I guess the worry is that adcoms won't appreciate their inner workings being posted to teh intarwebz. They only fudge by a point on the LSAT and to the nearest tenth on GPA anyway, so I don't think it's a big deal.

Other people on there are flames - these are easy to tell. The black guy with a 152 who got into Yale, the guys who has a recommendation from Stephen Hawking, etc.

Other than that, no one knows how accurate it is, but there's no reason to think that it's not.



I think my favorite was the black guy with a 120 who got into Duke. It wasn't even believable what was the point of posting it?

This brings a few things to mind for me. One, I hope Asha really wasn't reading that shameful display, and two, that really does not bode well for my personal statement :P.

I switched the wrong "your" the first time :x

Never underestimate the stupidity of the masses. People look for evidence that conforms to their worldview and if they have a worldview that the man (in this case, minorities) are trying to hold them down, they will find evidence regardless of the credibility that supports it.
