There are times when I've though to myself, "Damn, if only I hadn't spend so much time drinking / chasing (mediocre) girls / having fun in UG, I'd have a 180, 4.0," but then I realize that you only live once and I immediately don't regret it.
I'm sure, and nor do I regret the choices that I have made. I've always prioritized career / professional aspirations over anything in personal life; it's worked for me so far. It would be impossible for me to stop saying "what if?" to myself if I had made a choice that potentially undermined my work for personal matters. I've always measured myself by statistical achievements.
And V6, why exactly are you LOL'ing at me?
To each their own, you know? I am sure any school will love having another academically driven person. However, a top law school, to me, was not worth sacrificing my college years - certainly the most enjoyable years of my life thus far. With few exceptions, I think an amazing career without a budding personal life is nonsense. This is also the vibe I receive from Boalt and Dean Tom.
Congrats though, and perhaps we will someday be classmates
