Meh, everyone has their own interpretation of school. However law school is uniquely different in the fact that it's so highly competitive. I socialized with my YT counterparts, but it only goes so far. Sure they invited me to [some of] their social events, I went, and it was just like class. When I invited them to mine, they rarely came, and when they did, they stayed huddled up on one side of the room like a prison yard.
Nare once did I get invited to a study group though. I peeped they would have outlines or answers they got and shared amongst themselves but refrained from sharing with those outside their groups. I recall sharing info I'd found only to have them suck it up with no reciprocation. After that, I went hard by myself, silently got my A&B's and didn't say sh*t beyond hi/bye.

Always--- had a chair near the door and made a friend or two just for notes etc.

I loved going to office hours to make them feel good about having an AA in the classroom. LOL... (This was so helpful--- thank you, and I was out)

It’s hard to get into a good grad school in Cali… trust...
So I played the game… I don’t need to make friends with everyone in my class. It was all about the money and the end game for me.



I didn't understand that.... how going to office hours made them feel "good" about having you around?

not white and I was only a TA

but teachers (that want to be helpful) like when you come by their office and ask for help or show interest in their work

and for what I know about white people they love a "pet black" they can feel they helped in some sort of way

Yall signed up to go to a PWI, u knew the enrollment numbers beforehand.


So true, that was what I meant to say, that you are not a representation of your community, just like the black prison inmate is not a representation of your race. We don't have to prove anything to anyone. If the person has a negative view of your race, nothing you'll do will make them see it different. They will think it was some white peer who invited you to their study group, or a white mentor who showed you how to ace it a test.

When they were complaining about how hard it is to not see another black around, I thought "go to a black college then!" or learn to befriend them. You may find some who will welcome you as their "friend", but you need to watch it to see if the person really wants to be your friend or just wants to be able to say they got a black friend.

I read a similar review of their white classmates from this black guy from LA who is currently studying in Berkeley... he and the other blacks didn't feel welcome and he said he was never invited to the study groups set up by whites.

Gotcha. So you faked helplessness mommykat/Samone? Did that help you in any way? Or was it so they would be warmer towards you?

no I never faked helplessness lol

I went to a HBCU for undergrad and thankfully the professors cared about me from jump

one even posted an achievement of mine in a local newspaper just because

I only spoke with professors in undergrad and grad school (white, black or other) if I needed help

I was actually pretty stupid by doing that, I should have spoke to all of my professors no matter what and if faking like I needed a little more explanation was needed to get into their office, I should have done that

mishairdo you are so smart!

I was wondering why students I knew that were not studying and cheating (poorly at that) were getting As while I was busting my ass for my A or B+

they were in the professor's office all up in their ear

and call it wrong but I would pad the struggling students' grade by a few points if I knew they were trying (e.g., asking for help during class, coming by after class)

not a lot of points though
