If my calculations are correct, I'm done with the challenge! I just earned another 27 universities, bringing my population to 73,000+ with my unused CAS! I'm still going to finish out this round and add enough CAS families so that my "official" population is over 50,000!

This took 3 in-game years, and almost 5 real life years! :D

What do you classify as in-game years pnkpnthr?

And congrats! Never thought of more then a few universities, now I see how that would be useful to get SM up.

Is food poisoning considered an illness?

On the Sims Wikia, it is listed on the Illness page in the Sims 2 section. So I would say that it counts as an illness.

For the first time ever, I have unlocked a university (thanks to a tramp sim that was charging $25,000 a ticket to her dance club). I only have two teens who are going. Does a dorm/rental count as another household or only when they return home?

I'm pretty annoyed with my people overall. They are more interested in babies than topping business. I have four level 10 businesses, but no tycoons. I can boast that one household gave me twins and two sets of quads. Yes. Thanks game.

I think my population is now 702 (74 playables +4 graves) and they all descend from my original five families as I started with Nepheris' version of the rules, but switched to a different set in round 3. I think in round 5 everyone is getting birth control and locked in separate rooms for extended periods of time.

I am also sitting at 3 fires, 1 electrocution and 0 burglaries, which really, really stinks.

Congrats on the University! I just discovered from a BaCC I saw posted on Tumblr, that bags of money wished for with the Genie are good for attracting the burglar, though I haven't had a chance to try it myself.
