Not to sound rude, but if you want to brag about your vast intelligence, you  might want to use at least somewhat proper grammar.

Wow. I thought you were a flame. How are you a Penn alum if you are at Columbia and graduated high school in 2006?

Also, ditto to the previous post. I'd remain as anonymous as possible in the law school board/application process.

p.p.s. if 12-page papers are too much for you to handle, I think you're going to have a female dog of a time in law school.

I've read a lot of "what not to do in your personal statement."  They give a lot of good advice.  One piece of advice that is not in there, probably because it is implied, is that you should not be a feminine hygiene product.  So based on that, I'd say find something else.

what a ridiculous post.  "I'm so smart!" 

If you only plan on getting a 170, obviously you really aren't that smart.  It seems, based on what you wrote, that you may have developed early but that's about it...

I really don't like people of your ilk.

this post really ticked me off...  ::)

OP, if you knew from the outset that you would come off as arrogant, why did you post it?  Ridiculous. You are way too in love with yourself.

Truly, truly epic. Especially lol'd at the reference to exceptional K-8 performance and breathless mention of "famed" Columbia core curriculum.

The only explanation for such an attitude that I can imagine is that madam was not intelligent or perceptive enough to be humbled by 3.5 years at Columbia. Or, that Columbia is somehow a cesspool of mediocrity.
