I hope it turns out that she ran away or something. He probably did do it though. I am even more convinced now that they have finally arrested him. As for the Psych Ward thing, the dude was running around a hotel naked... I mean, hes crazy.

LSAC and LSDAS / Re: Another LSDAS/GPA question

Grades Excluded from Conversion
Incomplete—only if the issuing school
considers the grade nonpunitive

If your school doesn't count it against you, either will LSDAS.  At least that seems to be the case.

Except in the case of classes that are repeated. The only way LSAC will not factor in the original grade is if the grade or credit hours do not appear on your transcript.

It sucks for me. I am making up for... actually, I am making a specifc topic.

LSAC and LSDAS / Re: So LSAC does in fact count A+ as 4.33 ??

I don't think my school gave out A+'s either... That kinda sucks when you figure in that some schools do and don't.  Do schools actually look at the transcripts or just the GPA I wonder...

As with so many things, I'm sure it depends on the school.

I'm sure the schools I applied to looked at mine.  My three semesters of academic probation, scholarship terminations, semester off, and final 2 semesters of decent (3.7) grades probably had to be seen.  :)


Sounds like we have something in common. My first 3 semesters I didnt do so hot. Well, I got good grades in all but 2 classes. Namely, the ones I didnt go to.

As for this 4.33 thing for A+'s... crap! My school does not give out A+'s, just A's. A 90% is the same as a 100% on the transcript. I do suppose it helps just as much as it hurts.

Here is an article published in the Yale Herald that may interest you on the ED process being re-evaluated.

Meat-man... ever since my son was... never born, because I've never had consensual sex without money involved... I've always kind of looked at you as... a thing, that I could live next to... in accordance with state laws.

Personal Statement / Re: ATTN: ALL English Majors

Do not start a sentence with and or but in your presonal statement.

I think i disagree with this.  Like Lexy said, there's no set rule.  Plus, it depends how you want your personal statement to sound.  If you want it to be extremely formal, then it probably wouldn't be a good idea ... otherwise, I say go for whatever ...

But I do not think it is a good idea. And, furthermore, I am the authority on proper sentence structure.  :o

despite his babyface, i have a sneaking suspicion "aboynoir" is just a pseudonym for the director of admissions at yale

If you are going to operate under that assumption, would it be out of order to promise you admittance in exchange for a date? Touché. ;D
