I suppose I've hit a nerve.

You haven't hit a nerve; we just think you're being a bit arrogant.

And thickheaded.  You got the advice you wanted, but instead chose not to listen to it so no one wants to bother giving you any more advice.

This is what I always find most amazing.

< Has a very high LSAT for his school and will definitely not be letting it get anywhere near his resume.

Camden, but really, neither. Both are in NJ.

Speaking of Rutgers Camden... they actually allow some people to get in by submitting GRE scores... crazy isn't it?

Just what you'd expect from a shithole in NJ, that's all.

Actually I respected them a lot for trying to reform the law school admissions process. They actually invited me to apply--which equals guaranteed acceptance I assume--because I got a really high GRE score, and they wanted to see if people with really GRE scores could do equally as well as students with high LSAT scores. I never took up their offer just because it was late in the season I was already accepted elsewhere. But give them some credit for trying to change the admissions process. How much bull is it when the LSAT counts more than your GPA, i.e. a 5 hour test is more indicative of your ability than 4 years of college?? Furthermore, the LSAT doesn't really mean anything in terms of predicting how well you will do during 1L--even though LSAC swears it does. Tons of 2Ls and 3Ls have reaffirmed this notion.

Huh I guess I will trust the anecdotal evidence from 2l and 3ls instead of statistical correlation between LSAT score and firs tyear grades.....

And frankly it isnt bull at all that a better predictor counts more heavily.... in fact some might say that even makes sense...

It does make sense that schools will look more at what should be the better indicator. I think what gets most people is how much more they look at the better indicator.

If I remember right, the statistical correlation to first year grades that LSAC cites is .4 for the LSAT and .25 for UGPA, so neither is very strong and they're not that far apart.

Still, it never ceases to amaze me that you can functionally cancel out 4-5 years of being a fuckup in college with a 170+ LSAT.

So much hate...

Just the truth.

Not sure I agree.  I smell bitterness.  Then again, at least you're not one of those winners still talking about where they did and didn't get into, so you can't be all that bitter.

I find Hornbooks to be a rather large waste of time.  I think casebook + E&E is more practical and more useful.

Joking?  Wash U.  :D

Indiana or Michigan State?

I also plan on outlining during the weekend, but we'll see.  I'm definitely going to have more time because I don't plan to read the casebook all that often.

Why aren't you going to read the casebook? I'm going to forego the supplemental myself. I thought the supplementals had way better information, then I realized I just wasn't reading the "notes" in-between the cases carefully enough.

That's another thing I'm going to do next semester: skim through the cases, pay more attention to the notes.

Agreed 100%, the notes following the cases in our books were excellent sources of information.  Some of the supplementals were still useful for big-picture type stuff, but the notes were legit.
