i always meant to as you MP, were you born in Montana?  You are the first person I know from there.

Nope, I was born in Washington at an Army Base - which leads me to a question I was thinking about as I was drying my hair (random I know): when you're asked for your hometown, what do you put? The town/city you live in currently, or the place you were born, or just the place you identify most with out of all the ones you've lived in?  Because I have 7 places I could possibly list, but I'm never sure which one.

ah i c.  how long have you lived there/where have you lived before?

i don't have your prob...i've lived in the same place since i was 2 months old

Same here.  My parents have been living in the same house for 35 years.

I guess that what I am trying to say is this...if we have integration, we have diversity.  We are going to have integration with or without Affirmative Action.  Logically, we can have diversity without Affirmative Action.  I fail to see the difference between integration and diversity - and by integration, I mean a racially mixed group of students, not assimilation. 

I haven't read the first few pages of this thread, but can you explain the bolded?  That doesn't seem right to me, but I'm probably not understanding it correctly.

By the way MP, did you know they close down Sturrow Drive on July 4th?  I was running along the esplanade a couple hours ago, and I see this couple roller blading down Sturrow Drive, and I was like holy *&^%  :o, those motherfuckers are dead.  Then I realized what was going on.

Seems like sleeping til noon is the thing to do today :P

So my day: I'm getting ready to go to a 4th of July party at my mom's friends. This necessarily involves us (me and Mom) running into some friends and acquaintances I haven't seen yet this summer).  They ask me what year I am or how old I am (one of the two), Mom proudly says I graduated from college in May, and THEN the lady we're talking to invariably goes, "You graduated from COLLEGE? But you look like a BABY - I thought you were FOURTEEN" (capitalized for emphasis). And then Mom says I'm going to UChicago Law, and the lady replies, "Law" with a blank look on her face, because the only law schools that register to Korean people in Montana are Harvard (appealing to the Korean side) and UMontana-Missoula (appealing to the Montana side). No bitterness, but I've been through this exchange way too many times this summer :P

Same here....sometimes it's followed with "oh, is that a good school?"  :-\

Yeah, I was just kidding of course.  I definitely want to hang out occasionally with people who know nothing about the law.  So I plan to make some friends at Northwestern Law School....zing!  ;)

3.82 (~3.77 LSAC?) History/Poli Sci double, LSAT: 167, Lots of leadership, URM + created a Native American Studies Program at my undergrad, great Recs (including a Duke JD who also taught there in the 90s), should well on my PS/DS.

T14 + Vandy/UT/GW/Emory

It really depends on how good your soft factors are and how well you present them. You probably have a good shot at Yale, but the retake might be worth it to retake. You should have CCN, and I would say a really good shot at YS, but if you think you could do better on the retake it might be worth it.

 :D I hope you are right!

FWIW, I think he's right - I don't see any need for you to apply outside T14.  I would also strongly consider a retake.

The fact that UChi wasn't in NY was a big plus in there favor.  I really wanted to go away (thus me not applying to NYU bc I wouldn't have gone there).  But I do like the fact that I have friends here and can get away from the ls crowd if I want.

Well my law school has people like sillyberry and MP, so I don't think that will be an issue for me.  ;)

To celebrate the holiday, I'm gonna try to eat 66 hot dogs, like my hero Joey Chestnut.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Too early to start studying for the LSAT?

Don't study until at most 4-5 months before. 

Isn't that what everyone is pretty much saying? 

Could have been I only read the first two replies...I stopped at the egregious misuse of "to" at the beginning of Jeffort's post.

Lol fair enough.

I don't think you'd need to apply outside the T14, unless you have some specific reason for wanting to go to UCLA.
