This is the first time I've ever heard of anyone being "pretty positive" about scoring in the 99%ile...
And why hasn't LSAC released it?
I almost didn't want to say it but your whole story just seems too bizarre to me
haha I'm sorry... you think it's bizarre that anyone could expect above a 173 or that a URM does? That's a mildly disappointing comment... Maybe you need to reconsider your expectations. I met a fellow URM the other day who went to Harvard got a 3.8 and then 180d his first LSAT.
Also, I posted my story elsewhere. It's a test center hold because of noise in the center.
It's pretty obvious that she meant the former. And playing the race card won't work with Gaia, she's a URM at Harvard.
This is the URM forum.. I'm aware she is a URM. That doesn't preclude her from underestimating other URMs. I wasn't sure what she meant though, since there are quite a few TLSers on here, who expect higher than 173 on their LSATs. I think it's reasonable... anyways. dumb conversation; I was just a little taken aback by the comment- seemed to imply that I was some sort of troll. Don't want to have to deal with that. I'm just like every other psycho overly obsessed TLSer on here lol
Underestimating URMs, huh? Yeah.....that's a pretty unsubstantiated comment. I don't think that questioning someone who appears to be weirdly naive as to assume a score in the 99%ile constitutes as an underestimation. There's a difference between expecting/hoping for a score in 99%ile and assuming that you actually have a score in the 99%ile without actually seeing your score. I have absolutely no reason to discourage another fellow URM, and quite honestly, the posters who are most familiar with me know that I would probably be the last person to do such a thing.
But I'm not about to derail this thread. So...if you feel like you have anything more to say to me, please feel free to PM me.
