What do you mean by Kaplan program? The class or the book? I haven't taken the class, but I have a good friend who took and and improved his scores by a non-trivial amount. I used books (the big books by Kaplan and Princeton Review, and a couple voculabulary supplements) and did pretty well. If you have trouble motivating yourself, the course is a good idea, since they will keep you on track
Instead of going to lenscrafters or whatever, find a good optical boutique in your area. It will likely cost a little more, but the people who work there will (hopefully) be able to help you find a frame that works for your face
I only spent one night in Portland, but I had one of the best breakfasts of my life at Porthole Restaurant. It a dingy-on-the-outside little spot near the docks. I still lust after the homemade sausage and homefries (they use russets and sweet potatoes). http://www.portholemaine.com/

It's undergoing a multi-year plan (UB 2020) to make it more like the flagships at other states like Minnesota and Michigan. Ive heard Binghamton has a few well-regarded humanities programs, but it does not have a memorable program in science or engineering. Stony Brook has a...

Quote: Originally Posted by RedLantern Not a big difference to my point though. Do you agree with him? Yes. I fail to see where the comparison is insulting. By using the word "akin" he is only relating a few aspects, not insinuating others. It just makes for an attention-getting narrative to make his point.
