    Interesting. My mentor and her husband are PhD grads from UW-M as well. I thought you might have known them, but they both got their degrees in the sciences: one in molecular microbiology; the other in computer science. They met as students, got married, and became faculty there before moving over to my side of the country.

    Holy crapsticks. I think we've finally hit on a way to use sarcasm for good!

    It was a bit of work, but the snarky snark snarkerson factor made it deeeeeliiicccccioussssss to create. I'm getting better at these kinds of posts, they're kind of like how to make sarcasm effective.

    In my humble opinion science is just the process of discovering how God did it... *smile* {{{{ym}}}}

    What if the test is to learn how much grace you can accept? {{{{ym}}}}

    Still a crazy number. I remember Catholic school in the 80's... out of 30 kids, there was ONE heavy kid. That is roughly a 4% obesity rate... which is more in line with where it ought to be brought back to again, IMO.

    Honestly, no, I did not like where I went to college. It's not a bad school by any means; it just wasn't a good fit for me personality-wise. I didn't like it from the beginning, but my mom loved it. She loved it even more when I got a scholarship covering 75% of my tuition (I distinctly remembering her laughing happily and saying, "if you get the full scholarship, you are going there!" She dismissed all my statements about how I didn't like the school, saying I was just in a bad mood that day when we visited. This stuff was typical of our relationship. Anyway, I went to Oglethorpe University in Atlanta.

    My brother went to Birmingham-Southern College in Birmingham, AL. It's also a good school. I went there one summer in between my jr and sr year of high school and liked it. Had my brother not gone there (and I would have been known, once again as my brother's sister!) I would have liked it more.

    I really wanted to go to the University of the South (aka Sewanee) in Sewanee, TN. One caveat for parents: since it's in the middle of nowhere, know that it's a big party school. There's just nothing else to do out there.

    Emory in Atlanta is also good, of course. They also have Oxford College of Emory outside Atlanta, which is tiny (about 1000 freshman and sophomores). There you get an AA in liberal arts. Afterwards, you funnel right into Emory. Very good way to go to Emory without going straight into Emory (and getting the liberal arts experience at Emory).

    There's also Rhodes College in Memphis. I didn't apply there because I didn't like the vibe I got. It seemed too preppy for my taste. But it's another liberal arts college. Just be aware that Memphis is super ghetto.

    You might notice a pattern here: all these colleges are in the South. I grew up in AL, so that's where my mom looked for my brother and me. Unless you want your daughter going across the country, I'll look local to you for liberal arts colleges. I know out west liberal arts colleges are rare. They're pretty common in the South.

    On your last point, I strongly agree.

    Thank you. You can't put a dollar figure on class and charisma, but you can put it in fancy dress and happily take it out for dinner.

    Something you and Plot wrote reminds me of a little boy born on Christmas Eve. Until he was five or six, he believed the whole thing was for him: all the lights, the joy, the gifts, the snowfall and love... How wonderful... the 'feeling' was something like this but with all the smells and sounds, and that something we all experience that no picture can duplicate.

    P.S. I'd like to look out and see 'this' tomorrow morning, just for a day!
