    yeah, it's the highest ranking (fail, conceded pass, credit, distinction, high distinction) for anything that scores 84+, i think. i got an 88, which is pretty awesome

    after two years of work i'm damn glad, too

    Are you, by any chance, a real big spender as well?

    i do admit that using express post to send in drafts could not have been adversarial to my score

    Well, you looked like a man of distinction so I was curious.

    I idly wondered where VC had been, but then I realized that it was just because we could go a fucking day straight in chat without some retarded argument popping up between him and someone else.

    So yeah. I wish him the best of luck but I don't really consider him the greatest of posters when he got all annoyed and shit.

    Surely you guys have some kind of degree classification? Because that matters in all jobs you applied for. Nobody wants a 2ii. It's another word for fail. As is a 2i actually, I can say this from my smug ivory tower of first classness.

    In the US we have three types of honor distinctions at graduation (this might actually vary a bit between universities, I'm not sure), but those seem to be considered exceptionally good more than the lack of honors is considered exceptionally bad.

    Ask in the chat thread, a new thread will just get locked. It might be better to approach somebody who has a style similar to what you want, but I've no idea how much they will charge.

    Is pride not good enough? If you're looking to slack I don't think other people are going to go justify it for you.
    Pride is good enough, but I stress out about my grades to the point where it probably hurts me. I talked to the therapist person about this... I dunno, if I make a mistake on a test I spend so long thinking about it and how dumb it was and how if I hadn't made it I'd have this grade, or yadda yadda. Or writing papers, I spend so long thinking about writing a good paper that I don't end up writing a good one or kill myself in the process.

    I feel like if I thought less about grades I would probably end up with better grades... but it's so hard, when I was used to having such an easy time in HS and am surrounded by tons of people smarter than me now.

    I pooped my finals this last semester and had like a 3.7 which I thought was poopy and bad and I worried about it, and people told me it's fine... I think I set too high standards for myself.

    And my dad, trying to calm me down when I am spazzing out asks me "what the hell are you going to do with those grades anyway?"

    Which is a good question

    Which is why I asked

    Is pride not good enough? If you're looking to slack I don't think other people are going to go justify it for you.

    Also, if you're not sure if you're going to go to grad school, you're obviously also not sure that you're NOT. Always good to keep your options open.

    How good your grades need to be depends on the grad school you're trying to get into... I got in at a half-shade under 3.0 (like 2.96 or something that rounded up to 3.0). A more competitive school might want 3.5

    edit: Yeah, 3.7 is more than good enough for anything you're likely to want to do. Chill. :P

    I don't distill nothin'! And you're best off trying to make gin if you want to use science for drinking. It's just neutral spirit flavoured with aromatics(which always include juniper berries). You can use a vacuum malarkey (one of those chemistry things that makes things boil at low temps) and a few other bits and bobs to do this.

    A bachelor's is a bachelor's is a bachelor's.

    You can graduate with distinction but as it was mentioned it's more "Ooh, nice" then "Oh he doesn't have that? What an idiot." For most jobs it can only help but it won't disqualify you in the slightest if you don't have it.
