It's because he drinks plenty of his water.

I realize that this topic has sort of passed, but JIK it comes up again.... for the record... GPA, even a 4.0 will not get you into med school. Unless it's in Grenada, and maybe not even then. It might clear the minimum for acceptance based on the outcome of your MCATs, letters of recommendation, personal statement, volunteer/work experience, etc... but nobody gets into any kind of grad school based on GPA alone.

Unless you've got more money than Bill Gates will ever dream of having.

reading this thread - backwards - confuses the hell out of me.

This is what i got out of the last 3 pages...

"If your stray feral cat dies, its ok to grab a werewolf with a 4.0 GPA, go to a college town, and hit up a strip club. But you have to drink a lot of water the entire time"

If thats not what the thread is currently about, i apologize....

Don't worry about it, Yeti. The Mads have been playing cut and splice again. Basically, Biffer (the feral cat that lived at OleCapt, and The Admiral's place) crossed the Rainbow Bridge. A couple of nasty trolls attacked him over it, and with due humility our Fearless Leader suggested that they place their concerns over his posts in an orifice that doesn't receive regular solar illumination. Lex is back, proving that he really hasn't learned anything from our sage advice. He's thinking that doctors here can live like rock stars, and that a 3.4 GPA, and taking four classes will get him into a medical school. We all know that he's having some rather unusal dreams, induced by consuming mass quantities of Lexusman Water.

That about covers it, I think.

Ah, thanks for the GPA save, Airics. I assume that it your travel went smoothly.

It's good to hear that you made it in safely. That final descent in to Las Vegas can be a bit bumpy. So, how was first class? I've only flown coach.

Dang snow, it really screws everything up doesn't it!! Glad you made it safely. Jealous you are in a warmer place, but happy for you.

Are you there for good now?
