I wanted to be generous since I wasn't exactly sure, my inital guess would have been 60%. But I do know for a fact that only 17% graduate in 4 years, I'm personally going into 5 and probably get my masters as well. They basically crammed a 5 yr major into 4, which is quite ridiculous.



same here. i have a lot of kids who are doing it in 5 but im on track to do it in 4 :)

Ya I'm on a 5-year plan which seems pretty standard around here. At least 3 of the years were at a cheap community college. I know lots of good engineers who were lazy in highschool, I think its mostly a matter of being properly motivated and challenged. College just gets more fun as you take higher level classes, they become cooler and cooler. I've been writing code to break encryption and hacking this quarter while building custom chips to do cool stuff, so ya pretty awesome. Don't be discouraged by how crappy entry-level physics and calc can be. It gets better.

 

As for headphones its funny how what I see changes as I move around campus. Not too many Dre's honestly, but lots of skull-candy's. I live on the artsy side of campus (long story) but I've seen some grados, dennon, and a guy was wearing some Shure's at breakfast today, so an interesting spread. I might have to walk around with my a700's and see how dorky I look with all the hippies and rave kids around lol.

I just made the mistake of deciding to live in the liberal arts dorm freshman year, instead of the "boring" engineering redbrick.

 

It's hard to concentrate on physics 133 homework when the guys next door are bumping reggae, and the guys upstairs are skateboarding down the hall (and out the window).

Duuuude, why are you living in Trincest? That place is horrible. I go there once in a while at my friend's place. They're all crazy man. I would never imagine myself living there, or a dorm. I live at Cerro, which is a really sick place minus my roommates being dirty and not washing their dishes, lol.

 

What's your major?

I wouldn't want to live in the red bricks either, way too crowded and small rooms. Especially if there are 3 people crammed in there. North Mountain is so much better, that's where I lived my freshman year.
 

Cerro is nice, but I think PCV is better since the rooms are little bit bigger. Plus more counter space in the kitchen if you cook. :p But once spring comes around way too many birds everywhere, making nests right outside your windows, and chirping all the time lol. At least that's how it was last year...

 

@Tinola -

Noticed an increase in your damage lol. New headphone to go with new amp?

post #172 of 201

lol everyone is talking about their cal poly dorm experience, I was over in yosemite, in one of the quads, lets just say that is why I failed my 7am calc class second quarter. my roommates hours were wonky, started sleeping 3 hrs at night and 5 hrs during the day. not a good quarter, at all.

post #173 of 201

I'm actually impressed to see so many Cal Poly students here. I applied for Cal Poly a few years ago but their biomedical program didn't have enough open spaces and I was put on a wait list, so I just decided to go to the UW instead since it would be more convenient for me. >.<

Lol, yeah dude, the head-fi damage is just accumulation of what I bought throughout the hobby. I've spent so much towards this hobby though, it's ridiculous.

Like I said, these were accumulations of audio stuff I bought, not including the things I sold. My current setup right now is probably worth upwards $500. I need a dac badly.

I lived in Trinity 124 for 07-08. Sophomore year (for fall and winter quarter), I lived in PCV (Corralitos).

 

Last year was the first year that they opened up Cerro for freshmen; my friend was dating his super-hot/barely-legal Chem 124 lab partner, and we used to bring alchoLOL to the freshies in Cerro Islay

 

In Trinity, I was in a triple with a hyper-metrosexual/borderline gay Afghani drug dealer and a wannabe DJ. THAT was an experience.

UCSC did this weird thing where all of the new transfers have to live in a particular dorm, it just happens to be where all the hippies are.

My favorite is the impromptu soccer games where my door is the goal. Also, I named my neighbor "Roberto" after the crazy robot from futurama:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n_PfhMQ1qpE

 

Yes, he does sound like that, and no, he does not have any volume control on his voice. Pair that with his guitar amp which is always set to 11, I was pretty miserable. BUUUUUT: I got my Klipsch s4's a while ago and haven't had any problems since. The world is a more beautiful place when all you can hear is Vivaldi or Opeth. Those HP's got me into head-fi and I am eternally grateful, my wallet isn't too angry yet, but it will be soon *sigh*.

 

*Damage: ~$200* It seems so small compared to other head-fiers...

I was in Yosemite Tower 2 for 07-08. Place was a little cramped but I liked it. Moved off campus after that.
