Compelling Personal Statement and LOR's. Former gang member/been stabbed in torsow/ scars to prove it. Not proud of it, just stating the facts. Left gang and decided to attend college at 22 yrs. old after best friend was sentenced to 18 years in prison (fed time-no parole). REALLY turned my life around
Started a youth mentorship program here in Atlanta....My Brother's Keeper which links underprivileged black males with black male college students.
I'm shooting for T-14. HYS and other top of the heap schools etc.
What are my chances?
There's a lot of shooting in this thread.
It speaks volumes of you clowns' character in regard to denigrating the OP. This brotha' is shooting to do somthing positive for his community in lieu of the previous polar choice. The whole act of concieving an idea in your mind is akin to shooting for a thing, at one point we have all shot for a thing, and will continue to shoot. Talk about unconscionable. And law dog you should know better considering the fact that you're a black man; you of all people should know much kudos the OP deserves for turning his life around. I apologize for you (LawDog) on behalf of all black people.
I appreciate you supporting the OP, but don't you think you are being a bit too sensitive? Come on man, you know good and well I am down. You aren't counting me in that group, are you? I advised him to push forward. If I was a hater, I wouldn't have done that. And if I did not say it before, I am extremely proud of him for turning his life around
. My bad for not saying that up front...I thought it was redundant b/c of my advice.
It was just a joke, and if Steve Harvey, Jamie Fox and Chris Rock can joke about aspects of gang bangin', it should not be that big of a deal. But I'll say this, everyone does need to give OP his due respect.I wish my cousins would have realized that they, too, could have been lawyers.
