Because this wasn't a legitimate conversation, you (tried to) isolate and target urMom to make her feel bad about her well earned acceptance to NYU. That makes you at tool. The only reason it didn't work is because urMom is awesome enough to know not to pay attention to you, and other people stood up to support her. You, on the other hand, are alone and pathetic. You won't do  well at ANY law school with that attitude because there's so much you just don't understand.

Why are you all talking about each others mothers..how rude!!

So the moral of this story is...

The UCLA waitlist board turned into race debates...I told you everything goes back to race

no-body expects the Spanish inquisition

I also don't understand why legitimate discussions concerning Affirmative Action are automatically dismissed as flames or as being silly.

Questioning someone's worth as a person is probably not the best way to start.

You're correct.  That was in bad taste.  I apologize.

urMom, is your acceptance to NYU sufficient remuneration for the hardships you and your family have felt, particularly at your Ivy League University?

I hope she doesn't choose to ignore those who challenge her beliefs when she is an attorney.  She will have a short career.

Also, how can you speak for how urMom earned her acceptance?  Do you know her?  Did the NYU adcomm board send you information on how they made their decision?  My theory was based upon her other decisions, what is yours based upon?

Wonderful assumptions about me.  Spot on.

One other thing.  Why does everyone assume someone who opposes AA is white?  Is it impossible for minorities to dislike it?

After catching up with this thread this morning...TFM, I think you're kind of disgusting and I hope we don't end up at the same law school.  Shoot for a 155!

Why am I disgusting?

If I get a 155 I'd have a decent chance at some of the schools you might end up at.  Never underestimate that URM boost.

Like many have said, TFM, this is a thread about the UCLA waitlist. Start a new thread if you want to consistently talk about something else.

I think we have a valuable discourse here.

I do admire the audacity of you LSDers, shamelessly jumping to the defense of someone you've never met.
