The reason is pisses so many people off is choosing is a based on so many factors (risk averse/neutral, location, ties, career choices, biglaw or bust, etc.) that just posting random hypos helps no one.



:cry: I'm sorry if I pissed folks off by clogging TLS and posting a thread to help my decision on the matter, instead of thinking about how my thread would or should help and affect everyone else. :lol:

Except you have no decision to make. Hence why you're annoying.

No


This response is really helpful. Please elaborate.

Not tryna answer hypos breh


OP, you have ~3.5 and have never taken a practice test. Like others have said, at this point, assuming you will score well enough to get into a T14 (about the 97th percentile or better) is just ridiculous.

If we were to assume you beast the LSAT (169-171), your choice will likely come down to choosing between a few T14s at sticker and a fat schollys at UGA or Emory. Both are fine options.

I think the poll makes it pretty clear.

T14 is usually going to be TCR, but like everyone has said, they can't really give you advice without a real LSAT score. With your GPA, you probably need 170+ to have a shot at the T14. If you get that score, then this becomes a legit discussion and you'll have to weigh employment prospects/prestige vs debt. If not, there's still plenty of schools you can get into and probably get scholarships from, but it completely changes the question.

EDIT: Skimmed the thread and missed it before, but Nova is spot on.
