Choosing the Right Law School / Re: why i suddenly love U of Chicago

I don't need statistics.  Drive through there sometime, park your car for more than an hour, and see if you still have your hubcaps, hood orinament, and mirrors.  I've been there enough times to know that it's an extremely dangerous area after dark (and the only reason it's not during the day is that the crack dealers are all passed out from the night before). 

Best of luck if you end up going there--you'll need it.

i am not planning on going to U of C or even applying and I don't live in Hyde Park so i have nothing to gain by writing this.

U of C is very theoratical when it comes to meaning law.  This mean they teach u and expect u to understand the theories and principles more so than practical applications.

As far as the attitude and environment, U of C is just like harvard or yale.  It is built on tradition, reputation, and the idea that it is only avaiable to the elite.  It just as stuck up as the other schools that so many on here want to go to.

Now what really pisses me off is your description of HYde Park.  APparently u have never lived there or visited the area for extended periods of time.  Hide park as a middle to upper class neighborhod with good schools.  the crime rate is not any higher than other neighborhoods with the same economic make=up in the city.

You are basing ur comments on outdated and inaccurate information.  Since i live in chicago and know the hyde park area fairly well, I think i am able to provide a realistic description and I have to say ur description is total off.  where did u get ur information?

i havent had any problems.  My LORs were processed no more than a week after i sent them and reports have been sent to schools they day after they were requested.  i guess i am lucky


i have a love/hate relationship with the ACLU

my PS is a combination.

i had four 3 professors and 1 supervisor.

i would think ur current school would have it on file.  trying calling records and registration at ur school and asking if they have it.

i didn't realize law schools asked for those scores until i started doing applications.

B, but not for ur reasons.

you should go to the school that is the best fit.  u may have more opportunities at the lower ranked school to take on variou sleadership opportunities, to get on law review, or whatever.

i think u have to evaluate schools based on other things besides rankings given by other people.  those people don't know what is best for u.

but thats my opinion


Yes, I am saying Affirmative Action is unfair to individual non-minorities. I am also saying Affirmative Action is unfair to individual minorities like Marcus Cole who wish to be judged by the content of their character and not by the color of their skin.

Your fallacy above is a direct result of thinking in terms of collectives and not in terms individuals. It is true that non-minorities are in the majority. That follows from the very definition of the terms. But that does not mean it is right or fair to deny individuals the opportunities they earned on account of their merit merely because they were born with the wrong skin color.

but society has and still does think in terms of collectives.  its ok to think in terms of collectives when u exclude groups, or disenfranchise them as long as they aren't ur group.  but when there is a PERCEPTION that you group isn't being treated fairly, and this unfairness is simply b/c of the collective group, you want to be judged as an individula.  no has denied u anything.  again u r blaming AA and minorities but what about the white guy that took YOUR seat.  it is more likely that another white person was grant admission over.  don't u think if ur app was better than anyone else be they whit, black, asian, or whatever u would have gotten in?  look at the picture man, no one could take YOUR seat if u had what it took to get it in the firts place.

it does.  thank u
