Brief synopsis:

California Supreme Court has ruled that the state government has no jurisdiction over the choice of partner in marriage. Some opponents of this decision initiated prop 8, which if passed would reverse the decision made by the court.

(California state marriage law) "does not constitute a legitimate basis upon which to deny or withhold legal rights."

I'm considering taking the June 2009 LSAT and I'm worrying about burnout...not sure if now is too soon to start studying.

Which is better?: to take an LSAT course in January and study up through June, or start studying solo in January and then take an LSAT course in the spring, right before the June test.

My concern is that I want to make sure I implement the tricks I learn from the course with sufficient time to be ready for the test.  Is it crazy to start studying now for the June test?  I have my friend's old PowerScore books from a few years back to study from.

there's no such thing as starting too soon. I'd recommend taking the course at earliest convenience. Courses are never enough to reach your full potential. You need to study on your own. Get the techniques down and start studying on your own as much as you can.

Loyola admissions was kind enough to grant me one with an invitation to one of their law forum. Frankly, I do not have enough $ to apply to schools I have in mind. LSAC fee waiver is not an option because I do not meet the citizenship requirement. Anyone have some success stories?

pick up the phone and dial 1-(607) 255-5141. When someone answers, say "Hi, I mailed my dean certification 2 weeks ago and I still do not see it reflected on my app status. Could you please tell me if your admissions office received it yet? Thank you."

then depending on their response, take the appropriate course of action.

what exactly is "very likely to get a full scholarship"?

inconvenience will not deter me from bidding for a spot at UCLA. Ever.

I'm a fiscal conservative.  I believe that less government is better government.  I also believe that social issues should be determined on the state level regardless of my personal biases.

What exactly are "social issues"?  Who gets to join which country club?

"Sneakers with lights in the heels" and "feminists with hyphenated names"

Another thing, being Asian doesn't qualify you for URM, so that's not a card you have in your repertoire.

Technically, Asians are still URM, just not as "URM" as the black guy.
