But yes I understand "Special snowflake" etc. Yes I know most people aren't in the top third, that's the nature of what a third is .
Stop looking for some kind of confirmation/affirmation of a decision you want to make. You're not going to get it here.
Not an affirmation, obviously I've seen the way you guys think and write on here so would be very dumb to expect that from any of you haha. I was just adding that piece of evidence to shed some light on the fact that you're not really talking marginal and lottery tickets, you're talking 1 out of 3. I don't believe in being overly positive, but I also don't believe in overt negativity, and I wasn't the one who started bringing up "don't go to Fordham if you want to do big law," etc. I was just trying to ask a simple question but got caught up in some people bringing up new arguments and I'm just trying to share what I know. I'm really not trying to get you to get you to affirm anything, just my argumentative nature I guess.
