electrical engineering and a masters in physics

I had to take a 300 level social "sciences" elective to graduate. That's where the local russian jew professor tried to teach me that there is no such thing as race and a racist is one who believes in races. He then went on for the rest of the semester making us feel bad for native americans because our mascot was named after their race.

Don't bother with the accounting minor. If you're studying math and economics, you're too smart for accounting. Study more statistics and machine learning.

it's a good documentary. it's about a homeless child problem your country had, probably still has. not sure. you're growing at like 1 percent or something.

How does that help infrastructure? It makes little economic sense

good luck anon

When I was 13 in the Irish Junior cert, I devised a Science project that took water samples at different levels of a major river, and over a period of time, the samples would be tested for pollution, I was basically targeting a Big Pharma company that was situated halfway through the river's course.

The big Pharma company had just settled out of court to pay a farmer who claimed his water had been poisoned.

The project was college/university level in design.

I shouldn't have went to university in the first place but fell to the scam because 18 year old me was a good goy. I bounced around majors at first but settled into history because I know it well and didn't want to be a dropout.

Damn, I work for an Ohio law school as a "get me through college" job, I though we could have been the best of friends.

My cousin was in tort law, had his own firm in Atlanta, so it's obviously good. You should probably admit that while it's good to hope for private practice, law students should expect being treated like shit as a paralegal now.

Neat, dude. I'll be the first to lol. My father was a crim investigator(still is) when I was in college, so all four years I had a paid internship at the DA's office. Better than flipping burgers. At the time some recent ls grads studying for the bar were also doing paid internships there. I can tell you that $10/hr is not enough to pay off ls loans. Law has been "sink in a weighted vest or get rescued by a shitty raft(yacht in the case of private practice)" for a long time, though.

Also, the DA during my time interning later joined her husband in private practice and that's how I got to the position I'm in now. Good family friend.

I'm only getting 9.50 an hour and I only get 29 hours a week because of the AHA, and I'm still paying off my loans to the point that it will be 8 grand of subsidized debt at the most when I graduate. The only thing that hinders me paying off the loans each semester is studying for my certs; I keep buying materials related to security, and that costs up to a thousand for a package of books and DVDs.

I thought I had it bad, and I knew that law school is expensive, but damn.
