I always found it funny when students thought I might have a conflict of interest with them because I was also applying to law schools.  Another instructor told me about how one of her students brought this up, and we chuckled about how that student stood no chance at any of the law schools we were applying to. 

Hah, good times.

The appropriateness of Perpetua would probably depend on the tone of the writing.  When I used it, I (half playfully) thought the extra space made the words sort of resonate.

Yeah... this is sort of what I was trying to get at with the statistics thing.  Maybe in a nicer way.. ;)

It's ridiculous on so many levels... 1) He has a 179.  Let's be realistic about what his odds are at pretty much any school, even if he has a horrible GPA.  2) Let's say he is able to give all of his students horrible test advice and all of them just accept it, stagnating at their original scores.  At most he's influenced what, sixty people?  Tops?  Out of a pool of tens of thousands of applicants?  "Drop in the bucket" would be a pretty gross exaggeration.

It appears that theo is correct about tinkle45 being a shill. I checked the TM website and the only male instructor with a 179 who is teaching this summer is Jacob Lillywhite. He teaches in DC and is going to Yale Law School. So tinkle's story couldn't possibly be true. I wonder which one of TM's competitors she (or he) works for.

Now, now, tinkle may be sincere (and possibly misinformed about her instructor's admission status), but I can say with confidence that unfortunately there have been shills spotted on LSD who represent rival prep companies - and more than a few times.

I know nothing in particular about tinkle, I was just tossing it out there as a possibility.

But if you look at her previous posts, she's taken the exam 3 times, has read the bibles, taken PS, now is taking TM, and is just now learning how to negate some/most statements?

Being deprived of summer fun better be worth it

I'm not theo. Would you care to explain how you took Powerscore for the June LSAT and "self-studied" at the same time?

This idea really is pretty unlikely, unless the instructor only had like a 164.

Perish the thought, right?

Hey, I restrained myself this time.  ;)

But obviously someone with that score might actually face (theoretical) admission competition from a bright student.

 :D  Well I certainly wouldn't want anyone with a 164 teaching me.  I may as well be teaching them or studying with a friend for free.  Then again, there is that old saying: those that can't do, teach. 
By girlfriend, do you mean that piece of rabbit fur you rub on your d*ck every night?
