So what you discussing really could only be an issue with the S and the M, and those aren nearly as naturally profitable, especially without an advanced degree, as engineering majors. Finally and most importantly, I don agree with your assumption that people applying as STEM have higher stats. And not everyone wants to be a STEM major.
BBC Review Ten tracks of timeless, simply adorned song craft never constrained by Nashville tropes.David Sheppard 2010Tambourine wielding 23 year old Tennessean Caitlin Rose had musical antennae wagging at the beginning of the year with her debut EP, Dead Flowers: an opening salvo which evinced a refreshingly ballsy yet ingenuous approach to the country idiom. One national newspaper dubbed her most exciting act in Nashville right now, which might be regarded as small beer by more cynical observers of contemporary country mawkish power ballad predilection, although it should certainly have had fellow Nashvillians Lambchop and Cortney Tidwell looking to their laurels.Delivering on that precocious promise, Rose debut long player actually reins in her EP feistier extremes somewhat to deliver 10 tracks of timeless, simply adorned (albeit by some dextrously restrained Music Row stalwarts) song craft which, while they certainly doff a 10 gallon hat to the country canon, never seem constrained by Nashville tropes, old or new. Sure, there are sobbing pedal steel guitars and twanging Telecaster licks, but for the most part the sound is based on unfussy acoustic guitars, brushed drums and slivers of Hammond organ, all in service of Rose keening, compelling vocals.Jaunty opener Learning to Ride is an elegant exemplar of this approachable indie/country/pop hybrid, while the less sunny Own Side offers a different lesson in crisp, country rock economy.
