and yet you call someone a flame for it...... :-X

If you never have met someone who scored in the 130s, that's a problem on your end. Plenty of people score in the 130s and it's absolutely silly to think otherwise.

I'm not saying that people don't score in the 130s.  I've just never met such a person.  I'm not sure that's a problem on my end.  Rather, I think it speaks volumes about the type of people with whom I choose to associate.

YOU ARE AN IDIOT! (and here is why)

1)LOTS of people have IBS(its a real thing, not fairydust, its real)
2) If you havetoshit the whole exam, you are in the john/hall too much and get a low score OR have trouble thinking and not pooing.
(think hungover but in yourass)

3) He THOUGHT that he MIGHT get in the 130's(could be as high as a 139) and still just his paranoid guess.

4) LOTS of people get between a 130-139. Most of whom don't even have an excuse, they just end up in online lawschool instead.

5) Who gives a *&^% if you are stupid enough to give your real IP address away? I never doubted your were a clerk, hell that's like trying to get bragging rights for being the janitor.

BAWAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!!!(clerk :'( )HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!! ::)

Ok, so then what's your excuse for not knowing all said things if your so great then?

WTF are you talking about?  The OP posted that he thought he made a 130 on the LSAT because he had IBS.  I told him that he was flame - no one makes a 130 on the LSAT.  You quote me in post #10 and talk about how you're sorry that you offended my school - a post that was completely out of the blue.

I'm not sure what you don't understand about my posts or what your problem is.  But, I do hope that you improve your reading comprehension skills prior to law school.  As an aside, I've already proven in my past posts that I am, in fact, a federal district court clerk.  One of the mods verified my IP address as one belonging to courts in a particular circuit.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Thoughts on February's LSAT? Should I cancel?
« on: February 16, 2011, 01:40:30 PM »
I'd only cancel if you honestly think you did worse than before.

Remember, a lot of lawschools go with the higher of the two anyways. Do you know what the policy is at the schools you want to attend?
I'd check that first. If they go with the highest, then I wouldn't cancel regardless.

Choosing the Right Law School / Re: Is Cooley with $$ really that bad?
« on: February 16, 2011, 01:04:16 PM »
You know, I'm not sure. I have heard about the "attrition" rate at lower T schools being in part due to transfers, and a lot of people lie to themself and say "I'll be #1 in there, I'll be able to transfer" but in reality only the top 10% transfer and regardless of which lawschool you go to you will notice that even after grades come out 90% of the class will claim to be that top 10%. You will be able to see how many A's,B's,etc your teacher gave and even if the sheet only shows 3 A's and 100 B's, 90 people will claim to be those A's.
Why? Because they are fill of *&^%,and probably mildly scitsophrenic.  :P

As far as the cons of transfering, I'm told that it impacts your cumulative GPA since the credits transfer as credit and not as a GPA. So the A's you get to qualify to transfer disappear and if you (got forbid) get one C- that first term after transfering you on AP instead of just a 3.9 like you would have with the old grades. Plus I'm told it's harder to get into lawreview, but I think moot court still let's transfer in. I've noticed the jocks from undergrad end up in mootcourt and the chessclub ends up in lawreview. You want to have a beer with the first and give a wedgie to the latter.
Just my opinion. ;)

If you want to get a free ride, go for it. Just don't do it ONLY to transfer. Nothing wrong with transfering either, just don't let if be your ONLY reason.

Good to know, thanks! How often do people go to Cooley only to transfer after their first year? I heard that transferring isn't always a good thing?

Dude, are you smart enough to notice this is NOT the guy who opened the thread? Good luck on your finals, if you can't even keep track of something that simple.

As for the illness, if the OP has it he should ask for extratime due to it. They grant it for ADHD and other illnesses(many I suspect are just made up by lazy Aholes who read the list of symptoms while smoking pot instead of studying)

My finals?  I've already graduated.  I'm a Fed. district court clerk.

In reality nothing. People just don't like that they are the new kid on the block and still the largest lawschool in the nation. That plus they have a high attrition rate(but about half that of  whittier and lowert than many others)

Thanks for the tip! I'm still deciding if I want to go to Cooley, and if I do I will definitely take your advice. I just wanted to get feedback as to how Cooley with that much tuition money can be so bad compared to other MI schools like Wayne and State.

What makes Cooley so bad anyway?

 ???

to a point,  but it's still more about cumulative GPA.If one guy has an "upward trend" and lower GPA, he will not have as good of a shot as someone with a  "downward trend" and a higher cumulative gpa.

That being said, Aceing a few extra classes always helps overall too.

What do your junior and senior year grades look like?  Admissions committees look for an upward trend.  It will also be very important that any letters of recommendation you get (yes you will need them for applications) are from professors who are familiar with your work.  If your lsat comes in below 160, take a prep course and get it above 160.  Visit the law school information site. If you can get into the 160's and a couple of professor LOR's you can get into a school.  Not going to be T14.

Law School Admissions / Re: Report Not Requested
« on: February 15, 2011, 07:04:49 PM »
school admission offices are a busy place. You can email them if you want. I wouldn't mention the 2weeks thing(might seem obsessive) but you can ask if they've recieved it yet. If you are polite about it you should get a polite responce.

That being said, I wouldn't sweat it too much yet. It hasn't really been that long yet.

That cumulative GPA is a pain and gets people. I wouldn't give up just yet though.

Wait for your LSAT. Heck, who knows perhaps you got a 180! If you that GPA will be just fine.  :)

Black Law Students / Re: February LSAT Takers?

don't feed the trolls.  :-X

Don't worry about the LSAT. It's just the first of many exams you'll have the pleasure of taking during tenure as  a lawstudent.
Remember, the majority do just fine on it, and half of those A-holes didn't even study and showed up hung over from the night before.
If you get enough rest and study, you'll do at least as good as they did.  ;)

Why do you say that?
