Law School Admissions / JAG OFFICER PROGRAM
« on: June 07, 2007, 10:46:42 PM »
 does anyone know anything about the jag officer program.  im a civilian right now who has been accepted to law school, however i may take a deferrment and join the reserves (marines) this summer.  id appreciate anyone who is a jag or knows about this!

im going to a recruiter next week but wanted some real life testimonies!


well....i once ranted about how i think the MLB and NFL should have to recruit minority players- i.e. european americans, irishmen, hawaiins, etc to make up for the under represented minority if law/med/professional schools have to.

obviously, there aren't enough blacks in the MLB and its MLB's fault for not recruiting in the ghettos.  in addition, there are too many latino's and its just not right, or so says gary sheffield.  

"The subject was players of my race and what we deal with and why they don't look in the inner cities for that same talent that they do in other places," he said.  (Gary Sheffield)

Law School Admissions / race gender box quibbles
« on: May 29, 2007, 10:26:27 AM »
ok, here is the scenario.

a white male fills out a law school application, only they mark the gender box "female" and the race box "black" or "hispanic" or "not white, etc"  or they keep "male" and simply claim another race. 

the admissions accept this person, and base it on his (her) 2 major qualifying statistics.

let's look both ways- scores could be high, but then again not- ive seen a black girl get into washington and lee with a 148 LSAT and a 3.9 gpa.  then, my friend who is white male, was rejected with a 168 LSAT and a 3.4 GPA.  this is all variable of course, but what would happen if someone lied about their race or color or both to get a hand up? 

so heres my question- lets say that big time program football players have hot ass coming to their door 24.7. 

i hope the same is for big time program law students?

Studying for the LSAT / kaplan prep test
« on: May 28, 2007, 10:12:06 PM »

Financial Aid / omg im screwed-
« on: May 25, 2007, 12:06:29 AM »
The budget at my school is set for 47k.  Peanuts as I understand.  How do i go about trying to get an increase in allotted budget?  I will get $20,500 from stafford and i plan on using access group or THE for the rest of the 27K- will they allow me to take more?  I have heard they will not.
