It's been brought to my attention that boss is my favorite poster
...with most people on this board.Really, how many of us have ever served on an admissions committee for a law school? How about since this new LSAT policy? Hm...probably not too many. Yet here we are spouting off knowledge and advice like we've all "been there, done there", and even if someone has already taken the LSAT or gotten into Law School, that doesn't mean they understand how the admissions process truly works. But we mean well.The people that really drive me batty are the extremely insecure people who can't stand having a 160 and a 170 reported to a law school. "Oh no, they'll see I got a 160 once!" Oh darn at some point in your life you were 80% percentile, and now you improved. Get some confidence! What's going to happen if you lose your first case as a practicing lawyer? Give up and walk away? Oh and those people who cancel in Septebmer because they think they may have scored below a 170. Do these same people realize that they might not do any better in December and at the same time, might have effectively screwed them out of some very high quality (but not T14) schools by missing the chance to apply in November and December? That's not at all a strategic move. Cancel if you must in June, but you better have your A game on by September. If you can't understand that strategy, again, I doubt your ability to strategically plan and try a case.Although I would practice with jer2911tx, or at least have a beer with him. I appreciate common sense, and he seems to be someone who's out here schlupping people (LSATgirl?) upside the head with it by the bucketload.

I never said I have a problem with the legal profession. I would LOVE to be a lawyer. I just don't want some of these nitwits to become lawyers. Because, if they do get into LS, and they do someday practice law...assuming they haven't changed for the better...their poor clients are in for a bunch of neurotic lawyers. Much like Cameron's breakdown in FBDO...
yea then I think that the problem you have is definitely more with this site than with the legal profession.
Many of the posters on this board are college seniors, so they are what, 21-22? Common sense often comes with maturity and leaving behind the comfortable student life where your biggest responsibility is showing up for class. Granted, not everyone is like that, some grow up quicker due to certain life circumstances, but it sounds from the posts that for most people freaking out about not breaking 170 this is their first bout with disappointment.
Especially Lex, whom everyone knows is one of the biggest flame/trolls on LSD.
