[quote]No doubt. Having a consistent contender will do just that, and we're well on our way. I never understood why more people didn't go to games when I was in school. There was always a group of 3 or 4 of me and my friends that would go to all the games. We sucked 4/5 years I was in school, but st...

Everybody has a different approach but if you go to a dealership at/near model year end (before they release a new body style with significant changes), you can usually talk them down a lot. I got a Jeep GC '13 Overland at cost ($40k) when the sticker was around $48k. 2-3 year old JGCs with 20k-30...

I work at a firm in Nola and we do not have an internship program. If someone does offer such a program, I would imagine it would be available to upperclassmen. The firm in BR I previously mentioned is a good place to start/ask questions/send a resume to in a couple of years. They are the largest...

My post was referring to work as a trainee (apprentice) at a commercial firm, which is pretty standard for getting into the industry. His split will probably be between 35% to 50% while working under someone. Hitting $100k in this scenario is achievable 2-3 years in and pay can increase substantia...

I started on and work on the commercial side so I can't tell you much about the residential side of the profession as it's a completely different animal. If your kid is going to LSU, tell him to major in business (preferably finance). If I'm hiring someone, that's the ideal degree and graduate sch...
