low lsat, Harvard here I come

low lsat, Harvard here I come

I took the lsat last Feb. and got a 139.  I started feeling a bit cynical, especially seeing how I dumped $1,000 into Kaplan so I decided what the hell, why not...I applied to Harvard as a practical joke to my friends (and to say I applied there) and f-in' believe it or not, I got in!  I don't know how, exactly, but I did...

Perhaps it has to do w/ my work experience and gpa?

Let that be a lesson to my fellow, poor lsat takers.

you think maybe they read the 139 as a 169?

or the adcoms got together and said that they would all smell each application and admit one application from the REJECT pile that smells the most like *&^%...and his smelled like it fell in a korean outhouse.

I really don't.  I just thought there was a site that listed the names of most colleges entering classes.

i think its safe to say this is complete BS.  yale did not admit anyone with LSAT scores under 155 and its probably reasonable to think Harvard is the same.
