I stated that you shouldn't discourage tier 2 law schools. You are clarifying tier 1 as the first 25 schools and are not following the actual tiers. If you get a good LSAT and have a good GPA, you may actually have a better shot at a scholarship at a tier 2 school or low-end tier 1. There are PLENTY of schools that you can go to for less than $75,000 for your entire J.D. and too many people are focused on "If I don't go to a top 14 law school, I won't be a good lawyer!" That's crap and clearly misleading. As I stated above several posts ago, I know several lawyers who have gone to a tier 2 law school and who have gone to a tier 1 and have the SAME job, same pay, and the tier 1 typically have the higher loan amounts. And you can also lower your costs by establishing residency in the state that you are going to go to (if you can) and not overextending yourself. You are saying that you should never go to 51+ without a full scholarship, when in reality, they may be more affordable with some scholarship over a lower ranked school that you could lose your scholarship at because you are competing with top students from all around the country.
So you've just outed yourself as terrible at making logical inferences - not someone I would trust on LSAT related questions, since you know, that's one of the most basic skills the LSAT tests against. Anecdotal correlation does not equal causation. In fact, your argument doesn't even prove that either of those TT or T1 people have *good* outcomes, just you're saying that some from both groups end up in the same bucket (the trash bucket).
Words to anyone looking on this site for advice: Don't take advice from anyone who tries to tie themselves to Elle Woods.
I don't need you to trust me on LSAT questions, but I appreciate the input! But thank you for being super rude on a post that we are have a discussion, not attacking one another.
Truth hurts kiddo. And I definitely wouldn't trust you on LSAT questions. Or anything else. T2 is trash. Don't go (unless you've got a full ride and are okay with small firm life).
If you want to give bad advice and get encouraged for doing so, r/LSAT is on reddit.
Damn, right between the ribs.
