re: What can LSU do to force Baton Rouge to improve the city? - yellowhammer2098
[quote]Baton Rouge issue is not culcha, or even anything LSU can do. Every southern city is dealing with the scars of Jim crow and dem voting poor lower class. Baton Rouge's issue is infrastructure and planning. It takes me less time to go 20 miles in Houston at 5 than it did some Fridays in bat...

re: What can LSU do to force Baton Rouge to improve the city? - yellowhammer2098
[quote] Again this could probably be attributed to decreased scholarship funding for out of state students coupled with the fact that BAMA and UGA are throwing scholarship money at students.[/quote] The fact is LSU is not doing enough to attract out of state students and money. LSU had great scho...

re: What can LSU do to force Baton Rouge to improve the city? - yellowhammer2098
Be like the University of Alabama and use a "machine" type organization to get students out voting in municipal elections. If the non-student population of Tuscaloosa is deciding local elections, they're not going to be electing good reps that have the University's interest in mind. The university A...

[quote]IIRC she recently graduated valetictorian of her high school, doubt that [/quote] I don't think she was a traditional valedictorian but she graduated with the "highest honors" which is basically everyone that finished with a 4.0. A few small schools in Alabama do this too where every...

re: Thoughts on taking a gap year to work with a non-business degree before MBA? - yellowhammer2098
If you want to get a masters degree at LSU with a business focus just do a Masters of Finance. It'll only take one year and you'll have good job prospects if you're staying in Louisiana. ...

re: OT managers - yellowhammer2098
Definitely depends on the job. For an admin job who really cares? If it is an engineering type job I'd probably hire an Auburn grad over an Alabama grad. I was told by a potential employer "You realize you're an Alabama grad applying for a job in Baton Rouge, right? It seemed light hearted (I di...

re: What if we hadn't halted our lunar program? - yellowhammer2098
Von Braun is probably one of the greatest minds in history. NASA didn't waste their time doing Global Warming research and it was cool. People wanted to grow up to work for NASA. Now, they want to work for Facebook, Twitter and Google. I've got family that worked for NASA back then and I hav...

re: Anyone have any experience with Hyundai vehicles? - yellowhammer2098
Drive an '06 Azera with 98k miles that was basically just "totaled" by an oil leak. They've given me 1-2 years of driving it before the engine dies. Wasn't going to spend $2,000 on repairs for a car worth <$4,000 so I just fixed the immediate needs. Get a Toyota. ETA: You can get a Camry or A...

re: What do I need to do with my money as a recent college grad? - yellowhammer2098
How permanently tied to where you live (Baton Rouge?) are you? If you're not too sure about where you'll be in 3-5 years I would definitely take $11,000 and put it in a ROTH IRA ($5,500 for 2016 and $5,500 for 2017). The deadline to put the $5,500 for 2016 is April 18th (I think). If you're ...

re: Presidential approval ratings after 60 days - yellowhammer2098
I care about results not how the president makes people feel. 60 days into any presidency you aren't going to be seeing any substantial results so I don't really give a shite about 60 day approval ratings. The only approval poll that really matters is the 2020 election....
