That being said, and this is in general, I hate when people on TLS say "URM" when they should really be saying "minority."

URM differentiates hispanics, blacks, etc. from asians, indians and other "ORMs"


I understand that. They are times when the word URM is appropriate - which is almost exclusively in the context of admissions. Outside of that, people on TLS use the word URM often when it doesn't make sense to differentiate between URMs and ORMs.

because asians would never have to ask others how to study.

In short, give it a rest.


I'm not offended, I just like to point out stupidity. People bump things on here that they disagree with all the time. Welcome to internet forums, it's how they work.
You are by far one of the biggest jerks on this board. Literally about eighty percent of your posts are this snarky and mean spirited. The definition of the type of law school person people are al'ways talking about. The poster before you nailed it on the head and you still continue. Everything you post is smarmy and sarcastic asbif everyone else on here sits around and reads every guide on here and nhadbit bookmarked with lives that revolve around the net. You define the typical TLS poster. You need to fall back and cut it out...you're like this is every thread..I see it all the time. You have an inflated sense of yourself....just repeatedly telling someone what they said is stupid repeatedly when those words aren't necessary.

I noticed that whenever I asked someone who was not a minority, especially at school or at the workplace, I would get a really general answer as if to brush me off. And then I would hear them give detailed info to their own or even go as far as to give them specific written out instructions and walk them through whatever they were asking help in.


I like subtly injected racism in your post.


TBF, I have noticed that, on this website at least, URMs (except for the occasional racist who wants to "take down the white patriarchal system") tend to be a bit more congenial (read:less snarky) than the average (non-minority) poster. But then again, I think that might just be because the average white poster is probably upper-middle class and thus may be slightly snobbish with a sense of entitlement (I know that's stereotyping, but what you gonna do), and the average white poster who grew up poor may feel that he/she is being discriminated against--i.e. feels that she should be given the URM boost over, say, an affluent black student.

At any rate, I can't imagine that URMs need special studying tips that differ from non-URMs, so OP, I'd advise you to just look for general studying advice.

I haven't bothered doing much reading through this, so I don't know what "people like you are." However, as a homosexual, I find that if I use a full rainbow of highlighter colors in my casebooks that I recall the information better.


Seriously, why does this thread exist.

This thread is so full of win. I'm going to ask for study tips in my own thread from fellow Jews just because I'd enjoy the ensuing shit storm.

Does a Neanderthal count as a URM? Maybe I could help?

Now this is a very legitimate question seeing as how Jews, unlike URMs, are only part human.
