I'm not tasking rhetorically; there are legitimate answers to the question. But without those answers from you--without an understanding of why you particularly value CCN--it's hard to address your hypo.
This is going to sound like a really shitty reason, but I have always dreamed of going to Columbia and living in NYC. Recently I got accepted.
The reason I'm asking this question is because if, in a vacuum, attending Columbia makes sense, I want to go. But if I'm genuinely jeopardizing my future (as opposed to merely not capitalizing on other opportunities), I might have to reconsider.
Honestly, I would wait a year and retake the LSAT in hopes of a butler or hammy before attending another school. The reason this isn't option #1 is because even if I do increase my score (which I think is likely given that almost all my points were missed on LG), neither of those schollies are guaranteed. And then there's the risk that I won't increase my score, and I also won't get re-accepted.
Basically, there's a strong emotional pull towards Columbia. Is that the best reason for attending a law school? Definitely not. But as long as it's not going to fuck me, I think I might do it.
I'm a fan of CLS but this is not a good/healthy approach. Feel free to PM.
I get that. I guess I'm just trying to figure out exactly how unhealthy it is.
