What the fuck is the point of pointing out how many are in the top 10% of the class?

For lobotomized motherfuckers who are incapable of multiplying class size by 0.10?

Why is UCLA in the T14 section?

And what is this supposed to be pointing out?

Alright, keep judging. I think it's interesting to have all the schools next to each other like that instead of looking them up individually. No need to be rude.

I agree that the OP is taking more flak than he/she deserves. IMO, this is the same as the other threads pointing out a school's LSAT and GPA numbers. It provides info in a concise format for easy reference.

Maybe providing the 10% number was overkill because people applying to law school should be able to multiply class sizes by .1, but at least it provides every schools' total class size in one thread.

OP also made this thread: viewtopic.php?f=10&t=169083&p=4864554#p4864554

If anything he deserves far more flak than he's got so far.

Two things...

One of bk1's posts:

"If you want to be a good lawyer, you should be more worried about penis size and less worried about height."

Also...

That forum bk1 is referring to has over 250 replies so far
