General Off-Topic Board / Re: Why Obama will lose in the fall
« on: June 08, 2008, 05:49:59 PM »
all-out left-winger

This is where you lost me.  Sorry, kid.

Moi aussi.

I'm an all-out left-winger.  Obama pales in comparison ;).

Thing of it from a right-winger perspective! ;)

Unfortunately, race will be the only reason discussed should Obama lose.

There are some other factors that would cause people to not vote for Obama that people are forgetting about:

1) We forget the "one-issue" voters who will vote based entirely on either a pro-gun or pro-life agenda... in other words, Republican.
2) Sadly, many evangelicals still vote the way they are told... in other words, Republican.
3) The presumptive Republican candidate isn't... well, he's not that Republican. And for the many, many moderates that exist, they may want to go with a middle-of-the-roader, instead of an all-out left-winger.
4) It was a lose-lose for Democrats. I am a white male. Just yesterday, I expressed my glee that Obama beat Hillary... and someone said, "You only didn't want her because she's a woman!" And she was dead serious. So for Democrats, either you're a racist or against women's rights. The Democratic race was never about the issues, it was the woman vs. the black. And that is unfortunate.

Nobody talks about the fact that blacks overwhelmingly voted for Obama. Is that racism?

Let's pay attention to the real issues: plans for the economy, the housing crisis, alternative fuel sources, etc. Now is a great time to unite our country, not to make it more divisive.

Being from Michigan, I'm hoping that there are some people well versed in the Columbus area.. especially with food! :) I know there is an Italian town someplace around there.

Columbus is amazing with food! Every possible type imaginable. If we have time to eat.

LOL nice. I was more thinking "if I can afford it."

Honestly, going out to eat with friends is going to have to be one thing I have to keep my sanity...

Oddly enough, I went down to Columbus last week and paid $3.38. The next day, it was $3.79. Now it is $3.99 here in Flint.

I got a package from Moritz with housing info. I thought that was a nice touch.

I am also attending Moritz Law this fall...

I, too, looked at staying at the South Campus Gateway, but it is very expensive. The studio was $735. I checked it out and it was the same size or smaller than a hotel room. And that doesn't include electricity/water/etc.

(After getting my award notification and seeing that they want students "to live modestly," I can't for the life of me figure out why they charge so much at SCG, especially since it's not really a great area.)

I'm about 4 hours from Columbus, and I've been down there a few times already to check it out. Forrent.com and apartmentfinder.com are good resources, as are some apartment ratings sites: http://www.apartmentreviews.net/read-reviews.htm and http://www.apartmentratings.com/

I'm actually looking at staying a little bit further out from the immediate campus area. There is a decent looking place right where 23 South connects with several highways: 71, 270, 315. It seems to be a convenient location near Polaris. The place is Central Park and 1 bedrooms run in the high $600s. I'm hoping to find somebody to room with for my second year to save on rent...

Where should I go next fall? / Re: 160-164 Thread (give or take)

I still have the highest index of the waitlists on LSN.  WTF.

Yeah, I just got my rejection letter today... and I withdrew in writing 5 weeks ago!
Those turkeys made my score 6-2.

I was by far the least impressed with that school of all the ones I visited.
It started with when I set up my visit and they told me to tell them closer to the date because they might lose my information!

I'm still happy with my choice of OSU!

Congrats!

And IU-B got on my nerves. I withdrew from them before I chose OSU because they told me they'd make a decision in mid-April, when the deposits are due! ::) And I sent in my app the first day possible. If you didn't want me, just say so!

I made my decision! Grin OSU it is! And I'm a Wolverine... lol, but Columbus will be great

Same here.  Just sent my seat deposit in.  I'm actually a Spartan.  And I agree about Columbus.  I Cannot wait!!!

Sweet! OSU didn't get much love in this thread, but it's good to know somebody else is going!

I currently live less than an hour from MSU... and they made it really tough on me.
They were literally throwing money at me, including a laptop.
But I decided that I may not want to practice in the tri-state (MI/IN/OH) region (even though as of now I wouldn't mind), and I wanted the flexibility.
