|8 hours 1 min ago||It's a little know fact||
The average life of a fiat currency system (like ours has been since Nixon ended gold convertability in 1971) is 27 years. We are sitting at 44 years as of today.
Sammy, pour me another one.

in developing your financial health. There are specific steps to take with a windfall at each step of the way. It could be emergency fund, or paying off debt, or building retirement and college savings, paying off the house, etc.
One question, do you have an emergency fund? If not, start one. That goes straight into the bank. And just sits there. First, spend a few bucks and get yourself on a Dave Ramsey program or something similar. Those types of programs make it pretty easy to know what to do next, and you won't have to ask MGoStrangers.
|1 day 3 hours ago||Was introduced to Lagunitas' Little Sumpin'||
at the University of Chicago's homecoming last fall. Mighty yummy. And the school sponsored the tailgate. And the Lagunitas brew selection. On campus. At the stadium! They may no longer be the Monsters of the Midway, but dang, they make sure you have a good time.
Oh, yeah, Shiner White Wing tonight.

|3 days 6 hours ago||Oh, Geez||
Arrogance drip acknowledged: Late! Durn, I guess I still haz some unresolved issues about the new East Wing of the B1G, and our being stuffed into it.
I'll go back to just mumbling to myself . . .
|3 days 10 hours ago||Should have ditched PSU when we had the chance||
in the wake of the Paterno/Sandusky scandal. Still bitter those climbers used B1G admittance to legitimize their program and school - which was built on Paterno ego and lies. Then the B1G commish wouldn't have been able to strong-arm the presidents into adding RU and MD by leveraging the prospect of "losing PSU".
Those 3 eastern schools don't fit the picture and have ruined league play in football and basketball. The whole thing is just embarassing.

Harbaugh's a lock for the Raiders
I'll show my self out now.
|5 days 4 hours ago||Kinda all look the same, reminds me of the Brady Bunch movie gag||
Where all of Mr. Brady's architectual designs were variants of his own Brady house.
"The hardest thing about a health club business is getting people to leave their house."

the beginning of the ruinous Russian campaign and march on Moscow.

All will be well in Raider-land.

Let St. Louis have the Jaguars -- they deserve each other. Stupid St. Louis.
|1 week 2 days ago||Heading to the Windy City tomorrow, so||
cleaning out whatever is left over in the beer 'fridge inventory: Blue Moon, Short's, Sprechers'.
|1 week 2 days ago||Zero||
Every new post feeds into my crawler. Booyaah!
And it's not like I'm addicted, I can quit anytime I want. I just don't want.
|1 week 2 days ago||Doh!||
Did I say "first", uh, er, um . . . musta been the margaritas talking.
|1 week 2 days ago||Finally the LA Land Rush is ON!||
Giant market with no NFL. Now the race is officially on between the Rams, Chaaargas, and Raaidaas. Should be fun to watch.
Aaannd the Cardinals should have never left Chicago, IMHO.
|1 week 2 days ago||A quick chat with Harbaugh||
And the 49ers are out. Hello Seattle.
Or Oakland. (queue the haterz)
|1 week 2 days ago||York should get an M Letter jacket now||
And a B1G Championship ring when that happens.
|1 week 3 days ago||To keep this manageable||
I'll go with just events I've seen first-hand. So, from the winter HQ in Bahia Mar, slip #5, here is tonight's Top Five:
5. 1998 NCAA West Regional Michigan defeats N.Dakota 4-3. Bobby Hayes GW @17:06 in the 3rd for the Wolverines on their way to Red's first title.
4. 1974 Unranked MSU defeats #1 (pre-t)OSU in E.L. State scores 13 in the 4thQ to win 16-13. Levi Jackson returns a punt for a TD for Sparty for the win with 3 mins to go, stunning Dr. Strangehayes.
3. 2004 Michigan 45 MSU 37: 3OT (Marv Albert voice) Yesss!
2. 1984 World Series Game 5. Tigers. Word.
1. UTL 1. Gotta love the wheel route. Thank goodness Borges remembered that was uncovered and open when he ran it in the 1st (?) half (Denard just missed the read).
|1 week 3 days ago||Listening to at least one||
of the other voices in my head. Maybe two.
|1 week 3 days ago||Wait, what?||
Jim Harbaugh is the M coach now? What happened to the Raiders?
|1 week 4 days ago||Que es mas mejor?||
Harbaughs, Harbaugh's, or Harbaughs' Roundtable?
|1 week 4 days ago||And we've been terrible at football||
and changed coaches 2x during that Happy-Ferentz-Fun-Time time.
|1 week 4 days ago||Pretty Sweet||
I say, bully for JH, willing to help those boys. Nice touch aannnd, I'm sure this kind of stuff, national reach, respect, cool dudes coming to visit, etc. drives The Sparty nuts.
Don't get all the angst and negativity posts, BTW FWIW.
|1 week 5 days ago||PJ Fleck's next stop?||
His WMU contract will be up about the same time as the sands run out on Ferentz' and his deal. Would be a step up for Fleck, and a bolt of excitement for IA and their Ferentz induced football coma.
|1 week 5 days ago||As a Michigan Full Time MBA Grad||
I'd say most of the comments are on-point, specifically:
- Get your GMAT up to, or as close to 700 as possible
I would recommend you wait until the 2016 entering class cycle. One thing about Ross (and other top-ranked schools) is everything you do is evaluated in terms of your potential to be a high performing student, alum, and business professional. Waiting until this late in the cycle with a low (outside middle 80%) GMAT doesn't show well in terms of planning and execution. Focus on putting your best foot forward, no matter what schools to which you apply
If you can get the GMAT close to, or over 700, it opens up a number of top flight schools. Others you might consider include Booth at UChicago, Kellogg at NU, or even out-of the-box Yale, or UCLA. Those were my pool of applications/acceptances.
Be sure to go visit the admission staff and profs in your target field of each school to which you apply. I found it difficult to talk about why I wanted to attend a specific school in my apps, if I hadn't actually been on campus, met with admissions, profs, and students. That makes a crucial difference in your applications and essays. This may be especially helpful for you if you are fighting the tape some on academics and/or test scores. Plus, most schools track who's been on campus, and how many times, as a way to gauge seriousness of commitment and effort.
If the very top level of school is out of reach academically or financially, don't fret, you'll find that you'll get out of Biz School what you put into it. If you go somewhere else, put your all into it, and you'll be just fine. Indiana and Mich State are two solid programs with friendly acceptance rates and GMATs in your current wheelhouse.
As for changing careers, that's the dirty little secret of graduate business school, well over 2/3rds of the full-time students are job-changers (at least in my class). Engineers who hated being engineers, pre-med who couldn't stand blood or clinical, foreign language types with lots of overseas "work", but no high-value prospects, english majors that didn't want to teach, etc. Not many were consultants or Wall Street types -- that's where they all wanted to go, but couldn't get there without the MBA.
The one amaizing thing about Michigan was every one of my classmates could think: think fast, work fast, integrate disparate concepts, and seemingly remember everything. It was a tremendously fast crowd intellectually. Everybody could learn at a very high rate, no matter their undergrad degree or background.
Don't fret about your work background or undergrad too much, just put together the best self evaluation, application(s) and recommendation letters you can. Put your best foot forward and see what happens, you'll likely be pleasantly surprised.
Best of Luck
