Studying for the LSAT / Re: String em' up
« on: April 24, 2004, 10:54:43 AM »
Hey guys, I was half or more kidding....I am actually quite cognizant of tax payers money. and I still put in more than the 40 hours a week that I actually get paid for. I have worked more than 70 hours on several occasions just recently, without ovetime.  I thought I would get some type of response like that, but I guess my humor didn't show through to well. It was totaly tongue in cheek  But, in my position it does comes and go, and somedays nobody is looking to move their company to Ohio...so I study.  I thought I had better clear that up.  Inthe end my boss doesn't care because I perform, bottom line.  I'll be careful in the future to post something that might upset people...but its good to see that people do care about tax payers money anyway.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Confusing questions from prep. LSAT

I think the reason B is correct is that she "decides not to do it".  if she had "refused to do it", then I think E is correct. I agree it was tempting to stay away from B because there was no mention of future suffering, but since it is a priciple question, not an inference question....oh hell what the f*ck kind of question is that

IS the correct answer B?

If you were thinking like I was, you probably narrowed it down to answers B&C, am I right?  If so, the reason I say it is B is that C would actually strengthen the argument to experiment, would it not? Or, perhaps you narrowed it down to B&E in which my reasoning for E being incorrect is below.

A is incorrect since the dog is not suffering pain
D is incorrect because the animal is healthy and prospects are not dim
E is incorrect because of the strong, absolute verbage

That's my take, perhaps other experienced LSAT takers can weigh in.  Please let me know what the right answer is, cuz now I curious

Law School Admissions / White Males URM
« on: April 22, 2004, 12:15:30 PM »
I thought some of you might find this funny: I was talking to a friend of mine last night who I roomed with at O.U. and he told me he got a full ride for his masters in Special Education because he was a URM as a male in that field.  I just started laughing and he couldn't believe that he got a scholarship for being male. so I guess it works both ways, huh.  BTW he isn't what I would call a stellar student. In fact, I am convinced he only wanted to be a teacher in the first place so he can have summers off.  anyway, I thought this board might find that interesting.

Incoming 1Ls / Re: Does Race REALLY count?
« on: April 20, 2004, 07:15:32 AM »
I am a white male, and was fortunate to have lived where I did and attend the public schools I did. I had to beg my parents to let me go to public school! I must admit, though, that while I am not against AA, there are some serious intellectual inconsistencies on the part of its proponents. But putting that aside for a moment,
the main reason I don't care about AA is that if these minorities are only there bc they are minorities, they won't last anyway.  And in the workplace I will clearly excell over them anyway...I don't feel threatend at all bc I will be better than them if they are truly not diserving, right?  The proof will always be in the pudding

I know this doesn't address the issue of acceptance, but think for a minute...how much of your life is dramtically disadvanted bc you had to go to law school X instead of Law school Y.  If that is the biggest disadvantage someome faces in his lifetime, that person should consider themselves lucky. Take my experince with racism as a white guy (and yes as much as people want to beleive it is a one-way street it is not) Imagine being the only white guy in a common-holding cell in downtown Cincinnati at 3:00 in the morning and being beaten simply bc you are white...now that is racism at its worst! trust me, I wasn't thinking of how lucky I was at that moment.  Oh, btw DUI was the reason...later reduced to RO.

Also, I beleive that economics needs to be the determining factor of AA as others have stated.  There isn't one minority community in America at more of a disadvantage than appalachia-a region of all whites. I went to college near there and when I went into the communities for volunteer work it woke me up to the fact that disadvantage strikes everyone regardless of color.
