I'm ready to reminisce. Man, aren't humanities classes with exams the worst? Papers are where it's at...choose your own reading and all that. Christ, I really don't deserve to go to law school...


Ha, I still managed to fuck up my GPA. But I actually preferred exams, I had a English minor which fucked up my GPA a little bit. If I had done straight soc, or soc/psych I would have had a lot more As. I picked a bunch of English classes, when I hate to read. Real smart...

I don't get it. You got a 150 and you're complaining about your GPA holding you back?

Anyone in their right mind would admit the 3.7/158 over a disgusting 2.7/150.

Any NFL team in there right mind would draft Giovanni Carmazzi and Chris Redman over Tom Trump Supporter Brady... Oh wait...

You go cry to mommy about how the world is screwed up. Me, I don't got time for that shit. I've been screwed too, but I'll adapt and learn to play the game. That's what separates the boys from the men.

You failed at UG AND you failed at preparing for or understanding the LSAT. What makes you think you will succeed in law school?

It was a joke, dimwit. I find it patronizing in the extreme for Bill Gates to say that "life is unfair." No fucking shit! I don't need a multibillionaire to remind me of that!

Adapt and play the game? Jesus, are you even 15 yet you little punk? Spare me your bullshit machismo.

Sociology was interesting and I figured just about all the humanities would give me the same job prospects (pretty much none) so I might as well enjoy what I was studying.

Also a 3.7/158 over a 2.7/150 is an absolute no brainer.

Well some people do..
Dimwit? Little punk? You think your words hurt me? Are YOU 15 yet? I'm not tryna put you down, just tryna give you a good lifelong philosophy. You adopt this, and you're one step closer.

How did I fail at UG?

I graduated and got a job in my field


Since when is the LSAT a Pass or Fail test?

My score was right around the national average.

You're not too bright huh? Poor thing..

You're not gonna make a lot of friends around here by using LSAT logic in your posts. At least you'll demonstrate your superior argumentative ability for us proles, though.

I'm really not trying to make friends on these boards. I consider myself to be a Robin Hood type. My goal is to prove to the world that a person with average/poor numbers can be a great lawyer.
