No, I don't really think it is better. I was trying to look at the bright side. Of course it is better to have a good team to root for. I will tell you, during my years at USC, they lost to Notre Dame and UCLA every single season, they finally decide to dominate and win it all while I am living in another country and can't watch any games, at least I got to enjoy the repeat. Here comes three in a row.
Sorry to distract attention away from the OP. By the way Burgh, I think the thing you can be most proud of is that you did what you could with the LSAT to make up for the lower GPA ages ago(I am in the same boat on that part), and that out of those top top schools you applied to, the one you interviewed with thought you were right for their program and had the confidence to know that the old GPA was nothing to worry about.
