General board for soon-to-be 1Ls / Re: YLS 2010

Somewhere in this thread, someone said courses offerings for this coming year were online.

Anyone have a link?

I would apply to a few additional top schools if I were you.  Your numbers are not unrealistic for Columbia, NYU, Boalt.  Certainly, you should add UMich, especially if you are interested in staying in the Midwest.

Look at this way: you've got a small chance at Chicago/Penn, adding more schools like that ony increases that chance.

The applications are not that different from each other, and I think it's worth the extra time.  If money is an issue, then that's a different story.  Even then, however, I would strongly consider adding UMich.

Mine doesn't say "Do Not Pay"

You're lucky, my friend.  Mine has a whole lot of $ due on August 1st.

Luckily, it says that I've already paid $1.47!  Nice!

Has anyone heard back from either the YLS Financial Aid office or from your chosen lender after submitting all of that info to Yale like a month ago?

Just wondering, 'cause I haven't heard from Bank of America yet.

Furthermore, Hamilton grew up in the Caribbean, which was a region run on slavery.

So the qualification would be whether a tiny subset of the population of what, for all intents and purposes, was a different country (NY vs. VA) had raised an objection to a practice that had been continually used for thousands of years?

Look who's the moral relativist now.  This can't possibly be how you judge such an idea.  Rape, murder, confinement, and shunning have been used for thousands of years throughout the world to keep women down.  Can men in rural Pakistan say that honor killings are fine by the standards of their time because only a subset of a population of another country feels they aren't?  Does that suddenly change when a subset swings from 49% to 51%? 

Washington lacked the foresight, intelligence, and compassion of his abolitionist peers.  It's not like there was no way for him to have known better.  He just chose not to do the right thing.  I don't see what's so hard about this.

Furthermore, Hamilton grew up in the Caribbean, which was a region run on slavery.

Even further more, many northerners held slaves or supported slavery and many southerners were abolitionists.  For example, most slaves.

Sometimes, Northerners even grew up in slave-owning societies in the North, believed in slavery, owned slaves, then changed their minds and became abolitionists.  See, for example, Ezra Stiles.


Washington is one of the greatest Americans to ever live.  (He's my favorite all-time)  But he can be morally condemned for owning slaves.

Anyway who says otherwise thinks Thomas is stupid

It does bother me that it's anti-democratic; however, this has largely been a result of interpretations of the Constitution by the Supreme Court.

Yeah, that whole 3/5 thing was just a bad interpretation.  Should've listened to Hamilton, bb's favorite and mine as well.

Hamilton was so awesome.  There, my friends, was a founder.

Honestly, they all seemed like douches due to their approval of slavery and whatnot.  

Hamilton did not support slavery.  He was strongly opposed to it and wished for its abolition.


Although he and Morris are wonderful, Washington is my favorite.

Also, this argument is tedious.  Let's talk about fun founding fathers instead.
