+1. Yes, it's the 99th percentile, but just barely, almost a thousand other people got that score this year. Seriously, you think that makes you a special butterfly? Yeah right. You need to be well into the 99th percentile. Re-take and let's talk when you have 175+


180 or bust

Every time I see the words "international law," I stop paying attention. I hope everyone on this site learns that in the entire history of the legal profession, not a single person has or ever will do "international law," no matter how totally awesome their semester in Prague was.

Ha it is like TLS wants you to do well but not to be happy...

Unless your in at YHS or have a fullride at a T10 you will probably feel bad about your choice because of TLS.


This is exactly right. Its like TLS is the pushy mother I never had (because my Mom is cool and is proud, or at least pretends to be proud, no matter what).

TLS is my tiger mother!

rofl, great article

Obviously, it would be cheering to report that both girls are humourless automatons with terrible dress sense. Sadly not. They have turned out so well they call their mother “insane”.

Before TLS

-I had no idea of the sort of boost I'm (theoretically, at least) in line for for being a URM
-I believed all the brochure stuff about median starting salaries from T40ish schools being 6 figures
-I thought that "median starting salary: 160k" meant that if I was significantly above median I could start at 200k or something
-I thought GULC was the absolute nuts

edit: as for how this manifested itself in real changes in my application cycle, I added apps to Harvard, Yale and Columbia and did not apply to Northwestern, GWU, WUSTL, Emory, UC Hastings, and UNC.

TLS almost certainly changed my life. I would have gone to Fordham last year if I hadn't learned about how regional law schools are.

He's calling me a little girl. Hopefully he's using the Mexican version of "cabron."


You're Mexican right? I didn't call you "little girl", I said don't be one. Creo que te lei escribiendo español en otro hilo, viviste en Mexico?

Born in the U.S. but raised Donde Empieza la Patria. You've been living here in the States for long? I'm going to law school in the East Coast, it's gonna suck being thousands of miles away from home and the food.
