I think I've taken as implicit all along that potential employers are going to...

This needs to be emphasized in every law school thread.

Ok, let me work with those: Mexican: The big thing is to decide whether you're looking for Tex-Mex (e.g. chile con queso, fajitas, enchiladas in red sauce with cheddar cheese) or actual Mexican (mole, tacos that don't use lettuce, cheddar and tomatos, soup/caldo). If it's Tex-Mex, there are a lot of local chains that do a pretty solid, albeit not amazing, version of Tex-Mex: Ninfa's, El Tiempo, Cyclone Anaya's, Molina's, Pappasito's... out of those I'd recommend the...
The Aquarium and the Kemah boardwalk are Landry's owned tourist traps; avoid like the plague. The thing to realize with the Houston dining scene is that the fancy/trendy places just aren't all that impressive or interesting, and that the real good food is to be found at the myriad hole in the wall ethnic and "cheap eats" places you'll find scattered about on the fringes of town. If you want to throw out more specific ideas of what you are looking for, I can point you...

It could help you get your feet wet, and considering you said you were null and void about finance knowledge trying anything might be a good option at this...

The point was that any actual problem with bias is mostly fictitious and overstated, and that the stylistic changes I mentioned don't really affect the question in any substantive way other than giving a warm and fuzzy feeling to the usual PC...
Quote: Originally Posted by RunningBeagle Yes, and the tests are racist Watching the writing style of the more recent tests and practice tests always cracks me up in seeing how the College Board is overcompensating in trying to be PC and pander across the board to avoid any potential far fetched accusations of racism. You never see problems set up like "John seasons his stew with a ratio of 3 parts salt to 2 parts pepper" or "Bob drives...
I currently have a weekend job teaching SAT prep classes, so I'd consider myself decently up to date on how the test goes. First off, there is no trig on the main math SAT. That would be the math IIC SAT II. Second, the SAT is very puzzle-oriented, in the sense that it's really testing one's ability to reason and see how to work with a certain set of information and apply it to solve a certain task. It tests one's ability to recognize patterns, filter out...

I can see that with limes, but lemons? I've worked with more than my share of Mexican immigrants (restaurant biz), but have met numerous ones who didn't know what a lemon was before coming to the U.S. and only used the word "limon" to refer to limes.
