Most awesome part: the owner of a website publicly offers somebody $100 to post material under copyright. And can do so without even pretending to care about anonymity.

I <3 the internet.

Yeah, but he makes it seem like he got it from a "source"... That's a bit lame. Also, TLS got the confirmation & the complete rankings. So, props must go to OperaSoprano, Ken, Mandelbaum, and TLS as a whole!

Also, does anyone know if these issues are out anywhere else but the magical Hudson News by the LIRR at Penn Station?

But unless Critical Badger had some inside knowledge, it was probably just a wild guess. Just like a lot of posters on here. See: blind squirrel finding acorn.

I'll chip in a drink or two, as well. But I'm not going to be in NYC...I'm sure PK can cover the extras.

Agreed. They should get special colors for their usernames, or descriptive accolades above their usernames.

To all those who offered to buy me drinks: thanks! I am abstaining from alcohol until the evening of June 8th, when I plan to drink myself into oblivion. I hope you will all come with me! There's an amazing bar called Bourgeois Pig, just a few blocks east of here.

I will be in NYC through July. If Fordham has not admitted me by then, I will have to leave my beloved city :cry: , but I might pop up in San Francisco or Boston. It all depends...

As always, thanks for making TLS such an epic win. If this site hadn't existed, I wouldn't be in at a pretty kick ass school that has unfortunately dropped six spots in the rankings, to #94. WTF, USNews? I want my $9.95 back.

Yale students too busy studying impractical theoretical BS?

Or 8% have zero work ethic.

I thought the NY Bar was supposed to be easy. UVA had 99% bar passage rate.


Wurtzel?

Yale's class is so small that ONE PERSON can still impact their passage rate at the decimal! :lol:

I love that the pics OS took are showing up all over the law school internet world. It's like knowing a celebrity, kind of, but not really-ish.

I think we can not worry about who was right or who was wrong on the rankings being legitimate. Myself, Gilchristh, and others could have been wrong but the coin toss went our way. So lets put any animosity behind us as it was a great night for all of TLS!

Ken, with the publicity you can spin from this, you might consider upping Opera's stipend just a tad. :wink:

I'm just happy that of all the other sites I could have been a part of, it appears I was successful in making TLS my choice. Hopefully this will steamroll me through my 2010 cycle. :D

I will, Mallard. I got a 169 on a preptest yesterday, which I know cannot touch your level of greatness, but should do me for the Fordham PT or Hastings waitlist if I can replicate it in June.

True. We need more shoutouts for Helmholtz. I think the dude put up those first leaks like 20 times, as they kept being taken down and replaced with who knows what.
