Go for it if you think that's best. A close friend of mine went back at it, jumped 8 points and is killing this cycle.

The video I just watched had the minority law students voicing their displeasure at being the only minority in the classroom and the pressure of people taking them as the only voice for their race and all of that.....but should any of that particularly surprising? I've been dealing with being the only black kid in my classes since middle school and I expect it to be even worse in law school.

Yes the schools administration and handling of the situation is awful, and the backlash from the student population is ridiculous. But the original problem seems to be something that's faced by all black students regardless of location or education level. Am I missing something here?

ETA: I guess I'm asking I'm we are shocked and outrage or just outraged


You are right. I have been the only black person in a class many times as well. I think the video is mostly addressing an atmosphere, at UCLA, that is poisoned, if not hostile. Richard Sander’s research creates this, as does a sense of entitlement amongst many that “numbers” alone denote worthiness. Sander’s research is self-serving and full of personal agenda and the sense of entitlement is created by a school chasing USNWR blessings. What the entitled don’t get is that 1. Most URM’s are most likely competing for admission with other URM’s. I come to that conclusion based on the minimal level URM’s at most of, what are considered, the top law schools. And 2. Holistic admissions are spoken about and obviously used in certain cases.

What schools do not understand in their hunt for numbers is that a net focused mainly on catching numbers to appease a magazine or others can be full of holes in the net when it comes to catching character and integrity.

+1 on the retake advice.

But I also hope you stay on that waitlist and ride it out to an acceptance.

I'm in the same boat. I have one of UCLA/Vandy/Texas and USC so far as my only T-20s. That being said, I shouldn't and cannot complain about my my cycle all together. I decided that if I still haven't broken into the T-14 (and with at least some money) by April 1st, I'm just going to study quickly for two months, put a seat deposit down for the school I've already been accepted to and re-take in June. I mean, I'm completely fine with going to one of the schools I've been accepted to and I have one last re-take to burn anyway, so why not? Why did you only apply to four T-14s?


I'm actually still waiting on Colombia, Berkeley, Northwestern, and Georgetown. The others over been WL, held or dinged.

I'm in at a couple T20s as well. I think that if this trend continues I'm committing to UCI and retaking in June.
