So was it a real disability or a fake one.

Because I think real disabilities should be URM.


The gov defines a real mental disability as one that significantly interferes with your daily life. So, as an example, someone with OCD who has trouble leaving the house because he or she can't complete all of the tasks necessary to do so without taking up their whole day would count as disabled, whereas someone who had a handwashing compulsion(so washed 20 times a day) would only be counted as having a disorder.


TLDR fake.

My brother is quadriplegic that is a real disability.


mental, desert. mental.

I kinda feel like a dick now after your nice PM. I honestly don't think your Gtown rejection was because of your disability. Well unless you consider the impact it had on your gpa. But plenty of people have to deal with stuff like that.

Not getting Gtown isn't the end of the world.

lol. don't worry about it. and yeah I'll get over it. I just really liked their refugee program. Maybe I'll transfer in later. But I do think something needs to be done about this! they took care of physical disability issues a while ago, officially.. disabilities are still underrepresented and overly sketched....

is yours assuming you know the relationship between two people? we've chatted on here before and I think get along just fine in general. obviously, if he's got a brother with a severe physical disability, he's going to disagree with me on this.

Why is that obvious? I disagree with you and I don't have that.

No, no, don't listen to this kitten-hugging pansy bitch. Immerse yourself in the glorious panoply of clusterfucks that abound on TLS from the onset. Do not wait. No, do not hesitate. Go, young man. Go boldly into that vituperated, vulvar vortex. And take your family while you're at it. Skip Coney Island, visit Sibley's Cunt Clusterfuck instead.

Arguments about disabilities aside, it completely reeks of entitlement to pretend that your numbers would ever be auto-admit to Georgetown

Going on about suing and whatnot, I can't help but think if you even HINTED at the kind of attitude you show on these forums it's no wonder Gtown rejected you.

There's nothing wrong with turrets, I have a few friends who play engineer in TF2 and they turned out alright.
