Retaking would only get me to Davis, in NorCal. Waitlisted at Hastings and would take McGeorge over either of the two considering COA.

My main considerations are COA and employment prospects but I definitely don't want biglaw. There's no way I'll break the T14 regardless.

This isn't true at all. A 170 would open up UCLA and USC with the current application numbers. Plus a 170/3.1 would give you good money to UCI and access to a great LRAP.

With McGeorge being free and my family's (job) connections in the Central Valley, plus the fact that I visited and really liked it, this does not need to be a debate about getting into a "better" school, unless that school is UNC.

But you said it's in an area you are fond of and UNC wouldn't get you back to California.

UNC. not a question. totally different class of school. NC is a fantastic place to live. the degree will be worth it.
