Ohstacey, what are your numbers if you don't mind me asking? I've got a friend who has Mercer as their top choice so I'm just trying to compare numbers.

My highest LSAT is 151, horrific UGPA. I'm getting my MPA (better GPA) in May. They rejected me last year, so I guess I am a little more attractive this time around. It's going to be a long wait....

So what are your friend's numbers? When did he/she apply??

Hey all, this is my second cycle...and I've already had some surprises.

Jones Law, who accepted me last cycle (with $$) when I applied the day before the deadline, swiftly rejected me about a week ago. I applied much earlier this time, obviously. I'm guessing it's because I chose not to attend...who knows.

Last year I received a rejection letter from Mercer around March. This year, they replied much earlier notifying me I'm on the waitlist. So I'm hopeful.

App still pending at Georgia State, my top choice, obviously.

I'm not applying to anymore T4's. Got into JM ATL last cycle, but just not interested in taking on six figure debt to attend there....

So I'll be waiting it out probably through the summer all over again. :-\

They just waitlisted me. My file went complete just after Thanksgiving... I also see some acceptances on LSN beginning 12/12.

all I know is naturallybeyoutiful's avatar is on pizzoint.  Lauryn Hill is fine. 

also, it goes both ways harlem.  I've dated dark skinned women many a time and have heard comments to the affect of I was only doing so to be more "black" and to compensate..and grass is greener comments  I guess people should just date people that look like them

Wow, that's crazy about the reactions to you dating dark-skinned women....

NMH about Lauryn Hill. She is one of those people who looks even more beautiful in person. She is drop-dead gorgeous, and has the most perfect skin ever!

This is a long post, but I'll try to be concise.

Animals, as they are not humans, are not entitled to all the rights that humans are entitled to (IMO).  Whereas it is never appropriate to kill or even harm  humans to help, protect or save other humans, it is sometimes appropriate to impose physical suffering (or even death) upon animals.

This is true, and I agree, but there is a difference between that and cruelty towards animals, regardless of purpose.

I am most disturbed by Vick (and dogfighters in general) because of their motives.  In this situation, animals aren't being tortured to further any goal, they are only suffering so that sick people can delight in their torment.  This is wrong.

If dogfighting were necessary to cure AIDS or cancer or in some other way benefit humans, I would say go for it, even though these dogs would still have to endure the same pain and suffering.  Humans are just more important.

This is why I am less upset about the USDA's practices.  Humans are naturally omnivorous and animal flesh is a necessary part of most people's diets.  I don't believe, as you claim, that farm animals are "tortured" - I do agree that they suffer physical discomfort and I think this is ok, if unfortunate, because as I said, human needs eclipse animal rights.

Physical discomfort is different from abuse, which is unecessary and not required to accomplish the task of feeding people. It is already known that animals suffer in some ways, how can they not? I am against abuse/torture of any kind. Also, since when is animal flesh a necessary part of most people's diets???

That said, humans should not have license to cause gratuitous pain and suffering for animals.  Though not human, they have the capacity to feel pain and we should try to keep their discomfort to a minimum.

You are repeating yourself. What is your point?


ok, I'm through with you.

No seriously. I wasn't trying to be funny, but it's nice that you have a sense of humor. ???
