So a black child adopted and raised by white parents should consider himself white? No way, your culture has nothing to do with your race, race is a biological distinction. Its stupid that schools give AA preference to certain races but thats the way it is and checking hispanic on a form when your race is white is an outright lie. Checking other would be fine as other can mean anything. Who you were raised by, economic factors, what country you came from, etc. are things for the PS/addendum not the biographical information box.
BAHAHAHA TAG THIS THREAD IS IT!I'm sorry guys you have me DYING....of laughter. Ooh the Gestapo Adcoms are watching you! They are going to reject you. Give me break. I've said some really crude stuff on here. I'm not apologizing for it either. What happened to free speech people? It sounds to me like Big Tex made booboo regarding his URM status and that is why he freaked out. Other than that if you have nothing to hide, chill out. The only reason I took my picture down (way before this incident occurred) is b/c I was getting creepy stalkers. Oh yeah (Gives the finger to Boalt) LMAOI have a very difficult time believing that adcoms. who have thousands of applications to read, search the boards in order to match up profiles. I mean where would they even know to look? Lesson to everyone: Stop posting all your business.Oh yeah why did I get SEVEN PMS today from random folks apologizing? I donít care about you. I probably even forgot we had ďbeefĒ. Iím not going to call law schools on you so relax.
I wish X had contacted me directly with their concerns. If they had done so, all of this could have been avoided. I do not think it was right for X to contact various schools and raise questions about my honesty and integrity without involving me in some way in the process. I debated whether or not to make this post, and in the end I decided the following:X decided to use LSD/LSN to gather information on me and reached a false conclusion in doing so. As such, I feel it is appropriate for me to make this one last final post on the same board from whence they gathered their initial information.Iím really signing off this time. Thanks guys. Itís been a blast. Kick ass in 1L, and to school X Ė no hard feelings. Sometimes these misunderstandings happen. Iím all good with things now. I hope you are too.

RegularGuy is my new favorite person b/c he agrees with me (and had the balls to take a stand)I haven't quite taken my stand yet, but I am being *very* serious when I say that I'm giving serious consideration to making a very open post that makes it quite clear who I 'am' in addition to where I've been admitted and where I hope to go. If they want to deny, yield protect or waitlist based on that stuff, the so be it.

you don't know that he got preferential treatment, first of all. secondly, he did disclose the nature of his background to all other schools, including harvard. thirdly, he's not as white as you, assuming you grew up in a white family. his old LSN profile said that he clearly explained his situation in an addendum and let schools decide how to handle it, and he did just that (assuming that he's telling the truth, which i am perfectly fine assuming).
