Assuming acceptable LSAT score, would this be a successful road-map to T-14 admittance.


UG isn't curved. There's no special Ivy league curriculum that is harder than state school curriculum. Unless Harvard has magic-math and charmed-english. Why would those schools be harder?



Also. Criticizing people for going to community college without having any information on their background. I mean... Wow. And you people want to work in a service industry? I know it's the internet, but come on.


Some UGs are curved, other UGs have rampant grade inflation. It is really school- and major-specific. I imagine the same holds true for CC. So I don't think generally you can assume that you will get a higher GPA just because it is a CC - but maybe at some specific CCs it is easier to get As than others? I suppose that is something that you probably should ask students attending the specific CC you are interested in attending.

What I do know is that cost is often a deciding factor in choosing UG (as it should be). CC in general are less expensive than 4-year schools, and going to a local CC can really reduce overall UG debt (especially if you live at home). If you really want to go to law school, then I highly recommend trying to minimize UG debt. That may or may not mean going to CC for two years before transferring to a state school, depending on scholarship prospects.

If you go to a community college, you'll have that stain on you forever. Even if the trash doesn't rub off on you there, you'll be ostracized in college, have no friends/no frat. Without these things, you'll have terrible social skills and employers will hate you.

... I'm not sure whether or not this is meant to be taken seriously.

Don't worry guys, I have the holy grail of LS admissions....URM status
Surly I can weave going to CC into a wider story about being an oppressed minority person disadvantaged socioeconomically
Certainly I have the option of going to a four year, but the CC would be quite a bit easier

Is that some sort of racial epithet?

If it's not, it's certainly in the mix.
