darn tootin'

At least I realize the fact that someone with a 146 isn't getting into Harvard.


I sure you're both kidding... but I'll bite.

darn tootin' = damn right.

Oh... and AlmostFamous/foxnewssuck = idiot

nice guys finish last.  and a 146 would not qualify as a "minor exception", it would be a major and nearly inconceivable contradiction.  the only case i could possibly see for a tier 1 or 2 school to accept such a low score would be if the person was native american or alaskan eskimo.



Minor exceptions are all I'm talking about... and they're not just for legacies.

Listen, if I scored a 146 I would study like mad and take the lousy test again, but if stratagem09 wants a glimmer of hope she's got it. *shrugs* I'm done here... I was just trying to be nice.

my bet is that for most schools the range of scores below the 25th percentile is fairly tight with perhaps minor exceptions for legacies and biggers ones for URMs.

Chelsea Clinton couldn't get into Yale Law with a 146. 

Unless you have something truly distinct about you, 146 is going to keep you out of all tier 1 and tier 2 schools.
