As part of my Quantitative Analysis in Political Science course, which is really a research design class focused on statistics (as opposed to the other way around), we design a poll that gets administered to a sample of Bowdoin students. We ask about a whole range of issues important to students on campus, along with some fun questions. This year we asked (under the category of fun questions) what school students would rather attend if not Bowdoin: Colby or Bates. There is a lot of history and rivalry among the three colleges. A Colby or Bates bash in class always brings hoots and hollers. Here are the results:
Results are still coming in, but one wonders, who is Bush and who is Gore in this race?
