Whatever the opposite of perfect sense is, that's what you make. Have you ever stopped to consider that your approach is, really, unbelievably off-putting, and you have never, ever, convinced a single person on this board of anything, ever, even when you are technically advocating for the right position, because of it?

And here I thought I had the monopoly on alienating people from normatively-good positions. Outdone, yet again.
This sig kills fascists.

Saw dashrashi's LSN site. Since she seems to use profanity, one could say that HYP does not necessarily mean class or refinement.

The main partner in their Entertainment Law group went to CLS, but he was Fiske and on LR, so be careful.  You don't want to set yourself goals that are too high.

That's cool how you referenced a case.

My Grandfather and Grandmother were both slaves who were on their way to be murdered. My other grandmother had to flee from her home country with no money in her pocket so she wouldn't get massacred.

My family had nothing when they came here. Yet, I'm grouped together with white males and am disadvantaged further.

Race has nothing to do with opportunities in life. MONEY DOES. That's the bottom line.

was your family white?

If you seriously plan on practicing law you can't afford to be this naive. 

Google "Jim Crow", "apartheid" and "Baldus Study" and then come back to discuss once you've educated yourself.
"A lawyer's either a social engineer or a parasite on society. A social engineer is a highly skilled...lawyer who understands the Constitution of the U.S. and knows how to explore its uses in the solving of problems of local communities and in bettering [our] conditions."

Wait so let me get this straight. Minorities are accepted with much lower numbers because they are entitled primarily for reasons of past injustices their grandparents suffered that may have affected their progress in pursuing higher education?
