Good luck all! For those who are first-timers, don't worry, the time FLIES by.

I start my senior year on Sept. 6

I felt that way too.

And now I can't wait to go back. Funny how that happens.

You will all have a good time. Going to bed late, caffeinating yourselves early and wondering why the hell you bought any of those "recommended reading" books.

anthropology, which at least holds students' attention given the frequent nudity in powerpoint presentations

Ah yes... I've been on campus for nearly 2 weeks now. RA training and all of that. Classes here still don't start for another week though. Tuesday following this, to be exact.

Just got back from my first class, boy was that easy! We went over the syllabus, some letter from the provost about attendance, and then she let us leave (Statistics). The only problem is the prof is Chinese and it's often difficult to understand what she's saying

I have used that site to sell my used textbooks before. I wasn't sure if there was another site that was better.

quantitative or qualitative?

if its qual and you can't understand her, that could be trouble.

if its quant, ensure that she is making sense explaining the theoretical and providing clear and concise instructions whether you are dealing with a software package (such as SPSS) or utilizing formulas yourselves (i think and hope that is really rare these days).

either way, stats courses provide some of the most essential tools for successful professionals as well as grad students. even among these groups, there is considerable ambiguity and confusion surrounding statistics, their interpretation and how they are figured. being the person in the room that understands it all and can relay info in english to others is a gigantic competitive advantage.

--

the second year of my part time masters starts september 7th. i'm a little excited, but not too much.

I'm gonna be starting college classes within this next week or so, too. After graduating high school a couple of years ago and having been out of school for that long a time, it's gonna be really weird to get back into the swing of things again. But at the same time, I'm actually kinda looking forward to it, too-looks to be some really good, fun classes I can take here, and plus, it'll be nice to have something to do again.

This afternoon I'm retaking my placement test-would just bring the transcripts over from my previous school, but there seems to be a bit of a mix-up there and we're still waiting for them, and the people at the college want to get me going as soon as possible, so I'm just doing it again. But once that's taken care of, we'll get it all settled and I'll start things up this week. I'll keep the advice given in here in mind as well.

The nice thing, too, is that I'll only have some classes some days of the week, so I may have not that long a day of classes, which would be rather nice . And the campus looks really nice, too. And it's right here in town, so I'm not gonna be all alone in some new place trying to find my way around.

Good luck to my fellow college-bound Interferencers . Nice to know I'll have some people here to talk to who'll know what I'm going through (a thread idea, perhaps?). And I think I speak for us all when I say that we'll appreciate hearing any more advice that those of you who've been through this already may have.

Angela
