What’s your gpa? Mine is 3.8 currently.
2018-03-21 02:10
1.3
2018-03-21 02:11
I hope for your sake you’re joking or wrote 3.1 wrong.
2018-03-21 02:12
hey man look at my name.... im not joking...

WTF is a GPA
2018-03-21 19:19
Grade point average. It takes your average of all your grades and puts in into a 0-4.0 scale.
2018-03-21 19:20
We only have 2 grades for my program and one that means you didn't pass the course. One is 60% on exams, the other is 80%. And it doesn't really matter much if you get the higher grade or not
2018-03-21 19:22
Having a really high gpa will gaurantee interviews and will get you opportunities in research environments.
2018-03-21 19:24
Here you don't have to have good grades, because the limit to pass the courses are already relatively high. It's all about what courses you take.
2018-03-21 19:26
You don’t have to have good grades here to pass, but passing with an 96 will get you much further than with an 80.
2018-03-21 19:28
Not always my friend. Psychology student from Colombia with a 4.5 GPA now In a mental institute. I guess, it got him much further than a degree from Colombia ever would?

Care to explain how using gpa is an inferior method of simplifying your performance?

Gpa system makes no sense, typical brainwashed muricam

I gave you a chance, but w/e.

Keep living in ur bubble
2018-03-21 03:25
Because having a score system in fucking college is ridicolous. College/Uni should be about the courses you pass and what you learn
2018-03-21 19:20
So scoring high on tests and assignments doesn’t show your proficienty in said assignments?
2018-03-21 19:22
It's irrelevant, you can't compare getting a good grade in fucking art or even business to someone in engineering school or med school for example.
2018-03-21 19:23
It’s not irrelevant if it gets you interviews,research opportunities, and credibility if you’re looking to transfer to a more prestigious school for a graduate degree.
2018-03-21 19:25
I honestly don't know how your system works, but here grades don't matter much in University. If you have a master in some engineering field or chemistry or med school or whatever, that's usually enough to get a job. If you want to do a PhD in a field that's very competitive then grades can matter, but there's ways around that too
2018-03-21 19:29
It really depends on how competitive the field is here. If you don’t graduate with at least a 3.5 in CS you will be in much less demand than someone with a 4.0. You will even get payed significantly different because of the places you won’t be even really eligible for with a 3.5.

Are you transferring into a private school from a public one?
2018-03-21 03:31
Yes. I’m getting all of the bullshit classes out of the way at a local college so I don’t have to pay a 80grand for an English class and humanities.

no
2018-03-21 04:15
From what I know, if you become a software engineer, you will be payed much better than anything with mechanical engineering, but if you’ve never even messed with code then I don’t know that I’d recommend it.

which is harder mech eng major or cs major?
2018-03-21 04:17
I’d probably say it depends whether you’re mathematically inclined or not. If you want to see if you like programming, use codeacademy. If you like it then I’d suggest computer science.

I have a similar situation I'm actually from Asia and my elective subjects are Chemistry, Biology and extended maths( advanced calculus and statistics). I kinda applied for CS for a few unis in USA, but I have never ever touched code before except like making websites in year 7-8 which wasn't really that hard ( i forgot if it was c++ or something). But yeah, do you think it would be hard for a beginner ?
2018-03-21 15:50
Alright, look at this bit of code, and if you can logic your way through it, I would say you’ll be fine. let number = 30; If(number>29){ console.log(“HelloWorld”); }
2018-03-21 17:11
Never done code but that means 30>29 so it will say hello world in chat
2018-03-21 17:14
You probably wouldn’t have trouble then.
2018-03-21 18:05
I'm doing civil engineering tho

No idea. Probably around a 3.0 or 2.9 because Calculus and Physics are bullshit in my college.
2018-03-21 04:13
Physics major?
2018-03-21 04:14
#47
 | 
North America pSilent 
No, Computer Science, but Physics is required. To give an example, I lost 21 points on my last Calculus Exam due to “incorrect notation” (All of my answers were correct, and I would have gotten a 90 if it was solely on answers). I asked the teacher how it was wrong and they said that it wasn’t wrong, but it’s based on personal opinion since a different teacher grades each exam. Thus, even though my notation was fine and all of my answers were correct, the teacher who grades my exam didn’t like the variable I used in my equations so I lost 21 points and end up with a 68 on my exam. On my actual CS courses I’m getting an A (100% every project etc...), but Physics and Math are just rigged for me these past two semesters
2018-03-21 04:20
Yea, computer science is pretty easy. Couldn’t you have taken a different lab course?
2018-03-21 04:22

 | 
North America pSilent 
Nah, these courses are part of my GUR so I have to take them. I’m pretty much done with Physics though after this course.
2018-03-21 04:26
Oh. At the colleges I’m looking to transfer to they only require you to take 2 of the same science in a lab and a bio lab.

For a GUR or are you in a science-based major?

To be honest, I’m not sure. My major is in computer science.

Depending on your college if you are aiming for a BS then you probably need more than normal, though CS usually allows for BA as well. Lab based sciences don’t seem like they are GUR though.

I was a bad child. I’m angry with my past self because I’m having to make up for it now. I’m the happiest I’ve ever been, so that’s good I guess. I’m still in a pretty prestigious place as far as school, considering graduated high school 3 years early.

85% and above is a 7, if you can maintain an average of 90 across all courses that is impressive af (unless you're an arts student)
2018-03-21 08:29
3.8 is like a 93% average.

What state do you live in? They're both on opposite sides of the country. Why don't you pick a in-state college so you can get a much cheaper tuition.
2018-03-21 15:44
There’s no presitigous cs colleges in Florida. Also, I’m going to move out to California for a year to get state tuition.
2018-03-21 17:08
Yeah Cali is super expensive tho like an apartment is 1500$ a month for a studio apartment unless your family has money I would stick to any state but Commiefornia
2018-03-21 17:16
When I move I’ll have an Associates degree, and I’ll be living near Silicon Valley so I can work at a start up and get experience. I already did the math and it’s much cheaper if I just pay for a year of living in a apartment in California compared to the full tuition rate.
2018-03-21 17:22
I wouldn't go UNLESS you have a job lined up but I mean you do you best of luck fam
2018-03-21 17:24
I have to move there regardless if I want a software engineering job.
2018-03-21 17:26
True lul
2018-03-21 17:27
In-State tuition is clutch. I pay like a 1/3 of what students from out-of-state do. Best of luck to ya man

Depends on the Uni, Monash has a GPA out of 4 like the rest of the World :L
2018-03-21 17:53
GPA doesnt matter unless you are studying mathematics where it can actually be accurately evaluated based on performance. Not like "oh i agree with your political views and give your essay an A+"
2018-03-21 08:50
GPA matters in computer science because you will get an interview if you graduated top of your class.
2018-03-21 15:33
If you are good in CS you dont go to college for dat shjt
2018-03-21 15:38
Are you mentally ill? People go to college to get a better salary, not to learn.
2018-03-21 17:06
You get a better salary on the assumption that you have learned something. You're not going to be getting a good salary for long if you haven't learned anything.
2018-03-21 17:54
That wasn’t my point at all.
2018-03-21 17:56
Fair enough.
2018-03-21 18:41
did you not know that most people in CS dont give af about your degree, only about your github content? >D
2018-03-21 19:55
You can’t even get a job at most big companies without a bachelors in cs and a large portfolio. I get that people think college is a waste, and there are alternatives routes, but if you can go to college and do well, you should.
2018-03-21 19:57
I got a job offer from several cs companies before i even started my degree in physics at age 18
2018-03-21 19:57
You’re not living in Silicon Valley, and you’re probably not getting job offers worth 170k base salary.
2018-03-21 20:01
sorry to disappoint but it will be very unlikely you are going to get even remotely close to 170k job offers right after graduation. 70k will be more realistic
2018-03-21 20:11
I didn’t say I was going to make 170k straight out of college. I meant that you wouldn’t meat the minimum requirements for big companies like google, Facebook, or LinkedIn if you don’t have a bachelors degree. I get that a lot of people think college is a waste, but you can’t refute it being a necessity to raise your life time earnings.
2018-03-21 20:24

2018-03-21 19:18
I’ve only heard of university of Toronto and Waterloo.
2018-03-21 19:19
Yeah u of t stands for University of Toronto.
2018-03-21 19:23
I’ve heard that the internship programs in Canada are pretty good. Know anything about that?
2018-03-21 19:26
Imo it just the same as doing co-op, and each uni's intern program is different, like the work schedule and the partnership etc. Some are good and some are bad (depending on the uni's reputation), top unis will get more opportunities and more top company recruitment. Lower ranking unis will still have opportunities but might need to find a placement by yourself (Waterloo is different because it's pretty much a "guaranteed" spot for an interview). By saying that it all comes down to your individual skills during the interview.
