Anyone stupid enough to write in a person who isn't a recognized write in candidate (who then by the rules of elections does not get counted) is someone who shouldn't be voting anyways.

Hey tokenpuddy,
The only legally clean candidate has been blacklisted by the corrupt democratic party trying to fix an election.

When Clinton is perp walked into the FBI interrogation there will be one man still standing and that is Bernie sanders---get it?

It's not a write in dumbass its simply called a free election vote--- we get to do that occasionally in the USA.

Get it now?

Clean the shite out of your diapers-- you stink---put some big boy pants on while you are at it

You dumbass!!!!

Got offered a full ride at Charlotte.  Love the atmosphere there-- just enough city hustle, but still a lot of Southern charm.

No full ride at CUNY, but they're tuition is very low.  $23K for out of state and $14K for in-state, which I would qualify for after the first year.

I love the idea of NY (coming from DC) but am not sure if it's just all cooked up in my head.  Headed to visit this weekend.  My thought is that networking and job opportunities are better in NY, but I also believe that law school and life in general is what you make it.

Am I just having a really bad case of FOMO?  I should go to Charlotte but... I feel like I'd be missing out on NY.

Also I should add that the end goal for me is to practice public interest law for 5-7 years and start my own nonprofit providing athlete advocacy, particularly in sports where athletes are subject to repetitive head trauma.  Going to a top ranked school has never been my goal.  I want to get my law degree, build my network, and branch off on my own.

I wonder if you made up your mind. But remember. They both are crumby schools. If cuny was a T1, that gets you the 160,000 dollar starting scary, and the price remained low 20ks then is say go. But will only get 50,000. That debt is not worth it in the face of never having a dime. Like debt will make your life hell. Cuny will be 80-90k. Could buy two houses. Why give that up when you could get a free ride and never worry about it again.

People, who are looking for an attorney will presume T14 lawyers are better. Employers know this. So to ensure that people come to their firm over anyone else, they higher the highest T14ers they can. They probably know, the quality of their education is little better than tier four. But they don't care about that. They care about what will get clients in the door.

When in doubt, go to TaftU ::)

If on a 4.0 scale you are ok, but it hurts the brain how many have 5.0 or even 6.0 or above GPA scales anymore.

Its like telling your kid they are an A student, but A=C

I agree with what Loki has already said, and with your numbers you will get into most schools.

One thing to consider:

Don't get too caught up in the T14 thing. What I mean is, not all T14 schools are magical just because they are T14. Some, like HYS, are truly elite institutions and you will probably get a job based on pedigree alone.

But, depending on where you want to live and what you want to do, any T14 is not necessarily better than any non-T14, especially of there is a big price tag attached.

Let's say you want to live in LA and your dream is to be a prosecutor. Would T14 Virginia be a better bet than UCLA/USC at a steep discount? In my opinion, no.

The T14 are all great schools, don't get me wrong. My point is that you should at least consider other well respected schools, especially if there is money on the table.

....pop pop pop

A special thank you from us Bernie fans to the man himself!!!

Thank you for staying in the democratic race at least until the convention...it makes liary Clinton squirm everyday and eats away at her voter support-----some of her supporters are done with her now.

The meeting between bill Clinton and loretta lynch was a blessing because she must recuse herself-- if not formally she will have to side step this.


Hillary can only stall her FBI interrogation a little bit-)-- the chickens are coming home to roost.

Clinton does NOT want to talk to the FBI. Much as she falsely claims she is eadger to move on.....

Didn't happen for Nixon; wont happen for Clinton. Lmfao!!!!

Glad to hear that I helped!

If you haven't already, I would recommend lawschoolnumbers.com (make sure you look at the graphs tab) to research the schools you like and see how similar people did in prior cycles; looking quickly, it would appear that you are on the border for Stanford. I would also recommend lawschooltransparency.com to get a good idea of what the school's actual employment numbers and prospects (incl. clerkships, if you're into that) look like.

Finally, in addition to applying to your dream school and other T14 schools that are "national schools," definitely apply to some schools (the "safety schools") in the region you want to practice, so you have some comparable offers.

Hey loki13, thank you so much! You made me feel a lot better. A few people on other forums have been telling me to retake, but I think your answer makes the most sense to me. I feel like I put it all out there when I took it the first time, I had a really good test day and felt like I did my best- raising it a few more points doesn't seem worth the time and energy and stress. Glad to hear someone agrees, so thank you! :)
