Condolences to Ruskie on the NY bar.  That must sting a bit.

Lots of smart people from good schools fail it each year. Look at JFK Jr.

I'm amazed that someone so painfully average looking could come out of an SEC school and still think she's objectively more attractive than most.

P.S. So far, Bearly has used this thread like short guys use weight lifting.

Link to JFK Jr. being smart? 

That said, it's a tough bar, and does require a lot of steady prep.

You got into Boalt for two reasons:

1) You got a ~7 point bump on your LSAT score for being a Russian (which is what you wrote your entire PS about).  (Montauk 205)

2) You went to a TTT undergrad in the deep south, and were probably the only person from your undergrad ever to apply to Boalt.

I hope this clears everything up and we can close this thread.

Russia != LSAT boost.

I checked Montauk 205 for this. (I'm an interested party because I am Russian and want to go to Boalt).
