I see bigs viewpoint and agree with it. MY friend who is black got a 165 on her LSAT and GPA was 3.7. I just believe their are minorities who can handle pressure and those who cannot. Just like white people.

Don't worry, we won't be going to the same law school.

 You'd be amazed how a jump in intellect would have served you if it weren't for your television and all of its b.s. propagating your mind with a bunch of inane nonsense. Think about it, you are basically watching a box in color with humans interacting with other humans playing dress up. That couldn't be more stupid than it already is. Why the hell watch 3 to more humans play fairy tale land in costumes? It is STUPID. I'd rather read Dostoevsky and listen to Mahler.

If you got a 155 on a logical reasoning test, then no, you would not ace every single class in physics at Carleton unless you understood the concepts. I understand the philosophical concepts of law, therefore would ace classes at the top schools of law. You do not have a great scientific background, and from what I am assuming, you aren't good at math, so you will probably do well in the very basics of biology, whereas the advanced courses in science, you would perform less that average.

I know for a fact some students at Harvard did nothing close to what I have done and merely got good grades and a great score on the LSAT. They still got in with just that. I am doing the things I have listed because I have many interests and wish to apply them all to the law. It also differentiates me from other students. I couldn't care less about what you have accomplished.

At least I had parents who weren't constantly on drugs...

To the contrary, my points are relevant.

First what does higher processing mean? Second according to who do math/physics majors do better on the LSAT? 

Also don't you go to a liberal arts college, since you are so technically inclined and allegedly brilliant why did you not go to MIT or something? 

I think the basketball/football player is right on both are professional athletes who are tall, can bench press a lot of weight, run fast, catch well, have a competitive edge etc.  Or simply they both require athletic "higher processing" as look to call it and being good one does not make you good at the other. Even with those similar characteristics.

Maybe you will do great in law school, but I hope for the sake of everybody you get humbled, but the results will be what they are and if you get a 180 on your LSAT and get the Witkin award in every class then what can be said you would be pretty damn smart when it comes to legal education. If you do all that and eventually become a Supreme Court Judge then nobody can say anything to you your connections, experience, whatever got you there worked, but as of now you are talking out of your ass you have not done anything not even the most basic step, which is taking the LSAT. Get a 180 and on it and tell the world if you want, but nobody in law school will want to hear or care how will you did on the LSAT so I would recommend keeping it to yourself. Being humble is a quality that people respect and you obviously have not learned that lesson.

Higher processing is how well you do with logic, reason, how quick you are when it comes to computing numbers, how well you think under pressure, etc... All humans use it, but other humans use it to an even greater extent than the average.

I, although not like on here, have always gloated about my accomplishments and scores on exams and grades. Apart from being on the swim and softball team where I am extremely competitive, I am also competitive when it comes to grades. I make it known if I did well on an exam or if my GPA is higher than other students. Academia like sports, is better for everyone if it is treated like a sport. Humbleness is the crux of weakness to me.

You're applying completely irrelevant cases to this. A football player requires a different form of bodily movement than a basketball player. Law and science requires two similar forms of thought which are basically, "higher processing." Law requires you to think more philosophically whereas science requires you to not only think philosophically but also on several different planes. That way you can generate new ideas, keep your own, but also follow the rules of logical reasoning. Law is similar in that aspect but it is not as mentally taxing.

Why the hell do you think a math/physics majors do the best when it comes to the LSAT? They are much more mentally inclined to think outside the box and follow the rules of logical reasoning and games than a person who is not.

^ Carleton, the school I attend currently. By the way, I will be taking the LSAT this fall and I bet I will score higher than your measly 155.

The way I think and write and me not being paid to do anything is completely irrelevant to what I will do once I am in the employment field. Right now, I speak and write in two different manners. Here, I am more informal and now more hostile, when I am writing basic 6 page essays and the like, I am much more formal and less hostile. I think I will get further as my intelligence is above that of 140 which is already high enough. Most kids in law school are just gifted students.

Take it from someone who knows what he is talking about. My parents never had a TV in our house and I was never allowed to watch TV, just read books, study, and sports. That is all, no TV. When I did start watching TV when I was 15, for the first time mind you, I said it was stupid. I still don't watch TV and my parents don't own a TV in their house because it diminishes intellectual creativity.

You end up like obst and bigs from watch TV. Culturally and intellectually remedial.

I currently attend Carleton which is a tier 1 and ranked 8th in all the Midwestern colleges. It is very hard to get into Carleton though because they like to keep the college small and keeps its prestigious image. Not only that, Carleton believes its a college that fosters and creates more students valuable to society than any other college. The curriculum and competition is rough. Mainly due to most students being above average IQ and going to prep school, some from public schools, the competition is rough. You have to be at a 3.3 to just be the average student. Students with a 3.8 and above get on the deans list and are considered near the top percentile, but the top percentile are those with a 3.9 and 4.0.

I criticize him for not applying logic to his post which is within my right to do so as an American and a person who would like people to uphold logic as well. You certainly need to do just that.

What would you consider a job? I have done volunteer work in the legal field that I did not get paid for and did not want to get paid for. I did some inner city tutoring when I was 18, helping high school students get a better grade in math and science. But, in terms of actually holding a paid job, no, I did not need to hold a job as I had money of my own that was given to me by my parents. No need to work a menial job when you are given more per week than what you would get working in a retail department. My volunteer work was much better anyway as I was helping people become better, and helping myself be more prepared for law. I still do volunteer work. In any case, I have never held a job that I was actually paid for and had a consistent salary.

I will be taking the LSAT in the fall to answer your last question. When I do get a high score, I will confirm it with a picture with me in it and possibly a video just to prove it. Pictures can be doctored, so a video will suffice.
