if you had the choice of either 2 million dollars CASH or law school acceptance into a school ranked from 15-50, which would you rather have?

Cash.

I'd go to a Tier 3 or 4 with a smile on my face ;D

Cash.  That's a nice retirement.  I could quit on that.
You better check yourself before you wreck yourself.

definitely the 2 million.  i'd happily go to a lower ranked (tier 2) school and have the cash.  maybe you should ask, 2 million dollars and tier 4, or non-aba or something, versus HYS, or ls of choice?  something like that.

Oh, this is a no brainer.  I'd take the 2 million dollars. Heck I already have a BA from a decent school, so that's enough education.

1 million would be "no touch", meaning I'd invest it somewhere, most likely real estate I would rent out.

500k I'd do stuff with, and the other 500k I'd invest in a small business, so I'd have something to do. I'd probably franchise a Jack In the Box or something like that.

2 million dollars. I'd graduate debt-free and still be a lawyer.

I could be happy at plenty of lower-ranked schools.

OK...HERE IS THE TWIST.

if you take the 2mil, you cant go to law school or become a lawyer in the US or any other country.
