    Best degrees for govt/policy?

    I'm not sure if this is the right section to post in but here's my dilemma: I'm doing science(geography)/law (2nd year), passionate about the environment but really interested in public policy in general. I'm not really enjoying the science (just doesn't seem practical), and I'm considering...

    UNSW v USyd for Science/Law?

    Yeah like everyone says, you can't go wrong with either. I'm doing science/law and chose UNSW mostly because of its law faculty. I really love the teaching style and definitely think it was the best decision for me. I don't regret not going to USYD.

    Should i pursue law?

    Like the others have have said, only do it if you want to. It's as simple and as complex as that. If you have a vague interest in it, then go for it - no harm done (you can always drop it). But if you have absolutely no interest in it, then don't. And also, you're in yr 10 - I don't think you...

    Laptops for Uni

    Re: Laptops for university Yeah I totally agree - I'm also bias - I absolutely love my 11 inch Macbook air - it's the perfect size, the keyboard and trackpad are fab (these were important factors for me) and it's incredibly speedy. Yes it was $1000 but I love it heaps so I think it's justified.

    Should I pursue law?

    I'm one of those people that fervently believes that if you have a passion, you should continue to go for it. You obviously really want to do medicine/dentistry, and don't have nearly as much passion for law. Seriously, with your passion and willpower, I think you'll get in eventually. If you'd...

    How do you take notes for Law?

    + 1 - I've only completed my first year of law, and so far my method is to make detailed notes of your readings before class (will depend on how much available time you have), and then modify them according to what is said in your lectures (add points that you've missed, or delete information...

    Commerce/Law at USyd or UNSW?

    Great answer deswa1! You summed it up perfectly. I didn't get 99.95 so I'm not sure about the differences in the scholarship, but when I was deciding between Usyd & UNSW, I literally just went with my gut. My parents wanted me to go to Usyd because of the prestige, but I ended up going to UNSW...

    Law at MQ vs USYD

    I'm not sure about 1) or 2), but I'm sure someone else can answer that. But, all I know is the annoying reality that if you've got two graduates, one from MQ and one from USYD, with similar marks and extracurriculars, the person from USYD will probably get employed. I'm not an employer and I...

    UNSW Subject Reviews.

    Sem 2, 2013 GEOS2241 (Peak Carbon) Ease: 10/10. Very easy, all rote learning. Perhaps too easy - not challenging enough. Content: 7/10. A lot of the content really interested me. You basically get an overview of climate policy; from different angles etc. So as a generalist course, it...
