You are right that is an option. Maybe it's what you should have done since your obviously so bitter about the process that you feel compelled to rant on this website all day. Once again, that is why I say to read the first post of a topic before you decide to contribute or not. OP clearly indicated she IS going to law school (i.e. abandoning law school is NOT an option for her) and needs to pay a deposit at one of these 3 schools. Wanted advice on the differences between these 3 schools, and advice on that only.
Out of curiosity, why didn't u retake and reapply rad_lulz? I mean sure Vandy is a great law school, don't get me wrong. Better then anywhere I have been accepted. But even if you got scholarship there, why didn't u retake/reapply for T14 $$? I mean Vandy only placed 22% to NLJ250, seems risky by your presumptions, no???
Thats a great question... Radlulz, why didn't you re-take and re-apply? You could've gotten a better score and received some better scholarships or t14 acceptances, and to pretend otherwise is lunacy.
