General Off-Topic Board / anyone catch that article
« on: January 10, 2005, 04:27:13 PM »
in my sunday paper...it was I think National Journal it was all about Hurting Blacks.  Talked about how AA actually hurts AAs in regards to law school admissions.  It said that in the long run, less AAs are successful at bar passage, employment growth etc because they are not as qualified for LS as they should be.  It said that making admissions "color blind" (however they can do that) would actually make AAs more successful because the ones accepted would be accepted based on qualifications only

probably spoken about 10000 times on here but I thought it was interesting anyway!

LSAC and LSDAS / incomplete.....
« on: January 03, 2005, 04:12:11 PM »
well..I had an incomplete in an ECON class back at my first school in 1999.  I was passing but was having some personal problems and had a great professor....what will that to to my LSDAS gpa? 

this is what the school says about incompletes....

A student shall receive a report of "Incomplete" in any course in which the course work has been passing up until the time of a documented precipitating incident or condition, but has not been completed because of illness or another reason which in the opinion of the instructor justifies the report. (Section 8.53.20 University Manual). Students receiving a grade of Incomplete should make necessary arrangements with the instructor to complete the work prior to the following midsemester. As with any grade, an Incomplete may not be changed after a period of two years.

« on: December 28, 2004, 01:57:40 PM »
any computer people hanging out here?

I am having problems with a router I just bought.  It is hooked up to my vaio desktop.  I have a powerbook that has the airport card in it.  My problem lies with the security.  I tried WEP and WPA and neither "password" I set will work on my powerbook.  the powerbook says "password not valid".  well, yes it is as i just set it!
my other problem is i can't get roadrunner to work on the powerbook now...it says check account manager or DNS settings...wtf wtf wtf. 

sigh.....
