Hello everyone. I had to write a 6-7 Page report on my co-op experience and how well did my school (Penn State) prepare me. I had to send in 2 copies to the school while I'm at my co-op. I basically am paying 650 dollars to write this report and get either a PASS/FAIL grade because I had to take a 1 credit co-op course every rotation. So 650 in the summer and 650 in the fall. Well silly me I assumed the cover page counted as a page, which it didn't as you can see from the second bullet, the abstract is your first page. The report requirements in length are the following: Format and Length • The report must be typed (double spaced) and be 6-7 pages long using your best grammar. • You must include an abstract as the first page of your report. An abstract is not an introduction, it is a brief (50-70 words) summary of your report. Anyways, There is no directions saying, what font you can use, I assumed 12. By it never said what font face to use. If for instance you use times new roman the text will be a lot more condensed of course. I didn't use a massive font, but I could have. So if you take out the cover page my report is 5.5 pages long. But if I change my font to Century Gothic which isn't absurd font, my report would be 6 pages long. So I sent the professor an e-mail with my report with the different font and waiting for a response to see what he says. Either he can say okay thats fine or he can say, no, the report we got had a different font, so you fail. But my argument is, I didn't change any of the content of my paper, its still the same number of characters and yet it reached the requirement by changing the font. I have a feeling he didn't like what I wrote on the paper, I basically explained how well Penn State didn't prepare me for the co-op and how they are teaching out of date technologies. It was my opinion and they asked for it so I told them. Compared to other Comp Sci programs at other schools I feel they are getting a much better education. It didn't affect my performance at my co-op. I'm doing awesome and even working on getting a patent on a project I just recently did. But everything IBM wanted me to use Penn State taught nothing of it. So I quickly taught myself everything I needed to know. When manager heard Penn State taught no Java, and how little programming we actually did in computer science they were appalled and made the same comments I made in my report.
