That is a good point.

If race is not brought up in any other portion of the application, personal statement or otherwise... couldn't it be said that the applicant just make a single computer error which shouldn't be equated to dishonesty?

I'm one of the few posters old enough to remember it, haha. I thought it was stupid, but have seen it a few times because of my childhood crush on RDC :oops:

Never said it was the only thing I found offensive on TLS. But, yes, gifs that show men brutally knocking women out qualify pretty high on my offensiveness meter. They're certainly more offensive than OP's thinly veiled anti-AA screed.

After nickbentley's most recent post, I'm going to go ahead and register a provisional IBTL.

It's a form you need to send in to make sure you're still noticed after new additions are no longer accepted.

I'd imagine the RC section on LSAT is something you struggle with.

How would you have comprehended anything I've said to be anti-AA?

That is ridiculous.

It means that I expect this thread to get locked if the conversation continues on methods of cheating into better schools, but I may change my mind if the thread swerves into a constructive conversation like which moisturizing body wash will help me with my dry skin.

Dres, you must be a total LSAT failure and shouldn't attempt to match wits with this one.

Aveeno. The oatmeal is great for skin...


But in all honesty this isn't a discussion for cheating into better schools. It is a discussion of how somebody could remove unfair barriers to entry.

Don't be sad, we're the privileged ones on TLS. Growing up in the 80's was the shit.

I imagine you can click on my profile and figure out how LSAT went over for me.

Those that ask questions along the lines of 'zOMG, guyz, how would THEY ever found out if I pretended I was black?!' have historically proven to be anti-AA trolls.

If you're not a troll, you're pretty ridiculous. Actually, you're pretty ridiculous either way. Note that this makes the fact that you've actually refered to someone/something else as ridiculous particularly humorous (and not in a good way for you).

Am I wrong?

Why else would someone indicate AA next to their stats?

I'm saying race plays a roll in admissions decisions, or it would not be brought up.

This is not racism.
