junior, Calvin College (Michigan), age 20, studying business communications and information systems (useful computer stuff, not geeky programming), plan to move south (Florida) and go to vet tech school someday.

I don't think my grades will suffer b/c of U2. I'm going to Africa for a month in January and I made the decision that that was just too great of an opportunity to pass up and U2 concerts will take the back seat financially. I hope to see them in close cities (Chicago and Cleveland) and maybe over spring break if a) I can get down south and b) their touring co-incides with my road trip. I'm taking the minimum credits allowed to be a full-time student (anything less and I lose financial aid and scholarships). I've got one course (CAS 240, group communications/speech) that could cause problems if missed frequently (don't want to be screwing my classmates' grades) so I'll look into replacing it with something else.

I am at George Mason University in Northern Virginia. I am for lack of a better definition a Post-Baccalaureate student.

I am trying to get into med school so I am taking a bunch of science reqs I need to apply and take the MCAT. I may try and add a Bio degree while I am at it.

I graduated from University of Maryland in 1998 with a degree in Marketing and also spent one year at Washington State University before Maryland.

The spring will be a struggle I will go to some U2 shows, but seeing that I am now poor again, I do not know if I will get to as many as I want between school and the $$ situation. It will be hard for me to miss two many classes. I just hope they are not in my area when I am getting crushed with lab reports and exams or once summer session starts in the late spring.

I'm in law school at U of GA and know that I'll probably miss a day or two, what with camping out and maybe sleeping in the next day....I want to go to more than just the Atlanta show, but don't really know where that would be, and if I would have enough money, but I think I would sell my soul/body parts/whatever to get to a couple more shows, esp. if they are on my spring break

i've been meaning to post in this thread soo here goes...

I'm a senior (as of yesterday after finishing my junior year) at Arizona State University in Tempe which is 15 min from Phoenix. Came here as a Computer Information Systems major but it wasn't for me so i switched to Grographic Info. Sys.. I am getting my BS in geography with a emphasis in GIS (Geographic Information Systems). Will graduate by May 2006 and might go for the masters GIS program which is another year.

I did an internship from June through October for a proffessor in which i helped plan the securiity detail for the last presidential debate on my own campus. I basically work with maps, databases, make maps, etc all with a computer for various agencies including FBI, CIA, Secret Service. etc. We also integrated these databases with palm pilots which had a global positioning device and floor plans loaded on the palms so the officers could know where they where on ASU's campus during the event. If they for some reason, needed to know the floor plan layout, number of wings or floors, etc; theey could click on the building of where they were at (physically) on these palm pilots and this information would pop up.

Past month i been working on the Maricopa County (where Phoenix metro area is) 911 system with a co-worker on improving a mapping database to include houses and buildings addresses and whether they are vacant or not because the fire dept has no idea when they get dispatched for some reason.

heres an article that the professor i worked for was interviewed for on the ASU Presidential debate...

ASU research plays role in securing presidential debate

Supported by ASU DPS and led by Talbot Brooks, an assistant research professional in geography, a team unveiled a new integrated Geographic Information System/Science System designed for public safety use. The system gives officers new tools, ranging from maps to crime-pattern analysis, that can be used instantly in the field.

If you want to read the entire article... go here... http://www.asu.edu/asunews/research/...ole_102604.htm

this is basically the type of work i do and i love doing it!

since this thread has been revived.....

I'm a senior at Northwestern University, which is right outside Chicago. I came in as a theatre major, added French and political science, but now I've dropped all 3 of those and I'm a European History major with a focus on Ireland. I'm writing my honors thesis on Sinn Fein (will not bore anyone with details) and I'll almost definitely be at Queens University in Belfast next year for an MA in Irish Studies, and hopefully I'll go on to get a phd. There's no decent book on Sinn Fein, so perhaps I'll literally write the book on it.

I'm also a huge college radio geek. http://www.wnur.org/

Are you going to qub for next years semester (Feb - May?). I leave Queen's next year (Sept) for a year abroad and will be back again in 2006 for another year of studying. Then I'm either going to do an MA or PGCE.

I'd actually start in September '05....for awhile it looked like I'd be done this December, but I decided to write an honors thesis instead, so I'm not finished until I turn that in at the end of April.

Where are you studying abroad? And what would you be getting your MA in - French/Spanish?
