I finally just sent my dad to chiasu last night with my numbers so he'd stop talking about how sure he is I'll get into Stanford. That set him straight.
*L* I would do that if I were willing to admit my GPA to my relatives faces.
"What's your GPA?"
"Uhhhh bad. Had a lot of crud going on, lucky to have made it out of undergrad."
"It can't be THAT bad."
"Oh good, let's leave it at that then."
"Seriously, what's your gpa?"
"You're too hard on yourself, lots of people end up not quite at 3.5"
*Insert me staring* "Yeeeahhh...worse than that. So, what's going on with you guys - any new pets, kids?"
When dealing with my relatives I always just say "uhhhhh bad." and kind of hoped my LSAT would balance me out in my apps, which it really has. But them knowing I did well on the LSAT only serves to convince them more than I must be hiding my 3.49 GPA from them. Suckers! If only you knew how truly terrible it was!!! Whatever school accepts me, will have to let in, like, three 4.0's to average out the black hole that is my GPA.
