Yeah. the work requirement is very much depending on the advisor. Both my graduate school advisors were great. i only have to help them when they needed it in the field. never meaningless busy work
One of his friends in another lab had to get the dean to intervene so he could graduate. He had a job lined up and just needed to do his defense but advisor kept delaying that to get more work out of him.

Obviously it is. Pretty much everybody on this board probably went to ISU or some other college, we know. I highly doubt the guy was too heavily invested in properly displaying the exact cost of attendance for each university considering one column was basically to dig UT.
Yep, agree and I get it. I just know it's pretty common for schools to advertise/communicate their tuition cost similar to how that chart does, and there are a lot of first-generation college students/parents out there who see it and think that's what it's going to cost to attend.

I'm sure the guy who made the chart to make fun of UT will keep them in mind next time.

I know, that's what I meant as being misleading, not the poster verifying the figure. Should've been more clear. The chart/graphic that lists tuition is misleading because tuition is less than half of what it actually costs to attend in a given year for most students.
But Room & Board will vary less than tuition across the U.S. Food will be very comparable, room will vary some but not to the extent tuition does.

On-campus room/board at ISU is $9,100; on-campus room/board at Iowa is $11,500; on-campus room/board at UT Austin is $12,300.

Parts Unknown
Houston and UCF have unlimited ceilings based on their location alone.

I absolutely think this conference will be more fun and competitive to watch in its new form. That part I'm excited about.

The part that sucks is we need a very strong media partner(s) to combat the SEC/B1G is best narrative. Nothing new there, but the business of college ball continues to suck
