If I don't want to work in either market will it really make any difference?

If my choice is between Gonzaga (T3) and Kansas (66)

Should rank, or the market I want to work in be more important?

I don't really know if I'd rather work in Spokane or Kansas City.

Businesses often give money back guarantees based on the fact that very few consumers actually collect the guarantee money. 
If LEEWS would pay for your law school tuition in the case that you didn't get in the top 1/3, then you may have a pretty compelling case, but I doubt too many are taking the time and trouble to collect on the guarantee for $150.00

You guys have seriously improved the quality of this thread. 
Do you think there is much of a chance that LSAC will change the LSAT anytime in the near future?
If they do change it, do you think schools would give even more consideration to the score?

I love getting input from people who got 170+ on the LSAT, but to be honest, I'm hoping to get in contact with some people who are probably going to a school ranked between 51 and 100.

What have you heard about career options and job placement?
Are there some jobs that might be out of reach for us?
Is there really a big difference between T2 and T3?
Have you been accepted to T2s but rejected/waitlisted to some lower ranked schools?

So do you guys think the two clauses in the 2nd Amendment are indepenedent of each other then? 

The first recognizing a need for a militia and the second recognizing that the people have the right to own guns?

I honestly don't know.  The founders could have been more clear.
I just believe that the first clause relies on the second clause.  If individuals don't have the right to bear arms then a militia wouldn't have the right to bear arms.  A militia is regulated by the government, not armed by the government.

I also don't think that the government had a surplus of weapons at that time that could be distributed to militias when needed.  If the state needed to call in a militia, it would depend on individual gun ownership to do so.

I got a scholarship offer from a T3 school that required students to be in the top 10% of the class in order to maintain the scholarship beyond the first year.
I talked to admissions and they said that only 1 one in 10 full tuition scholarship recipients that attend the school keep the scholarship into the second year.
Scholarships based on merit only have a 10% renewal rate, so wouldn't they have just as high of a scholarship renewal percentage if they just randomly assigned scholarships?

I would say that their grading is probably pretty random.

I also heard that there is a lot of support to reform the LSAT.  It's possible that the test could be changed to in order to evaluate effectiveness in more areas than the current LSAT does. 
I'm sure there will be a lot of argument about how to best do that.
