Just curious what school you all call 'home'. Where'd you go? What'd you study?

Me: I moved from suburban Chicago, IL to Troy, NY in 1992 to go to Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, and never got around to moving back. :|

I will return to Chicago one day though!

I did my BSc (Physics) and MSc (Radiological Physics) at the University of Alberta in Edmonton, AB, Canada. Finished the MSc in 1996 and somehow ended up working in the US, which wasn't exactly high on my list of places to go, but I'm still here for some reason.

I got my BS in Physics, before getting my MS in Physics. What did your degree program entail? Mine was basically just like the Nuclear Engineering program, except instead of 2 semesters of nuclear reactor analysis and 1 semester of radiological engineering we took 2 semesters of quantum physics and 1 semester of electrodynamics.

Went to college to study Biology, got a degree in Chemistry, now I study Mathematics:

"The Universe exists independently of our minds but understand her mathematical laws and you can control her to an incredible degree of accuracy. Fail to understand them, or ignore them, or forget them, and she can be as malevolent as Moby Dick"

Edit: Oh yea, I think Integral is getting frustrated about the chalk stuf. He's ready to say, "you know what guys, just forget I said anything about it".
