Sorry for replying so late!!!
Thanks a ton to everyone who gave a serious response
And to everyone else, wow.. I didn't know my post would be dissected so thoroughly. It's an internet message board.. I didn't think what I said would be taken so seriously.
I'm not an arrogant person. My original post was only to stress that I really think I can do well on the LSAT despite my grades. If you must know, my sub 3.0 GPA is b/c I was at a point where I was suicidal. I was at a point where it was very difficult to carry on my daily life.. so attending class and handing in assignments became incredibly difficult. What I did turn in received strong marks, but absences and missed assignments took a huge toll on my grades. I had a string of C's and D's that killed my GPA. The issues I suffered and still suffer from to an extent make it really difficult to do my best work.
I only stated that I'm "brilliant" really in an attempt to plead my case I guess.. I'm sorry if it came off as if I was arrogant and thought I was better than anyone else.
I know where I got into undergrad tells nothing of my level of intelligence. How grammatically correct my posts on this board are also mean very little. On that note, my preference for law school is not dictated by a rankings list.
If such things meant so much to me, I would have went to Harvard or Princeton instead of Columbia. I just want to get into a good law school. If I really am "brilliant" the rest will take care of itself, right? (
But once again, thanks SOOOOO much to those who helped me out. I'll be taking a practice test soon to gauge my ability and if it looks good, I'll study my ass off. If not, I'll rethink my plans.
