Forgive me if I misunderstand your question...but rank is determined accordingly:

Person with highest GPA is ranked #1
Person with next-highest GPA is ranked #2, and so on...

Being from Steeler-country, you can at least count on being ranked ahead of any and all aggies...but other than that, I can't make any promises....

Very funny.


Tech does have a hard curve!  I thought it would be curved a little higher than that.  It sounds very similar to Baylor's median which may be lower.

Does anyone happen to know what the median GPA is at Tech law?  Or at least where I can find it?

Great story, Texas1. I agree that "ATM" should consider a new emblem -- it always confused me as a kid...

A&M has been trying to "create" a new emblem.  Actually, they already created it, they are just trying to make it catch on.  We call it the "T Star."  Personally, I like the T Star better than the ATM, but when it comes to change, Aggies as a whole tend to dig their heels in and say "No way!  The old way is better b/c thats how its always been!"

I'll try and get some T star stuff (do my part!), but I hate it when ppl ask what it is.




What would I do without this thread?  Probably forget all about immunization forms/alc. classes and get kicked out of law school.

Yeah, I feel kinda out of the loop on the Soonpaa email.  I have a confession to make:  I haven't checked my Tech email account since June.  I forgot my password to access the account and I can't get into TechSIS either.  I just haven't taken the time to fix it.  I guess I should get on that.

Gotta lil' story for ya Ags!  (er...sorry...habit)

So, I just got back from NYC yesterday...flew AA!  And you guessed it, something went wrong.  The 'wheels up time' for the plane was pushed back an hour, meaning we boarded and left the gate, but couldn't take off for an hour.  This is leaving Dallas by the way.  So, they herd us onto the plane, and to conserve fuel, they proceed to turn off the A/C!!!  We were sitting on the tarmac for an hour in the blazing sun (temps that day were around 107).  I needed a shower after the plane ride! 

Moral of the story...fly SW...ticker symbol - LUV.

I'm reading Texas by Michener right now...and I'm only halfway through it!  It does a great job of portraying the Texican/Texian/Texan Spirit (it better!  Its only 1000 pages!).  But I also think we need to keep in mind that Jul's pride in Pitt is something unknown to us.  I don't think the two can be compared, and if they can, only Julianne can compare them.  I hope that you can appreciate why we love Texas so much and are so willing to be type cast as arrogant, egotistical, braggarts...about our state. 

I haven't lived outside of Texas much, but in my short time "outside" I ran into a few Texas-haters...one above all.  That just reinforced the need to be openminded about other people's views (especially one as dear as a person's heritage).

GU - here's the low down on the Texas Twang. 

Draw out all vowels, especially, e, i, a.
Drop the last hard consonant of most words, actually drop most hard consonants, where ever they are!
The more you can articulate with the back of your tongue, the better.
Never pronounce the G on -ing words.

If there is a faster way to say a word or a combo of words, thats how we say it...only slower.

Trust me, we will rub off on you...just like you picked up little sayings from you friends you will acquire a Twang...that should be interesting mixed with your Pittsburgh-ese. 

And as a test, you can compare my accent to West's, to someone from East Texas...cause there is a difference!
