NAME OF REACH SCHOOL- UVA
Optional Essay: DS, Why UVA
I think my statements and continued interest throughout the cycle helped a lot. I visited the school, sat in on a class, emailed the teacher of the class and let her know that I really enjoyed her teaching method, and thanking her for letting me observe. I had an awesome talk with Mr. Faulk during my visit, which I think went a long way. I had really strong softs for coming straight out of UG. Many will say I only got in because I'm an URM, but honestly, although being an URM helped a lot, I think the work I put into my application helped a great deal as well.
GL to all still waiting.
I am not on the URM hatorade. This is amazing -- and you earned that admissions! Congrats!
Pft. Earned? We all know what got him in.
STFU. UVA is #10. You think he got in with a 156/3.65 just because he was a URM? You know how many URMs apply to UVA with better numbers and don't get in?
So stop talking shit and bringing other people down when you don't know what the fuck you're talking about.
Umm, No. I, and everyone else, know exactly what got him in. Hundreds of people with far better scores and GPA's got passed over and he got in. Why do you have to pretend like you can't say the reason a 156 got in and someone with 10 more points on the lsat didn't? You're going to law school? Someone in preschool can identify the reason. The fact that you get so hostile at the hint of reality just validates what I'm saying. I'd like to know what excruciating life experience in inherited exclusively to blacks/latinos/native americans that can't be found in any other minority group. If you think that there is AA in the courtroom, you're wrong. At what point do you suggest letting people be judged equally by the quality of their merits and not by their skin?
