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

get people workout programs to get their ideal body and refer them to a therapist so they have like basic emotional self awareness

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
interesting! Idk why I thought it'd lowkey count against me.tysm
