It got me WLed everywhere, but in nowhere, and even then it might just be because those schools thought my TFA-based PS was well-written. It's nothing like a Rhodes or curing AIDS or anything else. Thousands of people leave TFA every year, and like 20% of them apply to law school. It isn't special. At all.

Anyone who spends 2 years in TFA for any reason other than wanting to work with kids is either masochistic or stupid.
I agree, for the most part. I got into good schools because I had a good LSAT score, not because of TFA.

That being said, I got fee waivers at (almost) everywhere, and I got much more money in scholarships than I think I would have gotten without it. I don't know where that places on The Soft Continuum, but I think it matters more than most?
I will agree on fee waivers. I basically didn't pay a single application fee because of TFA.
