I'm taking Pre-Calc Honors as a Junior. Am I behind?


im going to school for biomedical engineering next year, and im taking pre calc as a senior. here in new york thats considered on track so your straight.


pre calc is considered on track in senior year? I thought most schools made you take it junior year and then let you have the option of taking calc or not in senior year.


junior year most kids were taking algebra2/trig and as a senior you get the option of taking pre calc(regents or honors) or supa stats which i heard is a bitch so i avoided it.


at my school it was common to take pre-calc as a junior. by senior year, most of the kids were taking stats or calc. students who took alg2 as a junior usually don't move up to precalc their senior year.... besides me..

Anyone shooting for CSULB this year?

Yessir. Are you an incoming freshman or a transfer student? What are you trying to major in? Other than that, I've heard some pretty good things about LB State. I'm torn between that and SDSU, though. Any suggestions?

why would you choose calpoly over berkeley? one is a no-name second tier public and the other is an internationally renowned. you can always switch majors if you don't like engineering.

Well of course I would choose Berkeley over Cal Poly, but I'm just being realistic and assuming I wouldn't get into the top engineering school as an engineering major when I'm not a math genius or anything.
Is computer sciences toward the same thing as electrical engineering? Because ideally I'd love to work with computers in the future and still be successful. My parents have tried pushing the "become a doctor" speech like typical asian parents ever since I was little and it's really not even in the realm of my interests.


I'd suggest Computer Engineering; it's pretty much half Computer Science and half Electrical Engineering

I'm a first year at cal poly computer science major; I took CPE 101 because I thought about switching to computer engineering but I'm not too interested in the hardware aspect. The reason I chose cal poly is because of the "learn by doing" and its a great engineering (computer science is part of the college of engineering here)/great in general school; last quarter we made apps for android it was pretty sick imo

I didn't take Calc my senior year in high school because the teacher was a hard ass but theres hella resources here like free tutoring, office hours, study groups yadida and I pulled through with an A for my calc 1 class (equivalent to Calc AB? in hs, but we learn it here in just 10 weeks)

Yo this sounds like what I want to do. More on the software aspect than hardware. How did you grades/SAT scores look like if I may ask?

Cal Poly has a really good engineering school that is ranked higher than most UCs. The other guy has no idea lol.

school brand/prestige carries much more weight than anything else. the real world is ugly my friend. even if berk's eng program was below cpslo's (which may or may not be true depending on which ranking you look at), you'd be a fool to go to cpslo if you want to get the best job possible out of school

If we're only talking about Cal vs Cal Poly, then obviously Cal is a better school... Prestige is a factor, but not everything. CPSLO graduates actually have higher median incomes in their mid-career than all the UCs, which are said to be more "prestigious" than CSUs in general... I think they are only behind UCSD and of course, Berkeley. Polytechnic programs in general are very quantitative based, and this can be seen as an advantage to people and employers who want someone with those skills.

Ya boi fucking up in his junior year of high school, finishing the first semester with a 3.1 GPA, smh. No AP classes, no sports, no clubs and activities, no community service shit. My overall GPA in the past 3 years is probably like a 3.25. Hopefully my SAT score will be 1800+ Fuck man I just want to go instate UCONN and be in medical field/nursing smh at my lazy ass.

Looooooosing hope man fuck

If I have to go to a community college and do that 2 year transfer shit I will probably kill myself tbh.

I have noticed over the past few weeks that all the international students (chinese) at my school (OSU) wear expensive as fuck brands. Bape, CDG play, visvim, gucci, lv, evisu, and levi's fenoms I just assumed they were real since if you are studying in america you need to be pretty wealthy. On the other hand one of my buddies assumes that everything they wear is fake since they are from china. Anyone have any insight on what sup?


nah that shit is real. basically, if you see any chinese/hk fob, they are wealthy.

I'm really lost on what to do right now. Michigan State has an automatic scholarship that I need where my ACT was 4 points above what was needed but my gpa is .1 short. I gave admissions a call and they said they'd put me in a separate folder and let me know if they had enough left over money for me to get the scholarship but not until APRIL which is way too late to make a decision. My backups are Temple and LSU but I need to see Temple and I don't know how strong LSU's advertising school is.
At this point I'm contemplating on just signing up to go to MSU and crossing my fingers I can get this scholarship, and if not, I guess I will have some loans to pay off. Any advice/ anybody at lsu, temple, or msu? I would prefer to not have a bunch of money to pay off

Yeah man. I have been reading about intermediate on college confidential and heard it was a living nightmare. I'm worried because I didn't find financial and managerial accounting to be easy as fuck (which are supposed to be compared to the other classes) but not hard either, so I can only imagine what I'm getting myself into.

Kim Jong Trill, im first year and i really wish i took the community college route as well. the difference between university and high school is just so intense that unless you're really putting in the work every single day and i mean reading, taking notes, practice questions, you're gonna fuck up and have a low gpa in that first semester. i think community college + transfer helps you avoid all that shit first year students struggle with

Bump. Accepted to UCR and SFSU, so far. Both of those schools were a couple of my safeties, though. Still waiting on CSULB, UCI, UCD, SDSU, CSUF and SJSU. The wait is killing me... ;_;
