    Anybody else excited about any classes?

    I'm not sure how much fun it's gonna be, but I'm definitely going to know SO much more when I get done with this anatomy II. I took anatomy I and physio this summer, so I already feel like I know a lot, but with anat II, I'm pretty much gonna be ... supercool?

    I'm also taking nutrition, which started out great. The prof's a registered, licensed, dietician that the nursing program brings in every year for just this class. She's got some awesome stories.

    I'm also looking forward to biochem, especially in conjuction with nutrition and already having physio under my belt!!

    Any other nerdy people around that get excited when the school they pay 20k/year for actually starts applying to life, instead of obscure math principles and obnoxious papers?

    I've got External Reporting II and some Taxation classes later this year. Should be fun.

    I've got an Intro to Proofs and Problem Solving class and Complex Analysis 1 (2nd and 3rd year math classes) as well as Classical Mechanics 2 (Physics). The math ones should be alright, physics will be confusing as all hell.

    My two computer science ones should be pretty cool too: Object-oriented design and Methods in Numerical Analysis.

    So yeah, I love it when I can apply things to real life.. Oh wait... What the hell does anything I am doing have to do with real life?! Hahah

    I one of those kids that was always excited for the first day of class.

    I'm glad to finally be done with undergrad and moved on to law school. Even though I'm reading more pages a night than I ever though possible, it actually interests me and I'm finally really enjoying school.

    Now I just have to figure out my lifting schedule. Mondays, for example, I spend 12 hours either in class or traveling to and from school, blah. Plus with my 3+ miles of walking, I'm too tired to even eat.

    And no, my life does not revolve around the tv.

    There's math majors in my building ... the elevator is basically inside the nursing department, and the math dept. is on the top floor.

    We make fun of people like you, until dosage calc time comes around.

    I'm excited to be finishing my undergrad in four months. Does that count?

    I'm taking a bunch of bird courses just to finish up, so it should be pretty fun.

    how about I'm not excited for classes. Taking chemistry for the second time . I've never had a psychology class before so that should be interesting this semester.

    My first college classes start on Monday. Basically I'm more interested in how things will unfold socially and academically on a global level then to put it in terms of a single class and its relative subject.

    I'm also very much looking forward to getting rid the humanities as FAST as possible. If I keep the average course load up I'll have 136 credits and I know I won't need that many. Plus why do I give half a **** about sociology, western civilization, or university scholarship (a ****ty class which seems to be centered around forcing first year students to be social).

    Meh... hopefully the computer classes are alright.

    I am not excited about any classes this semester, since none of them are inside my major. It's all general requirements and elective fulfillment this semester. I am even less excited that my g\f leaves for school Saturday, 6 hours away.

    I'm not looking forward to school this semester.


    Spring however, I can't wait to take Advanced Synthesis.

    I just transferred the $4400 for tuition a few seconds ago.

    I'm not excited at all anymore

    I'm going into my third year of high school. The #1 thing I'm excited about is the hot new freshman coming in. End of story.

    I'm especially looking forward to Solid Mechanics and Fluid Mechanics, as well as Ordinary Differential Equations, but I'm really dreading Technical Writing/Communications. I'm not too psyched about Water Treatment Analysis either, since I find chemistry a little dull. Each of my other classes should be fairly interesting so all in all it should be a good year. I'm psyched.

    Lol... my tuition was well over 9k a semester in Undergrad. Friggin ridiculous.

    About classes... I'm personally pretty stoked about Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) 598... System on a Chip Design and Synthesis. SoC integrates CPUs, Memory, Ethernet, Video Processing, whatever onto a single die to improve power consumption, improve speed, and reduce production costs. One particular application is towards making multicore processors... though I can imagine even more compelling uses of SoC. Its a more of a practical class, where design methodology becomes incredibly important. Can't wait to dive in...

    I'm such a nerd... that weight lifts... haha.

    Numerical Analysis is a good class. How deep into PDiffEq does it get?

    Two words: Private College.

    This is the easiest way to start your future in debt. I seriously wish I went to a state college. Even if it was out of state it would have been cheaper.

    The private colleges in our area provide much better opportunities, not to mention many better contacts. Usually just being a St. Norbert Graduate in Green Bay puts you ahead of nearly all people when employment opportunities are present.

    I don't doubt I'll be relearning quite a bit of stuff. Right now I'm just focused on this last year so I can go ahead and get into grad school and sit for my CPA. I'll worry about the new stuff down the road.

    With that said, do you know of any good literature I can read on the subject?
