Flaming a plausible scenario isn't really funny. Though now that I think of it, the 2.8 from Yale was bullshit. Nobody has a GPA that low at Yale.

It could be be funny coupled with ridiculous details.

I am no longer answering first day posters. They will all have to use the search function.

He just wanted people to get mad and start saying ridiculous and racist things. So really nice job all, everyone was really courteous and helpful.

I got a 2.8 gpa at Yale college but scored a 178 on the LSAT (only took it once). I should also add that I am a black male. What schools do I have a shot at? Is Harvard at least possible?

Thanks


URM splitters are always hard to predict, but Lawschoolnumbers does not look hopeful for URMs with a GPA that low (looking at Yale, Harvard, Stanford). Having Yale UG on your resume will help, but if I had to guess I'd say you'd get rejected from Yale and Stanford, waitlist at Harvard and Columbia, and in everywhere on down.

He's got this slight problem of asking people to suck him off that could be problematic though.... (see earlier in the thread)
