Countdown to UCSD

    As you may know I've been provisionally admitted at UCSD Ph.D.. In order to be able to enroll definitely, I have to overcome these steps. This month I have seven exams of the last undergraduate year:

    1) Industrial Automation
    2) Cogeneration power plants
    3) Hydraulics and Open channel flow
    4) Energetic Engineering
    5) Management and Information Systems
    6) Industrial Heating & Cooling
    7) Transport Engineering

    and I have to defend my undergraduate final project (8)

    These 8 steps represent the borderline between me and USA. I hope to pass all of them before Fall 2005, but it would be a very difficult task. So if I fail, you will be exceptional eye witness of my failure. :cry:

    Did you show them your PF Engineering guru ribbon? Surely that counts for something. :approve:

    You can do it, but that is a heavy load!!!

    I wish you're right.

    I was thinking to put it in my curriculum, but we have to work harder for enhancing this site to become more prestigious to do such a thing, something like "the Royal Society of PF". :wink:

    Thanks, my Manchester Expert. :tongue2:

    Ahhh yes, "expert".

    "Ex", meaning "has been,"
    and
    "Spurt", meaning "a drip under pressure."

    GOOD LUCK!

    We are all pulling for you. Perhaps you will need to take some time off from PF, that will be permitted, but we will expect you back better then ever.

    Perhaps someday we will finally meet!

    Ok, we have two quarters. This is the last quarter of this year. This does not mean all exams of the year are concentrated in this month, only the correspondents to second quarter.

    I hope so!!


    Thank you very much.

    Keep on going, news has just come:

    I am getting surprised of myself. I had to pass every exam I had to take this year in order to have a chance in UCSD for fall 2005, and the pressure to do it was overwhelming. It seems the stuff is going well. Let's hope it keeps on going so.....

    Congrat Clausius, the end is in sight and looks good!

    I am delighted to see young scientists from other countries continuing to want to study here.

    You've made my day.

    Everyone is invited to that party. :!!)

    Thanks pattylou, mattmns, and Moonbear. I will try to do my best. I have taken all exams. Now I have to wait till the professors give off the scores. I know some of them, but the last two I don't know yet. Also I have to prepare my undergraduate project and defend it in the first week of September.
