Here is a good blog by some Ave Maria alum that are closely following the controversy surrounding the possibility of moving the school from Michigan to Florida: http://whoseamsol.blogspot.com/
Make that 2 people instead of 1 in my last post. This article sounds like a complete circus.
"But after watching defense attorneys release photos of the accuser, and upset by the leaking of both dancers' criminal pasts, she said she has to "wonder about their character.""
Hilarious. So because she disapproves of the defense team's tactics, they must have raped her. Let's put her on the stand!
"Why shouldn't I profit from it?" she asked. "I didn't ask to be in this position ... I would like to feed my daughter."
Wow. This case is shot to all hell.
Certainly WSJ's editorial page is very conservative but their regular reporting is not.
Is there any kind of link to the story (or at least some more info on what the story says)?
From what I gathered from the article, the ABA's new policy sounded pretty out of line, at least the part you mentioned about schools having to violate the law in order to comply. But then the WSJ tends to be conservative, they may have been exaggerating and/or gotten their facts wrong or misunderstood the ABA's stance or the law. It would not be the first time.
Yeh I knew WSJ has biases which is why I was questioning. But in this case they seem to be right, meaning the ABA is ridiculous.
I think whether he did it or not, that wasn't the issue with black people. The issue was the system and what this trial represented in regards to the system.
P-man, did you get your TexWes e-mail yet?
I might have made one too many (1) references to my being Jewish in my application for their liking.
It's kind of sad, really. I'm from Fort Worth, and I'd rather go to school in San Antonio or Lubbock -- two cities to which I have minimal connection -- than at Wesleyan. I just care too much about my future to do that.
Oh. I'm going to say "Ouch!" for Texas Wesleyan.
Yeah, I can be blunt sometimes.
Of course, I don't want to dissuade someone from going there based on my opinion. The school's got a lot going for it -- they finished their renovation, they've got a good library, a good facility, and they're in the middle of a huge legal market. I just got a little freaked out when I saw that only two employers were listed as on-campus interviewers there according to NALP (and one of them was the state public defender's office). That, compared to 30-50 at St. Mary's and South Texas.
Does paying the full tuition play a part in the decision making process? If so how much.
