Me: "That sucks, what was the score that you were shooting for on your first attempt."
Guy next to me: "150-155"
what did you say to him? i think i would have a hard time disguising my "you should NOT be going to law school" look.
you realize this is the average person that takes the LSAT, right? don't be so snobby. maybe you'll be working for him someday.
and btw i never got a 150-150, or near there, on a practice test if that's what your thinking.
my whole pt is be proud you have a gift, but don't be a dick over it. if your goal is $ and power, keeping your pride to yourself will work much better for you. the dude has a goal. be supportive. social skills 101.
Um, your little story is inherently snobbish. It treats one's perception of 150-155 as a punchline. Outward snobbery was covered in 101, but snide comments and hubris is a more advanced course.
