After a week long hiatus, I'm on for no more than two minutes before I see a post which begs a response.
Alcibiades. Like I told you in another note: Don't let your Yale admission go to your head. There are dozens of applicants, who had better LSATs, better GPAs and possibly more potential than you, who did not get into Yale. Its OK to be proud of your admission, to a point, but you shouldn't rub it in other people's faces. Its a great opportunity, but its not a meaningful accomplishment.
I'll leave you with a thought, which should scare you straight:
Lots of Yale Law Grads don't achieve in the real world. Such people are pathetic and deservingly ridiculed. Its a terrible thing. Only one thing is worst. A URM
Yale Law grad who doesn't achieve. The prior was a disgraceful loser who squandered a golden opportunity. The latter was much worst. The latter was someone who validated every racist in the country. The latter could be you
if you're not careful.
Pride before the fall my friend.
P.S. Note Pookie's modest and classy characterization of her Yale admit "how the hell did i pull this one off?"
