    So, my home exam is closing in to an end. It is'n the hardest thing to write an essay about reading and learning-difficulties among students in todays society. The hard part is writing 12 pages on the topic!! Luckily, I have a lot of time to finish it, which is good, concidering how busy my upcoming week is going to be!

    I'm flying home from college for a month in three days as of tomorrow!

    The downside? I got three tests to do until then.

    I see now that the circumstances of one's birth are irrelevant; it is what you do with the gift of life that determines who you are.

    Not sure if this belongs here or in the questions thread, but anyone have their perspectives on job agencies? Is it worth it or not worth it? I know there are mixed perspectives on this, but I'd like to hear others' take on this.

    Aside from that, I just love take-home finals. Gives me some cushion when it comes to conflicting plans, but better than running into a conflict.

    Just finished my calc 3 final a couple of hours ago. It was pretty straightforward - the questions weren't very hard, just time-consuming (especially Lagrange multipliers... those things are so tedious and annoying). Overall, I'm happy with how I did. Now I just have to study for history and chem for the next four days, and then I can finally enjoy my Christmas holiday.

    Well I survived my finals and I'll be going home tomorrow. Not at all pleased with how my math final went but the two I had today went over well despite one being at 8 am. At least I get to enjoy a month without any school work.

    Completely freaking out because I don't remember submitting my final project to the Dropbox which I am required to do in order to earn credit for the course, so I emailed my professor and the Dropbox says I submitted it but my iPad can't open the directions to submit it so I'm not sure if it is submitted the right way or not and so I'm freaking out I'm glad I thought of this AFTER I got out of work because I feel like they'd frown upon a complete mental breakdown and I need my job so GAAAAAH I will end up checking my email every five minutes now until my prof replies

    This semester went faster than most, and I really don't know why. I took my finals already, and I did well on all of them, so that's cool.

    Just finished my last final (group presentation on Medicaid expansion) about 25 minutes ago

    Just need to email one last thing (peer evaluations for participation for the same class) and revise another (my statement of intent for a different program to pursue a dual degree) and then it's time to start drinking.

    done with all my loose projects for senior lab.

    Just need to study for my GE class and put final touches on my quantum final. Less than 40 hours remain until freedom.

    Ugh... I hate how one bad grade will completely wreck your GPA if you haven't had many classes at a school. Like, I got an F in a finance course and my GPA dropped over a whole point :|

    Well at least the school has a forgiveness policy so long as I retake the class the following semester.

    So I'm back home and done for the semester until mid-late January. I also got my final math grade and despite my concerns of potentially having to retake that class (I bombed the second midterm math finals are math finals), I actually got a C in the class so I'm fine there. The fact that I will most likely never touch vector calculus again is good since I still have no idea how to use Stokes' Theorem. That means I can rest easy without fear of my grades since normally I wouldn't find out until like 4 weeks from now.

    Stokes' Theorem exists for pretty much justifying and proving lots of nice properties about vector fields whose curl is zero--e.g., such vector fields can be written as a gradient of a scalar and any line integral about such a field is path-independent.

    If you're going into anywhere that involves thermodynamics (at least, beyond an upper division introduction), electromagnetism (using Maxwell's Equations), fluid dynamics, and other fields that require studying vector fields, you'll probably see it again. However, there, it'll probably be introduced in the context of showing such-and-such field has zero curl so we'll instead focus on this scalar function instead.

    One more bloody final on Friday and I finish all my undergraduate classes save for just 1 left. Can't wait for this to end. Mich has just killed my GPA these last several years. Hopefully one med school will take me and I will be ecstatic.

    How's everyone's final exams?:3 Gladly, I had finished my final exams yesterday. I'm glad I had taken my eLreaning subjects successfully despite of all the server downfall and slow internet connections. My next problem is probably the enlistment for the next trisemester.

    I made at least a C on all of my finals. 2 being Bs and 2 being Cs, one C was 2 points away from being a B and the other was 4 points away from being a B.

    Working 5 days a week doesn't help my grades at all, especially when I have to work the nights before finals.

    and done with semester. the waiting game for grades begin.

    Think I did very well in quantum mechanics, probabiity, and my GEology class.

    Have no idea what to expect from senior lab.

    And second semester electromagentism is a wild-card.

    Finals are finally over and I can't wait to start enjoying my break. History final was pretty easy despite having to write a couple of essays, and I think I did well enough on my chem final to hopefully get an A in the class, but if not, I think I'll end up with a B at worst. Also found out I made 100% on my calc final. Not bad for my first quarter at university.

    Bugs me how some professors give grades like B/B- or B+/A- on some papers. It's happened on a couple of papers I've had to submit this semester, most recently on my Authoritarianism final. If it's that big a deal, then why don't they grade on a numeric scale, like a B+/A- would be an 88 or something. Eventually it'll all have to be converted to something numeric to be averaged out anyway, so why bother? It wouldn't be such a nuisance if there was a number and a letter grade (using the earlier example, if one were to get an 88 the professor would put that and then the B+/A-). I know it's a minor thing and it shouldn't annoy me this much, but I've never understood why that would even be a thing in the first place, or why they couldn't simply round the letter grade up or down, depending on how generous they felt.

    (I'm a junior in BME, plan on applying to medical school next summer) Got all my grades in, 3.93 GPA for the semester. Took 5 classes, got an A in intro to literature, A in general psychology, A in modeling of biomedical systems, A in organic chemistry I (got an A before the curve and finished that class with 104% after the curve LOL, yeah I killed that class. I think it's so overrated, but then again I lost track awhile ago of how many hours I spent doing the textbook problems over and over), and A- in Biomechanics. Best semester i've had and so close to a 4.0 which I've never achieved before. Now studying hard for the MCAT in early january.
