Yale only ranks that low because most of them self select out of biglaw buddy. Also spending 150k on law school looking for biglaw is a waste unless you do go to a very high ranked school.
Also if you are so intelligent then why don't you retake, get a 170+, and provided you don't have a sub 3.0 gpa have a good chance at UVA ED or Northwestern with 2 years work experience?
The "smart" and "intelligent" person would probably do this instead of spending 150k on a school that isn't even ranked in the top 5 for a crowded and oversaturated market.
A) You assumed correctly about my gpa which is a 3.95 and a 4.0 in math major.
B) If I were to go to Rutgers, that would not be close to 150k, instead it would be more like 50-70k.
C) I am not retaking because I cannot, and I am a sucky standerdized test taker so there is virtually nothing I can do in that department.
D) When I said biglaw, it doesn't necessarily have to be a major firm, provided that I am making somewhere between 85-160k first year out.
E) Regarding the saturated market, you are only taking into account present numbers, neglecting to consider the future economy which is in an upward trend at the moment, and will hopefully only get better with time.
F) May I ask where you are/were for law school and how "intelligent" you feel you're own decision to go to law school was?
