This OP is one of the most well-written I have ever seen in my many years of TLS-posting.

(1) Yes, hard-of-hearing qualifies you for URM—Congrats!
(2) Yes
(3) You would probably need at least a 170 to qualify for money at Stanford, Harvard, Cornell, or Yale. A lot of it is going to depend on the writing portion of the LSAT, but I have a feeling that you're going to knock that out of the park.

Good luck, OP.

+1

I think it would have been even better if he put it in all caps as if he were yelling so OP could actually hear him.

Dear <insert name here>,

You are being trolled because:

[ ] You posted dick pics.
[ ] You were just being a hipster for the sake of being a hipster.
[X] You did not use the search function.
[X] You think you are special snowflake.
[ ] You ask about your chances without an actual LSAT score.
[X] You are being a pompous ass.
[ ] You think that a TTT, under very specific circumstances including but not limited to planetary alignment, may lead you to success.
[X] You have no idea about what URM means.
[ ] You think LSAT measures intelligence.
[ ] You are a splitter with work experience and not applying to NU.
[X] You think your softs matter.
[ ] You want to have babies before or during your law school education.
[X] You think a perfect GPA as a Pol Sci major is impressive.
[ ] You feed from ambiguity regarding whether the hot girl you use as your avatar is actually you.

If you cease and desist the abovementioned activities, your life at TLS will become easier.

"The main reason for this is my writing skills"

"I had a TA explicitly tell me that I was one of the best writers she'd ever seen in 8 years of teaching".

"and with a 4.00 I figure people should be paying me to go to their school, not vice versa"


"Yes, hard-of-hearing qualifies you for URM—Congrats!" :?:

Seriously? I am surprised you didn't charge us to read your post. Please make sure you display this same attitude in your PS.

Through all the obstacles and successes in OPs life, one things became clear; he would sacrifice anything to be the best....anything, that is, except his humility.

Defiantly write a diversity statement about the hearing problem. The combination of your amazing writing and humility should make the T6 a lock with a 140 or higher.

With a GPA that high, I would think you would only need above average on the LSAT (151 or so) to have Yale throwing gobs of money at you.

Also, since there's no "hard of hearing" box on the application, adcomms encourage you just to check black. It's all the same for admissions purposes.

4. Forgot to mention, last summer I started up a profitable computer repair business from scratch, I did a landmark study on the conservation of the critically endangered California Braakron-Calderwood plant in the Sac-SJ River Delta, and discovered a completely legitimate cure for hiccups. I plan on writing a book on the latter of these. Oh, and I'll also have a letter of rec from a current SCOTUS justice. Will any of those mean anything?

Damn, I was really hoping OP wasn't a flame. Guess it was too hilarious to be true.

The main reason for this is my writing skills - I had a TA explicitly tell me that I was one of the best writers she'd ever seen in 8 years of teaching, so that's not just a self-assessment - but I obviously have a fair amount of intelligence to go with that.

I had a TA tell me that I was attractive and I proceeded to have sex with her. Does this help my cycle?
