This thread went to hell
that being said, I went to Rutgers University in New Brunswick. Not Ivy League, but not some random school. As for softs, I am a CASA, work at a law firm, started a club at school, organize and run fundraisers, and just to show I am different, I skydive.
That being said, I was planning on peppering basically all the top T-14 schools. I don't mind others opinion, no matter how blunt. Actually, I would prefer to not get into a higher ranked school in the T-14. So when I finish at the top of a lower ranked school in the T-14, I'll know the others made a mistakes. Motivation always helps.
One lesson I learned that I imparted on others is everything you do matters. One bad year when I was not in the mind frame to go to school because "I knew everything" is coming back to bite me in the rear. Where i go is important for my ego, yes. More importantly, I want to go to a place where I will have job choices after. I believe the T-14 will do that for me no matter where I land
