     I'm a senior at the University of Michigan, majoring in econ. Will be graduating in December. Woohoo! I have enough accounting classes to apply to any MAcc programs I want, but I think I just want to do some internships and try and find a job in business and work for a bit, then get my MBA. Then it's straight boss status in the executive level.

    You definitely want to get a few years under your belt before you even consider going back to school for an MBA or MAcc. Also keep in mind that relevant work experience is far more important to future employers than a masters degree; they want to know what you can do for them, not what you've done for yourself.

    This. That's the plan, stan. I plan on doing some internships as I am graduating early, and then working for about 5 years. We'll see where life takes me.

     Took my PCAT on Thursday, my score is ok but not what I want it to be. Going to retake it to boost my math score. I got a score in the 98th percentile for bio, maybe I should be a doctor... The math section kept my score from being much higher than it was, it sucked only having 40 min to do 48 calculus, algebra, and stats problems without a calculator.

    Now on to having a normal summer.

    there is a job fair in budapest in november for everyone doing my masters. i can apply for interviews with companies there to either get screening interviews or even get a full job interview on the spot. if i land an interview spot, they subsidize you with 120 euro (which covers the flight there more or less).

    kinda love that about my program. international, career-focused and connecting people. plus i get to check out budapest. i heard it's amazing :) stuff like this makes me stoked about being part of the program, love that feeling to be doing the right thing.

     Summer semester ended July 28th and I start fall semester this Monday. Had some difficulties getting into a math class after Sierra decided to cut 3 of the courses last week (leaving 105 students without a math class). I ended up constantly checking the schedule and eventually got in after someone dropped. Still need to purchase one of my textbooks, then I'm good to go.

     JT take an accounting class, it's really not as arduous as people make it out to be

    I got in for fall semester at Cal Poly Pomona but im gonna stick around for another year at my JC since I can knock out a few more major preps and they don't take any spring transfer applicants. Im gonna apply to CSULB and Fullerton for the fall and cross my fingers. I want the semester to get going already so I can get some new surroundings. 6 years at one school is enough

    So I need three semesters of a foreign language... I am more interested in German, I'll be better at it since I took two years in high school, it's four credits instead of five (none of which I need for my degree, just need the semesters as a graduation requirment) and it fits into my schedule better. But the other part of me feels like, compared to Spanish, it may be a bit useless. I don't want to miss an opportunity to learn something useful but if I go with Spanish I may be missing an easy opportunity to excel. Decisions...

    You live in a country that values Spanish WAY more than German. If you plan on living in the States in the long term, do Spanish.

    German is harder than Spanish and seems pretty much useless in the States.

    And THAT coming from a German who should probably defend her language ;)

     Word. You'll enjoy it, it's a good gig! Some of the labs can be a bit of a pain in the ass though if their still using the same lab manual, some answers are wrong too in the answer guides..

    You're doing environmental studies, right? Well, if you're thinking about working for any of the big NGO's or in an international capacity and are interested on getting on board with some cool research and field work I say get some Spanish down. There are so many awesome projects going on in latin America and a basic understanding of Spanish will get you ahead in the cut. If you apply for anything within the UN, IUCN, or any of the big'uns, half of the time want Spanish speakers.

    I just started school yesterday here in Oslo. There's 20 of us in the class and they had over 450 applicants. Couldn't help but feel a little smug when they told us that. I'm stoked on the program. I don't think I'll struggle with the course work but this city is so fucking expensive and it looks like I'm going to be couch surfing for quite a bit - which would be okay if public transport weren't so ridiculously expensive!

    I may have a chance of getting on board with the REDD (Reduced Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation) program for my masters project. They're looking for a graduate student to go to Indonesia to to research!! I'd be sofa king in but I think they require you to write your thesis in Norwegian and I just don't think I'm up to that standard. Going to check it out though.

     I had a prof I worked for tell me that if you wanted to do future work in enviro studies (especially if pertaining to mining) that either Spanish or Mandarin were the languages to learn.. Anna, a big congrats!!! I took a course that discussed REDD decently, good luck! Some things about REDD aren't perfect, but it's a good program! All the best!

    Spanish, ese.

    How else you gonna shred chile and Argentina?

    There are many more Spanish speakers who don't speak English than Germans (like none).

    You can get by in Germany with English, but not Latin America (or even many communities in the US).

    Or do mandarin- if you ever want to have anything to do with any manufacturing.

    Yup, environmental studies. And screw you guys for telling me what I already know! Hah, just playing. I knew it would be a stupid idea to not learn Spanish, given the opportunity, but I was kind of hoping someone would reassure me back into German as it really would make my life a bit easier... oh well, who said anything about this school thing being easy?

    Which brings me to my next point... I too am on the couch surfing program, uggggh. Got down to Boulder two days ago, spent all of yesterday in orientaion which, as boring as it was, did get me pretty stoked on my program and the school in general. Registration has to be done by tonight and is a major pain in the ass for me since I'm one of the last students to do it and A LOT of shit is already completely full. Other than that I've just been flexing nuts all over the city trying to find a suitable place to live. Did I mention before how difficult it is to find a place that isn't ridiculous expensive, in a terrible location, super shabby and run down and inhabited by weirdos? I really do need a place immediately but at the same time I'm not willing to settle. Todays search will hopefully prove interesting.
