At the one I attended, he made a point of leaving before the end, before the "meet and greet."



Yes, I would probably linger outside the room like a stalker.

I admire your gall and overall arrogance. Someone who is seriously willing to show up at the Dean's door unannounced and say "come get some, I want in" has a lot of what the Spanish call.... cojones

honestly though it could be one of the most absurd and foolish ideas I've ever heard in my life...

I hate to be such a debby-downer OP, but you have no chance at GULC. In fact, I would seriously recommend against going to law school. With your GPA and LSAT you are most likely not the right person to succeed in the profession. Sorry.

Actually I think it's you who most likely won't succeed in the profession. Who's to say that my GPA and LSAT scores aren't tainted because of a full-time work schedule? Overlooking simple connections like that won't get you anywhere in the profession. Just saying.

And I think waterman was justified in trolling this thread considering the topic is lulzy and the person who posted isn't new to TLS and should know better.

Backed out. I found out I got into American while I was there so that kind of took the edge off.

How does a full-time work schedule make someone score a 153 on the LSAT?

Cure cancer, write a Pulitzer winning bestseller, and kill 150 Taliban with only the contents of an MRE, and I would say you have a pretty good chance of GULC.

They already traced your IP and found out where you live. If you look outside right now you can probably see the black van that they are surveiling you from. I would watch what you say and post from now on, they've got you on notice.
