You have an easier time, all things being equal, of getting in from a school with a better academic reputation.

or being forced out by Germany. Germany, ECB and IMF will not allow for a reduction in debt.
|2 days 8 hours ago||It's a crime||
$50K of property damage is quite a serious crime.
Those responsible should be punished. Because they committed a crime.
Since they associated with my alma mater, I truly hope they are prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law BECAUSE THEY BROKE THE LAW. Also, to prevent further episodes like this in the future.

In Howard County. Took a nice 30 minute walk with the wife and dog. Pretty snow, not much acumulation.

"I think the educational system and the cultural stereotypes perpetuated by Disney and other Hollywood TV networks "that being smart is not cool" have failed the students most at risk immensely."
Um...did not know that Disney's primary target audience are inner-city minority students (ie at-risk students). I guess if you are including Disney's ESPN division promoting sports (with the 1 in a million odds of being a pro basketball player), you would be somewhat correct.
But one can make the argument that being the product of broken homes, no positive male role models, poverty, drugs & gang-bang cultures lionized by rap or 'narco' groups play a much more significant role than Olaf from Frozen.
And there have been craploads of literature demonstrating why Asians, when you control for SES, outperform other minorities. Asians are more likely to come from 2-parent households, with tons of parental involvement (doing homework with the kids every night) in regards to education (school comes first, EVERYTHING (sports, extracurriculars, friends, dating, TV comes second)).

ie I am old and before Gratz. v. Bollinger (point system for admissions), which high school you went to very much played a role in admissions policy. Bloomfield Hills, Birmingham, and Cranbrook applicants received a bump.
I'm sure some of the "feeder schools" with a track record of academic excellence and matriculants who succeed at Michigan still play a role in the admissions process. IE B.H. International Academy grad all things being equal would be admitted over a B.H. Consolidated grad

More room for Iman.

Deutschland, Deutschland Uber Alles!
Still think the obliteration of Brazil @ home by Germany in the WC semis was the most complete butt-kicking I have seen in any sport. Would have been 8-0 if not for a lazy-ass Ozil.

i lived through Snowpocalypse I in the DMV 5 years ago. 24" of snow was quite enough, thanks.

near my work had this on tap.
So pissed that it was out by the time I got there.
Of course, 64 oz of 120 minute would = me unconscious. My wife detests 120 (she is more of a Marzen-less hoppy/ABV girl).
Am on my 3rd Laphroaig 18. All the smoky peat, smooth as butter. May buy another bottle tomorrow.

|1 week 1 day ago||IBD||
For physicians/medical people, IBD is the acronym for Irritable Bowel Disease
And yes, I snicker whenever someone uses IBD in a post.

But yeah, that's about it.

Don't fraternities/sororities have to get University approval to operate on campus? So aren't they school-sanctioned clubs and thus representatives of the school?
Drunken student hijinks are one thing, but 50K in damage to private property is serious shit.
They deserve all the legal, criminal, and school-related penalties coming at them.
|1 week 2 days ago||Yeah||
The real estate market contributed.
I spent a crapton of money at Midtown Cafe (near the financial advisor/new watch store near the theatre on Old Woodward). The owners of the building sold it.

For a more formal dining experience.
Sad that some of my old hangouts have closed, however. Still enjoy walking the dog downtown Birmingham when we visit my folks.

I'm an MGoDoctor too, and am a few Latin credits away from a 3rd major in Classical Archaeology.
I'm not negging you for not knowing about a video game, I'm negging your attitude such as "Defending ignorance makes you look bad."
YOU are the guy who did not get the original photoshop reference, and got pissy about the explanation.

Wilson eventually took his head out of his butt. That deep ball on 3rd and long was a perfect pass.

George Washington, not George the 3rd.
It's a "what if" game, if Washington does not give up his commission to the Continental Congress in Annapolis but rather took control and established a monarchy.

Still pretty funny

Chop House Annapolis (@ Town Center) is fantastic.
Wife with the filet, me with a rare bone-in ribeye.
As good as the Ruth's Chris.
