Daniel’s advice for law school applicants:

Ranking and numbers aren’t everything. Each applicant should look past their scores and where a school is ranked, remembering that every applicant brings something unique to the table—as does every law school. Some schools that seem out of reach may admit a candidate with a lower LSAT score or GPA because they like the unique experiences that the applicant brings to the table. Similarly, when trying to decide between schools, candidates need to remember that a lower ranked school may be a better fit for many reasons, such as the applicant’s interest in a specific area of the law.
