I wagered someone that the average law school applicant would be more offended by someone entering with powerful soft skills than they would if someone with more equivocal grades got into a program.
The argument was that people are threatened by those that are different...that their grades being inferior gets them into the same peer group may reflect that there is more to success than grades and that perhaps the original applicant's emphasis on their stats is somehow marginalized. (similar to the proveable bias on TLS against URMs getting into programs with different stats)
Any socialogists wish to chime in on this gentleman's wager at TLS poster's expense?
1) You didn't win a dollar
2) We're not offended by the "softies." We're annoyed at your terrible reasoning.
3) We're the fucking idiots for letting this thread continue.
