Good luck to you too Kang.  Just out of curio, have you found a good source for new comparative reading practice questions?   LSAC published the June test with one of these and also has a couple more examples on its site, but I've found nothing better than that.  Just curious... not that the comparative reading business is really that much of a leap beyond the traditional reading comp question.

I was tempted to lie and say i got in but...


Jason,

I can't think of any other good sources besides what LSAC has previously released.  I believe the ACT has comparative reading passages but they won't compare to LSAT passages in terms of difficulty

I guess we'll all meet up next year when Kang and I are 1L's and d's a 2L transfer from the golden state.  That is, if you're really sure you want to deal with dc weather (whether it's hot or cold here, it's ALWAYS muggy).

Here's something funny... when I innocently type the name of the vice president with the usual nickname in place of richard... and try to post it... it comes out as:

male private part Cheney

That's cool.  I haven't had a Bevis and Butthead moment like this since '02.  Notice how the abbreviation of richard doesn't cut the electronic mustard, but "Butthead" is just fine.

I'm still waiting around... not sure if I'd go at this point, but I'll wait until next week.  A funny story about the filter... my friend plays so much online poker (which has the same type of thing) that at this point he gets around not-existent censors in e-mails and IM's.  His method of choice?  D.ick

Withdrew from FT wait list this afternoon.  Penn baby!

Congrats darkside!  Penn's not GULC PT, but I guess it's close enough.   ;)

Were you already at orientation somewhere?


Yes, I was at GW- actually the second day of class!  Crazy, but couldn't turn that down.

Hey d - sorry to have ruined your friday and sorry about the news.  will definitely post in the coming months regarding my second run through the gauntlet.  hey - no chance you'd transfer after the 1st yr?  People do that, though I imagine there are disadvantages. 

When's orientation for you?

Did everyone get this letter?

I didn't get anything yet but i'm sure i'll get the letter soon.

At this stage in the game, I would think that GULC would contact me if i got in... no word yet...
