this is why nepotism fails. the father you get from the ruler who was actually successful, the more the gene pool fails you. start from scratch.
|1 year 44 weeks ago||And now...||
I am at the jug. Life is good.
|2 years 1 week ago||I have no idea why this is.||
For some reason, it seems like people (including Ace) are thinking Clemson now.
|2 years 1 week ago||He has already grown.||

|2 years 2 weeks ago||Fair enough.||
I know you weren't taking a shot at me. I just know that Kaplan spends more money on research than the other big brands of test prep. That's why I really like their practice tests. When I took the MCAT, I felt like I had seen all the questions already. I actually never went to med school when all was said and done. I just did really well on that test and I liked Kaplan's style. It worked for me.
|2 years 2 weeks ago||Ummm....||
Kaplan has way better practice tests. Princeton focuses way too much on content and way too little on actual test prep. If you don't know the material well at all, I'd go Princetone. If you're fairly good to start with, go Kaplan.
|2 years 2 weeks ago||Well I was planning on||
Well I was planning on graduating in 3 years. At the time they only offered 2 MCAT's a year, and the scores casm slowly. Doing that allowed me to have my scores in plenty of time to start looking for schools in the winter of what was essentially my junior year. It gave me an advantage. Also I had just taken Orgo, and AP Bio and AP Chem as a senior in high school. I took the first half of physics that spring and taught myself the second half over the summer. All the topics were fresh. Another year wasn't really going to give me a lot.
|2 years 2 weeks ago||Alright...I'm not one to do this.||
I hate to be a brag, but I'm going to brag. I got a 38 when I took the MCAT after my freshman year at UofM. The way I did this, aside from knowing my shit, was by taking the Kaplan MCAT course. I recommend highly as I was also an MCAT teacher for a while for Kaplan. They are the best by some margin.
My main piece of advice other than using Kaplan is that you should always look at the answers. By that I mean that whenever you get something wrong (and ideally for every question), you should look at the reasoning blurb they give for the question. You need to learn to think like the test writers. Focus on taking practice tests...short and full length. Then focus on reading the answer blurbs.
Advice and brag over.
WolvinLA can vouch for all of this.
|2 years 2 weeks ago||Good.||
I'm happy to see that this got sufficiently shot down.
|2 years 2 weeks ago||This seems....not right.||
I don't think the world would function very well if all everybody was doing was "making" things. There are other required functions. Furthermore, most of the things mentioned in that article that you could "make" are internet-related. I'm not sure everybody having a blog or a youtube channel is all that sustainable. Is there a future where we can all just read each other's blogs?
|2 years 5 weeks ago||it's gus time||
|2 years 5 weeks ago||I am enthusiastic.||
Call me maybe.
|2 years 5 weeks ago||Again?||
Every damn peppers thread you say this.
|2 years 7 weeks ago||Personal tradition tonight.||
I call it trashy nerd night. I purchase few 40's of something trashy (by common definition although I cast no judgement) and a pack of smokes. Then I watch lectures/discussions/debates on YouTube.
Tonight: 2 40's of Mickey's and this lecture will be the primary feature: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1OLz6uUuMp8
|2 years 7 weeks ago||It's like cricket.||
This game will go on for days.
|2 years 7 weeks ago||Michigan wins||
5-0. Advanced to tomorros game without giving up an out for the weekend yet.
|2 years 7 weeks ago||Welcome.||
I do not think it is. The other semi was not televised.
|2 years 7 weeks ago||Apparently it's just you and me watching this bud.||
Should be noted that errors have really hurt Cal. Especially early on.
|2 years 7 weeks ago||Yes||
no walks, one hit now. broadcast team on ESPN 3 jinxed it right before she gave up the hit.
|2 years 7 weeks ago||While we're at it...||
*walks under ladder, spills salt, breaks mirror, and toasts with water while getting passed by a black cat*
|2 years 7 weeks ago||For the record, I think all||
For the record, I think all these measureables are skewed so our class really is tall and awesome because you can only compare the numbers to other numbers that are equally biased...and they compare favorably. I'm not trolling people. I'm mostly making fun of myself for being slow.
|2 years 7 weeks ago||Indeed.||
I still feel like all these measurables get exaggerated. If i was a recruit I would be listed at 6'4''...with a 40 time of 5.8 (trust me that is the exaggerated version).
|2 years 7 weeks ago||The only thing I'm missing...||
is the home state of each of the recruits. This is just a quibble because I think it's awesome that you did this. I'm just a curious type, and I am interested to know if these schools recruit mostly locally or not. I imagine Hawaii has weird recruiting so I'm off to the databases to look at that. Well done, sir.
|2 years 7 weeks ago||Well...||
Norway is stupid.
|2 years 7 weeks ago||You keep bringing this up.||
This is like the fourth time I've heard you say this. Being different doesn't mean you're just out to troll people and do the opposite of what everyone thinks. If that were really true, he wouldn't be going to another school to play football, he weould be moving to Norway to become an olympic ski jumper. I think you're just calling this kid a troll. While it may be true, there is just zero evidence for this at this point.

You'll be SHOCKED to learn that ND thinks they have him.
|2 years 9 weeks ago||A guess?||
You stayed a Holiday Inn Express last night.
|2 years 9 weeks ago||Yup.||
|2 years 9 weeks ago||My goal.||
'95 Stamos or '13 Stamos? This is important.
