Again, just to get back to median from where I am at (Median is like 3.33), I would have to basically be 3.6 next year. That is top 10 to 15%. The math doesn't add up. Since most professors don't give C's and no other class I will take will be worth six credits, it did tremendous damage.
On the flip side of this, the one grade is a statistical outlier. Absent it, I was at about 3.5 for the semester.
Hence, returning back my thoughts were these: A) I know that I am smart enough to get good grades here and even better grades somewhere lower ranked; B) Given that, is it better to be on the high end at a lower ranked school T-1 or the low end at a higher ranked school... most data says the former; C) GULC is not cheap so there is also the option of attending a public law school in my home state; D) With one grade being a statistical outlier, maybe a school only slightly lower ranked looks at that and gives it a second though; E) Go f--- yourself if you don't have anything helpful to say.
In other words, say what you want to hear or you will keep posting until others do.
Seeing how as many people told you to jump off a bridge as go for it, there is the value of the poll right there.
Hell, if you are at a school where Profs don't give C's, just show up and sleep for the next 3 years and then have someone shake you awake long enought to sit BarBri. Who cares?
