This is a sports blog so that's why I OT'd it

Did the credits just end up going to actual major requirements or did they just end up as elective credit?
|12 weeks 17 hours ago||Holy crap you read my mind.||
Holy crap you predicted what I would think before I thought it. Come to think of it, yeah, I had a friend that took Calc 3 at UMich and ended up going to Northwestern. I mean, NU is no Stanford but it's still pretty cool.
EDIT: Bad way to word that, more like you considered something that I hadn't before and might be a big factor...

Why wouldn't multivariable calc count as credits?

It's going to be during the school year. No worries, I'll be doing something "different" for those admissions people during the summer.

I'm in Calc BC at my high school which is Calc I&II

No, I would be a senior taking the class. I am taking the Calculus BC exam in like a week...but the score won't have an influence on whether I can dual enroll or not unless I completely bomb it, which I am confident I won't do.

Was Shaq at least fined or suspended for what he said about Yao? And did he give an apology? I was a pretty big fan of his but now honestly I'm pretty disgusted after finding all this out...

Certain schools don't need the athletics marketing boost (like the Ivy League) but I'm convinced that Northwestern does. For example, Duke is a school that gets a higher quality of student simply because its basketball team wins a lot. Before, it was a pretty good school, but now people consider it on par, or better than, the non-Yale, Harvard, Princeton Ivy League. Our own school, Michigan, almost certainly gets a boost from the visibility the athletic program brings.
tl;dr: Michigan=Northwestern=Duke, Ivy League=Ivy League. Northwestern gets a boost in student quality from athletics.

I'd say that the crowd here at mgoblog is a lot tamer than the weirdos that tweet recruits. Most of us don't do the creepy things you mention so let's change "so many of you suck" to "a few of you suck".
|16 weeks 6 days ago||Eh, I think the difference in||
Eh, I think the difference in academic strength between UM and MSU is a decently large difference. The difference is big enough and apparent enough that any lifelong MSU fan I've met will tell you that, given the choice, they would go to UM every single time.
Of course, the education probably isn't that different, but the perception of the abilities of the students coming out of the two is substantially different.

Is he going to be a Ross Preferred Admit? That sounds awesome! Best of luck to him trying to balance the business school and football!
|17 weeks 1 day ago||Well, most of this thread is||
Well, most of this thread is pretty political. It's just that the political things everyone is saying on this thread are generally accepted. But yeah, I guess I shouldn't have posted. I wish I could delete my post right now because I don't want to have to live in Bolivia. Please forgive me for saying something offensive...I actually thought what I said was consensus. I would argue with you but this is a sports forum and I apologize. Bye and Go Blue!
|17 weeks 1 day ago||Your tone sounds a little||
Your tone sounds a little hostile to those who criticized the military in those days, and so I just want to clear something up. Those protestors in North Hall are not the villains. The villains were those who sent us to war and instituted a draft in order to fight a contrived Communist threat.
It also sounds a little condescending to those who do not choose to serve today. Maybe those 20 somethings disagree with the goals of the military and what today's leaders want to use them for. Maybe those 20 somethings want to do something that they feel is more fulfilling.
Of course, if you didn't imply those things, then I apologize for going off on you. Whenever I think I sense jingoism I see red...

It feels like because the refs don't want to seem biased by calling lots of fouls for the other team and few for the other team, they are reluctant to call the mugging that Texas is doing right now. This is all despite the fact that everyone knows we don't foul so there's no need to "balance" the calls to make the refereeing fair...

Minor gripe: the soundtrack you used from Inception was meant to be a happy ending song. Maybe should have used the song from Batman Begins that plays when Bruce falls into the well and his dad goes and rescues him... "Why do we fall Bruce? So we can learn to pick ourselves back up."
