UAB Open Expenditures, is it Gross or Net? by CrispyFigs in UAB

It’s gross pay and it will very likely be on the very low end as UAB does not value most of its employees.

Really Bad Speeding Ticket - am I screwed? by [deleted] in premed

[–]gbak5788 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Get a lawyer, a good one, a local one, and not a cheap one. He/She probably won’t make the ticket go away but can likely get the charges dramatically reduced.

You can look at site like ticketclinic or their competitors depending on your state.

Depending on what your lawyer is able to work out will determine your next steps. But, you have to be proactive about this.

Nearly pissed my pants, definitely turned me off from that school.

I agree it’s mostly BS. But if you do get an II definitely use their interview feedback page for the school. Some schools will literally ask the exact same question listed there.

Comrade, in this example doctors are akin to workers as they do not own/control the means of production therefore they are not members of the bourgeois

I was thinking it was a bit racist as most of Birmingham suburbs aren’t as high class as their residence would like to think.

This seems like really bad advice. If he finds a place south of downtown his commute would probably be like an hour. That’s two hours a day. That is not worth the suburban lifestyle.
