Boston College
Boston University

At best, you're going to the 6th best law school IN BOSTON.

That's not taking into account competition from just about every law school in the northeast, just about all of whom will rank ahead of you because they went to a better school.

Depends on what you mean by "good school."

Do you mean Harvard? Yes, you've killed your chances at Harvard.

You still have a shot at the lower end of the T14 and plenty of T1s (many of whom, with a very good LSAT score, will throw money at you).

Retake the LSAT. Take a class or something.

By the way, Niger is not a racial insult. It is a country in Africa.

Indiana is not a good idea if you want to practice in Los Angeles. UCLA is the best school of the four and a better value than USC anyway. Loyola isn't a bad school, but you'll be much better off going to UCLA (one of the best law schools in southern California) and not being put in a hole in terms of finding a job.

The recording does not support what you're claiming.

It'd be nice/open/honest for you to play the entire recording.

OR am I better off going to the best school I can provided that it is the best 1 or 2 schools in the market, like Loyola Chicago (which is second in Chicago to Northwestern) or University of Denver, etc?

This is generally correct but you are really, really, really off-base here. Loyola Chicago isn't even close to second in Chicago. It's obviously behind University of Chicago and Northwestern, but it's also behind Illinois, Notre Dame, Michigan, etc.

and suddenly you are a serious international and domestic tax and business attorney that can pretty much practice anywhere in the world.

No, you aren't.

Hastings is the better school, but worth paying full price opposed to a scholarship at GGU? That is debatable.

Nope. Not debatable. Hastings is much, much better. Your point has merit generally, but that's far too wide of a gap to jump w/ a scholarship.

North Dakota.
