2. I posted my acceptance to Madison today, to also give SOME OF YOU HOPE that LSAT is not the ONLY way to a good school. That I got bad numbers, but a hell of a personal statment and letters of recommendations....that GOD WILLING, they MUST HAVE LIKED! And I think, if some of you read it, and knew about my life, maybe you'd give me a chance at law school too.
Very noble, but PLEASE tell us if you are a URM so you dont give false hope to others. Thanks.
Well, that's a problem because the URM thing is not someting that is cut and dry like that. For example, I'm Iranian. And Iranian is considered WHITE. But that's for most schools in the east. In California, when I applied to Loyola, they had a box for me to check that said "Middle Eastern." And then, for University of Hawaii, they didn't have a box for middle eastern but they had boxes for
Chinese, Japenese, Thai, Korean, Malaysian, Philipinos.....so for them, each one of Pacific Islander had a box.
So, I'm not 100% sure where I fall....some schools consider me white, others don't.
And I'm sorry, but did you say you were scoring in the 130's at one point?
