    white males who had lower than 3.7 averages at schools such as columbia had less than a 4% chance of getting into Harvard law. Obama had under a 3.3. Being black counted for (on the 800 LSAT test) 130 points and a .5 GPA increase meaning a black with a 660 and a 3.3 GPA was treated the same as a white with a 790 out of 800 and a 3.8 GPA

    I like to think I'm fairly intelligent (30 on the ACT, will soon have my Bachelor's and then a Master's down the road), but I don't have the drive or capability that he does.
    he did not graduate Summa from Harvard but Magna which at the time meant he was one of the top 80 or so students out of 550. He didn't even make basic honors at columbia meaning his GPA was lower than a 3.3

    And he was a professor... He taught several standard law courses. His title was "lecturer" instead of "professor" because he wasn't tenure track. You don't sign up for tenure track unless you plan on teaching for the rest of your career. But he was definitely a full fledged professor. Full time, had his own classes like con law, etc.
    why do far lefties try to paint conservatives as racists for telling the truth? The fact is a white male with Obama's academic record would never have been accepted into Harvard Law School and a white male with Obama's credentials would not have been elected president after an adoring press greased his path to the white house

    So you're saying that he is smart but you disagree with his politics. That's fine.
    great-I had a 782/800 on the LSAT. that was in the top one percent. where does that put my IQ? My college roommate had double 800's on the SATs. He had 800's on 3 different achievement tests. He did 2K worth of Coke a month and left under academic suspension.

    Seriously, that's all you got? Insult him because of the color of his skin? Even if a black guy is a professor at a top 5 law school, in your eyes he's still just a stupid nigger? Go **** yourself.

    Wow! That IS impressive given that the scale only goes up to 180!

    Source? That's not my intelligence meter going off, it's the bull**** meter.

    Well, not according to the two classifications of IQ which are used. Let me edumacate you:


    The Terman's Stanford-Binet classification of genius range is 164 and over. The Wechsler classification has no genius classification, and simply identifies Very Superior at 130 and greater. So 141 to your earlier statement, is NOT genius level, it's in fact the same category as I am in; the range is "Superior Intelligence" at 132-148.

    IQ reference chart - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


    I'm very happy for his manga cum laude... but to Harry's earlier point, I too have known very academically smart dumb asses. Since I work in a portion of a company which hires Masters degree or higher educated personnel, I can attest to Harry's view and confirm it.

    I think what I exactly said was:

He'd make a good lawyer, a good CEO maybe, certainly someone in the private sector who would excel at his profession.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    so you deny that the top law schools engage in affirmative action in favor of blacks both for student acceptances and teaching positions?

    Your moronic and dishonest attempts to try to imply racism is disgusting.

    are you so ignorant as to not realize that the LSAT was on an 800 scale for decades? when I took the LSAT in 1980 it was on that scale. Just like the Verbal and math SAT
