Re: [Dovlatov] foreign language requirement

I apologize if my tone came off as angry, but I felt that the tone of mpagan's response was condenscending, and I think a lot of other people would, too, if that response was directed toward them.

Secondly, my comments were not anti-education, they were "anti-arbitrary busywork," which is how I perceived the requirement described above.

This is my opinion, and since this is a public forum, I feel entitled to express my opinion. It is also my opinion that the Michigan students posting on these messageboards tend to come across as smug and self-cogratulatory. This is my simply my personal impression, which, again, I'm entitled too.

Don't worry, though. In the future, I'll stay off the Michigan thread, where it seems that one is not allowed to challenge or question the Michigan program.
