Black Law Student Discussion Board / Oprah - MLK Day Special
« on: January 21, 2008, 06:56:32 PM »
Oprah does it again.

Every year on January 21, America pauses to remember Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., one of the most influential leaders in our nation's history. A Baptist minister by trade, Dr. King used the power of words to inspire a generation and change the course of history.

In 1963, Dr. King stood on the steps of Washington, D.C.'s Lincoln Memorial and delivered a powerful message to a crowd of more than 200,000 people. His speech, which is now taught in classrooms across the country, is best known for its powerful declaration, "I Have a Dream."

Dr. King's words raised the nation's awareness of the civil rights movement and helped him become the youngest person ever awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. Before his life was cut short by an assassin in 1968, the United States government passed the Civil Rights Act of 1964, as well as the the Voting Rights Act of 1965.

Now, 45 years after Dr. King shared his dream with the world, Oprah returns to the spot where he stood on that fateful day in 1963 to celebrate his legacy. "We honor his message of hope," she says.

I don't think the LSAT would use angry lyrics, even though I like the attitude. I think it would use something taunting like the Rolling Stones "Time, its on my side, yes it is" and after the test it would use "Ob-la-di, ob-la-da, life goes on, brah!... Lala how the life goes on."

I personally felt as if I were the victim of a drive-by after the LSAT, but to each his own, I suppose.

Is it okay 2 laugh at this comment?

Truth, I'm still waiting to hear from CLEO.  However, is application to the ABA Legal Opportunity Scholarship part of the CLEO acceptance process? 

I've applied to the ABA before but never to CLEO.  I didn't know the two were part of the same process (until recently, I didn't know it was the same org).

So, let me get this straight. After applying for CLEO, if you are accepted you must also apply for the ABA Legal Opportunity Scholarship, right?  Additionally, everyone attending CLEO will not receive a scholarship, only those chosen for the ABA Legal Opportunity Scholarship, right?  The ABA part is needs base and the CLEO part (attendance) can go either way (Need base - $200/Need but above max - $2000)?

Where should I go next fall? / Re: PA or TX Schools? 158 LSAT/3.84GPA

There will probably be responses from posters w/info specific 2 your numbers.  While you wait, check out http//www.lawschoolnumbers.com and look at previous cycles (even this cycle) for schools located in PA and TX.  It should help some...  Your GPA is really solid.  Is it the cumulative used by law school admissions?

Not everyone receives the scholarship, and you can apply directly for the scholarship here - http://www.abanet.org/fje/losfpage.html

Thanks Truth, unfortunately for me its NEEDs Base:

"One of the primary criteria of the ABA Legal Opportunity Scholarship Fund is financial need."

I mean $2,000????? What do they expect???? CLEO is supposed to be for disadvantaged applicants. How many of us have $2,000 around for this??? LEO is free. If I get accepted to NYU, Cornell, or Columbia, then I'm going. Well, if I get accepted.

Disadvantaged, not destitute! duh ::)  Next thing, u'll expect them 2 pay your full law school tuition instead of the 5k scholarship.

Jimmini Cricket!!



you can get that 5k scholarship WITHOUT attending CLEO.

How??? I'm the reason CLEO exists.  lol

Here's a quote from TJSL's new release archive. If you go to the school's website and type CLEO in the TJSL search field, you will find archive links with pictures, comments, etc.

At the start of the CLEO Summer Institute, twelve of the 48 students had yet to be accepted into a law school. After the program, 100 percent of the students have been accepted to law schools Ė and many of those who hadnít been accepted will be attending top ten or top twenty law schools. ďThatís phenomenal,Ē said Dean Kransberger of CAPís success rate.

Congratulations to everyone with a acceptance!!  That's really spectacular news.
