Oops, I didn't make an explicit slot for those of you currently in college for your undergrad degree--check "Other" and tell us.

Thanks everyone. Just a relief it's done.

The title was: Socio-economic status and stereotype threat: The effect of stereotype threat activation on disadvantaged groups.

Basically I argued that low SES students perform worse on standardised tests, (mine focused on the Raven's IQ test) but similarly on any altitude test such as the GRE for American master degree entry for instance, because the negative stereotype of the group produce a stereotype threat situation mediated through a mental disruptive load of anxiety when people try and avoid living up the stereotype of being 'dumb' because of their economic status compared to high SES students. That's I guess a very rough outline of it.

Congrats, Telgan.

It's a very appropriate topic, too, when those in government argue that lower SES people are there because they are dumb, or that they shouldn't have intellectually-stimulating programming. Bravo!

Condemn The Dourian Embassy was passed 6,382 votes to 3,888.

It was a good day to be a Psychotic Dictatorship for a top ranking and an Anarchy for a bottom ranking.

Most Authoritarian

top 1000: no one (although the last nation that displaced Lorettastan from the top position...let's just say it didn't end well)

bottom 1000: The Profligate Son, Arcimboldo, Black Friday.

We bring chocolates and jelly beans for your region to enjoy, ponder and reflect upon. Although, unless you're ubersparkly vampires, we don't know how much reflection you'll cast upon the treats.

“Arisen from ruins - Into an era of Glory!” - again!
Happy holidays everyone!
