I didn't mean to come off that way, but it just seems that everything that I've done (or as you all refer to them - "softs") has very little to do with my admission prospects. As you can tell, I'm just starting to do in-depth research about the process, and it seems that my chances are a lot worse than I might have expected. So when I brought up GT, I simply meant that it's a school in D.C. where I'll still get great political networking and where I can easily get into... CCN are great, of course, and I might have a better shot there than at HY... but for personal and professional reasons I don't see myself moving to NYC and definitely not Chicago.


Hmm.. law school doesnt really work that way. Your "connections" would come from professors and classmates and internships. They would not be any worse from CCN than Gtown. You can intern in DC for the summer. You can extern fulltime in DC for a semester. Moving to DC for a law school with worse job prospects across the board (govnt, biglaw, public interest) just because it's in DC is not a good plan.

And I am always amused when prospective students ignore SLS, which sets students up as well if not slightly better than HLS for DC.

For real, talking about hls when you haven't taken a practice test is a bit nuts

Nope, I'm not trolling... just simply trying to get an answer to a question I asked. I got some very helpful answers and some not so much. Regardless, thanks everyone.
