    [–] My friend matched w/ this guy on Okcupid Popopopper123 2 points ago in ChoosingBeggars

    Damn I was so close but I'm actually Harry Potter so I guess that disqualifies me

    [–] How do I go about getting loans for college? Popopopper123 1 points ago in college

    Which colleges are you considering? If you live in Mississippi or Wyoming or something and your out of state option is, like, MIT, then the loans are probably worth it, but otherwise probably not.

    [–] How hard is to get to top schools from Community College or from CUNYs ?? Popopopper123 1 points ago in college

    Definitely retake the SAT. A 1300 is simply not high enough for Columbia or Cornell, especially if you're a transfer applicant. If you want more advice, consider posting on /r/applyingtocollege.

    [–] How hard is to get to top schools from Community College or from CUNYs ?? Popopopper123 1 points ago in college

    I'm pretty sure the other guy is wrong in saying they only accept lateral transfers. Top schools like Columbia or Cornell usually only take in students who have a good reason to transfer, and someone transferring from another Ivy probably doesn't have that great a reason considering they're already in an excellent academic environment. I'm fairly sure that most transfers they take come from community colleges and "lower tier" colleges. That said, it's still not going to be easy to transfer, as usually they only take a few students anyway.

    What a great way to get shot by the police

    [–] Adversity scores list? Popopopper123 1 points ago in ApplyingToCollege

    But then wouldn't they lose their justification for charging money to send scores in the first place?

    [–] If this massive series of nerfs was announced along with a series of massive buffs to crappier exotics, this 'conversation' would be very different. Popopopper123 2 points ago in DestinyTheGame

    No, because people will probably get more mad about nerfs than excited about buffs, and they probably would rather have people know about the nerfs ahead of time since they didn't realize just how mad people would get. Personally I'm holding out for the actual patch notes, since I think there's a good chance they'll be buffing stuff.

    [–] What's the deal with Joe Rogan being a "Gateway to the Alt-Right"? Popopopper123 2 points ago in OutOfTheLoop

    A little while ago, Richard Spencer wanted to give a speech at Auburn University. Since Auburn is a public school, it was obligated to let him do so, though they released a statement saying they condemn his views. A few days later, the administration cancelled the event, citing safety reasons. In response, law professor Geoffrey Stone wrote an op-ed for the New York Times essentially saying that Auburn should have let him speak. Spencer then approached Stone, asking him to sponsor an event at the University of Chicago. He refused, and his response essentially sums up this issue:

    Dear Mr. Spencer,

    My strong support for the right of students and faculty to invite speakers to campus to address whatever views they think worth discussing does not mean that I personally think that all views are worth discussing. From what I have seen of your views, they do not seem to me at add anything of value to serious and reasoned discourse, which is of course the central goal of a university. Thus, although I would defend the right of others to invite you to speak, I don’t see any reason for me to encourage or to endorse such an event.

    Joe Rogan is in the same position as Geoffrey Stone was there. Just because he should have the right to invite people like Alex Jones onto his show doesn't mean that he should actually invite them. As said in his response, some views simply aren't worth discussing.

    Sorry if you don't have at least a 1601 on the SAT you have no chance. You were so close.

    [–] Adversity scores list? Popopopper123 1 points ago in ApplyingToCollege

    What if it's retroactive lmao

    [–] Adversity scores list? Popopopper123 10 points ago in ApplyingToCollege

    You may be done with college board but unless you never plan on taking the GRE or GMAT or LSAT or MCAT then you're not gonna be done with the ETS for a while

    [–] Adversity scores list? Popopopper123 24 points ago in ApplyingToCollege

    Holy shit what if college board is trying to stop colleges from allowing students to self-report by not allowing students to see their adversity scores? Then colleges that want to use it are forced to make students send official scores or they won't be able to see it

    [–] The 5'9" - 6'0" tall person going out in public starter pack Popopopper123 1 points ago in starterpacks

    That's kind of the point, since even if you're just slightly above average you still (in my experience) get told you're tall

    Yeah well it's a good thing I'm here to provide it with the high-quality content it needs to stop that decline
