Hail Mary?

Postby krad » Fri Dec 17, 2010 1:19 pm

Did anyone else throw a ridiculously absurd Hail Mary app out this cycle with no illusions whatsoever? Here's to dreamin'!

Michigan. Ha! I'd regret it forever if I didn't :mrgreen:

Yep! Columbia and NYU! No chance in hell, but I've wasted money in worse ways.

This is what I was thinking, so I was curious to see where people threw them :)

I am a reverse splitter extreme.

My cycle is a Hail Mary.

I hope it does not end like Fredo's final one did.

If you're not getting a few rejections you're doing it wrong. Keep thrown' 'em, sometimes they connect.

165, URM, but essentially no GPA (foreign degree...) so almost any school where my LSAT isn't above median or 75% is anyone's guess. If the school actually cared about my grades apart from their US News ranking impact, it's 3.8-3.9 equivalent.

UVA= rejection

Columbia?
Harvard?
GULC?
ND...? (Top choice, if a stretch)

haha Hail Moses, awesome!

I have six. My LSAT score ended up being 6 points lower than my PT average making all the schools I was originally planning on applying to crazy reaches. I decided it was worth the money for a shot at a dream so I applied to them all anyway.

Haahvaahd.

Truthfully, I still have dreams of updating my facebook status to:

"Starrydreamz3 got into Harvard Law. What, like it's hard?"

The "into" will likely be replaced with a "rejected by". Regardless, the post will happen.

what has a better chance of hitting, a hail mary from the 50 yard line or a full heave basketball shot from full court

To be honest, I can't throw very far. My only hope of getting into Stanford is for something like this to happen:

Yes. 165/3.5. Vandy, Texas, Cornell.

Really, don't ask me why.

This was epic. As a Dolphins fan, I am just glad the Jets coach got called out for it.

Haha this feels like the healthiest thread I've read all day. Lol I can't seem to stop obsessing over the acceptance sections... what counts as a hail Mary exactly? Below both 25's?
