What about Joe Biden?

Is anyone on this thread on 1+ waitlists & willing to drop their current school if they get off any of their WL? I'm currently going to Chapman but if Loyola or USD calls my name, I'll go there in a heartbeat. Anyone else in a similar position?

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.

Agreed. I do think that the radio stations are partly to blame. However, many rappers (and musicians in general) tend to make music that will make them the most $$$. They make the desicion to make the music that will get the most air play and therefore the most money. Radio stations control what's being played on the radio so they are partly to blame but musicians shouldn't always be chasing the money.

Wait List / Re: San Diego WL

Still waiting on PT.....

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?

Thanks! :)

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"?

I haven't emailed them directly but some people on this board have & some of my preferred schools said they would take the highest score according to the ABA's new suggestion. Of course, I would email the schools directly to find out for sure before making such a serious decision. At this time I am just contemplating re-applying & wondering if anyone else is in the same boat.

San Diego basically told me that they're undecided on the issue. 



That sucks. How unhelpful.

I have 2 LSAT scores that most law schools which I applied to averaged into one pretty average LSAT score. However, due to the ABA's "suggestion" that law schools take the highest LSAT score (& the fact that many law schools appear willing to do so), I am now seriously considering waiting a year & re-applying. I think that I'd have a much better chance of getting into a Southern CA tier 2 of my choice if those schools took my highest LSAT score.

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.

What did San Diego say?

Wait List / Re: Waitlist & Housing

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

If you signed a lease, my experience is that most places make you find someone to replace you. If you can't find someone to replace you, then you have to pay the rent until you do.
