WEWT! (in Off-topic)


QBOddBird July 7 2008 3:49 AM EDT

Just got back my LSAT scores, and I made a 159. Not as good as I'd have liked, of course, but WEWT! Good enough for law school!

I don't mean to brag or anything, but it's 3 AM so I can't tell anyone and I just _need_ to! :D

"The 50th percentile is about 150; the 90th percentile is around 164"

You're not doing bad at all. My GRE Math subject test I got 770 which somehow scraped me a 83%. And I call myself a math major...

PearsonTritonRaveshaw July 7 2008 4:38 AM EDT

well... I scored a 175!

P.S. Congrats. =)

Was that PSAT or LSAT? ;)

Congrats, 'Birdie. All about the public service, yeah?

PearsonTritonRaveshaw July 7 2008 4:54 AM EDT

Law School Admission Test is much different from the PSAT =P

AdminG Beee July 7 2008 5:06 AM EDT

I have no idea what either an LSAT or PSAT is, but you seem to be happy about it so congratulations and well done :)

PearsonTritonRaveshaw July 7 2008 5:25 AM EDT

LSAT is the Law School Admission Test. If you pass, you can enter law school (just like the name suggests).

PSAT is the Preliminary Scholastic Assessment Test which is intended to help prepare students for the SAT, which is a test given to people who wish to get into college. It is the second thing that colleges look at when accepting students, the first being GPA.
The SAT is similar to the ACT, however the SAT is mostly found in California, and rarely in any other states.

This concludes the Raveshaw's Training Test for the Underdeveloped Persons of Mage Blender, or RaTUPoMB (pronounced Radibomb) for short.

Gratz, buddy... I'll call ya if I need someone sued ^^

Lochnivar July 7 2008 9:21 AM EDT

Nicely Done OB!
I believe the term is 'Wewt' (or is that Woot?!? stupid hooked on phonics)



Incidentally, "If you pass, you can enter law school" is something of a gross simplification since it really is not a pass/fail type of test. Raw scores run from 0 to 101 and then get slapped on a bell curve from 120 to 180 to establish a ranking system.
How appealing a law school finds your application to be is also dependent on your transcripts and application. And the quality of the law school you apply to.... for enough tuition money I'm pretty sure you can find someone who will take you if you 'fail'.

Good God, can you imagine OB as a lawyer. Every loophole in the book!


Good stuff mate!

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] July 7 2008 9:23 AM EDT

woot! grats.

Lochnivar July 7 2008 9:36 AM EDT

Of course we must consider the important things here:

If OB becomes a lawyer we are one step closer to 'Booty Dancing' becoming a valid legal defense. I think we can agree that everyone should support OB on that quest.
(and Booty Dancing is more likely so save you in court than in prison, right?)

"Gratz, buddy... I'll call ya if I need someone sued ^^ "

I own the word "buddy" and would like to sue Caly for infringement, hit me up via CM :P

btw, Congrats dude (hopefully dudemus doesn't own that word... o.O)

Congrats! You're now qualified to be the devil!

Is it sad that when I say the title of this post I was expecting a Wall-Enchanter-Wall-Tank build to be proposed and discussed?

And congrats on the LSAT! I love Canada, no standardized testing!

Yes, it is sad! =P

AdminTitan July 7 2008 4:22 PM EDT

Congrats OB, good luck in Law School.

Lochnivar July 7 2008 4:51 PM EDT

Xenko, you still have to write the LSAT to apply to lawschool in Canada.

It is a fun test though (at least I enjoyed it, and there a lot of pretty girls who take that test).

QBOddBird July 8 2008 12:48 AM EDT

Thanks everyone :) I'm still pretty pumped about it.

...didn't know that Obscuran! 5 points away from the 90th percentile....now I'm even more excited! :)

DrAcO5676 [The Knighthood III] July 8 2008 3:29 AM EDT

Congrats OB! Now we can form Team Awesome and get away with just about anything ^_^ and have a valid defense.... "Booty Dancing"

BooDiggens July 8 2008 7:13 AM EDT

Congratulations OB!

/me strokes your pleasant pheasant pheathers.

And Raveshaw shame on you for using someone else's gloat post to say you did better. I'll give you more attention next time were in chat. You OBviously want it.
