"you never know unless you try"
« on: January 03, 2008, 04:44:30 PM »
Am I the only one that keeps hearing that and feels compelled to apply to schools out of my range "just to see"?

And if not, is there a support group for this sort of thing...

If you have the money to burn, go for it.

TITCR.  I spent so much money on apps this year.  My new LSAT made me shift school range too so I had to keep going.

I feel the same.  If you got the change to do it, why the hell not?  i applied all over knowing full well I will get rejected by most.  But you never know what can happen.

Waste of money. Law school is 100% a numbers game. Even your skin color has a quantitative value.

I just got an acceptance from a school where the median LSAT is 163! (ChiaShu said 25%) So, I guess it's true... you never know unless you try  ;)

I went for one extreme reach.  Maybe extraordinary SF's will touch a particular AdComm... who knows.
