But, independent of that, I think we should all recognize as true the more controversial point that any attribute that prevents a person from doing a required task is a problem if we need that person to do the required task. I think the only way to argue that some attribute of a person that prevents that person from doing a required task should not be considered in whether to hire the person to do the task is to say that there is some very compelling reason to accept the person's inability to do the task because, in doing so, we achieve some greater good (or prevent a wrong). Such a wrong could be a discriminatory society (i.e., we should hire the pregnant woman even though she'll do a worse job because, by not discriminating, we create a better society). But, it's a weighing. Not being able to do work is not irrelevant--the drawback of hiring a pregnant woman to defuse a nuclear bomb would outweigh the benefit of preventing a discriminatory society.



Ok everyone shut up because I just got my KBB1



KBB1 = KB( + Baby)1?

The fact that I have now made 10 total posts on this website, to me, is a sign that I will never get a KBB2. My life is failing big time.

Maybe someone in the HLS admissions office can inform KB that the applicant from Nebraska that she interviewed today is not such a desirable pick after all. Or maybe someone from this board who wants your potential spot should direct the admissions office to this part of the thread.

I dno what's happened in here. Seems like a lot of derping.

Moving along...I'd like to take this time to say I'd really enjoy a JS1/KB1 or anything resembling a step toward an acceptance. Tyia.

Wow, that's awful news. It seems strange and surprising to me that you weren't at least waitlisted again this year, given that there are fewer applicants and your application has improved (if I remember correctly, you applied later last year and got your highest LSAT score on the December test).

Sorry to hear that, Nulli. Unfortunately we're not the ones making the decisions or reviewing applications here... I'm sure that there is much more going on in that office than we see, so even though it doesn't make sense to us, there has to be reason for the madness.

Wow everyone, thanks for all the support. The sad part is when my Outlook grabbed the e-mail my computer locked up and when I reseted it the e-mail was gone. So I only have a "Decision Rendered" in Status Checker and no e-mail to archive in the folder "Epic Fail".
