What they said ^

Also I know that you feel like those supporting facts matter but they don't. Your numbers will get you what they will get you and that's that.

Dre is blunt, but he's right that its not a huge boost in admissions. HOWEVER, it will mean a sizeable amount to employers once you get to law school. You will stand out very strongly at OCI with your credentials whatever school you attend. Don't discount this.

Your GPA/LSAT are in range for a bunch of T14 schools. Don't worry. My question would be, why do you want to be a lawyer? if you have a CPA and a job at a top firm, why leave for law school? you are probably losing $200K in income over 3 years and will come out making not significantly more than you would getting a promotion from your current position (which would happen here). Only go to law school if you really want to practice law and become an attorney; otherwise its not worth it here.
