Get used to sentences like this. That's the type of writing in law school textbooks.
No, I understood. My point was that the sentence was ugly and poorly constructed. Any high school student could explain to you why many of your commas were unnecessary. Perhaps you should hire one as a tutor.

Are you trying to be a TLS salesman? You think Ken's going to name you a moderator?
Also, you're wrong about the "tough love" bit. TLS is tough but there is certainly no love in TLS. This site is just a bunch of number whores eager to fan their egos by knocking down the law dreams of anonymous posters whom they judge based on numbers and the schools they get into.
It's a shame that deluded people (like yourself) are going to be my peers in the legal profession.
Why do you continue posting on TLS if you hate it so?
No, I was not trying to be a TLS salesman, nor was I attempting to get noticed by Ken (or any of the other moderators, for that matter). I wouldn't want a moderator position if it was offered to me. I don't post here nearly enough to warrant one, nor do I intend to increase my TLSing significantly. But I've found TLS to be a valuable source of free
information about LSAT prep and the admissions game. Someone like yourself, who has expressed concerns about class in America, should be applauding TLS for making test prep available to everyone free-of-charge. You can rail on and on about how LSATs and the high price of prep classes reproduce class hierarchy, but I think TLS helps level out the playing field a little bit. You'll probably scoff at this, but it's true.
Sure, there are some elitist jerks on here who make themselves feel good by putting down schools ranked lower than the one they will end up attending. Conceding this point does not make any of the lower-ranked schools worth their tuition. John Marshall's tuition is at 37k. If you don't think that most people paying sticker at that school are being exploited, you are the deluded one. You can ramble on and on about elitism and continue making blanket statements about how spoiled everyone at the high ranked schools is, but it doesn't make the 150k worth of debt a Cooley grad took on any less burdensome or his job prospects any better.

Schools judge based on numbers too, for the most part. Forgive us for making predictions based on the data available to us. And most of the anonymous posters who have their dreams knocked down ASK for our opinions. Should we be telling 153/2.9s that they have a good chance at NYU? Or that attending Florida A&M at sticker-price is not a risky investment? What exactly would you prefer that we do?
