Electrons travel near the speed of light, not at the speed of light. They have a really small amount of mass.

 

Oh don't get me wrong they're all having fun, to be honest the horror stories are exaggerated. Then again most of my friends have been in a very competitive environment where despite the fact high school was easy they had other people with similar intellects around them to challenge each other constantly. So I guess the horror stories could originate from students who were always the top of their class with ease and expect to glide through college as well and are shocked when they learn there are people much smarted and more motivated than them, and that class grades and difficulties are based around that level of drive, they get kicked in the ass.

No, Electrons don't travel at the speed of light, not near it.

Electrical signals propagate at the speed of light.

 

Look at it this way:

Sound waves propagate at the speed of sound

While air does not.

That's why I'm looking at that boarding school... Too on the class, but never study or the like, which I need to start doing...

I'm from Seattle, now living in Bellevue (area is safer).
So is the Japanese curriculum good?
How intense is the intense class?
Haha, is Seattle that dangerous?
I'm guessing you saw where I was from?

I hear the Japanese curriculum is pretty good, although I hear that about any of the language courses offered.

 

Intensive class was pretty intense: 8:30am-12:30pm 5 days a week; I learned a lot but since you don't really use the language over a longer period of time, you kind of lose it after 2 quarters of regular classes. I would recommend the regular, 3-quarter track in that regards. I only took the intensive track because I couldn't fit it in with bioengineering class scheduling.

 

Seattle isn't that bad from my experience, but the crime rate is definitely lower in Bellevue. That plus better traffic situations and is cleaner as a whole. Shopping in downtown Seattle is a whole different experience than shopping in Bellevue, for instance.

 

Walla Walla is a cool place. Washington has a lot of "friendliest town in America" type of awards. XD

Yeah, I keep on hearing bad things about Ivy League schools for some reason. I have no idea what they are. Can anybody give me a filler?

Wouldn't be surprised if they also made the big ones. 

Good luck Hybrid!

I doubt I'll get into any of these schools. MIT is my goal right now but I'm pretty doubtful that I'll make it.

They're really prestigious schools that are basically the "top of the line" universities in the United States. They're also an athletic conference. Their application process is extremely selective so don't be disappointed if you get rejected (my graduating high school class was comprised of over 800 students, only 1 made it to an Ivy League school, Cornell). If you have a really personal personal statement, and your grades are high, and you do a lot of extra curricular activities, you'll have a better shot. Friends from a different high school say a good number of their school's students got accepted to Ivy League schools (this a lower-income, more diverse high school; I dunno if that means much though).

 

If I go to grad school, MIT is definitely one of the places I will apply to since Professor Robert Langer is a super-famous tissue engineer there and he has published a butt-load of scientific research papers. UW's Professor Buddy Ratner pretty much pioneered the biomaterials sector of bioengineering and Robert Langer is another big person in the tissue engineering sector. I met with Dean Kamen (inventor of the Segway and founder of F.I.R.S.T robotics) since he was visiting Seattle for the high school robotics competition last year and he actually used to work with Robert Langer for prosthetic and other tissue engineering projects.

 

Long story short, great schools, highly selective. Good luck applying!

My high school was a rich typical preppy suburban dominantly Caucasian school. My friend that goes to Harvard basically said the type of kids at Harvard and the type of kids at my school dress extremely similar. I didn't even bother applying to any ivy leagues because I knew I wasn't going to be able to get a full ride at any, and I didn't want to pay for any of my undergraduate schooling.

That strong scent of rosin on clothes attracts all the ladies! biggrin.gif

Sure, means you probably play a classical string instrument. Which does, to some extent, attract ladies biggrin.gif

Maybe not as effective in the US, or as (acoustic) guitars.

Simple: You're actually supporting the industry.

For now though, I'm perfectly fine at the University of Utrecht. It offers an excellent undergraduate and graduate mathematics program.

Lucky you, the number of universities worldwide that teach my program is in the single digits.

And supposedly at least two are in Canada. I can't go anywhere else frown.gif

Hm, probably people complaining that they don't make it? They're pretty much the top schools besides stanford which is on the west coast. IV's are all north-eastern. 

post #58198 of 157357

My genres are a little jumbled, I never really kept track of the BPM things but here goes nothing; (artists I can give you albums if you'd like)

 

I'll throw some bassy out for now; mostly dubstep/d&b/hardstyle stuff and a little house:

 

Skrillex, Nero, Flux Pavilion, Camo & Crooked, Netsky, BT, Daft Punk, Chase & Status, Bassnectar, Feint, Pendulum, Logistics, Spitfire (aka Porter Robinson), Noisia, Metrik, Guido, The Glitch Mob, Feed Me, KOAN sound, Gemini, Skream, Prototyperaptor, Burial, Deadmau5, The Flashbulb, Kavinsky, Crystal Castles, The Crystal Method, Skream, Bobby Tank, & Headhunterz.

 

Thats like.. 1/5 of my electronic artists collection I think? lol. In particular I think you'd probably like Bobby Tank's Vanquish, Prototyperaptor's lastest album Nostalgiarithm. Oh and Kaskade if you're looking for female vocals/electronic remixes.

 

Oh and I forgot Spor.
