Okay, my question probably has a simple answer, but it's difficult to word it so bear with me. If for example I wanted to practice law in Tennessee, specifically Nashville (since that's where I'm from), and I did not get into Vanderbilt, what would my best options be? Assuming I got into the following schools, would it be better to go to a place such as a 24/34 ranked Emory or UGA, or a 69 ranked in-state UTK? In other words, I know you should "go to the best law school in the area you want to practice," but where do you draw the line between where ranking matters vs where a school is located?
it does have a simple answer; you retake the LSAT until you get into vandy
