give me some love...
« on: October 31, 2005, 04:46:43 PM »
ok - give me my chances people...

Stanford Undergrad (Intl Relations / French) 3.75
Latino/Chicano
Born in KY
Gay (mentioned in App)
Work as Buyer in major fashion house in NY - diversity, right :)
Wrote a catching personal statement (if I may say so)
Overcome financial/parental hardship (also mentioned in addendum)
Studied in Paris

and...

crap lsat - 155

i suck at standardized tests and couldn't afford take kaplan. my sats weren't in Stanford's 25/75 and i still got in and did well (i mentioned that in my addendum).

i live in manhattan and want to stay here - so what are my chances at Columbia/NYU/Fordham? Do I even have one? I applied early to Columbia - are they laughing at me and crumpling up my app?
who the hell am i kidding?
self-handicapping: of course
probable: indubitably

gpa - better than most; lsat-please ignore
