I think I got that packet when I was applying before. Please tell me that's not the only mention of their BLSA. If that's just one of several things they highlight about BLSA, La Raza, etc. then I can't be too mad, but if that's the only mention then that's a problem.

Wait, did they highlight it as in, they highlighted it especially in the packet they sent you, or as in it was mentioned in the BLSA description.

Also, UM is the only t14 with lower AA enrollment lower than the Cal state schools.


Credited questions.

Mometta... That's about it unless they forgot to send me the other hundred plus reasons to go there. But the new glass room got a two page spread sooooo there's that. Also they threw in a paragraph about me being black and and mentioning BLSA in the letter that accompanied the book so it's not all 100% completely bad.

:roll: :roll: :roll:


My favorite is the blurb about the wrongful convictions clinic or some other ish like that, and it accompanies a full page pic of the grateful black man surrounded by his white saviors. This really sealed the deal for me.


Oh good lord. This is ridiculous. And to think, Michigan was already my least favorite of the t14...

but I can't deny that I sincerely hope social functions wherever I do end up include macaroni & cheese because that shit is delicious.

I mean, I look at it the same way that I look at fried chicken. Am I black? Yes. Do I like fried chicken? Yes. But so does every other non-vegetarian person that I've ever met.

No lol. It didn't bother me I just thought the way they worded their questions could have been a lot more politer especially since I've never held a conversation with them on TLS. Even if they didn't mean it to be offensive that's how they worded the question and as future lawyers they should know that diction is important.


Your too nice. they knew exactly what they were doing

Yea what's funny is that one person went through my post history and found a post with my LSAT score and then said that since it wasn't good enough I must have had some other factors to offset it or been a high demand URM. They asked me a bunch of rhetorical questions that they then answered later in the message.


Honey, better you than me ... my carribean temper don't hold for no nonsense like that.

I dont know why ppl just cant be happy for you. I am so happy for you, you inspired me to get back to my applications because I was kinda meh about it for the past 2 weeks.

my brother is going to chicago at basically sticker ($5K/year). but he had a weird cycle and got rejected and waitlisted from a ton of schools. it was between chicago, irvine, and wisconsin for him.


Seriously? did he blanket T14?


yep, all except NYU and northwestern, cause he wasn't interested in those two at all.
