Can I write my PS in the form of an interview with an adcom??

Yes, but make sure you detail how you overcame adversity during the interview.  Did it start off badly?  Was the admcom bored? mean? conservative?  What did the experience teach you about resilience?  Did you create an ordered situation from a chaotic one?

TITCR

Plus, maybe in the conversation you convinced the adcom member of one of your beliefs. Did you bring the adcom member to Jesus?

Yes.  Saving the adcom from burning eternally in hell might boost your soft factors.

I've decided to write my personal statement in the form of a Logical Reasoning Question.

Adcoms like to decipher fun little games! Breaks up all the other boring applications!!!! God, people suck.

Tell me what you think!



People who are not ugly are superior human beings. Those who are superior possess a keen ability to judge othersí personalities, even if these personalities are forced to be represented incompletely on an unfairly simplistic piece of paper. An adcom who possesses this trait looks closely at every application, regardless of the personís race, creed, color or numerical value. Closely evaluating each application is a reflection of a smart adcom. And of course, any smart adcom would immediately admit DemingH and provide her with a full ride and the white pony of her choosing.

What can be properly inferred based on the passage above?

a) Deming actually deserves two ponies, one of which must be white. And donít forget they need a stable to live in.
b) If the reader rejects Deming, then he/she is clearly a hideous mongrel and hasn't accepted the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ into his/her heart.
c) The person reading this PS should immediately admit the applicant, unless the reader wants to lose his/her job, dignity and sense of self worth.
d) If the person reading this personal statement is beautiful, intelligent and discerning, he/she is also a superior form of human being and will be brought a steaming hot latte by an equally superior smokin-hot stranger the day after Demingís acceptance letter arrives.
e) DemingH is way funner than can be expressed by GPA and LSAT Scores, and her funness should be weighted appropriately when calculating the applicant index.

Wait, there is no option for all of the above. So I choose to contest this question. Is that the right answer?

Choice e can clearly be eliminated because it can be inferred that a beautiful and saved adcom would never use an index, which is a device employed by scientists, who are liberals and therefore godless.

finely done elmira, finely done.

Does this mean that an equally superior smokin-hot member of the opposite sex will be delivering a latte to me soon?

Help!

Does my 3.0 gpa in Pwncology count for anything?  It's a tough major.  Will adcomms notice?

You, sir, have a 4.3 in Pwncology, and we all know it.
That's cool how you referenced a case.

What is the point of this thread anymore? Every Joe Ijusttookthelsat has posted their own thread about their chances. Now I will never get an answer about whether I can get into Harvard with my 2.6/160.

Where have y'all been all day? I spent the morning trying to convince someone that the LSAT writing sample is not scored.

Forget Tom Cruise. Ask Reese Witherspoon. I mean she got into Harvard AND an Oscar. That's way cooler than that Noble thing. Or maybe you should get a Coppola to do a video instead!

Because of my LSAT writing sample, they had to bump my LSAT score up to a 184. It was the greatest writing sample they say has ever passed though. Ever.
