the good news, at least for those over the other T20 medians, will be that Dean Chem & Co. will shower you with all kindsa perqs -- incluing money -- this cycle.

(Sorry, but not you Dr. Negative. :))

Why do you think this? Just curious. I'm looking into UCI.

visited last year and Dean Chem said as much; something to the effect, 'we're planning something special for next year's class...'

But when you think about it, it make $$ sense. Better to spend a bunch of money now to score an initial T20 ranking (if possible), than to spend the $$ over the next decade trying to increase from TTT to T20.

Actually, NONE of the law school faculty were in support of the girl.


The Duke faculty that were, were faculty from the Gender studies classes, black history, and the rest of the shitlib departments.


Wow... And some people say that TLS is elitist and WASPy.

In any case, everyone knows that any academic focus on the history of transgressions against minorities is just "shit liberalism" anyway, right?

Of course those knee-jerk libtards would come down on the side of the girl. Those poor, white Duke Lacrosse players never should have been Trayvoned like that.

Or do I have you wrong?

I have been here for like two years as either a lurker or a poster and I have never seen someone describe TLS as WASPy.

Although I found it interesting that it was brought up against one of the 5% non WASP posters. lol

What do you want to bet that's not true? Did you read his original comment?

I have seen Dre PW. He just REALLY hates UCI. Noone knows exactly why... he just does.


I think maybe his ex-gf, who was the love of his life, attended there. Yeah. That could possibly be the reason.

everything you UC Irvine enthusiasts


Not sure that I resemble that accusation.

First and foremost, I'm against ANY new law schools being built/opened. California in particular, has no need for another law school --UC or otherwise. So in this sense, I do not support the school -- no "enthusiasm" whatsoever. OTOH, UC and the fools running Sacto approved of UCI Law (despite my negative enthusiasm).

Since that time, I think Dean Chem and his team are during an excellent job (growing what should have never been built). Even if he doesn't make T20, I'm guessing that UCI easily becomes the fifth-ranked LS in this (TTT) state, which includes besting Hastings and Davis.

Besting Hastings is not impressive at all.

Their placement is TTTT

UCLA and USC should combine forces to create a t14 in southern California. It could be called the Southern California Law Center, and take fewer students with better numbers. That's way better than having so many T1 schools in the region.

It was not MY idea; instead, it was the taxpayer's idea, or at least through their representatives.

Write your State Assembly person or State Senator. Bro'.

Evidence in favor of "W": He uses the term "bro"; he just White Knighted for a gang of douchey, white ivy league jocks (who everyone agreed probably would have been guilty any other day); he specifically referred to Black Studies as a "shitlib department"; and his username is Dr. Dre.

Additionally, everyone on his "pencils" thread thought he was serious. He's a troll of the highest order.

It would be nice if the mods would do their job and keep him off UCI pages. Don't care if you like the school or not, just bring something productive.

My mistake. In all fairness though, I think Dre needs to move on from the UCI applicants page. It's a little pathetic.

Those Duke lax players were obviously fucked with by an overzealous prosecutor who ended up losing his job and being disbarred. Is this a fucking joke?

edit- did you even read the wiki article?
On April 11, 2007, North Carolina Attorney General Roy Cooper dropped all charges and declared the three players innocent. Cooper stated that the charged players – Reade Seligmann, Collin Finnerty, and David Evans – were victims of a "tragic rush to accuse."[9] The initial prosecutor for the case, Durham County's District Attorney Mike Nifong, who was labeled a "rogue prosecutor" by Cooper, withdrew from the case in January 2007 after the North Carolina State Bar filed ethics charges against him. That June, Nifong was disbarred for "dishonesty, fraud, deceit and misrepresentation", making Nifong the first prosecutor in North Carolina history to lose his law license based on actions in a case. Nifong was found guilty of criminal contempt and served one day in jail.[10] Mangum never faced any charges for her false accusations as Cooper declined to prosecute her.[11]
