Or, think about people who never got into law school but became stars in another field.

Are you a splitter? NorthwesTTTern has been putting most of them on hold. So don't be discouraged.

Where are you in so far?

i joined the flame bus against boalTTT and it felt better especially since the things against them were true such as their students being subpar in terms of academic potential and boalt's reputation being a complete joke

Fixed.

OP, move on with your life. Stop wasting precious energy worrying about things that don't matter.

Personally I don't care about the schools that rejected me enough to remember to hate them in the future. Even if I did, would it matter? If I became a billionnaire after law school, and said, "Screw it Duke, you're not getting any of my money," what are they going to do? Shut their doors and cease operations out of sorrow? No, they're going to continue to suck as only Dook can. So move on. Humor + perspective = a fine life.

Actually it's humor + perspective + health + Dewar's + the love of a massively attractive Brazilian woman, but don't lose track of the larger point.
