I guess I should reveal a little bit more then to help you understand why this is a difficult choice for me-
First, my numbers: 3.9/166. Second, as stated earlier, I went to BC undergrad so I don't know if that would be a plus or a minus on my resume having attended the same law school as undergrad. At this point, I should probably wave to all the ad comms out there since they can pretty easily identify me now
However, add in this hypothetical- what if I were to have enough money saved away that law school doesn't increase my debt at all? The scholarship, therefore in this hypothetical situation, would just allow me to put a down payment on a house or something, but it wouldn't put me in a situation of financial strain that would, in theory, force me to consider the starting salary of my job right out of law school (IE Biglaw).
Knowing that, would anyone change their vote? And Towlie, I'm hoping to be in your boat and get some Penn loving, although its unlikely unless I get my LSAT up a bit (i'm retaking in Feb to have a higher score for those schools who are still waiting on a decision about me)
