So let's do this. I'll make you a real bet right now. $50 says you are not in the top 5% of your class at the end if the year. You want in?

Let's raise the bet to a few grand

I'm practicing for 6 years pal - you're not going to scare me off by raising the stakes.

but he has access to unlimited student loan debt that he naively believes to be consequence free. you can't compete with that.

this thread is ridiculous on too many fronts.

1) don't attend a school planning to transfer. just too many variables.

2) lol at the transfer social pariah theory. there are, gasp, other transfers, which creates a natural community, and really havent seen any of this hostility from the general population of which Fenton speaks.

I did fail to take that into consideration.
