I haven't posted to anyone on a message board in years. You have me
mixed up with someone else.

Then post proof. Like I said, I highly doubt it.

What black kid?

Looks to me like paying for accessing that site only succeeding in
pissing you off. It has done you no good, nor any of your kids.

I'm curious, since you seem so concerned about education, and act like
you know the effort it takes to get to higher education and obviously
sense its value, then why do you diss Marks education? Is it because you
were never able to achieve that level for yourself?

Yeah, it looked to you like Stanford didn't admit average kids also.
But you were proven wrong.

As I said, buy a clue; it only costs $14.99 to subscribe to the actual
facts about college admissions in the US.

And again I point out how utterly IGNORANT it is to make moronic
claims about kids you know absolutely nothing about. You're an idiot.

Are you one of his sock puppets, or what? I have no idea what his
education is, nor do I care. I've seen the evidence on here of what
he chose to do with it though. You might think getting thrown out of
one's chosen profession is admirable; intelligent people do not.

I'm quite certain my level of education is at least as high, and I
know my level of professional achievement and wealth are higher.
But again, you can continue posting idiotic attacks about someone you
know nothing about if you think it somehow makes you look better.

I guess it hurts your feelings to have been shown to be totally
misinformed when it comes to Stanford admissions...too fcking bad.
Learn to deal. Admit you were clueless and move on.

You tell him Jan. Go for it!

I have been trying to tell s/h/it that, but you keep defeating my
efforts.
