My god this is the credited question.
I found TFA to be two wasted years surrounded by people I mainly didn't like. There are a lot of self-righteous types who just aren't fun. It also didn't really get me into any law schools my numbers alone wouldn't have, so don't be expecting some kind of massive application boost therefrom.
If you want to teach, do TFA. If you want to be a lawyer, go to Cornell. If you don't know, do TFA, if only because it's better to waste 2 years than $200,000, and maybe by the end you'll know what you want to do with your life.
