As with undergrad prestige, law schools only need a handful of well-bred kids from HYP for the brochures. The rest of the class is comprised of mules with high numbers.

Just my guess

Most law schools have been repudiating interviews for years, claiming that they can learn everything they need to know about an applicant from the picture attached to his/her LSAT admission ticket. A good rule of thumb is to spend 15 minutes for every hour of LSAT prep staring at yourself in the mirror and trying out various pensive squints to make yourself look as capable as possible to adcomms before getting that picture taken.

Why do you think people visit the schools in person they are interested in attending?

Obviously to "retake" their poor photo performance on test day.

This is also why HLS is phasing out their phone interview process in favor of Skype. Law students literally cannot afford to be ugly.

I retook just because i didn't like my photo. Good thing they only take the best looking one. I think Yale does take them all into "account" though.

Yup. It's actually much more important than your LSAT or GPA. That's why I didn't even study for the LSAT and in fact just spent a lot of time fixing myself up everyday and retaking the picture many times to make sure my best angle was captured. At this point I'm pretty sure im gonna get a full ride to just about any law school of my choice.

My body's only a 3.2 but there's a clear upward trend. Do you think adcomms will notice?

Probably but you should at least attach an addendum with pics of your biceps so they can see the before and afters.

There's a joke here...I just cant find it.

EDIT: Yes, they do, you'll probably want to write an addendum with a new photo showing your true potential.

Too late?
