I did a free online IQ test and it said I have an IQ of 153.... so my question is, what size font should I use when I write that on my resume? Is 24pt big enough or should I go with the 36?

24pt is fine, but with a statistic that important what you're going to need to do is print out the resume, line the numbers with Elmer's Glue, and then cover them with red glitter.

Does it have to be red glitter? Because if not, I could customize each one with the colors of the school I'm applying to for extra points.

I just watched this tonight again. You can't knock on whatever tactic that's going to get you in Harvard.

I would've been so fucked if the learner's permit exam had been used.....that question about dumping your animal on a California freeway was pretty fucking tricky!

dude, what.

a 1410 isn't even that impressive, and its at the 96th percentile.

a 168 is the 96th percentile on the lsat.

if you're scoring in the mid-160's, even if anyone actually did care about a curriculum based test that you took when you were 17, i don't see how an sat score pretty similar to your lsat score makes a point.

you people are all awful.

op- i got a 1410 sat, and was gainfully employed while studying for the LSAT. high 170s. no excuses. law schools (not to mention the "real world") don't like excuses. just bring the pain.

If you have to study for the LSAT you fail. Just quit. Go home. Bake some cookies. Then eat them. Now remember that you are a failure. Good night.
