Oh, I'm waitlisted at SMU, Houston, Wake Forest, Texas Tech, Tulane (no response, just assumed), and Bama (pending final committee decision).
Waitlisted at Illinois, American & Pitt. Proceeding forward with UK but in the event that one of those 3 actually admit me, I'm not sure what ill end up doing. In the grand scheme of debt, UK would be significantly lower than all of those with the current arrangement I have in place. But obviously rank & academic wise those institutions are higher / better quality.[/quote]
Eh. Under no circumstances should you go to American. Their employment statistics are god awful. I have no idea why they are ranked so high and have some "prestige" to their name.

But your other options aren't too bad, depending on what you want out of your JD and how much scholarship you receive. Where do you have ties to? Before VTech where did you live and where do you work now?
It'll take a lot from the schools I'm waitlisted at to move me from Kentucky. I like living in the south, and the idea of a small class sounds better to me (although I can imagine it getting quite cliquey).
