Has anyone actually had a good reason as to why he should go to MSU over UMich anyway? I don't see how any difference in placement services could seriously be outweighed by the difference in rank and reputation.
You still didn't give a reason why he should choose MSU over UMich. Great, make the claim that the difference between MSU and UMich is less than people act like. That seems to be all you're actually backing up though.
Do you actually believe your Physics, Chem, Calc, etc. classes are any different from the ones taken at other schools or by my son? Do you actually think they use different text books or that some profs look for "easier" textbooks?
It seems like to me, the fact that MSU's engineering program keeps being emphasized as being weaker than U of M's engineering program seems to be hurting your self-esteem. The original point was that large corporations are generally going to be more attracted more to U of M's engineering students when compared to MSU's students. Do you have a problem with that? Did I ever say that its impossible for MSU grads to get out of state jobs? Did I ever say that MSU is a bad school? Can you read? What if a U of M grad working industry just posted what I wrote above? Would you still believe it, or is my age just a convenient way to keep denying everything?
