That's lame. Don't post meaningless things just to get your post count up.

This makes no sense to me! Was it because I applied to late (complete in Jan.)? Any ideas?



It might be because you are below both medians?? This is some pretty crazy URM sense of entitlement. Flame on

Not gonna lie, I was kinda thinking that too... Maybe I'm wrong, but I never thought of law school admissions as ever being a guaranteed thing.

The botton line of all this is what you say and the figures you post on LSN can and will be used against you in the committees of admission.

Edit: Not saying that happened in this case... but it's very possible.

I personally don't know why anyone would post their precise figures....

I think the real lesson here is if you're a Costa Rican with modest numbers, just check Puerto Rican.

I hope Washington and Lee sees this precious comment also found on his LSN profile:
02/09/10
Realized that W&L waived fees for everyone this year. I know it' late in the cycle, but I applied anyway. Maybe use their scholy $ as leverage and HOPE that it's not the highest rank school I get in to!


EDIT: I would like to add that after reading this guy's LSN comments, I can no longer feel bad for him. OP reeks of douchery.

Maybe because Puerto Rican and Latino is not a race. Puerto Ricans are White, Black, Taino, mestizo and a mixture of all.
