Can anyone give me more info on it? Is it worth it? I don't really know anything about it, but it sounds interesting. Would it be better than a normal chem major from MSU, or do I have this all wrong? Thanks!
Most of your classes will be in the same building. The professors have offices in the building. The classes are smaller. The professors teach, not TA's, but they do have Learning Assistants that handle the recitation classes where you go over homework and do quizzes. The Learning Assistants also have office hours in the building for helping with the homework. Your cafeteria is open 7 days a week. You can take Calculus in 3 semesters instead of 4. There are lots of jobs and internships in the science field while going there. You really get to know the people there. Very friendly people. You will have some classes only Lyman Briggs have. My son really likes Lyman Briggs.
You don't have to stay the entire 4 years You can move out and switch to regular MSU classes if you want to.
It's not hard to get into Lyman Briggs in the sense that you need a high GPA/ ACT etc. It is just difficult in that it is first come/first serve and by this time it is probably more than full. Keep trying, I'm sure you go on a waiting list or something .
A lot of pre-med students go to Lyman Briggs. Also, I heard, pre-vet. I heard a few years back that they do have waiting lists if it gets full but I think you still have a good chance of getting in. Good luck.
Yes. People are constantly dropping out and switching majors . Odds are that if it is full it will be open by next summer before or during AOP.
You could try emailing the admissions rep for Lyman Briggs Lyman Briggs - Future Students: Applying to LBC (her contact info is on that page) to see if there is still room and how you could go about changing your program, or for just more information .
Don't give up! It is only December. They don't really know who all is moving out until next spring. Things move very fast at MSU. I know someone who was on a list for wanting a room in another dorm and figured he had no chance because he was number 60-something on the waiting list for that dorm but he got a room a few weeks later during winter break.
Oh sorry lol. AOP is academic orientation program. Its what you go to in the summer overnight for orientation and to choose your classes . The word is second nature now and I forget sometimes that I didn't know it less than a year ago.
Ashes, I've never lived in either one. The main thing about Brody is that they are freshmen dorms which tend to party alot a just not be as nice as other dorms (this is from friends who live there). However, they're getting a brand new caf which is supposed to be very nice. I honestly don't know anything about Holmes, sorry .
Somewhere there is a thread where someone described all the dorms on here. I'll find it and link it back to you .
