A mortgage broker trying to get me to refinance my fixed rate to an ARM (with virtually no savings):

Him: My son is gonna go to law school. He wanted to get an MBA, but he failed the GMAT.
Me: how'd he do on the LSAT?
Him: 135


Oof, I wonder how poorly he did on his GMAT.

I was afraid to ask

Ooo, that is hilarious. I'm going to start wearing thirty items of Greek paraphernalia (from thirty different organizations) every time I'm on a college campus with Greek life, just to piss those kids off.

Being an alumnus wouldn't make sense is she was a she. A "she" should be an alumna.


Damn. I should've known that.


Common mistake - I feel that it is my civic duty to correct it when I see it. At least you didn't say she was an "alumni."

The rule:

Alumnus - a single male graduate
Alumna - a single female graduate
Alumni - a group of all male or mixed-gender graduates
Alumnae - a group of all-female graduates

Now you know, and knowing is half the battle.


If this was ancient Rome, yeah, maybe that would fucking matter.

I doubt you would anyway. I'm nerdy and not particularly attractive (not to mention not blonde): I have no value as a human being to people in Greek life.

Ew, I probably should have worded that better. "Use". :lol:

Oh, I thought of one! Another not-quite-at-the-LSAT-but-relevant:

After my last score came back, I was pretty devastated, so I didn't tell anyone (I didn't even tell my family what I got for weeks). I was talking with a friend, who I thought was not particularly bright but not a rock. He wanted to gauge how I did, so he asked me, "Did you do as well as I did? I got a 142."

He wasn't kidding. :shock:

Too funny. I have friended you based on this exchange. I'd actually like to see someone trolling like that on a campus! I bet some bros would go crazy. But honestly, you'd be surprised. There are some pretty nerdy/intellectual folks in Greek life. At least when I was in undergrad.

By the way, completely off topic (not like this Greek life convo is, right?), but what would you consider the most dangerous LG. I'm drilling the 20s and I'm ready to pour myself some whisky.

I don't know. Do you have the world's fuzziest beard? ;) Guy had a very, very fuzzy beard.

Haha.

I actually think the interview/hiring/out group with Fu and the other guys was the hardest. There were no real good scenarios or big inferences, you just had to plow through it.

I'm ignoring all the ones that don't show up anymore like mapping games and circular/table games.

Oh, I like that game! I've done it like thirty times.. It's one of those games where you feel weirdly proud of yourself if you can plow through it quickly. Wish I had seen some in/out grouping on test day; that game had me so ready!

The movie game from PT 27 with Hitchcock, etc. was sort of tough the first time I attempted it. This was before I discovered Manhattan's board system. I sort of just sat there drawing and erasing boxes!

In retrospect, yeah. I think what threw alot of people off was the fact that LSAC almost never combines tiered ordering with in/out. Seems like they're going to be doing that for the foreseeable future to make a game hard (combining types that generally aren't combined).

If June '13 was representative, and I think it is, I think we may be past the era of killer games. It looks like they're tending toward 4 moderately difficult games (Oct '10 as an example) as opposed to a few real easy ones followed by an insane one (June '09, June '10, Dec '09). So, the section will still be as difficult as it usually is, but in a different way.

When did this become the June waiting thread? Take this stuff back there and give us more funny stories here, please.
