This says to me that my massive amount of useless time on this website assures I kick ass in LS.


This is the conclusion I come to as well.

I had a CivPro E&E that sat in my car for 8 months does that count?

You are right. People are probably too embarrassed to admit they didn't make top 20%. IN AN ANONYMOUS POLL.

I don't think people are lying, I think its just self selection in who fills out the poll.

It makes sense that the majority who respond are in the top 20%. These people have reason to believe they made the RIGHT choice on 0L prep. Those under median would have no motivation to respond to a poll like this. 0L's may want to know what DIDN'T work, but the people who did the wrong thing, or just don't get it are probably not real pumped up about announcing it.
