It's only been uphill from there. You're a fool if you aren't using LSN as a part of your resume.

People live or die by LSN around these parts of town. You can make up for every T14 denial with 14 tier 2 acceptances. I have no intention of going to law school. But I am hoping to at least show my LSN during my next job interview. I've been applying to law schools every year since 1998. Yales gonna bite eventually.


Obvious trolling is obvious, but...

Way more subtle/successful trolling (taking obvious troll is obvious seriously), if this was actually trolling. But its probably not.



Anyway, how true is it that UVA WLs so many people because they aren't writing "why UVAs"? I always figured it was because they filled up a bigger proportion of their class with ED applicants so RDs, even with great numbers, got wait listed (compared to MP). I visited there and really loved it, but don't want to be stuck with applying ED (and almost certainly getting in) vs RD and having no shot.

I'm not trolling.. I'm just a newbie. It's naivety I suppose. I promise :D

I'll clarify so there's no confusion as to my intent.

I was joking, hoping it was obvious enough that no one would take me serious, and mostly blowing off steam here instead of on my status checkers. Copecetic?

It's okay, everyone's just on their periods or something.

Is that what happens? People spend so much time TLS they synchronize their cycles?

It's okay, everyone's just on their periods or something paranoid waiting on acceptances.

I've never understood the obsession with Why X's. I put thought and research into them, but for the schools that I didn't actually visit or talk to students from, the whole process took no more than a couple hours, and one of them took 15 minutes. I don't see why this gets schools to think you're serious about attending when all it's really showing is that you're being responsible about not half-assing your apps
