If I were to take two courses, I could go to UIUC. Somehow astrology (as a QII course) is relevant to being a bio major *sarcasm*. The other course would be a non-western course (I took world religions; UIUC didn't call it equivalent -- pricks; it was taught by an Christian priest for God's sake. *irony*). World religions and philosophy in general are nice to know when talking about contemporary/moral issues in biology.
Think I should take them to go to UIUC?
I did apply, and I was sent a rejection/apology letter in the mail.
Other than that, I was sent something by MIT and told to apply.
It was a... what's that called... fortune teller. Some silly oragami fortune teller.
To say the least, I wanted to burn it or eat it. I wasn't sure what to do with it.
It seems like the only reason that place is around is because of mobocrats and government investment.
Technically, even if I took calc and physics, they wouldn't let me in because I'm beyond sophomore year.
Same thing for UofC. I wouldn't be able to afford UofC, and it kind of personifies the lack of religion and morality in the midwest with many of its students spouting atheistic propaganda.
Northwestern would make me retake courses, which I don't feel like taking second semester English again: It's all subjective *insert expletive*.
I sometimes wonder if I should try to raise my standards above UIC. The school is in the ghetto. Lots of violent muggings. Loyola Chicago accepted me, but it's got a 20% graduation rate, which is disturbing.
Personally, I don't really like how the public educational system is working. There is too much bias with diversification of funds. It all makes me want to move to California.
What bothers me is that even at undergrad, it seems like there isn't too much research to do until you cover the basics. I guess I could sit around watching lab mice do funny things. But I might not be able to do a toxicology report on them.
