  1. bitter  

    much? I don't know any of those Council people and I don't care. But you really don't deserve to be here if you're still juicy-campusing the winning Council ticket.

  2. Oy with the poodle  

    Wow you're....cool? I really don't get this.

    First, who the hell are you talking about? Second, stop watching Gossip Girl. In real life it's not being catty, you're just sad and not twelve I assume. And three, posting the same thing in three different headlines confirms that you are a creature devoid of wit. If you're gonna be bitchy, be good at it.

  3. sunburnt  

    No swine flu mention, Bwog?

    Also, let me join the "grow the hell up" chorus regarding the Shirley troll.

  4. AJ Pascua  

    We lost, you all hate us, we get it. Stop posting trash about us.
    Just because Shirley and I want to be investment bankers doesn't mean we're bad people. We wanted to bring actual change to this campus - I don't get all the BS on this website about resume padding.
    I guess you bitter people out there hiding behind the internet will never know. Class of 2010-
    good luck next year.

  5. Uhh...  

    That quote could probably be attributed to any member of Council so it's not really fair to single this Shirley girl out.

  6. listen to your alum  

    Seriously, Barry's got it right. Cut the administrative waste, streamline shit. This place will never be affordable, but it's a step in the right direction.
