No, really. All joking aside, it's fantastic that the college didn't turn him     Down.

Enuratique: I know it's low hanging fruit to make the joke that colleges will accept just about anybody these days, but did none of you actually RTFA? He got accepted into a special program for people with learning disabilities.


To be fair, most colleges have poli-sci programs

I highly doubt if he'll major in any of the STEM disciplines....


True. Those programs only accept the socially retarded...

topcon: Just FYI: UF is called a "public ivy." Not an easy school to get into and has some very well regarded programs.

My son has Down Syndrome
He is 25 and lives at home with us.

He doesn't care about the color of your skin, where you're from or who you choose to love. If you're kind to him he is kind to you in return. He is a shining example of what is good in this world and how we should all treat one another. I  strive to be more like him in this regard and I often fail  to live up to these standards for which it seems comes naturally for him. People with Down Syndrome and other disabilities ARE people, they feel, they laugh and they are hurt by cruel insensitive comments and rude remarks.

All of you have a good night.

So it will major in 'Do you want an apple pie with that?' and minor in 'Communications'

What is the graduate program, 'Memorizing all the Bus Stops'?

Yes, I want him to represent me in court, do my taxes, or possibly operate on my eyes.
You go kid, and I wish you well but currently a BA is the equivalent of a high school diploma of 30 years ago.

High schools are graduating the functionally illiterate these days, and employers want to see a degree just to give you a job as a lousy desk clerk for the simple reason they want make sure that you can read, and understand basic math.

Yeah, it got dusty all right, but only when I realized how much my degree is actually worth these days.

I'm glad I'm getting old.

DrBenway: Given how dusty Fark seems to be getting every day, maybe Drew should invest in a vacuum cleaner. Or buy a swiffer at least. Or a new metaphor.


It's right up there with "smoking hot" as a dead giveaway.

I wonder how he'll do at Potato University? Presumably he'll bring up the grade average at the football team. Hell, he might even score a touchdown, then keep on running out of the stadium. Then he'll defeat china in pingpong.

My guess is he got a full ride to play football.  Big kid.  No fear.  Retard strength.  Won't be much less qualified than any of the other numbskulls accepted to play football.

That's retarded. And no, it did not make me emotional, or whatever the lame 'dusty in here' meme is implying.
