I dunno, it looks to me like you well outperformed your PT's. Congrats on doing so well.

If you think you could prep better than last time, then maybe, but otherwise it doesn't seem like a good idea.

No one can answer this for you. 12-16 are good schools, but if you think u can do better, and u want to wait two years, then do it. We have no idea what you'll be doing for those years, and don't know what your gpa is or anything, so we don't know ur chances at a better school. Maybe be more specific about that and u could get better advice. Maybe.

It depends which school you're talking about. If its one of DNC or G, an argument can be made much easier than a place like Texas.

If you don't have a concrete reason for going now, I'd say it's fine to wait two years. You can get some work experience and maybe even take on a couple interesting projects--some long term volunteering, exploring different career field to be sure of your choice to practice law, etc.

Sticker at any school is going to cost you about $150,000, and that's not debt that should be taken on lightly.

That's what I assumed. And I wouldn't pay sticker for UCLA or Texas. I think of any vandy would be the most reasonable, but still too much.

What do you mean out yourself? Why would we care what schools you got into or what your gpa is? Seriously I don't get it, have you read these boards? This information is rampant AND necessary for good advice.
Or do you mean out yourself as in this is an alt account? In which case the most suspicious thing is you worried about outing yourself, and mods can see two accounts are linked to your ip anyway.

Since you arent Baylor c/o 2015, your class mates cant match you to your numbers. Whatever floats your boat though.

Do you have any reason to believe you can hit 170? You know yourself better than we do. You know how hard you pushed for your 167, how much material you exhausted and whether you had any indication that you were close to a PT breakthrough.

Your employment chances get statistically better the farther up the T14 you go. It's already a buyer's market for people with good credentials. Law schools are feeling the pain, and there's no end in sight. I'd wait it out.

You outperformed your scores on test day. You got into a T14 school. I would chill for a year, gain a year of valuable WE and head to the T14

What if my work experience isn't meaningful?

I want to travel and have adventures, maybe work at a ski resort or travel the country living out of my car.

Does travelling across Europe with just a backpack make me not a flame because that would be a dream of mine too.

Depends on where you go.
