Affirmative Action / Re: I'm going to assume that.....
« on: March 12, 2008, 01:39:50 PM »
Every black female I see at law school does not deserve to be there.  I will assume she is there because of AA.  I will assume she is less intelligent than her classmates.  I will assume that she will find it hard to graduate.  AA - making an ass out of YOU and ME.
I think you could have put that in a more constructive, less bitchy kinda way.  I just looked at LSN and saw that someone got into W&M with a 144 LSAT.  Of course that person is going to black and female.  That doesn't mean, however, that she is stupid.  I disagree with AA based on color.  For all we know, Ms 144 LSAT is rich and had the best of schooling, and doesn't deserve that kind of break, but she got it, so let's keep the conversation respectful.

Affirmative Action / Re: States ending AA

I guess I just don't get it.  The LSAT should be the great equalizer.  I mean, it's a test that you study for, so why should being a black female mean that you can score 10/12 points less than a school's median and still get in?  I know a few well to do black chicks who went to my school.  Why should they get the big LSAT boost?  I guess AA is wrong when it's about color.  If you are poor, disadvantaged, and didn't have the benefit of a good education, a little AA is great, but if you're some well off person of color who had access to a decent education you're kind of cheating the system, right?

Where should I go next fall? / GW PT or University of WA

I didn't think I had a chance of getting into GW with my 153 LSAT but amazingly I got in.  Needless to say, I'd be going ft after the first year. I want to work in WA or CA.  Am I just being a prestige hog choosing GW over UofWA?
