    How old is too old?

    You're not too old. I'm 32. I went back to finish school at 29. I'm 2 semesters away from my BSc (graduate after fall 2012) but I'll likely have to wait until 2013 for grad school.

    Took my General GRE today

    Verbal: 440 Quantitative: 730 I registered for the exam a month ago and intended to study for it (books, vocabulary flash cards, etc), but didn't spend as much time as I intended and did horribly on verbal (quant. isn't so hot, either). Should I retake it again before they change it this...

    Do you do problems beyond the assigned HW?

    My professor assigns 4-10 questions and says to "pick 4" (all homework is due at the end of the semester on the day of the final). I do everything he assigns just so I don't miss out on something

    Programs Programming classes or self-teach? (physics major)

    Programs Programming classes or self-teach? (physics major)

    Hello. I am a third year physics major (technically, although I am still taking 200 level classes) and understand that programming is a must. I do not know anything about programming.

    I feel like I'll be behind if I start out in Calc I

    When I took Calc I, there were some high school grads in there who were eligible to take Calc II but took Calc I instead to possibly get an easy A. None of them got A's, in fact almost all of them struggled to get C's (possibly because homework wasn't collected so no one did them). I started...
