You mentioned "work hard, play hard." In my opinion, if you are truly committed to the former, you can certainly embrace the later. This can really be done at any school, but the advice above about getting a job is certainly true: the higher ranked the school is, the less hard you have to work to graduate above your peers in order to get a good job. Depending on your stats, apply to the T20 schools in cities where you would want to live, read about the schools, and then go visit them to get a feel for the student body.
This is helpful. Thank you so much.
If you don't mind me asking what Law School you went to?
Also, i just wanted to get students perspectives on specific law schools when it comes to the social aspect of it and the great time people have in law schools.
