University of California Acceptance (in Off-topic)

I have been offered an admission to transfer to the University of California, Davis for Fall Quarter 2006 as a Physics major.

To say the least, I'm extremely excited and I can't wait for fall to begin. I just felt like sharing and maybe you can share a good college story or two that you've gone through. :)

cool, now you have to explain all the physics stuff I don't quite get.

InebriatedArsonist March 15 2006 7:41 PM EST

I wouldn't even know where to begin, SNK.

AdminJonathan March 15 2006 7:54 PM EST

cool :)

about that physics thing, though...

(philg cares more about being provocative than about being accurate, so take with an appropriate-sized grain of salt. Makes you think, though.)

Congrats! :D

That's brilliant! :D I loved every moment of my Uni time!

Fixed Jon's broken link. Then I had to fix it better.

Congrats SNK. As far as I'm concerned you can talk to me about Physics anytime. I'm not saying I'll be of any help. In fact, I know I won't be of any help, but I promise to understand half of what your talking about... maybe.

Congrats on your acceptance! I hated first year physics, but that's mainly because the prof's English was so bad that he might as well have been speaking another language.

You can talk to me about physics if you like, and I promise that I will not understand at least half of what you say... of the half that doesn't go right over my head!

Thanks, everyone. I haven't had a chance to read the site yet, Jon, but I'll see if I can get to it tomorrow. It's been a long day. ;)

Congratulations. I'm pleased for you that it's physics and not programming! ;P

I read it, I think its rather morbid, but honest. I've got my degree in Philosophy, which I think is far worse then Physics in respect to employment opportunity. Fortunately for me I took almost enough classes in Computer Science to get a minor. (I was only missing one class.)

Just remember that what you study is not what you are restricted to when it comes to job opportunities. Particularly if you do things outside the classes like join the college news paper or compete in the debate team. I was part of a college radio station and so if I wanted to I could record my shows and use them as audition tapes for a Disc Jockey position, or use my knowledge of studio equipment to be an engineer (much better pay), or use my experience as a board member to get me a management position. This is all from stuff I did outside the class, and from just one organization. But get the degree, you're apparently still just a loser without that stupid scrap of paper. :P

I'm so proud! /me pops open a bottle of champagne...and proceeds to pass glasses around...!
