"I would like to start by apologizing to my fellow classmates. My comments were uncalled for and I feel nothing but regret for saying them. Simply, I was wrong and take full responsibility for the comments.
I stumbled upon this post months ago, and wrote a few comments which I have deleated. I actually forgot about even posting the comments until a friend outed me as one of the posters (rightfully so). However, much has changed since I wrote those past comments. Until all this got started up, the school had actually began to grow on me and I had just started to actually like being here. One of my friends even stated that she had noticed how "positive" I had been lately. I never had any issues with the student body, and I believe that the students at Mercer are its strongest asset. Most of the students here at Mercer are kind and I have enjoyed getting know them. My comments were not meant to debase any of the students at Mercer. Most of the students at Mercer are highly intelligent and I'll admit that I shouldn't even be sitting the same class with most of them. The comments I made were simply out of frustration. True, it is expensive, but as a friend recently told me, " you knew that when you came". That's a true statement.
I did have intentions of transfering, but recently I decided not to. As I stated earlier, I actually began to feel at home here and began to like it. Now, I simply do not know what I will do considering that I have actually started to like it and the people don't like me. I don't want to be where I am not wanted. So I don't know what I will do.
As for the quality of education, I have never thought that Mercer provided an inferior quality of education. The teacher here are demanding and for the most part all of them are great. My hostility was soley based on price which was my fault.
I admit I made a mistake and acted like a child and bear responsibility of such actions.
Therefore, I hope my apology will be accepted, but I can understand the hurt that it caused.
It's true that I did go to rural junior college in Tifton called ABAC before I went to UGA. I don't regret that decision and am not ashamed of it either. In addition, I do love rural life and love spending every possible spare minute I have on my farm. I have many faults, but my love of rural life is simply not one of them."
Apparently this whole debacle turned into an IRL witch hunt for the guy!
