    Binghamton is supposed to be pretty hard to get into now.
    I think you need basically a 3.0 to be guaranteed admittance. There's some leeway... I'm going to apply to their new MSW program soon.

    I would think you would need higher than a 3.0 to be guaranteed admittance since their admittance rate to their undergrad program is around 40%.

    I'm not interested in Binghamton, I just know this stuff because I hear my uncle brag about how great it is all the time, although when he went there 15 years ago it wasn't even nearly as hard to get into as it is now.

    Interesting.....
    yeah, but those parades move!!!!! they aren't burning flags and laying in the street!

    Not to mention they also get permits for those parades and plan them for months in advance.

    Yes boys and girls, they are LEGAL

    while the protesters that clog the streets and stop ambulances without a permit or any real degree of orginization are ILLEGAL

    It seems to me that theese nutcases could learn a thing or two from some protesters here in the Bay Area that are doing it the right way.

    The have positioned themselves at the local BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit) stations and are singing peace songs and playing music for peace. They arent stopping people, they aren't blocking roads, they aren't commiting illegal acts. Those people are the ones that are doing it the right way, and if the other millitant nutcases would pull their collective heads out of their anal cavities for a few minutes, they would realise that they are alienating the fencesitters and hurting their own cause, unlike those people who are singing for peace.
    My Nomination for dumbest statement of the year.
    Said regarding the 10 commandments statue.

    If the NY protests were so peaceful, why is CNN reporting on them as

    "Antiwar protesters blocked two lanes of traffic and a busy intersection Thursday morning in Midtown Manhattan as part of a planned "die-in." A coalition of antiwar groups broke through police barricades and lay down at 50th Street and Fifth Avenue to act as mock war victims. "

    Sounds like a far cry from "peaceful protest". Nothing in the Constitution protects this sort of activity, and I hope that every person who participated is in jail right now.

    Amen.

    When someone who claims to be excersizing his or her right to free speech and assembly... infringes on My rights to live, then they are breaking the law with their double standard...
