  •  But it's so much easier to make stuff up (8+ / 0-)

    Don't have any transcripts? Make up a GPA. Heck, make up an acquaintance of Obama's, and make up details about HIM.  I'm surprised they didn't make up this random guy's reaction when pretend Obama "told" him he had been admitted to Harvard Law.

    Then there's the fact that you don't get to be President of the Harvard Law Review by way of affirmative action.  Here's what Wikipedia has to say about the competition:

    Membership in the Harvard Law Review is offered to select Harvard law students based on first-year grades and performance in a writing competition held at the end of the first year. The writing competition includes two components: an edit of an unpublished article and an analysis of a recent United States Supreme Court or Court of Appeals case. The writing competition submissions are graded blindly to assure anonymity [my emphasis]. Fourteen editors (two from each 1L section) are selected based on a combination of their first-year grades and their competition scores. Twenty editors are selected based solely on their competition scores. The remaining editors are selected on a discretionary basis. The president of the Harvard Law Review is elected by the other editors.

    -7.75, -8.10; All it takes is security in your own civil rights to make you complacent, and we are all Wisconsin.
