  • According to the source below it's in the 3.1-3.2 range. That seems to fit. They also show 2.84 in 1991. That seems reasonable because I worked for the Registrar and Academic Advising offices during my undergrad years and I vaguely remember the Institute-wide average GPA was somewhere in the area of...

  • Of course, but grade inflation at RPI and has been less extreme than most colleges and universities. One of the main drivers is the level of support and structure that the athletes get. Study periods, study groups, tutoring (if required) and academic monitoring help to ensure that the athletes can meet...

    The Brown announcers talked about that. They said that would enable Brown to play its two games against Union when they go to the Capital District. They kind of ignored the "but what about Yale-Union" issue.

    BTW: Marah Wagner just tied up the game at 1-1 in the second. Engineers...

  • I just got another email invitation from the Alumni Office with an invitation to the Harvard game on Friday. Sigh. Giving them the benefit of the doubt I'd guess that they queued that up before the holidays, but they should work on issuing an update ASAP. I sent them a note so they should be aware....

  • Since Army announced this afternoon that they've added a Saturday game against Penn State it's pretty clear they are committed to having hockey at West Point this weekend. As of now I have 3 going. Anyone else planning to attend?

    I was working so I only saw segments of the third period but we looked too passive. However, a win is a win and to paraphrase Bill Belichick, “We’re on to Army.”

    I hope Mr. Linden has his application in for the Lally graduate program. Maybe I'll look for the order form of the Ture Linden clothing collection..........

  • For long time fans of not just RPI, but college hockey in general, Don Birkmayer was a legend. It was difficult to even get information on our own league beyond the standings board at the FH. Modern fans will probably find it quaint, but I'd look forward to every issue of the Intercollegiate Hockey...

  • That's definitely a recent change for Harvard. I was considering going to that game and as recently as a week or so ago they were selling individual game tickets and the only non-student section that was completely sold out was in the RPI block....

  • A few days ago I read an article indicating that the University of Washington biostats team (which has been lauded for accuracy and blasted for inaccuracy at varying points during the pandemic) was forecasting a stunning 140M new domestic cases in the next 3 months due to Omicron's highly contagious...

  • Now I am getting a bit worried. If we can't host a game on 12/30, with outside fans already excluded and virtually no inside the containment fans on campus, what are the standards for hosting in the future?

    As of today Army hasn't made any changes to their admittance policies for the...

  • "Nature's vaccine" - I like that. It's what I meant by "considerably milder might be a path out of this mess." A weaker version that is highly transmissible would rapidly spread natural immunity, which as you noted is likely to be stronger because the immune system is exposed to...

  • I hope you're right because "considerably milder" might be the begining of a path out of this mess, but what I've heard from people tracking the medical data is that they are fairly certain that Omicron severity is not signicantly worse than Delta, but whether it is comparable or less severe...

  • Perhaps it was because I only listened to the first game in Alaska rather than watching it, but I didn't perceive that as a "stolen" game by any measure. We scored on the first shot of the third period to go up 3-0. After that Alaska nearly doubled their shot total (adding 17 versus 10 more...

  • I didn't watch any of the Alaska games but I listened to most of the Nanook broadcast for all of them. We played a seemingly lifeless brand of hockey against a team that, as a result of a brutal schedule, was far better than its record but one that we should have been more competitive against (better...
