That it is, a 3.0 or above in any engineering or science major is considered far more impressive than a 4.0 most other majors (I apologize in advance for any flame war this may cause.) I would say that, even in the sciences, some GPAs are worth more than others. There are ways of padding one's GPA,...

Okay, wow, that was probably the worst interview I've ever had. Even including the ones I had during the two years after my B.S. degree, before I knew I had AS or had the amount of work/lab experience I do now. Basically the interviewer was intent on disliking me, to the point where it was so bad it...

Undergrad: 3.31 with 196 credits required for my major (the highest of any major at OSU). Grad: 3.64 with 45 credits for my Masters. Both Chemical Engineering 3.34 GPA and I have taken 76 out of required 180 units. I want to get it above a 3.50 GPA though, but I don't know if it's realistic. I heard...

I've been accepted to every college/university to which I've applied, even though it's a short list: Casper College, Oregon State University twice, and South Dakota School of Mines and Technology twice (once for their undergrad ChE program and once for their grad ChE program). I only went to CC to g...

If you're interested in space flight, a good combination would be Aerospace Engineering with a minor in Materials Science (all about strength of materials, how to make quality composites, fracturing and degradation, etc.).

I may be going to my reunion next year, just because by that time I'll be driving a Mercedes, whereas the guy that was the biggest douche to me teaches middle school wrestling. How's that for humerous, the guy that constantly called me a fag now makes a living teaching young boys to fondle each othe...

#3 michael keaton is not physically fit at all in either of the two burton films, getting his ass kicked a lot, while in the comics bruce wayne is very physically fit and is kicking ass. Shortpacked made a great comic about that a few months back: http://www.shortpacked.com/comics/2011-02-02-raisea...

Comics Alliance recently did a two-part review of the original Tim Burton Batman movie, and it's pretty obvious the two guys reviewing it (big comic book fans, obviously) felt it was atrocious. Part 1 Part 2 I remember liking it as a kid, but I recently rewatched part of it and couldn't help but agr...

Given I'm already 6'3" and built like a rugby player, I'd probably end up looking like a pale Hulk. So no, probably not.

My friends are all in shock, some of they're opinions are: hiding immaturity underneath a career crisis and a desire to go back to school; lack of motivation and challenge from my current job; some think it's too late for engineering (I would graduate 28 years old); some say do it. What do you thin...

You are prejudiced in favor of classical theories. As far as I am concerned, ANY theory that predicts correctly and has not yet been empirically falsified is a winner. Nature is not obliged to present herself in such a way that man-scale concepts are the truth. Man-scale is a contingent way of unde...

And booyah, a company that works with polymers in Portland wants me to come in for an on-site interview ASAP (they've been looking to fill the position since February).

I'd rather start working immediately after school than spend another two years unemployed like I did after my undergrad degree.

What kind of engineering? I agree with cyberfox take some time off and go on a vacation, unless you cant do it financially. No matter what kind of engineering I'm sure you wont have a problem finding a job. You might have to be move though. My degree's in Chemical Engineering, with a focus in Polym...
