Please tell me which law schools that they have a clear advantage so that I will be sure to apply. In life, there are always advantages, so why is it that people try to make being a minority and getting a break, a problem!  There are legacy advantages, friends in high places advantages, etc., so this one is no different.

The person who started this thread needs to check history!  If there was one advantage for a minority for every disadvantage of the past, we would not live long enough to recieve them.  Don't bring up the past unless you are really willing to address the true issues.  Minorities in this country deserve every opportunity and Affirmative Action is designed to correct the mistakes of the past.  Allowing a minority an opportunity does not create a missed opportunity for a non-minority. But even if it did, then so be it!

sure, if minorities want to continue to use a crutch to get ahead because they cant on their own merit, sure! what about all other immigrant groups that have made it on their own, jews, italians, russians, germans, they were discriminated against and never had government reliance, so why do minorities have to? this is an equal opportunity country, why should minorities get an advantage?

you must have serious self-confidence issues.  why don't you focus on aceing the LSAT and getting into law school on your own merit instead?
