yeah i think so its kinda hard to tell sometimes just because i like, dont have a lot of people in my life who went to law school/practice law and those who did are like "went to NYU" or "was a lawyer in the ~old country~ and goes to a local school just because they need a US JD" and like both of those are people who provide valuable lessons it's just also hard to tell what actually aligns with my goals

this is a dumb question but does going to a school for undergrad heighten your chances of law school ?
23:34
@Error0305: Might be a slight boost (the law school will be very familiar with transcripts from the college, and probably a *little* kinder to them than other schools) but you'll also be one of a *lot* of applicants so it can cut both ways.
23:37
makes sense lol, I (un)fortunately went to the Ivy with the least grade inflation so that sounds like a perk somewhat
23:37
Most law schools have a healthy # of (University) undergrads because they get a lot of applicants from same
23:38
@Error0305: Yeah Cornell Law is the #1 destination for Cornell undergrads
23:39
