And... Games: I re-downloaded Age of Empires 2, and discovered that time has weeded out anyone I could ever compete with. The only people who play anymore are professional AOE players I'm pretty sure.

That, or I'm old now and didn't realize it.

GOOD LUCK to everyone who's found out their make-up date, and watch out for burn out.

Not afraid you'll forget shit and lose months of study??


Unlikely, after a few drills and a PT, you should be right back where you started.

Seriously, this was my second re-take, and I took six months off between Dec 2012 test and Oct 2013 studying. It takes VERY little time to jump back into it. And it's actually pretty awesome, because you spend more time going straight into hardcore targeted review.

In my mind, I keep filing every date or deadline I see as "before scores" or "after scores."

Same here. I really wish we could get our scores on the 28th so I can know I'm wasting money sending an app to YLS.

As an aside, I found some stray logic games I used for drilling in my school folder and cast them into a fire immediately.

Wow. Just wow. It's actually remarkable how useless this article is. I'm almost impressed by the juxtaposition of its' length with complete lack of substantive information.

NO LIE.

I wish law schools would shift their focus to trying to perform well for the ATL rankings. SO much better and more useful, in my opinion; no ridiculous bullshit fluff like "number of books in the library" to boost poor placement numbers. As much as I love the library, in the 21st, I can't imagine choosing a law school based on number of books. USNWRWTF.

Law School Transparency did have a nice critique of ATL's rankings, pointing out that their system seems to produce an anti-NYC bias. But they are much closer to the mark than USNWR.

Also, saw that those assholes are releasing their rankings on March 11.

Any predictions?

I think Northwestern will fall one MORE slot.

Nah, ATL rankings are bullshit too. These are the only rankings anyone should be considering

PSH. Those complaints are just the newbs adjusting to test-day anxiety.

Personally I'm using the time to FINALLY see all 18+ hours of the Met's Ring Cycle.

Wotan FTW. Dude uses a rainbow bridge to get into his fucking house.

The night before the test, I dreamed that I was at Columbia ASW, SUPER conflicted about all of the amazing offers I had received.

I'm not even joking.

It was the BEST possible way to start out test day.

No, but I had an annoying dream that once again someone will create a throwaway account and come into this forum jerking us all around about the icons turning about 3-4 days before they are likely to turn...
