Help us make LSD better!
Tell us what's important to you
potato is out here shredding kids like its a cravath email chain
I work 60 hour weeks as well, double majored, did some other t1/t2 things i wont publicly disclosed and still pulled a 4.0/180 ;)
[] WhisperingWillingBoar
Potato and Himmy are both idiots and probably underachieved so they have fake stats that they use lol
Whatever you think is adversity. Trust me. Theres people out there with better stats and more advertising overcome
I didn't even say anything but I hope that makes u feel better lmfao
plz keep listening to spivey 17lo
Im not gonna lie. A lot of people criticize himmy and potato for speaking the truth. There is always someone out there that can replace you
Whether you can accept reality or continue to live in la la land is up to you
is boar advertising tutoring with a 172 lol
you’d think for all that bragging about your work ethic you’d have something better to do with your time than attacking people’s lsat scores @potato lol
tbh that is pretty good advice, you never know who else is out there in the applicant pool
that should be a ban lmfao
Nah potato has an alt, bro spoke in the third person, so pathetic lmaoo.
@onetimesignin it really doesnt matter, people score 170s off the rip with no studying. They are just built different, you gotta accept that there's level to this. Thats why I'm not applying anywhere near the T8 i know not cut out for that. With a 154 UT is gonna shred you.
I don't like that mentality. u can always do better but yeah with a 154 and no proven academic merit he will have a tough time
Thank you wavy. Maybe he will listen from someone else. But yeah totally agree w your point
Or he can learn the hard way in a few weeks

Himmy didn't you say applying after October 20th makes no sense and those people should sit out the cycle like yesterday?
Himmy I'm not saying you cant out work someone smarter than you but theres only so much you can do
@WhisperingWillingBoar: no
i mean you can always retake for a higher score then apply the following cycle
i dont trying for a higher score automatically means that it being late after oct 20th is contradictory
Hey Potato I figured you knew this (since you have 180/4.0) but when you refer to yourself you can use the words “I” or “me”, unless you meant to send that other message from your alt
Potato thinks youre dumb
Potato has an alt and he's using it to hype himself up LITERALLY SO EMBARESSING
dawg im just tryna fill some info in and this potato guy has me dying laughing
lil bro is red in the face right now stammering at the keyboard in tears
u guys are so stupid
do they think I'm potato?
