"Jason Bohn, who received his J.D. from the University of Florida, is earning $33 an hour as a legal temp while strapped to more than $200,000 in loans, nearly all of which he accumulated as an undergraduate and while working on a master's degree at Columbia University."sundance95 wrote:DoubleChecks wrote:i could be wrong, but i think they edited the original article because it was misleading and there were some complaints all around
You're not wrong.
Maybe I'm missing something, but what are you guys talking about? The original article did not state that Bohn when to UF. That's the entire genesis of the controversy. See:NYT wrote:This article has been revised to reflect the following correction:
Correction: January 11, 2011
An earlier version of this article misstated the educational history of Jason Bohn, a recent law school graduate. While Mr. Bohn took classes at Columbia Law School, his law degree is from the University of Florida. And while nearly all of his student loan debt was accumulated at Columbia University, it was incurred while he was an undergraduate and while working on a master’s degree, and not at Columbia Law.

uh, im even more confused now bronte. let me recap what went down so far from my point of view:
hazel eyes says bohn's linkedln is misleading...how he did not graduate from columbia law and how the article is misleading
istand asks if hazel even read the article, since the article says bohn received his JD from UF
now this was because the original article was misleading and made it seem as if he graduated from CLS (the links and controversy you reference)...so it was edited. hazel saw original, istand saw edited...which led to my comment on how i thought that it was cause they edited the original to reflect reality.
sundance confirms my comment.
then your comment lol. sundance and i never said the original article said bohn went to UF. in fact, we said the opposite.
