Interesting digression in class today. We were in small groups taking about whether we, if we were residents of America in the late 18th century, should have voted to ratify the constitution. I pointed out that at least some members of the group didn't have the right to vote at all.
"Yeah," said one, "because I'm a woman, I couldn't vote at all."
A guy responded, "and half of me couldn't vote." The professor raised an eyebrow and asked "are you half woman?"
"No, I'm half Black."
"Though, I guess I'm half woman also."
I never thought of it that way, but he's right, isn't he?
In other news of the bizarre, the unnamed law school which admitted me on January 1st, sent me a nice email today, January 16th, informing me that they've received my application and I should expect a decision by April. I'm on the edge of my seat.
Also, neighboring law school of already-admitted U asked to see my fall term grades. This isn't an unreasonable request, except that they already have my fall term grades. I didn't submit my application until my fall term grades were available. If they have any grades at all, said grades include my fall term grades. I sent them a polite-but-puzzled email to that effect, and am waiting for a response.
