This PS needs a lot more substance. It's just a lot of words and I'm not sure what I was supposed to get out of it. It's not poorly written, but it doesn't necessarily distinguish yourself in any way. For instance, you spent a ton of space just to communicate that you had a single mom who wanted you to challenge yourself. I would scrap this ps entirely. In my opinion, I would think hard about what exactly is it that makes you different from everyone else? What insight, event, or... And make sure that it's relevant to the skills which are necessary for being a law student. Think critically about your wrestling and what this taught you... Or I dunno, but you don't want to paint a pretty picture - you want to get right to and almost exclusively express the main point at all times.

You know what'd actually be interesting... If other TTT's started to game the Cooley rankings. Only Cooley receives mockery because they're the creators of this absurd calculus. But of course, no one blames Chicago-Kent for fairing well in it. So if you're Appalachian College of Law, why not buy a bunch of cheap chairs at the Dollar General? If you're successful, you'll end up on mailings which receive at the house of nearly every prospective law student.
I'm not trying to be rude, but you constantly claim to be misunderstood or state that others are missing the point. For someone who only has 16 total posts, the frequency of all the misunderstandings suggests that there's a real issue in your clarity and ability to express ideas. I'm not arguing your major point or any of your points, however, I think it's important to mention that if people are consistently having problems following your logic - it's not them.
No! I am NOT saying that....
How did you guys do on the reading comp portion of the LSAT? I'm guessing not too well. I am being severely misquoted here.
You missed the entire point of my post. What I was saying was that...

Playing the waiting game, as painful as it's become.

I'm still around and kicking. I'm waiting for the holidays to end because I remember January as the month when most decisions come out for those of us who are not an autoadmit anywhere yet applied fairly early.

Take the LSAT again. You will not get in anywhere that you probably want. Wash U and the gay male thing will only help at the very slightest of margins. Overcoming that LSAT? Well, that's not a slight margin. Other people on this board have scored significantly lower than what they'd hoped due to stress/anxiety and then did much better on the retake. Maybe you won't do better on the next LSAT, but it's sort of a no-lose proposition.
