I love gangsta rap from the 90s. Tupac did rap about money, cars and women but I think his music also had a lot of important messages about racism & the struggle(s) of black people in america. Changes was an amazing song as was Brenda had a baby. Other than Kanye West, I find all rap music that is played on the radio to be the same & boring. I'm sick of hearing rap consist of the same subject matter over & over again. The most creative rappers today (in my opinion) would have to be Nas, Jay-z, Eminem, Jay-z,& Common. All the rest are rapping about rims, women & money - that's all old news. Be creative.
This proves that it is not the artist but the radio. Most of Tupacís conscious songs did not receive radio play until after his death or after he went to jail. He had to create a troubled ego and continuously contradict himself in order for the radio to find it worthy of any rotation. However "I get around" was in heavy rotation. Many rappers today are diverse however, only certain songs on their albums actually get radio play.
What do you guys think about re-applying next year solely because of the new policy? Good idea/bad idea? Is it something that those of you with multiple LSAT scores would consider doing? Why or why not?
That's kind of a big risk isn't it? Have any of your preferred schools already said that they were going to follow the ABA "suggestion"?
San Diego basically told me that they're undecided on the issue.
I know everyone here is pretty much only concerned with t14 schools, but I have e-mails from SMU, San Diego, Santa Clara, Pepperdine, Davis, and Houston, so anyone who needs "proof" can holler at me.
I would also like to elaborate on the UCLA situation, since there seems to be some confusion about their new policy. The lady told me that they will continue to average scores, but if the applicant has a 10+ point jump, then they can submit a letter explaining why they improved and why the higher score should count.
I actually signed a lease. But it seems unreasonable to pay for the entire year when I don't even stay there for one night
