Speaks volumes.Agreed!I would hope if one were going to make a blanket statement and a broad generalization about a group of people, and that statement was going to contain blatant stupidity said statement could at least use proper grammar. The word you're looking for txn_20 is "their" not "there", and from this once could conclude that your poor grammatical performance is a result of your poor upbringing.But that would be a broad generalization and that would be wrong. I'll assume you'll try to make excuses to why you are not clear on use of the English language, and why people should cut you some slack, but clearly you are a product of poor upbringing and therefore are not worthy of any consideration of your circumstances.

whatever. I didn't get into Temple because I'm not black. The only white people who get into Temple score in the 160's....and even then it's difficult.let the flaming begin. bring it. because it's totally true.
Obviously it was hard seeing as you're going to Cooley whose LSAT acceptance score is 143 and GPA acceptance score 2.9. AA is a rather basic, easy way to get into a business. At the end of the day, you lose more respect than you gain with affirmative action. The sole reason why Obama immediately stated, "I did not use Affirmative Action...," he did not want anyone thinking he used AA. It is a rather disgusting thing to use to get into a job. The employer is racist? He is going to be racist/prejudice even if you do use AA and he will cause you more stress than you need, so go to a different business.
Do not act as though you had more schools accepting you. For example, if I applied for admission to a community college and admission to the top ranked college in the state and was accepted into both, I would choose the top ranked school. Why settle for a community college when a top ranked school would like to have you as well? Cooley is like a community college, all you need is a basic score of 143 (community college, high school diploma) to get in. If you got over a 160, you would not be going to Cooley. No one just chooses it because they like the alumni and programs, they choose it because they have no alternatives.
