college — where should i (reasonably) apply?

Sunday, August 8th, 2010

im interested in california, new york, boston, chicago, and dc.

sats
cr- 610
math- 640
writing- 790

i know i can do better in math. i plan on retaking them.
i got like 67 on my math psat, and i tend to be good at math, so yeah.

my gpa from 9th & 10th grade combined is a 3.86. 10th grade alone was a 3.9 something, all A’s and A-’s except for in a half-year (equivalent) social studies course where i got a B+.
9th grade i took geometry (which was the advanced class) and honors science, and then academic spanish (no honors offered) and then academic english and social studies.
10th grade i took honors everything.
so far this year, i’ve had well above a 4.0, but in averaging it out with my finals and my 9th and 10th grade gpas, i’m hoping for somewhere between a 3.95 and a 4.05 by the end of this year, although i could luck out and get higher.
my classes that i’ve completed so far this year are AP english language, AP physics newtonian mechanics, and cooking. i got a B in english and
a B+ in physics.

the rest of the year, i’ll have AP calc ab (which i’m expecting to continue maintaing an A in), honors chem, honors spanish, and then gym and communications.
i’m expecting to do fairly well, although i can never be sure.

next year i’m not taking science, as i doubled up this year, but i will be taking AP stat in addition to AP calc BC. and i’ll be taking AP spanish. and then academic english, social studies, and then cooking and two photo classes.

i’m interesting in math and science.
i’m considering a computer science or engineering major.

however, i have an interest in physics and the stars and such.
so if a school offers it, i’d like a physics minor, just for the sake of expanding my knowledge, not for a career or anything.

i don’t have extracurriculars.
i could stretch it to contain some community service and maybe like, one club that i’ve sometimes showed up to, but like, yeah. not big on extracurriculars.
i do have a job though.
i’d love to get into somewhere real competitive like UCLA, but i don’t know if i have a realistic chance.

based in the areas i listed above, although you can give other options (although those are really the main places i’d consider going. and maybe florida. so let’s go with california, new york, massachusetts, illinois, dc, and florida), can someone give me a basic list of reach, good match, and safety schools?

thanks so much.

i don’t want a really small school.

preferably something medium-large, and nothing really really rural.

Try your best to get your test scores up. I disagree wholeheartedly with shygal9. Competitive universities rely heavily on test scores. This is due to the large variation in grading throughout the high school systems nationally. You could be going to a school that gives out A’s and B’s to everyone or you could be attending a school where only one out of 100 will get an A. This will directly impact your GPA.

Or, you could even be home schooled and receive only Passes and Fails from your parents.

The only means by which a university can make a quantitative measure is by your test score. The same test that all applicants have to take. That is the ultimate yardstick and the great equalizer.

Also:
USC — good school, bad neighborhood (not safe) med/large
UCLA — good school, upscale neighborhood Westwood/safe large
Stanford — half of Palo Alto is bad, the other half is up scale/safe med/small
Berkeley — North Oakland is bad, the hills are up scale/safe med/large
Cal Tech — nice safe place, smallish school, great astro-physics, home of JPL
ASU — good astro-physics, nice neighborhood/safe med/large
UW — good school, safe med/large bad weather

No question: Cal Tech – astronomy, astro-physics.

What was the happiest day of your life?

Friday, August 6th, 2010

I cannot decide

My 19th birthday was amazing. I had a houseparty with decks, lights, smoke machine- the works. 200 people back from the club. Was being evicted from this condemned, cold house. A mate unexpectedly came through with a bag of chats in the club. I was gifted a g of class A charles too, a long time before it was common in my country. One or two women interested but so wired I don’t know what went on. Mad little events happened, all good. Then in the wee hours all my closest friends and my 2 brothers huddled in the living room I realised I had set a fire in the fireplace. Lit that up, cuddled into a big momma and one of the lads phoned for a fat bag of green for the comedown. It arrived 5 minutes later. Fire burned til midday. Pure love in that room. Unforgettable.

Then there was Valentines when I was 21. Madly in love for a year. She came to visit my new doss house for 5 days (usually one or two) Cooked a fancy 3 course meal for her. Flowers. Lingerie. All housemates helping, rolling j’s. They all cleared out when dinner was served. Made love maybe half a dozen times in a freezing cold room by a roaring fire. Did not know sex could be like that. Nothing has come close since.

Then there was a strange one. I’d quit all the heavy stuff and started working out and practicing Taijiquan. I quit my job and moved back in with my mother. This was a strange day as nothing unusual happened. I woke and cooked a good solid breakfast. Don’t have time for that now. 5 minutes and out the door normally.
I played with my niece and hit the gym. Broke my personal best on the ergometer and worked every muscle in my body to exhaustion thrice. Had a swim, steam and sauna. Snatched lunch from my nieces and nephews plates at my mothers. It’s kill or be killed for lunch there. Cycled out to the docks and soaked up some sun (this is a very rare treat in my country) Practiced my 32 movement chen style taijiquan. Cycled out to my brothers to watch a new episode of the Sopranos. It was the one where some New York made guys meet Vito in a gaybar.
During the episode a thunder and lightening storm erupted. As soon as it ended the brother and I cycled down to the beach. Sat on the roof of a changing room watching the lightening (very rare here too) in the hot summer rain and smoked a couple j’s.

Now I’m alone and I’ve lost touch with most of those friends.
Fvck it. I’m only 25. Perhaps there will be a day to top those to come.
Memories. God bless the memories.

Joy of Cooking: Turkey Carving

Thursday, August 5th, 2010

Seventy-five years ago, a St. Louis widow named Irma Rombauer took her life savings and self-published a book called The Joy of Cooking. Her daughter Marion tested recipes and made the illustrations, and they sold their mother-daughter project from Irma’s apartment. Today, nine revisions later, the Joy of Cooking — selected by The New York Public Library as one of the 150 most important and influential books of the twentieth century — has taught tens of millions of people to cook, helped feed and delight millions beyond that, answered countless kitchen and food questions, and averted many a cooking crisis.

(This is my third time asking. I was getting all nostalgic and down on myself but it seems like I’m luckier then I most!)
