I'm sure that's not absolutely true if you have almost nonexistent softs.


I have a 3.8 GPA and a 175 on my June LSAT (that's right!!)


But my softs......oh my softs .........

I've done 2 yrs of govt. work (working as an assistant at a ministry)

and VP at a debate club and was in the school orchestra.....

and that's it.....


i haven't been able to get anything to do for the summer yet cuz I was sick and in the hospital....(nevermind that)


How much do you think those softs would hurt me for my chances at

Harvard?


Plz give me some insight......


You'll be hurt far less by your softs than by your propensity to use douchy internet slang like "plz".

what's wrong with "plz"? I've never ever been criticized for this before...

I don't understand this "I don't have softs" talk at this time of year. Look, even if you submit your application early (say, end of Oct.), you still have four months to spend developing softs. Get off the internets and go help an old lady cross the street. No seriously, go do something substantial.

You're talking about applying to Harvard Law School. It's time to start typing like a big boy.

And enough with the goddamn extended ellipses..........

You don't know where you are, do you? Did you mistakenly wander in from a misleading google link?

I don't get this one.....can you update your resume even after you submitted? ( I guess, before it's completed though right?)

you are.......

lacking in the softs department......

most think it makes no difference......

however...........................

if you are really concerned, then........

perhaps you should do some volunteer work.....

maybe you can help disabled kids learn to ride bikes.....

maybe......

you can fix bikes for disabled kids..........

you understand my point?........

softs aren't that important, because.........

it's easy to get/fake them......

have a nice......

day.....

plz....
