It would most definitely mean a lot to the guys who made the film if people showed up. If they don't sell enough tickets, they will likely have to cancel some screenings. Just FYI...

    I saw its back in the fall, on 13th street. I thought it was a great film. The circumstances Detroit faces on a daily basis is unreal.

    For the anyone in the Bronx, I run at Macombs Damn Park, where the old Yankee Stadium was located, several times a week.

    Looks like it's playing in Brooklyn this time in a couple different spots on the 5th and 6th. I hope to make one of them. We can share a popcorn if you want (slight homo)...

    There are two things to we can do which come to mind:

    1) File an "amicus curiae" brief with the Second Circuit which is basically a brief explaining how the case will effect us as a group and how we'd like to see it turn out

    2) Write an editorial in a major newspaper and hope to gain attention

    What about another show in public? assuming there are enough of us, and firing off letters to people in conjunction with what you wrote above.

    There are certainly enough of us, its just a matter of somehow organizing and informing enough of us that are effected, so we can have a large enough group show up to be newsworthy. Unfortunately I'd say probably about 1% of the people who took exam 2000 even know about this forum. Firing off some editorials to local newspapers seems like a logical step in the right direction. I've only seen about 6 in the past few years having to do with our situation and none were written by candidates. We had a website going back in the 6019 days as well.

    Putting Merit Matters in the loop might help as well. I know in general they feel like our exam was flawed but they know its going in no matter what and I'm sure they'd rather have the PHs out of the equation.

    For a public showing to be effective, we'd need media coverage

    Hey guys, I was filling out my packet and was unsure as to where we write about our past summonses.
    If I remember correctly the last packet had a separate section for them. Are you guys writing them in under the "convictions" section, even though they are not "arrests"?

    Thanks in advance!

    Page 3 is where you list all your convictions that aren't traffic related. Page 14 is where you list all your traffic convictions. If you were found guilty for any of the offenses, you will need to list them.

    Also I didn't see it mentioned to bring in the Certificate of Disposition for any offenses, but I will bring them anyway.

    I'm Not sure but is that really a big deal? I don't know if it is or not but most people have some form of herniated disc and don't even know it. At least most who have ever hurt their back and just never went to the doctor.

    any form of back injury or acl/mcl (knee) injury is going to throw up some red flags. If they don't have you sign a form releasing your right that your insurance records stay private or however u say it(allowing them to see your medical records), I would recommend staying silent about it.

    You guys are confusing me. So you're saying that ONLY if you're a vet you sign over access?
