oh one more thing about UW lol. If you are anything like me prepared to be annoyed as FUCK by people's music tastes. Last week was the yearly Spring Show where they get some performers to do a concert here for free. This year they had Sol (some student here), Clipse, and Mike Posner. Clipse put on a dope performance, but no one even put their hands up during it. Then fucking Mike Posner comes out looking like he's about to cry, wearing a yellow and pink jacket, and everyone goes fucking wild. In the first song he nearly made out with his DJ (who had a pink ponytail coming out the top of his head, and was dressed in a star trek-themed cardigan) and played some dubstep. Obviously I was like "I'm out" and go to get a pic with Malice who was in a booth signing his book and shit, no one is back there so I got to shoot the shit with him for a minute which was cool but ridiculous that no one was back there. People love dubstep here, drives me fucking nuts


cosign...uw students are gay.


btw, are malice and pusha twins? lol ive always wondered...

That's true. I mean I personally wouldn't say they're small as fuck, I think a lot of the kids that complain about that were coming in expecting some big ass suite or something, kind of depends on your expectations. But all the other stuff is true, up to you but the difference is Terry isn't all freshman. Over here in Lander (in the beginning at least) everyone is trying to meet everyone so its open and friendly, where Terry isn't like that as much because there's also a lot of non-freshman that aren't trying to meet anybody. All the Terry kids I know come over to Lander to hang out. Up to you, since the buildings are connected it's not hard to live in Terry and chill in Lander, you'll just have that obstacle of not being able to meet as many people so easily.

haha I don't think so, they do look really similar though. Have you ever seen them perform? Their on stage personalities are way different, Pusha is hella energetic and has some crazy ass eyes, I'm talking Pauly D crazy. They're entertaining

Depends on your numbers. 5 years ago, i got accepted to UCLA, UCSD, UCD,Boston University with 3.3-3.4 weighted GPA and 2000 on SAT's.

It's pretty bad, but as long as you show exponential progress throughout your transcripts.. I wouldn't sweat it too heavy. Most of the attention given is to junior year and first half of senior.

Anyone know how I'd go about getting accepted to a US university as an international student? I can do study abroad from a UK school but I'd rather spend 4 years there and do it all properly. I do A-Levels which I hear are the equivalent of Freshman year at US College in terms of difficulty and I'm on B's roughly.

Would I need to take the SAT? I have no idea where to even look to get this information.

BAD but if you can pull off all A's from here on out, you can still maintain a 3.5
if you can, retake those course


Damn, I completely overlooked where he said he acquired two F's in COLLEGE blinkyeyes

I thought I was bad off with my 2 C's. Anyway, this is much worse to be blunt. You can retake those courses and they will take out your F's and factor the newer grade into your GPA, but those F's will still show up on your transcript.

You've heard of someone getting into Med with two F's? I hear to beware of anything lower than a B because that's when you start loosing competitiveness. But I guess it really does depend on the school. Just make sure you have really good grades in your science & math classes because Med school considers these two subjects in their own category called Science GPA (they also consider your overall cGpa, but science GPA is more important usually). High MCATs of course, and shadow doctors, and volunteer in hospitals. Get some good leadership spots in school too.

This is all assuming you're applying to Med.

really depends on your college tho. Two F's shows that you're (not targeting YOU) either lazy or didn't care. Most colleges will let you retake a course if it is below a C grade. Just because you retake a course doesnt mean the F gets erase, it will still appear on your transcript but the newer grade will be factor in to the total, and college may overlook your F's.

Just take your F's like a grain of salt and move on. Don't look at your past, just focuses on the future. Colleges like trend, if you can show it by pulling great grades, you can still get into grad school or possibly medical school if you decide to head towards that path.

take it from me, this semester i manage to only achieve a 2.85 GPA. i realize my mistake and am determine to aim high in my last 3 years.

Note- Grades aren't everything, make sure to be active in school's activities, internships..

GL


yeah man, i just really bit off way more that i could chew this semester & messed up with math last semester smh. I plan on aiming high starting with these summer courses i'll be taking.
And no way would I be applying for med school lol
