Why does this sentence make me laugh so much? I can't quite put my finger on it.
And that her mom had a lunch with the dean for the sole point of discussing a very shitty applicant
You all can continue to be assholes and think that you know everything, but consider, if we're not talking about a T14, which we most certainly are not, it's entirely plausible that my mom could be friends with the dean of admissions and discuss a candidate whose numbers are sub-par. This is especially plausible in a city where the legal community is extremely small and tight knit. Clearly we're talking about a T4 school. My mother had lunch with her friend, because I asked her too because my friend had, thus far, only gotten into Cooley and didn't want to go. When I found out that my mom was friends with the dean at one of the two schools where she was held I asked if my mom would talk to her friend and she set up a lunch. Why would my mom do that? Because I've been friends with this girl since 3rd grade, and I wanted to make sure that even if she didn't got to a school that was leaps and bounds better than Cooley, that she didn't have to go to Cooley if she didn't want to.
Now, that said, the point was to say that UG can definitely affect your admissions because it affects how adcomms read your numbers. I'm sure you all will bring your wonderful brand of skepticism and asshole-ishness to this post like you've been doing.
