Dogs win 35-6.

True freshman Meis looks good.  He's a short-timer here.  Will be missed when he transfers to someplace that offers a degree in his major.

The schedule maker did a great job having the better teams play each other later in the season.  I know it hasn't been the great competition the last couple week, but it's nice to see Corwin, Meis and others getting more comfortable and up to speed. 

Congrats on the win!

Meis has absolutely no plans to transfer. He loves Des Moines, Drake, the coaches, the program, etc. He's a great kid who will have a great career in the blue and white.

I know "never say never," but I don't see him leaving.

The roster says he will major in pre-engineering.  Drake does not offer a degree in pre-engineering.

His options are
--change major
--fail to earn a college degree
--transfer

No one at Drake takes pre-engineering courses without the intent to transfer.

Although he could go to nearly any engineering school after next year, Drake is one of the 100 or so schools in Washington University's 3-2 program.  If he finished there, Drake would send him a bachelors degree in something (probably physics), and he would get an engineering degree from Wash U.  Who knows whether he would want that last season of football eligibility in St. Louis.

Pre-Engineering

PROGRAM OVERVIEW Drake University offers a dual-degree cooperative engineering program with Washington University in Saint Louis. Students interested in the program  can choose from either a 3+2 or 4+2 Dual Degree option. Students interested must consult with the chair of the department before registration.
Students at Drake will complete all the requirements for a Drake B.S. or B.A. degree (any major, although STEM fields are most common) and the required pre-engineering curriculum. Then, upon satisfactory completion of the coursework, students can transfer to Washington University to finish a program in an engineering field of their choice. Ultimatly, students earn two degreees: one from Drake and one from Washington University.
Engineering Degree Options include:
  • Biomedical Engineering
  • Chemical Engineering
  • Computer Engineering
  • Computer Science
  • Electrical Engineering
  • Mechanical Engineering
  • Systems Science and Engineering
Students are eligible for financial aid at both institutions.

Perhaps he is looking at the 4+2 dual degree option....
I am not a mind reader, but when I spoke with him yesterday, he has no plans to transfer.

Thank you for mentioning the 4-2 option.  Didn't know about that one.

So maybe he's willing to stay in college six years.  But someone concerned about "the financial burden of college,***"  might consider wrapping it up in five.





*** when did Drake start giving football scholarships?  lol
