For a long time I was supportive of Israel and thought they were the ones being wronged....

Have a look at this website with an open mind. My might change the way you think.

*on a note though, most of the US aid going to Palestine is funnelled through the UN and other organizations so it doesn't show up as directly from the US on these stat on this webpage.

Great flick! One of my all time favorites... forgot to add it to the list.

Personally though it's great because of Edward Norton. I love that guy. Fight Club anyone?

um... Bringing Down the House... my Mertzek or somebody like that. Wasn't necessarily the writing, but the story of MIT students fleecing Vegas... gotta love that.

The thread reminds me of a joke:

What did Helen Keller say when she was handed a cheese grater?

... This is the most violent story I've ever read!


No particular order:

Fight Club
The Maltese Falcon
Sonny (Directed by Nick Cage... about a male prostitute in NO.... great film)

I can't think of anything else at the moment.

Thanks for the response.. it helps. Sometimes my posts don't make a ton of sense. I'm writing in the early AM and trying to get some coffee into me when you're chilling for the evening...

I just wrote a similar thread, and this one has more on it already so I'll write here too.

I just got my waitlist notice as well.

Stats: 151 LSAT, and 3.28 GPA, graduating institution GPA 3.88

I wrote the essay where you had to tell a story.

I'd be so stoked to get in but I can't wait until the very end with moving back from japan and my wife finding a job. That being said, we have an emergency fund that could float us about 6-10 months if necessary.

Does anyone know odds of getting off the waitlist? they told me they wouldn't know anything until about the beginning of May.

Maybe it's just me but I think half this thread is now "tags." I'm one of them so I'm not knocking it, but it's kinda funny.
I have the time to count them all but I'm not quite bored enough for that.

Someone mentioned a ROTC program for Air Force and Army... do all schools have this? Do they need to have one to be part of a ROTC program? I'm probably going to school in a military heavy area (Hampton Roads, VA)


Well I finally got an email over the weekend stating that I'd been put on the waitlist at UB. In some ways I'm extremely stoked. Actually, I am totally stoked! The only drawback is this: They take people off the waitlist up until classes start. I'd love to wait until the last minute and see if I get in, but if I don't get in by June-ish, I think I'll have to withdraw my application. Basically the relocation isn't a big deal but my wife finding a job might be a kicker.... though anyone from WNY knows that schools don't do too much hiring before late July . :)

Anyhow, that's the news.

Wombat! Congrats! names.... Ok, my wife and I talk about names all the time here are two that she hates but I love. both boy names:

Atticus (To Kill a Mockingbird)
Ruttager (from the Simpson's)

I love those names... sadly none of my stirpes will bear those names.

So, not to get you down off your cloud, but how do you guys plan to work this out? You're in LS full time, and I gather she'll be working? Curious... I'd love to hear your plans, as I'd love to have a kid in the next 3 years... We'll see.

again, Congratulations.
