Affirmative Action / Re: I'm going to assume that.....

Most people who do that tend do be, um, how to put this delicately, mm, let's say, they tend to be somewhat limited in their vocabulary. 

you've done a scientific study on this or are you just generalizing based on a limited data set?

Oh girl, Harvard did a study and it was all proven and stuff.   Thanks for your contribution.

so more the latter.  got it.

Awwwww, snap.

A kid I went to school with got into GW with a 155 LSAT, 3.2 GPA.  He and I grew up in the same affluent suburban neighborhood, attended the same schools, and he gets into a school he's not qualified to attend just because he's hispanic.  Here's the thing, this guy thinks he should also get scholarships.  He's been looking at LSN and he says that people like himself with poor LSAT scores have been given scholarships at top 25 colleges.  This annoys me.  Not so much that he got into some great schools where he was well below their medians, but because he assumes that the color of his skin entitles him to even more privileges.  I thought AA sounded like a pretty good idea until I realized that rich, ungrateful little turds like him not only want to get into schools they are unqualified for but they also want to take scholarships away from students far more qualified to be there.
My skin color was not a privilege.  I've had a hard life.  If some college wants to give me some dough for my education I'd be a fool to turn it down.  @#!* all y'all who think that the LSAT is everything.  I am going to get a 160 on my LSAT and I'll be at a top 10 school next year...with $$$$ female dog.  I hope you end up at the bottom of your class and I end up with your f-ing job in biglaw.


Yes, you are Yale bound for sure.

Yea female dog maybe I will get into Yale.  You didn't lead the life I did.  Your ancestors didn't deal with being slaves.  You guys owe us for taking us from Africa.  You are going to PAY and you can start by me getting my happy ass into law school.  If you don't like it you can kiss my black ass.


YOU =  ;D >:( :o ::)

Where should I go next fall? / Texas vs Columbia
« on: March 29, 2008, 06:31:44 PM »
I live in Austin.  I have a fiancee and a house here.  I got into UT.  The tuition is in state, they've offered me a nice scholarship, so here I am LONG decided that UT is the school for me....BUT I'm second guessing myself.  I also got into Columbia.  I've not been offered any money, so the debt would be huge, I mean, it's NYC after all.  I've read a lot of stuff on here about going to the best school you can get into, but TX is just so easy.  If I go to Columbia, I have to sell the house, and do the long-distance thing with my honey - again - he just got back from completing his residency in NC.  A new perspective may help.  Thanks.

I think the OP is right in the sense that people are going to assume their black classmates are there because of AA (even if unwarranted). I'd hate to be a black person that got a 175 on the LSAT. I'd have a female dog of a time convincing people I was there out of merit :D


I wouldn't waste a second trying to convince some sorry hater that I deserve to be @ X Law School.  The only people I'll worry about are my professors; for them, my work will speak for itself.  Any student pathetic enough to waste mental energy on such inconsequential nonsense, such as my supposed "inferiority," will just have to get used to seeing me around.  I've already made my decision: I will not share my #s (even if I score a 175 on the JUNE LSAT LOL) with anyone @ my future law school. They'll just have to wonder...or squirm ;).


You're funny.  I think all your posturing is your way of convincing yourself that race based AA is fair.  I bet your praying for a good score so you can trumpet it to all who'll listen.   P.S.  ;)  :o  ???  ::) = a 147 on the LSAT.

Oh, dear! Are you still bitter about your failure to penetrate the T6?  :(



Awwwwwww, snap, girlfriend!

I was just giving friendly advice as far as the whole  :) ;) :D ;D is concerned.   Most people who do that tend do be, um, how to put this delicately, mm, let's say, they tend to be somewhat limited in their vocabulary.  It would have been more polite to say 'thank you', and never do it again. 
The crack about the T6 was uncalled for and factually incorrect.

Every white male I see at law school I am going to assume that they would not have been able to get the LSAT score and GPA (at the T25 UG school they attended) that they did if they had had the same heritage/trials as contemporary African Americans. 


heritage/trials as contemporary African Americans?

Does AA only apply to graduate school?  Many minorities got into their 4 year T25 school with the help of AA.  When does the actual education overcome the 'heritage/trials' of contemporary African Americans.

Affirmative Action / Re: Listing race on your application
« on: March 26, 2008, 07:33:56 AM »
Applicants who opt to leave the race/ethnicity question unanswered are most likely thought to be white--unless their applications indicate otherwise.  I'm black/gay and will check every applicable box when I apply this fall.  Believe that!

Oh trust me honey, we believe that.

That's wonderful, sweetheart.  ::)


Thank you, I thought so too.
