A+ = unfair. 

So too, parents with lotsa money

So too, untold racism that URMs face


It stinks. 

General Off-Topic Board / Re: Buying a puppy
« on: July 08, 2007, 02:02:15 PM »

If I take a year off, I plan on buying a puppy so we can adjust to eachother before I'm a 1L.   I'm looking at getting a Shih Tzu or a Lhasa Apso (the breeds I had growing up).  While I'd love to get a rescue dog, most of the dogs in the local shelters are rather large animals which is not an option as I live in an apartment. Anyone have advice on how to find a breeder and a healthy dog?  I want to make sure that I don't get a dog coming from a puppy mill.

There's a bumper sticker which says
The top ten reasons to adopt
were killed in a shelter last year

If you think it wise and are sure you can offer support and love for their entire lives, adopt.  Consider adopting two to keep one another company.

But I implore you, never ever purchase a living, breathing, feeling and thinking individual.  Never.

had to erase a few times on the test...
Do I really need to be worried??

I erased several times -- including the essay -- and it was scored just fine.

Hey Pat,

Myshkin is right.  It looks nice ... but numbers are pretty much all they care about.

Totally.  It serves you.  To add to Jolie's comments, it may prove to be a professional asset by demonstrating that you care about image, competently operate in several sub-cultures and have confidence.

Incoming 1Ls / Re: BC Law -- very conservative?

There are surely hundreds or thousands of lesbian/gay/transgender/bi/etc. people who attend BC.  Perhaps this is an opportunity to attend and start a fire! 

Important and just causes are not yet represented at a ton of schools.  Yet, sympathetic students/faculty/staff abound almost everywhere, and it just takes (a whole bunch of) work ( -- perhaps more than it should).


In my history classes, there were a few students who seemed over than 29, but the often contributed a ton of valuable stuff (with a few exceptions).  Education is something awesome, and it's nothing to feel alienated about at all.

Matthies, I just want to reiterate what you've heard all your life:  you're awesome

Does this happen often?  What's typical workload / compensation?

I spoke with Wende yesterday and she says that as of right now we can come on Sunday, but she is still working on Saturday.  My flight is already booked for Sunday  morning.  I fly in at about 10am.  Does the bus or train come from there to the school area? 

You can always take the Super Shuttle or Sky Ride.

You all must be so excited/anxious!!  I can't believe it's already been a year since. . .
Right on.  When I visited, I took the sky ride ($6, I think) to a light rail stop and the train to campus.  There are two different routes that accomplish this and your selection will depend on timing of when your flight comes in v. bus leaving.
