Isn't it just so annoying to see so many well-qualified applicants being screwed over by Harvard? It is official, Harvard's arrogance has reached new heights. After the President of the university found it necessary to insult the scientific and mathematical skills of women, now, its law school has found a new way in which to alienate applicants- through its treacherous deferral system. Harvard, what's wrong with you? After 3-4 months of reviewing applications, the best answer you can come up is "I don'know!" (deferral). For goodness sake, what did you do in the last 3-4 months? Sleep over the applications??? I have wondered why so many Harvard law students decribe their law experience as unpleasant and depressing. Now, I know. Because Harvard radiates arrogant snobbism. It is not easy to deal with that kind of stuff on a daily basis.
You know what will be really cool? Imagine if all of the deffered candidates withdrew their applications; a mass boycot of Harvard, so to speak; the revenge of the powerless:) So, hypothetically, if all of the deferred applciants withdrew, Harvard will be stuck with admitting candidates with LSAT scores that are way below their averages. Doesn't it sound great? Imagine the surprise of teh admission officers when they discover that their Median LSAT has fallen to 165:) As a result, the US News bumps Harvard out of the top 10. Sweet dreams:) Of course, this is just a hypothetical. After all, although we hate Harvard for being arrogant snobs, most of us want to be part of their elitary snobbism. That's why, we will not withdraw. That's why we will let them play their arrogant, sneaky deferral game.
