I read the spoiler on wikipedia. How can you not see that coming?
Yes. I absolutely despise most Gen Y tards, with the exception of myself, of course.
"As seen in Figure 4A, across all sports, net revenue from athletics tends to be negative, with the median annual net revenue for Division I-A schools just greater than -$4 million and the 75th percentile just greater than -$1 million." Keep in mind that's D-I. "In our previous reports we found no evidence to establish a pattern, positive or negative between athletic expenditures and academic quality." "Since we would expect any causal relationship between...
I haven't been yet, but I've heard there's a lot of discrimination against East Asians (probably because of labor tension). Any truth to it? Last thing I want to do is piss off a drunk Russian.
Quote: But economists have found it difficult to quantify a link between investing in a high-profile athletic program and reaping presumed benefits, like alumni donations or higher application rates. "If there's any effect, it's a blip: it doesn't persist," said Jonathan Orszag, an economist who has evaluated such issues for the N.C.A.A. Are you seriously going to compare the gaming industry's profits with college sports?

American attitude towards "higher education" these days is a complete joke.
I wouldn't mind working for the Federal Reserve or the US Treasury or some government job. Too bad the pay is complete shit.
Your odds are slim to zero. If you're class of 2012, you'll be doing internship recruiting in Spring 2011 which probably will not look great if the economy stays this tepid. Plus, the location of your school is a huge disadvantage because no one likes to go down South for recruiting with the exception of Duke. Just do a F500 engineering position. About 100x easier to get, pay isn't that shabby, especially if you're living in places where they typically headquarter and...
The first episode was by far the best. The rest of the season is either hit or miss, imo.

My MBA classmates who went into industry are now 30 and making $100-$150k in corporate gigs, plus a 5-10% bonus if they're lucky. And that's just the ones who could find...
