JFC, Chicagoburger claiming that 10% is the same as 40%, and Johan claiming that a median salary for high performers is somehow the same thing as the typical outcome at these TTTs.

I get that people can have differences of opinion on risk tolerance, but to flat-out fabricate shit is uncalled for. Knock it off.

At least you're consistently dumb so people know to ignore you.
Stop projecting your unwise decisions.


you dont think its easier to get top 10% against dumber classmates? theres nothing debatable about that statement. its absolutely true.


It probably is easier if you had the numbers to get into a much higher ranking school. But OP's numbers are not better than the median at either of these schools. And if you did have the numbers to get into a better school with better job prospects, it would be dumb to go to one of these schools.

One of my best friends had upper 160s on LSAT and went to Kent cause he thought he would crush it and ended up median with a shitty job out of law school. Several years later he's doing fine, but he says he wishes he had gone to a better school and had a better start with less debt.

I agree that it's hard to know how you'll do. But if you're not median st Kent, it's not like he would have been better than median at a higher ranked law school. There's no way of knowing if you'll get "law" before law school, but that if you do or don't get it remains constant between Kent and say Illinois. If you aren't median against dumber kids at Kent, you're not gonna be median against smarter kids at Illinois.
Saying it's easier for the same person to get top 10% at Kent than top 10% at Illinois seems like an innocuous and factually accurate statement.

Except the median at Illinois might be substantially larger than the median at Kent. And there's also a huge disparity in job prospects for students at or below the median at either school.
