No, it's not the offense that gets to me. I'm all for free boards. Its that too many people on that board think #1 they are all knowing gods #2 give bad advice. If anyone asks a question about anything, it probably takes about 3 posts til it becomes a free for all of flaming that isn't constructive. That and when someone asks about a specific school's academics, someone always has to shoot their mouth off at the person calling him a d*pshit. Reading the stuff just makes me feel sorry for the poster and the postee.

And click on the 'map' satellite button on the upper right.
Basically its a web service that google bought thats the same idea as mapquest...cept you can see detailed and zoomed satellite pics in color. Its cool to see what your new campus looks like; if the buildings look pretty, if they are crammed together, if it has huge university quads, if there are mountains nearby, etc. And also lets you check out the neighborhoods. The negative; it isn't complete in rural and some suburban areas of the US, so you can zoom in only to a certain mile by mile size point, but for urban areas, you can basically zoom in close enough to see even cars.
I find it a LOT better than looking at some faceless campus map of mapquest map with no dimensions to catch my asthetic eye. Hope everyone has fun.

I mean...CA is a state of stereotypes and pretentiousness.Glad to se you're keeping the tradition alive and well!
If you read the original poster's query. Not only did cubby want to know about job prospects. But also on what our 'thoughts' about the school were. Cubby, didn't ask "what are the good things about Davis and only the good things only please. And make sure they are relevant to the education and not to unsubstantiated stereotypes random people have". Believe it or not, any thought of greatness or image we have of any school, Davis or Harvard...is stereotypical and pretentious. Cubby asked what thoughts on Davis were. Simple word association would dictate 'Davis = isolated cow tippers'. Ask any other UC student and they would say the same as a joke. I'm just trying to let Cubby in on the know...sorry.

Oh! I can do this. I'm born and raised in CA. Besides driving past Rutgers and Temple once on the freeway visiting colleges back in high school, I don't know sh*t about these schools.
Rutgers- isn't that a state school in a really sh*t area of NJ? The same is really familiar cause it just is, but I still think shanks and crack.
Seton Hall- Heard of it, but don't know sh*t. Don't they have a good basketball team?
Temple- Best of the three. Apparently it's a pretty good school in a sh*t part of Philly. when I drove by one time, there were nothing but cracked out gang bangers on the corners.
