Woo hoo!  Congrats! Same here. Son got in today. Husband and I both went there. My Grandfather was class of 1927, all four of my siblings went as well. It has been a great day in our house!! Son works hard and knocked the ACT out of the park and is top two in class. Incredibly proud parent moment. Still waiting to hear from more schools, but his heart is in Ann Arbor!

12/13/2018 - 11:13am Totally disagree.  Top 10…

Totally disagree.  Top 10 and top 100 are nowhere near the same. 

12/12/2018 - 7:19am My son did Common App. …

My son did Common App.  There was a section about the parents- where they went to school, what their email was....  Do you remember seeing it when you reviewed her app?  Or ask her if she remembers that.  If you did it, I would definitely call.  You should have the stupid letter.

12/12/2018 - 7:11am Then give them an out if…

Then give them an out if they don't get financial aid.  Not the kid's fault if the parents are successful and don't qualify.

12/12/2018 - 7:00am It freaked me out.  I…

It freaked me out.  I assumed they were already telling me my kid was rejected.  He's worked really hard and I hope it's enough- Michigan resident, 35 ACT, top 2 in class (they release rankings in Jan.).  Of course, I can't help but think it was a note saying my kid is already wait listed.  Happy to hear everyone got it. Fingers crossed.

09/25/2018 - 6:41pm Hi Wendy!  Not sure if you…

Hi Wendy!  Not sure if you check back on this thread ....We are staying at the Hampton Inn Skokie- we were going to leave our car there and take a cab to Ryan Field. (I've never used Uber. Lol)  Are all the places you mentioned within walking distance of Ryan?  Chicago Ave?   Thx.  Also, do you know where the book store is?  Son is applying to NW and we need a T-shirt! (Not if we lose.  We'll all be mad then.)

08/06/2018 - 8:55am Reminds me of when I clerked…

Reminds me of when I clerked for a Judge.  Guy was being arraigned on a PPO violation. (Wife was the respondent)  Judge advised that he change his shirt for the hearing. Shirt read "All stressed out and no one to choke".   You're get what I'm saying here? You think nothing about "Heywood jablome".  Kind of shows your respect level toward women. And now you are saying "every man is assumed guilty". No they aren't.

08/05/2018 - 10:34am Imagine a scandal breaks at…

Imagine a scandal breaks at our beloved school.  Not only do you defend said scandal, but you GO ON A RIVAL'S BLOG TO YELL AT PEOPLE. Just imagine. Personally, I'd be just remaining quiet until it blows over.  Never in a million years would I be yelling at other people to defend someone I've never met.  That's some amazing lack of self awareness.  Always makes me wonder if they are drunk or on drugs.  So weird.  

08/05/2018 - 10:29am I have a request here. You…

I have a request here. You seem to be interested in Title IX and being respectful toward women.  Do you think you could change your trashy user name?  Just please consider it. Thx. 

07/18/2018 - 4:53pm Oh I don't live in NY and…

Oh I don't live in NY and don't know NY prices. Was comparing it to other delis that I know in Michigan. Glad it's cheap to you!

07/18/2018 - 12:56pm Can I @ you if I agree with…

Can I @ you if I agree with you?  Was just there yesterday with my daughter. 2 sandwiches, size small, no drinks. $32!!  Ok sandwich, nothing spectacular. Did I mention $32?

05/24/2018 - 1:34pm spoiler alert:

You guys aren't real peaches to deal with either. 

05/23/2018 - 7:37am I'm going to side with old MSU

on this one.  If he was kicked off the team, you know he did something very, very bad.  It is very hard to be kicked off that team.

05/22/2018 - 7:54am You are all doing it wrong.

I used to do this nightmare every three years. We need 8 yards just to go around the house, 8 yards for the back (it's landscaped so I don't have to look at the Spartan neighbors) 

Last year I ponied up an extra $50 to have A PALLET OF MULCH BAGS delivered. Then you just drop the bags around and open them up.  Took less than half the time. You're welcome.

05/14/2018 - 12:28pm Oh I have no idea

on the party scene. I was just saying there are other good public schools on par with MSU.  Yes, MSU may be slightly better.  But it looks like others are coming up to challenge them.

05/14/2018 - 12:20pm This is interesting.

My son is a junior and has straight A's and a 35 ACT, 1510 Sat.  He has received tons of mail from Michigan (his dream school).  They have invited him to a whole day on campus- it's not sterile or elitist at all, very casual, friendly, address him by name.  He hasn't received one piece of mail from State.  Just interesting seeing different perspectives.

05/14/2018 - 7:47am Average SAT

for MSU for 2017 was 1190. Average SAT for Western is 1140.  So, pretty similar.  I would send a daughter to Western over MSU, sadly. I would be too nervous to send a daughter to State.  What if she goes to a football or basketball player party?

04/29/2018 - 6:33pm Great

Grand fathers. Their Grandparents are probably only in their 60's and 70's. Time flies.

03/16/2018 - 3:21pm Enjoy Club Beau!

My sis and sis in law are nurses in endoscopy. 5th floor? 4th?  Something like that. 

03/16/2018 - 11:49am Agree.

That's weird.  I'm hoping it was only "OMG! I want to strangle her!"  In which case, not nice, but not really a "threat" of violence.  If it's true that a legit threat was thrown out there, then I'm sorry, humanity is done for.  

question: Was it really that bad?  Several on this thread didn't even hear her? I had the game muted.

03/06/2018 - 7:23am Spoiler alert:

We think you are gross as well.  Also it usually happens faster.

03/06/2018 - 7:20am And after you turn that in,

turn in the normal woman card as well.  That show is turrible. No one normal watches it. It's a trainwreck. Watch Hoarders instead. At least you may get some cleaning done. 

02/27/2018 - 7:51am Hmmmm....

Not sure on this one.  My oldest is my smartest- a boy. Just got a 35 on his ACT.  Straight A's and has AP. PSAT was 1410. SAT coming up soon.  But he's not sporty at all.  I mean, loves to watch sports and he's a starter on the golf team, but he's not in "advanced fitness" like any of his friends or on the fball or bball team.  Studying is his thing.  Everyone has their thing.  Just find your kid's.  Could be art, theatre, sports, or yes, academics.  Good luck!

02/21/2018 - 8:17am I'm confused

I'm confused if I should like things because I agree with the statement or because it's an interesting hill to die on.

02/21/2018 - 8:15am Izzo and Dantonio

would never do anything wrong and everyone involved with the ESPN story risked their career with their 100% false story and they just hate MSU.

Just kidding, that's someone else's hill to die on. 

02/16/2018 - 7:42am I'm willing to bet

Tom isn't losing one minute of sleep over this, if his prior behavior is any indication.  Losing a game would bother him. Not this.

01/30/2018 - 3:21pm May I ask

what you do with your tickets if you don't go?  Do you sell them or do they just go unused?  If you sell them, is it face or higher or lower? 


01/24/2018 - 6:49pm Am I the only one

who is disappointed that it took the public reading of graphic victim impact statements for them to do ANYTHING??? 

Great that she is standing up to Lou Ann now, but the victims needed all of these people to do something years ago.  They didn't. 

01/11/2018 - 3:55pm 2007-

2007- Michigan had 27,474 Freshman applications.  In 2016- 55,000 applications.  So I assume they can be super picky. 

01/11/2018 - 10:58am Love Michigan sports?

Love to study??  Sounds like you and my son (also applying next year) would be fast friends.  I'll have him keep his eyes peeled for "Orlando2".  (If you both get in. Michigan is so much more tougher these days!  Good luck!!)

01/02/2018 - 1:11pm Dear Lord.

I used "triggered" to mean mad. I have no idea what your beef is with me. Happy New year.

01/02/2018 - 11:30am (I actually didn't)

(I actually didn't). Were we really that confident??? I should have known I guess. Then I get why a lot of people are MAD. I'm an old woman who has had season tickets for 28 years, so my confidence level for every game is extremely low.

01/02/2018 - 11:23am I do also wonder

What percentage of the EXTREMELY ANGRY people were drunk posting yesterday. It was a "holiday".

01/02/2018 - 11:19am Sorry.

Sorry to offend.

01/02/2018 - 10:49am Calm down.

Calm down. It's just a word, friend.

01/02/2018 - 10:43am Seriously???

We never beat a team with a winning record! "Every person" on here thought it would be a scrimmage? Guess I found the problem.

01/02/2018 - 10:32am I'm sure you have!

It's one of my fave words! I switched from Mgoblog to Twitter, but I hate those weirdos, so I'm back. I think I'll take up knitting next. Or get a pet.

01/02/2018 - 10:22am Also

Didn't have to waste your time or money on an old book. Win/win.

01/02/2018 - 10:13am Amen.

I'm with you. Sorry people are triggered, but come on. Did people think the o line would magically improve? Did people think our problems would just go away and we'd beat an 8-4 team with our third string QB? We were LAST in all of FB in turnover margin. Last. It's actually surprising we won 8 games. High expectations are bound to disappoint. We were what we were last year, but no one wanted to see it.

01/01/2018 - 9:05pm I was totally thinking

It was way better than Twitter. At least the buckeyes and sparkys aren't here. I couldn't deal with them today. It's a New Year. So I'm back with you clowns until I get bored again.

01/01/2018 - 7:56pm You can't put this

On the fans. It's not easy to cheer your ass off when there's nothing to cheer for. I wasn't there today, but I sat through another 5 turnover game this year. Brutal.

01/01/2018 - 7:33pm So true.

Simple. And I promise to only post every 2nd Tuesday of each month when this happens.

01/01/2018 - 7:13pm I mean,

At this point, that's all we have to go with. It's our only hope. But as far as those other guys, football is funny.

How did State go 3-9 last year with a bunch of veterans??? How did Iowa hang 55 on OSU??? College football, man.

01/01/2018 - 7:03pm Post a win/loss scenario

For next year and we'll let you know what happened to old Orlando if you're right.

01/01/2018 - 6:57pm Weird...

I was considering coming back to the board because the Twitter folk are annoying me. But I don't have any win/lose scenario for this.

01/01/2018 - 4:34pm agree.

agree.  I know the play book and I'm a grown ass woman. Burn the play book. 

05/28/2017 - 9:31am Not a cat person,

don't have allergies, have never owned a dog.

05/18/2017 - 12:14pm Gross.


05/02/2017 - 7:24am THE Hooked on Phonics?

THE Hooked on Phonics?

04/12/2017 - 10:48am Great case for trial-

If it truly is he said/she said- you take that garbage to trial every day. Great for reasonable doubt. Probably his choice to take it to trial because the plea offer is no good and if he truly believes he's not guilty, why take a plea and ruin your record?
