Just hoping to be like you one day. Scouring TLS to find those who misapply "T-10" and "T-7" and bring them to justice, while spraying a few insults from behind my computer screen along the way. Feels good, man


As oppose to creating a screen name about your school and finding boys to troll for it?

Yeah, as I stated above, I really get off when someone calls UVA a T-7 instead of a T-10. Clear trolling on my part when I called you out for diverting a thread where a guy was just looking for advice and got called a 'retard'

T7 is retarded. And if there were a T7, UVA wouldn't be in it.

I don't get why you are mentioning MVP, that makes way more than 7 top schools.

I repeat, LOL retard.


What a douchebag. You embody everything that is wrong with TLS, and deep down you are obviously one of the saddest most pathetic individuals in real life to have nothing better to do than attack people anonymously on an internet forum to get your retarded TLS profile up to 19,000 in worthless posts.

Hello Wahoo's alt.


LOL, so what you can't deal with the fact that multiple people are speaking out against the worthless shit you've been spouting across these forums? I call on any of the TLS moderators to check the IP address of Wahoo and I, and the time stamps on our posts, to definitively prove it's impossible we are the same person.

Nice try, though.

T7 is a retarded idea, and T777 is even more retarded. Especially when M and V are two the shittier T14.

Thanks for addressing OPs question! You really captured what he was looking for in this thread (I think his original post asked for the semantics of internet forum law school rankings terminology)

Serious question though, how the hell does UVA keep their medians with the 40% in-state quota?

Everyone essentially does that..

But with such a huge constraint, they still keep high numbers. Somethings off, and it is probably a positive for UVA because Virginia just ain't that great as a state.

Not to the extent that UVA does. They have a lower GPA floor/LSAT floor than anyone but NW (which has a weird work requirement).

Go to UVA with that money, unless you get a full ride somewhere, and then go there.

Maybe if you kept your guide for Virginia residents only, otherwise that other 39.7% is still beyond me

UVA doesn't have to have any particular percentage of instate students -- if it were really hurting them, I suspect they'd just reduce the percentage of instate students they wanted to have. As somebody else pointed out, with Northern Virginia there's this really dense area of wealthy parents and high-achieving students. Also, you'll get a lot of people that have worked post-UG in the DC area but live in Nova, so establish residency prior to applying to law school.

Desert Fox just needs to have his pants tailored a little bigger so he isn't in such a bitchy mood.

I'm wondering the same thing... what do you mean about the grading policy? How is it less student friendly? I've been admitted, and this is the first time I've heard this, so I'm interested...

Especially since UVA has a grading policy that isn't as student friendly as its peers.



That makes sense and was what I was wondering. But I think he was asking about the grading policy thing. Can you explain this? Or show where I can find info on this. Thanks

I'm pretty sure he's referring to the fact that UVA's curve is pretty tight. 3.3 is median, but 3.4 puts you close to top third, and 3.2 puts you close to bottom third. I'm not precisely sure why that is necessarily less student-friendly, but I haven't thought about it at all and could be convinced.

I saw BruceWayne mention it in a different post, but I think he was also referring to the fact that there is no real script to follow as long as the median comes out to a 3.3. So for some classes A teacher may give out lots of A's, but balance it out with a hefty amount of C's. Obviously the A's help some students, but giving out a ton of C's will invariably sink nearly any chance those students had at Big Law. I believe this was something he mentioned in one of his posts, but I hope he can come back to fix it.

For any individual class at UVA, the mean (not median) has to come out to between a 3.25 and a 3.35. So yes, if some professors want to give more As, they'd have to balance it out with some/more Cs. I think you're overestimating how many Cs a "hefty" amount is, though. We aren't talking about double digits, and with very rare exceptions (in non-1L classes), it's under 5 or none at all.

To be honest, I think pushing a handful of the worst exams from B- to C+ and correspondingly giving a couple more A-s instead of B+s is a net benefit in terms of students getting biglaw from UVA. A student in that mushy slightly above median area will be helped quite a bit more than the bottom 10% student.
