    not really. i don't care to be honest. I doubt you have much of an idea of how demanding the french education system is, or how it works at all, for me to take your opinion into account

    I have people that are at least 3 times older then I in some of my classes, and no they aren't the professor.

    You are all kids

    you're so lucky it's not even funny. I'm not allowed to use my comps during the school year (!@&$^% parents), and im stuck in a vb6 class.
    I really feel sorry for you. Try telling your parents you need the computer at home to practice and study, since your future depends on being good at it.
    Maybe they will give you 1 hour a day or so... but with time they will see that, omg!, he isnīt addicted to drugs not even flunking school because he uses the computer in school time ( usually what parents feel deep down, sometimes really at the surface too ).
    Maybe wonīt take long before you can use the computer a lot.
    Good luck

    Started today.
    C/C++ // know it but could know more prof is scary
    Computer Architecture and Assembly // will be studying mips architecture not x86
    Calculus // german prof seems good taken it before got a b
    Tech Writing // won't know until tomorrow
    Guitar // needed a couple credits already play and read

    It should be a moderately large amount of work but nothing that will kill.

    Still I have the first day I should be studying jitters.

    BTW I am attending the University of Montana our mascot is the grizzly bear

    first impressions of grad school:

    quantitative methods - not bad, only a 10 page research paper - do able.

    Intro to PAD - the prof is a crack smoker! how the hell do you write a 10 page "personal goal statement!" isn't a statement rather short, and not 10 pages! another 10 pages for a review of a "classics" document - pure bs. and a 20-25 research paper. freak.

    (so far, i'm going for an mpa-master's of public administration - it may soon change)
