Discuss weird LSN accounts here

Postby Kimikho » Mon Dec 23, 2013 6:35 pm

post the weird looking LSN accounts and discuss. Preferably this cycle, as they are the ones that are noticeable.

http://lawschoolnumbers.com/runner3702
4.0/180

I know some 180/4.0 people, but they usually either hide their LSN or have more info in it than that. on the other hand, this would be one long con. Not on TLS by that name at least.

http://lawschoolnumbers.com/oly13
165/3.98/chicago today not ED

Doesn't appear to be a flame, but probably a mistake?

ETA: post flames and weird/sad/please-don't-let-that-be-me ones.

False. Needs an awesome gif first. Also, I tend to assume any profile that gives me hope is a flame.

Maybe oly13 had an exceptional interview? I mean that GPA could definitely carry someone above that LSAT with the right application I'm assuming.

I dunno. I'm not questioning the lsat, more the timing because I thought chicago hadn't given out any RD decisions yet.

Intervie date is before UChi was doing RD interviews. Maybe they didn't want to out themselves? Not sure. If they are telling the truth, they are ED.

Hmm fair point (not applying to Chicago, so not following the cycle). Probably a mistake then.

Gah. That's horrible. Here's to hoping he got off a waitlist, and just forgot to update.

I'm telling myself that's the case :]. it's kinda like swimming 14 events in the olympics and coming in fourth in all, though :/

thanks for giving me a mild panic attack bb


Yeah I had one, and briefly debated sitting out a cycle because if THAT guy didn't make it as a late applicant I am screwed.

I posted this in the October Waiters Thread, but it needs to be here too. This is the most depressing LSN in the history of LSNs:

the ones below 150 hurt my soul tbh. they are all so sincere and nice. it really opened my eyes to just how different this entire experience can be when you have solid numbers vs. those, or even just...T14 numbers vs. a splitter. it's a completely different experience, you know? like looking back it would just be this sea of rejections :(.

Welcome to my life, desperately trying to become a splitter. What sucks is my GPA is terrible by LS standards but I graduated with honors... It's definitely hard compared to someone with t14 numbers... But fingers crossed for my December score!
