Picture is reversed (see the lettering on the shirts), so maybe that's just what he tried...

The photo was done thru a mirror on purpose.
The game is a school wide event called Humans vs. Zombies.
The Fashion dept folks really go crazy and make some outrageous costumes.
After the pic was taken my daughter painted her gun black with a camo look.

Interesting looking at the type of stuff kids do in four year schools.

I'm in my engineering lab right now in my little, local community college and everyone is working like crazy. Class ends at 12:30 but most students will stay until at least 3:00. Then the majority of them will go to work at a part-time job.

Several students just came to me to complain about one of their lab partners in another class....they told me he wasn't serious enough and did not want to attend their extra, volunteer study session next Saturday (that they've arranged on their own). This is what community college engineering students are mostly like; serious and focused.

Our tuition is about $1,800 per semester.
We use the same books for Calc and Comp 1 as Princeton and have a number of award winning writers in our English dept. My office-mate (an EE) worked at Murray Hill with Bardeen and Schockley, helping to develop the first transistor. I often eat lunch with Dr. Einstein, a physicist and one of our Physics teacher. You've probably heard of his cousin.

Unless a kid gets a full scholarship, I've never understood why more average people don't send their kids to a community college for the first two years.

JP, my daughter actually had that school on her radar .
Being in Canada was a minus plus her field wasn't well documented

Most of our Fashion/Design kids transfer to FIT in NYC.

You think I'm happy about it.
My son, if he doesn't make in into the Naval Academy wants to go to Columbia or MIT.

That will make that 200K look cheap

Couldn't agree with you more about the value of a community college. My oldest son went to one nearby, best thing we ever did. From a kid who almost did not graduate from high school because of grades to making the Deans list when attending the 4yr school. They are a great value.

Kudos to your son don if he gets into Columbia or MIT... My son went to Johns Hopkins and I have no regrets about the $.
I'd rather pay the school than the doctors. If your child works hard to get in then let him go, he deserves it. Hey, it's only money!

For what he wants to do the people aren't looking for prospective employees at the lower Levels.

No idea about the Navy or MIT, but fortunately Columbia was not $200K when I was there and I left with every loan known to studentkind.
From the latest statistics at least the school of engineering has become much, much more selective in the last decade. Unlikely that they would let me in today :smile: If Columbia and MIT are the backup he must be a very impressive kid.

4.0 means nothing to those schools.

Interestingly, my youngest went to a southern university, Tulane. Bright, hard working kid that got through with many honors (for free, yet) and went on to med school at LSU. For the heck of it he applied to several Ivy med schools. Never even got a response. Not even a peep. Now, he finished in the top 10th of 10th percent at Tulane. (I guess I am bragging on him, sorry) MCAT through the roof. Etc.

The Ivy's don't look kindly on Southern kids, unless you are an exceptional minority. Pretty much take from their own gene pool.

My son is finishing his residency at Stanford in July.

Not real fond of the responses from the Northern Elites.
