I'm moving to Canada. I swear... if this stupid ass country re-elects Bush, I will concede that Canadians are smarter than Americans and move to Vancouver to live with my mother-in-law. And all those who know how I feel about Canada... well, you understand what a grave statement this is.
URMs make up only about %15 of any given law school. And they score only about 8% less on the LSAT than non-URMs. Also, I'm guessing at least 1/3 of the URMs they admit would likely get in even if they weren't URMs. So we're talking about 10% of admitted applicants there. The affect A.A. has on your chances of getting into any particular school is so insignificant it's hardly worth bitching about even if you don't agree with it.
For the love of God people, stop asking how many points you can improve by and go to this site:
and good luck with the LSAT
I have two good LORs. And I know that's all I need, but I could get one more that I'm not sure if it will be good or average or what. But it would be from a big-shot (the head of the department where I'm getting my masters). So should I take the gamble? I'm currently working for him so he does know me... I just don't know how much he likes me. I get mixed signals. He's hard to read.

If you read the accommodated testing forms carefully, it includes lack of sufficient intelligence as a psychological handicap for which you can get more time. Seriously!
Isn't that funny? So I think those of us who bombed the June test should apply for extra time, what do you think?
(note: in case you can't tell, I'm kidding... except about what LSAC says about intelligence... that's actually true)
