My GPA and LSAT are the averages for Princeton students. I'm an average Princeton student (regardless of race).

I don't want to be the best. I just want to do as well as I can, whatever that is. I am not ashamed of being in the 90th percentile for the LSAT or being a middle of the road Princeton student.

At this point, I'm only responding to others.

are you responding to all posts in general?  because i'm sorely tempted to change the subject. 

for example, we could talk about whether we will see any upsets tomorrow.

Packers by at least 14.  Patriots may not cover, but will win.

I agree with both.

There are so many things wrong with this statement.  You're satisfied with average?  You don't want to be the best?

90% on the LSAT is great.  It's just not NYU-great.

NYU obviously disagrees.

Hope that f-ing helps.

I did say average at PRINCETON (which in my honest opinion is the greatest institution of higher education in the universe).

And yeah, I am ok with being average here. My peers are amazing and I'm honored to be included amongst them.

same here, but i'm still holding out hope for the giants.  on the other hand i wonder if it would make more sense to want the packers to win since they probably have a better shot at taking down the pats.

Eli has admitted publicly that he detests playing in cold weather.  Are you really expecting him to play well for three games in a row?  He's a Manning.

We have established this already.  Please try to keep up.

But I should also add, I'm fine with being average in general. I don't derive my self-worth from getting the highest GPA/LSAT score or going to the most prestigious schools. Its nice, but its really not all its made out to be.

That's a rather silly statement.  In the infinite expanse of the universe, there is likely a much better educational institution than Princeton.

Out of curiousity, what was your SAT score?
