What I do is type mine in Microsoft Word and do a copy-paste. If that's a problem, handwrite it as you like and simply retype what you've written. See if that helps.

I don't know much about art schools either. I know UConn's school of Fine Arts has won several awards, but I can't really say much about it since I'm not an art major. However, UConn has an excellent AS Program, which you probably won't find at a dedicated art school. Let me know if you want more in...

So far no-one has mentioned State Colleges. Are State Colleges/Universities a bad idea for people with AS? I go to a state school (see above). Unfortunately it's not in my state, so it doesn't really help my tuition bill. But it's very good. I'm not going to redescribe everything I just said so loo...

I don't recall if I've already posted in this thread, but the University of Connecticut has a great program for students with AS. It is through their Center for Students with Disabilities and is called the SEAD Program (which itself is part of Beyond Access, which is a part of CSD, but don't worry a...

I am a freshman with AS at the University of Connecticut and am working with the Center for Students with Disabilities and the SEAD Program (for students with Asperger's) to organize a peer-mentoring program for freshman with AS. Our plan is for upperclassmen in the SEAD Program to peer-mentor a fre...

I go to the University of Connecticut, which is a big school with over 18,000 undergrads. It also has a dedicates AS Program (albeit a small one). But the point is, at a school this size, there are going to be people like you. But with 18,000 other students out there, don't expect to sit around and ...

What's wrong with a "social frat"? I was in one of those, and it was awesome. Not all frats are full of meat heads. To be fair though, we got f**** up. For better or worse it was a crash course in reality, both social and consequential. People deal and live it. 5 years after the fact I have 15 or s...

Is that considered a social fraternity? (At UConn, there are the social fraternities - aka party frats, but there are also service fraternities which do community work usually in a certain area as well as professional fraternities, which are for instance the Engineering Fraternity, the Finance Frate...

This was the first week of my second semester too. But I only had two days of classes. Monday was Martin Luther King Day (no school), Tuesday all classes were cancelled due to snow, Wednesday and Thursday I finally had class, and Friday all morning classes were canceled (snow again) and my only clas...

From what I find (not just in math but in everything) is that if you don't understand a subject after repeatedly learning it, self-studying won't help. Is there some math tutoring center at your school? Or some general tutoring center that can help with math? Even some disability programs (like the ...

Absolutely Not. He was one of the most charismatic speakers of all time. Strike 1. He had to have amazing people skills to be able to convince everyone in Germany that the Jews were evil and should be killed. Strike 2. If you watch his speeches, he makes great use of body language, emotion, etc. Str...

No. Well, theoretically yes, but that could never have happened. Consider schools, for instance. You have the blacks in one school and the whites in the other. Presumably the teachers will be the same race. But since at the time, there were far more white teachers than black teachers, we can clearly...

This somehow reminds me of the Don Imus "nappy-headed hos" scandal a few years back. Imus and Boyle may be someone tasteless with their humor in general, but both just said one stupid and totally out-of-line thing, probably without thinking, and are going to be criticized for it for a long time. Imu...

And for the record, the comment I said sounded socialist was because I said that I wasn't sure whether I wanted the UConn soccer team to play their first tournament game at home on Wednesday before Thanksgiving, or get a bye then and play at home on Sunday when I wouldn't be able to watch.
