Almost everyone- both the few people in the legal market and the tons of people outside it- I have talked with agree that it's an objectively bad decision to not attend law school next year if I don't get Stanford. Stanford is just perfect, though, and is a combination of the two schools I'm considering, Berkeley and Harvard. I also hit up the Harvard ASW and loved it, but I'm legitimately petrified of being stuck in New York with 200K of loans. I was just kinda toying with the idea of not going, but thanks for pulling me back down to earth. My application isn't likely to change much, especially not to the point where it'd be worth burning bridges. Hopefully we all get into Stanford and this is just a moot point.
Are we the same person?
