Studying for the LSAT / LSAT question
« on: July 22, 2011, 06:33:13 PM »
I have a question and hopefully someone can shed some light on the use of the word consecutively vs. immediately. Specifically as it relates to the LG bible from Power score on page 53 ( Drill # 5) question 5.1

In the which one cannot be true scenarios, when the test makers say that F and R are played consecutively does this mean immediately before or after?  or F and R are played sometime after or before? I am confused, probably reading more than what it is, but still confused nevertheless..

Thanks,

Hi,

What would be the cut-off month in order to start law school in Sept 2013?  I actually won't be graduating until the end of the Summer 2013 ( August).  Is it then just too late for me?  If not, how early should I apply?

This was sent to me from For people of color :

Many of you on this board may have already heard of this program, but for those unfamiliar with it, it sounds like a wonderful opportunity. It is well worth it. I applied last week... It is essentially for urm.

Good luck everyone!

Thanks, that's good advice-- who knows I might be able to rack-up the URM recipient award of the year for a change! On a serious note, this seems to be the wisest avenue, my main point was that although I am Northern African, I don't want to be labeled as white just because I am from that area. I  think that this rule unfairly assumes that  all Northern Africans are white, when this is clearly not the case.

I agree. It looks like, I'll be checking "other" instead. However, I tend to think that NF (North Africans) should be represented as URM with only 2% of us in the States, it gets lonely out here! What about having a diversity statement?

Thank you for your honest feedbacks, I appreciate that, and glad you like my pics:-)

Hi BLSDB,

I read a posting in the Minority forum stating that Northern Africans do not fall as URM, so here's my dilemma, I am Northern African (Algeria), and while I am fully aware that Northern African fall under the category of Caucasian, I feel that it does not capture the majority of Northern Africans as Northern Africans are extremely mixed race people, I consider myself a moor and my family is a mix of Berber and Kabile. Being labeled as white, is the biggest hype I have ever heard of! I consider myself to be a woman of color, bottom line. While I realize, I could pass for just about anything under the rainbow (I have been mistaken for Iranian, Latina, and even Pakistani but never white) , I want to represent myself as accurately as possible. I also do not want to misrepresent myself as an African American or White. But I do not consider myself white. Any advice on how to approach the subject of race on my statement ? I am including link of my profile. Any feedback on how  to tackle this subject in the way that makes most sense is greatly appreciated.




Thank you and god bless!

Where should I go next fall? / Thoughts on UC Irvine School of Law?

The school is not accredited by the ABA but according to Dean Erwin Chemerinsky, the school will fervently seek its ABA accreditation "ASAP". One attractive factor, is that the school offers a generous financial/scholarship package. Any advice?

Thanks,

Amel
