basically, whatever affects you, eh?

??  ???  Go re-read my previous statement.  I'm well over the age where such laws affect me.  Even when I was a minor and in highschool, however, I never lived in an area with such laws nor did I ever experience age discrimination (except, of course, drinking laws and R-rated movies)

"kiddos" -?? puh-lease!

I've never been a fan of age-discrimination.

... it's not discrimination if it's reflective of reality. People under 25 (especially men) are far more likely to get into car crashes or otherwise damage the car. Again, to compensate for this, the rental companies can either charge those under 25 more, distribute the cost to everybody, or not rent cars to 25 year olds. What other options are there?


Well, statistically speaking the elderly are more likely to be in an accident than middle aged folks. So why no surcharge for them? Also, minorities are more likely to commit crimes than non-minorities. Curfews, anyone?

been crusading against discrimination for long?

Yes, age discrimination really gets under my skin (and yes, I still feel this way even though such laws no longer affect me).  Especially curfews, policies that prevent groups of young people from entering a store together (i.e. 7-11), drug testing and lack of free speech at schools, etc.  Frickin' ridiculous.

Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / Re: Hold at Maryland
« on: April 02, 2005, 08:11:05 PM »
I am def. considering maryland.  I currently am finishing up my undergrad at The University of Maryland and I was hoping to stay in the area and practice law in Maryland.  To be safe though, I will put down a deposit at either Chicago Kent or Temple, haven't decided which one yet, because while hold sounds better than waitlist I still have no idea whether or not I will get in.  I am taking a course with a professor here (Graber) who is a dual professor for the The University of Maryland and the College of Law and hes really good, so that makes me like the school even more.  Would you guys consider it if you get off hold? 

Hey, what are your stats? 

GRABER ROCKS!!

Edit: I see your stats.  Plenty of my friends w/lower stats got accepted already simply because they applied early.

Yes, as opposed to old people, who by driving their boat-sized cars 20mph under the speed limit in the fast lane and never look when backing up are CLEARLY a better bet for car rental agencies.

Debating between going to Europe (I graduated in December and have already done some post-grad travelling, so it might be time to sit still for awhile) and getting one of those wonderful summer jobs (i.e. getting high in the employee bathroom and serving ice-cream to HS kids and seniors).

What a load of bullsh*t!!. If anything, they should determine your rate based on how long you've had your license and your driving record. I've had my license longer than tons of 25+yr olds. >:( >:( >:(

how long have you had a driver's license?

6.5 years.  And only one crash, which wasn't my fault (really, Officer!)
