At least if a Cornell application was submitted on September 1, you know it was reviewed for Early Action, right? Meanwhile, USC intends to ignore many of the applications completely until mid-May. And who even knows what Emory is up to.


Emory: LSAT>166 = IN

not true anymore, at all.

why would you trade mcdonalds for law school acceptance in greatest country in the world. i can get mcdonalds in poland with same value meal as any where. mcnuggets are good but not as good as law education in U.S.A. i would not go through with trade if i were you.

I never said I would trade McNuggets for acceptance. I said a gift card, and I would use it for the McRib. Sure, the McRib is probably just a large McNugget with no crispy exterior, dipped in tangy barbecue sauce, served on an artisan sesame roll, but at least when you give someone $60 at the McDonald's drive-thru, you get something to show for it.

Uh, yeah actually I think it's pretty important to wait for the declines and waitlists to roll in until you make conclusions about what stats lead to auto-admission. So far, being equal to or over 166 means that you're likely to be (a) admitted (b) get no decision by late March. With very few declines and waitlists so far, I'm not sure how you can reasonably conclude from existing data that being equal to or over 166 means that you're automatically admitted.

He is just an atrocious poster. Some people have a bad thread here and there, but few people have this kind of consistency.

Oh believe me I know. I would campaign on his behalf as the worst poster on this site by a good margin.
