Seriously, I'm just telling you guys so you know once you begin big-boy school: People judge you, ok? They judge you. Like, when I see some kid with acne or dirty clothes, I think "immature...ugly...homeless--ew!" Wake up, you're professionals! I mean, look up the Butterfly Effect if you don't believe me. This is real and observed.

:roll: Calm down, guys. I made this design for fun in response to dproduct's comment.

In any case, no one's asking you to wear this to work or a professional environment. Would I wear this to my job at a law firm? No. Would I wear it at home or at the beach? Probably. Anecdotal, but people wore similar tanks all the time at my UG and yet it's still considered a top school. You guys are overthinking or I'm just spoiled by the West Coast...

This thread title is confusing. Stop WUSTLing over my top 5 consensus Lounge thread.

Maybe some people missed the epic "halo effect" discussion/beat down.

I think they may be issuing scholarships first... but according to LSN graphs, there is a steady trickle of admissions from February onward.

dproduct took over the thread and established a dictatorship. Ultimately he was forced to bow to popular opinion. I never doubted him for a second.

The end.

They will move across the country to live in an entirely new location to be together. They absolutely, 100% need to be part of the decision. Parents won't be there to hold your hand during school, your SO will, let go. Brest feeding should end at the age of one.

tl;dr teiswei got all crazy about parents going with students to ASD and the thread got a little crazy

The whole thing makes for a good, humorous read in retrospect. You should go back and check it out. It won't disappoint!
