In any case, I'll be back in June or July.

And I'm sorry, but did you say you were scoring in the 130's at one point?



This response goes out to both you and the person who posted the 149 thing.  As you may or may not know...and I'm guessing you don't, I didn't study for the LSAT.  That is why I got a 149.  I'm taking it again in June, and after only about 2..maybe 2 and a half weeks of prep, I'm already scoring from 160-164 on practice tests.  I didn't take the LSAT 5 times like some people who I guess were using the "blind squirrel finds the acorn" approach.

lol


If I don't get into any of the schools I applied to, then yeah, I'll go ahead and retake the LSAT.  I just think it's a shame, because I don't really believe the LSAT tests anything at all.


You're silly.

I don't believe it tests anything at all.  Nothing of value, anyway, only the ability to take that test.  I never denied that and I'm not doing it now.  But if you take it 5 times....and presumably you study for it every time, it says a hell of a lot if you can only go up 4 points from your first time to your fourth or fifth time.  At some point, it becomes a matter of learning from your mistakes, and that's not a really convincing case of somebody doing it.  That does speak to somebody's intelligence.


n00b, lesson #1:  when you get pwn3d, then STFU.



Now you're ready for the LSAT.  HTFH!



Alright, alright. You have to keep this within bounds.  If somebody takes the LSAT and only gets let's say...10 answers right, then that says something about them.

2. I posted my acceptance to Madison today, to also give SOME OF YOU HOPE that LSAT is not the ONLY way to a good school.  That I got bad numbers, but a hell of a personal statment and letters of recommendations....that GOD WILLING, they MUST HAVE LIKED!  And I think, if some of you read it, and knew about my life, maybe you'd give me a chance at law school too.


Very noble, but PLEASE tell us if you are a URM so you dont give false hope to others.  Thanks.

Well, that's a problem because the URM thing is not someting that is cut and dry like that.  For example, I'm Iranian.  And Iranian is considered WHITE.  But that's for most schools in the east.  In California, when I applied to Loyola, they had a box for me to check that said "Middle Eastern."   And then, for University of Hawaii, they didn't have a box for middle eastern but they had boxes for

Chinese, Japenese, Thai, Korean, Malaysian, Philipinos.....so for them, each one of Pacific Islander had a box.

So, I'm not 100% sure where I fall....some schools consider me white, others don't.

And I'm sorry, but did you say you were scoring in the 130's at one point?

I don't know what kind of crackpot census considers Iranians to be white.  But then again...knowing the US Govt...

I sort of feel bady for Benefactor.

He's unwittingly called provoked the wrath of the entire message board. The very gods of Olympus have descended from their lofty perch to hurl lightning bolts up his ass.

He is but a common fool. He knows not what his idiocy hath wrought.

Pity him!

I actually like the position that I am in.

Benefactor: good luck on the LSAT. Judging your character based on your last few posts, you're going to need a good score to get in anywhere.

My character?  Explain, please.

YOU ARE A JACKASS

You are jealous of someone's success so you try to put them down. Go back to kindergarten and learn that it doesn't make you a better person if people feel bad around you. hth.

I'm jealous of somebody taking 5 tries to get a 154?  That's like me being jealous of somebody because they took 5 strokes to make a 3 foot putt.  Get real.

...and still beats you by 12 strokes every time.

I'd love to know where the 12 came from.

OMG. It was an arbitrary number. That wasn't the point. It's like talking to a brick wall...

edit: it also happens to be the number of sheep you had to ask out before one would sleep with you.


Thanks, Rev!  ;)

Oh, no! You found out about the sheep?!

Like talking to a brick wall because you made up a retarded, irrelevant number?
