i'm in the RC at U-M... from what I heard back in the day, James Madison was for Econ? and Science? what the RC is for Art and Language... If so, it sounds pretty cool. .andy.

Looking at your IP, you must be living in the dorms at MSU (I'd recognize that 35.11 anywhere from my days of running servers out of my room)

Anyhow, I understand that the JMC program is quite good, though in my experience the students tended to be quite full of themselves. A couple people I know who graduated from the program are now working for state representatives assisting with campaigns (or something).

I believe a majority of the college is very liberal. I recall that a JMC girl I dated was hassled by her floormates to get rid of slippers because they were endorsed by Rush Limbaugh.

I suppose that's not an overly glowing review, but if you're looking to end up as a politician, it's where you want to be.

I was in James Madison briefly, when I thought I didn't want to be an English major, but instead tried pre-law. Great place. It made me realize I was made for literature, but I'd recommend it highly.

I started State as a Lyman Briggs student, because at the time I was considering med school. I ended up with a general poli. sci. degree (not JMC), and ultimately ended up with a law degree. I somewhat regret not transferring into JMC now, because I have many JMC alum as friends, and can tell you from first hand experience with those alums, they produce good professionals. Great program for those interested in public policy.

I graduated this past August, International Relations (IR) and Political Theory/Constitutional Democracy (PTCD). Excellent public policy education. Very strong theoretical grounding in the curriculum. What they don't necessarily advertise is that you really need a graduate degree to get a job, but many who go are on the law school track anyway. It's demanding, but it's well worth it you'd be hard pressed to get a better undergrad public policy education in the midwest. Small class size (~30 per), very dedicated faculty.

I'd be happy to answer any questions anyone has about the college.

MSU alum since May of '05. Miss the school and environment terribly. I am at WSU right now. Wayne can't even shake a stick at MSU as far as college environment is concerned. It's cool Wayne is in the city and I am a stone's throw from Tiger's games and a bunch of cool restaurants and bars, but it's basically a commuter school in disguise. Not too much social going on unless you live on campus and even then it seems sparse.

Anyways....

Enjoy MSU. The restaurants and bars are pretty good and alot of fun. The professors and students are all very good. Only had a couple of weird or bad professors through Lyman Briggs. A great atmosphere and school to get a degree from!

Don't plan on being mayor if you're going to such a feeble school such as MSU.

Wazoo- It's scary that you knew where I was from my IP address...

Anyway, I asked the JMC question because I was curious what people thought.

So far, so good.

If anyone has more questions/comments...keep 'em coming...
