Intangibles sure look great. However, I am always nervous about 15 year olds.... very young. Sure passes all the other tests though.
I know we have to offer a kid finishing up 10th grade to stay competitive with other schools, but if the NCAA set up some guidelines stating that a kid can't be offered until March of his junior year, would that really affect anything? I don't know why it bothers me that schools offer these kids so early, but it kind of does. It just seems that it puts added pressure on the kid. I don't know, maybe I'm just an old fart that doesn't know anything.
15 years old!
Best engineering? See you in two years then!! WDE
Our new Dean of Engineering is a big football fan and a great recruiter of talent in his own right. The engineering school is ranked highly nationally and not to mention the entire new engineering complex. Hard to miss on this one!
