One factor to consider is that since I'm an international, there is a high likelihood that I will end up practicing outside of the US eventually, and the portability of the JD degree diminishes rapidly outside of the T6 as you go down the ranking. So right now, I'm looking at applying to the T6 and maybe Penn thrown in for good measure. I'm wondering if this is too much of a risk, though.
Numbers-wise, I'm 173/4.0 (UG in US).
There's no risk, at least this cycle. A few years ago you might not have broken T6 at all, but with apps being down as much as they are now I'd say apply to HYSCC and save yourself the trouble, so long as scholarship money isn't a big consideration.
