  3. How Southern are yew?

    57% dixie. Raised in Northern Virginia, where people go through great lengths to distinguish themselves from the rest of Virginia, yet my high school's rival was named after Robert E. Lee. Go figure
  4. College advice

    One of my best friends here at UVa is doing exactly what you've described: Air Force ROTC and Aeronautical Engineering. The engineering school here may not be as prestigious as some of the other schools mentioned here like, such as Purdue or Embry Riddle, but being able to say you went to a school like UVa carries a lot of weight. My advice is to find a school that you can actually see yourself living there for four years of your life. The ranking of a university's enginieering program doesn't really mean that much until you reach graduate school. All of the schools you are looking at right now are good schools for what you want academically right now, so now you need to see which one offers you the most outside of the class room.

    Isn't this what we have lazer cats for?

  8. Which file would I need to edit if I wanted to change it so that I'm not always going after cargo ships and tankers in single mission?
  9. What do you Drive?

    UVa will bend the rules a little for student athletes (a category I kinda fall in) so that first-years (it's a UVa thing) can bring their cars. But any where you can't get to on your feet here you can to by bus for free.
  10. What do you Drive?

    I drove a 1998 Subaru Forester, but Charlottesville's laws prohibit first-years at the university from driving within the city limits.
  11. Are there any runners here...?

    We do a lot of running for conditioning for crew, so we also run into this problem occasionally. If you'd like to stay in shape while recovering, try using an indoor rowing machine (rowers call them ergs) instead. It works about the same muscles used in running, as well as some others, and is zero impact. I hope this helps.
  12. omellet experimentaion?

    It's not quite as adventurous as some of the previously mentioned omlettes, but I enjoyed mixing in some onion and garlic jelly into mine.

  14. Mega Poll: Greatest Rock Albums of All Time

    Thanks, I almost didn't put the Beastie Boys in there because some people consider them old school hip-hop.

  16. Grand Theft Auto 4

    I was playing it this weekend with some friends, and I thought it was pretty awesome, but I never played the previous versions. I'd say go for it.

  22. Colleges

    UVA's football team might nor be number one, but their crew team is ranked 15th in the country, and thats the team that matters to me
  23. Colleges

    Soooo.... after much thought and consideration, I have decided to enroll at the University of Virginia. No one tell Dagger, though . J/K. But seriously all of the schools I was considering are extremely good schools, and this was one of the hardest decisions of my life. And I mean no disrespect if I choose this school over your alma mater or something like that. I chose the school I thought would be best for me.
