Ladies and gents it looks like we picked an abysmal time to apply to law school.


Hey Bud, I saw that you posted this on a few threads. I appreciate the insight and I know your intentions are pure in trying to help us assess our chances, but some people on these forums do not need the added stress. I would suggest you add some additional info (softs, time of app, no mention of GPA, impact on T14, etc) to this article to keep those numbers in perspective.

Happy Holidays, buddy. Thank you again for the link.

Retweet.



I just wanted to share this interesting piece of news to as many people as possible. If you are triggered by something as innocuous as this, then maaybeee law isn't the right career for you. I also don't see how my adding additional info would help--i didn't write the article!

But anyways I only have love for all of yall so lets all stop being offended and im sorry if I added to your stress. :cry:


There is a difference between being "triggered" and annoyed about having the same article shoved in your face in 5 different threads. We can't do anything about the odds this year, so how is it helpful?



in hindsight i would have posted it in the general tls 2021 page, but i didnt know that existed until like now. i just wanted to share the info with as many people as possible. again im sorry about "shoving" the article in your face multiple times

about your last question, i think TLS isn't for you if you think we shouldn't post about things out of our control. This entire forum is literally the definition of being neurotic and commiserating collectively about forces we cannot control.


Friend, I'm totally with you on the collective neurosis! Minding that, just a gentle suggestion not to contribute to it with the same frantic post all over the forum.



not to beat this dead horse, but i already apologized for not knowing we had a general tls21 forum. please read carefully. im also new to tls so i thought that multiple postings were the only way to widely disseminate something. have a good day fam and buy yourselves a mimosa or two this morning :D

All the buds, buddys, and friends being thrown around in this thread make me not want to apply to Stanford. Who talks like that? Lol.

Also who cares if the article is posted in multiple threads. Some of y’all are ridiculous. Keeps the internet entertaining though. I loved the “don’t post the article anymore unless you tell us your softs” line!

SLS is my top choice of course. It's just that I haven't been paying much attention since I know my chances are not that great (172/3.96, KJD, no strong softs). Do you think I can still send in the optional essay? Already being a not-too-strong applicant, I don't want them to dismiss my file for not showing sufficient interest... Has anybody gone through this? Should I just give up hope..?

Went complete on 11/01. Yea it's been a while.. fml lol..

Just FYI I got in last year with 173/3.98 KJD so you have a very competitive application. I didn't submit an optional essay. And yes I'm paging through this forum as a post-finals activity..

Also dinged on KH. Hope SLS still wants me so I can meet the cancer-curers who got in though!

Also, did your status checker change at all prior to the call? And/or has it changed now?
