Re: Hopeless to Harvard

I have no idea what admissions boards will think. I suppose you'd do better to talk to guidance counselors about resitting CIE, and you'd have to explain it in your college application. Don't forget...

Re: Hopeless to Harvard

Most professors have TAs who normally serve the purpose of assisting students outside of class hours, but that's why they're called 'teaching assistants'. They provide help outside of class, they...

Re: No more JPA scholarship for overseas undergraduate studies ?

Well, you're relying on rankings, which I wasn't for in the first place. And if you're doing so, you might want to consider several different rankings since they all employ different methodologies....

Re: No more JPA scholarship for overseas undergraduate studies ?

JPA keeps forgetting that the Ivies are by no means THE best in the US. I'm sure almost everyone would agree that Stanford and MIT are on par, if not better, than most Ivies - and yet they aren't...

Re: Must-Read Books!!!

Digression: The only good thing about the Golden Compass movie was Ian McKellen as Iorek's voice. :D Otherwise, it was another one of those book->movie flops.

Re: JPA PILN & PIDN 2010 Chat Thread - Results released

Hear hear. I second the privilege-not-right argument, and not because I've been brainwashed as a scholar, but simply because it is really is a privilege. Nowhere is it written that our 'right' is to...

Re: Towards US Universities Admission Fall (Aug/Sep) 2010

Great scores in the SAT do NOT in any way determine your acceptance to top universities. Just wanted to clear that up just in case some people were thinking along those lines.

It's actually 2.0? All this while I was under the impression that it was 3.5! :O
