Why not just take the normal Pre-med route? Seems like it would've been a hell of a lot easier.

this is true but I'm a "closet nerd" and wanted to learn as much as I could! (Freshman year thought) then I realized how stupid it was, but it was too late

re: How many people are studying all night?




Already got one degree and probably know more about all things mechanical than you would ever know. Some of the kids in engineering will only ever be good at CAD and math problems(good students). I am the antithesis of them. Almost 100% kinesthetic learner(not what they do at LSU). It pains me to think how dumb they actually are and how easy of a time they have.

My memory is basically deplorable now, and I forget what I am doing from problem to problem. If it were more hands-on, I'd be all over it like a black guy on a fat white chick

I gotcha. I'm a ME major and for all I know, I might just end up I'm law school when it's all said and done.

Stick with it man... I almost quit first semester of jun year, but after that it is awesome. DE are the shit, but senior design sucks... Trust Me!

Yep. On my 4th cup and about to go for a 5th cup of coffee. Study for medical boards after a 12hr shift is simply terrible

I sat in for a few of the ME senior design projects, and half of them were laughable.

Laugh it up man, but when it's pass or fail and you put a year of work in and didn't accomplish what you were supposed to... It is nerve racking, and plenty of ppl fail

re: How many people are studying all night?


did that for the past few weeks for a math test, even called into work yesterday to study all day for it. Took the test this morning and failed the hell out of it. I've been depressed as hell about it all day.

Yeah, I basically take physics tests to get high Fs or low Ds and my homework and quiz grades have kept my average in check.

Our class average on the last test was a 53, and we had the highest average out of 9 sections. To fix that problem, they curved the grade 8 points



Eta: I used to walk out of tests pissed off, and I have gotten to the point now where I am just like "frick it"

re: How many people are studying all night?


We have no homework in this class for grades to help with bed test grades. It's all or nothing on the tests. I've been a high A math student my entire time in school and I've been reduced to randomly bubbling in scantrons. It's depressing because for the amount of time I've invested with this class, I'm not seeing a return.

I did the same thing in 2102. I made high A's in 1100 and 2101, but just couldn't catch on to 2102. I had to make something like a 50-60 on the final to pass with a C. I made it by a single point and was never more happy about a grade in my college career.

re: How many people are studying all night?


what class?

calc depends almost 100% on the teacher. I learn nothing in any of my classes anyway, but I have noticed my teacher is too smart for the class. Son of a bitch got a PhD from MIT at 26

It's just trig, which shouldn't be that big of a deal, but unfortunately I feel like I'm having to teach myself. My teacher likes to spend the whole class on theories instead of actually working examples on the board. If there is a math site or a video on youtube, chances are I've watched it this semester.

Damn man, I had to teach myself trig and geometry when I got into calculus 1. Hadn't even seen the stuff since high school. It isn't that hard

That's how I feel about this guy. He is incredibly smart, but he can't put things into terms the average student can grasp.

ex. say you wanna know the degree of 13pi/18 for the purpose of adding or subtracting angles. He needs about 7 steps to figure this out. The simple answer is to divide 180 by 18 and then multiply by 13. So I sit in class doing this for an hour and a half
