I'm deciding between a T2 with no scholarship and a T3 with a full-tuition scholarship that is almost impossible to renew.

If by some huge amount of luck, I end up in the top 15% at the T2, will I have a chance to get a scholarship for 2L and 3L?

Read that article and give me your opinions.
I'm a moderate, so I'll try to be open minded to your "tax the rich" mentality, but I'm tired of stupid democrat talking points like "I talked to a secretary that pays a higher tax rate than her CEO" People should learn the difference between tax rates, and taxes paid. Often times lower average tax rates actually lead to more tax revenue.


your last name "off"?


That's pretty funny.   You've posted on here over 20,000 times and I'm the jackoff.

If you don't aggree with the article you could just give me your point of view.

Accepted at Gonzaga yesterday with my 151 and 3.13!!! Waitlisted at Idaho and Willamette, rejected at Seattle.   

Congrats.  I really hope they'll let me know soon, my application was complete in December.

I hope you don't take offense, but you must be pretty awesome to get in with those numbers.

Law School Applications / Re: REJECTED, ETC. TODAY
« on: April 04, 2008, 01:32:39 PM »
I'm still waiting on a decision from a T3  (Application was complete more than 3 months ago)
I just looked on LSN and they accepted a non-urm girl with a 151/3.1  but they rejected a different non-urm girl with a 160/2.9

At first I was really  bugged by this, but now I feel kind of good.  It's good that a committee can be smart enough to look beyond the numbers, even though girl #2 seriously got screwed.

I think most people know that all whites don't have it easy.

77% of the citizens in this country are white, (not counting illegal immigrants)
and only 17% make over 100k per year
(according to bestplaces.net demographic information)

I do understand that a lot of people by default consider "white behavior" to be "normal behavior" and that is truly regrettable.

In my personal opinion, if you have the opportunity to crack into that 17% of people who make more than 100k per year, you really don't have room to complain no matter what color you skin is.  Money isn't everything, but if you make money you have A LOT OF OPPORTUNITIES.

You can argue that being white brings privilege and I won't disagree, but I think it's pretty well established that money brings even more.

Oh Reez.  I really should know better than to jump in on this debate after the logical beat down you put on me last time we talked.

I believe that you are absolutely right about what you said, but I don't think AA is doing anything to fix the problem of institutional racism.

I'm a moderate about taxes.  I'm not proposing a fair tax, and I'm not proposing that we eliminate taxes on the rich.  (I do think that rich people are better at creating wealth than the government)
I just think liberals should stop complaining about the unfair tax burden when the upper half of income earners pay more than 96% of the taxes.


I think Elroy is an idiot who's obsessed with burritos.




I've never complained about the amount I pay in taxes and I never will. I think the rich should pay a larger percentage of their income in taxes and I will continue to think that when I myself am in those tax brackets. FYI, that article isn't what I'd call "moderate" in terms of taxes. Its pretty heavily slanted to the right.


I aggree with you.  I heard the conservative side and now I want to hear the liberal side.

I am moderate, but I'm also a capitalist.  I believe that the goal should be increasing the overall wealth of the citizens.  When income goes up, tax revenues go up.

And your rhetorical skills are astounding.  I just said that you "sound like."  I never made any implication regarding your age or living arrangement.

I don't really want to debate healthcare with you or anyone.  It's a really complicated topic, not really fit for bullshitting on a messageboard.  I'll just say I'm against Government involvement in most matters of people's lives.  Even if that might mean lower living standards in some cases (This is almost never the case).  Like I said, choice in this world is everything.


Yeah, what I said was ridiculous in an effort to imply that your statement about me was about as off base as possible.  You have no reason to think I don't pay taxes or live on my own.
I just think you sound like a libertarian because of statements like,  "Choice in the world is everything" and "I'm against government involvement in most matters of people's lives."
Sorry.

I'm not really looking for a health care debate, but I will stand by the fact that fat people drive up your health care costs.

 
We need good mothers and fathers teaching their children healthy principles, and we need better technology.

You sound like someone who's never paid taxes or lived on your own.


I do?   Oh you got me!  I'm really 14 and I have no life experience.  Your mental powers are astounding.


If Senator Obama is right, and reducing obesity to 1980 levels will save the US 1 trillion dollars then don't you think we should do something about the problem?  You don't want the government spending your money and I understand that, but don't you think someone should work to lower your health care costs?
