The ordering above 50 though is quite meaningful.

Ya keep it tiered but 16 schools tied for 68? Which makes the next one is 84. So by being just a little bit below whatever the point total for 68 was you now look substantially worse. There's a bunch of schools that just jump back and forth between tied piles and increase decrease by 15 or so everyyear...

At least they're making an effort to improve the culture and inclusiveness of their school. Law school is hard and competitive enough; I don't want to go somewhere where I don't enjoy it.

You're not gonna enjoy it.

The JDMBAs at top programs seem pretty happy. Just have bulletproof employment prospects, bro.

I'm pretty sure I will. I get that law school isn't for everyone but people who I trust have been telling me my whole life I'm meant for this field. I love to argue and debate and I'm pretty well spoken.

What else are you going to do after graduating with a philosophy degree? And it's totally relevant to becoming a great lawyer.

The ordering outside of T36 is meaningless.

It's based on a raw score out of 100 that is rounded to the nearest whole number so that results in a lot of ties

Bro don't you know "you would be a great lawyer" is code for "you're an insufferable asshole"

Yes, even when your mom said it

I've seen IAFG on here before. Total naysayer. I've wanted to be lawyer my whole life. Why would someone like you spend your energy telling people not to go to law school when YOU'RE IN LAW SCHOOL. Doesn't that sound a little dumb?

I suggest using your higher level arguing skills to figure out why it's not dumb d00d

This is definitely credited. I've heard various people say this as though it was a compliment.
