You don't need to know anything about american history to know that determining an individuals admission status based on their race, whether they are a minority or they came over on the Mayflower, is inherently racist. These institutions, many of the PUBLIC, treat individuals differently based on their race. Affirmative Action is, at best, a necessary evil; but it's evil, nonetheless. American History my ass. Anyway, who the @#!* picks an attorney based on their race. I'd love to see some a-hole say I want a black/white/hispanic/asian attorney. You want the BEST attorney, not the one who was the most "disadvantaged" growing up.
It's a crock of sh*t and it doesn't help anyone, especially minorities.  American history. Go cry about it. That'll help the world. :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'(

*sigh*

Listen newbie, I would love to give you the time of day but I really can't waste my time with such poorly structured (and inflammatory) arguments. Look it over and try again.

Catch yah later!  :-*

Seriously, you're a f-ing dork.

Choosing the Right Law School / Rutgers-Newark Deferral
« on: May 02, 2006, 03:16:06 PM »
I still have not heard back from Rutgers-Newark since being deferred a few months ago. I've been told by several other deferred applicants that they received waitlist letters last week. I haven't heard *&^%. I don't know if that's a good thing or not. I guess it means nothing until I actually hear from them. If anyone knows anything please let me know. Rutgers keeps shooing me away when I call. They certainly aren't eager to have me attend, but if I get in I'll probably go there, like a little female dog. I feel like the last law applicant in the country to have yet to hear back from a school. If they're this bad know, i can only imagine how they'll be if/when I go there.

What's with all this affirmative action BS I see on American University's websites? I live in liberal Canada and it is not this bad. How can anyone possibly support judging applicant's based upon their skin tone, and not be a racist? ???

How much do you know about American history? Maybe that might give you some insight into the matter.

Good question. I still haven't heard anything yet regarding my deferral. It's a bit frustrating since I've had to put down deposits at other schools. I'm out $800 as of now. The second deposit is coming up soon, too. I assume that it's related to their goal to fulfil certain admission quotas. They seem to champion their ethnic diversity above just about anything else, which must add another acceptance chriteria. I assume that this complicates the whole process and maybe even slows things down quite a bit.
