Title: 3.35 and 156 lsat got accepted to HARVARD!!!
Post by: thediesel on July 14, 2004, 02:44:49 PM
you heard right.  I am not even a URM.  I originally just did it as a joke, got waitlisted, and now I'm in.  I don't know if they made a mistake, or what, but I don't care. ;D

let me ask you this.  if you somehow got in a school you knew had made a mistake, with thousands of people on this board who would love to take your spot, would you post your acceptance letter and reveal your identity.  i may not be smart, but i'm not stupid

just photoshop out your name and any ID number, put a big black box over it, i don't care to see your name or anything about you.  Just the letter :-D  You can't blame us for being skeptical

Say he does post his letter, that doesn't prove that's actually his GPA and LSAT score.

are you legally blonde?  what the phuk?  what's URM? oh, you mean black or hispanic.  i was going to say better watch out for all the brainiacs and geeks you're gonna compete against,
but harvard doesn't fail anyone.

sweetness.  your sense  of humor will now make your future brighter.  go rent 'soul man' with c. thomas howell. it's old, but about harvard, and funny. 

don't be telling anyone else.  some jealous freak will try to report you or something and have the ad com re-review you. 

you know what i always say @#!* the system"

If you really did get into Harvard with those numbers (and I don't think you did) you are going to get smacked pretty hard by the competition when you get there.  I know kids at Harvard Law (I live in Cambridge).  The first year is very very tough, even for people with 3.9s from Harvard College and LSATs in the 170+ range.

hey newcastle,

maybe you should have spent your $$ on more beer instead of giving it to lsac.  i thought 4 times for me was alot.  wow. but great scores.  they probably improved as you drank more beer.


too bad you got beat out by Mr. 156, at least that's what he claims.  i dont know why someone would waste time and lie, unless he's delusional.

Screen shot of LSAC application and letter of acceptance would work as proof.  Just black out your info.

Good luck if this is not BS.

Uhhh, those are actually practice scores on preptests that I have taken.  I will be taking the real test for the first time in October.

For all the skeptics out there, I could believe that a 154 and 3.36 is good enough for Harvard, albeit rare. I personally know someone who is a HLS grad and that person was accepted with a 154 (but GPA was higher, like around a 4.0). With that said, my personal take it that Harvard knows it's going to have the 179s and 180's applying there, so their numbers won't be too terribly skewed if they allow in one or two low low scores. Props regardless.

 I believe that schools check and see if you are the relative of an alumni AND also see how much money your family makes AND how much money they donate in addition to measuring your scholastic potential. I'd be suprised if diesel doesn't have some kind of connection at the university, or had pops make a donation.  :o

According to the law school admission index calculator (http://www.chiashu.com/lsat.html), our friend here has a 2.3648246171671804E-4 chance of getting into Harvard Law School.  That is equivalent to 0.000236 chance, or less than .1% chance (he also has the lowest chance of getting into Harvard than any other school, according to this site).

Actually though it is very rare I can believe he got into Harvard. A friend of mines best friend got into Yale with a 160 and 3.6 Gpa just because her dad went there for undergrad.

Thank you thinkn.  And to think, it only took you future supreme court justices and corporate law behemoths to unmask this obvious fraud.  Take my advice, when you become lawyers PAY SOMEONE TO DO YOUR INVESTIGATING.
