    Thumbs up If train A leaves the station at 9:30 with a speed of 90mph, and train B...

    Who says titles need to have anything to do with a post's content?

    Anyway, instead of bumping old threads, I'd just like to wish anyone taking the AP CS exam with me tomorrow good luck.

    Thanks, bro. I'll need it. I'm so stressed out... My whole life depends
    on these ACT tests; if I don't do good, there go my chances of
    being accepted into an Ivy League University... Then I'll have to
    kill myself.

    an ivy league university should not rule your life. even with high scores, high grades, you can be rejected, while those with lower scores and grades can get in.

    it won't be the end of the world if you don't get in one. but try, you could; but if you don't, don't take it too hard.

    Thanks. And good luck to those that are taking more after tomorrow, along with the tests tomorrow.

    screw an ivy league university. Come to Akron or Kent and become a dirty hippie. Plus, I bring my cube down to the student center and we play smash brothers all day.

    I've never figured out why you call your top universities 'Ivy League', can someone possibly elaborate?

    I was thinking of applying to MIT last year, but I took one look at the page for foreign admissions, it was something like "You should have at least $40,000 available per year for living expenses, if you are coming to the US from the UK and do not have family/accomodation here." So, I stuck to a good-old UK university.

    Someone I know actually went through with an application to MIT, and spent weeks telling everyone how amazing the admissions tutors thought he was, and how due to large applicant numbers they would have to defer his entry for a year, and he was saying that he decided he would turn them down, as he didn't want to take a year out. Then he made the mistake of leaving his rejection letter on his desk, where one of my friends saw. If there's one kind of person I hate, it's liars.

    Took the test today, it wasn't very hard at all. Hope I got a 4 or a 5.


    The best part is I took it @ 7:30 AM and now I don't have to go to the rest of my classes .

    It is called the IV league because it is IV not Ivy. It was originally 4 schools, thus the roman numerals IV.

    I didn't think it was too bad. I posted at school, then my teacher didn't like that, so I got off. But I'm not going to discuss the actual test other than how I feel with how I did. Will have to see in July, I hope I did better than I thought. I'm hoping for a four.

    I doubt anyone from the college board will barge in here and yell at you for discussing the test .

    The multiple choice was pretty easy, and even though some of the short-answers required a bit of thought before you coded them out, I thought they was even easier.

    >>Everyone, this was sarcasm. Just ignore it.

    It's funny to watch people scramble around and reply to it, though...

    BTW, you messed up your troll ethy....I said AP test...make sure you get it right next time, it adds to the credibility. Oh well, it seems people didn't even notice though, did they?

    I'm mad at myself.
    I messed around too much and didn't start buckling down and studying until about last weekend.
    I didn't know the case study at all.
    I knew the subset well enough, I had it down.
    I think I did well on the free response.
    I skipped 4 multiple choice(2 I didn't get to), people kept coming into my exam room and interupting.
    ACK!
    I really hope I get a 5, I did some math and from what I think I did, I either got a 4 or bearly got a 5.
    I'm so worried, I messed up on some stupid stuff, I didn't get enough sleep, man...
    If you ever need a hug, just ask.
