Law School Applications / Re: does late waitlist=early admit?
« on: May 05, 2009, 01:47:26 PM »
Thanks for the replies, all.

I did ok on the test, so probably wouldnt improve that much, and probably won't bother. Guess i'm'a skip it this year, and try again. _really_ want that preferred school.


You have five months to prepare for October! Go for it. Work hard. You can do it. Sometimes it's enough to show the adcoms that you are trying to improve and that you really want to go. Think long and hard about waiting b/c you're still "warm" right now. It might be easier for you to improve your LSAT score now than after you've taken a year off. On the other hand, LSAC does have that three-in-two rule, so you don't want to use up your eligibility. Think it over. But consider that five months is enough time for a 10-15 point jump. People have done it.

Sounds about right, though you left out the part where you make fun of me for being T4-bound.

Oh yeah...and that...lol.

You know good and well that I am right. You are deep in flame territory, b/c you are saying essentially what I am saying. Ask anyone what a 2.9 GPA means for someone's admission, and they will ask, "Can you get it up to 3.0?" That's the first thing anyone thinks. You are str8 flamin'.

I don't even remember what we were arguing at this point.

We argue about the same thing all the time, in one way or another. I offer some type of info as fact (in a post), you "show up out of nowhere" and attempt to refute it as being speculation. I assert my point, you assert yours, often questioning my logical reasoning, research and credibility, and then I return the favor. After a short time, it turns somewhat personal; we throw a few off-topic daggers and the whole thing is over until we find a new post to disagree on. I like it. lol.

Do you have arrogant paragraph structure?

Good question.

Wow.  The web page you created matches the persona you created.  A true feat.

Honestly, I believe that you got into these schools and I don't know why anyone would question you.  That said, you are incredibly arrogant and I hope you leave some of this defensive anger behind when you head to law school.  It's already a competitive enough environment as it is without folks setting themselves up for abuse.

I know I can come off as "arrogant", so I will own up to that one. But the anger part? No. Let's be fair. 

BTW bl825, it seems that at least one other URM matches me in numbers (actually a significantly lower GPA) and admits. Not much different from me: In at Columbia, UVA, Northwestern, UCLA, USC, Fordham, Illinois, GWU and Duke. Waitlisted at Harvard, Yale and Chicago, and waitlisted then rejected at Berkeley and Stanford. Rejected outright at Michigan and NYU (NYU still averages LSAT's, so that's probably why). Still waiting on Penn and GULC. Gee, whadayaknow? Does CLS with a 3.58 GPA still look impossible?  ;)

Sure.

You know what I think? YOU ARE JUST JEALOUS b/c you are going to Cal Western or somewhere like that.

Now you're yelling at me for agreeing with you.

No, just getting even for below...that stuff about credited answer...look at the minority threads and see who has gotten into T14's.

Oh don't be so sensitive.  If it makes you feel any better, I'm skeptical about EVERYTHING you say, not just school-related stuff.  ;)

And if it makes you feel any better, I don't really think you will be at Cooley. Maybe Santa Clara or somewhere. I honestly do not care. It doesn't matter b/c I don't lose anything either way. I hid my schools on LSN b/c everyone found out that Yale waitlisted me and I was getting a ton of e-mails. That's why you couldn't view my schools. Plus, I never go to the site and I don't want to have to edit all the time. But if I crack it open right now, you will see that it matches everything I have been telling you guys for months.

Truth is truth.  How profound.

Why not just show us the data that you have, and how it supports your statement about how there are thresholds with grades?  A reminder, you said the following:

There are threshholds in grades. The first is 2.5, then there's 3.0, 3.2 (that's a really important one b/c is a B+ average on a 4.0 scale) and then there's 3.5 and 4.0, of course.

So show us how the data supports that rather than the simpler explanation that the higher the GPA, the better the chances of admissions.  Remember, to demonstrate a threshold, you need to show that someone just above a threshold is significantly better off than a person just below it.

Remember: I'm not disagreeing with you, I'm just pointing out that you're reading more into your data than is warranted.  Unless of course you have more than I suspect.  Go ahead, show us.  :)

He's bugged out b/c I laughed at some stupid joke about a gangbanger. I pointed out to him that if I was out of line, so are Chris Rock and every other black comedian who jokes about gangbangers. And I offered my support to the guy. So dude just looks stupid all around.
