They probably read the over both median students even less than crappy students. Probably just Cntrl F for the N word, and check to make sure none of the boxes about crime, or plagiarism are checked, and let them in.

The more he is questioned the more intriguing his responses become.

her/his LSAT was not below median in many of her/his applications! If her/his LSAT really was 171!

OP, if your law school exams turn out anything like this thread (and some of your others), your law profs probably won't spend much time reading either.

1) Because you paid for it

2) GPA/LSAT aren't sole requirements. Remember?

1) You paid for them to "consider your application." Not read every portion word for word.
2) Just because they aren't the sole requirements doesn't mean that combined they can't control whether or not you gain admission to a school.

To be a US Olympic gymnast, knowing gymnastics isn't the sole requirement. But if you can't do gymnastics, you better believe you won't get on the Olypic gymnastics team.

The point is: that's why bare minimum requirements are bare minimum requirements. You have to meet them for them to consider the rest of your application. If you don't meet the bare minimum requirements, there's no reason to continue with the rest of your app and waste your time, their time, and other potential student's time who are waiting for their -more qualified- applications to be reviewed.
