Don't need to look at it negatively. People ask URMs what they think chances on getting in, how they like the school, how the classes are, etc. Why not how studying worked for them? Is that a bad thing??
are you even an URM? how is it akward?
But I mean, it's a bit different. URM-specific questions about admissions make sense because URMs are treated in a distinct way in law school admissions. How they like the school/classes still makes a bit more sense than the question you asked, I think, because there are URM-specific issues there too. Asking how URMs how they study specifically just doesn't make a whole lot of sense to me, and apparently a few other people here, since they are being tested on the same material and graded on the same scale as everybody else.
I agree with that last statement. But again, I just want to hear from people like me on law school in general including study habits. I am not trying to prove anything against URMs or compare them to non URMs. This is just about study habits and advice. That's all. If you think it's akward fine. When I went for a campus visit I asked two URMs a ton of questions including study habits and niether got offensive about it. Small sample size but this is getting out of hand. I have repeatedly said that I am not trying to start drama with this thread I am coming from a good place. If you still feel akward about it then so be it.
