Law School Applications / Re: 160 + 3.5 at Yale = WHAT LAW SCHOOLS?

Haha, yeah.  My fiancee's brother was a four-time state qualifier in wrestling and two-time runner up.  He was getting mail from Penn, Brown, etc. and I was like "Uh...whoa."

I think he got like a 19 on the ACT, though.  So obviously he's wrestling for a TTT.

Not to beat a dead horse (with regards to the whole '170+ from Yale' thing), but there's another factor that no one has considered: the OP played a sport.

The fact that the OP played football/basketball/whatever sport may have been a large factor in UG admission.  Someone from my high school was offered a spot at Yale to play football contingent upon his ACT score.  He only would have needed to get I think it was a 26 on the test in order to get in, as they still have certain standards for athletes, but not nearly as high.  Normally one would need--what?--34+.  (Side note: he came up ONE POINT SHORT and went to Case Western instead.  Ouch.)

Anyways, my point is that the OP does not necessarily have an ACT/SAT score that is on par with most Yale UG's, and thus would not be expected to have the same range of LSAT score (assuming there's a correlation).  On the other hand, one might argue that maintaining a 3.5 (even in a soft major) at Yale is indicative of great LSAT potential.  Who knows?

I agree with other posters that Good Will Hunting is excellent.

Also, has anyone seen One Hour Photo?  It's creepy, but awesome!

Law School Applications / Re: Top 5% in 1L at a Fourth Tier School

flame.

I have a different theory.  I don't think it's a flame.  Rather, I think that the OP is a 0L who is hoping to be in the top 5% if he/she decides to go to law school (at a T4), but wants to act as if this is already the case.

Who knows?

OP=UCLA troll?

Wait List / Re: Anyone wait listed for Samford???
« on: April 24, 2008, 10:21:48 PM »
I was rejected at Mercer, and waitlisted at Samford.  Samford is my absolute #1 choice.  Any advice/info about the waiting list?

Hold out for Samford. When someone asks you where you go, say 'Samford' really fast, and it kind of sounds like 'Stanford'.

I don't understand why "super-queer" and "really-really-queer" didn't make the approved list

I knew I left something out... I will let your post serve as a proxy for making an amendment to my approved list.

There's really not much you could say on the subject which cannot be summed up in this simple, reductionist statement: All superlative derogatory slurs=credited.

It's great to see one noob helping another noob.

Inspiring.  ;)

Do NOT go to Penn.  You don't want to be there if/when JoePa keels over on the sidelines.  This will be a very solemn time which will result in a gloomy atmosphere.
