    We all know people like this guy, or if you don't you will. I wouldn't waste anymore energy than you already have.
  4. hey Pre-hawkdoc: Give it up dude! I think you stand a better chance of helping humanity by working in those Iowa cornfields and making sure we all get our corn. You know you're not going to med school.

    pre hawk doc,
    I agree, this person is a jerk. I have a feeling that soon we will all be pointing to him saying, "that is what is wrong with medicine today." It is sad that some school would take such a person. I wonder who he paid off to get in.

    No, I would never go to such a place. I am sure you will have fun there next year.
  10. Hey star: Don't lie you know you were there and loved it. Saying that you would not go to such a place makes you sound racist. That is not good if you wanna be a doctor. I guess you have no compassion for non-whites.

    jose- get a freakin life!!! Where are U going next year? I can tell why you spend so much time on this forum. You have NO friends. Stop trying to tell people where they can and cannot go. Star, I wish you the best. I too have heard him tell me discouraging things. He is just a waste of life.

    And you are an embarrassment to whatever race you are so leave people alone!! are you upset because you only got into meharry? I am not saying anything negative about the school, it just seems like you have some agenda because you have been rejected by a number of schools.

    jose, why do you go around bashing every body? you act as if you are gods gift to medicine. well if the only place you got in was meharry, that should humble you right up. if your real name is jose and from east la then i assume you are mexican. it's hard enough for us urm students to get respect. don't make it any worse.
  13. Personally, I don't think he's worth our time. He's obviously just trying to ruffle some feathers. Maybe if we ignore him, he'll go away.

    Quick question? Why does a predominatly African-American have to be singled out as a target of ridicule. These schools exist for a very important purpose. Unfortunately, that selfsame purpose deems that they will never garner very much prestige outside of the African-American community, but what's "prestige" anyway. It's pretty much the opinion of people you'll never know or ever meet. In fact, noone has the capacity of bestowing prestige upon you face-to-face.

    But I digress, Meharry, Howard, and Morehouse have their share of problems, and sadly, the lower stats and ethnic background of their entering class dooms them to all sorts of stereotypes based on superficial and sometimes concocted information. Yet, that change their importance to American society. I remember reading in a past edition of " Best Medical Schools" from Princeton Review that Meharry and Howard had graduated 50% and 25% of the African American physicians in the United States. This may seem unrealistic in comparison to the demographic breakdown of today's schools, but considering that the physicians of today or composed of all graduationg classes from decades past, then this seems very logical. Also, it should be noted that the overwhelming majority of these physician seek employment in under-privelaged African-American neighborhoods where they are subject to all the lower finances and tougher working conditions that these areas carry with them. Considering the failed 3000 by 2000 campaign attempred by the AMA, this starts seeming very significant. Not-to-mention, the current surgeon general was one of Meharry's past presidents. One of the former director's of Health and Human Services was past president of Morehouse School of Medicine as well.

    Jose, while I am happy that you are going to receive a medical education, ( Need more Hispanics in medicine, too [​IMG] ) don't bring yourself to point of ripping apart medical institutions. Especially, since they receive so much flack as it is. Think about it. How many times on this board alone have we seen people use these schools and sometimes the scools based in Peurto Rico as a model for "lower-tier" or " where not to go schools". Heck, you guys should visit the message board sometimes. Those guys are horrible.

    I wish you luck in school Jose, but calm it let's watch ourselves.

    Although, I sense an underlying tone of condensation in your statement, I agree with you. Your purposes probably don't coincide with Meharry's therefore making it an undesirable school for you. Good luck to you wherever you are or will be!

    In good faith,

    I think jose just has too much time on his hands. Some people think the anonymity of this forum is an open invitation to be jerks.
  16. I just wanted to see what kinda response I would get if I mentioned Meharry to a caucasian applicant. As far as I know, an MD is an MD no matter what US med school you get it from. I am not going there but I know people who do and when they graduate they are called doctors just like someone that graduated from Harvard.

    Just remember that was the response from ONE caucasion...not all of us. Personally, I would have gone to school in Timbuktu if that's what it took!

    Personally, I think the only reservation I might POSSIBLY have about attending a predominently Black school is whether or not *I* would feel welcome in their class....would THEY want ME there????

    Poor josejalapeno, so misunderstood...

    Actually, I have to say I've been really shocked to see how many people are actually taking him seriously...
  20. Hey Cowboy: I was surfing a porn site the other day and I remember seeing you in the bestiality section. I remember you were the one having fun with the animals. Your comment said something to the extent that being from MT, your favorite animal was the donkeys and the horses because they are well-endowed.(hmmm I wonder?). I liked your pic where you were bending over posing with the bulls. You seemed to enjoy your life in good old MT. Are you still thinking of marry your sister or your dad? At least you won't be as bored in lonely MT.

    Come on folks. Can anyone really take a guy with the name "josejalapeno" from "East L.A." seriously? [​IMG]

    I do think however that his Meharry remark was uncalled for. Nevertheless, this guy is obviously being controversial on purpose to draw a reaction. Simply laugh and move on. This board is full of such people.

    If "josejalapeno" is indeed your real name and "East L.A." is where you are indeed from, then I stand corrected. [​IMG]

    It just seems too coincidental...kind of like you are playing off of a Hispanic stereotype.
  24. Hey josejalapeno,
    It made me smile to see that I got a rise out of you with my simpleminded insult (you must not have seen the Sinatra spoof on SNL). I take it from the flood of low-brow, juvenile invective you loosed on me that you are extremely immature and don't know how to channel your feelings and impulses through acceptable outlets. If it makes you feel any better, I want you to know that I understand that you have shortcomings and deficits in this area, and I forgive you for them.

  25. Cowboy: Maybe you wanna think twice next time before insulting someone.

    Does anyone else (besides lilycat and I) find it curious as to recent demise of MEAT and the recent birth of jose?

    Maybe we have a reincarnated spirit here. Even if they are different, we always have someone around these parts to ruffle a few feathers. Just ignore his comments or have fun with them, do not take them seriously (even if he actually means them to be) - its not worth your time and energy.

    Personally, I kind of like the occasional smart-a**ed comment, by the likes of Jose or anyone else. There is so much touchy-feely advice given, sometimes just need some thorns. So the next "Do I have a chance" post watch out, Jose will get ya.

    If you don't like the guy, don't reply to his post.(or start a thread about him)

    I am fairly new to this board, but could his posts be that bad?

    Well said Cowboy. How are things in Boozeman? I went to school there for a year.
  31. Star23: still waiting to hear from Iowa? See I told you.

    josejalapeno: I WILL be more careful who I insult. However, we both know that we're verbally sparring for the fun of it. I like a man who knows how to provoke a controversy, and I've enjoyed reading your work. Peace.

    star: Boozeman's fine. The library is getting renovated this year, and the football team may actually win a game next season.
  33. Hey Boozeman: No worries. I know we are both screwing around. So since you are from MT I would asume your state school is UW. Are you applying there or are you already in? I am going to UW so if you are headed there I will see you in the fall.

    Wow. A non-insulting post by jj. I'm impressed. I guess group therapy for agression really does work. :D
