Ah, I see.

Well, I study mathematics and physics. In which case the capabilities of Mathematica are more than sufficient. For both subjects you just use it to do simple things like solving and simplifying equations, or calculating the inverse of some big ugly matrix. Or perhaps just plotting a function or set of solutions to a differential equation.
I just use it for data processing in the first year of university for experimental physics. The data you get from those kinda experiments needs some relatively complicated statistical processing, but that's actually one of Mathematica's strong points.

99% of what I do is with pen and paper, or LaTeX.

A good list of them.

 

My goals are MIT, Stanford, Harvard, Princeton, or Berkeley. There might be some more.

Yeah, why not? No better way to get stuff you can't legally purchase in America...

Also, I don't know why, but when I connect my lappy to my TV (another 32" TV), the screen shows "zoomed in". Forgot the right term




Uh... Not sure how to explain. I just use the term what everybody else uses




Good for you.




Really? Never had a problem at all except this one time my torrent list was inverted, not sure why


Ah, that sucks. Look into the settings on your TV, sometimes that can be the problem with zoomed in picture. Also look at you video card control panel, look for over scan/under scan songs too...

MATLAB, LabVIEW, Java, Arduino, LaTeX, Python, Mathematica....so many programming languages to learn. That and I still want to learn basic Mandarin, Cantonese, and Japanese eventually. >.>
Ooh, sounds like fun!
So do you know anyone who has taken Japanese at UW yet?

Collegeboard.org is useful for searching for different colleges at a glance.
Come to UW! tongue.gif

John Hopkins was also in my list but it's too far away from home.
Yeah, another reason I didn't apply to any big schools out of state. Too far away. UW is also one of the top colleges in computer science in the nation as well.
Where are you from if you don't mind me asking?

You literally google

"Top _______ engineering schools"

"Good undergraduate(or Graduate) schools"

Princeton Review and USA Today have a good list.


You'll be with Mechy then
yep
-_-
He's already there, and I don't know if I even got in yet...

Which reminds me, I can always decide to do a graduate mathematics program in a foreign university, or perhaps a PhD.
For now though, I'm perfectly fine at the University of Utrecht. It offers an excellent undergraduate and graduate mathematics program.

lol those are all the IV and well known especially w/ MIT for engineering. There's ITT or something like that in India... people that apply there say they use harvard and the other IV as backups. But yeah ITT is really hard from what I heard from my friends w/ 1 getting into Upenn already with the rest waiting for the results in march/april/may. Wouldn't be surprised if they also made the big ones. 

Good luck Hybrid!

Probably gonna have to run another series of measurements. *sigh*
One series takes 4-5 hours. You have to come into a room once per 45 minutes, adjust a lever, and leave the room. While in the room the lights have to be dimmed, and you can't talk and have to walk in a very quiet manner in order not to disturb the measurement. Kinda annoying.

What experiment is that??

lololol so true

Offers? Offers from schools? Don't go to VA tech, go to UW!
I'm reserve making a joke here....

Yeah I have a few friends who took Japanese. My brother is taking 2nd year too.

I took intensive 1st year Mandarin (1st year content over 1 summer quarter).

 

And yes, Collegeboard is a good place to start. Google is good too of course.

 

I'm from Seattle, now living in Bellevue (area is safer).
