I have been to this site for a couple of years ago, got my mind in the Booglehead philosophy, asked a few questions, and said to myself Okay I got what I do need to know, nothing much for me in this...

Re: Dishwasher Recomendations

I trust you mean food disposal (self cleaning)? Our LG slim line has been fantastic. I won't give you our model number as it's probably out of date now; the LDS5540ST looks comparable to what we have. It is so quiet, I would not know whether or not it were on but for the fact I'm the one who starts...

Dishwasher Recomendations

In the market for a new Dishwasher. Our current dishwasher had the food dispenser ( self clean) and heated drying.
Hence looking with the same features : food dispenser and hot air drying.

Any recomendations appreciated.

Re: Lexus RX 300. Timing belt. $884.

I got almost the same estimate for my 1999 Honda Odessey. Did not do it.
Seems high. However friends told me around $400, with minimal changes, such as no water pump change is normal.

Re: Deciding college for High School Graduate

I went to University of Michigan for undergrad and got into med school. That being said I'm sure if I had the same grades and MCAT score I probably would have gotten in to med school whether I went to Michigan State, Alma, Albion, etc. That being said if you like smaller classes, more individual at...

Re: Deciding college for High School Graduate

As a high school Govt/Economics teacher for 16 years I see senior students struggle with this decision. In my opinion too much emphasis is put on the college they attend and not enough is put on the biggest factor in how successful they will be, which is the student. Robert Thanks Robert. Sure your...

Re: Deciding college for High School Graduate

Being a physician here is my advice. If your daughter truly wants to go to medical school, it will not matter what college she goes to. I know plenty of people who went to harvard undergraduate who could not get into a us medical school. Why? Because they could not score over 30 on the mcat and ach...

Thanks stemikger.
