Is it commonplace for an adcomm to tell you in person what your scholly award is? Seems like most schools keep that stuff restricted to the mail.


I was surprised she told me, apparently the scholarship committee had met the same day I visited. I have to say I was pretty turned off by the committee waiting so late to send out the decision letters. No worries though, I decided LSU wasn't for me after my visit.


Why was that?

I was much more impressed with the facilities/atmosphere at FSU (I'm still on hold there) and being from FL thought that Baton Rouge was very similar to Tallahassee. I guess I would rather not leave the state to go to another Tallahassee if that makes sense.

chimes was delicious though

Those sounds like good reasons. Are you just going to ride out the wait list at FSU and if you don't get in re-apply next cycle?

That is the plan. I didn't take a prep-course for the LSAT so i'm hoping if i sink some money into testmasters or powerscore i can raise my score up significantly. Good luck to everyone at LSU

Testmasters FTW... went from a 150 to 165...(even hit 170s 3 times in practice tests)

FWIW, since we're all unmasking at this point, I guess I should let those who care know that I'm a part of the FB group and my name is Chris Moss. I feel better now that I've gotten that out of my system.

That LSU shirt in your profile picture is so damn bright. Every time you show up on my news feed I get blinded by the goldness. :wink:

Boiled is the way to go. Don't mess with the fried crawfish...shit is nasty. Stick with shrimp if you want friend. Just my opinion.

Yeah helped me get into LSU. If I could have got 170+ on the real deal I'd have a few more options lol. Oh well, I love Louisiana and LSU.

I thought about retaking in December but didn't feel like dealing with the 5 hour mind fuck again.

Yeah, I was all in when it came to LSU. I know that there are admissions officers that prowl forums and FB to see where students are leaning when it comes to grad school. The gold is close to maize, so I thought that I would rock it for a little bit. As for the crawfish, you're absolutely on point with that. I had some fried crawfish awhile back and that shit was terrible. When I tried to get it at Chimes, they told me that their stock was low and that they had to take it off the menu. I was so pissed off I almost walked out, but the drinks were good and I knew the rest of the menu was straight.

Yeah, I thought about doing it all again and adding one of those classes, but realized I would probably end up staying in-state anyways. Not worth sitting out a yr or putting all that effort in again.

The main question: "But come one, I wasn't that bad was I?"
Well, since you asked, there are two main things that made your game very obvious, as well as makes guys like you very easy to spot and look out for, as you suggested I do in the future.

#1- The "Pretentious, yet Interested" Face
This look is a classic face used by many a guy when trying to pick up a girl. For individuals looking to be able to identify this face, I have placed a helpful diagram below.

--ImageRemoved--

#2- Asking for my email under the guise of "You currently go to LSU, and I might have questions..." in front of the Admissions Staff where saying no is basically not an option.

Ending with your last statement. Being cute and a type A personality would be considered a compliment, if they weren't included in a thread where you talked about wanting to socialize (read: fuck) female law students, bring 5 women back to your hotel room, as well as hook up with me. So, the cons overwhelm the pros in this thread, making your "game" a lost one.

I decided not to attend LSU. I did not like Baton Rouge and do not see myself building a life in Louisiana. UM was my only other option, and since it is a ridiculously expensive one, I decided to wait and apply to other schools in the fall. I wish all of you the best of luck in your educational pursuits and hope that my scholarship will into good hands.

That isn't quite the face I made. I'm surprised you have devoted this much time to this issue when you could have easily let my comments pass, and knowing who I am now, when/if I decided to attend LSU and sent you an email you could then let me have it.

Now I don't ever remember saying I wanted 5 girls back at my hotel room. Would have been nice, but I don't remember pulling that number out and saying that on my trip I wanted to get 5 girls back to my room.

In terms of hooking up with you, it was because of your looks and personality. So again, not seeing how it is such an egregious insult. I could tell you wouldn't slut around and that I would have to devote some time to get to you, hence why I bothered to only ask for your email. Again, not sure how that is an insult. I never said I wanted to get you specifically back to the hotel room, just women in general.

If I really did offend you this deeply then I appologize. That is not something I do lightly to women but you seemed decent and worth while enough that you are worthy of respect, again why I never bothered to get you back to my hotel room.

Good thing there was a wedding reception at the Hotel to keep me entertained or I would have really felt like I struck out on the entire trip.

What do you not like about Baton Rouge or LA in general? The school does place some in Houston, likely as a result of the petrochemical companies in LA.
