Yep, I'm in no way proud of it, but I'm sure it's in the bottom 5%. Like I said above, the schools' desperation is a big benefit for splitters like me.


Geez dude, he went to Harvard and he was sick while he was there. I am sure admissions counted that in as well.

So the lesson for splitters is to ride the waitlists to the very end.

Which one of those numbers is high enough to qualify you as a splitter again? I'm looking at awful grades and a slightly less awful LSAT.

The fact that the gov't will give loans to someone with a 152/2.21 is fucking pathetic.

Potentially not. Case Western was fucking desperate and I mean desperate for students. I got a personal call from the Dean begging me to enroll.

Actually made me sad a little bit.

going to be applying for 2012-2013 cycle with a 2.79 / 170, 4 years WE, and hispanic (not mexican or puerto rican)

i have any shot of an ED at UCLA or Northwestern?

edit: also, would it be a good idea to retake in October? I was scoring about 175 on my practice tests, but don't know if applying earlier than October or a couple more points on the LSAT would make more of a difference.

I think your best bet at the moment would be to ED UVA. If you don't get it Ed gulc. If you retake a 172 plus would give you a much better shot at NU.

Honestly, I've seen and responded to your posts in other threads. Stop trolling On-Topic stuff. These people genuinely want to help. Not only are you not funny, your undermining the advice given here. Either go to the lounge or get off TLS.

i don't think that's what i said, i was just pointing out of the fact that American University is a tier 1 school, the same tier as HYS, NYU and Pepperdine. Is it not a fact ? at least according to US News Rankings?

Go call some employers/recruiters and ask if they think American is in the same tier as Harvard and NYU. (Also, why the fuck did you include Pepperdine in there?)

Lol bro, get a grip. That characterization of American is a) irrelevant and b) misleading. We bash you because you're truly an awful poster.

I got lucky in the law school game in applying the year applications dropped.

Bro, with no offense intended, you're not a splitter. You need to get your LSAT up at least 10 more points to talk about being a high LSAT/ low GPA candidate.
