Minority and Non-Traditional Law Students / are we all selfish bastards?

okay i am fairly new here, and i can not sleep so i wandered over to this section, after deciding to waste time by looking at my "competition" (i.e clicking on law schools i applied to and then checking the LSN numbers of those pending/accepted/rejected/etc) and i would get really excited to see a few of those with significantly lower LSAT/UGPA than me that got accepted, only to click on their LSN page and realize they are a minority..this went on for pretty much all the schools i searched

at first it made me a lil mad, but i am actually pro AA to an extent, in that I believe it is necessary to review an applicant's file as a whole, to see if they may be able to lead to diversity in the entering class..but these are all rational thoughts I think of later...when im skimming the numbers all i ended up getting was depressed..

and i dont want to repeat arguments and turn this into another pointless thread, but my question to all those against AA: are you just bitter you can't get into Harvard/Yale with a 165/3.8??  and i've noticed in most of these threads, those defending AA are mostly (and repeat: i said MOSTLY b/c im sure there are many exceptions) those who are of URM status. 

so I'm just curious, how much of this AA bashing/supporting do you think is just pure selfishness?

Incoming 1Ls / Grade trends

i'm positive this must have been addressed already..but im fairly new, so i figured i would bring it up again

how important do you think a positive grade trend is? esp if first semester freshman is significantly lower than the rest of your undergraduate transcript? do you think it weighs heavily or do they mostly look at your overall UGPA and then index you?

Incoming 1Ls / how much will my app be delayed??
« on: December 19, 2005, 08:25:52 PM »
so today i get a lovely letter from Brooklyn Law saying my app is incomplete b/c they havent received my dean's certification.  my stupid ass university was supposed to have sent that out dec 1st as long as we got our information in on time, which i did.

im going tomorrow to my pre law office to complain. brooklyn and BU were the only schools that i applied to that actually wanted a dean's certification. so how much will my app be delayed now, assuming they receive it soon?

this may sound like a dumb question but is it a bad/stupid idea to go to law school in a state that you don't want to consider taking the bar in or practicing in?
