myself I can only justify going if I get a substantial amount of aid ("substantial" being yet to be defined, probably something like 1/3-1/2 off first year merit) and that means I have to crush, absolutely conquer, the LSAT. And I have a plan, a plan that involves me being just miserable and endlessly mired in practice tests for the next three months. I made a bombass spreadsheet and everything. Wish me luck.

Dude you should not be going to Vermont for any less than free.  Did you not look at the website I posted?

For the love of God, don't pay sticker at a TTT like Vermont.  Their employment statistics are absolutely horrible.  There is no scenario where it makes sense to drop $240k on a school that only places 45% of its graduates into full time legal jobs (with no associate salary information provided), and where a full 23% are completely unemployed. 

You say you want to be a lawyer?  Well, if you attend Vermont, your odds are that more likely than not you will not find any long-term legal job.  Did you read what I just wrote?  Read it again.  Unless you are going there for free and don't mind the very possible outcome of wasting three years of your life for a degree you'll never use, do not attend Vermont Law.
