So i know for a fact there is no "cut off" this thread is useless because the OP has not responded and i dont think they care anymore. All i was getting at it that if he played D1 football at a school recognized for football it would help because they want interesting people like that who stand out (as long as they have numbers as well). So yes i would say 3.9 D1 football, kickass resume, and a 160-162 your doin well for Emory and def Alabama (which is was over ranked anyways)


This is terrible advice. If OP applied with a 160-162, unless he's an urm, his chances at Emory are low.

I fixed that for you. I guess I should expect a little bit more from somebody planning on going into the law, but then again...you were a football player.

Oh? That doesn't seem to match up well with your other comments, such as:

jt1341 wrote:(where do you play football is the real question. Are we talking Alabama/Texas, University of Arizona, or crum state university)

If you play for a D1 school that is known...

...if he played D1 football at a school recognized for football it would help...


Surely, if they only wanted to pad their "bullshit diversity statistics", they wouldn't care what schools the athletes came from? Merely that a certain portion of their class is made up of D1 athletes?

I didn't say it wouldn't.

The fact that you treat "just sitting in the library studying" with such disdain highlights your insecurity towards those who worked harder than you in school, and your desperate psychological need to convince yourself that your skill at handling balls will somehow convince the adcomms that you're better than those two-eyed pasty nerds and their book smarts.

Like the triple threats of studying, studying, and studying that he'll be facing in law school?

This discussion is moot, because the OP already realizes he'll need a good LSAT score.

Yeah, but he expects to get it by telling the proctors about his 1337 football skillz. That's the problem.

Yeah, I know, but it's fun to play with the knuckle-heads.

"Diversity statistics"?

Please show me where playing football counts as a diversity stat.
