I hope steve.jd and CS4L hang out at Harvard. The combined gravitic pull of their prestige-egos will put (everyone) into orbit. After a short time, they will all collapse upon each other creating the first man made black hole...
ok, here is the scenario.a white male fills out a law school application, only they mark the gender box "female" and the race box "black" or "hispanic" or "not white, etc" or they keep "male" and simply claim another race. the admissions accept this person, and base it on his (her) 2 major qualifying statistics.let's look both ways- scores could be high, but then again not- ive seen a black girl get into washington and lee with a 148 LSAT and a 3.9 gpa. then, my friend who is white male, was rejected with a 168 LSAT and a 3.4 GPA. this is all variable of course, but what would happen if someone lied about their race or color or both to get a hand up?
If you cannot come up with a legitimate reason for such self-identification, you will refused membership to the bar, and your JD will be worthless.
Take a f-ing English class.
I would imagine they would get their acceptance revoked/kicked out for lying on their application. Interesting question though...I feel like it shouldn't bother me but it really does when people with significantly lower numbers get into the same schools I got rejected from because of URM status. Would be nice if those boxes did not even exist.
