Re: ESPN Calls Out Mass Youth Hockey during National Championship Game

No skin in this game, but UMass is a highly regarded State University compared to the same in other States. Remember, they have a Medical School too

The most famous graduate of the Umass medical school is Dr. J who played for the Sixers! :upside_down_face:

My take having been through this from a hiring side, a full tuition paying parent at a wide range of schools.

Locally the funny one is the before Flutie (BF) and for a decade or so after, BC grads who walk around like they attended an Ivy caliber institution when back then it was basically Marquette University or Xavier or a Loyola - nice but no top 50 school. Now it\\\'s a slightly better than average school but not a great academic institution.

NU it\\\'s all about the internships and the professional programs - not deep in high thought but effective in getting a kid through and getting a kid a career. Not high powered academics but professional career path.

BU, it\\\'s whatever you make it. Typical wide ranging school where you can get through and keep going if that\\\'s your interest.

UMass - old people don\\\'t know it but certain programs are highly regarded and as a whole it\\\'s moving up. Business or engineering student from NU or UMass? Toss-up today
Not buying it.
UMA does not have a top EE or ME program. It the E backup school.
UML has a top 5 CE and PE program.
I work for a large engineering firm. We have had graduates from NU and other private schools fail the EIT a couple of times before passing while others from Umass Amherst pass first time, never mind professional licensure. Also, where they received their degree had little bearing on hiring as long as the school was accredited. More interested in work experience and references.

Regardless, they still don't want your kid, that's the point of this thread.

5-6 years ago when UMass hockey was really terrible and before the coaching change the lack of Mass kids was always a big DBoard topic. And the fact the old regime had scouts all over Europe, Canada and the eastern bloc looking for players when many Mass kids not only could have helped, but their parents had been supporting the school for decades by paying taxes in state. UMN for years had a policy that they could only roster one non-Minnesotan...ONE! Really the Mass hockey kids dream of playing in and winning the Beanpot and UMass isn't part of that.

I don't think I'd call BC/BU/NU are 'all far better academic institutions.' Yeah on average but the difference is getting smaller than old timers think.
How do you know someone went to BC/BU/NU... They told you!
