Julie Fern, or Fulie Jern, which ever name you are going by at this moment, please enlighten us and tell us what your "ideal" America would be. What do you want to see, specifically? What would make you happy, or at least less hateful and intolerant?

I'm going to take a guess and say big government, no war, no religion, more social programs, less work with more pay, more labor unions, and, of course, world peace.

If you have more to add, please do so.


regulating procreation, DNA profiling, more tax serve both wings just different reasoning, different title. Fulie also hate idiots who try avoid reductionist nonsense, explain political position to Julie/Metsfan, no use

Hmmmm.... regulating procreation as in Eugenics, Carrie Buck style? I remember Hitler liked that idea too.


Also had better sense of humor.

Are you sure it was a joke? In every joke lies a bit of truth. After all, you chose to  use that specifically in your clever retort.

Anyway, I just wanted to see if you were nonsense or substance... I got my answer. Thanks for playing.

Game over? Population control inevitable. Be smart about it when gets here. Hitler racist, global mandates "fair."

Yes, I'm sorry, the game is over. I'm going back to living life, which I don't want to waste by trying to catch your incomprehensible 22,000 posts of ad hominem attacks and unsubstantiated views - that must be an LSD record!

BTW, I think the right wing is feeling good because the left wing is doing a great job dragging out the primaries and destorying itself from within.

I knew it was crap - a last act of desperation. Yeah, I read Ivey's book too, I should have just stuck to her advice. Oh well, it was yet another writing exercise.

Thanks Pink Cosmo.

Sorry I had to be honest :(

I totally get where you're coming from and I believe in addendums for the right reasons, but I really think Ivey got this one right on.

I'm glad you were honest, I wasn't looking for sugar coating. It's good that I got straightened out before making a dumb mistake.
I guess I'll just have to do what I can in 1L (if I get in anywhere) and then try to transfer to a school I really want to go to. Such is life, hindsight is 20/20.

Thanks Gooner, your advice is duely noted.

I agree, the best LSAT addendum is a retake. Unfortunately I couldn't retake it in Sept or December, and by the Feb test I figured it was too late, not to mention that my advisors said don't bother. It may end up coming to that because as of now I still don't have a solid acceptance, just 2 waitlists. I hope I don't have to wait another year.

I guess I don't have much to lose at this point, especially if you're right about it being better to hear from schools sooner than later.

Thanks for your help.

Hmmm the most important thing is -- what does your addendum say?

It more or less describes the circumstances involved in getting a score that ended up being no different from my first practice score, eventhough I gained a lot of points through studying and practicing: maxed courseload in the summer session, midterms at the same time as lsat, etc. Nothing too unusual or extenuating, but I say how I treat it as significant in my "careful" evaluation of myself as a candidate of X Law School, and although my score may not show it, I am suited for the school. I talk about how I don't underestimate the value of the LSAT as a predictor of law school success, but my result doesn't adequately reflect my potential.

It sort of goes on like that. It's less than a full page. I don't want to be too whiney but i want to get the point across, and also show that i really will do well at school X despite what their numerical indicators might say.

Yeah, this is just a short "cover letter" to put in the body of the email, but I would attach the addendum
