Ah yes. I am the one falling victim to groupthink of prominant conservative pundits and writers. I cannot think for myself. You are so right.I'm not the one afraid to spell out the fact that very real biases against these people exist in the real world and that flaunting it around in a personal statement isn't a good idea. The reason why this was asked was because the OP was concerned about talking about it as it raises suspicion and invites assumptions that the OP may or may not like raised. Everyone jumps on the bandwagon that writing about who you are and your sexual status is an important part of your personality and what you can bring to the law school. These ideas are all hippie idealistic BS. Legitimate corporations and law firms do not like gays infecting their ranks. Much of the game is about commanding respect from the legal establishment and the pubic itself. This aim is not well complimented by arming yourself with limp-wristed, lisp-speaking, social deviants!
What did you write your PS about? I can't imagine it being much better than the "coming out" topic, or else you would be headed somewhere better than Texas Tech or UNM. Or maybe you came off like such a pr*ck that those are the only schools that would take you? No offense to anyone who attends Tech or UNM...
But how are homosexuals deviants? Where is this assumption coming from?EDIT: Law school is not the professional world. It is academia.
