Look dude, shut the f*ck up. I've read your posts and at first I was actually happy for you since you've been ecstatic as all hell at the prospect of going to Appalachian in the middle of f'ing nowhere. But now that you've attacked me and actually started posting on other threads that a JD is a JD no matter what school it's from, I'm gonna have to sh*t on you and wish you good luck if you think you'll be getting the same jobs Harvard grads would be getting. Even NYLS grads have a leg up on you. In a perfect world, the "JD is a JD no matter where it comes from" argument would fly, but buddy, we don't live in a perfect world and you'll find it damn near hard to find a decent job coming from that T4 craphole. You know what, yes, I'm not better in that I'll be going to a T3 school, but at least I know better than to come on here and delude people by saying they'll be fine going to a school where many many people in the area have no respect for it. By the people I've seen on LSD and on LSN, it's not a stretch of the imagination that the OP can get into a higher ranked school with his numbers which will open up many many more doors for him. I've always said when it comes to T3/T4 schools you would just go where you'll be happy and where you want to work after graduation, but that advice is for those of us that don't have the stats to get in anywhere better and should just make good with what we have. This guy CAN get in somewhere better. Plus, it doesn't even sound like the OP is overtly happy about going to GG since he's already looking at other options. It's not about being prideful, it's about doing the smart thing for your career...I'm actually going to go against the grain and tell you to wait a year and apply to some lower T2 schools very early in the next application cycle. With your numbers, you can get into some decent T2s and manage some scholarship money out of them. Just from the rumblings on this board, it seems to me that GG isn't a very good school on the west coast and your opportunities would be very limited graduating from there. Check out LSN, believe me, you can get into some better schools. Good luck.
And you get the Dumbass Award of the day, Hopeful... Look, this obsession with getting in at a higher school at all cost is garbage! Yes, it's nice, but chances are that with applicants every year, we're lucky we get in when we do, especially when it involves free tuition! Don't be prideful! Take GG
