GPA doesn't always correlate with intelligence. BioChem majors earn their 3.5's. Some people (me for instance) don't try...

So then what's a biochem major with a 3.9? And now for the really tricky question -- how about one that never did anything, at all?
:-\
a) a good earner

b) a flunkee?

I'm saying that a 3.5 means different things for different majors.

GPA doesn't always correlate with intelligence. BioChem majors earn their 3.5's. Some people (me for instance) don't try... I'm here on scholarship, and hate my major. Thus, I have no problem skipping half of my classes and snagging B's. When I have to borrow over 100k to go to law school, you can bet I won't be missing any classes or putting off any homework. Now if you are a phys ed major who tries VERY VERY hard to earn C's, maybe law school isn't the best idea. On the other hand, half of the top half of the class would be the bottom half of the class if the bottom half of the class wasn't there. ;)

Where should I go next fall? / Re: IU-B vs Case....Wayne?

Indiana - 39.3%
Wayne - 92.5%

I'd say IU has a little more reach than Wayne.

Wayne is a commuter school.  A lot of its students --especially grad students-- are professionals who live in metro Detroit... i.e. they already have jobs.  I don't understand why you insist on comparing apples and oranges.  If you want to practice in Detroit, Wayne is a great choice.  If you don't, it's not.

 ??? That was my first post in this thread, so I'm not really insisting on anything. It may be that Wayne grads choose to stay in-state, but by doing so, they create a smaller alumni network elsewhere and concentrate grads in one region.

A IUB JD is not going to take one any further outside of IN than Wayne would take one out of MI. 


Percent employed in-state:

Indiana - 39.3%
Wayne - 92.5%

I'd say IU has a little more reach than Wayne.

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.
