I did not make this headline up
If this is too off topic the mods can delete it but I'm just looking for advice. I'm a freshman at Michigan and I'm working on my application to Ross. One of the essays asks why I want to pursue a degree from Ross and I guess I'm just kind of stuck. I want to be unique and not just give a cliche answer but I really don't know what I want to do with my life. Do any of you have any tips for how to approach this essay? Also, if anyone here is a Ross grad, could you explain what makes Ross unique? Thanks for your help in advance and if anyone is annoyed by this post I'll leave this for you.
Edit: Responding to some comments, I'm not looking for anyone to write my essay, I just wanted tips. I know I want to go into a business career but I'm not decided about which field (i.e. consulting, IB, accounting, etc.). I know I have to figure it out for myself I just figured the mgoblog community would be a helpful group to ask for advice and I appreciate the comments I have gotten. And again, if you feel this post isn't appropriate for this site, I'll leave this here.
So I have a busy summer planned attending concerts. I'm going to see Neutral Milk Hotel in Royal Oak on June 18th, and returning to the greater Detroit area on June 19 to see Andrew Jackson Jihad play. Following that up with The Hold Steady in Lansing on July 8th. Also Gordon Lightfoot is coming to Northern Michigan sometime in June, and I may check that out also. What shows do you plan on seeing this summer?
Possibly the worst Wheel of Fortune player I've ever seen.
Adam Schefter reports that Desean Jackson agrees to a 3 year, 24 million dollar contract with the Washington Redskins.
Since it's the offseason, we can welcome more OT.
Brian mentioned in a recent mailbag that he played Skyrim:
I finally broke down and played Skyrim. Do not do this. Skyrim is the kind of awful that only reveals itself after you've set 60 hours of your life on fire listening to boring conversations and dully hacking things in the face. Their open world is beautiful and soulless, shiny on the outside but hollow in the center. Bethesda's mechanics are hopeless broken in every single game they make, and while being able to jump across a continent in Morrowind was charmingly broken, Skyrim's mechanics invite you to a dull, iron-dagger-laden trudge through one moronically designed UI after another.
I recently got Skyrim and started playing it two days ago, and was wondering what you guys thought. Good or bad?
So far in my opinion it's not as good as Fallout 3 from an introduction/understanding-the-world standpoint, but my complaints are not the same as Brian's complaints about the mechanics.
Also, let's try to keep this as spoiler-free as possible in case people haven't played the game and might be considering it.
Thoughts and prayers to his family.
