Law School Admissions / Re: UCLA Waitlist
« on: January 16, 2008, 10:56:30 PM »
I would never pick LA over Berkley, that's just dumb. UCLA is so freaking over-rated and overly selective.



*BTW, i'm ultra bitter because I got rejected for Undergrad*

Brings back horrible memories... as  USC says...FUCLA

Because this wasn't a legitimate conversation, you (tried to) isolate and target urMom to make her feel bad about her well earned acceptance to NYU. That makes you at tool. The only reason it didn't work is because urMom is awesome enough to know not to pay attention to you, and other people stood up to support her. You, on the other hand, are alone and pathetic. You won't do  well at ANY law school with that attitude because there's so much you just don't understand. 




Why are you all talking about each others mothers..how rude!!

So the moral of this story is...

The UCLA waitlist board turned into race debates...I told you everything goes back to race

If schools want to select their applicants arbitrarily, they're free to do so.  However, it's unfair that they should place such weight on GPA/LSAT combo for one portion of their applicants and not another.

170+ should absolutely have the best shot at Yale.  The LSAT is the best predictor we have for law school success.

And complaining about AA is the best predictor we have that someone is an insecure tool.

hhah "heritage line"=  race. BTW what is wrong with that, people have done it for years to keep URM away from places, now they are merely trying to right the wrongs...And she does have a 164, which is not like a 155.

Anyways, I could care less..if law schools want to admit peeps based on race, or LSAT, or GPA...none of these modes are fair, but hey, they have to do it some how.

I've argued earlier that the manner in which ppl get admitted is unfair, but what exactly is fair. I don't think that ppl with a 170 or higher should overwhelming get into yale, but they do, and so on and so forth....

Has a person who is from LA, UCLA sucks...don't go there. They are all about the name, I don't even know how their law school is so high up.

Chicago is better, even if the sun shines in LA

As I said, I have no issues with URMs who are AA admits numbers-wise but have other interesting factors.  If urMom had other interesting factors, she would have fared better at Michigan and UCLA.  Michigan particularly, since it's notorious for letting in interesting applicants even if they have iffy numbers.

I can't change the socio-economic system in any appreciable way.  So I complain.

Personally, I would feel that my accomplishments were being denigrated if I were admitted to a school based on the color of my skin.

I half agree with you...but the fact is throughout American History the "color of skin" has meant so much...and getting into a particular law school or undergrad. is nothing compared to the impact/disadvantages that a person with darker skin has endured.

why does this race convo always come up. It always seems like some non-URM gets pissed that an URM gets into a school that he/she does not. Maybe you should try to change the socio-economic system of America, that DOES disadvantage URM is many ways.

I think when the system does get transformed, then there can be equality in who gets admitted or not.

haha...wow...how humble of you! Well i'm not "an excellent writer" like this person, but I would be willing to read your essay.

Thruth, I was just looking at your LSN...what exactly are your amazing soft factors, if you don't mind my asking. I have good soft factors but I don't know if they are amazing like you.

Thanks
