I find it funny that some law school in Oklahoma City is spamming me with all kinds of GLBT information about their school. Bizarre. Only like two other schools have sent me pro-GLBT stuff and I can't even remember which ones, I don't think they were any of the schools I applied to.

Me too.  I wrote a slightly obnoxious post about it yesterday on the mail call thread and then I started feeling really bad about my coastal chauvinism.  Still, I half-wondered if Dean Tamara Martinez-Anderson might just be looking for semi-interesting queers to talk to through this world wide weave...

The only other LGBT stuff I got was from Columbia and Penn.  Ah, false hope!
That's cool how you referenced a case.

The best was when I got stuff from Regent. Now it wasn't any gay stuff, but still, didn't they notice I checked GLBT on my LDSAS? I'm pretty sure Regent isn't too gay friendly.

Hey, let's write an e-mail to Liberty University asking to speak to members of their LGBT organization!

i found it interesting that in that long list of sins, etc. homosexuality was never mentioned explicitly... i'm sure it falls under "immorality" tho...or "horseplay", possibly :)

haha did anyone go to their chat thing?  i thought about it, just bc i am curious... have gotten tons of glbt emails from them.  makes me wonder what they're going for.

i got some diversity-call email from HLS a few months ago, so i threw in an app just for the hell of it.  but i think harvard is swarming with dykes so i'm not really sure why they feel they've got to recruit more.  but i figured, hell why not.

i'd stay away from regent. 

do any of y'all have any thoughts at all about USD, though?  ??? catholic and conservative, sure... but they do have a pride law...

don't know how the school is, but san diego, while very conservative politically, is very socially tolerant. have been out and about there for nearly 14 years, and can say that while it is no los angeles (thank god) or san fran (too bad) it certainly has a thriving life...

I did.  And they all (top tier) accepted me AND offered me money.  Yes, even Fordham, that bastion of Jesuit goodness.  And though I don't want to do public interest, they even offered me public interest scholarships.  The whole profession is looking to diversify.  I plan to play this card for the partner track, too.

The key is to do it in a thoughtful way.  Stating that life discriminated against you will not do the trick.  Saying that witnessing your uncle - friend/mentor/teacher - die of AIDS changed your (gay) life, will.

If you really want to stand out, don't behave like a knee-jerk, liberal homo, either.  Throw some right-leaning bones into the essay so they know you actually have a brain.
