I feel like half of them are humblebrags too. I mean if you can get into every school, most of them with a full ride, then you should be competent enough to figure out which option is best for your circumstances.

Yeah I have no idea how these keep happening. There's some kind of weird disconnect between admissions and financial aid spectrums, or people consistently have the same blind spot in applications.

Arizona State v. U Washington v. Fordham

I'm from Iowa, but I think I'd like to work somewhere warm like Miami or Atlanta.

Hey! That's me you're mocking. While Ithaca is certainly ugh, more important is that Ithaca is not NYC.

Yeah, and they're all in random dispersed locations: e.g. Colorado, SMU, and St. John's

Got into (TTT where I want to work) for free, but I also got into (TT 39 spots up the USNWR rankings) in a completely random geographic area with a great program in Unicorn law @ sticker, I think I'm going to take the long term security.

parking spots taken by staff are really the school funded jobs of this formula; I hope brut can tell us how to remedy that

But I'll throw in SMU vs. Houston (and sometimes Baylor) because the answer is always the same: retake, go to UT, or don't go period >> pick living in Houston or Dallas/whichever is cheaper.

Hamilton/ Cornell full ride v H sticker for NYC biglaw.

On a side note, I did make a H v Butler thread and it did help me out (although to be fair it also devolved into third parties yelling at one another)

Me and the person consistently responding to the thread.

"Which regional school in X Athletic conference is best for Y major market?"

"I got into a 'strong' regional (#30-#60) where I want to work for $$$, but I can also pay sticker at this 'incredible top ranked school' (#20-#30) in a random place. How much does ranking/prestige matter?"
