Also, relevant: http://www.wired.com/wiredscience/2011/08/spoilers-dont-spoil-anything/


Come on, LSAT logic time. Just because a majority of people enjoy knowing the spoilers, doesn't mean I am one of those people lol :D :lol:
(B) Conflates relevancy of statement with statement being targeted at LS22. :lol:

I'm with you, though. I'm a sacred keeper of plots and avoid spoilers ritualistically.

Aaaaand relevant: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dM0AI5T4wYo [SPOILER: It's a Portlandia skit about spoilers. It naturally has spoilers.]


I'm just being difficult :lol: Thanks for the video :D :D

If I get one more automated marketing call from a 617 area code, I am going to lose it.

As if it weren't hard enough as it is spending all afternoon waiting for my phone to ring :(

I agree! I think the hardest part has been total silence. I know it would just give us more to speculate about, but I'd love it if they had updated under review statuses or something like that.

Still time for calls to start based on yesterday!

So there's a big snow storm that's about to hit, and it looks like Boston should be getting 8-12 inches of snow tomorrow. Winter is coming or something like that.

I hate to interrupt, but for the 7 people in the poll who are primarily reading law books in prep for 1L this summer, while I respect your dedication, I urge you to reconsider.

As silly as it is to feel crappy about an impending ding from Harvard Law...
I'm feeling crappy about an impending ding from Harvard Law.

eta: The worst part may be what happens when I try to talk about this IRL w/ folks who don't really get the mania that accompanies applying to law school. Usually goes something like:
Me: Ahh I think I'm getting dinged from Harvard.
Normal folk: Why are you sad? Didn't you get into XYZ schools?
Me: Yeah, but--
