Underdog Stories 2010-2011 Cycle

Postby Chants » Mon Nov 15, 2010 10:54 pm

I saw this thread from last year and it was fairly interesting:

Everyone loves an underdog story. So let's hear yours. Anyone get accepted to their reach school?

This thread is NOT for splitters. If you have a 175/3.2 and got into NYU, congrats...but we don't want to hear about it here. This is for those who are at or below 25% for both LSAT and GPA and/or have a less than 25% chance according to LSN.com.

Please include- school accepted, ED?, URM?, GPA/LSAT, and reason you think that you "defied the odds" (softs etc.)

This thread might be a little early in the cycle, so maybe we can start off listing numbers and reach schools with decisions pending...

Dude a 175/3.2 getting into NYU w/o ED, URM, or non-trad is pretty epic in itself.

I formally demand for the moderation and administration team of Top-Law-Schools.com to immediately investigate the "Chants" username. It is apparent that he works for either the Law Schools Admissions Council or a Top-Fourteen Law School and is attempting to collect application fees by instilling a sense of false hope among potential applicants in an effort to get them to submit applications and PAYMENTS to schools which they have no chance of getting into. Even worse, he is referencing incomplete anecdotal evidence in attempt to trick others. It must not be legal without disclosures. I hereby demand an inquiry.
