General board for soon-to-be 1Ls / Re: UVA Bound Thread

uva is my top choice this fall. *hopes*

lsat > gpa (cept for berkerly/standford/yale). difficult school depends again on the school. cornell perfers ivy, harvard perfers harvard, columbia/nyu/most schools dont care too much bout ur school long as its decent, at least top 100, and ur gpa is solid

school gpa = 3.78
lsac gpa = 3.50


I am A- King. like 80% of my grades are A-, cept my school counts as 4.0 and lsac counts as 3.66. that .34 dropped me quite a bit.

I've head the older lsats are much easier and have easier curves, so what would a 166 on a feb 95 lsat be worth about today? That was 16 wrong, 8 on the games section :(. 10 wrong would have been 170.

Cheap housing, try Greenbelt or PG County in general in Maryland. There is a metro stop there (Greenbelt), def cheaper than DC or VA. Largo metro stop and the housing nearby are also worth a look at. PG is about 70% black in just your not use to "diversity."

VA has the worst traffic in the nation behind NYC. It is just terrible.

As for crime, DC is very same outside just some small parts in SW. NW and crime is a joke. PG does have pretty high crime but I've grown up there last decade, not that bad. You get use to it I guess.

tramp stamp!

Affirmative Action / Re: Can I apply as Black if I'm 10% black?
« on: April 25, 2006, 03:25:55 AM »
ya ive always wondered that. i dont plan on applying as any minority, but was someone from the county with the highest percentage of blacks in the nation, as well as one for a gf, growing up in an all black neighborhood, public school whole life which was 80% black easy, I mean since it is what i consider myself, as at least most law schools put it, if i did consider myself part black, how could they say no? esp if many of the disadvantages to blacks are poor schools, no opportunities, both of which would apply to me, are the reasons for AA, not because they are a different color, which wouldnt allow to me.
