Law School Admissions / Re: Scared of Obama and Clinton Tax Brackets!

Man Bearly I don't agree with everything you say but these guys sure do like putting words in your mouth and treating you unfairly.

And as for the original point of the thread, taxes and welfare programs, most of you are missing the point.

People against welfare are not all selfish, nor do they think the poor should starve. Rather, many of them believe that they should not be FORCED to help others. I do not think the government should come and take my money and give it to someone else.  That is a form of stealing.  I am perfectly happy to help people on my own, and do it when I can, but I am not happy when someone forces me to do it. 

Why should anyone have the right to take my money and give it to someone else, unless I have gotten it unfairly.  Those of you that support welfare often hide behind the "fairness" veil even though what you propose is obviously unfair.

I'm glad you could say it dischord because frankly, I'm so surprised at the "waaaahh, its not fair" argument by bearly I can't seem to figure out how to formulate an argument against it.

Perhaps, instead of law school, bearly, you should go into science and create functioning artificial wombs that unwanted embryos and fetuses could be placed in. Because until that happens, basic biology will of course drive these laws and societal norms.

Women can birth a baby and then abandon it or give it up, just like a man.

Men, however, can not currently gestate a baby without a woman's cooperation. Unless you are proposing reproductive slavery.

This is as far as i've gotten in the discussion, and I will read more, but I would like to say right now that saradsun it seems as if your position is this: "Women should have all the rights and equality of men, but that if they have more and men complain about it then they are being babies and should live with it."  Furthermore, you seem to keep putting words in other people's mouths and not addressing the questions they ask of you.

Law School Admissions / "Hold" at Columbia = waitlist?

I'm guessing a hold at Columbia is a waitlist?  I was trying to decide if I would go to NYU or Columbia if I got into both but its looking like I won't have to make that decision?

I am assuming they will say something if they want the need access form?

I'm trying to decide between NYU or a school like WashU or Illin. with money....hard to believe I'll be in almost 200,000 in debt if I go to NYU

Choosing the Right Law School / Man picking a school is tough

granted I know that everyone is like "if you get into a top school take it regardless..." but its hard to stomache the fact that I can go to a school like WashU with a decent scholarship and I may turn it down in order to go to NYU or comparable and have to pay for everything with loans.

Truth I'd take UofI with the scholarship you got  ;D

I dont understand why being black means that you bring a diverse outlook to the classroom.  I think that is a racist thing to say.  I think a much better way to ensure diversity in opinions and discussion in the classroom would be to admit students from different income levels, ensure geographic diversity, look for family diversity (single parent homes, siblings, etc...) and so on.  Things that actually do bring a diverse outlook. 

Giving a bump to blacks and other minorities is not about attaining true diversity in the classroom.  Its about attaining the appearance of diversity.

This is just my opinion anyway.  I'm probably biased from being a white male that has lived in a rural town all of his life and that has had to support his own way through college.  I do not see why someone that is black should get a bump that I do not get.  Its not like they have had to work any harder than me.  And I'm not asking for a bump for myself so please do not say that I am bad because of my sense of entitlement.  I believe I am only entitled to what I deserve.

Thus far I am reasonably happy with my UofI, Washington&Lee, and William and Mary acceptances.  I would have liked to receive more money from UofI but we'll see what happens.  If I get rejected from the rest of the schools oh well, I'll still be happy where I end up.

what is the worst thing about UVa thus far?
