Yeah, I said "good numbers" because that's clearly what he believes he has. He's also stated that his LSAT is markedly different from the one on his LSN profile.

Over under on NAMBLA? Hmm, maybe 30%. They're not well known enough for this guy!

I finally get this guys problem. All you need to do is pass yourself off as a Marlon Brando lookalike and the Law Admissions Conspirators will finally give you the spot you deserve. Or they will continue with the crazed notion that you hide your lack of intellectual capacity behind the guise of non-conformity.

I'd be less vague if I wasn't under review at other schools right now and don't wish to provide so much detail I identify myself.

The things about me that may get me into a tier-1 at some schools are the very things that could get my application canned at others. How's that for "soft factors"?

In 2005 I was denied entry to a grad program at a regional nobody-ever-heard-of-em business school and accepted at a top-25. Thus is life. Ironically, I later became an adjunct for a term at the very place that denied me only 18 months earlier.

I guess its because I get up every morning and piss excellence. Some schools don't like that so much. :)


let me guess.......jesus camp, james dobson-glenn beck-esque conservative wingnut? (no offense to any reasonable conservatives....)

edit: try liberty university's law school

Regardless of political persuasion, they're rejecting him because his GPA/LSAT are laughably low. The fact that he's a douchebag just adds to the entertainment value.

im guessing its something to do with that, an accusation perhaps lawsuit maybe he lost? idk im sorry if thats for real but its weird he made it sound so political like he was the next karl marx or something


Except Karl Marx would probably get into law school because he was pretty smart and had excellent softs (published author, founder of a political movement).

Whoa, a 165 is a T2 or T3 score now? Not sure what I'll do next cycle.

Texas was a shocking rejection for me. The last few cycles for people with my numbers were very green on LSN. And I got a straight-up rejection very quickly.

Too bad for them, too, because I would have considered paying sticker there.

In the "180/3.75+" column, there was one rejection . . . when I asked about it, apparently the applicant was just brilliant but a sociopath and his LOR writers had actually advised against letting him in.

Note to self: do not ask for letters of recommendation from people who think that I am a sociopath.




omg that actually made me LOL

This is where my involvement ends. In no way should a person trying to fend off criticisms write so vaguely and with such ignorance for proper argumentation/sentence structure.

The intellectual reasoning of the comments is flawed. (and classic-sophomoric) As I said, I was not rejected but that my applications were destroyed (twice). And I also stated that it was not due to any group afflilation or character and fitness issues. I'll be happy to give additional details after the cycle is over. I'm not a marxist nor am I an objectivist, fundamentalist or any extreme fringe member of a political agenda. The worst you could say about me is that my life story might lead some to believe that libertarian principles (not objectivist principles, per se) have resulted in what I am today, whether or not I personally believed in them. I can relate to John Galt more than I can with Ayn Rand but that is far from the point because my PS/applications did not delve into political or philosophical ideology.

More to report in March.

I have a friend who got rejected from UPenn UG. He had quintuple legacy and his family donated a building to the school. He also had a 3.9, 2280 on the SAT, was on 3 varsity sports teams, etc. I suddenly felt a lot better about not getting in that year.

I think actually exposing this person is taking the debate too far...it should stay within TLS and maybe LSN even if it means we have to argue against only the information he is willing to provide. Because, let's be honest, he provides us enough ammo here already...
