    Anyone else into exams now? I wrote one on Wednesday and I have three more this week on Monday/Tuesday/Wednesday.

    I hope I do well on the final in the class I mentioned above. It's regarded as one of the most difficult classes in my faculty and I managed to get 93% on both midterms. That only makes up 50% of the total grade however so the final will either make me or break me.

    I've written my calc (60%) and geology (50%) midterms so far. Calc was tougher than I thought it would be, I kinda got screwed. I stayed up all night cramming for geo, and that was pretty much the most time I've ever spent on geo, but I totally rocked the exam. Now I don't ever have to touch geo again, yay.

    Chemistry is on monday, worth 50%. Studying now, took a break to come here. Physics, wednesday, 50%. Graphics, saturday, 50%. Graphics is ridiculously easy, and even if someone wanted to study, there's not much they could do beyond practising auxiliary drawings. The final is even open book. That means engineers start drinking wednesday at lunch.

    It's a bit tough to explain. I'll just say that I'm not worried :-).

    I'll be qualified to do a couple other types of jobs anyway :-)

    Damn, I thought I could recover from my shitty midterm in 331 with my final. Apparently not :(

    My GPA is now 3.584. This semester brough it up by 0.028 and I need another 0.016 to get me to 3.6 so I qualify for the scholarship thing at school.

    I wish they used my upper gpa since it's 3.811.
