haha, just needed to get the board going.  i can't have a blank subject.  when's orientation for emory?  how's the city?

orientation BBQ is next wednesday evening, and orientation starts the next day.  So far I love Atlanta.  I needed a big city, another reason I decided against iowa.  So far I've done a little sightseeing, unpacked alot of my *&^%, and tomorrow i'm taking a friend to go see the Atlanta Symphony.  Think I'll be hitting some ghetto clubs this weekend.  But there are sooooo many Indian people everywhere.  I had indian food for lunch today.  The campus is tiny though compared to UF.  Its like the entire Emory campus would fit on UF's golf course or maybe its even smaller than our old lake.  I guess its a good thing though.

I think you can say this about Southerners in general, and Midwesterners. The pace of life, and thus the people, are much quicker in the big cities along the coast. Except maybe Berkeley

you asians are boring. c'mon! lets get this thread started! how come the black student discussion thread is up to 30 pages and the asian treads can't even break 2?

so are you guys set on finding a school where you'll have many asian peers or is that factor not that important?
Title: Re: Asian/Asian-American Discussion Board
Post by: NYKnicks on August 16, 2004, 08:10:28 AM
I don't really think finding too many asian peers is all that important to me, but then again I'm mostly applying to DC, Boston, and NYC so it'll end up that way anyway.

How many asians are on this board anyway?

Dewitt you look like one of my friends, damn why does everyone on here look like someone I really know.

hell no...there is no such thing as an anti-pasty credit.  there is no such think as an honorary asian title.  thats something that an asian tells you to get you to shut the @#!* up.   ;)

question for asians:  how many of your communities look down upon the profession of law?

most desis I run across have a quizzical look on my face when I tell them that no, aunty, i'm not going to medical school.  i usually don't bother to tell them that my undergrad was in engineering, because then they would immediately ask why I "switched" and I'm not too interested in answering their suggestive, gossipy questions.

oh, but of course, its ok for a desi female to go into law.

Post by: NYKnicks on August 16, 2004, 10:25:35 PM
yeah man, I did engineering as an undergrad too. I'm not sure I get looked down upon, but they always wonder why I want to stray from the golden path of engineering. Then they say they hope I don't sue them...I dunno.

regardless of the factor, the fact is asian are usually over-represented as a % of the population in law school, although this doesn't ness. support that more asians means stiffer competition, the general sense is that the presence of large asian population in a given law school is a good indicator of tough competition.

hey desiguy,

I love the expectations of all of us becoming doctors.  I didn't care either, but it wasn't as bad in Utah as I thought it would be. My mom always wanted me to be a doctor but didn't care in the end as long as I get into areally good school (damn pressure). Honestly I don't even care about the "traditional" desi community. They are backstabbing bastards who have nothing better to do (keep in mind I am only referring to my community.)  Eh well I wonder how similar a pakistani community and an indian community is.

yea, but shopping is never cheap.  i hate shopping personally.  burma or myanmar i guess is pretty bad.  i was reading some articles while I was in India about how corrupt the government is and how desolate their future is.  after we invaded iraq, the junta pretty much told people that they should not get hopeful because that will never happen in burma.

Oh, please - everyone knows hands down that HK is the best place in the world to shop!  Nothing comes close.


I loathe all the Asian cities that have become too touristy - like Bangkok.  Also, my friend was in Colombo, SL, not too long ago and they wanted her strip-searched for a bomb!  Not going there any time soon...also, I always get harassed when I go to Tibet, so that sort of detracts from the beauty of the visit...hmmm - Guangzhou is horrible (poor Gummibearz).  Otherwise, I pretty much love Asia!  So beautiful, so much to do, so much culture and history!

- how did the whole korean/american deli owner idea get started?  what possessed early koreans to open delis?
- how did koreans start the whole 'dry cleaner owner' stereotype?  why not something else?
- why are 90% of all dunkin donuts owned by indian people?
- in nyc, why are a vast majority of the carry out mexican places owned/run by chinese people? (what we affectionally refer to as 'chexican food')
- why do 99.9% of indian people have facial hair? (mustache, beard, etc.)
- how come some indians people have indian accents when they speak english, while some sound like they were born here with no accent, even if they werent?
- why do japanese people have such crazy hair and thick legs and jacked up feet?

Asian American movies are always pathetic - pomp and circumstance with no substance.  Only Asian-Asian movies and Anglo-Asian movies are worth their salt.  The only slight exception would be H & K Go to WC. 

Interracial dating?  I hardly ever see Asian girls with Asian boys anymore - except desis.  I see lots of really attractive Asian women with not so attractive white men.  And lots of sort of slutty Asian girls with black and latino guys (myself excluded - I'm not slutty).

This was a feeble attempt at answering some of Maryanne's questions.

I'm very angry and bitter tonight because I'm sick of the LSAT.

I have no qualms with interracial dating as I am often a part of this category.  However, it does piss me off when I go back to Asia and any random white guy thinks he's game in my book just because he's white - like that's all Asian girls live for.  No thank you, step away - I do not need white man to save me from perils of the world.  I do also despise Asian girls who think they're great because they've managed to land a non-Asian guy - yes, like that's hard after former observed point.

Actually, it is a sickening phenomenon.  Many Filipinas who come from poverty-stricken villages into domestic work in HK will end up marrying some white semi-well-to-do fat bloke as a ticket out.  They call Sundays in HK "whore day" because that's when all the domestic help have their day off and are said to be scouting the city for husbands.  So sad.  Actually, in some ways, it's sad for the white guy too because the girl will marry him, gain citizenship somewhere and some of his money, divorce and then marry her sweetheart from the village.  Oh well, such is life, I guess. Ha hah aha.

Never ever said my girl has to be Asian, in fact I'd actually prefer her not to be.

Never ever said my girl has to be Asian, in fact I'd actually prefer her not to be. I was just talking about the men in Asia who don't have much of a choice but to go Asian, or maybe they do, but, yeah. And anyway, no I think non-Asians understand the culture fine, no big deal, I have no preference really.

I do. I like Korean girls

Since I now consider you a friend, I will let you get away with such insults.  HEHE, just kidding.

You are right, that is quite interesting, considering I've NEVER been with one before.  But you know, I mean there are you know, certain pressures on a Korean male to end up with a Korean female.  And though I don't want to give in to such pressures just for the sake of them, I do have this curiosity towards Korean girls.  So I guess in a sense, NOT having ever been with one makes me want one even more.

Do you get it?

Um, Duke and UNC might be described in books as "small town USA", but greater research triangle is 1 million plus highly educated culturally diverse people.  Its certainly no NYC or anything, all you're not talking genuine small-southern-town either.  People that move there from other regions always are amazed at what NC can be (then they drive through the eastern part of the state on their way to the outerbanks and see what they were expecting to see in NC).

san francisco - tons of chinese immigrants.  i think they have hmongs as well.
LA - koreatown.  enough said
nyc - lots and lots of koreans and chinese people.
chicago - are there any that arent white washed?
vancouver - i heard there are a lot.  i hear they have one of the cleanest chinatowns in the world (if thats even possible)

any other candidate cities?

tough call to say who has the most, but I'll come out firsthand and say that vancouver was the first place with chinese inhabitants in which the streets did not have that greeen gunk flowing into the sewers. Very nice place, highly recommended.

With nuclear bombs to blow us all sky high.

It's depressing, and it's senseless, and that's why...

I like Chinese,
They only come up to your knees,
Yet they're always friendly and they're ready to please.
I like Chinese,
I like Chinese,
There's nine hundred million of them in the world today,
You'd better learn to like them, that's what I say.
I like Chinese,
I like Chinese,
They come from a long way overseas,
But they're cute and they're cuddly, and they're ready to please.
I like chinese food,
The waiters never are rude,
Think of the many things they've done to impress,
There's Maoism, Taoism, I Ching and chess.
So I like Chinese,
I like Chinese,
I like their tiny little trees,
Their Zen, their ping-pong, their
yin and yang-ese.
I like Chinese thought,
The wisdom that Confucious taught,
If Darwin is anything to shout about,
The Chinese will survive us all without any doubt.
So I like Chinese,
I like Chinese,
They only come up to your knees,
Yet they're wise and they're witty, and they're ready to please.
I like Chinese,
Their food is guaranteed to please,
A fourteen, a seven, a nine and lychees.
I like Chinese,
I like Chinese,
I like their tiny little trees,
Their Zen, their ping-pong, their yin and yang-ese.

This may be a dead thread but I'll chime in.

Because Asian women are a sexual commodity. They benefit from being sexual fetishes. Small size, uber feminine features (small chins, no body hair, age relatively well, viewed as passive, compliant and easy to dominate sexually, small breast are evocative of youth, blahblahblah).

Attraction is all perception.

Race, and the importance of race in people's minds is utter bull.



I beg to differ about the no body hair part.

You could take the asian part out of this equation and it would make just as much sense. Women, in general, have finer features and can do more to make themselves more beautiful (ie: makeup, hair, clothes) and care more about their appearance. Men are more visual, so it makes sense that women need to be more attractive, comparatively. This is a broad generalization but, from my experience, it seems to ring true. I agree with Stroopwafel about the fetishes with asian women. Women don't really have as many fetishes as men, at least not in the same way.

Personally, I tend to find more asian men that are better looking than say, white guys as a whole. Scratch that, I mean Asian-American. There is a strong difference between asian men in Asia and asian men in the States. For me it's a respect issue. Many cultures around the world don't have the respect for women that I desire so the way I'm looked at in China, for example, and how I'm looked at in the States influences how I feel about the men in general.

This is nice, I was trying to be stupid but I got some decent serious responses.

I do agree with your general sentiment that women look better than men. Were I to turn female, I would consider turning lesbian. Anyway, in all seriousness, I find your respect stance particularly interesting, nobody really explained it to me from that point of view. I do see what you're getting at though, but in all seriousness, Asian-Americans are probably also slightly more attractive since they grow up learnign to care at least a little bit more about appearance. Backn in China, that mantra, at least among men, is severely neglected.

Yes, I often reply seriously to people that aren't being very serious but it is an interesting topic. The guys in China are starting to care a little more about looking good. I think that comes with capitalism/consumerism/pop culture.

Post by: Stroopwafel on October 03, 2004, 10:56:56 PM
Totally.

But the point I think with EShaker's question is valid and the ramifications suck.

Caucasian, Latin, and African-American men and women are portrayed with equal vigor in marketing their relative attractiveness and sexuality.

Whereas Asian women are considered by the media, and the average consumer as much more attractive and sexually viable then the Asian male.

Quick name 3 Asian males that are sex symbols on the same footing as an equivalent Asian female sex symbol. And I'm talking same sexual impact that crosses cultures and nations?

Name an Asian male that was on the cover of a magazine for the purposes of being an attractive sexual commodity?

Name an Asian male that is used in a film as sexual window dressing?

Asian males in Western countries (and even in Asia) are simply not sexualized.

So the messsage is if Asian males are not going to be considered sexy, and have no role models on which to base their sexual attractiveness on then why bother?

Maybe with media becoming more diverse this will change. Not that helps any.

Yeah, all the names of guys I can think of also are part white/black/hispanic. In movies where the main character is an Asian guy (at least American movies) I haven't one yet where the guy got to even kiss the girl in the end, let alone do anything else with her. Well, okay, the ones I'm thinking of include non-Asian women as the love interest. I think there is a slow change happening though. There aren't alot of Asian roles out there in American movies/TV for main characters that don't include martial arts. It's strange because the Asian-American population is growing, you'd think Hollywood would catch up with the times.

Hm that's pretty interesting Kristy.  Do you think most guys here in the US don't treat you as well?  Or, I mean do you think most Asian-Americans would treat you better than most white guys here in the US?  

I'm asking 'cos a friend of mine actually told me the other day more or less the same thing, that he thinks he would prefer marrying a non-American sometimes because the values are different.  Not to diss any American women by any means or anything, but he was saying that he would not want to tell any of the women he was dating that he was going to law school, at least not until he got to know them well and trust them, because, apparently, he had a lot of problems with women wanting to date him just for "the money."  (I know, that sounds lame 'cos most guys probably would actually welcome something like that, but he was being honest.)  His point was that non-American women seemed to care more about how he treated them, whether or not he'll take care of them, etc.  Plus he wants to really find true love (he's a good guy), and he thinks that our culture teaches us to be so materialistic, especially in the law.  So that's why he was thinking about marrying a non-American woman for her values.  And so I could see (I think?) what you were getting at, about how Asian guys or other types of guys that grow up in cultures that respect their elders, parents, etc. might be a good thing.

Anyhow sorry that was probably a mouthful. ;)

You only exist in Hollywood if you are commercially viable.
People (women) pay attention to this. And what do you think it does for the relative self-esteem of the Asian American male. Especially when the only "Asian" sex symbols are part something else, usually Caucasian.

What about "The Replacement Killers" Chow Young Fat and Mira Sorvino. He is a total bad-ass, and she is uber sexy. Tons of sexual tension, and they do not even kiss. Asian males are only acceptable in stereotypes, non-sexually threatening roles.
Chop-socky, algebra, and "Dong, where is my automobile?"

Gobears, Good questions. I have never dated anyone who was not American. Never really had the opportunity. I've had one Asian-American boyfriend (I've only had a few boyfriends) and he treated me worse than the others. Point being, I don't really have a preference one way or the other. It completely depends on the person and their values. Guys in the US generally treat me well, regardless of their race, but I still get the lame whoops and hollers from idiots when I'm running :) Guys in other countries can be very gentlemenly but that doesn't mean they have more respect in the long run.

I think it's interesting because I hear so much about these women that are looking for money and power in a guy. I don't know anyone like this but guys complain about it alot. Maybe the reason I don't know women like this is because I have mostly lived in areas that are more rural and money is less important, in a way. When I lived in LA, it was a completely different story. Money and status are everything to alot of people there and I couldn't stand it. Some people care more about your area code than your personality. Since you are in the OC, mabye it is like that there too? If this is the case, I can see why your friend is worried about it. To sum it up, I think that it isn't necessarily and ethnic issue as it is a regional issue in the United States. Where you come from, how you grew up, what your values are change even within city limits.

The first time I noticed this was actually in "The Replacement Killers" and then after "Romeo Must Die" I was really irritated. They were supposed to be the modern Romeo and Juliet but where was the action? As a woman, I want to see them hook up. I felt cheated at the end of "Replacement Killers". I mean, it's lame that I'm so used to the guy and the girl hooking up in movies, but now I expect it and it was really strange to see them just look back at each other and that's it. The stereotypical roles are ridiculous. Have you seen "The Perfect Score". While I found the movie funny, I was annoyed that the only Asian character was a complete goof off, comic relief. Granted, he was funny and didn't play off any horrible stereotypes but definitely not sexy or serious.

There was an episode of Las Vegas where they had a definitely sexy and serious Asian guy play a conniving rival casino host who fevered up one of the white girls on the show.  As for it happening again in Hollywood, I wouldn't hold your breath.

Thanks for responding Kristy!  That's really interesting.  And that's a good point about how it depends where you're from and how you were raised and all of that rather than it being an ethnic or whatever thing.  As for me, yeah, I think it's because I live here in SoCal (and was raised in OC, as was my friend), and so sometimes we feel bummed 'cos of what you said, how people down here seem to be all about money and status.  Plus, being really close to Hollywood probably doesn't help. ;)  Anyhow where were you originally from, if you don't mind me asking?  'Cos women with good values (like guys) are hard to find around here.  We might need to move to where you were originally from!  LOL.  But seriously, that's why a part of me really would like to go to a more rural school sometimes, like back East or down South, just to get away from it all for a brief period.  Of course, SoCal is still home to me, so I don't think I could ever really "leave leave," like for good, but it would be nice to experience a change of pace, ya know?  Okay, well, it's way late so I better head off to bed, see you later.

Gobears, people with good values are not easy to find anywhere. Human nature is the same, the cultures differ. I'm a Chinese, growing up without knowing that money and status is important, which ignorance partly explains why I have good values. Anything has a price, including the wonderful good values. Chinese guys are not very gentlemanly toward women, especially those guys with money and/or status. Maybe this is not a completely bad thing. They are being so mean because they are considering finding a life partner. Casual sexual relations are still  not encouraged in mainstream Chinese culture.

Gobears, Chinese women have begun to slap the mean guys. Nowadays, 70% of the divorce cases are raised by women in China (according to VOA).

Some of the mean guys eventually turn out to be good husbands. They don't ask you to sign a pre-nup, they don't humiliate you with affairs. As time goes by, they become nicer and nicer.  :)

Post by: KristyB on October 05, 2004, 09:24:26 PM
Well, I think I'll respond to Mary's points first and then answer your questions Gobears.
Mary, what kind of things does a "mean" guy do? Where did you grow up in China? My experience has been a bit different from what you describe but I am an outsider only speaking to those who grew up here. From what I understand, money is very important here. It represents a better life. I have friends that say their parents will not let them date people who do not have enough money/status. I also know that low paying jobs are looked down upon. This is not the China of 30 years ago, it is moving towards a capitalistic society.

As far as guys that are "mean" being loyal and not cheating on their wives, you can find a nice guy that does the same. You can find these guys in the US and in China. I have met a few very kind Chinese men that are not womanizers and seem very loyal and trustworthy. I can say, from experience, that it is not wise to wait for a mean guy to become nice. It usually doesn't happen and fidelity is not worth putting up with this crap. Sorry if I sound harsh, but I feel like the less that women allow themselves to put up with, the less men will dish out. It goes both ways. I had a mean boyfriend and he was very loyal and also very damaging to my self-esteem. Not worth it in my book. I can find a nice guy that is also loyal and looking for a life partner.

Gobears, I am from the Northwest, a small town north of Seattle to be exact. I have grown up amongst the outdoorsy folks here and they seem to be less concerned with money. That said, there is still alot of money in the area. I meet people that tend to be a contradiction to themselves. (ie: hiking, like to get dirty but only if they're wearing expensive hiking clothes) It really fluctuates from person to person. Rural areas tend to have people whose values are placed elsewhere than those who live in the city. I can't say if this is a good or a bad thing. There are positives and negatives to both sides. I can say, personally, that I love the city because it is exciting but I have to be near nature as well, or else I'll go crazy. Beijing is driving me nuts lately because I can't go running anywhere without breathing all the smog. Little things like that. :)

As far as what the women are like here towards guys, maybe Stroopwafel can give you a better perspective. I can only speak for my group of friends that grew up in the same area as me, not the girls that grew up in the city of Seattle. There is a weird combo of people here that appear to be similar but I've found that those growing up in the city and suburbs are different than us country folks even though you wouldn't be able to tell us apart upon first meeting us. Hope that helps bring some light to the subject. I never got to venture much outside of LA. I'm curious to know what it's like where you are from. Are you from the city or suburbs?

Hey KristyB.  Thanks for sharing that.  That's really some good info.  I'm originally from Orange County, CA, which is pretty much the suburbs.  So that's pretty much what I consider myself.  It's definitely not rural, though, but it's a lot more spread out than a big city like LA is.  I don't really much like LA to be honest, so I definitely consider myself a suburban more than a city boy.  My dream would be to end up working for a law firm back in OC actually.  That probably tells you much I love OC. ;)

How's Beijing by the way?  Is it pretty modernized and do a lot of foreigners fit in, etc.?  I've never been to China before, but one of these days I'll have to go, maybe after law school.

I grew up in NorCal. As much as I make fun of Seattle sucking, I really do like it here. Mostly for the outdoorsiness of the people.

I just find it very striking how different the people here can be compared from people I have met from other parts of the country.
Friends from real big cities notice it as well. Especially people from NYC, LA, SF, or Chicago. As with anyplace there is always a broad variety, so I don't want to be misconstrued as making any broad generalizations.

I think people here come across as very introspective and passive at first. Outwardly, superficially friendly, but very difficult to know very well, and intimately. Someone told a friend of mine that it takes five years to find a steady group of friends if you come here knowing no one. Yikes
"Friendly but not warm", is a comment I hear from time to time.

How about superficially friendly?
Did you grow up here Koga? Has it always been like this? Or is in in reaction to the huge amount of people that moved here in the mid to late 90's? Someone even tried to convince me that it was the early Nordic settlers that make their mark on the area and stamped it with their personalities.
Even the Asian-Am community seems like this as well.
But most Asian-Ams seem polite but unfriendly to me anyway.  :D

When people here are trying to be personable, they rise to the level of superficially friendly.

I moved here five years ago, but it has been my experience that the only friendly people are the non-natives.  And I've been given the impression that Seattle was always like this.

It's definitely the Nordic influence.  Icey mthrfckrs, the lot of them.

Oh, and have you noticed the passive racism that abounds here?

Kristy, money/status is very important here in China. Chinese are typical materialists. I grew up not knowing the importance of money/status because my parents didn't teach me such things. They were two nice and generous kids from old rich families. My mother told me that, above all things, love is most important. She said that a person is rich if he/she has love, no matter how deep his/her pocket is.
I think you are right in saying "not to put up with mean people". The traditional value teaches us women to put up with bad things, which is totally wrong.
I hate the smog of Beijing too!
Title: Re: Asian/Asian-American Discussion Board
Post by: KristyB on October 06, 2004, 09:11:01 PM
Mary, it sounds like your parents have great values that they passed on to you. It's strange because I've been learning about all of the misconceptions I had about China and the philosophies of people here, it's been quite an eye opener. My main complaints about the smog are that I don't live nearby any parks so I can't escape it unless I want to travel half an hour to get to a park. I live really far away from the city center.

Koga, I think you are right about the passive racism. I have been shocked talking to people whom I thought were open-minded and when race issues came up, I found out they were quite ignorant. I hate to talk about Seattle and give the impression that I know what it's like to live there because I haven't ever really lived in the city. I've been a visitor, staying with friends, etc. But I do have established friends here because I have lived in the area my whole life so I don't know what it's like as an outsider.

Nordic, huh? That would explain all of the blondes at my undergrad. I have to say that there seems to be a new crop of people here too, though. At least at my undergrad, originally there were more "hippies" so to say and now it has moved onto "preppies". The passive-agressive thing really drives me nuts, people are afraid to stand up for what they think if they feel it might make someone dislike them. I'd prefer honesty. I also have just as hard of a time making new friends in Seattle as well. People seem to be happy with what they're doing and don't want to change their routines. That includes friends, I guess. I'll have a better idea about things when I move there for good next year. I hope it's not as difficult as I think.

As for not wanting to hijack this board: Stroopwafel, (I believe it was you) mentioned not making a point of being Asian-American to the Adcomms because it wouldn't help at all. Do you think this is the case for Washington schools or just Californian schools? Those of you applying to colleges in the Midwest, does it seem to help there?

Passive racist like:

I don't have any friend of another race. No one of any other race lives in my neighborhood. I don't look to have friends of other races. I'm not very aware of other races, and not interested in learning. If I say something racist then its a joke, bcause I'm no racist. If you think I'm racist because of that thenit is your problem and not mine.

Or do you mean the odd level of discomfort that I feel when encountering people of other races? That Seattle is NOT racially diverse and that the races do not mix here?

I like Seattle for a lot of reasons, but this one thing is what makes me very uncomfortable. I cannot even express it unless someone knows what I am talkinh about. And it is not just the Caucasians here. Asians only seem to hang with Asian only groups, Latinos with Latinos, Blacks with Blacks.

And yet they consider themselves very liberal. It can be troubling. I just keep to myself, and try to not go outside.  :D

Someone tried to tell me once that Seattle was so much better than other cities because different ethnic groups lived amongst each other and it was very mixed, etc. As opposed to NY, LA, Chicago where there are specific parts of town for each group and they don't mingle. I really don't see how this perspective is true.  I think people are less likely to mingle and don't mix groups very much at all. The problem is that many people are completely unaware that there is a problem so how do you change it?

I grew up in a white town at a white school and it was more than just passive racism there. Many of my classmates have moved onto Seattle having grown up in this atmosphere and not experiencing anything else. These are some of the people that appear to be normal and then you realize that they are very ignorant. In the rural areas around Seattle, you will find some shocking examples of racism. Maybe this contributes to the grouping you are talking about.

Yikes, I started the conversation about the NW and people being nice and I realize that it really isn't safe to say that about any place. There are positives and negatives everywhere you go.

Gobears: as far as being a foreigner in China? It is quite an experience. China is the only place in the world that I feel like people are really noticing me. It is more of a friendly curiousity than anything and can be really fun. The drawback is that if you want to blend in and be inconspicuous and you aren't Asian, it is pretty much impossible. I recommend visiting here though. It is, by far, one of the most interesting and beautiful countries I have ever visited.

Yes!  This is the essence of the problem here.  I had a Thai friend of mine tell me that I was the first white person he felt comfortable talking to.  And while I feel that that was a terrific compliment, it is also a reflection upon this city.

Wow Karen, I never said that I thought I got the attention for being intelligent or particularly good-looking or anything. I know it is simply because my skin is white. I was stating the fact that you get different/extra attention more as a warning than anything else. I try to make it sound not as bad as it feels because I hear alot of foreigners here complaining about it and that doesn't do any good. It is an issue I deal with everyday and Gobears was interested in the foreign experience here so it is the biggest issue I have to address. If you go into the rural areas here as a white person, you will get surrounded by crowds of people. This is not an exaggeration. Many people are not prepared for it that come here. I try to look at it positively, as curiosity. It is not anything like any other Asian countries I have visited in respect to how foreigners are treated.

Lately it has been an issue with me because I don't feel like I am appreciated for anything other than my skin color and nationality. I don't know if my students like me at all personally and probably won't know this for awhile, if ever. I can never fit in completely and will always be an outsider. So you can take it as a sense of pride on my part, but I assure you that it is not. None of us are all knowing, but ignorant is not a word anyone I know would use to describe me. You sound a bit angry about something regarding this but you do not know me, nor do you know what I'm going through here.

You can look at it as a positive or a negative, I was choosing to describe positively but you have forced me to explain it in the way that I hate hearing about from other foreigners. I'm not complaining about being a foreigner here. There are good days and bad days. You just happened to catch me on a bad day.

Oh, I'm sort of in between UGs, so I won't be applying to Law School for a while.

I really don't think that UW's reputation is all that great; it's hard to get into because they don't admit very many students and they are the only first tier school in the Northwest.  Plus, so many people who live here don't want to leave.

If you have the numbers needed to go to UW, you could probably get into a few t14 schools.  And then you'd have no trouble landing a job anywhere.

Yeah, Koga's right. UW is difficult to get into and it doesn't have the best national reputation. Neither does Seattle U but those are my only two choices if I want to stay in Western Washington. Locally, they are good schools but if you don't plan on staying in the area, I actually wouldn't recommend them. UW would be great for me because I would get in-state tuition. I say that I hope to get into Seattle U, but it really shouldn't be a problem with my numbers. I hate to jinx myself, though, numbers within the median don't always mean you are going to get in.

I am trying to stay away from this board too, Gobears. I really need to keep to my studying for the LSATs and this thing really sucks you in. Someone PMd me though so I was drug back into it :) Good luck with studying.

Thanks Koga and Kristy, those are good points.  Forget UW then!  Just kidding.  Well I guess my biggest reason was 'cos I'd be able to live in Seattle which sounds cooler and cooler every day to me.  But yeah, perhaps if I can get into a more national school then I could still possibly make my way over to Seattle someday.

Anyhow, guess I better go back and hit the books now.  Ugh.

How funny that people are staying away from the board for a while. I haven't checked in in 2 weeks because I have been bunkered in with LG practice.

To all of you that are doing the siege mentality...more power to you.

Check in an let us know how you are doing.

My averages on LG problems is curently at 89% from 60% and I am feeling more confident for the Dec 4 drop dead date.

What people have said about SU and UW is pretty on. Currently SU wants to emulate Sata Clara's quick rise to the 2nd tier. So SU is focusing on the numbers that will improve their rankings. The feeling that I get is that since there are so few schools in WA state (3) then they feel that they have a greater chance to rise.

UW is a top 50, and they are being much more selective. It does look that if you an get into UW ten you have just as good a shot at the T14. So unless you are dead set on staying in Seattle, and if you can get into UW then you may as well aim high.

Good Hunting. See you all on the other side.

Thanks Man. I appreciate the positivity. I've gone the whole moles and trolls route. 5-7 hours a day. I'm barely looking for work, unless it is volunteer stuff, no going out unless it is the cafe on my street or the library, or a bike ride to clear my head. No lady-seeking, nada, rien. No life till DEC 4, No Sleep till Brooklyn. I think my motivation is coming from the fact that all I want is Public Interest, Crusader, White Knight stuff. The thought if it makes me realy happy. Maybe I'll have a Knight Tilting at windmills tattoo if I get into any of he schools I want.   

Here is my methodology for the LG stuff:

I've been doing research and I have created a compendium of LG problems and I have tried to organize them acording to type, diagram style, and personal degree of difficulty.

My assumptions are that there are going to be types of LG problems that certain people will intuitively undersand better then others. So I've been making a list of the types of problems that consistently kick my ass and drain the most time. I hope to be able to recognize the highest percentage ones from the soul suckers.

With the end of eventually being even more specific in my studies.

If any of you have any good tips, of if you want to do some virtual sharig of ideas, problems diagraming, let me know and P-message me.

I send my over caffeinated best wishes, and positive flow to all of you that are studying tonight.

I'd love to help you study; your a cool cat in the same town I am, and I'm very good at LG.  But I'm one of those 'intuitive' types.  I either understand the problems visually or though some subconscious process.  Either way, I don't go through the usual steps required to solve the problems; therefore, I would make a lousy teacher. 

But you went from 60% to 89%.  I'd say you're sitting pretty.

Post by: Stroopwafel on October 16, 2004, 06:21:18 PM
I'm overcompensating. I did well on the other two sections and I pooched the LG.
I aim to make a solid effort in nailing the LG in DEC. I need 165 minimum if I am going to be able to be competitive at one of the Public Interest Schools.

I used to despair at this section. It consistently made me feel dumb. But I just kept on doing them. The more I did the more that certain deductions and assumptions came to me. And the ones I had the hardest time with are the ones that I am doing over and over until the deductions and assumptions come more and more easily.

For those of you that are stressing hard, I think that part of the test is seeing how much effort you put into studying. If you can put forth honest effort into studying something that you will probably never use again in law school, then how much more effort will you be able to put forth on subjects that will mean everything?

The LSAT is one big mindfuck trial of your emotions, your persistence, and your will to rise.

So rise MOFOs. You can do it.

This looks like it'll be a dialogue, ReindeerS.  I hung out with zero asians in college so it'll be interesting to go to school with some for law school.  I think that a lot of Asians are looking to meet spouses in school (esp if you're an old girl like Deb) and therefore would want other Asians around.

I would think the best place for Asians is, obviously, where there are many Asians. I can only speak of this from a Korean perspective.

1. Los Angeles
2. NYC Metro
3. DC Metro.

There 3 areas by rank, are the top Korean population centers in the country.

Then I would think big cities where there are sizable Asian populations, like Honolulu, Chicago, Boston, San Francisco, Houston.

Then the rest of the big cities, which tend to be more liberal.  San Diego, Minneapolis, Phoenix, Las Vegas, etc.

I think the ratio of Koreans goes up considerably around any geographic area that begins with the word "Fort".  ::) Ft. Hood, Ft. Meade, Ft. Campbell....

You know, when I moved to Honolulu, it kinda stunned me for a second. I was fresh off the plane, and looking aruond at the people around me and thinking, "Wow... look at all these Japanese tourists!" It was a little disconcerting to suddenly find myself part of the majority. It was weird for my husband, too, who'd never been a minority before. We sat in church one day in Manoa, and Erik looks around at the congregation and then starts to slide down the pew. I asked him what was up, and he asked, "Is this what it was like going to church in Texas?" Not a white face to be seen.....

I also don't like to go to places that have so many (East) Asians that the fact that I don't speak a certain language means that people think I'm a freak.  I was in England at a Chinese place in a city with a heavy Chinese population with my sister and when we couldn't speak Chinese (due to being Korean) the waitress got very flustered.

What are things that Asians have to deal with in law?  I noticed at one firm I interned at that there weren't many Asian partners (I think maybe 1 in the NY office) nor many Asian people who were super stars and thus on partner track.  This was, of course, also the case with all other minorities and women.
Title: Re: Asian/Asian-American Discussion Board

I think Asians in general, and Asian women in particular have two cultural stereotypes working against us in the law:
1.) We are timid and nonconfrontational. (HA!)

Remember, when people see us, they think, "Good at math and science". When I was in undergrad, I was seriously struggling through a lab science class. I e-mailed one of the TA's to ask for help, and she wrote back advising that I sit next to "the Korean girl" in the next lab. I WAS the Korean girl.  ::)

Yeah, I'm great at science, thus my 2.9 GPA in engineering.  ;)

Anyway, I agree with those stereotypes, they are used much too often, but as long as they don't start basing sterotypes on William Hung, I guess it doesn't bother me all that much.

I saw a study once where a group of Asian women were asked to take a math test.  Half of them took a survey before asking them all about being Asian while the other half asked them questions on being female.  The first group did better on the test than the second did since thinking about being Asian reminded them that they're good at math whereas thinking about being female reminded them that they're supposed to be bad at it.

....so, stereotypes are dumb.  Not always, but eh, I'm not so into them.  Maybe it's because I sucked it up at my math oriented finance classes but rocked the concept based econ ones.  And rocked French.  Yay French.   :)

I had the great joy of being in high school when "Full Metal Jacket" came out. You know: "Me so horny.

Speaking of pick up lines, I HATE when guys, usually white guys, try to pick up Asian girls with the line, "Oh my last girlfriend was Asian."  One, that indicates to me that he might have some sort of fetish, and two, who the freak cares what his last gf was like.  I don't go to guys and start off talking about my ex's because who wants to be compared to someone else right from the get go.  Argh.

When I was little and kimchee was too spicey, I would drink milk right after it.  So I suppose that the ice cream could cut down on the taste of the kimchee...but that would ruin the point of both foods.

And I made rice yesterday for the second time ever over a stove instead of a rice cooker, and it actually came out okay.  But I still prefer rice cookers.

I have no skills with rice cookers...about 10% of the time I might add too much or too little water and completely @#!* things up.

I hope my husband's cool with me wanting a rice cooker in the kitchen...I feel like this is one of those cultural things that white guys might not get.  This is assuming I'll marry a white guy, which, at least for right now, will probably be the case.

I think that the vanilla wouldn't work too well with kim chee.  You'd have to make the ice cream yourself, using basic ice cream ingredients and pureed kim chee. 

I think I might actually try that.  Then I could give my unsuspecting sister a kim chee milkshake.

My husband loves the rice cooker, but he hates the rice-bin. You know, the garbage-can sized thing that holds a 50-pound bag of CalRose and dispenses rice by the cup at the touch of a button. He makes me keep it in the pantry. I've tried rice cookers of all sizes, but if you want the right texture, you gotta get industrial-sized.

Re: cooking of rice.. you're supopsed to put water in it, then put your hand, palm facing down flat on top of the rice.  If the water level hits your knuckles, you got just enough water. If the water goes over, then you have too much.

beaten by a inorganic...I'll have to go shoot myself now.
actually, this is old news to me, and that heirarchy probably changes for other women a bit...but the last place is probably the same.

anyway, I have concluded that learning to cook rice properly won't do crap for me, so I'll just let the rice be soggy or dry.

Is minority population of a school a deciding factor in where you choose to go?
Title: Re: Asian/Asian-American Discussion Board
Post by: UMHBmom on January 23, 2005, 08:37:43 AM
I was up in OK City this week visiting a law school, and we took a trip to the State Capital. We were given a tour by a state rep., a real schmoozy, greasy politico-type. We were sitting on the House floor doing a kind of question and answer thing, and someone asked about minority involvement in OK politics. He said that the state needed more minorities. There were only 5-6 black reps. Then he said, "We have no Orientals". Yeah..... a politician said "Orientals".  :-\ I turned on my mike and said, "Ahem.... Asian-Americans". He looked at me and said, "What?" I said, "We're Asian-Americans, sir." HE said, "I didn't realize there was a difference." I said, "Referring to Asian-Americans as 'Orientals' nowadays is the equivelent of referring to African-Americans as 'Negroes', sir."

The thing is, I felt so stupid fighting over political-correctness when our own communities sell "Oriental groceries". You know???? What's up with that?

I don't think I care all that much after going to a high school and college with 30% asians, I'm open for a bit of change. I guess as long as I'm not the only minority present, minority population isn't on the priority list when choosing a school.

UMHB..  :o I can't believe he said that. Everytime I hear that word, I cringe. Even if it's used to describe a rug. Your experience is a perfect example of why I'd want to go to school in a diverse area.  I'd be so unhappy if I were to spend my days correcting unassuming folks about the political correctness of the word "OrientaL" and things of that nature. It's a futile and tiresome battle anyway. So yeah, diversity is a huge factor for me. I don't mean just a large Asian population but a large minority population.

Honeybuns,  Sorry this is long but...
First post, but I have been looking in for some time. Mentor minority applicants applying to law schools. [especially enjoy the non-law school digressions of the minority boards] If numbers were the sum total of law school then LSDAS would take the LSAT and GPA, weight them, and just submit the lists to the schools.  Recommendations, EC's, WE's, recommendations would have no place in the formula. Other than the LSAT and GPA, the rest is pretty subjective. It would be interesting to add to the LSAT/GPA identification whether an individual has purchased a prep course and the correlation with a high LSAT. The ideal admissions formula for "fairness" would be a test administered in such a way that there would be no prep courses for those who can afford to pay and/or have the time to spare to take them; no one could have an "in" with an adcom directly or through a third party; there would be a weighting of the GPA for some schools to reflect grade deflection/harder courses; certain majors at certain schools would be weighted; rec's, PS', WE's, and EC's would be eliminated since some people have to work through school and don't have the money or connections to get great internships, recommendations or study abroad; no legacies.  There's your admissions based on ability alone. Being a minority is just one factor considered, otherwise all blacks would be in the T14 schools and none would be rejected. Those posting on LSN and LSD represent a handful of applicants.  You can not see the whole applicant pool on LSN (3,000+ applicants to law school Y post there. Don't think so).
Could those who get in as legacies, because of connections, because a parent is on the university staff, because they can afford the bill, or because of some other non-LSAT/GPA factor stand the same kind of scrutiny?

I had Panda Express for dinner today and it reminded me of something. Their slogan is now "Panda Express: Chinese for 'Yummy'". I couldn't help thinking to myself 1) Panda Express is NOT Chinese food and 2) "Panda Express" does not mean "yummy" in Chinese.

Worst fast-food advertising slogan ever (second only to McDonald's: I'm Lovin' It...who the hell "loves" McDonald's??). I'm offended, and I'm not even Chinese! (I'm Korean...close enough, right? ;))

Ok, that's my monthly contribution to the AADB.

What's up with these silly names for asian restaurants? Over here (england) there's a chinese restaurant called "Opium Den" and another called "Paddy Field". What the heck?

Would YOU want to eat at a place called Opium den? How about calling it Crack house, or Heroin Haven. Just doesn't have the same Asian ring to it does it?

I don't know if what I had was called a JSP, but I think its similar. It made my hair so soft and smooth. I never had to style it, it just took care of itself after I got out of the shower.

I cried so amazingly hard in that movie. Goodness, my BF had to console me all the way out to the parking lot. Definetly one of the best movies ever, I highly recommend it to everyone.

Yes...so sad. I've heard two different stories...one is that she was distraught over nude scenes in her new movie called "The Scarlett Letter", and the other is that she was depressed over tabloid reports on her personal life. Either way, it's so sad that such a vibrant young actress felt like she had no other options. She was just so beautiful and talented.  :'(

My parents really liked that movie.  I never got a chance to see it.

Did you hear about how Korean men are the hot new thing in Japan due to some weird Korean soap opera where the main lead is incredibly sappy (and imo very annoying).  Japanese women keep saying that Korean men are so much better because they're more emotional and caring.  I don't know how they infer that from one show.

So...where is everyone going to law schoool?

I cried so amazingly hard in that movie. Goodness, my BF had to console me all the way out to the parking lot. Definetly one of the best movies ever, I highly recommend it to everyone. If you are a korean female though...watch out! Be prepared with a box of tissues because you'll be crying a damn river by the end of the movie. Omg, just thinking about it brings tears to my eyes...*sniff**sniff* :'(

dude, if you have a PhD in Mathematical Economics/Finance, why the hell are you applying to law school?  You should be in Manhattan doing investment banking, making more money than one ever could as an attorney (without bending people over).

My parents really liked that movie.  I never got a chance to see it.

Did you hear about how Korean men are the hot new thing in Japan due to some weird Korean soap opera where the main lead is incredibly sappy (and imo very annoying).  Japanese women keep saying that Korean men are so much better because they're more emotional and caring.  I don't know how they infer that from one show.

So...where is everyone going to law schoool?

Korean War movie, about 2 brothers.  One is on a mission to pretty much become a martyr so he can send his younger brother home.  Eventually, he loses focus and becomes more wrapped up with becoming a war hero and defeating the evil commies.

At the end, his brother brings him back to his humanity, and he returns to his real goal, which was to send his younger brother home, at any cost.

if you want to buy the dvd, but are too cheap to do so, buy it on vcd. it's like 8 bucks, and delivery is pretty quick. that's where i get all the chinese movies i want to see before they're released in the states.

I used to translate stuff in Japanese and Korean and subtitle them in English as a hobby during college (Yes, I used to be a movie/animation 'pirate'). JSA's a long movie, though, so it'd take a while to translate. It should already have an English translation, though. I've seen quite a few Korean movies at my local Blockbuster, which was surprising, seeing as how there aren't many Koreans here and I have a hard time imagining the 95% white population here watching movies in a foreign language...

Post by: pigfeet on December 29, 2006, 01:05:57 AM
Damn doc.. why so late?

Writing the PS sucks.  I agonized over it for months and then got it ripped to shreds by my proofreaders so I re-wrote the whole thing. 

Do you have everything else done?  Your scores and recs and stuff? 

I should have gotten everything done before I applied, instead I applied first and then had to wait for my second recommendation and my second lsat.  If you have everything in to LSAC it should go pretty quick as soon as you submit the apps.  I'm still not complete at most of my schools. 
Title: Re: Asian/Asian-American Discussion Board

I hope everything goes complete quickly once I do submit!
Title: Re: Asian/Asian-American Discussion Board
Post by: pigfeet on December 29, 2006, 01:24:04 AM
Yeah. The PS can lick my stinky feet.

Everything will go complete quickly once you submit.  It'll take the schools a couple days to request your report and then a couple more for LSAC to send it and you should be complete, then you get to wait for 2-8 weeks like me... haha

Whats up Doc?

I think what he meant to say was, "In my experience, I would say about 90 percent of PEOPLE I have met, regardless of age or environment, poke fun at the very sight of ME."

so i met 2 asian girls this weekend.  one corean and the other chinese, both adopted.  None of them have ever dated an asian guy.  One of them said that her white brother told her to never bring an asian guy home.  I was really taken aback by this.....racism from her own family!  I sensed a lot of self-hatred in her as well. :P

what a xenophobe. at least she doesn't seem to mind.

I agree it's somewhat ridiculous in its usage today. After all, it's internationally recognized as Korean with a "K." However, womyn and Corean are not comparable analogies.

Once upon a time, the romanization was, in fact, "Corea." However, during the Japanese occupation, Japan didn't like the idea of Corea being ahead of them in anything, like in the alphabet. They changed the romanization to be spelled with a "K" so that Korea would follow after Japan.

Whereas, the correct spelling of women has always been with an "e." There has never been a group that robbed women of their label and replaced it with something the group felt to be less substantial. Feminists have freely chosen to remove the "man" and "men" out of their descriptor.

just food for thought

They're not people.

A womyn is not a human.  They are a completly diferent species.
