2023.04.02 12:17 PassionDaddy101 Choosing between Princeton and Stanford

So I have the absolute privilege of getting into Princeton, Stanford, Duke and Johns Hopkins in the past 24 hours. I’m now deciding between Princeton and Stanford and I’m torn.
Basic info: cost is bascially the same because of scholarships. I’m from the UK so east coast is cheaper to fly.
CAREEACADEMICS: I applied as a polticial science/public policy/econ major. I hope to go into work related to economics, finance or public policy kind of stuff. I’ve heard east coast is the best for this, especially Princeton because it’s close to NY and relatively close to DC (compared to Stanford lol). I haven’t yet done my similar level of research on Stanford but Princeton’s SPIA (School of Public and International Affairs) is one of the best if not the best in the world, which seems very exciting. I’m also interested in the intersection of public policy and AI which Princeton is doing research on that I’m intrigued by.
So career and academic wise it seems to currently makes better sense to go to Princeton — Although both schools have fantastic international reputations
Student life:
I’ve spent so much time watching Stanford vlogs — the life there and the campus seems like heaven. Of course Stanford isn’t without its flaws (Stanford bubble) but it does seem incredible + I’d love to cycle/electric skateboard to class! Stanford new neighbourhood system seems cool as well though I don’t know enough about it to comment.
Princeton, I know everything abt this school from Justin and Nicholas Chae vlogs. Princeton campus is EPIC for its old school architecture. I also really like the residential college system for the first 2 years. Potential negatives are the tough academics (apparently there’s grade deflation???) and the fact that the fencing team are way beyond my level. I could potential join Princeton as a walk on athlete but still unlikely. Whereas with Stanford (also Division 1), I’d have a bit better chance of getting on the team. I’m a fencer for my national team btw but Americans are insane at fencing.
Major questions and final remarks:
For my academics and career path, am I correct in thinking Princeton is better?
Using your anecdotes, how would you compare the student life of either school?
My mom says that since Princeton doesn’t have a business or law school that I should go to Princeton because I won’t get the chance to go there otherwise. Whereas she says that Stanford will always be there for MBA/law. Basically if I want both schools I should go to Princeton for college and possibly Stanford after.
Please could any of y’all help me decide (especially those ppl who have gone/ are at either school though all help is still appreciated)?!!

2023.04.02 11:19 model-super #GEXIX [Shropshire and Staffordshire] model-super attends a Doll House Party

Kids, everybody’s love. But kids also mean playdates, and a lot more. model-super, the Tory candidate for Shropshire, decided to get on everybody’s nerves, by going on a random talk in the middle of the parents’ conversation on school choices. Let’s tune in!
School choices you say Shelly, I will tell you the realities of School Choices. Apart from decreasing Class Sizes, this Government’s policies on School choices is a whole bunch of crap. They first removed the Academies, now the Selective Schools, and certainly will one day scrap out free schools, and force all of your children, however smart, however they are, to standardised state schools. Why, ideology. They want to indoctrinate your children that equality somehow happens when you throw the rich kids and poor kids together.
No! It just means you’re making children feel inferior amongst each other, and doing nothing to face the reality. Uniforms can’t hide the true feelings you see. This is why, plug in, the Tories need to be pushed into power. I know Jess, you don’t like me talking about it, but here me out for once. The Tories have a concrete policy on Education, support Grammars, support academisation, support School Independence, and we will be doing exactly that. We will also be abolishing the GCSEs and replacing it with Baccalaureate styled Assessment systems which means that the year-long contributions of your child can be noted when teachers assign a final grade.
This will make the grading system more rounded, equitable and fair to all children. This is the real equity we need to give our children. We also propose to build a new National Learning Library for students aged 5-18, so that they can access their online learning resources, whenever wherever they want. This will help in their ongoing education efforts and work towards streamlined academic excellence. We also want to increase the minimum wage of 12 pounds per hour for all workers across our country. Work more, earn more, and save harder.
Coming to family, let’s all congratulate Edwards on becoming a new father. For you, we have special legislation. The Tories propose to expand both maternity and paternity leave across the UK, since both parents deserve to spend equal time with their children. We will also be increasing funding for the Family and Youth Services across the nation, to ensure we give our future the very best. We will also be drafting a new Equalities Act which will ensure every person counts, every voice matters and none of it is suppressed in ideological or political whims.
Moving to some Culture announcements, we will be introducing new "Culture and Cultural Heritage Protection Units” in Law Enforcement, who will ensure that our cultural artefacts are not smuggled out of the United Kingdom, and that everyone who does it will get punished seriously. We will also be introducing new Social Media Regulations and reviewing the prospect of a Digital Bill of Rights, to better protect you and our children from the evil forces within the Social Media World.
I think with that, we have spoken a lot. If I speak further, I’d be sent home, asked to reflect on my conduct, so yes, we have a lot more reasons to vote Tories, so please cast your vote for me this Election.
Finally fighting for breath, model-super takes his seat, but this time, with stride, and hopefully more voters on the bank. He finally has cupcakes and leaves the doll-house party, with his thoroughly embarrassed daughter, and moves home.

2023.04.02 08:56 Cautious_End_3812 white boy who needs a bag bags a slight bag (major bag alert) (one shot one kill)

Intended Major(s): applied CS
Standardized Testing
List the highest scores earned and all scores that were reported.
Extracurriculars/Activities: (very vague) * some basic CS stuff. coded some apps and shit * math competitions, good placements regional, sectional, and state * science comps, also good placements * machine learning project related to healthcare sector, expanded in my essay
Awards/Honors: (list here) * basic school awards * pretty big statewide CS award * some misc science / math awards, nothing much
Essays/LORs/Interviews: (briefly reflect/rate) no interview. common app essay was alright, i didn’t take any of that shitty advice i found on youtube i just wrote a good narrative story that showcased my passion for cs. it flowed quite well and didn’t sound forced. 7/10 northwestern essay: related my ML project to research currents profs are doing, emphasized how nu’s interdisciplinary approach is rly important to me. connected many diff parts of the school back to my own personality. also mentioned some clubs, made some jokes here and there. honestly was really good imo 9/10
Decisions (indicate ED/EA/REA/SCEA/RD)
Additional Information: * i have loved northwestern for a while and decided it was the school for me. coming from a working class family i knew i was gonna need hella aid and NU showed up with that $$$ in addition to being my top choice. really happy that i got this done in december but i was reluctant to post. as you can tell i wasn’t the most involved person at hs and if i had one key takeaway it would be to do shit ur rly passionate about. i know it sounds cliche but if you just do it for apps it sounds so forced and fake on your app and essays. i think that’s why it worked out for me; i have always loved cs

Math teacher, 8/10, had him for three classes, TAed for him but wasn’t super close
Econ teacher, 7/10, had her for US History + AP Econ, talked in class but wasn’t that close
Professor of research, 8~9/10, made my mentor (his student) write the letter and showed my dad and according to my dad it was pretty strong
Side note: initially I wanted my French teacher to write me a letter but she retired…
UPenn: 8/10; online; he was nice but I stuttered a bit on a question about my research...
MIT: 8/10; in person; I had a 45-minute chat with her and I learned a bunch about life, workplaces, and obviously MIT lol. I knew I had a 0 chance of getting into MIT but honestly the application fee was worth it with the amazing convo :)
Rice: 9/10; online; I loved my interviewer! She’s a graduate student at UCLA, and she’s super nice :) we had similar backgrounds so we can relate to each others’ experiences
Duke: 7/10; online; my interviewer looked very strict haha, but she was probably paying attention to what I was saying instead of controlling her facial expressions
CA (7/10): wrote about founding my organization and how I tried to spread love of math; wasn’t outstanding; I really wanted to do something creative but my counselor wanted me to play it safe and wanted me to show some “achievements”
UPenn Supp: thank you note to 7th grade math teacher (9/10); contribute to Penn by founding fair trade club and play badminton (8/10); why Penn because computational bio + their research opportunities (7/10)

Cornell (RD)
Dartmouth (RD)
Duke (RD)
Northwestern (RD)
Pomona (RD)

Currently debating between Cambridge and UCLA lol; Cambridge has a super strong math program (ranked so highly worldwide) and only three years of college but UCLA is also super good with the sunny weather and in-state tuition… my parents are willing to pay for either one so…
I think the main problem with my application is my GPA; it's way too low for schools' liking. I shouldn't have trolled during my sophomore year--honestly I don't think I even tried-hard in high school in any year besides my freshman year--but I'll take the consequences. Once again I thank the UCs for not rejecting me and UCLA for finding value in me.
Hope this post entertains or helps you!

I'm of course going to wait for the waitlists but honestly not expecting much. Any comments on what might have been some weaknesses on my application would be greatly appreciated.

  4. AP Capstone Diploma

Letters of Recommendation
  1. Econ Teacher (10/10): THIS GUY WAS THE MAN!!! Never suppressed my personality, taught him what rizz was, and he was just overall a badass mf. Genuinely one of the nicest people ever, and extremely supportive, even when would get in trouble for bs at school this guy had my back!!! Counselor mentioned that it was one of the best recc letter he has ever seen.
  2. ELA Teacher (10/10): Taught me 3 AP classes and was strange at first. Once you unlock his personality tho, he was a menace. Bro was an avid UFC fan, and we would chop it up about Khabib, Jon Jones or our personal favorite KHAMZAT!!!
  3. Counselor (8/10): Told me I wasn't going to get in anywhere and once recommended I apply to Northeastern and Stevens. Even though in those instances he pissed me off, he was really good guy. Felt like he was constantly giving 100%, and me and him would sit there talking for 2 hours straight about anything really. Was able to create a connection with him, and the letter definitely showed that.
Additional Information
All in all I would say my college admissions process was interesting to say the least. I definitely regret not applying myself more through high school, because I know if I had put in the same hours as the try hards at school I would have gotten a 1550 and a 4.0. "If you think the cost of winning is too high, wait until you get the bill of regret", and as corny as it may be after Ivy Day I received the bill. I still have some nice options under my belt though, so if anyone has any advice on where I should go please feel free to mention it. Is it worth it to go to UMich if I am not at Ross, or should I just go to UT?

  9. Member, Tri-M Music Honors Society (12, 1 hwk, 29 wk/yr)
So this is kinda awkward... I didn't report them? Don't ask me because I have no idea how this happened LOL. However, my letters of recommendation almost certainly included National Merit Semifinalist (now Finalist) and Seal of Bileteracy in German.
Letters of Recommendation
Counsler - 5/10
She doesn't really know me. My school changes counslers around every year (which is a dumb idea if you ask me but whatever). She probably just took what I wrote on the profile sheet.
Gifted Teacher - 8/10
Not much to say. She knows me really well, what I am passionate about, my goals, strengths, etc etc.
German Teacher - 10/10
I've had her since freshman years and she would 100% go out of her way to write a stellar recommendation letter for her students. She also knows me probably the best out of any teacher I've ever had, and I perform super well in her class.
Personal Statement - 8/10
I wrote it about baking a cake lol. I managed to connect it to a lot of things that are important to me, such as my difficult family situation, intellectual curiosity, persistence, etc. It might sound cheesy, but I had it reviewed by numerous people and they all thought that it was enjoyable to read and enlightening about my character.

COLLEGES (Safeties not listed)
UChicago (EDII)
"Why UChicago" Essay - 6/10 I really liked it at the time, but in retrospect it seemed too metaphorical and vague instead of just being specific. It wasn't horrible or anything, but it definitely could have been better.
Uncommon Essay - 10/10 I wrote about Kepler with a fidget spinner, and honestly this essay still hits just as hard as the first time I read it.
Video - 8/10 I mostly featured some of my freetime hobbies such as music composition and cubing (I also put one of my pieces in the background). Maybe it was a bit overwhelming for the viewer?
Decision: Rejected :(
Miscellaneous Schools:
Williams (RD): Rejected
Bowdoin (RD): Rejected
Vandy (RD)
Extracirricular Supplement - 7/10 I wrote about spending time composing music and the friends I made through it from middle school onwards. It was ok.
Decision: Rejected, not disappointed because I only applied because my parents wanted me to.
WashU (RD)
Major Essay - 4/10 I thought it was fine. I looked back at it later. It was ass.
Video - 8/10 See UChicago video.
Decision: Rejected, but 100% valid considering how ass that essay was.
Northwestern (RD)
"Why Northwestern" Essay - 9/10 It wasn't anything revolutionary, but it was really good. I was really specific about why I wanted to attend, including programs, learning methodology, activities, etc.
Interview - N/A
Decision: ACCEPTED??????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

(Briefly reflect on interview experiences, if applicable.)
(Briefly reflect on the quality of your writing, time spent, and topic of main personal statement.)
Decisions (indicate ED/EA/REA/SCEA/RD)
Additional Information:
I didn't get a single acceptance until February. That SJSU rejection really killed me inside, but I'm glad to be going to UW -- it's a great school for engineering and specifically what I want to do. I think I'll be happy there. Only thing I don't like is how much it costs out-of-state, but that's about it.
Though I don't want to live with any regrets, I do honestly wish that I cared more about my grades. Taking a hard course load doesn't mean anything if you can't do well in it. Maybe if I worked a little harder. Maybe if those 4's on my AP's were 5's. Maybe I wouldn't be counting my acceptances on one hand.
Then, maybe, those waitlists could be acceptances, and I could be going to Berkeley or LA with my friends.

2023.04.02 07:14 alex9834 The Haters Guide to the 2023 NCAA Basketball Championship

This tournament sure was...something. In the 14 years that I have followed the NCAA Tournament I have never seen it get this crazy before. This was a complete 180 from last year's Tournament, where we only had Blue Bloods in the Final Four, and a blue blood champion. This year, it is not the case. We have CHAOS.
Now, let us take a look at the failures, and boy do I have a few words for some teams here...
Arizona Wildcats - For the third year in a row, we have a 15 over 2 upset in the opening round. And Arizona was offered up as this year's sacrifice. To be fair, this isn't as big of an upset compared to other 15-over-2 upsets. Believe it or not, I actually saw this coming. The moment Princeton was announced as the opponent, I knew Arizona was gonna go down early. The Tigers just outplayed them and held strong throughout the entire game. Just like in 1996, when they upset defending national champion UCLA in the first round, the Tigers' next upset would unsurprisingly come against a Pac-12 team. Man, 15-over-2 upsets are becoming a staple in March Madness now...future 2 seeds better watch out...
Virginia Cavaliers - This was yet another upset most saw coming, but my god...I'm still stunned by this. Virginia was even leading for most of the game, but then they just imploded near the end. That turnover...what the hell was that?
I swear, Virginia must have sold it's soul for a National Title back in 2019...
Iowa State Cyclones - I swear, the Cyclones are like destined to bow out early in the tournament. It's as if its required by law for them to fall early no matter how high expectations are for them. It wasn't even a contest, the Panthers just straight up slaughtered them. Iowa State is one of the next contestants for my next Legacy of Failure script. But only IF they meet certain conditions...
At least the Cyclones lost to an 11 seed, and 11 seeds at least have moderate success in the tournament.
At least they're not these sorry sacks:
Purdue's Boiler Explosion - What the fuck. What. The fuck. WHAT. THE. FUCK. WAS. THAT. Don't get me wrong, I knew you weren't going to make the Final Four this year. I knew you were going to choke. But as a #1 SEED IN THE FIRST ROUND?! When you were favored by TWENTY FOUR TO WIN?!! Do you realize what you have just done?! This is quite possibly the greatest failure in the history of college sports! This was your ALL-IN year, and you fall to a double digit seed for the third year in a row? Absolutely unacceptable. Matt Painter is on a SEARING hot seat now.
One word, Purdue: NUKE. Blow it up. You aren't winning with Painter. You aren't winning with this coaching staff. You aren't winning this core, and you aren't winning with these mentally fragile players who can't handle a shred of adversity.
Tick, tick, Painter and Lusk. It's time for a house cleaning in West Lafayette. Fucking Purdue... YOU BLEW IT!!!
Memphis Tigers - Penny Hardaway is getting Memphis on the right track. They won the AAC Tournament title over Houston, securing their second straight appearance in the Big Dance. But unfortunately, the Cinderella bug hit them, and it came in the form of Florida Atlantic, who won their first tournament game in school history. Memphis is still an interesting team nonetheless, and I'm eager to see how far Hardaway can take this team in the future.
Iowa Hawkeyes - Congratulations! Your team STILL can't make it past the first weekend of the tournament! This time you get rekt by Auburn. Fran McCaffrey continues to show that he cannot survive come March Madness despite his regular season successes. Iowa, if I were you I would find a new coach already. Fran is not the man.
Texas A&M Aggies - The Aggies had a solid regular season. They came close to winning the SEC Tournament title but got decimated by Alabama. Is this football or basketball I'm covering here? I'm confused. Anyway, it really seemed as if the Aggies had it in them to go on a reasonable run as they were a 7 seed, but then they went to Des Moines and got blown the fuck out by a team that hadn't won a tournament game in 22 years. The failure is always bigger in Texas...
USC Trojans - Despite losing the other Mobley brother to the draft last offseason, the Trojans still snuck their way into the Big Dance yet again. Unfortunately, Tom Izzo's Spartans killed any hopes they had of a deep run. The Trojans failed to conquer Sparta, and it's time for me to break out this scene from 300 again...
Providence Friars - After making the Sweet 16 last year, the Friars had another good team this season and were ranked for most of the latter half of the season. But unfortunately, Kentucky remembered last year's upset at the hands of Saint Peter's and decided to kill any hopes the Friars had of a deep run.
Baylor Bears - Once again, Baylor fails to make it past the second round. Despite maintaining most of the 2021 National Championship roster the Bears still cannot find it in themselves to get past the first weekend again. It wasn't even a contest, Creighton flat out controlled the tempo for the entire game. 2021 had better not have been a fluke for your guys...
Fairleigh Dickinson Knights - Congrats, FDU! You became the 2nd #16 seed to beat a #1! Your consolation prize is blowing a late lead to Florida Atlantic in round two. Eh, who cares. You still pulled off the upset. The fact that this only happened 5 years after UMBC's stunning upset over Virginia is the most shocking fact about this too. Now, no #1 seed is safe. We are entering a period in the tournament where even the lowest seeds are now potential contenders. It'll be interesting to see how 2024's tournament goes...
Saint Mary's Gaels - Ah, it's that other WCC team. Congrats on winning another tournament game! Your prize is to get absolutely slaughtered by UConn. Great...
Penn State Nittany Lions - Congrats, Penn State! You won your first tournament game in 22 years! Even though you took the Longhorns to the limit, a big run just wasn't in the cards for you this year. Can we grant another tournament win to Penn State and put them in the Sweet 16 instead of Texas? They deserve it a lot more than Purdue...
Pittsburgh Panthers - Congrats, Pitt! You returned to the NCAA Tournament for the first time in 7 years! You even won a tournament game too! Though all good things must come to an end, and you get upended by Xavier.
Indiana Hoosiers - What in the literal fuck was that supposed to be? Weren't you supposed to make a big run this year? This was the best team you've had in almost a decade and you just decided to crumble like that?! Sure, Miami was playing the game of their lives but it still shouldn't have been a 16-point blowout. Well, could be worse I guess. You could be Purdue...
Kentucky Wildcats - Let's start with the good news first: You were not upset in the first round this time. Instead you get eliminated by your old friends from K-State yet again. Which is good because we don't have to deal with more arrogance from the Kentucky fanbase this time. Nobody likes Kentucky anyway, so there was much rejoicing.
Duke Blue Devils - Even with Coach K no longer in the College Basketball world, the Blue Devils still manage to appear in the NCAA Tournament as a reasonably high seed. They managed to end Oral Roberts' foolish ambitions in the first round (I really wanted to make more sex jokes from that...), but then got absolutely BTFOd by Tennessee in the next round. The Evil Empire has been stopped yet again. But they'll be back here again. The Blue Devils never stay down for long...
Marquette Golden Eagles - HOW MANY TIMES DO WE HAVE TO TEACH YOU THIS LESSON, OLD MAN?! Once again, Shaka Smart cannot make it past the first weekend of the tournament. Tom Izzo's Spartans put him in his place yet again. For fuck's sake, it's been a DECADE since Smart's coaching schemes got exposed by John Beilein in 2013. And he still has not gotten the message. Did I ever tell you what the definition of insanity is, Mr. Smart?
Auburn Tigers - Thanks for allowing us to laugh at Iowa again, Auburn. Now enjoy getting slaughtered by Houston in the next round.
Kansas Jayhawks - For the second year in a row, the defending national champion falls in the second round. Kansas appeared as if they would have this game in the bag, as they led by as much as 10 throughout the game. But then the team just imploded. The Razorbacks fought their way back and managed to eke out the win in the final seconds. Cherish that championship, Kansas. It may be the only one you win for a while.
TCU Horned Frogs - It seems like TCU sports are on the rise as of late. Their football team made the College Football Playoff, and their basketball team entered the tournament as a #6 seed! They even won another tournament game! But unfortunately they failed to make us laugh at Gonzaga again, as the Bulldogs narrowly escaped with the win.
Northwestern Wildcats - Welcome back to the tournament again, Northwestern! Even though this is only your second NCAA tournament appearance, you managed to win another tournament game! But a deep run just wasn't in the cards for you this time. Even after giving UCLA all they could handle, it just wasn't enough. I hope the Wildcats are able to make it back here again someday. Chris Collins seems to have something good going at Evanston. Let's see how things go the next few years.
Missouri Tigers - Congrats, Missouri! You won your first tournament game in 13 years! Your reward is to get absolutely blown the fuck out by another set of Tigers...who were seeded 15th. Come on now. Sure, Princeton was playing the game of their lives, but it still shouldn't have been a 15-point blowout. You're one of the contestants for a future Legacy of Failure script, Missouri. Give me something to truly laugh at and it'll be icing on the cake.
Maryland Terrapins - I'm gonna save the Big Bill Hell's rant this time. The Terps seemed to put a decent fight in the first half, but the Crimson Tide decided that was far enough, and put them out of their misery.
Princeton Tigers - Congrats, Princeton! You returned to the Sweet 16 for the first time in 56 years, and are only the fourth 15 seed to reach the Sweet 16! Third one in a row to do so, in fact! But all good things must come to an end, and there was another team looking to end their own demons. Creighton returned to the Elite Eight for the first time since the year Pearl Harbor happened.
Alabama Crimson Tide - The third #1 seed to fall this tournament. The Tide controlled the tempo most of the game, but the Aztecs eventually took the lead and never looked back. Once again, Alabama's dream to be a champion in both football and basketball like Michigan did in 1989 has not come to fruition. Maybe next year?
Tennessee Volunteers - Tennessee manages to return to the Sweet 16. And that's as far as they go. It's time for them to be upset by an inferior team again, and this time it's Florida Atlantic. The only time it appeared as if the Vols controlled the game was in the first half. But then FAU decided they wanted to go further. They took the lead in the second half, even leading by as much as 10 points, but they didn't relinquish it, making their first ever Elite Eight.
Michigan State Spartans - Congratulations! Your team finally made it past the second round! But the Sweet 16 is as far as you go. And they screwed up big time. This was yet another game where MSU's opponent was doing their best to hand the game to them, but they once again couldn't capitalize on their mistakes. K-State was literally handing them the game on a silver platter. They blew multiple leads and were even pushed into overtime. They even let you stay in the game until the final seconds! But then you just had to fuck up and let Markquis Nowell dance on your ashes, even letting him make NCAA history in the process.
Houston Cougars - What the hell was that, Houston? That has got to be arguably the worst performance by a 1 seed in the Sweet 16 in recent memory! This was the best team you've had since the days of Phi Slama Jama, and you go and do THAT?! Jesus Christ, you're pathetic. It wasn't even a contest, Miami barely even had to fucking try! Well, at least you're joining a real conference in the Big 12 next season. Hopefully the opponents from that conference can toughen you up and make you more formidable in next year's tournament.
Xavier Musketeers - Congrats, Xavier! You returned to the Sweet 16 for the first time in six years! Enjoy getting absolutely mauled by the Longhorns.
UCLA Bruins - Now this was a shock to see. This was the absolute inverse of 2006. The Bruins build up a big lead, only for Gonzaga to come back and build a big lead...only for the Bruins to storm right back and go up by 1. Maybe this is a repeat of 2006?
"Strawther for the lead...BULLSEYE!!!!"
And the Bulldogs have finally gotten their proper revenge for 2006, where they lost in the West region after blowing a big lead in the Sweet 16. Adam Morrison laughs, and the rest of the country breaths a sigh of relief as they don't have to see Los Angeles win another championship.
Arkansas Razorbacks - Great job, Arkansas! You managed to knock off the defending national champions! Your prize is to get absolutely steamrolled by UConn in the next 23 points. Great...
Creighton Bluejays - Congrats, Creighton! You returned to the Elite Eight for the first time since WORLD WAR II!! And you're on the verge of becoming the first team from Nebraska to make the Final Four, beating out even the Cornhuskers! Imagine that! But it was not to be. The Bluejays built up a decent lead, and were on the verge of becoming the first #6 seed to make the Final Four since the Fab Five Michigan squad in 1992. But they couldn't hold it, as the Aztecs slowly crawled their way back. The Bluejays didn't really make any big mistakes, they didn't foul all that much, but at the end of the day it wasn't enough. They nearly sent the game into OT, but then...a last second foul call gave the Aztecs new life (Refball? You decide.). They would lose by a point. They were THAT close. But I honestly can't be mad at them. Still a successful season though. Hopefully next year you can get over the hump.
Kansas State Wildcats - I swear to god, K-State has to be the most unlucky team in NCAA Tournament history. This was their NINTH trip to the Elite Eight since their last Final Four berth in 1964 and they fell just short yet again. And like in 2010 and 2018, it was to a Cinderella team. First it was Butler. Then it was Sister Jean's henchmen from Loyola-Chicago. Now, it was FAU. Despite having a strong roster, the Wildcats once again could not end their long Final Four drought. Folks like to talk about Purdue being unlucky, but I think the real bridesmaid here is K-State. Just absolutely brutal. Which is why they're a candidate for my next Legacy of Failure script.
Texas Longhorns - This was very much a Days of our Steelers season for Longhorns basketball. Head coach Chris Beard was axed following an incident where he beat his wife (FUCKING IDIOT), and assistant Rodney Terry had to step in and clean up the mess. Thankfully, it was a good hire. Terry helped guide the Longhorns to their best season in ages, as they returned to the Elite Eight for the first time in 15 years. It appeared as if they were on the verge of returning to the Final Four for the first time in two decades! But then, the team straight up SHAT THE BED. Texas could not get anything going at all near the end of the game, as the Hurricanes came back from 13 points down to make their first Final Four. YOU BLEW IT!!!
Though lets be honest here, the refs were absolute dogshit. Calling blatant offensive fouls as fouls on the player guarding, are you fucking kidding me? Still, the Longhorns did screw up and blow that lead. Blame the refs all you want, but you want to know what would have helped? Not blowing a 13 point lead late in the second half. But at least Rodney Terry has shown that he can coach. Hopefully he can lead this Texas team to new heights in the future.
Gonzaga Bulldogs - pukes uncontrollably Fucking hell, are you kidding me? What the hell were you doing all game long? This was your ALL-IN year. You were the top scoring team in the country. You had the best player in the nation in Drew Timme! And you got absolutely beaten to a pulp by the team that beat you in your first Elite Eight appearance 24 years ago. Sure, UConn was playing the game of their lives, but it still shouldn't have been a near-30 point slaughter. You managed to unleash the Pandora's Box of Locusts known as UConn fans on the College Basketball world. Your Legacy of Failure continues. UConn is still getting the best of you after all these years, eh?
Florida Atlantic Owls - Oh my god, it's going to happen! The Owls are about to make history! They're up by 14! Sure the Aztecs cut that lead down to 1 in the final seconds, not to mention the refs are absolute shit, but the Owls are about to make history and become the first 9 seed to make the National Championship! Let's hear it for FAU!
"They don't have their scorers on the's Butler, with 2 seconds, he's gotta put it up and...-buzzer sounds- HE WINS IT!!! HE WINS IT WITH THE JUMPER!!! A San Diego State Miracle!"
OH MY MERCIFUL GOD!!! Well, this sucks. But it was still a successful season nonetheless. The third 9 seed to ever make the Final Four, and it happened in your second NCAA tournament appearance! Well, you'll be joining a better conference in the AAC next year. Hopefully you can make another big run like this again someday.
Miami Hurricanes - Congrats, Miami! You made your first Final Four in school history! And then the fun stops. UConn comes in to spoil the day. I would rip on Miami here, but nothing went right for them at all this game. Nothing. Missing 14 layups in the second half? Christ, that's brutal. Even though Jim Larrañaga tried his best to get Miami's stars on the right track, they were no match for the Huskies. Whenever Miami tried to strike back, UConn said 'Nope!' and put the Hurricanes on lockdown for the rest of the game. Nonetheless, this was a good run for Miami this year. You'll be back here eventually.
Whew, that was a crazy tournament. Now we're finally down to only two. And only one of these teams will be walking away with a championship.
Let's bring out contestant number one...
Connecticut Huskies
The Huskies have returned to the National Championship for the fifth time in school history, and for the first time in almost a decade. The last time they were here, the Final Four was held in the other major Texas metropolis of Dallas-Ft. Worth, and the Huskies became the first 7 seed in NCAA Tournament history to win a National Championship. Now, they are here for more.
The face of this revived UConn squad has been Jordan Hawkins, a sophomore from Maryland who has been this team's leading scorer in their past two matchups against Arkansas and Gonzaga, and it has been a long road for him. During the season opener he suffered his second concussion in his playing career and had to sit out the first two games, but he has thankfully made a full recovery and is playing better than ever. Joining him has been African sensation Adama Sanogo, a two-time first-team All-Big East award winner. He and Hawkins have been the bread and butter of this UConn squad, as both have been leading the team in scoring in a majority of games this season. Sanogo has also been this team's rebounding machine, as he has led the team in rebounds in all four of their tournament games so far. Rounding out UConn's Big 3 has been Andre Jackson Jr., who has been the Assists leader for this team in 18 games including the NCAA Tournament.
UConn has been the hottest team in this tournament thus far, as they've won each of their first four games by at least 10 points or more. Iona? 14-point win. #5 St. Mary's? 15 point win. #8 Arkansas, who just took down the defending national champs? 23 point win. #3 seed Gonzaga, who had three-time consensus All-American Drew Timme? Doesn't matter to them, they won by 28. #5 Miami? Even though the Hurricanes tried to put up a fight, they were beaten by 13. This Huskies team is absolutely unstoppable. The last two teams who won their first five tournament games by double digits both went on to win the national title - North Carolina in 2009, and Villanova in 2018. And it looks like history is about to repeat itself. UConn is hungry for it's fifth national title.
This #4 seed is playing like a #1 seed, and they are for sure the favorite to win it all. Just like every other time UConn has a solid team in the tournament, it's National Championship or bust.
Prepare for their wrath.
But not if their opponents have anything to say about it...
San Diego State Aztecs
The Aztecs have made it to the National Championship game. Exactly as everyone predicted at the start of the tournament. What this team reminds me of is the drug addict that has had numerous chances to get his shit together but constantly relapsed every time. And it's only through a reflection and a last second intervention that he starts to get clean.
For a while it felt as if San Diego State would never make it here. Former Michigan head coach Steve Fisher and his longtime assistant Brian Dutcher spent YEARS building this team into a contender. And the Aztecs have put up many elite teams over the years, but could only go as far as the Sweet 16 at best.
2011 seemed to be their year. They fell to UConn. In 2014, they were a 4 seed. They fell to Arizona. And after a series of first and second round eliminations, they finally got over the hump and made it to the promised land, though just BARELY.
This run has been far from easy for the Aztecs. They escaped by 7 points against Charleston in the first round. In the second they destroyed Furman, who just upset Virginia. Then came the Sweet 16, their opponent was the overall #1 seed in Alabama. It looked like another early exit for the Aztecs again. But then, a miracle happened. They rallied from 9 points down in the second half against Alabama to take the lead for good and make their first ever Elite Eight. And in their first Elite Eight, Creighton pushed them to the limit. However, they managed to overcome another deficit and escape by the skin of their teeth in the last second (Refball? You decide.). Same case in their first ever Final Four. They trailed by fourteen against Florida Atlantic, and it felt as if that was it. But then, the Aztecs pulled off another miracle to win by 1. That miracle's name? Lamont Butler. This team is the Energizer Bunny of the tournament. They will not die no matter how much stress you put on them.
SDSU's sudden appearance in the National Championship feels less like a "Glad you made it here!" and more of a "FINALLY!!". Considering all of the elite talent and top-tier coaching they've possessed over the years, it's still surprising that it took them this long to get here. But hey, better late than never.
Fuck you, Spanos!
The face of this San Diego State team has been Matt Bradley, a two-time First-team All-Mountain West selection. Alongside him is Ghanaian sensation Nathan Mensah, who is known for his immense wingspan of 7'4 ft, and has led this team in rebounds in two of their four wins this tournament. Other standouts on this Aztecs team include Jaedon LeDee, Micah Parrish, Darion Trammell, and Lamont Butler, who has led the team in Assists this tournament.
Brian Dutcher has built a winner this tournament, but we all know what his ultimate goal is - a National Championship. Though it wouldn't be his first. His first title came with the 1989 Michigan team led by Glen Rice and Rumeal Robinson, where he was an assistant under Coach Fisher. Now he's looking to win one as a head coach.
The Aztecs seek to become the first team from California to win a national title in basketball since 1995. That year, UCLA won their 11th National Title in school history by knocking off the "40 Minutes of Hell" Arkansas squad, a rather formidable opponent on par with this UConn team. And no team from California has done it since.
Will San Diego State be the team to break that drought, and become the fourth team from the Golden State to win a National Title? Will they become the first non-power five conference team to win a National Title since UNLV did it in 1990?
Will the Aztecs become the first team from San Diego to win a championship in either the pros or college, and break the San Diego sports curse?
And so, here it is. The Big East Empire of Doom, versus the Mountain West's only hope!
Time for battle.
Unfortunately, there will be no miracles this time. I think UConn has this one in the bag. They've been destroying their opponents with ease, like North Carolina and Villanova before them. No matter what you throw at them, they'll just push it aside like a cardboard box. Their 28-point win over a stacked Gonzaga team is proof of this. They always seem to have an answer for whatever their opponents throw at them, and therefore the choice is easy.
UConn will steamroll the Aztecs by at least 10 points and cruise to a 5th National Championship, tying with both Duke and Indiana for the fourth most championships.
Have a nice day.

2023.04.02 06:26 Life-Average-3448 Update: Moving to SG for fiance - how to handle housing costs?

Thank you so much for the wealth of advice and experience everyone has shared with me since yesterday. I spent hours reading through the personal stories that everyone has shared with me about the hard sacrifices that are needed to make a marriage work. Before this, I was so focused on this 50/50 mentality that I even forgot for a moment about the generosity, love, and understanding that we need to share with one another as a couple. I am really thankful and have a lot to learn from everyone as a future wife and mother one day. I just wanted to post an update since yesterday to seek advice once again.
This morning, I spoke to my fiancé’s father over the phone. I reached out to him directly because he emotionally supported me through a difficult time and is someone I already consider as family.
He says that 3-3.5M is an affordable and reasonable condo and that it’s very normal for parents to help buy the first home in Singapore. Among many reasons, he wants us to live near him so they can easily help with childcare when needed (they are expecting grandchildren; will probably see them once a week). He rejected my idea to live outside the central area, or an HDB.
He is a very supportive father to my fiancé and said they have already financially prepared to buy a condo in the central area, but my parents must contribute as much as they can (around half), and they will top up the remaining half and any more if needed.
The part that I feel uncomfortable with is that he argues that my family is rich, even throughout my relationship I have never claimed once to be so. Although my maternal grandparents are "rich", my father is an academic and my mother has always been a sahm. Throughout her marriage, my mother received 0 financial support from her own parents to be independent. My paternal grandfather used to own a business but it’s more than 15 years since he passed away. He/ my fiancé says “there must be more funds that my dad has”, speculates about my father’s inheritance, and that 1.5.-1.75M can “easily” be gifted from my father.
I’m the only daughter so throughout my life so my parents were very generous to me in terms of lifestyle. Because of this reason, they believe I am "hiding money" somewhere and would be “lying” if I my parents cannot afford this sum. My parents are very simple people who enjoy travel but are also very ordinary and don’t spend on luxury items. I know that 1.5-1.75M will be a stretch for my parents.
I’m very torn about how to feel that they are really insisting on this narrative about my parents that are not entirely true, and even if so, why they are demanding money from their own in-laws. My fiancé's father is being very supportive to help us with the house but I feel he is almost guilt tripping me if my father wouldn't support me as well. Lots of mixed emotions but the main one is that I feel apologetic toward my parents. They have made many sacrifices to raise me, and it pains me to keep asking from them.
TLDR: Spoke to fiancé's father in law who says he expected the parents to fully cover housing in a location chosen by and close to him. He is an extremely supportive father to his son in many ways, and more than willing to contribute his 50 share so that we can have a strong base in SG, but the remaining 50 must come from my parents for this to be equal, and he claims this can "easily" be done by my father. He makes assumptions about my parents that I have never once represented to be true and is almost making my father feel guilty if he doesn't contribute. Other than this, fiancé is a great partner to me in many ways and whom I love very much. I want to solve this issue rather than give up at the first sign of a "red flag" as I am not perfect either, but unsure about where to start.

The Conflict Of Law, And How To Resolve It Peacefully?
Conflict of law refers to a situation where there are differences between the legal systems of two or more jurisdictions. In other words, it is a situation where there is a conflict between the laws of different countries or states they create a legal dispute. This can be a complex issue, especially in today’s globalized world.
Where people and businesses are increasingly operating across national borders. The resolution of conflicts of law can involve a variety of legal principles and rules. Such as choice of law rules, forum selection, and the recognition and enforcement of foreign judgments. Understanding the conflict of laws is crucial for lawyers and legal professionals.

2023.04.02 05:31 hvnneloree Political Science or Psychology?

So I’m currently a Criminal Justice major who originally had the dream of working for the FBI, but recently realized that I want to go to law school to be an attorney instead. With my GPA, I am looking at guaranteed admissions to my target law school and have been advised to consider a second major given I have enough credit hours to spare. Of course, I still have to score well on the LSAT.
Anyways, I’m struggling to choose between political science or psychology as my second major. I’ve read countless articles, student reviews, and even read through all of the given course descriptions. All that did was confuse me more since I’m so interested in both. I want to choose the major that would benefit me more on the long run and in my academic and professional ambitions.
Any advice?

Extenuating Circumstances
I was diagnosed with a chronic illness in December. I have been battling severe symptoms since my sophomore year, which caused me to do poorly academically since my stomach and GI tract were inflamed severely then. I am now medicated and in remission, but Chron's Disease negatively affected my academic performance. I will use my position in the Cancer Awareness non-profit to raise awareness for my illness and show that I am growing from that.

Supplemental essays were actually horrible now that I know how the college application thing works like genuinely insanely bad. CommonApp essay was really good, used a personal anecdote and used it to describe how its effected and influenced my decision making.

2023.04.02 03:14 ImPickleRickBytch Theoretical: how to randomize my crypto into a new wallet before a potential crackdown

Totally theoretical.
Let’s say I’m worried about the US government cracking down on crypto. I’ve noticed more and more questions about crypto on my taxes every year, fortunately I’ve never sold so I’ve never had to give any information lol.
Let’s say I wanted to “randomize” to a wallet that’s not associated with me, my bank accounts, or anything tied to me prior to a crackdown. In this theory, I’m a patriotic person, do not break the law, but feel as though an attack on my personal crypto holding is antithetical. I don’t tell the government about my Pokémon cards, why should I about crypto?
So anyways, hypothetical answers? If you’re actually an expert and don’t feel comfortable posting it, send that hypothetical to my inbox so I can study that for purely academic purposes.

Letters of Recommendation
Read them all, don't know what the rating scale would be but History, Physics, Calc BC teachers all gave me very positive reccomendations, especially discussing my leadership and importance in the classroom.
Outside Recs were from my manager at #3 who gave a strong rec on leadership, technical skills, and work ethic. Other one was from my contact at #4, very positive
MIT, Harvard, Duke were spectacular! Georgetown, Harvey Mudd, Northwestern were very good! Yale and Princeton were rather average. I think I had like a couple more but I don't remember tbh so they were probably like just normal.
Good overall, I think I'm a solid writer. PS was abt growing up in a heavily under-resourced community, moving and finding my love for robotics, and eventually growing to a point where I could bring those opportunities back to my old community. I think one big issue was that several of my topics were kinda risky? Firstly for my "time your views were challenged" essay I talked about my gun culture advocacy journey, which a lot of people told me not to do but I really loved that essay. I got straight rejected everywhere that essay went LOL. Another one talked about my work helping 3D design rememberance models at a hospital for terminally ill children. Using this experience may have rubbed some people the wrong way? Not too sure to be honest.
Decisions (indicate ED/EA/REA/SCEA/RD)
Acceptances: (arranged in order id go to them in)
Additional Information:
  1. I'm just happy the whole process is over. This year our class of 600 only had 2 ivies and a stanford, and I feel lincredibly blessed to have been one of that number.
  2. I think fit probably matters a lot more for colleges than I might have initially guessed. Penn and Michigan were the perfect fit schools for me, and I was headed to one of them either way
  3. Shotgunning worked for me at least, but I don't know if its a good fit for everyone? I applied to every T10 and 17/21 T20s, got into 1 and got waitlisted at 3 T10s and a T20. Had I applied to like half the schools, I think I'd probably be Michigan bound right now? Though also I would say that shotgunning doesn't work because of the fact that admissions is a "lottery," but more so because the same student might meet the institutional priorities at one school but not any others. If your app is strong enough for T20s though, I think it is smart to apply to several.
  4. I have no idea what happened with my UC apps lol. I'm pretty sad that I didn't get any of the top 3 UCs, especially considering the fact that I got accepted to all 3 of the <5% oos CS programs (umich, ga tech, and uiuc) as well as an ivy. I feel like as an in-state student I should have gotten at least one of those 3. Cal and ucsd rejections + ucla waitlist wwew absolutely soulcrushing for me. It is what it is though, I would not have taken any of the UC schools above Penn so in the end I'm happy someone else got that spot there.
  5. Have fun! I had so much fun throughout high school, partially because I was able to manage my time really well and partially because I loved everything I was doing and didn't do anything specifically for college. In all of my activities I was leading a larger group of people who I really got along with, making them all great times to.
  6. Quick shoutout to my robotics team! Out of the 11 graduating seniors, our commitments read: UPenn, Harvard, Harvard (not at our school though), Stanford, UCLA, UCLA, UCLA, Georgia Tech, Cal, Cal, UT
  7. Michigan IS SUCH A GOOD SCHOOL. Michigan is lowkey the perfect school. Everyone should apply to Michigan. I think if I do go to grad school that is where I am planning to go. That is where I plan to send my little sister. Go Blue!
Helpful info:
  1. Forbes feature: This just happened because I'd gotten a LinkedIn setup early and I was active in all my organizations. One of the people I met through EC #2 writes for Forbes, and when they began writing on the topic of teenagers making impacts through tech, they reached out to me and I was happy to oblidge! I think a good way of getting features like this (which I know because that's how most of the other teenagers featured in that article got in) is just emailing authors for these websites who have written about similar topics before.
  2. Internships: All of my internships also came through networking! EC #3 came from a robotics team mentor (who we recruited through LinkedIn) who found our work impressive and thought we could help his company. EC #8 came from a random internship program I heard about through friends, and EC #9 came from a parent of one of the students I taught through my non-profit who was impressed by my teaching skills and talked later. After finding out about their business, I went ahead and asked if I could get involved, and they were willing to let me pursue some projects for them!
  3. Standardized testing tips: It's better to practice then to study. When I'm reviewing for AP tests, I always just do practice tests generally, not like reading through the book, and all my ACT prep was restricted to weekly practice tests I took for a couple months. Also for AP CS A, I think the reason I was able to perfect was that I was actively teaching the curriculum to others too, which meant that I HAD to have a deeper understanding of the content.
If you have any other questions, feel free to DM or comment!
