To those of you interested in Entrepreneurship/VC, Ross has some great resources: Professor Tom Kinnear's take on the Zell Lurie institute for Entrepreneurship and the Wolverine VC fund. Enjoy :-)

I don't drink hard anymore but I do enjoy a good beer, glass of wine, or gin and tonic now and then.

I'll second that. I don't drink a lot due to my low tolerance (which I blame on my asian genes). However I will definately have a couple glasses of wine at dinner, a couple beers at the bar etc.

Well, I am in to be the Ann Arbor version of "Frank the Tank" from Old School. Weekends are drinking time for me... At the GBR Hill House party on Friday, I downed a dozen beers and was still able to find my hotel room. Thanks for a fellow admit who gave me a ride... As an Eastern European, I still have enough tolerance left. :-D
Being 6'2" and 200 pounds helps with the absorption as well! :beer

No worries drinkers!

p.s. Dosa, I take it as we did not run into each other that night!

ok, so I said I 'don't like to drink' which means, getting waisted at parties or drinking the night away in bars is not my idea of a good time.

but, I will have a glass or two of wine at special dinners/business events, I don't call that drinking :)

oh and since I am Eastern European a couple of glasses of wine does nothing to me.

Is there a thread on apt hunting?

I visited 5 places and am deciding between (1) Woodbury, (2) a further away place with a racquetball court, pool table, and sauna and (3) a closer place w/ indoor pool and sauna.

I drive a 4wd SUV so driving (I hope) should not be too much of an issue with the places about 4 miles away. However, seeing how many MBA students live at Woodbury, I very well might just want to join the mob.

Any thoughts, guys and gals? Thanks...

I'm Asian (OK Indian if you really want to be specific), but I think I've 'upped' my tolerance. Of course, I'm not a 'tank' like Manylander here ;-)

I believe half the learning in school would come from my fellow classmates, so i would prefer to be in area popular with MBA students... it would be easier to do group studies, improptu discussions, party, crash etc etc.. having said tht, i am not picky abt the facilities provided, as long as it is neat and safe. ( God knows if we will have time for that)

I know i need to go my homework.. but if anyone else knows..

Can we get the Loan sactioned earlier than July 2008. If not,would having a letter from the Bschool, stating tht the loan is guarenteed suffice for Visa requirements?
