« on: February 20, 2009, 10:37:38 AM »
and Asians make up 50% of the population at elite undergrad institutions and 35% of elite law schools, who will extreme/fundamentalist meritocracy advocates and anti-AA trolls blame for not getting into their school of choice?

to minority issues all you have to do is look in Alan Keyes' direction. The cherry on top would be an Alan Keyes/ JC Watts Presidential ticket. I guess I can only dream.








Sorry for the flame yall. I couldn't resist.

Why so much emphasis on the prestige of the firm. Is there something that I am not getting? Given most firms pay the same with the exception of 2 or 3, wouldn't it make more sense to pursue depth/quality of work and quality of life. Is it profit per partner? What is it that I am missing?

I just went to LSAC to see if my GPA had been calculated and it has. The problem is my cumulative GPA is a 2.9 and they calculated it as a 2.3. What the #@$%? Any ideas on what I can do

Black Law Student Discussion Board / Black Women going into biglaw...

do you think the enormous salaries you all will be earning will pose a problem in your romance life?

Most men have problems making less than women, but even a very liberal minded educated man in his late 20s or early 30s would shudder at the idea of a young lady he is dating bringing in close to 200K a year.

Black Law Student Discussion Board / Damn shame
« on: December 01, 2007, 05:05:30 PM »
I sat to take LSAT for a second time today in hopes of getting a 2 or 3 point increase. I was oblivious to this the first time I took it, but I noticed that out of the 200 or so people that were spread out amongst 4 different rooms there was exactly 4 Black men including myself  :'(

Of course there were a gang of Sisters. This might have already been said, but we def. need some very aggresive initiatives to recruit Black men to law. The sad thing is I live in DC (chocolate city) I guess that doesn't have anything to do with the price of tea in China
