I think the punchline of the joke that is theflyingmachine is that he's talking all this trash, and he hasn't even taken the LSAT yet!  :D  :D  :D

It makes me LOL.

That's very true.  Him making fun of where you'll end up has to be bad karma for the test.

He doesn't believe in karma.  So he'll 180 it, I'm sure.

Why are the two of you assuming I'm a male?  Because I'm assertive, intelligent and well-spoken?  How sexist.

As I said, I have no issues with URMs who are AA admits numbers-wise but have other interesting factors.  If urMom had other interesting factors, she would have fared better at Michigan and UCLA.  Michigan particularly, since it's notorious for letting in interesting applicants even if they have iffy numbers.

I can't change the socio-economic system in any appreciable way.  So I complain.

Personally, I would feel that my accomplishments were being denigrated if I were admitted to a school based on the color of my skin.

I've got it!  TFM is Clarence Thomas' online persona.

Just got the waitlist letter. I'm a little disappointed.

sorry Mom...but NYU!!  come ON!!  cheer up!

Oh, I'm not feeling too down. I'm so relieved I got into NYU early, it really is making the rest of my cycle much less stressful.

*reads NYU acceptance letter again*

You were accepted at NYU but rejected at Michigan and waitlisted at UCLA?

Does the fact that it's a clear AA admit make you feel like less of a person?

Stop hatin'.

How's it feel to fail at life, fuckhead?

Go let your mommy make it feel better. Go cry to her about the big, bad, ugly, unfair world. Go have her buy you a nice little pony, a vacation in Cancun, or whatever it is spoiled little shits like you get when life because just oh so oppressive - that tit must taste good.

Feel free to resort to puerile insults and name-calling.  I'm certain this will get you far in the real world.

Dammit, why do I always come into these juicy conversations late??

Oh and for the record, Flyingmachine is spot on. That's what's  wrong with America. All these minorities taking up all the precious few spots at elite law schools. It's just a crisis.

If you would be so kind as to quote where I said that, it would be much appreciated.

Good.  It shouldn't bother you that more qualified white folk are out of luck because NYU needed to fill a quota.

Did I use the word "crisis" or the phrase "that's what's wrong with America"?  I don't see it.  Your reading comprehension skills are sorely lacking for a Yale student.  It's a good thing they don't give grades there.
