Great idea OP. Too bad those douche bags never explained why they had a bad cycle. There has to be a reason. C&F issues? I think most profiles are real. Some people just are real unlucky. I bet some lower ranked schools thought they would never attend, so they YP'ed them.

In all seriousness the fact that you can make a fake LSN shouldn't matter here.

Bolded got Columbia with 25K/yr with a 175/3.6. How is that really bad? Isn't that as about as good as that dude can do with that GPA? I had a 174/3.56 (multiple takes) and got shut out of CCN.

This one is bad, but maybe not terrible (170/4.0):

This one certainly could have been better (176/3.85):

Knowing this information would be tremendously helpful for future applicants. I bet a lot of these guys just "mailed it in" with their personal statements and overall applications. They thought to themselves: I have great numbers; therefore, I do not have to try at all with my apps.

180 3.97 seemed to have the worst luck so far. Would've thought U. Chicago and Berkeley would have tried snagging that person. Do you guys think the super high LSAT and GPA hurt this applicant for schools below HYS, for YP?

So, based on this assumption (which you pulled directly from your ass), you call these people who had admittedly rough cycles given their numbers, douchebags. Yeah, good for you, champ.

Yeah I went back and forth on whether to include it because of that offer. In the end I decided to because 1 T14 with those numbers is absurd.

It's like Berkeley enjoys being unpredictable and random. That URM has such a nice GPA and LSAT combo.

I think YP is somewhat overstated on this website. To be clear I think it absolutely exists and happens somewhat often, but TLS makes it seem as though ever candidate who gets WL or ding where they are at or above both medians is a YP. Not so. The process is hugely numbers driven, but adcoms do turn down people for things other than numbers.

All I am saying is that these people benefitted tremendously from the information gathered on LSN, and they could have returned the favor. I am not happy at their misfortunes. I feel real bad for them actually. They worked very hard for those numbers and didn't get what would normally be considered reasonable.

Bai was a poster here and helped a lot of people out. She wasn't a douche. Search her info before you start making broad proclamations about what sort of person she is.

Leaving this one off because they didn't update to completion and it was during a fairly competitive cycle.

Not quite bad enough.

Almost positive white PR doesn't get a boost...

Topic for another thread but I think Berkeley doesn't get enough credit for being holistic. The most holistic school out there (yes, more that Y or S IMO).

Could we may chalk this up as someone said something stupid on the internet and move on before the thread gets hijacked?

There is a guy on TLS who has like a 3.9 and three LSAT scores (155ish, 165ish and a 176ish). This guy came to TLS to ask for advice as to his chances at YHS. It would be nice for him to come back and tell everyone what happened with his cycle. It might very well be true that most of the T-14 doesn't care about retakes, but this might not necessarily be the case with YHS. If someone has used TLS and LSN to benefit themselves, wouldn't it be nice for them to return the favor for future applicants?

Not really sure what the point of the thread is, other than torturing yourself, but fine. I'll let it go.

On a website where people make posts about the C&F issues of getting fired from work for masturbating in a broom closet I feel like this is a fairly useful thread.

I for one would like to get an idea of what the floor is for various numbers.
