This is a vintage piece! Whoever wrote this, should seriously consider a lucrative career in screen writing~

UCLA is a great school but in terms of getting in it sucks. Tuition keeps increasing and people who get in ( undergrad level) have to wait two years just to get in because of the huge waiting list back log. Law school might be different though.

I am French/Northern African (from Algeria) but also black. Northern African does not equate to being Arab. If you have been to Morocco or Algeria, you would then know that we come in all shades,colors, complexion, etc. and are from various ethnic backgrounds ( Berbers, Tuareg, Cabiles). Let's face it Northern Africans are mixed no matter how much you look at it, it is a known fact. You can be white, caramel, brown, yellow, high yellow and everything in between. You should know this if you have been there.
One thing to bear in mind is that we are not Arabs either but Northern African ( huge distinction). Study your history, we were colonized and heavily influenced by Arabs and although we speak Arabic we ARE NOT Arabs. Now, I happen to be clearly a woman of color ( no doubt about it) thus I feel extremely comfortable applying as a URM, oh and with only 2% of Algerians in the US, I think I speak from experience when I say that we are truly underrepresented.
I am a sophomore in the process of transferring to Boston University. By September 2010, I will be entering as a Junior.
My question is how soon should I apply to law school to be given priority consideration and start law school by Fall 2012?
Also, how early should I prepare for/take the LSAT?
