Title: THE SCHOOL THREAD!
Post by: Bobby McConway on August 20, 2015, 05:42:21 pm
Most of you folk are definitely in some form of school, except Dylan (who transcends both time and space ♥), and with classes starting soon, I thought it'd be best to make this thread!

As for me, transferring fron AP Biology to AP Physics C was probably the best decision I've made in a while.  Sadly, that film project thing that I had planned had to have been cut off at least for now because I switched out of that class.  But on the bright side, I'm loving Physics!   Sure, some of the concepts are hard to grasp and I do miss a few questions,  but I'd be lying if I said I didn't have fun!  Homework has been up and down (Got two 100s on free response questions but the multiple choice is killing me).  Essentially, if I pass this class, and a few others, I can go straight into pure Engineering classes in college.

Still need to decide on what engineering I should take.  Part of me wants to cop out and go Industrial, but the more ambitious part wants to do Aerospace or Electrical.

Ethics: My professor's voice reminds me of the CinemaSins guy. It's gonna be hard to concentrate knowing that.

Pre-Calculus: Professor is Spanish. Kinda hard to understand, which is a problem for a math class.

Biology: Professor freaks me out. Really small, quiet lady with a snaggletooth and a weird stare. Gave us a lecture today about... something (I don't even know what), and then let us out an hour early.

Chemistry: My professor's voice reminds me of a movie trailer voice. It's gonna be hard to concentrate knowing that.

Well, the social aspects are gonna be fantastic. I have the strongest group of friends I've had in my life, my brother is gonna be in school with me for the first time ever, and the general benefits of being a senior will be great.

On the academic side, I'm worried I may succumb to a nervous breakdown within the first week.

Well, duh, you don't major in Aerospace.  You major in Mech, and try your luck in Aerospace.  If it fails, you find other jobs.  There will always be a demand for MechE.     And Florida isn't exactly the Aerospace capital of the world.

Bio sucks, but as long as you just memorize sh¡t you'll get through it. And don't listen to Cutler (and all the other upperclassmen) who say that everything down the road is impossible. It's not. You'll be fine :).

It's probably better than IPS... I'm holding my own in biology...

Then again my teacher is totally fine if our lab experiments are utter garbage as long as we understand the concepts he teaches us and as long as we know the vocabulary.

After doing three days of cross-country, I'm reminded as to why I quit it last year. I'm tempted to keep doing it just because of college stuff, but I'm not sure it's worth the added stress and the resentful relationship I'm going to have exercising because of it. Plus, I've already lettered, so I have nothing to gain here.

Oh, and my iPad didn't save half of my summer work, so now I gotta redo it :(

Hate to be so negative here, but dámn, can't say I'm looking forward to Monday....

Ouch.  I never experienced a lock-down process until 6th grade.  Can't imagine how scared the younger one must've been.

I hate summer work.  As for ECs, it depends on the college you want to go to.  For my choice of college,  it works perfectly because they don't really care about ECs.  And the only EC I had was a short stint from 10th to 11th grade as a wrestler.  Trust me, you cross country pansies don't know what true pain is.

Johnny, press 2nd and then go to 'Matrix'.  If you're confused, the button is right under Math.  The 'Matrix' wording is in blue and it isn't the main feature of that button.  From there, go to edit and set the dimensions of your matrix and enter the numbers.  Mind you, you have to do this for each Matrix in the problem.  From there, it's pretty easy. 

But I can teach you about Matrices if you're struggling.  They're actually very easy.

So I went to college today as if it were any other day. Had a chemistry lab, went to the student center for about two hours while I waited for my biology lab, went out to my car to get my books... and I notice something. All of my classmates in my biology lab are sort of congregated outside the building where my lab is. I still have 10 minutes or so before class, so I head over there to see what's up, and why they're not inside.

Turns out my professor has been arrested. We were theorizing that she's a mass murderer who killed our real professor, and just took the position from them, or that she's a drug kingpin in the vein of Walter White, or something.

School has been kind of lame so far.  I missed the move-in day with the floor meeting and everything, so the only person in my residence that I really know is my roommate.  And I've had 1 class...drawing.

Did you draw a picture of a black man killing an Asian Jehovah's Witness?
That'll be my first project.
Your next will be me killing the black man who killed the Jehovah's Witness.

My hack of a biology teacher who literally does not use teaching lessons, instead, opting out to be lazy by showing us videos and forcing us to take notes, while giving us mountainloads of work/homework thinking those videos helped us (and they probably would, if we could pay attention to them, instead of focusing too much on getting the down notes in a span of 30 seconds tops), can go drive off a fucking cliff in a Smart Car that's on fire, while being simultaneously being assraped by a walking talking cactus, and fall into a pit of spikes.

Most people I know agree with you, but I personally don't. One person getting a slightly better standardized test score than another doesn't automatically make them smarter of course, but if I think of the smartest people I know, they all do well on standardized tests. Conversely, the people who I don't see as intelligent tend to not do well on standardized tests. I guess what I'm trying to say is that of course someone with a 1950 isn't necessarily smarter than someone with a 1920, but it has been my experience that someone with a 2300 is smarter than someone with a 1600. And yeah, I know there are different ways to quantify intelligence, but still.

Seeing as they're entirely built for upper-middle class people like ourselves, I don't doubt that you wouldn't have an issue with them. They're specifically targeted for us. For a ton of other groups it's complete bullshít though. I also just plain hate the idea of being graded on "statistics", but that's just me....
The argument I've heard is mainly predicated around the idea that SAT scores are so influenced by tutors. Of course, this would benefit upper class people (and test fees definitely do) but since I never took a tutor, read an SAT book or did anything other than take one practice test, I just can't completely be down with the idea. I personally think that standardized tests benefit people who have gone to better schools and have gotten a better education but that's true for everything in the world.

Well, it's all systematic, so if you understand HOW to take the test (like with the essay structure), you'll be fine. I'm talking more about the grammar section when I talk about the corruption of the system. For example, they have questiones based primarily to mess up people from the west coast, a practice created originally to help the east coast Ivy League figure out what background the students were coming from. It's certainly gotten better over the years, but I stil hate the black and white grading scale it's based on.

Personally, I find film degrees to be a scam.  Yeah, they're giving you a grade in how well you can film so you're getting more opinions and you are introduced to others who want to enter the industry, so you can network a bit.  However, all you need to do is just pick up a camera and film.   Everything you need to learn about filmmaking can actually be found online.   That's mostly why I've written that major off my list.  Engineering is my preferred route because I do need some job security and... well, I just love Physics, Technology, Designing, etc.  I'd say that if you're looking for a **** career as a filmmaker then by all means do it.  Just be sure you have a backup plan.

That's basically what I've heard in terms of film majors. I'll probably go with an engineering degree of some kind at least for that sort of backup job potential, even though my brief stint on our high school's robotics team was a bit off-putting. Or maybe even a major in visual effects or something. A lady at my mom's old work has a son who majored in visual effects or something and does composting on movies like Side Effects, 42, etc.

Trust me, robotics is a small part of engineering.  Most likely, you'll be sitting at a desk designing on Autocad.   Only during senior/junior year will you do anything with robotics.  And if it was the people who annoyed you,  most engineering students I know are respectful to one another (other majors get laughed at though).  And Visual Effects was something I looked at and I've actually heard horror stories during jobs, mainly rotoscoping.  But I hear once you get that compositing job, there's nothing more fun.  I will say this: Engineering is not for everyone.  There's a reason it's considered one of the hardest majors in college.  You're going to have to put in 129+ credit hours (9 more than a computer science major and those are hard) and buckle down and study.  I've had friends make 30s on exams and be happy because of curving.  It is a tough discipline. 

Also, check out Computer Science with a concentration in Human Computer Interaction (actually not sure if this is the concentration)  But one of these computer science classes allows you to design and use artistic merit.  You'll learn flash animation and I think some CGI.  It's a good major with other options to branch out.  It's also in high demand.  Check into it.

I don't think it was really the people that bothered me (although there were several ignorami for sure). Just didn't click with me the way the kid that convinced me to sign up made it sound like it would. I think I could handle an AutoCad or SolidWorks based job if it was more independent (that's actually what I did on the robotics team). Maybe working with such large input was the problem. I don't really know.

I'm gonna keep Visual Effects in mind, because at this point, I think I'll take anything if it's involved in film and makes a decent living. I'll look into Computer Science though, that actually sounds like something I'd be interested in.

Yeah, I actually do think visual effects is in demand now.  I'm seeing job listings easily.

Also, let me say this.  If you do choose computer science, make sure it's Graphics and Human Computer Interaction.  If you accidentally pick theoretical or software designing, well, you just chose one of those killers.  Check your school's course on it.

Undecided. Considering something to do with film (although I've heard mixed things about film degrees themselves) or engineering of some kind.
I'm taking Communications, which can help you to get any media-related job and also encompasses film & television with it.  If it sounds like something that would interest you, I'd recommend it.

Before graduating, be sure to get internships.  Communications Major is risky, but they make bank.

Man, after hitting the hugest slump I've had in years (all B's except 1 A and 1 C), nothing was more refreshing than getting a 100 on my Macro quiz.  I finished my consumer finance project.  Just got a possible 100 on my Spanish test.  Probably passed with flying colors on my Calc quiz.  And probably brought up my Brit Lit B to an A (after getting a 0 for something I didn't even know existed).  And getting to retake my Physics test to bring that 49 to a 75, bringing my grade back to a B.

Man, life is good.

Calc is the most boring class ever.  It's a shame since I do like my teacher.  It's also so weird considering how Calc-based Physics is my favorite, despite its toughness.

My calc teacher is a type-A personality, which is awful. She grades work on a 0-3 scale and constantly gives me 2s because I don't do all 30 Calc problems perfectly.

So I just got back from my first Speech and Debate tournament. Won a ribbon (which in terms of rankings is basically 2nd place), but the name designation and design worries me.

It's called the "Superiority" ribbon, and there's a silhouette of a guy on a podium, and it looks like he's striking the "Heil Hitler" pose. It also matched very well with my blonde friend's hair color...

Dealing with questions like this:

The light isotope of lithium, 5Li is unstable and breaks up spontaneously into a proton (hydrogen nucleus) and an α particle (helium nuclus). In this process, a total energy of 3.05  10-13 J is released, appearing as the kinetic energy of the two reaction products. Determine the speeds of the proton and the α particle that arise from the decay of a 5Li nucleus at rest. (Note: The masses of the proton and α particle are mp = 1.67 ✕ 10-27 kg and mα = 4mp = 6.68 ✕ 10-27 kg.)

Okay, so m1*v1= m2*v2

So the velocities are proportional to the masses.

And uh,

(1/2)mv^2 + MGH = 3.05e-13

And since there is no potential energy,  MGH=0.

Okay... I get it.  So I add up the two masses,  and solve for v.  And then, I do a proportion.

Meteor Crater in Arizona is thought to have been formed by the impact of a meteor with the Earth some 20,000 years ago. The mass of the meteor is estimated at 5 ✕ 1010 kg. Its speed is estimated at 7200 m/s. What speed would such a meteor give Earth in a head-on collision?

I'm guessing this is conservation of momentum

So

M1V1=M2V2

So

5e10*7200= (mass of Earth)*V2

Damn, I can't remember the mass of the Earth.  I think it's 5e24kg...

I hear AP Psychology is boring as well.  And here, Gov and Econ are both required.   Econ isn't so hard, although our teacher can be a bit rude at moments.   But apparently, both Gov and Econ are supposed to make us more prepared as voters.  Not sure how accurate that is.

I feel like that grading system just incentivizes easy classes, since the gap between and A and a B is so big with no in between. And yeah, Calc's killing me too and I'm not even taking AP (although I do have a notoriously difficult teacher).

I dunno. For Year 10, they get three compulsory classes, four classes of choice, and every teacher there seems really, really nice, which is good, because this year I had the nicest teacher of my entire schooling life and I learned more than any other year combined. If I stay at Middle, I'm put in the fucking spud class with a nasty fucking teacher who has taught me like 95% of the things I learned (about math) this year, with all of the kids who think they're top dog and think they will grow up to be the next Einstein or something.

So it looks like I'm going to High School on February 4th, instead of staying at Middle School.

Enjoy 4 years of teen angst and debauchery.  In the last 4 years, a kid was killed, some people I know raped a young man, and I got addicted to cocaìne for a while (sobered up now).

America is messed up.

Did I mention this story?  Because this story made our school lose a lot of respect.  Deservedly so.

His nose was detached from his face over a pair of Jordans.
Holy crap.

Yep
And this happened the same week:

10th grade was very strange.

Just took my Korean final.

****ing ****stick on a ****dick.

It was easy as hell, obviously. But there  was this one ****ing question.

"How many letters does the Korean alphabet have?"

It was between A and B. And of course, like the ****ing idiot I am, I chose B, "41", instead of the correct answer A, "40".

Moterh****ing **** **** **** ****ity ****. Was trying to get 100% on the test. (And since I'm border lined, I think I had to, if my grade was to be raised to an A)

Damn. There are many things you can be worried about in Russia, but this isn't one of them. Whew! Come to think of it, I don't think anything like that happened in Australia either. Well, there was one time in 2013 we were meant to write a story during the lesson and I did mine about a Syrian rebel who defected back to government after his brother was brainwashed into becoming a suicide bomber. I thought it was quite good considering the time limit, but I got a D for that (pretty much the only time I got one for English). Then again, most of the class got bad marks for that too, so maybe teacher was just a hard marker.

Got my grades back for last semester. I know it's not much, but I got a 3.75 GPA, which for me is a big accomplishment. That, plus my 100% on my AP Calc quiz today, has cheered me up quite a bit. Almost enough to slack off completely for the next quiz...

Also, in Econ we watched a video where Rand Paul talked about toilet regulation.

Silly me... it actually is government now. It was econ last semester.

Was the one you saw narrated by that NPR guy, Peter Sagal?

It's a moot point for me... my teacher was the same for both classes and he's an absolute dunderhead. He was new to the school this year, and he basically sat us all down in class and had us watch videos. Then, when the videos ended, everyone got on their phones and goofed around until the period was over. We had one test (there was no final), and only two projects. Needless to say, I got an A... but I never thought I'd be complaining about how little work I had to do. I was curious about econ, but I learned absolutely nothing all semester.

Our teacher was the opposite.  He kinda pushed us to our limits with Econ.  There was a lecture everyday.  We watched only one video clip and that was from It's a Wonderful World.  Did you have AP Econ or not?

There is no AP Econ option at my school. They cut about a dozen classes the year I was a Freshman. It was a big thing. There used to be a Sci-Fi Literature class too... :(

Yeah, my AP Econ teacher was pretty tough too, although mostly just because we had to get through all of both micro and macro in one semester (or at least enough to be able to take the AP exam for both). I should add that the tests weren't that hard though and the final was pretty easy.

USC is a long shot for everyone, especially in film. But when it comes to applying to college in the arts, making yourself stand out is everything. My GPA and test scores are a bit lower than what most major film schools are looking for, so I had to make sure my essays and films stood out in the crowd. I'll be able to say more about this when I hear back from the schools, but if you need any help with applications next year, let me know.

I'm in the same boat as you, Rupert Bryant (A User Whose Opinion I Respect). I had great SAT scores but a stagnant GPA for my first three years of high school. You just have to be sure to write some kickass essays. And like Tatum said, if you sexually identify as an attack helicopter, that might score you some points in the diversity category.

If you're applying to colleges in a different part of the country from where you live, that alone can really help you in the diversity department. If you live in New York (I thought you said that once but I could be making it up), then that'll help you with USC. All colleges try and get people from across the country- I guess it looks bad if USC is all kids from California.

Speaking of California universities... the UC system can fuck itself. During the recession, they started taking more and more out-of-state students because they paid more in tuition fees. After making bank on that, a lot of Californian parents started complaining, because they were basically paying taxes to the state schools so that people from other states could attend them. Now the UCs are going to bring their in-state admission numbers back to their usual range... but only after this year, so it doesn't help me in the slightest.

Don't tell them I said this, though. I really want to go to Santa Cruz.

Got into Knox, my ninth choice of the nine schools I applied to.

If you asked me yesterday if I'd rather get into Knox or find five dollars, I think I'd have taken the five dollars. Still though, it's good to know that some colleges are actually willing to take me. Maybe this will give my ego the boost it needs to get through Friday's soul-crushing defeat when UC Berkeley lowers the boom on my dreams.

I have my doubts. Even with a 3.8 GPA last semester, I'm not even in the top 90% of people admitted to Berkeley. My best bet is UC Santa Cruz-- the average GPA there is about a 3.4. Still though... I never give up hope. I'm 2 for 2 now, but those two schools just happen to be at the bottom of my list.

If you get into USC, we'll have to meet up sometime...

Not even close to the worst Shakespeare adaptation.

My rating for it is in the 4-6/10 zone, depending on the day. Anyway, yeah, nowhere near the worst. Didn't see John's Hamlet 2000, but I did see the Australian Macbeth. Not the last year's one, but one that was made in 2007 and is set in the modern day-Australia.

The highlights include the 3 witches now being generic blonde girls that look like they're barely out of high school, and the film opens on them vandalising a graveyard with spray paint for no reason, and Macbeth's last visit to them is some pathetically filmed ****-like thing. It does have some rather inventive moments (the Banquo assassination and the "Birnam wood"), but the shoot-outs are also pretty bad. The rebel gang one in the opening just has them stand and shoot at each other point-blank for a while, with nobody even trying to get to cover.

Not necessarily. Choosing more rigorous classes was taken into account in all the schools I applied to. I even asked the people at Chapman, LMU, and USC about it.

I understand that, but taking AP and passing them means you don't have to take those same classes again in universities within your own state. Out of state schools might like that you took harder classes, but it won't matter as much as your unweighted GPA (meaning that those AP classes are looked at in the same regard as regular classes in terms of grading).

Yeah, sadly that is true. I think it depends on the school, but yeah, many out of state schools don't take the scores. My school doesn't allow for weighted GPA's anyways, so that was never an option for me.

Congrats Paaaaasche!

That reminds me, finally heard back from USC, and alas, I've been denied. Kinda a weird situation though, because a month ago the film school called me and basically said I was in as long as the actual USC academic department approved me (and when it comes to the arts, the academic department is usually willing to make exceptions). But apparently my 3.70 GPA was too low for them, even with all my AP classes.

Oh well, I guess I'm a little pissed they were such cockteases about it (been contacting me about financial aids and scholarships for weeks now), but I preferred the environment at Chapman by quite a bit, so I'll be happy to go there.

Sorry about USC Tatum, it sucks to get turned down. I was kinda pissed for a while after Wesleyan turned me down ED, since there were one or two kids who got in who I kinda would've expected to get it over (I know that sounds arrogant but oh well). You seem okay with it though, and it's great that you have somewhere else you really liked. I'm happy for you bro :).

Ah yes, the School Thread... well, I got wait-listed at Santa Cruz, but I'm not waiting around for those cunts if they don't want me. Looks like it'll be U of O for me, which is hardly a huge concession, as it was one of my top choices. I still haven't seen the campus, but if Animal House was filmed there, I'm sure it'll be all right.

Sorry to hear that, Tater. But it's always good to be motivated by vengeance. Become a famous director, win an Academy Award, and when you give your speech, tell the USC admissions office to fuck themselves. God knows that I'm already planning my revenge on Berkeley...

Thanks, I hope so too lol. I'm just waiting to hear back from one more school now (Bucknell). I would have some solid hope for getting in since their acceptance rate is higher than Colby's, but they don't really seem to take anyone from my school so I doubt I'll get in. Kinda too bad but oh well, I have a couple schools I really like that I'd be happy going to so I can't complain.

Seeing as I got through high school without attending a single dance or sporting event, I'm sure I'll be equally indifferent to any school spirit Oregon tries to throw at me. So no worries there.

And remember, not getting into a school like USC is hardly a nail in the coffin for filmmaking aspirations. I like to say that anything can be learned, but if I'm being honest, I have to say that some talents require a level of creativity that simply cannot be taught. So if you have it, I'm sure you'll do good things with it. Hell, James Cameron was a friggin' truck driver before he decided to become a director. I wouldn't worry about it if I were you.

Never even had to go to prom? Lucky bastard. I'm being forced into that this year. Not looking forward to it.

And yeah, I honestly never even saw USC as a realistic option until they started contacting me, so I'm prepared to be on my own with filmmaking lol. I just feel honored to have gotten into any film schools, tbh. My school counselors didn't think I would.

Ah. I freely admit to being a fair-weather fan only. I couldn't even tell you the name of the Golden State Warriors a year ago; even now I've only taken a passing interest in them simply because they've been kicking ass. The only sports team I've ever really followed is the Giants, aka the best goddamn baseball team on the planet.

I actually broke up with my girlfriend last year because she asked me to homecoming or prom or some fucking thing like that. The fact that a school dance sounded like a good time to her completely put me off. And yes, I'm fully aware of how stupid that sounds. But this should tell you how bad my school's dances are.

Sounds like the same with me and the UCs. I was all set on U of O, SF State, or Kenyon when they started contacting me... false hope is not fun at all, especially when you're faced with a decision like this.

Been waitlisted by NYU (calling this a win, tbh), so I've officially heard back from all my colleges.

So, my basic rundown goes:

USC: Access denied, but I emailed the woman from the film school who interviewed me, and she encouraged me to appeal (apparently I got into the film school, but didn't pass through the administration).

NYU: Waitlisted, but I know someone in admissions, so who knows what'll happen.

UW: Great local school, but it's film program isn't as strong as others. Plus, like half the kids from my high school are going there. Ew.

Gonzaga: Same as UW, but they did offer me good scholarship money.

Chapman: Great film school, great location, great vibe. Plus they offered a lot of scholarship money. Probably my #1 at the moment.

Loyola Marymount: Similar to Chapman, but didn't love the vibe as much and they offered less money.

Emerson: Great school, but it's not located where the film industry is, so that's a bit of an issue. Gave good scholarship money though.

So, what should I do?

John may finally be able to get laid if he does so.

I agree that prostitution should be legalized as well. We had a bill for it in my gov class, and while I went in a bit skeptical, the evidence for it was pretty amazing. Germany made it a taxable business, and it's done wonders for their economy.

The alternative is to make my "social justice" movement "Elect Donald Trump." I hate the man, but I'd love to see my incompetent gov teacher try to explain why a young person getting involved in politics is only a good thing if he agrees with them. If I'm lucky, that vein in his forehead might start twitching...

Is he a Bernie or Hillary?

The only way I see you justifying Trump is to show why the other candidates are worse.

He's a Bernie. 75% of people at my school (including me now, I guess) are Bernie supporters. 15% are for Hillary. The remaining 10% is made up of Trump supporters, and some of them are just doing it ironically. Some guy talked to the school paper about his support for Trump though, and I guarantee that he'll be shunned from society for the rest of his time at the school.

You joke, but the aforementioned Trump supporter actually believes this. Hence why I hate him. I've also started describing the odor he gives off as "ass and chips," and it seems to be catching on among my friends, so I have you to thank for that.

Okay, I don't have a very extreme opinion on most political topics.  Sometimes I pretend to care about stuff like abortion but honestly, I don't feel too strongly for either side, as both have their obvious flaws.  Universal health care is an exception to that...I feel very strongly about it.  I don't think that there should ever be a situation anywhere in the world where a person is turned away from receiving the maximum potential medical attention because of their income, age, or otherwise.  Hard to maintain, probably.  So hire more people.  I can pay a little bit more taxes so that people with much bigger problems than me can have a chance of surviving.  I'd like to think that other people would feel the same way if I ever got some kind of serious illness.

That's about how I look at health care and, frankly, most social issues. That being said, I'm not a huge fan of how ObamaCare is going about implementing it. It's raising health insurance premiums for the middle class through the roof, and unless you can afford the plans of the upper class, you're stuck in a far worse situation that you were with privatized health care. Again, I like how much it's doing to help to poor, but there definitely need to be some adjustments.

I completely agree with you. And the thing is, universal health care wouldn't even be more expensive necessarily. Health care costs per capita are far lower in every other developed country, which includes those with single payer systems. Healthcare in this country is a pretty inexcusable state of affairs honestly.

The ACA definitely has some good and some bad aspects, but we should really just be trying to move to a single payer system. It works in plenty of other countries and they invariably have lower health care per capita costs than we do.

I agree with the bolded statement in principle, but I'd definitely be more in favor of such an idea if we had some type of universal healthcare system. The worry I have over it is the really strong shit like heroin or meth or whatever. Stuff like weed should clearly be legalized in my opinion. Just look at the money Colorado is making off of it- people are going to smoke the stuff either way so we may as well tax it and do something good with the money. Plus, we could reduce the prison population and law enforcement could focus on more worthy things.

I basically have to write a narrative about an experience a person I know in real life had to go through to learn a wise truth in life. It's not worth that many points (It's the third part of a large overlying project that we had to do for To Kill a Mockingbird), and it'll be manageable.

My friends need to calm the fuck down about high school ending. Like, goddamn, you're all adults now, stop trying to make me feel bad about moving on with my life. Can't hold your hands forever.
So what happened to Foxy? Did he pull a Hazelrabbit like we feared?

Went on a big college trip this weekend (like 24 hours of driving between Thursday night and today), revisiting Skidmore, Bucknell and Colby. Pretty much deciding between the latter two at this point. Oh and by the way Cutler, the Colby president said they had a 17.5% acceptance rate this year so eat dick  :-*

I'm not really that far along in my thinking yet lol. One of the reasons that a liberal arts education has appealed to me so much is that I don't really know what I want to do with the rest of my life, so keeping my options open is rather appealing. An economics degree, if I end up doing that, would only help, since there are so many jobs an economics major will help you land or help you succeed in the field.

In terms of what I'm interested within the field, I'm really into behavioral economics and stuff like that. I'm not a big math person, although I don't hate it. I think that's why something like sociology or anthropology might be appealing as a second major.

Okay... first time I ever did attempt was 4th grade.  I didn't hate my home life.  I just hated school.  So my plan was to cut open a window screen and run away with no supplies and hide in the wilderness.  Yeah, not exactly a sure fire way of escape.  I got to exactly the end of the lawn before turning back.  I tried to climb up the window, but I was too short. 

I hatched a plan I thought would be brilliant at the time... I would wait for the next person to come home and I would somehow sneak in the door with them.  Stupid plan and I got caught.  Long story short, I was slapped into a near coma.

"Today is the day.  This is the day I come out to my parents as gay.  I've been longing for this moment but I fear my father will not accept me for who I am.  First, I will slowly ease in the idea and then at last, I will introduce them to my boyfriend.  His name is Jed Groff, a half Puerto Rican kid from the Bonx.  He is my love."

Later entry:

"Things went horribly.  I went up to my father and admitted my homosexuality to him.  He then reached for his shotgun and screamed that he'd 'blast the gay away'.  My boyfriend, Jed, heard the phrase and jumped in.  They were engaged in a fight to the death over the shotgun...until Jed started to kiss my dad.  They both enjoyed it and my father went down on Jed.  They tossed the shotgun at me to hold it.  I hesitated at first, but I knew what I must do.  I put the shotgun to my father's head and blasted it off.  Jed's penis was still in his mouth and as a result it was lost in the firestorm. Jed clutched what remained of his man sausage and screamed.  I put the shotgun in his mouth and said 'Suck it'.  Jed then gave the gun a blowjob before I finally put him down.  As I write this, I am digesting the collective raw brain matter of my father and my boyfriend.  I am complete."

I've narrowed my major down to either Computer Engineering or Computational and Applied Mathematics.  I have a gut feeling that I'll like Math more.  This past year, I've learned how dry regular Physics is to me, even though I do find Quantum Physics to be quite fascinating.  I just have a lack of care for Mechanics and Electricity.

And I think Computational Math will allow for more electives and give me a better chance to actually better myself at Math.  And considering, I have grown to dislike group projects over the past year, I think I'll hate Engineering.

Still, I do have this other feeling that I'll regret not choosing Engineering to showcase some pretty cool projects.

Ugh, first world problems!

I actually learnt English in Peru, in a bilingual school. There, they teached science and Social studies in English, as well as regular English classes. Also worth mentioning, the high quantity of games that I've played there that were also in English.
As for the education here in Chile, is a tough topic. Education was free of charge until the military dictatorship in the 80's privatized it. With the wealth gap issues, Education is usually better with the richest schools, and a lot of debate was sparked from this main issue in our educational system, not to mention, the student's movement that demanded the end of profiting from Education that persists to this day.

I'm writing a paper that has is to reform education to make it more privatized (I can explain later why), so I that's why I am asking.

I've came up with a silly, pretty unrealistic little plan that seems to be wasteful spending but it's AP Gov-a high school class where I don't have to put much thought in work to get an A, but I don't necessarily want to embarrass myself.

Basically, public education would be an alternative for all families and it would be delayed for kids until they're 10 years old, and then they receive a 5 year education, teaching mostly practical skills, mostly ignoring a liberal arts education.

As for private schooling:
I've came up with some ideas, like attempting to provide scholarship and federal aid opportunities for disadvantaged families to attend private schools.  And cut down on property taxes to help make it more affordable.  As for what teaching would occur, there'd be a both a liberal arts and practical education.

Also, no stupid standardized testing.

Think I can fool some kids who got into near Ivy league schools that this is a reasonable plan?

Seniors who have passed PreCalc have the choice between taking AP Stat and AP Calc. I just took Calc because I'd already had the teacher for Stat a few years ago and I hate her guts. One of my friends is in both classes, though... he hasn't had a good night's sleep since October.

Math will probably always be my worst subject. I kick ass at English to compensate for it, though. Out of the six English classes I've taken in high school, I've only gotten a B in one of them.

I got an 80.9% on my AP Calc final, which means I get my first B in a math class since December of 2014. Even though grades matter a lot less nowadays, it's a sort of spiritual victory for me, seeing as Calc is the hardest math course on campus and I'm usually terrible at math.
Opted out of AP Calc myself. Only gotten one A in a math class over the last four years. Currently sitting at a low B/B- in regular calc, which is my lowest grade, but whatever. Just hoping I don't fail it.

Math will probably always be my worst subject. I kick ass at English to compensate for it, though. Out of the six English classes I've taken in high school, I've only gotten a B in one of them.

Could you imagine if we were able to extract my math skills and your English skills and Neville's Neville skills?

The type of power that person would have...

It would be like that X-Men movie where they combine the powers of all the heroes and create Deadpool. Infuse it with Catbus' humor, Chase's knowledge of obscure movies and music, and John's encyclopedic memory for movie trivia, and we have created a supersoldier.

My lowest grade is my 88.38% in my obligatory art class. I don't think I'll be able to bump that back up to an A-. At least I don't have a final for the class.

Okay, I need to vent about this. There's a guy at my school who... well... you know how much we all hated Aaron? This guy is like Aaron times a thousand. He is a greasy-haired, pizza-faced, slack-jawed, Mountain Dew-drinking, Cheeto-eating disgusting neckbeard motherfucker who wants Trump to be president so he can get rid of all the Mexicans, gays, and Muslims. He's sexist (he once said he thought rape should be legal on private property), and women hate him, so he's 100% a school shooter candidate. In fact, he might be candidate #1. He threatened one time that "Something big would happen" on a Friday. Nothing happened. Still, it made me nervous.

All this, I could overlook. As long as this pustule of a human stayed away from me and confined his evil little thoughts to 4Chan, I'd be fine with letting him live. Now, however, a friend of mine who was doing a piece on the Deep Web for the school paper interviewed this piece of shit (we'll call him Ogre), and at one point he asked what Ogre used the Deep Web for. Ogre then replied, matter-of-factly, "Child porn."

Even better is the fact that the conversation was recorded. So now I'm sitting here with an email that contains a recording of Ogre saying that he watches CP. Is there anything to keep me from going to my counselor, playing the recording, and ruining this fucker's life?

(Side note: He also eats Taco Bell almost exclusively, giving me the opportunity to name his distinctive odor "ass and chips." Not as an offense to John, of course. It's really caught on at my school. Wherever the guy goes, people say "ass and chips" to him, and he doesn't know what it means. I might owe Cutler a royalty check or two.)

On the topic of this crazy psycho, I would like to share this story from my ex-school head teacher. But first some context: My school that I was in had this "integrative" mentality and allowed the use street clothing (most schools here actually use uniforms), & also allowed people with disabilities in class. There was pretty much Zero bullying on my time on school. Well the thing is that our head teacher, that gave us some lessons on literature on Fridays, told us this story of the worst situation she has ever been with a kid in needs. Basically, this kid had a really bad psychotic outbursts, and he would unpredictably get mad about pretty much anything, and would hit frequently hit people, including the teachers, and they had to restrain him because he was so strong. So on this time, this kid had absolutely snapped, ran across the school into an elevated platform(My school had a really weird design, there was gym on this some sort of basement, and the roof was ramp that leaded to the upper floors, giving a nice view of the city, but has a fence for security reasons ) and this psycho climbed this fence, and stood near the edge of the building, threatening to kill himself. Well, the school calls the firefighters and the other teachers taunt this kid to keep his attention until they arrive. The latter do arrive and my teachers recalls telling this kid to not jump, he gets distracted and a firefighter managed to pin him down and subdue him. He later had left the school and had a brain surgery.
Tl,DR; the story of my head teacher about a psycho kid that almost committed suicide on the school.

My thinking exactly. My dad said that I shouldn't do this simply because I want to ruin Ogre's life. I told him that he completely misinterpreted my intentions. I want to do this so that in the future, people will not have to put up with Ogre the way I have had to. Two years of minimal contact with him has all but drained my faith in humanity. Imagine what four years in college with him will do to the poor soul who becomes his roommate.

I must defend humanity from Ogre. At the very least, he should be on some sort of list.

Yeah... I was more thinking he'd probably run a CP site on the Deep Web and become involved in child trafficking when he grows up, but saving a future potential college roommate from him is also very noble.

All right, I did it. Ogre is on the record.

The best part was when my counselor looked his name up in her student directory. She looked at his photo and literally said "Ugh" out loud. And no, she's never met him before. It was a gut reaction to his greasy hair and disgusting face.

Anyway, Ogre was apparently called into the office shortly thereafter. He apparently thinks his teacher overheard the interview and reported him. So I should be fine.

I mean, we've already lost several good threads due to Kinopoisk's threats, which turned out to be utterly hollow just like I expected. If we did that as a precaution, then why not use your admin powers to delete this entire conversation? Certainly won't us much.

Ooooohh, I'd like to listen to it as well! (and it might confirm my theory)

Dude... the math simply doesn't add up.  You're in 9th Grade.  This kid and Diego are 12th graders.  There's no way you were in middle school at the time of this kid.

Yeah, and I predicted this response. For the record, I have never told a fake story to you guys.

If you really want confirmation, I'll do it. But the thing is, the interview is with two people, and the other guy says some stuff about drug use that could conceivably be used against him. I will email you the audio file, but I ask that you only listen to the part I indicate for you to listen to, and that you delete the file afterwards. This recording's only function from here on out is to take down Ogre.

Here's an expert sketch on the suspect.  If I end up not posting after a few weeks and you see a suspect that fits this look, you are in danger and immediately notify the authorities.

Some more descriptions of kid:

Short... like really short.  Shorter than me and I'm short.
Skinny as fuck
Thickest Indian accent imaginable
Huge ass 9th grader book bag
Always has this menacing stare

I'm lucky this year. My Calc final was weeks ago and my Physics final is-- get this-- optional. That leaves only AP Lit in my way, and given the 49/50 I just received on my in-class essay on Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep, I think I'm okay.

Good luck on the math. It seems to be the bane of many users on this board. Cutler should start tutoring us...

It's not that I'm bad at it. It's more that it's usually my weakest of the main four subjects, and can be a volatile grade for me. Granted, I've been at a high A for the whole semester, and I get 5% extra credit since I finished a review packet. We'll have to see.

The rest of the finals should be manageable, luckily. I already got my English final back (98%), and I scored well on the first two parts of my four part Spanish final, so after tomorrow things will get significantly easier.

I should probably get back to studying now that I think about it.

My teacher is kind of a dumbass. Not gonna lie. He's barely taught us anything all year long, and I've had to rely on the textbook and some guy's online videos (which I pirate; yes, I even pirate stuff for school). It's probably because his wife has cancer though, so he doesn't have a lot of time to make tests and stuff... still, he has a responsibility... I dunno.

I probably won't be able to explain it the best, but in my classes we usually get chapters split into two sections of vocabulary associated with a specific topic (For example, one half would be on natural disasters and the other regarding hospital terms or ways of getting injured), and each chapter has a specific section devoted to grammatical principles (Usually specific verb changes such as the subjunctive).

As for testing, it's a mix of writing in class papers, vocab/grammar tests, and speaking tests.

Eh, Makes my english classes look bad in comparison.
Btw, It would be funny for English speaking countries trying to spell "RR". An example of this would be Earthquake translated to Spanish is Terremoto.

It's not entirely my fault, tbh. The teacher has had it out for me since sophomore year. I even have proof that he's deliberately being harder on me (my brother and I made the same exact pot down to the design, and I got marked down far more than he did).

Every class is a waste of my time right now. All I seem to do is watch videos, sit in front of computers, and play tic-tactics with my friends. There are no more major tests and I only have one real final. School is basically out for me.

Most of you folk are definitely in some form of school, except Dylan (who transcends both time and space ♥), and with classes starting soon, I thought it'd be best to make this thread!

As for me, transferring fron AP Biology to AP Physics C was probably the best decision I've made in a while.  Sadly, that film project thing that I had planned had to have been cut off at least for now because I switched out of that class.  But on the bright side, I'm loving Physics!   Sure, some of the concepts are hard to grasp and I do miss a few questions,  but I'd be lying if I said I didn't have fun!  Homework has been up and down (Got two 100s on free response questions but the multiple choice is killing me).  Essentially, if I pass this class, and a few others, I can go straight into pure Engineering classes in college.

Still need to decide on what engineering I should take.  Part of me wants to cop out and go Industrial, but the more ambitious part wants to do Aerospace or Electrical.

I am no longer this optimistic about college anymore.

I think I really fucked up in my Journalism class today, guys... there's no coming back from this one.

I was sitting in my usual corner and someone said "Where's Lulu?" So just off the top of my head, I said "Who's Lulu?" Then I realized everyone was staring at me, and I understood my mistake. You see, there are only 15 people in this class, but I never bothered to learn any of their names all year. I only know them by the nicknames my friend Ignacio and I have given them. So one of them said "Hey, what are all of our names?" And I went around the room... here's what I said:

Scruffy
Mojo
White Girl #1
White Girl #2
Hillary supporter
Kinopoisk (yes, his name is Aaron... I know that one)
Starfish
Chad Kroeger
McLovin
Walker: Texas Ranger (real name is Walker; yes, I know this one too)
Matthew Perry

They're not speaking to me anymore.

Diego I'm just like you. I swear to God, on the final day of my Language Arts class, I saw some new kids I never saw before.  Turns out they were there the entire year and I had no clue.

Same with Spanish but I knew the faces.  In that class, we are given Spanish names, so like someone named John would be named Alejandro or something.  My name, get this, was Tomas.  So there's this kid in my class.  I only knew his Spanish name which was Messi (like Lionel Messi) and I would straight up talk to him half the period never knowing his real name.

I officially have two weeks of the semester remaining, after an essay, two oral presentations, a group essay and an algebra Exam.
Gotta reinforce that bunker to withstand all the bombardment that comes with the end of the semester.

Oh boy... Merced... now that was one sexy campus. Literally every building is brand-spankin' new. It's a very compact and organized school. Plus, lots of English/poli sci majors go there. The only issue is that being in the parking lot is like standing on the surface of the sun. But shit... it's a UC. Who cares?

The town is actually a bit nicer than I remembered, too. Three movie theaters total, one of which plays classic films. I think I could easily spend a year or two there...

Have to make my decision by Monday. I think I'm gonna be staying in the best state, guys.

Ha.  My History class starts at 8am.  And since I'm east coast, that means I wake up earlier.

However, I have a really wild schedule.  Got a class (Intro to ME) that starts at 5pm and ends at 6:45.  I had a feeling of pain in my stomach when I read that.  A 1 hour 45 minute class?  That's as long as a movie!  And at 5pm no less.  Thankfully, I only have it for one day (Tuesday).

That's why it's almost two hours long. A day a week class has to cover a lot more ground as opposed to classes spread out over the week.

Although sometimes I prefer the longshot classes. Both of my Law classes were almost two hours for two days a week and that was the most fun I've had in a class yet.

Wish my school offered AP Gov. But they cut a lot of APs the year I went to high school, so I ended up having to take regular Econ with a bunch of skinhead redneck fucks.

Good job on the Comp. I got the same score when I took it.

I wouldn't transfer in from another state. With Cali, it's so weird. If you're a new inhabitant, you have to get a new everything. (stuff like your driver's license) That applies especially to colleges and schools.

Okay... I need to talk about this.

So as you all know, I was going to go to U of O until I got accepted on a late application to UC Merced. Now, I needed to stay in the area due to family issues, so I decided to drop U of O and instead send a letter of intent to register at Merced. However, before I could go to orientation or anything, the housing director at Merced emailed me saying that, basically, they've accepted more people than they have rooms for at the school. So if I wanted to go there, I'd have to find off-campus housing for two years. It's way too late in the game to do that, so unless a lot of people drop out in the next month, I can't go to Merced.

Then I tried to renew my application at U of O, but I lost my dorm and all the other stuff I'd registered for. So can't go there now either.

I really want to sue the UC system. They essentially offered me a space in their campus that they didn't have. Now, my plan was always to go away for a year, return to go to community college for a year, and then transfer, so this is not the end of the world. But it's still fucking depressing. While I'm going to end up saving about $30,000, I'm going to have to wait two years to go to a UC-- a school system that, by every right, I have already gotten into.

Fuck....I'm really sorry man. You will be saving quite a bit of money though, so depending on what your major will be, this could end up as a blessing in disguise. What's your plan for the fall?

Hold on, I need to find a barf bag... *huurk* uuugh... uh, well my... *huuuuuuuurk* ... oh God... my plan... is to attend... *fluuuugh* ... community college...

Yeah. I know. But I have no other options at this point. It's a big blow to my admittedly enormous ego, and it's even more frustrating given that I actually got into a handful of good schools but now can't go to them. Just going to have to suck it up for two years and transfer. I can't believe it... but there's nothing else to do.
Sorry dude, that sucks. But I have faith in you, I'm sure you'll come out of community college at the end of two years and go to Stanford or Pomona or something:).

Haha it'll be alright man. You should come down to LA at some point and join me and Danny as we go on a hunt to find wherever the hell Tanny is hiding right now.

That'd probably make me feel better, honestly. Still angry that I don't get to leave the assholes in my hometown in the dust, though. Or at least, not for another two years. Once you're down here, though, a Trollfighters California meetup must occur.

What's so bad about community college?

Nothing in concept... still, there's definitely a stigma. I won't be graduating from it, fortunately. Two years and I'm outta there.

Sorry dude, that sucks. But I have faith in you, I'm sure you'll come out of community college at the end of two years and go to Stanford or Pomona or something:).

Funny you should mention this... the college in question has the highest transfer acceptance rate to UC Berkeley out of any com in California. Now, I would have been happy with Merced-- all the UCs are good schools-- but I have a special attachment to Berkeley. So maybe I can turn this in my favor...

This is still just mind-boggling to me. I couldn't even have avoided it. I acted on the best information available. Fucking UC system, man... I had a 3.8 GPA and they still found a way to fuck me.

Honestly, I'd much rather go to community college.  Much cheaper and less tricky as it eliminates unnecessary expenses, like housing and "athletic fees".  I swear to god, they add so many unnecessary charges in unis that I'm angry.  Can I opt out of a $2000 meal plan?  Nope.  All incoming full time students must do so.  There goes a cost efficient Ramen noodles plan.

Anyways, I hesitated about signing up for Chemistry and as a result, I missed my opportunity.  Now, I have to take Chem and Physics on the same year. Oh well...

I am doing that and let me tell you, community college was a much better choice than going straight to the big leagues. My GPA is pretty ridiculous cause it's easy and transferring is much more relaxed as compared to applying as a freshman. And the financial reason was enough for it alone.

So you'd recommend going the route where you transfer from a community college to a big league university?

If you turned this into going to Berkley that'd be awesome, Berkley's a great school for sure.

There are obvious cons to community college.  For one, it's definitely a GPA enhancer, but once you actually go to an actual university, the workload becomes far more intense. 
But If you do well enough in high school and get accepted and get some aid, I see no reason why you should not go to university.
