    Hey Dela,

    Hmm well enjoying football season. Watching Georgia Tech trying to keep their game.

    Just finished up my Internal medicine rotation and trying to study for the second of the three national board exams I have to take.

    Heading to Savanna Georgia for a week vacation at Hilton head. I will be leaving for that in a few hours. Looking forward to getting a little golf in and just relaxing..

    My brother left for New York last weekend.. Little bummed he is gone but really happy he will be a New Yorker working as a stock anylist. Probably visit him in five weeks.

    Other than that dad turns fifty in a few days. Wow is Thanksgiving already a few weeks away? Geesh this year has flown by!

    That's been Life for me lately!!

    Praetor, what did i tell you about paying attention in class?? BOLD BOY!! *SMACKKKKK* :p

    Phantom, Ye man, sorry I didnt get to say goodbye on IRC but I'm not the only one who uses the computer here you know? it kinda sucks that everyone seems to want to use it when I get into it, u know, when u get completely out of reality and for a while, u are at one with your computer and best buds? lol

    alntht, YAY a new name! lol and of course its fine to dodge work/school for afterdawn, i do it all the time :) hehe

    Oriphus, shit man, I'm too busy for soccer I aint got a clue what is going on anymore and to be honest I dont care. Although I will go out to watch the Irish game tomorrow! :) I already said it but I'll be in university next year in W.I.T hopefully, was there on Thursday and saw the IT part, WOW is all I can say, its like a whole massive building dedicated to just computers and fun stuff :D and when i say massive, this is like a whole university in just one of about 10 buildings and they are still building lol! So hopefully my leaving cert results will get me in, which I'm sure I'll do quite well in :)

    Glad to see your still around Dela. I have been very busy my self. I know you will get into what ever University you choise.
    Orphius, 13hours!, 13hours!. When I did my Undergrad I had 36 hours a week, and now I considered 24/7. I try to keep it down to 80hours a week, but can get crazy. Things have been working so I haven't been posting in a long time. When work works, I spend most of my time working. When work is not working, I work on other work projects. Say that 10 times fast.

    Good Luck too all, and remeber Sleep is for the Dead. What dosen't kill you, only weakens you untill you eventually Die. (oh the optimus I am).

    The minimum number of hours per week at University of Waterllo in Science was about 20. The Arties had 10 to 15 and the Engineres had about 30. I took 7 and 8 credits per term, so I had around 36hours a week. One year I had 10 exams in a 15 days, that was fun. Yes I am very crazy, but all you know that by now.

    Engineering courses are like that. My exams are normally about 4 of them every semester. I know people doing 8 though. This year i have 8, but they are spread out between now and January which is good. One a week today :-(

    Unless we are referring to different University of Waterloo's the approximate cap per term (measured in credits) is 2.00. Anything above that typically requires a course override form (hehe I just had to fill one out last week).

    You say you take 7-8 credits? Only 36 hours? I goto 8 classes and I already breach the 50 hour mark. What kind of classes are we talking about here?

    University of Waterloo, Waterloo Ontario Canada
    I graduated from Biochemistry Biotechnology option. I was tring to get a physics minor at the time so loaded my self up. I missed it only by not having E&M, oh well. Five years was long enough for me and I would have needed to stay an extra term. I knew Dr Brubaker, who liked me and I never needed a form. He knew my marks and let me be crazy.

    If we are talking same Waterloo, what is it like there now? What program are you in?
    I am at University of Toronto Now, not bad but I miss the small town feel.

    Yep same Waterloo! I'm in Software Engineering ( http://www.softeng.uwaterloo.ca/ )

    The current general cap is confirmed at 2.00 credits per term with individual courses averaging 0.50 credits. Anything above the theoretical 2.00 limit requires a course override form.

    The only exceptions are for like, Engineering programs where nobody gets to choose courses untill like friggen 3A anyways so the program directors usually slot in a crapload of course with no overrides or nothing.

    For us... life is harsh :p ... only 6 classes this term though. I'm auditing 2 more (hence the 8 classes). With that load I breach 50 hours a week of lectures and 100 hours if we pump in studying. Add 20-30 hours working on the weekend and life becomes slightly 'compressed' :p Other than that, its still a cheerful place .... not enough girls in our program though :( (as of yesterday, less than 9%)

    E&M is cool... until it gets overwhelming with the friggen triple integration grrrrrrrrr .... anyways... when did you graduate?_X_X_X_X_X_[small]ASUS A7V8X-X, AMD2500+
