Not blaming their subpar gpa's but clearly letting them know that they had 60 hours a week dedicated to athletics.  While the other candidate focused on school only. ...Funny why my G.P.A was a lot higher every spring than it was every fall.I don't think you realize how much dedication they require... 

p.s The season is in the fall....

Of course I realize it...I do have friends who played football, basketball, and all of that.

Regardless of spending 60 hours a week, that is still not a good enough addendum bc like blk said, there ARE minorities who were  D1 athletes and still managed to do their work and get good grades.

yup


the main point was that no law school applicant should blame their subpar gpa on sports.

Just watching this for entertainment value but I would assume that they don't plan on telling you their undergraduate institutions because of sites like xoxo and for general privacy reasons. There are so few black people in law school especially Ivy Leagues like Jem that it would make it easier for someone to figure out their identity and target them later

You don't have to tell me..I was just curious to what schools you attended.  So I could relate with my Division1a program.  3 bowl games and a top 25 finish...
