Transfer Worth It?Hi everyone and Merry Christmas Eve, Hypothetical Situation: It's the winter of sophomore year, and I am sitting on a 3.9-4.0 GPA at a top 15 school (Northwestern, JHU, Cornell, etc.). I have done good work and I am president of a few clubs, have done research, and I am actively interested in... 4 years 1 month
Occupy Wall Street = Class Warfare?See: Do you guys think this will turn into a rich vs. poor type of deal? What do these people want from the rich? More importantly: Did these wealthy individuals do something wrong? "what event organizers called a '... 4 years 4 months
US News 2012 RankingsWhat do you guys think of the new 2012 US News rankings? Nothing really changed much, but Chicago certainly seems to be making strong inroads and is doing very well. I am surprised with the huge tie for number 5 (Stanford, MIT, Caltech, Chicago, and Penn). Wash U got pushed back to 14, and... 4 years 4 months

Since there is a hard cap on the amount of currency, there is no way to build in increases in the money supply necessary to account for economic and / or population growth. You will just end up with a bunch of... 2 years 10 months

Still waiting to see anything new from Cupertino. Apple isn't bad, but Google and others seem to be really taking over in the new products / innovation category. 2 years 10 months

However, not much you can do at this point. Hopefully you will get into NYU or Gtown, but if you don't, see if IU or Michigan are still taking applicants. Also Vtech > Drexel in my... 2 years 10 months

It can't hurt and your scores, while not absolutely stellar, are fine (although if you are super anal you could retake).

Don't get me wrong, I love their stuff, but there really is nothing about Apple that makes me think they would see gains like they did in '03-'12. God knows they have the cash to buy a small country though. Google has already... 2 years 11 months

That's my fear with driverless cars (and, to some extent, with the automated cruise control systems that maintain a set distance) - they rely more... 2 years 11 months

Accounts must be at least 120 days past due before being referred to a collection agency, he said." These loans seem like a pittance in the scheme of things. The real... 3 years 12 hours
