Anger at Florida Coastal for declining my offer: DAMN STRAIGHT.
Anger at USF: Not really. Honestly, given my numbers and background I really think it could be a mix of increased apps + YP. I might go with a decent scholarship and just to say I went to the same school as Acosta. San Francisco is a plus. (But you do have to look at USF for what it is)
Anger at TLS posters for giving what looks like mostly unreferenced, unqualified opinions: Mostly disappointment. We're college graduates (I think?).
Anger at you for sensing anger: SUPER PISSED.
Well, anyway, it sounds like your stats should have gotten you in to USF, especially with a 75% scholly at NYLS. As much as we exclaim that "X lsat, and X.X GPA make you auto-admit", while we have the "oh, my softs and PS will make me special and get me in despite my numbers".....we also forget that sometimes people get rejected/WL'd that should otherwise be in. Just how it goes.
I can't wait to figure out what I'm doing and get the hell off of TLS. Although there is a lot of support and information here, I've found it be a hotbed of elitist assholes concerned with nothing more than imagined prestige. I know the profession is full of that, but in the real world I can actually compete.
Best of luck to ya!
