I'm entering my second year of a Hons. BMus at Wilfrid Laurier University.

I haven't decided if I want to do performance or composition for my concentration, though.

I secured a graduate job, so no postgrad studies for me right now unless they want to pay for me to do it. Money's better in the private sector anyway. ;)

Top 10 in country for GCSE Statistics taken in year 10 (no clue what actual place as just got a letter saying grats top 10)

And that's it seeming as I haven't received results for rest of GCSE's as still doing them now.

Oh I can program C++, Java, PHP (and javascript, (x)html, css)

I feel so out of place.

I'm a Law/English Literature double major specialising in postmodern narrative. I go to school here. I've completed the literature component and have 2 years left on the LLB. Probably going to specialise in something silly like human rights law.

I really want to do a physics degree.

High School Diploma, core level college classes, Armor School, Combatives level 2, Unit armorer and some other army crap that will look really good on a resume, but end up being totally useless in the long run.

Maybe it's because he majored in biochem. Pre-med students are just fucked up.

If you're in a popular major (any of the biosciences, econ, etc), even upper div classes are 100+. Yes, premeds are fucked up (I'm not one of them thankfully). I remember asking someone what answer he got on question on a midterm we had just gotten back; he told he wouldn't tell me b/c it would effect the curve somehow.

Do you feel out of place as a lit major in this forum, or out of place in your course b/c you want to do physics?

A bit of both, actually, but for the same reason. If i did physics instead of lit i'd understand a lot more of the math jokes ;-) Thankfully, most of the math geeks on here are also lit geeks, so that helps the assimilation somewhat.

I like Rice a lot, but I decided to go to Madison instead. Luckily, Madison is nowhere near as crazy (in the bad way) as the reputation might lead you to believe.
Of course, I live in the International Learning Community, so you get a somewhat different type of student than what one may normally find.

I studied Biology for two years, then switched to Chemical Engineering, then added Mathematics. I have a B.S. in each of the latter two disciplines, but was just short of enough for a minor in Biology; the whole deal took me five years. Now I'm done with my first year of Mathematics on the Ph.D. track, though I have to pass some prelim tests before I consider myself truly "done" with the first year.

I'm 1 year deep into my BS of Pure Mathematics (as of now...) with a minor in Computer Science. I'm really interested in number theory and cryptography, but it's still early and I really haven't started any focus classes and won't till third year. I plan on getting an honors degree in mathematics from University of Pittsburgh and possibly going on to graduate school from there.

And in one week I'm done with my summer class because thats the only time it's offered (branch campus wooo). I still have this 20 page paper to work on thats about the fundamental theorem of calculus. Epsilons and deltas will drive a person mad.

Our truth is only as good as our assumptions.

I have an AAS degree in Software Applications and Programming, from ITT Technical Institute. It's laughable, and I wouldn't recommend the place to anyone, but despite that, I feel successful.

I'm currently working night shift on the operations team at a company that manages 26 state benefits systems. In a couple weeks I'll be starting as Software Engineer there, making at least $55k / year. There's plenty of room to move upward in the future as well. Things are pretty exciting.

If there's one thing I'm missing, it'd be a girlfriend. There isn't even anyone I have on the horizon at the moment >.>

Ahh, time to open the 'drawer of degrees'

1. I've got a bachelors degree in Civil enginering
2. I've got a 25 hour job at an enginering company, doing on-site management and problem solving stuff.
3. I've got minors in geology and military science (there's an oxymoron)
4. I've got a quarter of my MSc
5. I've got a nice 'high school' diploma, which includes latin (which is worth jack, but looks nice)
6. I've got a private pilots licence
7. I've got a diving licence for just about everything but an armored suit

well, that's about it.
I'm made entirely of flaws, stitched together with good intentions.

Seven years of studying Electrical Engineering.
Three short months of work experience away from getting it. It has been this way for the last two years.

So I got nothing except a lot of good times and hazy memories.
