I thought that myself when I read that article that talked about a Data Scientist(tm)
A seriously silly post in another thread (scholarships in '15) led me to create this thread...
Personally, I always find it kind of weird when people post non-Michigan/non-baby related pictures of themselves on here...but I don't know if I've seen a pets thread. It's Saturday, and it's slow, and we're all waiting for Harbaugh --- so why not take a moment to share pictures of those little (well, maybe little) ones who love us unconditionally?
I'm sure a bunch of folks on here have pictures uploaded to social media anyway...have at it!
And no...this is not your pet no matter how much you want it to be:
P.S. - Harbaugh.
P.S.S. - It's not really that I think it's weird...it's just I already have pictures in my head of what every poster on here looks like and some of you ruin it for me. I'm just bitter.
I'm more of a Lab man myself, but this dog is an American champion. Also, comes with a Heisman-level soundtrack.
Hey, hopefully this isn't too OT (or maybe you'll be relieved to get a break from all the Jimsanity), but I'm currently a sophomore and I've been fidgeting around with my schedule for next semester.
As of now, I'm a declared statistics major, but as part of the major requirements, I took EECS 183 this semester. (For anyone that's confused, 183 and 280 are both coding classes at the university). I went in to 183 having no coding experience of any kind, but in taking the class, I sorta realized I might actually like coding. The next class in the sequence for a CS minor would be EECS 280 (along with Discrete Math (203), but I would hold off on that class for now).
The one thing I'm concerned about though is that I've heard mixed reviews of the class, with half of them people saying it was one of the hardest classes they ever took and having to put in hours and hours of work just to pass.
Basically, I'm just wondering if anyone on the board has had any experience with the class and can help me make a decision. I'm also taking MATH 217 (Linear Algebra), STATS 426, and a Spanish class, so while that might not be the hardest load ever taken, I'm still concerned I don't want to overwhelm myself if I take 280. Thanks.
EDIT: Thanks for all of the input. After tonight, I would say I'm probably leaning towards holding off a semester so I don't have to take it at the same time as 217. I think I could probably do well in the class as long as I put in a lot of work, but I already have a decent load this year, and I don't want to take 280 without knowing I'll be able to fully commit. The minor is only four classes (203, 280, 281 and an elective) so I'd definitely have time even if I wait til next year to take 280.
He's a great AD, don't think we were ever interested (or had a shot)...but interesting to note.
Would've been a slam dunk hire, IMO. (Still hoping for Warde Manuel or Greg Byrne)
To all who are celebrating, Happy Channukah! To those who aren't, happy holiday-of-choice!
After the year that 2014 has been we could all use a Festival of Lights around here. Whether you're team sour cream or team apple sauce, spin some dreidels, eat some latkes, and pray for Harbaugh to come home.
