Skip ahead to 5:00 and duplicate that and you're in! :lol:


Bothers me so much how they say "LSATs" like it's plural. Even the pre-law advisor (I think that's what she is) says it as plural.

Edit: And then she goes from a 143 to a 179 :twisted: Gahhhh!


Is it sad that I recognize the logic game they're talking about while prepping for the LSAT @ 5:38?

Tone of voice is tricky with the written word. You win some, you lose some.

At least they gave her an LSAT score that was believable for admission. I've seen TV shows where the character is scoring in the 150s or low 160s and are told they have a great shot at Harvard. :roll:

Although, with a 4.0 she should easily be in with a 172-173, especially back in 2001.

Seriously. Add that 179 to her 4.0, and I'd say fuck Warner and head over to Yale

Oh yeah, the CDs one and the bread delivery one are the two LGs that stick out the most in my memory.

Assuming you can write a stellar ps, are not obviously and openly Republican, and are not totally lacking the common sense to put together a descent app, sure why not? But first you have to put up those numbers.


Does it actually hurt you if you are openly Republican? I was the Treasurer of the College Republicans and plan to get a job at a conservative think tank next summer.

He was more less kidding with that. It's okay to be openly republican (I guess), just don't spit your views in your apps

I was completely joking, I apologize it was not clear and if it caused any stress.
