Gingers have souls? That's just an urban legend. I'll even submit it to Snopes for verification.

I just went back to read the thread on describing/speculating on what LSDers are like IRL and I probably lol'd at least 4 times. I really, really heart that thread. And for the record, I don't think I sound anything like a cross between Lisa Turtle and the girl from Napoleon Dynamite! Mayyyyyyyyybe Deffffffffffffinitely a cross between Lisa Turtle and Alicia Silverstone or Stacey Dash from "Clueless." Sigh.


ETA: I just realized there are some completely unintentional, hardcore lulz in that set of threads too.

Went ahead and fixed that for ya

 :P :P :P :P :P :P

We'll see if I go easy on you for the next Kick a Ginger Day!

Four Markets is a ton. I'm doing 2 and its way toooo much work.  Plus, there are like 5 firms total that haven't screwed people over.

Don't remind me. Then OCS tells me that they're risk averse, so that means I should bid on less firms.  ::) Sometimes I think it's a fool's errand, but on the other hand, we do get 35 bids. For me, it's hard to think of 35 firms where I'd want to work so why not shoot for some good firms in other markets?

ION: Bidding Blows.

Ugh, the absolute worst. Plus, I guess I'm actually bidding on four markets, despite what OCS tells me (though two of them are getting the majority of the bids) so it seems difficult to get it all together. Hell, I'm still working on the list of firms at which I want to place bids. Ordering would probably make my head explode.

I guess I should say, former LSDer. If it was any of y'all, I'm sure it would have been fun :)

Also, Happy 4th! I hope everyone is out celebrating today.

So, when I was selecting my job for the summer, the one I very nearly took would have had me working with an LSDer. I just found this out today. Could have been awwwwwwwwkward.

HLS hasn't done class rankings for a long time.  The current grade system is low pass, pass, high pass.  So basically A-, A and A+ got lumped together in high pass while pass lumps B and B+ and low pass = B-.  I'm sure its not an exact match-up, but that's basically it.  There is a mandatory curve, so the ratio of low pass, pass and high passes will be pretty constant (so unlike YLS, low passes are common at hls).

I agree with everything you wrote in your previous post except this. There is no mandatory curve, but a "recommended" curve. That was made clear back in November '09 with the email that got sent around to faculty and later, to students. For what it's worth, almost all of the professors I've had thus far (and believe me, it's a limited number), have said they were either going to stick to the recommended curve or give out grades that were around there (maybe one or two less LPs, but not eliminating that category altogether).

Also, for those who would have had A+ under the prior system, there is the Dean's Scholar Prize which notes the top one or two grades in the class. So those superstar types can still get recognition :)

The thread on HB's future was one of my favorites of all time. <3 <3 <3

I would be more likely to say N, then MVP on down. Chicago seems to frown on the 3.6 GPA or lower, regardless of LSAT score, as does Columbia. I honestly don't think HYS would be in the picture either (mayyyyyyyybe S if you jump through their picky "show us you really want to be here" hoops) because of the GPA. If you did get in to one of those, I'd say it would be a WL --> accept with a 3.5x/165.
