Tough issue. Schools have to play fair, but IMO they have a greater duty to serve the public by maintaining a standard of who gets to be a dentist. Unfortunately, state licensing board testing does nothing to judge a candidate's personality, work ethic or character, so it's left to the schools.

WHy do you say that? I have followed the thread but where was the turning point in this thread where we are now bashing the OP?

Didn't check for follow-ups to the awards in the articles, did you? Check out http://www.vpcomm.umich.edu/pa/key/pdf/DefendantsMotion.pdf in re: to the 1st article. The University should have went through on the second trial, the 1st award was ridiculous if any of what they say was true. I guess they figured they settled for what their legal bills would be and good riddance?

Didn't bother to read the 2nd article as am sure it is like all those where huge awards are made and then either totally reversed or settled for pennies on the dollar and feel very confident that you didn't bother to check that one out either.

Now, its easier to see why you were kicked out, didn't follow through on you googling before citing either.

You can get out of paying this kind of tax, though... since it is obviously onerous, who can afford such things? You just hire a competent tax attorney for about $500, and they should be able to easily explain this to the IRS.

I agree. A lot of our higher education system is still a holdover from caste European BS. They feel that they own you.

Consider most of these healthcare positions. If you decide to be practical and start school for something achievable, like a dental assistant or hygienist or a nurse, you cannot really continue on and become a dentist or doctor... you essentially have to start over (nurses are probably in a better situation as they can either become a PRN or transfer more of their credits). Basically, it is a system designed to keep the affluent that way and keep those that aren't out of their school. I don't think that many US institutions think of it that way, but that is how it was originally designed and it was meant to do such.

Sue them. Maybe they will let you back in just from that.

Well, he also wrote "to harsh" instead of "too harsh" in his first post... that's lazy.

Thanks for the update. Not sure what your point is though. All I said was that those aforementioned articles were interesting.

Here is problem with OP's version of his predicament:

Graduate schools do not as a rule kick out students. Cheating violates graduate schools rules of professional responsibility and ethics regulations and this is grounds for dismissal. Violence and threats towards another student, teacher or faculty member are grounds for dismissal.

The wearing or not wearing of a mask - may have a great deal of significance in dental school. However, I doubt if - one non-wearing mask transgression - would be a cause for expulsion.

Either the OP has had even more problems than listed or the significance of the transgressions was vastly underplayed in the OP's post.

LIke others before me, I suspect the OP has a mental illness. If I were to venture to guess from his posts - I'd wager he has a narcassistic personality with sociopathic tendencies. My initial suspicion was Bipolar Disorder (Bipolar I) - due to the OP's compusivity. Either way this is serious if the OP is 26 years old - and causing this type of irresponsible harm to himself.

OP, if you do have a mental illness, please seek treatment. It takes a great deal of concerted effort to almost get through dental school - then to get summarily kicked out - so close to graduation.

It is my belief that the character flaws you've outlined in this thread will resurface again and again in any other endeavor you start on.
