S/he probably just doesn't understand law school and doesn't like his/her neighbor. S/he also mentioned her parents pay $2000 rent- the only relevance is to show a contempt.  Of course, I thought 2k rent, Jesus, rich people problems.

Of course the crank possibility is always present though.

Without knowing her grades or GPA there really is no way to answer this.  Law school is a different beast than grad school- don't compare the two.  For some reason both law and med schools make grading, work load and classes much harder and stressful than other graduate programs. Only a top percentage get above a 3.0 versus grad school where 3.0 is the minimum- non law people do not often understand that.

If below a 2.0, then normally the student goes on academic probation.  There is an evaluation and committee review. Probably, if she can't get her GPA up over the summer she will either be disqualified or put on probation (depending what her GPA is).

How can you be so heartless and selfish.  You really can't bring your self to feel for her, exhibit some level of sympathy even if she interrupts your sleep every now and again?  I mean damn man, you ain't got no love. Do you? 

What's going on in her head is likely something along the lines- "My dreams are dying, I'm such a loser. What is wrong with me? I hate myself.  If I fail, my life is over. Everyone will hate me. WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME!!!!!!!".  If I were you I would be more worried about her trying to kill herself should she get kicked out- the blood will stain your ceiling and floor. Unless of course YOU get lucky and she kills herself with poison. 

I looked it up for you. Page 92. It is, of course, intentionally vague so the committee has more case control.

Haven't heard much about Dean, couldn't really hang in.  Last I heard he was DNC chair a few years back. I never even got to know his politics too well, that scream ended him quick. Wasn't very marvelous.

OP, did you get off a wl yet? Fingers crossed with Penn :).

Depends on the school. Look up the academic standards dumb.ass- and you think she should fail. Unempathizing piece of shi.t.  Help her. If its you, I hope someone helps you. If its not, f. you- heartless fool.

If you want to end up in NYC, then Fordham is your best choice.  GW probably doesn't have a market in NY.

Out side of the T14 I'd focus on region first, then price, then rank.

Goats filled with seamen from Star Wars? Too far, even for me.

Give up the numbering paradigm please. I used it once and admitted its a douch.y approach. So, it now become your primary approach? Typical.

I didn't bother reading trough all of that. Too much effort for something so foolish.  You called me a troll? Wow. Yes indeed- I'm a troll. I have no debt. Congrats to me.

Probability or statistics have nothing to do with your assumptions.  As with the numbering paradigm- my approach, not yours.

Apologies Op for wasting so much of your thread arguing with this fool.  I hope you heard back from CUNY and it was good news. :).

Dooood. I have never seen such an example of speculation and assumption being mistaken for cleverness. I'll do the same thing- typical tea party induction.  Inducing huge conclusions from minute irrelevant or even exception data. You base a conclusion on outliers.  Or worse, generalizations that can't include all the data.

Not everything in such an important decision as which law school to go is always based on linear rankings exclusively, and should not be.  You do not know which schools rejected him.  I saw a person apply to Harvard with a 148.  She applied to a few T1s, a few T2s and a few T4s.

If anything he infers he has not heard back from CUNY. 

CUNY is a different kind of school. It is outside the rankings. What I mean by that is the school admits people with 140s LSAT and can reject a person with a 160. They think differently than most schools.

Ah the student loan bubble.  That's why you try to discourage people from law school. You don't want to help the OP. You want him/her swept aside as to not be part of the problem. 

You're posting here to stop people from going to law school. Wow. Not selfish at all. Not apathetic. Not lame or weak, but practical, ehe?

What an selfish dic.k.
