Thanks for the useful response. The people up top must really have time on their hands to be so condescending and ignorant. I live in New Jersey and plan to practice in NJ, NY, or DC. Seton Hall is my number one over Rutgers Newark, Brooklyn Law, Cardozo, and American in DC. I am also applying to Fordham, Georgetown, George Washington, and Cornell. Those are reaches considering my gpa is a 3.25 and my LSAT will likely be between 160-166 and I also have some criminal issues I will have to disclose. My view right now is that if I don't get accepted to any of my reach schools that Seton Hall will be my number 1 assuming I am accepted. I feel that if I am accepted to any of my reach schools it would be best for me to attend. I feel this way because there are so many law schools in my area that only the top ones are well known unlike in some states where there may only be a handful in a 200 mile radius. What do you think?
