    HA! Well, the students definitely aren't like that. Ann Arbor completely erupted that night. That game was amazing. I wasn't a football fan at all before I came here.

    We also haven't had a ton to cheer about anyway in the past few years...

    I have heard that alumni get pretty snotty. But current students aren't like that at all. I mean...I go/live here.

    I've been to a game there in the past. You just need to venture off to some other schools and see their student sections. :p


    I'm at FSUCOM every day! Well, kind of. Actually, I'm at different hospitals and then at a regional campus building once a week. Similar though.

    Depends what you mean by "down there". College hockey isn't big down here. I'd venture to say most people couldn't tell you what the frozen four is, let alone what teams were in it.

    Pro-hockey has a pretty big following for a warm state. Lots of Tampa Lightning fans. I'm friends with a girl in the law school who is religious about watching her games. She even drove to Tampa for a playoff game a few days before an exam...but that is law school for you. ;)

    Pensacola actually has a minor league hockey team...kind of excited to go to some games. Too bad the rules have made it less violent. I like the the old school toothless hockey head types.

    They always were. It just seems more obvious once they graduate and are surrounded by the mental midgets from other schools. ;)

    I mean, it's a good school, but it's not like graduating from Princeton. We all like to think we're special snowflakes I guess :).

    hahaha never ever ever say this to anyone who goes here. you will probably get murdered.

    "harvard of the west" and "public ivy" are pretty much the unofficial slogans, as if "hail to the victors" "leaders and best" "the michigan difference" weren't enough.

    The sense of entitlement, etc is pretty nauseating around here.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michigan_Stadium#Attendance_records

    Scroll up a bit and the yellow slice is the student section.

    haha I wanted to post this the other day but I was posting from my phone. Idk, I guess it might just be a college football loyalty thing, but I don't think you can find a rowdier crowd in college football than in the Big House. Unless you go to a Michigan hockey game--those get pretty ugly.

    In other news, my app is finally under review!

    Penn State student section. Even during slop games they are consistently packed. I know there is bias involved, but several different student section rankings put them at the top. Michigan is still on the list...just a few schools lower. ;)

    The problem with the stadium, before the recent addition, was that while the attendance record was huge, it was a big shallow bowl. The sound just went up and was never very loud on the field. I have friends that played on several other Big 10 teams that even stated how surprised they were with the relatively low level of noise for the crowd size. :p

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rvLKszZAx4Y&feature=related

    That is a day game where they haven't even gotten to drink all day.

    Anyway, applications, interviews, yada yada yada. Hope they are going well for everyone. :p

    :laugh:, I'll make sure I don't.

    Interesting. Again, great school, but "Harvard of the west" is a bit silly. I would agree with "public ivy", but about 5 or 6 schools down on the list. Of course, people here like to think we're awesome too, and refer to us as "Harvard of the south". :smack: SMH

    Does that mean if we start calling Harvard "the Yale of Massachusetts," then Harvard doesn't count anymore?

    Just wait till third year when it feels like you are so close, yet you still have the two years left.

    The only benefit is that third year really does go very fast. I can't believe I've been doing it for 12 weeks already. You keep expecting to feel smarter, but it never seems to come. Also, the second half of MS4 is just a painful countdown to the match with a few rotations thrown in.

    First off, congrats.

    And yep, Pensacola campus. I have two more weeks on psych and then off to family medicine. We have 20 students at Pensacola this year. Next year's class supposedly filled it all up and actually has a waitlist. (People shift around a lot for the first few months)

    I really couldn't have asked for more with most of my attendings. I have hard time believing my friends have played tennis or been invited to watch football or have dinner with their docs at other schools. While I know I won't be going into psych, I have enjoyed my time with the docs tremendously. I just can't wait to have more patient interaction and contribution. Psychiatry gets a bad rap, but it is a field with a good amount of medicine and tons of neuropharmacology, as well as interesting pathology. The nature of the rotation lends itself to observation, which is somewhat painful for an ADD person like myself.

    There is a waitlist for a few campuses in my class (2014). Tallahassee (it seemed) wasnt that high in demand like the classes before us. Orlando is always in demand. 41 out of 121 requested Orlando, i think ~23 people got it. Sarasota is not really in high demand!! Ft. Pierce is Ft.Pierce :) Dayton is great!! (that is where I am going)
