Personal Statement / My Personal Statement
« on: October 17, 2012, 04:30:22 PM »
When I applied to USC Law in 2007, one place I got accepted, I wrote about how I was on welfare as a kid.  I mentioned the times when I searched for empty cans and bottles.  I even think I alluded to the time I searched in a garbage can and found a box of half-eaten pizza or when I found a cold Baby Ruth candy bar in a dumpster.  What a rags-to-riches story my life is!  Unless, of course, the absolute truth is we're all born rich.  In that case, I didn't forfeit my wealth.

Law School Rankings / NYU better than Cornell?
« on: October 17, 2012, 03:41:49 PM »
I haven't done a lot of research on the rankings, but it strikes me that NYU is ranked higher than Cornell.  If you ask me, NYU is USC on the east.  The conclusion I draw is that it doesn't really matter where you go at some point.  I am curious to find out where that point is.

Studying for the LSAT / Who scored perfect on the logic games section?
« on: October 17, 2012, 03:32:35 PM »
I have a feeling I am going to take the LSAT again and charge back into law school.  But when I took the LSAT years ago in 2005, I got a perfect score on the logic games section under times conditions.  You know what?  Unless the market changes, I might be able to make big money only on that claim to fame.  I got all the questions correct on the logic games section.  Period.  Did you?

I did.  I got a 166 and went to the University of Southern California Gould Law School, one of those top-twenty or so law schools.  And I didn't even graduate and I may never will!  But I can already make big money.  So, unless future data proves me wrong, I encourage others to follow in my foot steps.

General Board / What's the point?
« on: October 11, 2012, 05:16:43 PM »
What's the point of all this law stuff?  I mean, is it really about becoming a servant of the court or is it more about getting better at reading and writing for other things?  For example, I use the skills I have developed by going to law school for other things, like gaming.  By going to law school I have improved my reading and writing abilities, and I have improved my critical thinking and logical reasoning abilities.  And that comes in handy on www.gsn.com.

I registered a new LSAC account today.  I think I'm gonna retake the LSAT and go back to law school.

General board for soon-to-be 1Ls / Lawyer Making Products
« on: September 11, 2012, 04:56:41 PM »
When you purchase the LSAT and apply to law school are you buying extraneous "lawyer making products" too?  Because I did that in 2007 and now, 5 years later, it feels like I downloaded lawyer making software in my body.

LSAT horror stories / I cancelled my first LSAT
« on: September 11, 2012, 04:51:38 PM »
I took the LSAT twice in 2005.  The first time around I cancelled it.  I took it at Boston University.  The reason I cancelled it was, if I remember correctly, I heard a noise in the rafters and it distracted me.  I cancelled it afterwards, just in case.  Then I retook the LSAT in October 2005 in Stony Brook, Mass, and I scored a 166.  That's 93-94 percentile which means I did better than 93-94% of LSAT test takers.  That's like if everybody who uses LawSchoolDiscussion.org took the LSAT, then I scored better than 93-94% of people on LawSchoolDiscussion.org.

But what I want to know is what score I did get, or would have gotten, on my first LSAT.

General Off-Topic Board / I bought Barron's
« on: August 02, 2012, 01:00:24 PM »
Today I bought a book on real estate licensing exams by Barron's.  The book coast $18.99.  I bet I can convert it into millions of dollars.

General Off-Topic Board / Is Harvard the best college?
« on: July 24, 2012, 12:28:49 PM »
Correct me if I am wrong, but Harvard, for some reason, is at the top of the totem pole of society.  I am going to apply there.  Is it the best college in the world?
