When I was in school, it sure seemed that the kids in either of these colleges were just a little bit arrogant, as if they were the end all be all. Did anyone else feel the same way?

It's at least deserved for us JMC folks.
James Madison by a mile. They're just the worst. Tiny penises too.

JMC crushes Lyman Briggs in passion for MSU sports, as the past two posters have shown. Being in the best dorm for sports fans on campus is a big boon.
JMC, and it's not even close.
was not in James Madison. JMC are my initials. Sorry.
I guess I was just around a lot of Lyman Briggs kids...
I loved JMC. And yes, some of us can be arrogant. But there were some great people there and I feel I got a great education there.
Probably Lyman Briggs. JMC has lots of extra homework. Kind of like high school mixed with college. Plus, you don't really learn anything more in that college. Lots of bs majors.
as a non-madison who lived in case, those madison people were weirdos.
Well with liberal arts, it is a lot more philosophical and a lot less practical. You can discuss Plato for a month and it'll be really interesting... but there's not a lot of jobs in that. JMC grads tend to need advanced degrees (JDs, masters, etc.) a lot of the time. If I had to go back, I'd have done a double major with economics or something. I'd recommend the same to others.
JMC crushes MSU poli sci, but it's a place where you figure out right away that you are either going to law school, some other graduate program, or election politics. You can get into policy too, but you're starting on the ground floor like everyone else. There is a lot of DC connections to it because it's pretty tight knit. But yeah, some strange kids make their way there.
I loved JMC, but I'll admit I hold a second degree. Although I'm also pursuing an advanced degree...
tons of kids do go into JMC thinking law school prep though. And I don't hold it, but the IR major is legit useful.
A man's gotta eat!
As a science major who lived in Case for 2 years, I can say the Madison people were a lot more fun to be around. Sure a lot of them were weird, but interesting weird. As opposed to the lame weird that predominated in Briggs.
Is lyman briggs the one in Holmes hall?
My dad used to live in Akers. Apparently they used to throw jello at the nerdy lyman briggs people
...You have no idea what you're talking about.
Also, the Briggs incoming class is 60/40 girls to guys.
Did he steal their lunch money too?
You can disagree all you want, but that was my experience. Clearly I haven't interacted with every person to ever be in Briggs, just my perception while I was at State.
Madison guy here.
And we were awesome.
The friends I made that were in Madison and Briggs that were humble about it are some of the most intelligent people I know. Conversely, the ones that made sure everyone knew they were in JMC/LB that I know are not doing as well. (4 years out of school now)
General Honors College seemed to be way cool about their academics. In all my classes I could tell the Briggs people because they probably told you that before their name, same goes for Madison and the ones that didn't say anything were Honors College by process of elimination.
Prior Planning Prevents Poor Performance
JMC had extra homework? What are you talking about? Almost every class consisted of daily/weekly readings, one long paper, a midterm, and a final. A few might have a few shorter papers in there, or require you to submit a formal research proposal as well, but the nature of the classes in Madison didn't allow for busy work.
Go Bears, Blackhawks, White Sox, and Pioneers.
Just because I don't care doesn't mean I don't understand
JMC alum here confirming that 90% of that college was douchebags who were grooming themselves for City Council, School Board, and County Commissioner since age 15. Local and state govt is full of these idiots.
