I don't mean to be a glass half empty person(since this phrase was mentioned above) but how can YOU predict what school you will get into. Yes everyone on here says its all about the number, no matter what, the number is 90per cent of the application/acceptance process.
The truth of the matter is, I think this notion that your number is 90% of the process is BS...yes the number matters maybe like 60% but to think that all they do is look at your LSAT and GPA, then you are in or out, I think you are setting yourself up for a failure.
Most people forget that there are other aspects to the process.
I mean I am going to study my butt off to get a great LSAT, but I would never ever think that my numbers, no matter how great or not-so-great they are, will automatically get me in or out of a school.
All I'm saying is, it sounds kinda egotistical and whatnot to say "oh I know I'm getting into Duke, UCLA etc" even before the application opens.
I know everyone will disagree with me on this, because like most people on here, we are all number obsessed freaks, but I just had to put in my thoughts. Carry-on!!!
