Incoming 1Ls / Re: What do people think of Toshiba Laptops???
« on: May 30, 2006, 08:47:05 AM »
The same thing happened to my Toshiba... AC adaptor plug got detatched. Unless you're looking to buy one of the good models, stay away from Toshiba.

A CPA friend, another CFP friend and I want to open a comprehensive financial/estate planning business one day.

Just so you know, about half of the graduating classes at IU-B get jobs out of state, so most of the people don't end up in Indianapolis.

This brings up an interesting point: who ranks the rankings systems? Why is US News always regarded as being the best of the best, the final authority on rankings?

Harvard should just buy US News & WR.

Yale already has.

I only applied to IUB because they gave me a fee waiver.

From what I have read & heard, the T14 are clearly "National". Then the T15-30 are "Semi-National", and from there on down schools are primarily "Regional". After T75 employment prospects really begin to dwindle for the average graduate.

That's probably a pretty good rule of thumb.  There are internal differences even there, e.g. HYS vs. Northwestern/Duke/Cornell.  Texas and Vanderbilt are probably more national than Emory, George Washington, Notre Dame, etc.  And with the USNWR rankings some schools are overvalued in terms of placement ability (Minnesota, Iowa) and some are undervalued (Hastings, Tulane), but your sort of tier system largely removes this problem.

I don't see how Hasting and Tulane's placement values are so great when compared to Minnesota and Iowa.  The later 2 schools are clearly superior to the first 2, not to mention they are clearly more national, which is the topic of this thread.

Unfortunately, the topic of his post wasn't comparison. He didn't compare Iowa and Minnesota to Hastings and Tulane... he just said the first two were overvalued and the later two were undervalued.

I don't know, but an A at Hillman is an A anywhere.

I would imagine day classes and night classes are taught in the same way... Often, the same teacher will teach both.

That's true... still, it is pretty weak, kind of like quitting right before you get fired or preempting a breakup just for some ?pride? reasons. IDK

Visits, Admit Days, and Open Houses / Fordham is sneaky

A month ago, I withdrew from Fordham after being deferred. Then, a couple of days ago, I get a letter saying that I've been rejected from Fordham... come on guys, trying to make your acceptance rate a little lower is one thing, but rejecting an application that isn't even *valid* anymore is another. :D
