Sounds like a bright future ahead! He can go the Rebel route and design boutique guitar amps, or go the refined and rich route by designing power amps for Fabio, or even go the epic route and help an architect figure out a custom electronic layout for a landmark building. And on the side he can take a break and build any amp you like out of perf board as long as you print out the layout from the internet

Since he has consistantly gone on to score in the 90's in every single marking period in all things math/science/electronics related I guess the boy knew what he was doing after all and has a bright future ahead of him.

Damn cool so I am beating my own chest and bragging a bit even though he did all the work figuring good genes must account for something so I can also take a bow

I think its somewhere around 20% Genes, 80% how he was brought up.

Congrats Dad, and Good work, son!

Hey, I never graded below A in anything up to high school (except that one maths a-level I forgot to show up for) and I got a good 2:1 from Cambridge University. Now I live in a tiny apartment and earn less than $20k a year. I'm happy exactly like this, but depending on your definition of "bright future", don't relax yet

"Bright future" is wherever you are happy.The Comfort Zone we all seek out.
Better a poor man laughing than a rich man with misery for company though being miserable already I would not mind some extra loot to keep me company in my misery

Rick, you done good with that boy.

You and Mrs Rickmonster are quite right to be proud. I agree with whoever said that it is more the parenting than the genes. You two did a good job with Jeff. Although I am sure that his mothers smart genes did help him along.

Old thread resurrected but the little monster did it again

I just got the numbers and am expecting the "old news" letter from the city mayor again with the famable "congrats".

The numbers are encouraging if only because of the strong subjects.I see a 98 in geometry,a 96 in analog electronics and in general mid to upper 90's across the board in all things math and science.Tells me he is a STRONG thinker which I went out of my way to make all my boys but this is the first one to scare the begeezers out of me because he is not only as smart as me but is the only one I have to work overtime with in a battle of the wise cracks.The boy actually holds his own and most adults can not say that without lying

My youngest and only just made another big poop! Hopefully she can grow up to do more important things in her life as your child has! But, for now, I'm happy with the big poops...

Congrats to a great kid and father. Didya get one of those "My Child Is An Honor Student at (school name)?" Unfortunately, my parents liked their car bumpers nice and clean

Good job for you and your son, he sounds like a great kid. You're cool for bragging about your son's academic achievements. It seems where I live its ok to brag about your child's athletic performance, but no one wants to hear about a child's academic prowess.
