NEW SCHOOL THREAD WRITE ABOUT SCHOOL SHIT AND JUNK MAYBE

My current school news is that I just signed up to write the MCAT (test to get into medical school) and the only available seat in my city (or province) was for May 31st
Which works for me, but I was hoping I'd get one three or even four weeks after that

Time to start studying for that full time...next week.

How about you folks? Almost done exams? Almost done spring break? Starting a new term? What's happening...school wise...

    I'm waiting to get my grades so I know for a fact that I'm primed for graduation. If everything goes according to plan, I'll have my MLIS in a month.

    Woot.

    I dropped out of college this semester and I need to sign up for classes at my local community college pretty soon I guess.

  • SimBenSimBen Registered User regular
    Worth noting: even after the proposed hike, we'd still have the cheapest college in North America.

    Baidol may smack me down on this, but honestly, Ochem lab was a breeeze. Especially after gen chem/analytical. Do the reaction, do an NMR/meltemp, say how the reaction was supposed to work, why you think it didn't, and how you think you fucked up this week. I generally got ok products, but honestly the lab might have been easier if you were just subtle about overheating and decomposing your product each week. "Ooops, brown, must have overheated!*shrug*"

    Oh! and some girl spilled chromic acid on her hand, got realllllyyy bad burns, and it's a carcinogen! Soooo don't do that. I'm sure it melts exoskeletons too,

    $300 per year for the next five years.

    Which would make university up here go from $2000 a year to $3500 a year by 2017.

    I get it, nobody likes paying more money for shit, fine. But the government is broke and a lot of students don't realize just how good we have it.

    Also, when adjusting for inflation, the tuition has been going steadily down for almost 50 years now.

    I started off kinda ambivalent and leaning towards the students' side for this strike, but it has since moved up to full window-breaking riot status, and vandalizing the universities that chose not to take part in the strike, and one of the three big student syndicates refuses to even condemn the violence, despite the government telling them in no uncertain terms that they were willing to negotiate if they only did so.

    At this point, fuck them. No more sympathy from me.

    Me too. At least the riot seems to be on the west side of downtown. I live on the east side. I've seen them around my place but it's been peaceful over there so far.

    oh yeah there's a planned multimillion dollar cut to engineering at my campus and there's been protests and it seems like a lot of people are going to get fired

    It effects the department I'm in the most (I think?) but I'm really just incredibly uncaring, even though everyone is telling me it's a big deal

    yay being apathetic to literally everything

    that's basically the opposite of practically everywhere else, where tuition has generally been increasing faster than inflation

    They're breaking banks' windows and shit. At this point they're not even sending a message anymore. It's degenerated into a violent version of Occupy Wall Street. Banks have shit all to do with tuition hikes.

    It's only increased twice since the 60s. Assuming this one passes, it'll be the third one. Tuition was $540/year for 22 consecutive years.

    It would have been worse if I had gone to CU, where my little sister goes, instead of CSU

    She basically pays like an extra 2000 per semester so that she can live with her parents
    which is more than I paid for food and rent

    sort of silly, really
    I guess it's supposed to be a better school too, but I don't think it makes that much of a difference

    plus I've paid off all my school loans at this point, and she's like 50 grand in the hole and still has another year to go, although that's partially since she went to an out of state school for her first year

    The way most labs at large universities are set up right now, there is nothing at all difficult about organic chemistry lab.

    So apparently the riot calmed down and now the police are preparing to proceed to a mass arrest. Apparently people got up on an overpass and started tossing rocks down at cars on the highway.

    Because you know, education.

    Got one of my final grades back, B+ in Hamlet in History. Since I went into the final exam just on the cusp of an A-, I think I did pretty well. Also got an A in my History of the Guitar course, but that was a huge write-off. I'm happy for the GPA boost though.

    Next up on the docket is my Modern Drama Since WWII final Monday, and then my fucking Philosophy: Minds & Machines final on Wednesday which I'm cruising into with a 59%. FUCK YEAH.
