|6 days 3 hours ago||Good start but wrong stat||
Your conclusion (na gonna happen) is fine but I don't think we want the chance of a particular given person choosing correctly (147.57 quintillion) but of SOME person doing so - the chance of the event happening at all.
We've got 11.57 million tickets to the "perfect bracket" lottery on ESPN alone. So one way of calculating the chance of someone getting a perfect bracket on ESPN are presumably .....ohf*ck someone else calculate it for me.
But this is still not right, because we are not picking a truly random event. It would only be the right calculation if Kentucky vs. Hampton etc had a 50/50 outcome.
Imagine I, a middle-aged college professor with a negative vertical leap, were playing a competitive game of HORSE v. Trey Burke. And yall were betting on it. Lots of people would win that one, not just 50%, because the outcome would not be a random event. Now imagine Trey Burke is playing vs. 63 middle-aged professors in a bracket. The probability of a winning bracket existingn would not be 1 out of 147.57 quintillion.

This makes me feel old.
Good advice, though!

They are reasonably wise to material being passed among applicants. There's software for that kind of thing
|1 week 2 days ago||Dartmouth was down 1 with 2.5||
Dartmouth was down 1 with 2.5 seconds and did this to Yale 10 days ago and won the game. This shot is responsible for Harvard's appearance in the NCAA because it meant Yale was forced into a playoff game at Harvard (which Yale also lost at the last second).

I interviewed him for another school and he was smart as heck and very affable. Best of luck to him!!
|1 week 5 days ago||Wait aren't we the pot here?||
Do y'all think that the standards for athletes at UM are as high as for the rest of us? Really? If not step back on the "this is sleazy" argument
|1 week 5 days ago||Say why?||
Actually curious about this as I have never heard it before
|1 week 5 days ago||He also has a winning record in the Ivies for a reason||
He is a much better fit where he is, just like afar is a better fit in his current position.
|1 week 5 days ago||Harvard is not going to the NIT bro||
They just beat Yale and will be dancing.
|1 week 6 days ago||Wait who has a B plus curve||
Really I want to know. This is certainly not the case in any other b school program
|1 week 6 days ago||Hey remember||
Most (!) if the people in the BBA program are NOT preadmits. I am going to teach in that program next year (a class for sophomores) so buckle up in math and Econ and I'll see you in two years. Good luck

|2 weeks 4 days ago||Excellent summary!||
I have taught throughout Ross's *except* in EMBA and appreciate the detailed response.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||HRACE||
I have no idea what autocorrect thought it was doing there. Sorry guys the actual word was "heave"
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Ok what about Ivies||
So thankfully the Yale Bulldogs were defeated last night by a full court HRACE and buzzer beater by Dartmouth. This means Harvard and Yale are tied at the top of the league and must play a tiebreaker game next Saturday. The winner dances, but my question to y'all is
|4 weeks 1 day ago||Perfect combo||
David's wife Nic runs those events and I can attest that she is pretty much a human ray of sunshine. Or comes as close as anyone I know :)
It's a little hard to imagine this crowd without a beer in our collective hands but when the sports season winds down I am definitely giving Brillig a try.

My ads are for saddles and knitting equipment. You do know each of us sees ads based on our browsing history right?
|5 weeks 2 days ago||I also live in Detroit||
(Part-Time) and I will miss when Detroit FC moves!!
|5 weeks 3 days ago||I get why you prefer full-time||
But if you don't get into the full-time program, it is something to consider. I'm pretty sure it's easier to get in :) although the program is quite strong.
You could actually get some part-time work instead of your current job, if that will sustain you, and you still wouldn't need to relocate.
|5 weeks 3 days ago||Well that works if you just go to network||
If you actually learn anything while you're at school, that has a separate effect on your employability relative to the networking factor.
And you don't seem to have suffered for lack of networking abilities yourself.
|5 weeks 4 days ago||If it doesn't come to pass||
Consider our weekend MBA program - every other weekend for two years. If you are not an epic distance away from A2 this is a workable alternative to full time, providing your current job is not too miserable to endure through that period.

Dear god please do not let this man reproduce.

If that happens to you, you should definitely see a doctor.
|6 weeks 2 days ago||Be careful||
A lot of child tuition benefits have disappeared over the last generation. There's non at UM so far as I know. Have a plan B
|6 weeks 2 days ago||I am a fan of altering loan payment schemes||
One possibility that has been suggested is putting a cap on loan payments of day 10% I come with forgiveness after a certain number of years.
|6 weeks 2 days ago||Yes and||
As an earlier poster points out, many perfectly white-bread schools in Michigan have similar four-year rates - EMU for example
