I'm truly amazed that no one has picked up on the fact that this is GermX's alt (the guy who made the GW vs. Fordham thread, then flamed everyone for being pro-Fordham while displaying hilariously poor judgment and reasoning skills).

In fact, its actually IN the OP's name. Durr durr.

I'm worried that, if I were to attend law school, I would be much smarter than my peers who attended schools with less qualified students (and therefore easier curves, etc). I don't want to be surrounded by morons

I know it might sound like I'm being "douchey", but in my personal experiences, students from state schools aren't nearly as intelligent as my peers in the ivy league, and I find it hard to believe that their GPA is equally qualifying. Any anecdotes are appreciated.


So I assume your worried about the the type of personalities/skills/predilections that law school tends to attract? Well at least law schools with a bunch of morons from state schools. ugh, damn state schools.


I liked this one. It reminds me of something...

A Dartmouth grad fucked me. Strike 1 against Dartmouth.

Wasn't 1FS though, as if I could be so lucky.

If you can't figure out who among your peers is a moron, it is probably you.

You will get a small boost at some schools, but you are still not getting Yale, Harvard, Stanford, or Berkeley. You are almost for sure rejected at Columbia and Chicago as well.

Penn will likely value your ivy degree, but we are talking 171 as bare min, but 172+ gives you a good shot.

Most other schools won't care much, but with a good enough LSAT you can get in anyway.

And if you can't beat that ASU student on the LSAT, who says you are smarter than them anyway.


Thanks for the information, I was under the impression that a 3.3 meant that I was entirely blocked from good schools. I'm not worried about the LSAT. I'm confident I can score 172+. Although I haven't started practicing yet, I got a perfect SAT score, and I assume there's a pretty strong correlation between the two standardized tests. Hopefully I won't have to worry about this issue anymore once I take the LSAT and get a good shot at Penn. Thanks

About that weight. It wasn't her body that made her TTT, it was her ugly face and personality. Excessive happy hour drinking FTL.
