Ventured out into the broader tls today. It's not as nice a place as here. Arguing with an ass over the nasty things he said to Twenty, who, despite the fact that I've never met him, I'm rather fond of.

Though on that note, to be entirely honest, I'm kind of surprised at the immaturity of a lot of folks on TLS. Not you guys per se -- you guys are wonderful. I had roughly a year of jackassery between age 15 and 16 (which ended right about as I got my driver's license), but these people are not only college graduates, a lot of them have been working for several years in professional environments. Like, once you're an adult, you really do have to stop being 1) stupid and 2) a jackass.

Those are my only thoughts on this subject. :D


That is when they begin to reach their stupid, jackass, and entitled prime. That is why I try to stay in in the URMs threads and Acceptance threads. Because some people are just rude and ignorant.

Does anyone know about the general difficulty of the February LSAT ? I'm thinking bc not too many people sit for that exam , then the curve may be a bit nicer. I'm not too sure about this theory. Thoughts ?

The "curve" is predetermined. So it is no more difficult or easy compared to other tests.

I thought I read somewhere that there was a relationship between the curve and the number of test takers. Womp. Simple mixup on my behalf. Ahh well back to studying for the February exam.

There really is no curve. The test is designed so that if you get a 172 on one test you should score the same on a different one, the percentiles vary slightly however.

Thanks all! I'll give it another try.


FYI Got the waiver from GULC when I followed up. Columbia didn't bite though...said it doesn't offer waivers directly. Since Columbia claims to average LSATs, I guess it makes sense that I didn't get a waiver :|

About three weeks. Wouldve been a month by the 15th.
But the GULC interview went well! It was a lot of fun. Dean Cornblatt said we would hear back by January 1st. He also said he wished he had more time with our group, which was nice.

Nice! That's awesome feedback. Are those interviews offered for only those in the DC area?

Congrats! Dean Cornblatt is great! Im sure you'll get in. My group interview actually went like ten minutes over time and it was so awkward seeing the next group looking pissy at us when we walked out.

I am Catholic. All we do is ask them to stand and say "Welcome." "Peace be with you." Is apart of our mass. For the universal sign of peace.
