Make that two.  I got a partial scholarship to a tier one with my ACT score, and my parents talked me out of going because "it's all the way on the east coast and still really expensive.  Why can't you go to school here?"

18 year old me was an idiot and listed to them.  However, I have done a lot with my education and I am really proud of it. 

No one in law school will know where I went to undergrad and I won't be judged by it very much after that (I hope)

Yo, can we add third and fourth tier to the list so "some of us" don't feel slighted.

 ;)

Done.

i'm pretty sure that myself, likewise, and bass all went to the same undergrad.  bass is going ivy.  likewise is going to argueably the second best school in the area.  not bad when the first is penn.  me, my lsat was mediocre and i'm still going to a pretty good school.  the thing is, you gotta dig pretty deep to find our school in the rankings.

TTT for undergrad and then G-town for grad school (which doesn't really matter).

I took the money and ran in undergrad since I was offered a full-ride and the family financial situation was tight. Everything's worked out pretty well all-in-all, but I do get the impression that if I had a name school on my app, some of my law schools decisions might have worked out differently.
