    [–] Is B really bad for engineering? RadCentrism 3 points ago in Cornell

    I think that's advisor for dual-degree? (across two separate colleges). He's probably an asshole; there are many in administration. Some students do need someone to keep them grounded a bit before they are too ambitious with their academic courseload.

    If you are confident in your ability to complete the double major don't let that discourage you.

    [–] Is B really bad for engineering? RadCentrism 3 points ago in Cornell

    Is it your current advisor, or an advisor for the major you wish to add?

    [–] Is B really bad for engineering? RadCentrism 18 points ago in Cornell

    It's completely fine, but not enough to convince someone you could handle an engineering double major.

    [–] As a CS minor, this is kinda bullshit RadCentrism 4 points ago in Cornell

    Not for CS majors generally, they're specifically limiting upper-level courses to affiliated CS majors. Of course the overcrowding in general is a problem, but Cornell with its resources is much better equipped to adjust to overcrowding than state schools like Berkeley or UIUC.

    [–] Opinions on Chicago for a career in CS?? RadCentrism 9 points ago * (lasted edited 9 days ago) in cscareerquestions

    Seattle <<<< Chicago

    Edit: I guess we shouldn't argue this unless we are talking about the same thing. If some big companies move to Chicago, it'd easily absorb that population growth. If Chicago became next Silicon Valley (unlikely IMO) then sure COL will ramp up a lot.

    [–] Opinions on Chicago for a career in CS?? RadCentrism 7 points ago in cscareerquestions

    The COL won't drastically spike in Chicago. It's a major city, big enough to absorb the influx of tech workers.

    [–] JCC Was Intended to Be ‘Institutional Check’ on Elections Committee With Power to Overturn Rulings, Emails Show RadCentrism 14 points ago in Cornell

    “There were such procedural errors that any decision that they reached had to be overturned,” she said. “I found bias, and it wasn’t a recommendation, it was a ruling." - Kendall Karr, Law '18

    [–] Obama congratulates Loyola RadCentrism 1 points ago in chicago

    Yeah they're both true. Anything is true about the elements of an empty set. I could say every bone in a jellyfish is made of gold and it would still be vacuously true. It's not my logic, it's a common tool of formal logic.

    [–] Obama congratulates Loyola RadCentrism 3 points ago * (lasted edited a month ago) in chicago

    Every bone in his body is classy. This is vacuously true for the case where Obama has no bones.

    [–] Men can never have fun.... NOT ALLOWED! RadCentrism 1 points ago in gatekeeping

    the finance industry is there to make a shit system either slightly less shit

    Sounds good to me

    [–] Is there a degree program other than something in STEM that's worth paying full price for? RadCentrism 3 points ago in personalfinance

    I would also argue that an Ivy league history/science/communication/etc major has a better shot at Wall St than a state-school business major.

    [–] Is there a degree program other than something in STEM that's worth paying full price for? RadCentrism 1 points ago in personalfinance

    Definitely requires a lot of math, and many Ivies categorize their econ programs as STEM to help international students get work visas.

    [–] Men can never have fun.... NOT ALLOWED! RadCentrism 10 points ago in gatekeeping

    If "business types" don't do anything useful why do people pay them?

    [–] For any CS major upperclassmen... RadCentrism 5 points ago in Cornell

    Pretty sure you need LinAlg and Statistics. That's Cornell stats, not AP Stats.

    [–] advice for finding someone to swap rooms with for next year? RadCentrism 12 points ago in Cornell

    Probably post on facebook. Also, why? A single in Bethe is a great place to live!

    [–] Nervous about moving to NYC RadCentrism 2 points ago in Cornell

    I’ve found people from the East Coast to be high strung - everyone in my hometown/state is always so relaxed and often very kind

    So true! I would say dive into your career in NYC, and when it truly gets too much, you can always go leave (and probably have to take a pay cut when you do).

    [–] You're not even male if you're under 5'7" RadCentrism 1 points ago in gatekeeping

    I'm just meme-ing, but also non-80s kids will still get 80s references.
