It's not going to make a bit of difference whether you list it or not.

What in the world is "whistleblower-esque law?"  In any event, just go to the best school you get in to.  That's the best advice anyone will give you regardless of what you want to do. 

Schools aren't going to let you work full-time when you're there, and it's a terrible idea anyway.  If you want to work there for a year or two and then apply, go for it.

Ok, this doesn't get off to a very good start.  "I believe LSAC starts accepting them around July 1st every year. That is when you should have your application done."  Is that a joke?  Even the most gunnerish gunners don't have their apps done by July 1st.  I don't think there's a school in the country that will even accept an application before mid-September.

Wow, how can somebody argue about something so trivial?  These schools all suck.

Why bother?  I mean, what's the point?

I agree completely, but how else are you going to frame a discussion about "NY schools are getting screwed for being in new york" without considering what they would be outside of new york?  My whole claim is that fordham is ranked correctly, and that the current ranking includes a BOOST from New York, not a handicap for being from New York as the OP suggests.

The point is pretty simple.  They're not "ranked correctly" because their student body is stronger than similarly-ranked schools.  Why?  Because they send almost all of their graduates to NYC, so the lawyers and judges in Podunk have never heard of them, which hurts their reputation score.

We purposely don't target particular characteristics.

Not even intelligence?  Well, I guess that could make it difficult for them to fill the class.

Texas Tech might do it, but no decent school does.
