Most of the people that TLS as a whole tells not to go are people who have a very low chance of succeeding. Many of the people who are saying these things have a very high chance of succeeding (be it through quality of school, scholarships, and a propensity for high class rank).
Nobody here in law school *knows* they will succeed, they just like their chances given the available data and their personal situation. There's no real discrepancy here.
