while i hate dells, i've been using them since 2001 since both college and grad school had dell support on campus. and while dell does suck, i've always been a fan of their support, in person at least (i know, of course, that the support personnel at these places are students). don't know if other manufacturers' plans cover as much or as well, but i've definitely gotten much more than my money's worth, it seems. and when in school, getting fast, direct, personal service is...

I ask because ill-fitted shoes will deteriorate faster. what shoe brands are you wearing? Haven't noticed any fast weardown--but then again, I've never had anyone's feet but my own, and I don't really pay attention to the lifespan of friends' shoes. Because of flat feet though, I do have some issues with pronation...
By length, i should be a 10 (maybe even a 9.5), but I got pretty wide feet. Sometimes, I'm lucky enough to find wide shoes, but usually, I just make do with 10.5s and 11s. The problem, of course, is that while the feet are very wide up front, they're normal-sized near the heels, so I'm always slipping out of my shoes. And this has been going on for so long that it's actually become "comfortable" for me. Also doesn't help that I got flat feet and usually need...
Depends on where you're going to school, but having spent 7 years in non-urban schools, I'd say whatever brand that has on-site service on campus.

If through an academic path, major in math/applied math/economics and try to get internships with teams that employ a lot of quantitative analysis. I've known a couple MIT kids who've worked for major sports teams. You can also do marketing and things like that, work for the business operation side, and try to transfer over. Another way would be to go to a top law school and work for firms that do a lot of work with sports leagues and sports teams (Proskauer Rose and...

Also, if the said person graduated from a "prestigious" university, he could make a lot more (under the table, on the side, etc) by teaching SSAT/SAT/GRE/GMAT and revising admissions essays. $10k/month during the summer is not unheard of.
