I remember this kid (who was later identified as Seamus) posted on princeton review's law school discussion website last year. Because I'm a huge loser now, and have nothing better to do with my time I went and searched the Princeton Review website and copied and pasted his original post below. Sounds from the way this kid talks that he's a real gem at parties..... Enjoy.
"I got into Yale Law School, which (needless to say) doesn't exactly seem like a bad option. Georgetown was the first school I got into, and my previous top choice.
I graduated from Bard College with a solid GPA (well, 3.93). I didn't have a perfect LSAT score, but I did have a number of unconventional assets which might have helped. I did some human rights work in Africa, which required traveling and living in war-torn regions of Angola and Nigeria. I hold a position as a UNICEF ambassador, and have written and spoken in a couple of high profile venues - articles published in the New York Times Upfront Magazine, speech given at the UN, interviewed on CNN, etc. - about Angola's current oil revenue distribution debacle. Also, I just turned sixteen (I started college at 11). There seemed, initially, to be a great deal of skepticism at Yale regarding this last point, so I was surprised to hear that they've admitted me.
This should lend hope to anyone else with an unconventional record. If you can distinguish yourself in other ways, the numbers are of secondary concern.
Here's my question: Yale Law wants to hear back from me by May 3rd. I'm leaning towards accepting the offer from Yale, but I haven't heard from Harvard yet. Is it worth waiting it out for Harvard's decision, or shall I stick with Yale?
Since my initial post I've visited Yale. Seeing it lends more credence than I can say to that pro-Yale leaning. It's small, intimate, and seems to be home to a fantastic student body and faculty."
