Undergraduate: Wisconsin, UCSB, Indiana, or...You are certainly correct that Kelley is largely an accounting school. However, the poster is going into school knowing he wants to do investment banking.

The Official 'Albums to listen to before you...Never listened to those three bands. Yeah, by "prefer," I meant that I pretty much avoid prog with vocals entirely. The vocal tones typically found in prog sound corny to me. For prog and metal, I find that the vocals distract from the talent going on instrumentally, too. Anubis Gate... 1 year 1 month
The Official 'Albums to listen to before you...AAL has been my favorite band since Tosin and Misha created the debut album. I've been listening to The Joy of Motion daily since I got the leak.
