This episode of Scandal is everything! Who is this Pete guy? What was this missing flight?! What's the Scandal?!!!!

Maybe I'll write why statements that say, "I want to go to your school because I believe you can make me the next Olivia Pope."

Yeah I didn't understand all of the "law students are the worst" jokes at first, but the more threads I read in full on this site, the more I see where it comes from.

I wasn't referring to this thread, however I can't speak for toshiroh (although the October LSAT Waiting Thread is probably the most active on the site right now, so I'd bet money on something happening there).

Checking in! I am 3.97/161 splitter, so who knows how this cycle will play out. Good luck everyone.

What kind of URM are you? Incidentally, we had another URM poster last cycle start off with a low 160s score retake and then get into both Harvard and Stanford. Moral of the story -- retake that 161 if you have the opportunity to. ;)

I'm Mexican American. At this point a December retake for this cycle will probably not get me a much higher score. I am happy being outside of YHS. NYU/Berkeley are probably my top reaches. If I bomb this cycle, I will definitely retake and go for round two next year.

I don't know if I'm just horrible at using the search function, but can anyone point me in the direction of some examples of Why X? statements?

Do you guys think two pages double-spaced is too long for a diversity statement? I think I got carried away.... :oops:
