Not a surprising question from someone smart enough to be above the 75th percent LSAT at every school and below the 25th GPA. You know you don't get to take a test at the end of law school that gets you a great job even if your grades aren't good.
you can do drugs and get good grades. believe me.
Oh what a mistake in logic you made. I was saying A (bad grades) can be a result of B (drugs). I never said that B always leads A.
in my case, you're right on point. A was a result of excessive Bs (drugs and alcohol, girls, madden, etc). but C (my lsat score) was a result of D (ambition/hard work, sort of). in the end, my success will be measured by how well i balanced B and D. So far, i feel like i've done alright having f*ckd around this much and still be in contention to get in a decent law school.
my buddy's dad went to NYU law and partners for one of the biggest firms in Boston. you know what he does when he gets home from work? roll it, light it, smoke it. balance baby, balance.
