Manny won last night. Any boxing fans on WSO? So Pacman kicked some butt last night in Macau. Granted Rios had no chance given his style, he was still a hard hitter and Manny put to rest the notion that he's done. Now the Manny vs Floyd hoopla has begun again. As much as I like Pac, I think he would lose to Floyd at this point in his... 2 years 4 days

Stern MBA deadlinesStern has 4 deadlines. I've always been under the impression that 1st and 2nd rounds have around the same level of competititon, 3rd round is where it becomes a crap shoot, especially for a middle of the road type of applicant.

Which MBA programs place well in Houston IBI know that UT and Rice are big in Houston but I recently spoke to a Rice student and she told me that Rice only placed 6 students into FT IB this season.

you're 25 and she's 19. I've always felt that're 25 and she's 19. I've always felt that an age difference of 3+ years in your 20's is always too much.

This is besides the point but... 1 year 10 months
