It's a valid hijack.


Agreed. It's like somebody asking, "What's my chance of crossing this huge canyon with my motorcycle?" and then people saying, "uhhh... maybe you should not try?"* Not sure it's not so much hijacking so much as questioning an underlying premise. But good luck on the whole life-altering decision made without significant consideration thing!


*I love bad metaphors.

Yes, let's do some serious over-exaggerating instead.

Jumping across a canyon too much? You let me know what the appropriate amount to exaggerate is when you have a soul-crushing amount of debt with no desire to practice in a field that will allow you to expect to pay it off.

For the record I have never said that I don't have the desire to practice law... and the decision was anything but sudden.

Doesn't really change the job prospects though.

He would likely get into several T1s with a 3.7/163. Why bother w/ the T2s at that point?


Because the T1's OP would get into wouldn't be T14 or even probably top 25. So he'd probably be better off taking the $$$ than paying sticker at a 40-something school.
