MST3K - fish

More college stuff, this time using the Princeton Review website!

I just did the Counselor-O-Matic from Princeton Review (from the link at http://encarta.msn.com/encnet/departments/college/?article=rankings2006). It's a bit cooler than www.collegeboard.com, as it gives you 'best fit', 'reach' and 'safety' schools. My top three results for each, in order:

BEST FIT
American University
Carnegie Mellon University
University of Rochester

REACH
Dartmouth College
Pomona College
Brown University

SAFETY
Ohio Northern University
Rochester Institute of Technology
Gustavus Adolphus College

Damn, Rochester NY wants me! And how awesome is it that American fits me best, and Dartmouth is my top reach school? I knew it was the best of the Ivies! I remember looking into Rochester Institute of Technology, too. Interesting... Off to investigate!

People with yellow Interests like job responsibilities that include organizing and systematizing, and professions that are detail-oriented, predictable, and objective. People with yellow Interests enjoy activities that include: ordering, numbering, scheduling, systematizing, preserving, maintaining, measuring, specifying details, and archiving, which often lead to work in research, banking, accounting, systems analysis, tax law, finance, government work, and engineering.

People with blue styles prefer to perform their job responsibilities in a manner that is supportive and helpful to others with a minimum of confrontation. They prefer to work where they have time to think things through before acting. People with blue style tend to be insightful, reflective, selectively sociable, creative, thoughtful, emotional, imaginative, and sensitive. Usually they thrive in a cutting edge, informally paced, future-oriented environment. You will want to choose a work environment or career path in which your style is welcomed and produces results.

Sounds like me, which is bad. Especially the second one. "Minimum of confrontation"? Not good for law enforcement.

My suggested careers?

CSI and the Insanity that is the Denver-Metro Area in Winter

Whoa. That missing girl with the unfortunate name? Totally just called a homicide – she may have died as much as a year and a half ago! Why does the Denver-Metro area always get the crazy? Like, dude. There needs to be a CSI: Denver, and they’d have enough ‘ripped from the headlines’ episodes for three seasons!

Oh, look. Road rage ending with a guy shooting off a shotgun – and his car is one of the Columbine ‘respect life’ ones. Jeez.

For Christ’s sake! What the hell is it with winter in Colorado? Everyone goes nuts and starts hopping counters to rob banks and shit. Freakin’ Colorado, damn it. Five attempted abductions in Denver Public Schools since school started.

And now, CSI!

Am I the only one who remembers a time when kids were safe walking through their neighborhoods, even all by themselves? I see all this shit on the news these days and think my parents must have been crazy to let me wander wide and far from age five on – and even to let me run around the culdesac starting at age three! Sure, it was a military neighborhood, but what about after moving to Colorado? I was only seven, and my only restriction was “Be home when the streetlamps turn on”. No way in hell am I letting my kids wander the neighborhood by themselves at age seven. HELL no.
