Yippee!!

Was there really any doubt, though, with his grades and his athletic accomplishments? This was a slam dunk.

Where is the love of Marcus's young life going to be?

Thanks guys

first Bob he has no "love of his life" anymore sad, she is attractive, smart, nice and a heck of a hoops player..... but they are no longer together, just friends but who knows.......

Hopefully he'll last longer and attend a few more classes than Fab Melo !! Says he's gonna be a walk on......... we'll see if there is a need for a sort of slow, not really quick, no jump, not tall, white kid.

got a pretty good financial deal too covers more than 1/2 of the cost !!

Beat,

First of all, please give Marcus my sincere congratulations!

Next, I can give him my nephew's name over at SU. Andrew will be s Senior next year and lives in one of the campus frat houses. Beautiful historic building where they have their own chef, their own rooms and throw some lavish wild parties...then again I can skip the intro to my nephew if you like.

Michael Jordan's daughter is there too, maybe Marcus can keep an eye out for her.

Good job mom and dad. Two smart kids; you're batting 1.000!

Beat and Marcus,

Some things are just meant to be, and this was obviously one of them. A great match—a super school and a super student with three point ability. I know this will be a wonderful experience for Marcus and a thrill for the family members who give him such support and love.

All the best, Marcus and the rest of the family as well.

beat,

Bummer about Marcus' love life. Puppy love is a beautiful thing but it is also quite fragile. I'm sure you gave him the "there are plenty of fish in the sea" talk. Hell, wait until he gets to Syracuse and realizes it's an aquarium that's fully stocked!

Good job on securing the financial deal. There are many, many successful people who do not have college degrees: Billionaire Bill Gates dropped out of Harvard, Billionaire Steve Jobs dropped out of Reed College, Dave Thomas of Wendy's fame dropped out of high school (an event he later declared to be a big mistake, setting and example and going back to school for his GED long after he needed to worry about that), Billionaire Sir Richard Branson's academic career ended when he was 16. However, unless you are an especially gifted person, or hit on the lucky fad-du-jour or such, the smart money flows to the person with the education.

Here's an article from Forbes magazine on the difference in career earning potentials between the different levels of academic degrees...

Another thing we found out about this acceptance yesterday.

Over 500 applicants applied for early admission for this major.....only 21 were accepted nationwide. Marcus was one of the 21. Simply amazing.

And all these years I thought the left arm would lead to things like this?

Guess it goes to show that the brain is a heck of a lot more important than a so so fastball.
