Look, maybe I'm coming off as a prick, I have just been annoyed by stupid people on this board lately. All I was trying to say was that (1) TAP is not an automatic admit, (2) those who do get in DO have an advantage during the first few weeks, (3) that advantage usually slips away by test time, (4)BY AND LARGE, TAP students don't end up being the cream of the crop in each class (as with everything in the law, there are exceptions to the general rule)
Just understand these things before jumping into the time and financial committment of law school. That's all I am saying . . . . good luck.
P.S. Be nice to me because you never know, I could end up being your academic mentor (its a type of tutor program open to all students) during first year . . . . .
