What the hell are you laughing about? I did my under B.S. in Aerospace Engineering, from the School of Engineering, Department of Aeronautics and Astronautics. And of course, I was at MIT when Charlie Vest was President, not Susan Hockfield.

And check this out! Dept of Aero-Astro has been voted the best in the country! The Glory!
