Tell us what's important to you
people who scored in the 160+ should be LIVID that someone below the 50th percentile got in ahead of them
Semi you have nothing to apologize for
the 152 is private but is URM. If you have the right skin tone you get in easier. Its ridiculous. I have to hide the fact that im jewish because we are so overrepresented in law school. Equity = discriminating against the high achieving group.!
Sour and Gaul, grow up. Law school is not about making friends, youre going to be in for a rude awakening, its only happy go lucky below the median. Many people at the top will actively sabotage others for sweet ranking points. Someone with a 152 getting in here is being set up to fail. On top of that what justification is there for someone scoring in the 47th percentile to have a spot over the 80th percentile? another 154 got in too. Hilarious. Rant over. None of this was to be mean. Its truth,
@Semi: Good luck at USC bro, youll do great. FSU is on some weird shit this year.

@FlutteringSqueamishPuffin: thank you! Really didn’t mean to offend anyone incredbly
Semi

Sorry if I did

Damn well good luck in law school with no friends and grudges against minorities <3

Can’t believe I have to say this but your LSAT score isn’t the only aspect of your application. Although I’ve yet to hear back from FSU and I hope to get in, I’m very happy that they took a chance on someone who got a 154 (and 152) and accepted them. Someone’s ability to be a successful lawyer shouldn’t be solely decided upon their LSAT score. You have no clue what people go through and how hard they had to work to get where they are
14:18
Chalking up their acceptance to the fact they’re an URM is so incredibly shallow
for the love of God
They are 13 points below the median
Youre both very immature
14:21
If you wanna talk medians, youre below both but at least they have high GPAs
14:22
And you’re 5 points below their LSAT median. Glad we can both read. You think you shouldn’t be accepted because you’re not exactly at 165? Your application is worth more than one score dude
14:23
All I’m trying to say is don’t be so spiteful about other people’s accomplishments. Focus on yourself and make the best possible application you can. That’s all
14:29
Also Gaul I’m well aware lol. Out here trying my best 😂🤙
wtf is all of this lmao
no ones attacking the 152 or whatever personally i bet they're cool, it just sucks watching someone with that score get in while others arent
you can simultaneously be happy for them while feeling frustrated slightly at your own position
I wish i majored in something easy like buisness management, best piece of advice i can give is avoid stem unless you want IP law.
even going to a school that gives A+s can make the huge difference and it's unfair
if my UG gave A+s I'd have been accepted I guarantee it

Business wasn't even that easy of a major. My Comm friends had a much easier time getting a 4.0. Acing accounting and finance was a bit difficult.

Early business classes funny enough are what killed my GPA - like the beginner accounting Econ etc.
