So you've decided what to study and where you want to go?

I've decided what. but not where.

I'm going to apply for Civil Engineering. Either at RMIT in the City, or Swinbourne In Croydon.

Wouldn't hurt to apply for both really would it?

I think quoting someone else's post is the enemy of art. Are we in agreement?

Yeah, definitely apply for both. It's always a smart idea to have a back-up in case your first choice is rejected. When I moved down here, even though I had a bloody clear idea of what I wanted and that my marks easily qualified me for it, I still added Monash and RMIT to my preferences in case the worst happened.

And most people are lazy and don't submit anything until the last week of September ...

It's fucking inconveniently located, at least from my perspective. It was my lowest preference based on that factor alone.

Well currently I'm at work (hehe postwhoreing!) I'm doing Engineering at the moment, with some Surveying work as well. Though I sort of struggle with the work sometimes (I've no education in this field, I'm on a traineeship been here for just on a year)

So work has been thinking of training me up, but that might not happen till 2010!!!...so I figure If I head to Uni and pay my own way next year I'll be better of in the long run.

Until my parents tell me otherwise....

Surveying must be sort of fun as I bet you aren't sitting behind a desk all day.

Are you relying on your parents to help you pay for college?

True enough.

Thankfully I followed up listening to that with the live Deus ExMachina that's now on PRR's myspace site.

It's over in the southeastern suburbs somewhere. If you're dependent on public transport, it's bloody hopeless.
