I study Literature at the University of Leicester... because I don't want to have a job in the future and love sleeping on cardboard boxes in piss smelling ally ways.




I also go to University of Leicester.

I quite like it. When I do a Masters I'm probably going to go somewhere a bit more exciting though.

I'm not going to be in university for at least a year so I shouldn't be posting in here, but I'm going to have to retake my SAT. I managed to only get a 1690. I didn't sleep at all the night before (bad excuse but it didn't help at all) so I managed to **** up the essay (I am very good at essay writing but I didn't finish writing it in time because I'm an idiot) and I accidentally filled out two sections in a row in the wrong place and couldn't copy them down in the correct section quickly enough.

So in short I am retaking the SAT because this is in my top fifty most humiliating experiences (it would be much higher if the SAT scores weren't a private thing).

I got a 1740 the first time I took them because I royally effed up the math and essay. I took an after school class for the math section which bumped it up 140 points. I didn't study at all for the reading and it still went up 40 points

Where are you applying?

i experimented with a french press for a little while, but i have gone back to basic drip coffee makers, mostly b/c it's easier to clean up when you're done.

University of Colorado Boulder.

So a lot of smoking.


A library that makes a good place to have sex.


Basically just enjoying life.
And business major, not really sure on a specific field though.
Maybe finance. Oh lawd.
To be vulnerable is needed most of all, if you intend to truly fall apart.

To be honest I don't know yet because I still am not sure what I want to major in (I have it narrowed down to several things, but several isn't good enough).

In the UK I'm thinking Manchester, York, Bristol*, Sheffield, and some schools like Cambrige, that I have zero chance of getting accepted into. I've basically excepted I won't get in to those so I've been looking at more places like Leeds.

*Probably not getting accepted there either.

In the US: Arizona because I live right by it, Utah because there are people there I can mooch off of while I pay my tuition, I've been looking into some campuses in California but I don't know how seriously I am taking that yet. I will probably apply for Minnesota because they are cheap for an out of state school and they have good programmes in my areas of interest. The rest of the appealing US schools are out of reach.

Edit: But once I know exactly what I want to do I'll have a better idea.

Manchester and York are both so good. Very different though so you should try and think what kind of place you wanna go to.

I honestly wouldn't want to go to Cambridge. I'd absolutely hate it.

Are you in any AP classes? Take them outside of school if your school doesn't offer them or you haven't been in any yet. UK schools care **** all about non-standardized grades.

Come to Manchester slippy. We'll slay bitches with our disgusting yankee accents

Not sure why you'd want to go study in the UK if you're in the US... Buuut, I was thinking of York since it is rated very highly and seems very nice but I can't get the grades (even though compared to Uni's around the same rank is considered pretty low)

1. it's ridiculously cheaper
2. it's 3 years
3. international experience looks good on a resume
4. the degrees are comparable in a lot of fields
5. you can get a law degree in 3 years instead of 7
#52
^That. Plus the most appealing US schools are so out of reach. Even if I had a big $15,000 dollar scholarship I could go to an equally reputable UK school for a cheaper price.

I think Manchester, York, and Bristol are my top three choices but Bristol is very selective so I don't think I have much of a chance.

Yeah, I am and I've already taken three AP classes, one of which I got a 4 in and two of which I am waiting for scores (I think I got a 4 on on and a 5 on the other). I've already looked at the requirements so if I didn't get it this year, I'm signed up for three more AP classes next year.

Also, I had a British-American teacher that I still visit every now and then (is that weird?) and he said I should go to Manchester too.

1. Interesting, how much a year average?
2. Is America longer?
3. True I guess.
4. ^
5. Thats interesting, wouldn't it be better doing 7 years than 3 or not (I'm not sure, just wondering)?

Jesus.. This is the Canadian idea of a cool library


They hyped the shit out of it

Oh and yeah I'm at the university of Calgary going into my third year of a physics undergrad degree. Hoping to do some kind of quantum information since I'm currently working in one of the quantum memory labs. It's pretty awesome


I've never seen Robarts Library in person, but I think it looks pretty damn cool.

I am currently attending McMaster University in Canada, working towards a degree in Honours Physics with an Astrophysics Specialization.

Not really sure what to minor in though. Technically I'm minoring in astronomy, but by the time I finish my degree I'll have enough math courses to declare a math minor. I was looking at doing a minor in something called "origins", which basically is an interdisciplinary approach to discovering where everything in the universe came from (including us). I was also considering minoring in political science or computer science, but I'm not sure. Everything interests me, I don't know what to pick. Any advice?

I just finished my first year here and am doing a few courses for the summer, but I'll have to say though, first year was a huuuge wake up call for me.

1. $17k p/y in UK, $25k p/y for a good school here [in my case Rutgers]. And that's on the low side of the scale. Private schools can go up to $40k-$50k a year
2. 4 years
5. No because you need to do something unrelated for the first 4 years in an undergrad program. A lot of people waste that time getting an English or philosophy degree.

If anyone cares, which they don't, I'm halfway towards a BS in Space Studies, which is actually a really cool degree, but it'll be awhile before I finish it since I can only take so many classes a year.


I care. That sounds like an awesome degree.

In that case the UK would be a good choice.

Funny how much people worry/complain about Uni here (I know I do), but from what i've heard here of the US, we're doing OK so far.

Tbh the undergrad degree isn't necessarily a waste of time. But if you know you want to be a lawyer and that's all you want to be then it doesn't make sense to do the extra 4 years

Wait genghis you're going to Manchester? I've got a couple of friends who are doing law there

Law is one of the few fields for which that isn't true. The law market is awful right now. If you were hiring, and you had a choice between someone with 3 years of post-secondary education or 7, you'd probably pick the latter.

Also, it's never wise to pigeon-hole yourself.

I'm at University of Florida, majoring in electrical engineering and minoring in physics. I got a 2130 on my SAT (710 in all three parts, strangely) and won a National Merit scholarship. I'm basically going to have zero debt for my undergraduate degree (graduate is a different story though).


Hey that's pretty much what I got when I took it, although I only got to National Merit Semi-finalist because my grades were poops.

6 AP classes?! You've already got it made in the shade. I only took three [two junior year, I wasn't planing on going overseas so I only scheduled one senior year], and I got a 4 and a 5. The conditional offer hinges on me getting a 5 on the one I took this year which I'm pretty sure I got. With 6 though they'll probably accept you outright.
