General Off-Topic Board / When should I cut my hair?
« on: January 29, 2005, 12:58:17 PM »
I have had long hair since my junior year of high school. And to be quite honest I would like to keep my long hair for the rest of my life. Unfortunately, I feel that BIGLAW will frown upon my own distinct style. So when should I cut my hair? (I am leaning on cutting it after my first interview where I will straight up ask if my hair will hinder my job prospects).

Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / In at Michigan

Just got word today. Anyone else who was admitted know if scholarship offers came with the acceptance? They are my number 3 choice.

Edit: My personalized note referred to a lame story in my local newspaper about my 179, which makes me feel like a tool.

General Off-Topic Board / Are black inventors really overlooked?
« on: January 17, 2005, 01:40:08 PM »
All throughout high school I was taught time and time again that their was some systematic plan on behalf of white society to down play the role of blacks in every day inventions. It seemed that the entire month of February (I know it is Black History Month) turned every class into a 50 minute diatribe about how blacks invented this and that. But I always wondered, are these inventors over shadowed because they are black or because no one really cares about inventors.

Evidence no one cares about inventors: Philo T. Farnsworth (a white man) invented the non-mechanical television, but by the time of his death was forgotten by society.

Law School Admissions / The In-State difference
« on: July 09, 2004, 10:14:05 AM »
How much of a difference does being an in state residence make. Specifically at Michigan.
Would an in-state 3.6 (Mech. E.) with a 171 be pretty much a guranteed admit?  Or just have a good shot (50-60%)?
