Furthermore, UNC dental school does not excuse a leave of absence for research or academic purposes (eg, international scholar programs) so why does it allow Ashley Puleo the semester off to compete in a beauty contest?
ehop24 said:She started the year with the class of 2007. After winning Miss NC and finishing the first semester, she realized that her duties as Miss NC (suprisingly quite extensive) were too much to balance with being a D1.
She is now a member of the class of 2008, and will be joining them for spring semester next year. The University would not allow her any advanced standing etc for classes next year, regardless of how much she can audit. Therefore, all of her auditing is only for personal benefit. FYI, she had been in class alot up until the pageant. I would guess she will be in class a bunch afterward as well.
She's planning on pedo.
Like it or not dentistry is also a business in the USA. Promotion is part of the game. People have diffferent takes on Donald Trump, but one thing he is reported to have said is that it amazed him how careless some folks are when it comes to prepping a product for optimum sales potential. The example he gave was the $200.00 a lot of folks forfeit on the private sale of a used car because they do not take time to wash it before putting it on the market.Sam Spade said:The publicity it generates? Dignified educational institutions seeking publicity through popular entertainment? This is not how I like to see my professional school represented. Now if she was in the public eye as a talented athlete or
musician, I'd be supportive, but please.. it's a beauty contest.. and what a farce.. really, am I the only one who'd never even heard of the Miss USA pageant? As I understand, our lovely Miss NC is currently occupying two positions in the dental school (Class of 2007 and 2008) that could have otherwise been filled by two individuals that actually want to be dentists.
FYI, the Miss USA contest feeds into the Miss Universe contest. I only know this cuz i went to a Miss Greater Los Angeles Contest (the feeder for the Miss California USA contest), where I fell in love with Miss Teen California....(it ok, she was 18!).sxr71 said:BTW, I'd have to question where you're from if you haven't heard of the Miss USA pageant (did I understand you correctly?). I mean pageants like Miss World and Miss Universe gets broadcast in over 100 nations. Her pic was probably in 1000s of newspapers worldwide. Right or wrong, money talks.
Hey now, my school had someone on Survivor! Jed Hildebrand was not only on Survivor Thailand, but he told the dean he was going to Thailand over the summer for missionary work(he basically skipped a bunch of class). The dean found out when his picture was on the cover of USA Today. If that wasn't enough, he was voted the laziest "survivor" and got voted off pretty early. I don't think Miss UNC is that bad for your school, personally.Sam Spade said:Sorry boyz, this girl is a total embarrassment to my school, the profession, and above all, the women in dentistry that are trying so hard to be taken seriously.

I can't stand people like that, but I imagine I had better get used to it.DcS said:Her classmates get frustrated because they have to wait on instructors who are helping her instead of them....even though she will be taking operative dentistry over again next year, while they will be in clinic having to work on patients. I think that most students would get frustrated in this situation.
