I'll be in the same boat. Putting a positive spin on it: think of it as motivation to do well in your classes. :D

Got my letter yesterday...I got nothing. NOTHING!!!

I'm still curious about the info that is supposed to be appearing on the SIS. Has anyone seen anything there yet?

<---I do. Need a roomate, that is.

I suggest Marcus Epstein.

I grew up in Alexandria VA, and attended the College of William and Mary where I received a B.A. in History with a focus on American diplomacy in 2006. There I edited the conservative student newspaper, The Remnant. I currently live in McLean, VA. I have been admitted to the University of Virginia School of Law and will begin taking classes in August 2009; at which point I will more or less suspend my political activities.

Wow. He always pops up on the 6-8 people you see on the UVA Class of 2012 site and I always thought he looked like a pretty innocent kid.

I have to ask the question, though. Where's the evidence that the organizations this guy is a member of are white nationalist/supremacist or racist? That SPLC article reads like a baseless witch hunt.

Oh, man. I don't even know what to say about this kid. I just hope he's in my mock class on Friday for the discussion on Lawrence v. Texas :lol:

HAHA

He is on the facebook group looking for a roommate too... "No Mexicans please"

Seriously though, it sounds like that description might be exaggerating a bit. Since when is Pat Buchanan the leader of a white nationalist group?

TITCR. I may not agree with that level of conservative politics (by that I mean Pat Buchanan) but labeling people who disagree with your POV as "racists" is fooktarded.

huh? really?


Is that article NOT full of loaded terms? "Extremist", "white nationalist", "white supremacist", "anti-immigrant hate site", "racist", "racial hatred". It seems like they're implying guilt by association, and the labels they've thrown at those organizations maybe not even be applicable. I'm just saying I'm not going to assume this guy's a racist asshole just because a liberal website told me so. If there are articles he's written or speeches he's given that suggest he is a racist asshole, then I'd love to see em, but I think there's a reason the SPLC hasn't cited his articles or speeches, as they might be contrary to how they're trying to portray this guy.

I thought the Financial Aid lady told us that UVA didn't give less than 10k a year in aid? Or was that 10k total?

Is Epstein quite the demon SPLC and other groups make him out to be? Maybe not. Still, not someone I'd particularly want to socialize with.


Well put. I hope he is at ASD to see what he is like in person. I'm also curious how many mariachi dancers is too many in his book.

I find it ironic that someone who wants to preserve a "Western Civilization" that was almost entirely built by Christians and is rife with Judo-Christian principles is agnostic.

Marcus was at the March 13th ASD. I met him but, never really had a chance to speak to him. In fact I think I introduced myself to him 3 separate times not realizing we had already met.... yeah. I'll reserve any judgement about him off this site.

Secondly, I remember some kid asking a question about how many words per minute would be necessary to type on his computer while taking notes in class. Thought you would appreciate that one. Ha.

Now that I think about it, did you guys receive confirmation that you submitted and they received your financial aid application? I don't remember getting an e-mail or anything like that, and I don't see anywhere on the website that I can check.

I thought the most awkward moment during the Q&A with the current students was when that dood's Father asked how to go about finding a "study partner."
