re: Rand Paul Speaks to National Urban League - ortiz1193
I just did a basic google search. The articles say not many people showed up - the auditorium was half-full. They blamed it on the fact that the speech was at 8 am. The responses were also kind of mixed. See here: http://www.cincinnati.com/story/news/politics/2014/07/25/urban-league-gives-paul-po...

re: How good of a workout is yoga? Specifically for the core? - ortiz1193
It depends on the style. Like someone else said, I generally do yoga for stretching. I'd bet that most of the time, you'll get a better core workout from any workout video or class that is focused on abs specifically....

Louisiana Tech students on 'What Would You Do?' (gay tolerance) - ortiz1193
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/06/02/gay-kiss-what-would-you-do-_n_5432599.html In MIssissippi. These are two completely normal guys, not the same type of people who protest about graduation or anything like that. La Tech part starts at about 4:20...

re: So my daughter has received interest from an Ivy League school - ortiz1193
PSAT scores should have been out for a few months now. They release the qualifying score for each state next September. If anyone is telling you that scores aren't out, someone isn't doing their job. They released them to high schools in like December. Mississippi had a cutoff of 207 last year. ...

As someone who's actually got experience with the selective college environment, I always try to post in these threads. I'll go ahead and blow some minds here: http://talk.collegeconfidential.com/princeton-university/1631203-princeton-2018-rd-results-discussion-and-review.html That's a board ...

re: Gary Parrish: Tennessee closing in on Louisiana Tech coach Mike White - ortiz1193
I go to Tech. I (and the entire fan base) will be crying ourselves to sleep if he leaves, which should tell you all you need to about how good of a coach he is. Our attendance has gone up, we've gotten drastically better every year, etc blah blah. I'm hoping this is all smoke. I think he's an Ole Mi...

re: 2 youth sports at the same time? - ortiz1193
I'm actually pretty surprised that so many people actually think 2 sports is even worth worrying. I guess my thought is skewed because my best friend in elementary school did karate, tennis, golf, football, baseball, swimming, basketball, regularly. As he got older he began having to choose which on...

re: Better engineering school: LSU or LA Tech? - ortiz1193
Does everyone in this thread realize that college applications to good schools end at like January 1st? If he's only applied to Tech, LSU, and MIT (he won't hear back from MIT until March), then I don't see the point of everyone telling him to go to Georgia Tech, etc , which would have been good adv...

re: Better engineering school: LSU or LA Tech? - ortiz1193
Yeah, this site will definitely be biased. Here's a bunch of anecdotal evidence from my life: I go to Tech now. I have a 35 ACT, national merit, etc, and I can say with full confidence that Tech's engineering program is pretty strong, and it's pretty funny to see people posting lol at having it ...

re: Article on TOPS Reform - ortiz1193
My main disagreement with this plan is the removal of the stipends. Textbooks and other basic school expenses are hardly covered by the stipends. Getting rid of them is not worth it. Then there's the incredibly flawed idea that people with scores that high can already afford it and don't need the st...

Article on TOPS Reform - ortiz1193
Since there have been a handful of threads on TOPS here, I thought I'd share this. A La Tech alum wrote his 80 page masters thesis on TOPS reform. An article discussing a brief overview of the plan is here: http://thelensnola.org/2013/09/12/is-tops-doomed-no-but-sharp-course-correction-needed-to-...

re: TCU College Freshman Is Just 11 Years Old - ortiz1193
I don't know what to think about this kid. The SAT score is just very good, not genius level. I know a kid who got a 2050 in 7th grade. He got a 2300 something his freshman year and he's starting his sophomore year now. He's very, very smart, but no prodigy. I'm sure there are tons of advanced kids...

re: Is there a cheaper place to buy textbooks other than the LSU Barnes&Noble Store? - ortiz1193
In addition to used books on Amazon, I get some books from just googling the title with "pdf" after it. Half the time there's a pdf on the first page of results. If I want a hard copy, I go to my school's office services and print it and bind it for $20. If none of that works, I just get the pre...

re: Louisiana literacy test given to african americans in the 60s - ortiz1193
It's partially a math test. I'm sure there are plenty of competent people who can't use the word bisection so fluidly. I'd bet a very low percent of a students in an average college class would get a perfect score....
