Haha. Me? I guess it is a subtle flame of Tom Brady; which wasn't my intent. But I'm happy with my unintended flame, my QB hero is much cooler than that feminine product anyway.

Where should I go next fall? / Re: Thoughts on Iowa and Minnesota?
« on: December 10, 2007, 11:12:13 PM »
This thread really hits close for me too. I'm a Wisconsin resident so I get in-state tuition too, which makes Minnesota a really appealing choice. I think that a lot of the seemingly sub-standard (salary) numbers for MN are due mainly to self selection. Most people choose to go to MN for personal reasons (family, friends in the art world, etc.) and firms are generally aware of this; so they consequently pay less because they know people want to be there. Large Twin Cities firms, by an large, don't have to compete with large Chicago firms; giving another reason that salaries are slightly lower. As a counter example, in Milwaukee (my hometown) the larger firms have to compete with Chicago firms (due to proximity) and salaries are consequently higher.

As for the school itself. I absolutely loved the school when I visited last year. The students all seemed like they had their sh*t together and the faculty was top notch. I was admitted last year, but they didn't defer my acceptance (I moved to China for a year) but told me to reapply. I'm still waiting to hear from them (again) and I while I'm happy with my decision; I do kick myself from time to time for not going to Minnesota this year. I just hope they accept me again.

As for Iowa... they waitlisted me... so I was pissed about that and consequently have an irrationally low opinion of them.

-3.14 for your pacifism.


PS
I'm actually quite harmless. My raging against the machine typically consists of voting for libertarian candidates that always lose.

I never noticed that your cute little bear has a set of Olympic rings on him. So 10/10 for the awesomely deceptive bear. And 10/10 for being a civil libertarian.

poor trizkutt.  why don't you get into an actually presitigious undergrad?  wisco is great, but not prestigious by any means.

tttriscuit is what happens when you have to transfer into your top choice undergrad.  The one or two years he spent at UW-platsville, or wherever, seems to have seriously F-ed with his mind/self-confidence/ability to subtly flame. 

Not fair to transfers.  My ex-girlfriend got accepted to Madison, but was scared of the city and went to another UW, she then transferred to Madison after a year.  I transferred to Madison because coming out of high school I thought I wanted to go to a Liberal Arts College (HA!) and never even applied (would have gotten in).  It's definitely too easy to transfer from UW System schools, but just don't judge all transfers by this guy.  We weren't all jealous strivers determined to get into a school we think is so incredible that we go around to message boards trying to convince people it's better than Michigan, Virginia, and Berkeley.

I'm curious to know what she was scared of? I mean it can be a little intimidating with the size. Was it the atmosphere? Ie too wild for her?

8.5/10 for the distinguished look.

0/10 for myself because I had to google wallace stevens and I was an english major.

This is not surprising at all.  Most of the people I have met who come from Wisconsin are arrogant, self-basking twits.  There is a very high probability that the OP's mother is extremely overweight, and his father is an alcoholic.  I understand that growing up in an environment like this may create personal struggles that most of us do not understand.  None the less, the OP was corn-bred in a state that has really nothing to offer.  He feels insecure about it, and we're left to read his disconnected rants about a non-existent and completely figment conference known as the "Public Ivy."  The OP has degraded himself, Wisconsin, and this Board with his useless rants and insults.  I hope he emanates   his true self when he begins writing his Candidate Statements and that he gets admitted to exactly where he deserves to be admitted...nowhere. 

Flame On!

Don't hate on Wisconsin. Nobody appreciates extremely stereotyped portrayals of their state/home. I'm sure you wouldn't like it if I said that kind of sh*t about where you're from.


Hey prick, fyi my dad is a prof at Duke Medical school which makes me, by proxy, >>>>>>> you.  Have fun trying to get admitted into Hawvaad with that 166/3.11
Trizkutt must have had a terrible LSAT, as the logical fallacy that because your father was smart/intelligent/successful that you are therefore to be considered >>>>> someone else is outrageous.
