Won't happen. Even some T14 grads are coming out with numbers like that these days. Can you really see them saying "Hey, we know you graduated Yale, clerked for Justice Scalia, and have a job offer at the best firm in the state, but we totes can't admit you to the bar despite the fact that you aced the exam because you have $300K in debt combined from UG and LS. Peace out, yo."

Wow. I stand corrected. Also flabbergasted.
I also stand incredibly glad that I got some scholarships. Wow.
