Not to hijack your thread, but what don't you like about LA?

The smog, the car culture, the pollution, the flakey people, the horrible architecture. This place is an ecological disaster. No one cares about the aethetics of the city at all, it's just build the cheapest piece of sh*t stucco box McMansion or apartment building as quickly as possible. It's overdeveloped and there's no green space. No public transit. I hate having to drive for 45 minutes across town to see a baseball game. It's terribly designed. Easily my least favorite city in America.

It's a free speech issue and I'm all for community radio but I wouldn't put it on your resume. You were, after all, breaking the law.

I think race-based affirmative action policies are generally a pretty bad idea but I think socio-economic status-based affirmative action is a very good idea.

I don't see why a middle class black kid from the suburbs should be given an advantage over a poor white kid from a depressed region like Appalachia, all other things being roughly equal.

What's your reason for saying avoid hastings?

It's a dump?

Arizona is ranked far higher than LUC.

Do what you want. It's your education, not your dad's.

How are you 20 years old and going to law school?

Who knows. Might as well read tea leaves.

Yeah, just a quick two sentence note should be fine.

Dear Ms. Smith,

I am withdrawing my application to State University Law School. Thank you for offering me admission, however, I have decided to attend another law school.
