are we supposed to feel sorry for you?? You have only been admitted to 8 of the best schools in the country and you are crying about not getting into two of them. Did you know that you can only attend one school? I think having 8 of the best to choose from is good enough. So I ask, if you are inadequate, what does that make people like me who, with some luck, might be able to get into the very bottom rung of tier 1's? Even worse, what does that make people who can only get into tier 2s or 3s? I am sorry but keep your crying to yourself. If you aren't satisfied with your accomplishments thus far I don't think you ever will be. It is unfortunate because most people would die to be in your position.
also, how is being upset about a rejection from yale or stanford in any way insulting to someone who "with some luck, might be able to get into the very bottom rung of tier 1's"? hmmmmm....I think you can figure this one out having scored a 180 on the LSAT. didn't score a 180 on the lsat. scored a 175, and am still not able to tell why my getting rejected from stanford or yale insults someone who didn't even apply. first of all, why is it my problem that you haven't achieved what you would like to? I never said it was your problem. you implied such with the statement, "So I ask, if you are inadequate, what does that make people like me who, with some luck, might be able to get into the very bottom rung of tier 1's? Even worse, what does that make people who can only get into tier 2s or 3s?" to be honest, i feel for the people that "can only get into tier 2s or 3s" but i don't take any personal blame for their situation. should i apologize for doing well on the lsat? secondly, how is my getting rejected from my top choice (regardless of acceptances to other schools) any different from you getting rejected from your top choice? I apologize. I didn't do my research. I didn't know that one of those schools was your top choice.because noone considers yale or stanford a top choice? finally, if you don't want to hear comments like mine, why in the hell would you read a thread titled "rejected from stanford and yale"? I chose to read it because I find it interesting that someone as adept at test taking and getting good grades (and apparently drinking) is so insensitive. based on your responses, i highly doubt that you have read many of my posts (if any). therefore, you probably didn't know before reading this thread that i was adept at test-taking or getting good grades (or drinking, for that matter). so your response is somewhat illogical. and, referring to the first statement in this post, i still don't understand how what i wrote is insensitive. once again (maybe i don't understand?) how is my getting rejected from 2 schools insensitive or insulting to someone who didn't even apply to those schools? or to someone who did apply and was also rejected?By the way, you never answered my question about what you think about the rest of us who can't get into those schools. i've posted this on other threads in the past (which i assume you have not read, since you seem to know nothing about me at all), but i have a tremendous amount of respect for anyone going to any law school. not only is it achieving a personal dream, but it's also climbing to a new height in the professional world. regardless of the school, any study of law is commendable.I am sorry that you feel inadequate. Although I will never test like you, I actually feel quite accomplished. Yes, I have not achieved the best LSAT score but I have achieved much more in areas that you probably haven't achieved a thing. Each to their own. congrats on that! this statement seems to say what you are really getting at: "i didn't do well on the lsat but i'm better than you! " assuming that you are better than people that you have never met probably won't get you far in life, but as you say, "each to their own"
i'm fine with it, really. i just don't understand why they had to come on the same day. and on a day when i've been out celebrating how happy i am all day. so essentially i was having an awesome day, and i come home at 5:00 and see that i am a reject. i saw this coming, but i thought (hoped) they would wait a little longer. really, how am i so bad that despite the numbers they don't want me? wait, don't answer that, i don't want the answer. i am sorry to start a whole silly thread about my inadequacies. to be honest, i am a bit drunk right now (i had a great day yesterday and today) and totally didn't see this coming. i mean, i expected to be rejected eventually, but not right away, and not in the same day. i am going to cry some more....
