Look for places that have either a very active Federalist Society, or a very active American Constituion Society. The more active one of those are, the more you can know about the students (and to a certain extent faculty) at a given school.

While it is true that you should be primarily thinking about which schools is best for your goals, there is nothing wrong with considering the environment you'll be learning in. However, over the past couple of decades, most schools schools have smartened up and now have faculty of all political stripes. It really is better that way. Just my .02.

'who are you' in this instance is used to convey the meaning synonymous with "what is seriously wrong with you?"/What possessed you to think that was okay?

Its an internet forum where no ones true identity can be found, there are basically no rules.

Though that was relatively messed up

Wouldnt be a bad idea. I mean think about this forum....

Most people are students who are not in law school. We all think we know alot because we have been through the application process or seen the process of others, btu really our information shouldnt be taken for much.

Also people base WAYYY to much off of law school numbers when 1) its self reported so i can go on and say i got into HYS with a 3.5 165 and everyone will use it as a crazy example. 2) only a small portion of people applying to law school use LSN, so it shouldnt be used at all really.

I definitely responded to the OP, but I get the sentiment. I really have no idea why some people's lives are so bad that they waste everyone's time. Yes, it is an internet forum, and it's not really all that important. But that is all the more reason why these lame attempts to get people to laugh are pathetic. I'm sure though, that many posters will continue to waste everyone's time and their own energy. That's just the way it goes.

No - it just gets 'lulzy' answering the same-exact-question in depth every couple of months. We assume he's either a troll or he didn't bother to search. Either way, it's fair game.

Guys, get the stick out of your asses. Sheesh.

You seriously know someone who got into HYS with a 3.5/165? I always thought that the people quoting those crazy examples were just making stuff up but I believe you because I can tell you're being honest. I'm actually considering applying T3 as well after hearing of all the positive results from people with less than stellar numbers. I'll pm you to let you know how it turns out.

In either one of those scenarios, why not just move on? It's just lame.
