Additional info & updates

I love comments. Please leave comments!

I'll respond when I'm bored enough. Gives me something to write about.

URM - Underrepresented minorities are (1) racial and ethnic populations that are (2) underrepresented in the legal profession relative to their numbers in the general population. Asians are an ethnic population who consist of about 5% of the general U.S. population, yet we make up less than that (~2% according to 2000 census) among practicing U.S. attorneys.* We meet both these requirements. Hence, we are an underrepresented minority among practicing lawyers, and I selected the appropriate designation.

*The figures also generally hold true among applicant matriculation into law school.

Non-Traditional - These students are (1) older than the typical student population, and (2) have experienced interruptions in their studies. I'm older and I've had several interruptions throughout my curriculum. Therefore, I am a non-traditional student.

*URM - Though asians are underrepresented in the legal field and law schools in general, there are more asians in the top schools than is justified by their relative numbers in the general U.S. population.

I see why some argue that I'm not part of an underrepresented minority.

I wish you the best..

Bro, my advice is, wait it out. Your scores may hold up. If not you still have Texas Tech to fall back on.

Sunday, November 30 2008 at 07:00 PM

I hear ya on the Texas Tech situation. It's a tough dilemma...I'm in the same boat. Did they send the scholarship offer with your acceptance letter?

Tech
Saturday, June 07 2008 at 08:00 PM

Congrats on your Tech acceptance and schollie! Tech is my #1 choice and I'm still waiting to hear from them. Good luck with the rest of your apps!

Sunday, November 30 2008 at 07:00 PM

Yeah it is binding :/ I'll let you know if I decide to accept their offer. Good luck to you as well.

Tech
Saturday, June 07 2008 at 08:00 PM

Tech is my #1 choice because I already live in Lubbock and I own a home here, plus I have a daughter in school here. I really don't want to have to try to sell my house in this market, and my daughter doesn't want to move, but a substantial scholarship elsewhere would be very tempting. Baylor didn't offer me any money though.

Tech Question
Thursday, October 18 2007 at 08:00 PM

Hey did you see a box that says 'fees' before you applied to Tech and did it show up AFTER you were accepted? Mine says decision rendered and now I see a box on their online checker that says fees, wanted to know if I was reading too much into it.

Sunday, November 30 2008 at 07:00 PM

I'm going to pass on Texas Tech. They didn't offer me any money, and I still have many schools I would like to hear from. I just got accepted to Miami, which makes me wonder where else I will be accepted. I wish you the very best the next few years!

Classmates!?!
Saturday, June 07 2008 at 08:00 PM

I'm really glad you enjoyed your visit at Tech. I thought Dean Cook was so great... he made me feel welcome and comfortable, not nervous at all. I also got to meet Dean Huffman, who was really nice too. I thought he was leaving, though, so I don't know what the deal is with that. I think the Tech campus is beautiful, but I'm a little biased since I went to undergrad here. I've lived in Lubbock for 13 years now and I think it's a great place. I'm so glad you liked it! When do you have to turn in your seat deposit money?

one more thing
Saturday, June 07 2008 at 08:00 PM

Oh, and I'll change the amount of my schollie to $50K. You're right, it does sound better! :)

Baylor
Tuesday, February 03 2009 at 07:00 PM

Congrats on Texas Tech! Just curious, did you apply strictly for fall admission to Baylor?

hey
Wednesday, August 13 2008 at 08:00 PM

URM

hey
Wednesday, August 13 2008 at 08:00 PM

thanx for the comment.. and good luck at Texas!

Thursday, March 19 2009 at 08:00 PM

unfortunately, i've heard us described as ORM (overrepresented minority). stinks doesn't it? well congrats on Tech!!

Wednesday, August 27 2008 at 08:00 PM

Wreck Em Tech!

Monday, June 29 2009 at 08:00 PM

In response to Erin - I've always understood "nontraditional students" to include veterans, students with dependent children, and older than average students - not just those who took time off between ugrad. and prof. or grad. school...

Monday, June 29 2009 at 08:00 PM

...oh yeah, and first generation college students (i.e. neither parent has a four year degree)
