But beyond that, you shouldn't even be considering TFA if you don't care about the actual mission. You'd just be robbing kids of a good mentor, and good mentors of a chance to make a difference, all for the great payout of nothing. Besides being a waste of your time professionally, it should at least be a bit of a difficult question for you morally.MoHendy wrote:EDIT: Removed LSAT & GPA for the ppl who can't follow directions.
This makes you one of the lucky few who got away with saying something really douchey when people were trying to help you without the topic being derailed.
I don't know where everyone got off thinking I didn't care for TFA. I very much do and have enjoyed teaching my kids tremendously. I'm trying to make a very difficult decision here, and you guys are right, if I didn't care for TFA I wouldn't have brought my question here anyway, considering I don't really use forums like these normally.

That + the "Which one looks better?" makes the idea seem fake, but maybe it just came off badly.
As for LSAT-GPA comments, I asked nicely at the start and still got the usual ppl coming in and being like "you have no hope, retake." Don't think my response is douchey at all, but to each his own I suppose. My question wasn't "GPA-LSAT-URM rate me" it was simply share your opinion on which of these two opportunities looks more attractive to law schools.
If someone tells me they are going to jump off a ledge so don't try to talk them out of it, I still might try. Same principle applies. What makes it douchey is that you had the option to just ignore it or to give a polite "thanks, but no thanks", instead of a snapping "learn to read" type comment.
