The most insane law school related lie you ever heard...

Would any intelligent person - regardless of ethnicity - waste a 165 on Cooley?

With like...a 2.1 GPA, sure.

Maybe a ditz would, but he shouldn't be practicing law.

You guys really want TLS to know just how not racist you are don't you?


Or, strangely enough, maybe they really aren't Stormfront members.

Is he from Michigan? Did he live at home (no living expenses)? It seems like someone with a 165 LSAT would have the intellect to do extremely well grade wise at Cooley. How did he place in the class? Which bar exam did he/is he taking?

You guys all seem to be confusing intelligence or test taking aptitude with common sense and social functioning. I know certified geniuses, people with perfect SAT scores etc..., who can't get it together enough to put a matching pair of socks on and brush their teeth, let alone put themselves in positions commensurate with their level of intelligence.

...who also happen to not be able to apply context. Why did OP bring up ethnicity? Is it because he's a horrible racist (ethnicist?) who means to imply that those of some ethnicities are less wise than those of others? Or could it possibly be that--as every single TLS poster knows--the admissions/scholarship value of a given LSAT score varies by race/ethnicity due to URM bumps?

You don't need to have common sense and social grace to take a law school exam. There's evidence that lsat scores (taken with ugpa) correlate with law school class rank:
