sorry, it got chopped a little....there's a few more lines....i should rent the movie and type up the words myself, since there are different versions out there.


"Let me tell you something you already know. The world ain't all sunshine and rainbows. It is a very mean and nasty place and it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. Not you, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain't how hard you hit; it's about how hard you can get hit, and keep moving forward; how much you can take, and keep moving forward. That's how winning is done. Now, if you know what you're worth, then go out and get what you're worth. But you gotta be willing to take the hits, and not point fingers saying you ain't where you should be because of him, or her, or anybody. Cowards do that, and that ain't you. You're better than that!"

hey kids....

i know this is the wrong board to be posting this. but i mostly post on this board anyways, so whatever....

i got my first letter of law school acceptance today!!!  i took the LSAT 5 times.  my scores were 150, 151, 152, 154, and one cancellation.  i have a 3.23 gpa from Penn State University.  my numbers are low, but i wrote a killer personal statement.  i got into University of Wisconsin - Madison.  I think it's a Top 30 law school.

just wanted to tell all you LSAT kids, that there is more than one way out of the jungle!  so if you're LSAT score sucks, find another way to get to where you want!

love,
lather

Not to be mean, but some people just seriously aren't cut out for law school.  You took the LSAT 5 times...I would have killed myself after that 152...possibly even after the 151.  How the hell you even got into UW-Madison is beyond me.  Pity perhaps?

you guys are the best!  i'm so overwhelmed with all the positive reponses!  thanks again so much!  we'll see what happens...i'm still waiting to hear from more schools.


you know, Rocky Balboa gave a really meaningful speech in Rocky 6. he said....

"What is it you said to the kid? The world ain't all sunshine and rainbows. It's a very rough, mean place... and no matter how tough you think you are, it'll always bring you to your knees and keep you there, permanently... if you let it. You or nobody ain't never gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain't about how hard you hit... it's about how hard you can get hit, and keep moving forward... how much you can take, and keep moving forward. If you know what you're worth, go out and get what you're worth. But you gotta be willing to take the hit."


.........that's how winning is done.......

What the hell would you know about winning? Your best LSAT was a f-in' 154.

you lose at analogies. Teh 154 was "how hard you  can get hit." Wisconsin is the winning.

You mean Wisconsin is the really generous judge who wasn't watching the fight and the fighter in question getting his/her ass kicked?

My states are as follows: LSAT = 149, GPA = 3.43  I've taken a few undergrad classes in law and aced them, and have solid LOR's.
The schools I've applied to thus far are:

Cleveland State University
Richmond
Campbell University
Dayton
University of Tennessee Knoxville
University of Kentucky
University of Louisville
Duquesne
Mercer
Case Western

What are my prospects? I was looking at the lsac calculator but don't really believe it, because in inflated my stats a bit and even then it said I couldn't get into some universities that I'm sure I can get into with my actual stats.
Thanks

This response goes out to both you and the person who quoted my post from 3 weeks ago.  As you may or may not know...and I'm guessing you don't, I didn't study for the LSAT.  That is why I got a 149.  I'm taking it again in June, and after only about 2..maybe 2 and a half weeks of prep, I'm already scoring from 160-164 on practice tests.  I didn't take the LSAT 5 times like some people who I guess were using the "blind squirrel finds the acorn" approach.

lol


If I don't get into any of the schools I applied to, then yeah, I'll go ahead and retake the LSAT.  I just think it's a shame, because I don't really believe the LSAT tests anything at all.


You're silly.

I don't believe it tests anything at all.  Nothing of value, anyway, only the ability to take that test.  I never denied that and I'm not doing it now.  But if you take it 5 times....and presumably you study for it every time, it says a hell of a lot if you can only go up 4 points from your first time to your fourth or fifth time.  At some point, it becomes a matter of learning from your mistakes, and that's not a really convincing case of somebody doing it.  That does speak to somebody's intelligence.

Benefactor: good luck on the LSAT. Judging your character based on your last few posts, you're going to need a good score to get in anywhere.

My character?  Explain, please.

YOU ARE A JACKASS

You are jealous of someone's success so you try to put them down. Go back to kindergarten and learn that it doesn't make you a better person if people feel bad around you. hth.

I'm jealous of somebody taking 5 tries to get a 154?  That's like me being jealous of somebody because they took 5 strokes to make a 3 foot putt.  Get real.
