If you are single dont get a dog. If you are married or going to be moving with a significant other then only get a dog if they have a 9-5 type job.
Also dont adopt a puppy unless you have a HUGE amount of time to devote to it while its young. There is a steep drop off in the amount of attention they require around 2.5 to 3 years. Their energy level from puppyhood to 2.5 is far greater. Having a young dog while in school is definitely a BAD idea.
Kellogg Class of 2010...still active and willing to help. However, I do not do profile reviews, don't offer predictions on chances and am far to busy to review essays, so save the energy of writing me a PM seeking help for these. If I don't respond to a PM that is not one of the previously mentioned trash can destined messages, please don't take it personally I get so many messages I have a hard to responding to most. The more interesting, compelling, or humorous you message the more likely I am to respond.
