Ah, so you're going with the Tarantinian revenge aesthetic with your PS. I'd highly advise sending in an Ennio Morricone tape along with your essay and kindly asking the admissions committee to play it on loop while they read your polemic. Just make sure you don't come off as jaded; make them aware that you've learned from your errors and this time around you will win the showdown (bloodbath) between you and Obamacare. Godspeed.

I didn't think you were an idiot until you wrote "irregardless."

If your statement uses exponentially like you did here expect to get dinged. Hey what is the worst that can happen? You come off like a nut?

I'm pretty sure ACA hasn't even taken affect yet....if your premiums went up, that's the insurance companies sticking it to you. Additionally, if you premiums went up, couldn't you sign up through the exchanges to get a cheaper plan? Or am I missing something here?

You should, without a doubt, do this. I also recommend leaving in the part about "people couples". It will reassure adcomms that your business was not serving dogs, or gays.

I'm mostly curious why they were "attempting" to get married. Were they routinely unsuccessful?

No, we delivered flowers to engagement parties. We would 'surprise' the soon-to-be-married 'couple' with beautiful wilted bouquets; as arranged per their parents, or other guardians.


160 troll. Devolved too quickly.

Lol'd at "sticking it to you". ACA mandates bro. Insurers have been preparing for it for years. If you mandate that plans feature MORE features, then of course the price will go up.

Yeah, I didn't request any deletions in here. I've got no idea what that's about.

My apologies. If it's any consolation, I'm quite certain that OP was a troll from xoxohth. He also trolled about affirmative action, LGBT applicants, and getting caught cheating on the LSAT.

Yeah, oops.

OP was about writing his PS about how Obamacare drove his business into the ground, and he wanted to he a lawyer to destroy it. The business was delivering dead flowers to engagement parties? That was the point at which it started to devolve.

Read this a few days ago and was curious. Enough pieces have been replaced that I can fill in the gaps with the most humorous tone.

Enjoyable troll attempt thanks.
