i think 9 out of 10 people are telling the truth on this board.  people sincerely want to help, and i can see that, which is why i stick around this board. 

i just dont know why people would be inclined to lie on a discussion board.  whats the point?  does it make you look better to others whom youve never met?  its kinda sad to think that people value their worth and falsely validate themselves on the internet to make themselves feel better.  those people dont need to be put down...they need help psychological help.  maybe its a fantasy.  maybe they just suck in real life.  who knows...

but i can say that the people who ive interacted with on this board seem pretty genuine in their words.  and thats a lot from me...cuz im an cynical bastard.

You're right.  I hate people that lie about their scores.  They make my 180 look less impressive.

I have noticed that as well.  On the other hand, I live in Boston and everyone I know from work, school, church, and random meetings at parties went to Harvard or MIT or some even more elite school and they are mostly super accomplished people.  I don't think I know a single person whose test scores (whether MCAT, GMAT, GRE, etc) are less than the 95th percentile.

It is getting to the point that I think anything less than getting into a top 5 law school would be way way below average. I'd rather crawl in a cave and die than go to some sub-par place like U. Penn, U. Michigan, Berkely, Duke, Northwestern, etc.  I mean those are schools for people who can't make 175.

We would not expect anything less from someone of your pedigree, lobes.

I was hoping, on an incredible reach, to get in Georgetown.  I now know, thanks to superior, that it would bring shame on serveral generations of my children.  I am going to commit hara-kari to preserve my honor.
