The term is "troll," not "flame."  ffs


A "Troll" is someone who attempts to pump up a certain school.

A "Flame" is someone who insincerely posts to get reactions.

The OP is a Flame, not a Troll.

Maybe in your little corner of the internet.  Elsewhere, the rest of us have agreed on different meanings.  Hence the confusion.


Sorry, let me clarify:

In the pre-law admissions board context, a troll is someone who pumps up a certain school.  A flame is someone who just likes to stir up trouble.

Obviously, in other "little corners of the internet", people may have other meanings for those words.

Hope this cleared up the confusion.  :)

Hey,
 I am new to this forum, but I just came back from abroad and found out about my June LSAT score/tallied GPA. I majored in Nuclear Engineering and English.

My UGPA according to the LSAC is 4.1 (A+s really do help), I really want to see what financial package I can receive from these schools since I am filed as an independent.

My other qualifications include 4 years in Crew, Delta Kappa Epsilon and Men's Volleyball. Nothing I do really relate directly to law school.

I am thinking about Cornell and Columbia as my reach school since I've heard the Top 5 schools are extremely competitive. Any thoughts?

Thanks!

you'll get dinged everywhere you apply.

Dude! Where have you been?

I registered an account just because of this thread, because I had to compliment you. Very funny.

I like the play on your name, John (every man) "whit" (wit, white)
