I'm sending it in just a few hours. They're going to have a lot of emails on Monday, I think.

To be honest, though, I don't care whether I get the scholarship. I just want the acceptance and am trying to turn off that flashing-yellow YP light over my head.


Are you actually interested in going to Chicago or is this all an exercise to prop up your fragile sense of self-confidence?


+1; are you for real, Managamy? Do you realize that your actions affect others?


If all of you are just buddies with managamy and are just joking with him then just disregard the following:

Managamy isn't in this for others. Managamy did this for himself. He didn't take the LSAT with "others" in mind. He didn't work hard in school with "others" as his focus. He didn't spend the time putting together his applications and sending each of them so that "others" would be affected positively. Managamy is in this for Managamy, and if he wants to see his application through the process, and if he believes the reward for his hard work is an acceptance to a place he may never attend, then good for him.

He is doing nothing more than reaping the rewards of hard work and I don't believe it's anyone else' place to judge his intentions, motives, or actions. I know everybody would love to have his numbers and the opportunities that come with them, but we don't. It's not his fault that the rest of us can't get into places as quickly and easily as he has.

Congratulations, Managamy, and if you want to, you can keep all of your applications open until the withdrawal deadline. You've earned it.

No one's saying that he doesn't have a right to see his applications through to the end. It's just that a lot of people think he's obnoxious (see above post) and don't like him... Which is their right, too.

Yes, I think so, except for someone else with the same academic record, etc.

I agree that a) he is obnoxious and b) people have every right to dislike him, call him out for being obnoxious, etc.

That said, I do think that some people on this site actually believe that he should withdraw some of his applications or that he shouldn't try to get in places he wouldn't attend on account of the fact that other people want to get in/go to those places. That was my point.

Yeah, I hear you. And I don't think he's morally obligated to withdraw or anything. I actually don't give two shits if he withdraws, as long as he eventually withdraws from the school I'm going to (except he hasn't gotten in yet... ooohhh snap).

I think I've been pretty clear about not having an issue with anyway you choose to manage your cycle. That said, however, have you considered the potential implications of your TLS unpopularity on your irl reputation at wherever you end up?

Love the avatar.

Agreed dude, maybe it's a good idea to tone it down. It won't be that hard to identify you, and I can tell you that I absolutely loathe some IRL folks based on their obnoxiousness/douchiness on forums like these.

:lol: I Googled it.

None of my worst haters know me in real life, talib, so I'm not too worried. Besides, they'll have forgotten all about me in a year or two anyway, once we're all caught up in law school, internships, etc.

lol absolutely hilarious if you're for real and someone with your credentials just learned what the Golden Rule is a few minutes ago. But, I'm glad I could turn you on! I've found it's a good one to keep in mind and is widely applicable. Best of luck to you.

edit: oops, the first sentence of this post is itself a Golden Rule fail. We all mistakes.

edit: "we all mistakes" should be "we all make mistakes" lol

I hadn't heard of it under that name and didn't realize that it was such a formalized concept.

It's probably time to get this thread back on track, though, and discuss something other than myself. Therefore, I'm heading out of here for a while.
