Hahaha, how did she like that?
My boyfriend keeps telling me to "be patient" about scores. I AM NOT GOING TO BE PATIENT ANYMORE.


My SO is less patient than I am. She keeps asking me if the icons are gray.

My husband keeps telling me the same. Easy for him to say when he took the GMAT and got his score immediately after the test.

People literally walk around with a forked stick and use the stick to find water, oil, etc. :lol: My stepdad really likes Western movies so I had to watch those a lot as a kid, so I guess that's why I know what it is.


But... how? Like, how does the stick change when there are/are not resources nearby? What is it about the stick that indicates direction? It doesn't make any sense!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Didn't you read the RC passage? The whole point of the LSAT is to learn about dowsing, weren't you paying attention?


No.

Principalagent knows how karma works. I'm not going anywhere near that poll either.


My coworker is a hardcore Buddhist. I have liberated soooo many spiders from my home/car into the front garden. All life is precious, etc, etc. Does karma count if your good behavior is for selfish ends?

Same with my husband. He called me from work 1/2 hour ago to ask if they were gray yet.

My deadly combination of neuroticism, ADHD, and general impatience is not exactly favorable for these kinds of situations. I'm the guy that tracks my Amazon packages every hour.

Asking for a friend.

LSAC saw this message and can tell you did not learn the valuable lesson on dowsing...120 for you. :P

But seriously, I agree.

It's been a while since I read the passage, but is it possible a "skilled" dowser can recognize geological features that would indicate water beneath the surface. I'm not a scientist so this could be waaaaay off. Just curious.

Honestly, I think there's a 65% chance the scores get released today. Our mental models for predicting the release date are probably a bit overfit to the past data. Articles like this:
http://blog.powerscore.com/lsat/when-wi ... prediction
gave a 0% prior probability of the scores being released July 6th or later. Surely it's possible that the scores will be released then. Gotta use those fat-tailed distributions, not underestimate the level uncertainty in the world, extract the signal from the noise... blah, blah

PLEASE, Lord Testy, release the scores today. The community may not be able to withstand another day of this. :cry:

Oh hey, just realized we're in LSAT score territory. At the moment, guess the average will be 134.

re: that reddit post.

How TF are people still referencing that orangutan question? It legit was one of the easiest questions on the exam. They better not have removed it from scoring. I want need all my points

The last two June waiters threads were 414 pages and 275 pages.

414-275 = 139. One third of 139 rounds down to 46. 46 +134 (current page) = 180.

It's done.

School's cannot see where you applied, although on your application they will ask you where you applied. You are not required to answer this question. They are notified of seat deposits on like June 15th or something, though.

Only apply ED to Northwestern, unless you are a super splitter uninterested in schools 20-14. Then you could consider throwing an ED app to like UVA if you have like a 2.8/178 split


Being international I don't know how much a "splitter" definition would apply to me, however I was thinking to apply ED to NU and GWU: DC would be my first-ish area of interest / I'm aiming for politics - international organizations / looking for double degree (MPA/JD?)...

GWU with ED scholarship would be a great place, I think, with these hypoteses
