IDK about your chances but I like the idea of an ADCOMM finding this post that features your very specific information and rejecting you because of your username.

Not auto-reject IMO. Low chances but worth a shot. I would change the username tho. It is fine to enjoy certain things; but, just enjoying them does not mean you should identify yourself by them or even sing their praises... your first lesson in professionalism and migrating into a professional world.

If OCI has taught me anything, it is that professionalism means quite a bit (probably surprisingly more than most people think). Not sure how heavy the URM status as PR helps OP here...I imagine it isn't a large a boost as other URMs get?

Why did you transfer twice? That is what seems worse than the username.

Also the fact that you clearly did much better at CC than Mt. St. Mary than UVA.

You guys are busting my balls. Transferring twice won't hurt me cause I have a good reason. Also it doesn't matter that I went to community college. The median GPA at UVA is 3.21.

Your undergraduate school doesn't matter, just your LSDAS.


I'm looking for Harvard mostly.

Hahaha this has to be a flame. If not you don't even have a slim shot. Your GPA is way to low, your LSAT is a little low, and even though it doesn't matter you couldn't even perform well at UVA in UG.

It's not a flame. I don't know why you guys trying to bring me down. You're probably just mad because I get minority status. I really only want to go to Harvard or Stanford.

Very small boost from PR minority status. Also, just from reading this, I would go out of my way to not admit someone like you. I hope adcomms reading this do the same.

If I retake LSAT what do I need to be a lock for H and S?

I have a hard time believing any of you. I think a lot of you are just spiting me because of the boost I get in admissions.

You'd better be a flame. We're off-put by your attitude. I'm a URM too so don't give me crap about your boost.

your gpa is too low to be a lock even with a 180 at H and you are unlikely to have a shot at S regardless of score. That said, a high 170s would give you a fighting chance at H. IIRC PR isn't much (if any) of a boost

Need a 174+ to have any reasonable chance with your stats. Retake if HYS are the only schools you would consider attending.

Worth an app to Stanford. You'll need to explain certain things and hope for the best.

Thanks my man but what about Harvard?

Median GPA of 3.74 so I'm slightly below but my LSAT is slightly above their 25th percentile. I thought I did just enough.
