@Nosferato4

1. median is a more robust measure of 'center' compared to mean due to the right skewed nature of income. The reason y average is higher than median is also because of this reason.


2. u r reading too much into the statistics and fitting in stories.
1. No it is not.

2. Stop kidding yourself and do some real research.

Just trying to ask here,have not graduate
In NYP Year 2 right now and current GPA is 3.14 (3 semesters)
Is it a "Welcome to SIM" for me now? Or is there still chance to go into other uni? Aiming to reach at least 3.25 when I graduate

I too, have also been taught that median is always better in social science conditions which are never normally distributive. Physical science data might produce a perfect distribution, then mean would be applicable. But for salaries, median would be a much better gauge, unless of course, you can link us to some research done that shows that mean is in fact, better than median.

If the data really is distributed evenly, you can easily predict the median(50th percentile) from the 75th and 25th percentiles. By my calculations, this should give a median of 3168 for SMU's accountancy. But that is far from the real value of 2875. Meaning that the data really is skewed. There are high earners that are skewing the data.

Now we know 4 years in a statistic course gives you not just a P.H.D (permenant head damage) but a false sense of empty righteousness and douchebaggery. I hope your future company provides free lasik for you considering how blind u are esp. For some1 that deals with numbers Regularly. L2READ.

DoyouunderstandordoIneedtospeakinBinary?



the burden of your stupidity was too big& heavy that you broke a hole thru her uterus and had to be shat out or ud rip her vag1na apart :X
looks like someone is pissed to find out his WOT is nothing but meaningless text

Havok, Dark, Pleasseee read my previous posts again X_X.. I have answered to your queries there already. If I have to give another well thought out and backed-up response to both of you it would probably take 30min-1hour and the DOTA 2 Year beast event is still ongoing!! Need to farm!!

If you guys really, really, really still want a response it will have to wait till Friday/weekend!

You want to hear sugar lies or sour truth?

If you score perfect 4.0 for your 3 remaining semesters, still got chance. Otherwise... welcome to SIM.

Depends on the course. 3.25 NTU ADM still can if your portfolio is good.

they should just release the mean median mode of the salaries and perhaps even raw data to satisfy all facets of sinkies
