You're right, I do have special needs...A tanning bed.  Please be serious, and address my question.

I am serious.  You're retarded or something.   Probably a savant since you did well on the lsat.   I doubt you have the ability to interact effectively in a human social environment.  I say you should try it it, and if they don't accept you try to tie in a  limited intellect thing. It suits you. 8)

So basically you're telling me that when I get into UVA, having checked the URM box, my tan will make me a social outcast?  Do you and I need a spa day?

This is a serious question, so no scoffers, please.  Although not a minority, I get an awesome tan.  It has been pointed out to me that I could pass as Mexican pretty easily.  I got a 168 on June's LSAT, but was thinking about retaking.  Why though?  AA is all about skin color, it isn't about the education you received, nor is it about where you grew up.  As a person with great tanning ability shouldn't I be able to take unfair advantage too? 
Yes, but I don't think there is a Law School for individuals with special needs.    ::)

 :D :D :D classic.

Here is that article. I have no idea why it didn't post earlier:

Again, not trying to flame anyone here. I just thought this would add to the healthy debate.
