Minority Topics / Re: LGBT Thread for Fall 2007 Cycle
« on: December 26, 2006, 05:20:12 PM »
UIUC is 3 points away from your 30-90 request, but I can tell you what it's like for undergrad.  Honestly though, I think undergrad, especially at such a big school, is going to be way different from law school.  Even the biggest law schools don't have classes much above 500.  I did what you seem to be hoping for- getting used to it, getting comfortable, telling when asked- during freshman/sophomore year but I had a huge selection of people and groups to choose to spend time with, so I chose carefully.  After spending time with them and coming out to them enough, it wasn't scary to be honest with people I didn't know as well.

it seems like what might be important in your search would be to make sure the schools you are interested in have active LGBT groups, along with nearby civilization and maybe a larger school community. 

Also, I know it's not midwest, but Northeastern (in Boston) calls itself the queerest law school in the country. I've gotten two lgbt mailings from them, one at school, and one to my parents' house (I have NO idea how they got that address, but it happened to come christmas eve when i was there for dinner) which had a handwritten note from the dean of admissions, who is queer.

Today rocks because rape charges were FINALLY dropped against the Duke Lacrosse players!!! Finally, partial justice!!

is it bad that i get my news updates from lsd?

in this case, yes, because it's not really something to celebrate.

Has anyone heard from NYU recently?  Do you think there will be another group complete e-mail in the next week or so? 

I got the NYU complete e-mail on Monday.  sent it 11/24.


Got duplicate complete e-mails from Berkeley exactly an hour apart yesterday afternoon.

co-worker's leftovers + lunch hour pay after i stayed in the office so they could all go out to lunch.

Money > socializing with co-workers.

Probably true.

especially when all your co-workers are at least 15 years older and conservative christians who have never left the midwest...

left over pizza from round table.

I guess I won't be seeing you at Focaccia in that case... It's too damn cold to eat outside, and I have to go christmas shopping. Maybe the gap will let me eat my salad in their dressing room...

pun intended?

I was getting stuff at my permanent address back in September.  I put my school address in for permanent after I discovered that, and no mail has been sent anywhere but here ever since.


My sister sent me this today: http://insidehighered.com/news/2006/12/19/gilligan
it references this site: http://www.truthwinsout.org/  which I don't remember ever hearing about before.

I mention it here because Gilligan is a law professor at NYU.  I had heard of her in relation to Women's Studies stuff but never law.  This grain of info makes me like NYU a bit more.  I went complete there yesterday-- a happy coincidence.

Read this, Jer :P
http://www.thisislondon.co.uk/news/article-23378331-details/Vegetarians+are+more+intelligent%2C+says+study/article.do

that's my favorite realistic article on vegetarianism.

this is my favorite "Onion-esque" article, though it's not exclusively veggie and the author isn't joking:

on topic- crepes for lunch!
