So this is where TLS has gone batshit crazy. He's looking at schools, all at a discount, ranked in the low 20s. Its not like Grown at sticker is going to be a way better option than BC or W&L with money.
If you're OK with the south in general, take W&L. If you're OK with Bawstawn take BC. If you have some ties to Atl, take Emory. I wouldn't do any of these expecting DC or NYC.
I think Georgetown at sticker would probably the worst option out of all these. But that doesn't make any of them good options.
Also, data to back up your advice on W&L? Exactly how many W&L grads found work in Texas last year? Georgia? Mississippi?
How many W&L do you think wanted to find work in Mississippi last year? And, I need to clarify, I don't consider Texas part of "the south". If you want to work in Texas, you should go to school in Texas.
If OP wouldn't mind working in VA or NC or TN or SC or MD, I think W&L would be a fine choice. Especially if he is OK working at a small law firm. Thinking you're getting DC big law from W&L is crazy. But with nearly full tuition scholarship, OP doesn't need to biglaw gun or bust.
Obviously, just 1 more point might put Cornell into play. With that solid GPA, I'd consider retaking. But let's not act like he's choosing between a Sirloin and chicken feed.
