Affirmative Action / GMU and ABA badgering
« on: February 22, 2009, 07:56:37 PM »
With regard to ethnic diversity, George Mason University has an interesting past. There was a WSJ op-ed written about this in April '08: .It seems like with the student body composed of ~20% URM students there would also be diversity of viewpoints, but I have definitely heard otherwise (people are always talking about how overly conservative GMU is).

Please read the op-ed and respond with your thoughts! I think there are strong arguments to be made advocating and criticizing AA, but the ABA's behavior represents a trend that is much scarier than an institution adhering to any sort of AA doctrine. Let me know what you think!

I have researched all of these schools (already visited a few), and I would honestly be happy ending up at ANY of them, save possibly Baylor. I am a non-URM and numbers are 162 LSAT 3.8 GPA from a well-respected state school majoring in Political Science, Psychology, and Interational Studies with a Peace and Conflict Studies Minor. Good softs (Phi Beta Kappa, PR officer of chapter of National Psychology Honor Society, three years experience singing in university choirs, and a couple others), three recs (should all be strong).

WashU-St. Louis
Washington and Lee

William and Mary
Colorado (tough to predict this cycle)
George Mason


I'm thinking there are a few waitlists in my future
