1978 was the date that the Church allowed Black men to have the priesthood.  We could always be members.  This was a religious not a legal decision.  In the US a religion can, for the most part, run itself in ways that would violate civil law.

I don't care if mine is the only raised Black fist in a sea of 30,000 white people.  I'll hold it up unabashedly.  Mormonism detracts not a bit from my pride in my race.

P.S. - PISL must be on to me I got something in the mail today.

LOL, no, BYU.  The loan thing was interesting.  But, I don't think it's for me.  A non-ABA spin off of a school which itsn't all that great anyway?  I just wanted to see what people thought.  I am in a bad spot with only one admit (WNEC) and just atarting to gather alternates.

Yeah, there are not manny of us walking around.  The Action Report is a tabulation (provided by LSAC to your UGrad) that tells you which schools students from your institution applied to.  For each school you get the average GPA and LSAT score of all those who applied, the same numbers for all those who got in, and finally, the same numbers for all those who actually went.  You also get the number of admitted students who got other offfers.  Call your Pre-law Advisment Center.

So I got this from my pre-law office today (in part):

- They are still accepting applications for fall 2005
- They’re granting fee waivers to all students at my school interested in applying
- They are more than willing to fly seriously interested students from my school down to AZ to check out their school
- LSAT range: 151 – 156          GPA range: 2.8 – 3.8
- Because Phoenix is not accredited, you won’t be able to receive federal funding (tuition is $23,000 per year) but PhoenixLaw has private loan funds and you would borrow straight from the school.  If they are not accredited by your third year, you wouldn’t have to pay back the loans you took out.

I found that last one sort of interesting.  I have looked around the board and seen little but what I have seen is negative.  Have any of you locals had a chance to see it?  Did any of you got he the panal discussion? What did you think?  Anybody apply?

Incoming 1Ls / Re: Thoughts on buying a condo/house for LS?

I'm sorry... who are you people. Please don't take that the wrong way.  I am a 22 year old college senior graduating and going straight to LS and am wondering if the buying thing is normal for people in my position (cuz, I sure as heck can't afford a condo right now).  Are you all a few years out of college with jobs or families?  How are you getting the money to do this?

If the file, as it appears to, portrays a female who is under aged I would like to have it publicly noted that I had no intent of downloading a file with such content.  I assumed, from the post heading, that it was a news file containing current events.

LOL man, something tells me that if there was a place where being an average white guy would NOT be held against you in the precess BYU would be it.  Its just that BYU is the feeder school for BYU-LS.  They try to get (from the numbers I've seen) 50% of their class from BYU.  150 BYU students were admitted to BYU-LS last year, 100 went.  I wonder what the stats on BYU-H and BYU-I atudents getting to BYU-LS are.  Have you taken a look at your BYU-H's updated Action Report?

Thank you guys so much.  I have taken three big breaths INNNNNNNNNNNNNN and OUUUUUUUTTTT and have refocused on getting the money rather than being sad about not having it  :)

That is freak'en great!

"Dear Sir, you and your institution are like unto a monkey's ass!"
"Dear applicant, please come to my law school."

Hmm, I guess sending warm letters and speaking kindly on the phone don't get you as far as telling a school to go bite themselves.  Yellow.... Cheers man,congrats!
