i will do this. appreciate the advice.

just curious, what type of questions would you ask in an informational interview when you already know you want to go to the school?

Transferring / Re: transferring from T3 to Denver (T2)

thanks for the info!

operating under the assumption that most T3s have fairly harsh grading curves, i'm going to guess that's about 25th %ile....

what %ile would be required for this to be a safe bet?

in a couple weeks i'll be within a short drive of a school where i'm waitlisted and i'm thinking about stopping by to introduce myself. i just have no idea what i would say... anyone have any thoughts?

yeah, the US news editor was on msnbc yesterday and i wanted to reach through the screen and punch him in the face as he was bragging about how popular their "special issues" were. their "rankings" (and our adherence to them) have turned the admissions process into a game of manipulation...

i'm only on one, but according to LSN, that school has issued more waitlists than rejections, and nearly as many waitlists as acceptances. anyone else thing this is kinda ridiculous?

let me put it this way, it was between idaho and willamette (with no money). i think i would love oregon but i wasn't comfortable with the academic environment and high attrition rate at willamette.

Pete - do you curently live in Idaho?  If not, you are in for a BIG shock.  It would have been my cheapest option since I am a resident, but for me quality of life far outranks how good the school might be.  Good luck in the arctic circle of hell aka Idaho!

i don't live in idaho, but it is my cheapest option ($$) and i have a thing for cold weather and outdoor sports. beyond that, the fewer the distractions, the better for me academically speaking. and i could totally see myself living in boise for a few years afterwards...

I just told you what other groups we discriminate against.

We can't define marriage as a union of one man and one woman because we have to include same-sex marriages.  Well what about polygamists?  What if they claim that they were born that way? 
I don't see any real difference if those polygamists are all willing and of age.

my bad, i was skimming. i think the idea is that we "discriminate" against some practices because they directly (human sacrifice, female circumsion) or indirectly (polygamy- this one is a little more of a reach. i think what went on recently in texas was an egregious example of the government overstepping its bounds) violate the rights of others. to make an argument that two gays or lesbians getting married violates anyone else in any legal sense is, well, silly.

now, if you'll excuse me, it's friday and i must get my drink on...
