I'm just wondering - *why* is ambulance chasing unethical?  As in, showing up at an accident, and giving the injured party your card (as a lawyer).

Does that apply to any situation, where you see someone who you think could use legal services?

denk, out of curiosity, what do you want to study?

i, personally, think it tacky to chase disaster for business. i don't know about most people, but it's right up there with giving the widow a funeral services card right after her hubby has died in my book.

BUT you know, there's a time and place for everything. some have the ability to put all humanity aside for one second for a buck. and, IF it serves that person and the people they help (ultimately) then i say why the hell not.

Minority Topics / Re: Jews: Why are we not a URM?
« on: June 03, 2006, 02:19:39 AM »
There are less Jews at Virginia Tech than any other minority.  As such, we get stereotyped horribly here.  Accordingly, I do not understand why Jews are not afforded minority status for law school applications, especially since we go through many (not all since we can pass for white in some uncomfortable situations) of the same things that other minorities go through.  Why are eskimos considered to be a minority for law school admissions purposes, but not Jews?  I guarantee that Jews go through more bull than eskimos (what is the PC term for eskimos anyway?). 

i'll quote myself...i'll use the same post i used for the asian urm question...

"can you handle the truth? i think others have been helpful in touching the surface about this here though..."

i was looking at some statistics, and i was wondering why the asian race is not considered an under-represented minority.

they make up only about 2% of the law profession, while making up 3.6% of the total population. while they are not as "under-represented" as a whole than other minorities, namely hispanics who make up 12.5% of the total population but have only 3.9% in law, they are still under represented as a percentage of the total population.

so what gives?

*these statistics are from the 2000 census, fyi.

can you handle the truth?

i think others have been helpful in touching the surface on this topic though...

The entire purpose of picking out a law school being future job prospects, rankings minutiae are largely irrelevant. On the other hand, Joe Schmoe isn't a law firm, he's Joe Schmoe because he doesn't know anything about law schools.
