I wrote VISA NationalCity CheckCard.

There's no way I'll be admitted.
You might not get accepted, but the upside is that you are not only bringing a ton of laughter to the TLS community, but to our friends, families, etc., when we tell this story to everyone we know. Hilarious.

I have a 3.3/158 (applying p/t) so hopefully they'll just toss it in the "not even going to read" pile.

Haha. Wow - genuinely surprised at the reaction. Maybe my purpose in life is to make an ass of myself for others' benefit? Finally, my true calling.

Kind of reminds me of when a roomie wanted to apply to the Masters in City Planning program at MIT. He said he wrote in his PS he wanted to study under one of the iconic profs there (Kevin Lynch). I told him Lynch had been dead for about 10 years. His reply: "OK, shorten the list!"

You just made my day, sir or madam. I might be able to concentrate on finals now instead of law school.

So I'm curious as to when you realized your mistake? Didn't you proofread your application?

"True in both life and law school admissions, one should take greater risks when the likelihood of success is lower."

What you did fits perfectly with Kens advice. Maybe they'll throw some cash your way too so that you don't have to use that Visa so much.

Most T1 schools are Mastercard people, so this could potentially come back to bite you.

Communicate now with those who not only know what a legal education is, but can offer you worthy advice and commentary as you complete the three most educational, yet challenging years of your law related post graduate life.

Wow, this is like the first post of this nature that people have not really called BS on. I guess we all just want it to be true so bad. I would admit you, assuming it was a joke. The only thing I can think is that these forms are all official and stuff, and you are meant to be serious and truthful, ect. I highly doubt anyone would be a big enough tool to make something out of it, but meh.
