URMs evolved to have different skin color, genetic disorders, hair, skull thickness, and muscle structure. Maybe, just maybe, they evolved to have different intelligence characteristics.

And before some moron asserts that environmental factors play a part, I will concede that they do; however, poor whites still outperform rich blacks.

Think about it. I'm not saying all blacks are dumb, just that they are much dumber on average.

Where should I go next fall? / Re: Decision Time

Killself, then Temple.

MD = Temple = TTT. Go to the one with the lowest cost.

If you're smart, you won't go to any of them.

Those are all mediocre schools, so go to the one in the area where you want to practice.

Where should I go next fall? / Re: LSAT/GPA/Transfer scenario

OP, do not count on transferring.

Since you must be a native Virginian (who else would suffer the indignity of getting a degree from VPISU!), try for W&M. If you do well, you can transfer to UVa (you will get preference as an in-state student). If not, you will minimize your debt and and get a decent degree. I know W&M used to be tough on sub 3 GPAs, but I think they have reversed that course.

Good luck to you.

I think UVA is going to be less tolerant, and if you've never lived in the "south", that could take some serious getting used to.

Yes, go to Michigan to hang out with kids who make moronic and sweeping generalizations.

Also, Penn is located in the middle of the eastern seaboard so our graduates place in the most important markets. 

And here is where this becomes the worst flame ever.

Not sure what you have against Penn, but I'm on board. A drearier place I have not been.

I always thought your IQ was pretty static, but from what youíre saying if I scored 150 on my diagnostic Iím not very smart but if I then took a class and prepped for a few months and got a 165 on the LSAT my IQ has gone up a lot. Cool I can get smarter just by taking practice exams! Anyone can be a genius all it takes is prepping for a standardized exam! That does not make a lot of sense to me, I guess my IQ must be too low to comprehend how it works.

IQ is static, idiot. Because everyone studies for the test so much now, your results after preparation are static.

You're probably not going to get into a school that is going to get you a job doing international law.

If you go to DC, you will have a hard time getting a job.

You need to decide in what market you'd like to practice.

Still, if we used the LSAT as the predictor of her law school performance, she should be something like 3-4 standard deviations less qualified for Boalt than it's median students (I did quick math here, please don't hold it against me). Surely, such a huge discrepancy would have put her at an insurmountable competitive disadvantage against her peers if her LSAT score was truly indicative of her aptitude.

Um, no. Boalt students are not smart. The LSAT is a good indicator of verbal intelligence. It's not perfect, but it's pretty good. Sub 160 is atrocious.

we definitely superman'ed that ho

PS - Since when does a Florida D give up 37 points to Kentucky not in a basketball game?



Since their D is good but not great. UF should get another crack at LSU in the championship game, though.
