maybe i misread it but i nott see anything that showed that they study less efficienty because they thought they would look dumb to others if they did poorly.

"The threat made them inefficient on a test that, like most standardized tests, is set up so that thinking long often means thinking wrong,"

now inefficient on a test isnt not studying inefficiently.

also on the lsat, where time is the most important variable i can see somewhat (not justifibly though) how that can factor in, but pretty much every exam URMs do worse and many of those time is not an issue, like the SAT. seriously time isnt a factor on the SAT, its a pretty simple exam which gives u much more time than u need, yet only like 125 black males score above 1400 in the entire nation per year.

miss p,

fair enough

red quote "It is not so much that blacks and other URMs identify themselves as dumber. It is more that they subconsciously believe that their performance in standardized tests will be taken by others as an indication that they are." Thus "...high-performing, high-ability, highly-motivated black and other URM students pursue inefficient test-taking strategies."

How on Earth did u come to thank conclusion? I think if I score low on the lsat people will think im dumb, that doesnt mean I am going to study bad.

ok

the government can legally use racial discrimination if it goes a good.

diversity = a good.

hmmm cant that same logic be used to support discrimination against blacks?

pretty lame liberals preach about discriminationing against whites/asians in order to *help* blacks kinda funny how black families are not better off today after 30+ years of AA than they were right after Jim Crow laws ended. but i guess this means we need even more AA, right?

no where did i say anything that would infer that we should strive to be like them, other than ben franklin who was a pimp, but anyways in ending slavery we amended the consititution, we didnt just saw ohhh blacks are now people too because blacks were never meant to be people when it was written, so we changed the document so that now slavery is illegal

interupt the constitution and laws as they were understood to be written by the people who wrote them. word meaning change, stuff changes. the constitution is great because its simple and change change (with vast majority approval) but that gets eroded when a judge can basically come up with any word twist and make their ruling law. abortion, gay marriage, etc should be left up to votes/congress/state govs

if gays can marry, why not extend it to multiple people, why cant 3 people be in love and get married? are they being discriminated against because of whom they have fallen in love with. no marriage = man and women.

seriously give gays something thats legally equal to marriage, civil union, and let that be the end of it. if the people of america want marriage to be stickly a man and women, which they do, thats fine by me.

btw this whole problem was created by liberal judges who believe its their job to make laws. republicans wouldnt have to do all this crap if liberals didnt appoint power hungry judges.

Where should I go next fall? / Re: Help!!! In at Penn off WL!!!
« on: June 07, 2006, 09:22:35 AM »
i was saying go to penn if u want to do finance or corporate law because i feel clients are more likely to be penn grads than duke. Its not going to make u a better lawyer or understand finance more, but being able to connect with an alum, even if different part of the university would be a plus. Otherwise just take the money and go to duke.
