    Hanleylicious I no hit curveball. I no hit straight ball.

    B.A., Political Science University of Miami
    J.D., University of Miami...which is why I haven't been around much.

    If you're considering law school, don't do it. It will take your soul and your life. I miss you all...

    I'm now roughly one annual year away from earning my degrees in Aerospace Engineering and Physics-Astronomy.

    I can see the end of the tunnel.

    Can you calculate the velocity at which you are approaching the end of the tunnel?
  10. Dr Beinfest

    Dr Beinfest Larry's Little Helper

    Yes. In fact, I can calculate the velocity at which I will exit the tunnel based upon dynamic pressure readings and the geometric shape of the tunnel itself, assuming the mass flow rate through the tunnel remains the same.

    I'm contemplating switching majors or if anything going to law school at FSU. Would you say it'll be worth it?

    Speaking as a business major: change your major to accounting if you're still wanting to do business. Unless you're studying finance (or business in general) at Wharton or something like that, finance degrees aren't too valuable. I've got tons of finance majors (from all over Florida) in my MAcc cohort because there aren't any jobs out there for finance majors. In accounting, you're essentially guaranteed a job unless you totally suck. And many of those jobs aren't really 'accounting' per se (if you think being an accountant for the rest of your life is too boring)

    No trust me, other than the hour or two of design calculations, there was NO reason we had to partake in that stupid arts and crafts project.

    If you want to do finance, a strong option is studying math or something with math in it, i.e. physics. Learning the fundamentals of economics and finance is pretty easy, even (especially?) on the job.

    No. FSU for free is MAYBE okay. You have to absolutely destroy it there (top 10, law review, etc.) to get BigLaw.
