Theaetetus: The ACLJ claims that Dougherty also told Jenkins that his 3.2 GPA was lower than other potential students and that a 10-year-old criminal charge on Jenkins's record could make it difficult to find a job in this field....never mind.
Chabash: Is there a non-opposing view version of the story?
AliceBToklasLives: or maybe it was his lower than average GPA and a 10-year-old criminal charge?
KidneyStone: "Accountability of Abortion Industry"
machoprogrammer: AliceBToklasLives: or maybe it was his lower than average GPA and a 10-year-old criminal charge?What community college has a 3.2 GPA as below-average? It's a community college, not Harvard
machoprogrammer: Unless that GPA is on a 5.0 scale, a 3.2 GPA isn't half bad. That is better than a B average. Especially for a community college
dentalhilljack: If, and that's a big fat IF, everything here is true than the admissions officer is a complete moron and will never get a better gig than at a crappy community college. There's enough evidence not to admit this person because of the GPA and criminal record. You may not like the Jesus worship, but in 2014 you should know enough by now not to opine and open that can of worms. Some things are best left unsaid.
TNel: What scale are they using in Maryland? 4.0 is "perfect" and 3.2 is really bad?So all B's and one A means no college.

Resident Muslim: I'm not sure I follow.Charge = criminal record?
EyeballKid: This person might be what people call "home school smart."
soporific: I'm wondering if the admissions person told him to tone down the God talk thinking she was doing him a favor, trying to help him next time he applies anywhere. The GPA and criminal charge might have been the real reason, and she was trying to help him by saying that the God talk won't be doing him any favors in the medical field. She meant it as a helpful suggestion.
JackieRabbit: This may be true and she may have been well-intentioned, but she still violated the law. In any even't unless, the kid was jesus-freaking throughout the process, she should have made no observations about his religious beliefs. Had he been freaking, the decision not to admit him would have been based on a lack of good judgement and possible mental instability.
