HA! It's me! I have the most pretentious application list ever:

1. Yale

2. Harvard

....crickets....

I could probably be convinced to go to Columbia or Chicago with a lot of $$$ and I may apply to them.

But I have options other than law school, I want to work in academia, and I don't want to spend my hard-earned cash on application fees to these schools.

To the people who picked Harvard over Yale, my question to you is why? What made you buck the USNWR rankings and the conventional TLS wisdom that smaller classes and more clerkships are better?
