My wife (gf at the time) went through the exact same thing 4 years ago. She ultimately chose S'port and has excelled. She is currently interviewing for residencies and will have her pick of top programs across the country. Her deciding factor was that she just felt more comfortable here and it had a...

Thats what I'm now doing.. Filing it under my policy and hoping I get my deductible reimbursed when the other party decides they don't want to be worthless human beings.

Not a bad idea.
I've definitely learned my lesson. What pissed me off more is that I called my insurance agent while they were giving me their info and they told me I wouldn't need a police report.
Never again. ...

So a couple weeks ago I'm sitting in the middle turn lane on Perkins waiting to turn left. A SUV catches the rear passenger corner of my vehicle and we pull in and exchange insurance. The damage was minimal, just need a new rear bumper, taillight and some quarter panel work. We had the same insuranc...

03' PreRunner . Has 248k on it and only routine maintenance, and I've run it hard since I got it 06' with 30k. Has pulled my boat all over the southeast and through the mountains in Missouri/Arky..

There really isn't a direct route into it, other than creating relationships by having a VC firm invest your startup or having a ridiculous resume.
I work for a company in the VC industry that's actually based in Louisiana (Yeah, I was surprised too). Our founder literally wrote the encyclopedia...
