If people had any respect for the law, they'd rat out any family member or friend who has ever watched a pirated movie, listened to pirated music, or played a pirated game.

Good insight all around. I didn't catch the "I'm sure I can pass all three" comment on my first pass, but it obviously wasn't uttered by an actuary, because he's not accounting for uncertainty (at...

And I think the "bright but lazy" stereotype is one that many high SAT, low GPA candidates should seek to avoid. A 3.4x GPA isn't slacker by any means, but it's not top notch, either; you're walking...

Agreed, if you're married, it almost doesn't count; it is a binding contract, after all. In any event, I hope you get that pole that you so desperately crave.

OP scores 120 points above the average Harvard SAT.
OP ranks lower than the average Harvard GPA.

Even controlling for populations there's some fallout. Not that hard, really.

Because that'll teach those entitled, erudite, East coast elitists, won't it? You really need to be less invested in this outcome.
