Everybody over-signs grad students. :(
this week in unintentionally grim-sounding recruiting headlines
Everybody over-signs grad students. :(
Ha! How true.
Washington, in case you were wondering.
...kills people, murders people...
Damn you MGoBlog why can't I +1 when I am blurry eyed drunk and feel so compelled...I guess I am relegated to getting blind drunk
If someone is awake and has an iPhone can you cut and copy Brian's Front page "NON-Hoke Options:Extant" to the MGoBoard so we can discuss. Either I'm an Idiot (debatable), I cannot create content and I'm Ass-u-meing you tech people can. Thanks.
Calling Alabama a "school" may be a bit of a stretch.
In all seriousness, when I was applying to law school, Alabama Law was the best buy in the country.
Unfortunately, now is not the time to be choosing law schools based upon bang for your buck.
Not at a place like Alabama, but at schools like HLS, YLS, Stanford, and Michigan you are still getting a very good job when you graduate.
Yeah, I kinda think that's what he meant. None of those would be classified as "bang for your buck."
Are you sure it wasn't just run out of a Best Buy?
that would make you a shoo-in for a Supreme Court clerk.
you can get one out of a box of captain crunch.
But it is only $3 with two UPCs
I would go there, but all the confederate flags are an eyesore.
There are hundreds of confederate battle flags, surely there is one you might like.
Folks down here say : American by birth,southern by the grace of god.
I know, I am just kidding. I'm down here to.
Yeah, I was just meaning these people are intense about everything down here and yes cheating at football is mandatory.
That flag from the front bumper to the sliding rear window.........breathtaking.
my name is Inigo Montoya, you have killed my father, prepare to die.
Disclaimer: was a funny post about Alabama/hillbillies/etc., but too close to political line after some self reflection.
Go ahead and jump off the bandwagon. Don't think you can just jump back on later however.
You consistently have a wonderful sense of humor.
Of course he does. He's from Wyoming.
. . . was to follow the University of Chicago. Abolish division 1 football. Gentlemen should not sully themselves on the gridiron, or at least, only do so against Carnegie-Mellon and MIT.
(In truth, I have no idea who Chicago's opponents are.)
Carnegie Mellon is indeed on the Maroon schedule...
Chicago's town rival was SAIC.
He was a vrigin till he was 28. Roll tide.
I would up vote you if I could. Say what you want about the WWL but they consistently have some damn funny commercials.
You bet you can get a degree there, and it won't take much effort. Party on
Unfortunately it is for immediate family members, cousin, uncles and aunties. Oh yeah and Uncle Jessie impersonators. Right on the corner of Banjo and Fiddle.
excuse me while I go to the latrine ! I about shit me knickers laughing !
Hick-speak and pirate-speak are the same? YAR?
depends on how you define "degree."
[repeat of already mentioned joke about grad school oversigning, with comment that my grad school incoming class at U-M was roughly double the size of traditional classes -- nice fight to the death for advisors]
Can you play football and are rated a 4/5 star prospect by ESPN/RIVALS/SCOUT?
Then no, you should come to Michigan instead.
If you want to get an education, you should come to Michigan
I'm 5'8, 150lbs, and had a 162 LSAT.
As someone who as a degree from Alabama, I can say... eh... nothing that's going to change the minds of anyone around here.
you're making me shit me knickers a second time !
It's a pleasantly neutral state with a pleasantly neutral college in a pleasantly neutral town. Moving on . . .
HA! I hear back from Ross next week. And as bad as I want to go there I'm dreading the next two years of Saturdays. I just submitted my Duke-Fuqua application this afternoon and thought it was too ironic that the Duke is at the top of Men's Basketball again...
Oh, and they have a Coack K Center for Leadership. Why do we not have a similar research center named after Bo? Pretty sure Coach K didn't have to pay to plaster his name all over that school.
Paterno has given millions to Penn State ....
Go Blue !
We're totally doing a signing day thread next week. I got all excited today when I got a mandatory info email today.
Wait for B-School? I didn't get an email. Shoot, don't reply. I don't want to know... I don't need the stress for the next week.
I'm pretty sure I'm going to have to walk on. I don't think the real recruits have to pay $200 for the application fee and spend close to $1k to fly to Ann Arbor for an interview. Plus, I'm pretty sure I'm not getting a full-scholarship :-/
Don't worry about it. It wasn't from admissions at all, it was some newsletter thing that I get about once a month--I just got super excited because I'm over-stressed too.
Seriously though, I'm doing a Ross Round 1 signing day open thread next week. Hopefully I get a committable offer...
It's a great idea! I may not choose to sign the letter of intent too soon, but assuming I have multiple options, I'm going to make a video of me choosing between a bunch of hats on a table and post it on YouTube!
Best of luck to you! I'm hoping it works out for me, but I'm just so nervous about my interview. I didn't do poorly, but it was certainly the fastest 30 (really 25) minutes I've spent interviewing.
