Studying for the LSAT / Re: did anyone lie about their race on the lsat?
« on: October 10, 2008, 04:30:15 PM »
this is just ridiculous.  although I know plenty of white people check "other" to make it SEEM like they are some kind of minority without actually having to choose one of the minority statuses.

They probably just don't want to be discriminated against.  It's not so much that they want to be seen as a minority, they just don't want to be labeled as a "privileged" white person.

This is probably more of a problem for asians, however, who experience the most discrimination in admissions, and are therefore probably most likely to check the "other" box.

starting watching from 1:15

I - I don't get it. In other fields outside of government, "elite" is a good thing, like an "elite" fighting force; Tiger Woods is an "elite" golfer. If I need brain surgery, I'd like an "elite" doctor. But, in politics, "elite" is bad. The "elite" aren't down to earth and accessible like you and me and President Sh*t-for-brains.

Which is fine, except that whenever there's a Bush Administration scandal, it always traces back to some incompetent political hack appointment, and you think to yourself, where are they getting these screw-ups from? Well, now we know. From Pat Robertson. I'm not kidding.

Take Monica Goodling, who, before she resigned last week, because she's smack in the middle of the U.S. Attorneys scandal, was the third-ranking official in the Justice Department of the United States. She's 33 years old. And though she never even worked as a prosecutor, she was tasked with overseeing the job performance of all 93 U.S. Attorneys.

How do you get to the top that fast? Harvard? Princeton? No, Goodling did her undergraduate work at Messiah College. You know, Messiah, home of the Fighting Christ-ies? And then went on to attend Pat Robertson's law school. Yes, Pat Robertson, the man who said that the presence of gay people at Disney World would cause earthquakes, tornadoes and possibly a meteor, has a law school.

And what kid wouldn't want to attend? It's three years, and you only have to read one book. U.S. News & World Report, which does the definitive ranking of colleges, lists Regent as a Tier Four school, which is the lowest score it gives. It's not a hard school to get into. You have to renounce Satan and draw a pirate on a matchbook.

This is for people who couldn't get into the University of Phoenix.

Now, would you care to guess how many graduates of this televangelist's diploma mill work in the Bush Administration? 150. And you wonder why things are so messed up. We're talking about a top Justice Department official who went to a college funded by a TV host. Would you send your daughter to Maury Povich U.? And if you did, would you expect her to get a job at the White House?

In 200 years, we've gone from "We, the people," to "Up With People." From "the best and the brightest" to "dumb and dumber." And where better to find people dumb enough to believe in George Bush than Pat Robertson's law school?

The problem here in America isn't that the country is being run by "elites." It's that it's being run by a bunch of hayseeds. And, by the way, the lawyer Monica Goodling just hired to keep her a$$ out of jail, went to a real law school.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: what happens if I report a testing center?

HOW MANY TIMES do I have to tell you guys that I DID complain and the proctor/supervisor did NOTHING?????
I think it is ridiculous that some people here are so stupid. If you don't like the topic DON'T read, don't answer. >:(

I was just asking some advice . 

*drools* Durr but did you say something while you were in the test?


Seriously, make a formal complaint now and do us all a favour. The backback and minor offenses really don't provide any kind of unfair advantage, but I'm a little pissed about the digital timer allowance. I made every effort to follow the rules, had a stringent proctor that ensured relative fairness, and I don't like that other people had the advantage that I had during PTs.

Well, I dd something about 10 seconds before the test. The proctor told me I was correct but did NOTHHING about it.
I think I will contact LSAC today.

I guess you didn't catch my sarcasm. I was parodying those before who clearly didn't get your situation.

In any case, I'm not criticizing you, I think you're in the right and I would advise you to do something now if you're truly outraged.

lol @ sarcasm via text.

1. it is estimated as much as 6% of the white democratic electorate will not vote for Obama because he is black.
2. it is estimated that over 95% of African Americans will vote for Obama.



what is the percent of non-blacks who will vote for obama?

as I sat listening to the proctor yell at the guy sitting all the way up front, I had no idea he would get away with such thing. He was bubbling in the answers after the time was up. This happened before the break and after the exam. She showed frustration saying "gee i said stop writing why r u still working on the exam?!" he wrote for few seconds more and filled in the bubbles. The proctor let him get away with it.

His answer sheet should have been taken away. Those points, even if he guessed them, is still not valid points.

probably b/c she(?) was only bothered after the test didn't go as smoothly as planned, I'm guessing.

Maybe because the supposed authority failed on their part and mere test takers didn't have the nerve to report the crime during the test? The op was taking the LSAT you know and last thing op needs to do is worry about some schmuck not understanding rules.
