That's all I gotta say!

I live in NYC and even still it is hard to find a quality black woman.  Is there some secret society you all are a part of or something?  Do I need to buy a map to find you all?  Or is it just that there are not many of you?

Studying for the LSAT / What is BETTER? Taking a class or self study?
« on: April 11, 2006, 01:43:52 PM »
I recently withdrew from a class with a horrible teacher.  I have the choice to either jump into another class or buy books to self study.

What are the differences in both study methods and what would you suggest, and why?

Is anyone going to Sharpton's National Action Network Convention this weekned in NYC?  They are going to have many African-American politicians and community leaders there talking about a lot of the issues raised on this website.  If you are thinking about going, PM me because I would like to meet some of you.

Here's the site with the itinerary:

Black Law Student Discussion Board / Where are the black leaders?
« on: March 30, 2006, 02:18:37 PM »
I am starting this post as a reply to a recent post that I saw today which contained a New York Times article on the state of African-American males today.                               http://www.lawschooldiscussion.org/prelaw/index.php/topic,57884.0.html The conversation in the replys dealt with the article, but turned into a conversation asking where the black leaders are.  In no attempt to hijack this post, I felt the topic so important to dicuss that an independent main topic should be generated from that.  I thank Breadboy for starting this discussion.

SO, where are the charasmatic black leaders like there were not so long ago?  Are they playing the background/behind the scenes of institutions in power, voicing their concerns for the African-American population?  Have they transformed into a different form, as teachers, parents and celebrities ( :-\ )?  Do we consider Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson to be leading the charge?  Please, what are your thoughts?

Studying for the LSAT / Diagnostic test HELP!
« on: March 29, 2006, 02:36:10 PM »
I took my first diagnostic test in class yesterday and got a really crappy score.  I got about 85% of the questions I answered right, but I did not answer a lot of them.  This could be attributed to the naivety that the score is calculated from the correct answers alone, rather than the score being calculated from the "amount" of correct answers.  Should I even take this attempt seriously and see this score as my jump off score or should I take the test over with this new piece of info in mind? 

Secondly, how do I go about finding a study group in NY?

Thanks

Affirmative Action / STOP COMPLAINING ABOUT AA.
« on: March 07, 2006, 11:54:46 AM »
The action does a lot of good for people.  And I guarantee that the hardships that most of the people that get in by AA have had to go through, throughout their lives, trumps any feelings that you have about not getting into your school of choice.

Besides, not all URM's have low scores and/or GPA's, and I guarantee you can find a member of the majority admitted into a class with lower numbers.

And MOST important, diversity makes the learning atmosphere better.  Who wants to be in a room with people that think the same way.  Especially in law.

Studying for the LSAT / Study Groups in NYC????????
« on: March 06, 2006, 12:42:43 PM »
Hi All,

I just signed up for a Kaplan class and I live in NYC.  I know that the class will not be enough to really give getting an excellent score my best shot, so I am trying to find a way to fit myself into a study group in NYC for the LSAT.  Does anyone have any suggestions in going about finding a group?

I just signed up for my Kaplan class for the June LSAT.  I just wanted to see if there are any brothers and sisters out there about to step-up to the plate too.  ;D
