    Single.. Who has never had a Girlfriend/boyfriend?

    Yeah same here strangely. never had gf. Guess I was like the op, sort of failing at reading signs and making the moves. Worst thing is, how do you make the move on someone you've never worked or talked to in a lecture or tutorial. Guess it makes it harder in that I'm post-grad atm. The only...

    CHEM1011 vs CHEM1031

    Lol chemistry is a WAM killer just like BIOS1011. Back in my days (damn i feel old), chemistry was the worst controlled faculty. Not sure if that nick guy still teaches, but he's shithouse. Organic chemistry gets taught all over the place in CHEM1021/CHEM1041. They talk about A + B = C, and...

    Which Uni Has The Hottest Girls???

    LOL The god poster who said that high iq chicks are fugly compared to low iq chicks is 100% on the money. God damn, medicine has the worst looking chicks in history. Usually asians are ok-looking, but man the ones in high tier degrees look like they've smashed their face against a...

    Studying @ UNSW – a guide from a student

    Re: Textbooks / Handbooks / Student Fees Having gone through undergrad and post-grad. I'd recommend to all university newbies not to buy prescribed textbooks immediately. It's better to wait 1-2 weeks into the course, see if the lecturer actually says that you'll need to answer questions from...

    Diploma in Innovation Management

    Been there, done that, but dropped out of it. It seems like a competitive diploma to get into. Trust me, its easy. I've had friends of mine gotten 2-3 fails, and still got into this diploma. Advantages: Extra Dip Inv Sci onto your name. Will businesses want a theoretical diploma or someone...

    From what I understand. It isn't possible. double degree means 1 major from each degree. i.e. commerce (major in whatever you money-making freaks do) + science (i.e. medical microbiology) Trust me, once you hit the end of 1st or 2nd year, even just completing the science degree part kills...

    B Sci - Double major

    Yup most of us have done it. And yes it is possible to get a WAM of 75. Study hard. Time managemtn ++++ 2 majors just means your subjects will be varied. u will still be doing 4 courses like ur law buddies or economics friends. Just keep in mind the optom transfer program was instituted...

    70 WAM. Easy or difficult?

    How much you put in is how much you get out. Pretty hard to fail in Uni I reckon. 1st Year Chemistry & Biology in Science is understandable cos its badly taught, badly run and only good for those who've done biology and hard core chem in HSC. By 2 years onwards you'll get a much higher WAM cos...

    Bachelor of Biomedicine

    Depends whether u want to invest that extra year of hons after sci. If u do - biotech, micro, environmental science, safety science (mining) you can easily work in research labs, prepping material for other researchers or even hons/phd students. Salary is crap around 40 starting. (RA)...

    Medical Science at UNSW or USyd?

    Personally I'd choose just a plain old sci course, you're not bounded by Med Sci to choose this and that. With Sci you can simply follow a Major (i.e. Physics) and stick with it. Any leftover slots in each semester can be used to do elective courses (easy grab for marks --> higher WAM). Not to...

    Any thoughts on Speech Pathology, Physio and Neuropsychology?

    - Speech Pathology Course Structure: Learn all about the anatomy & Physiology of ear, muscles for jaw movement, etc. Not much clinical contact. Primarily theory based. 2 Years Masters if you've done a degree before. Not very competitive, easy to get into. Clinical Contact: Work with doctors...

    Is it difficult to get into optometry

    easy to get into. Shitty salary. Also monotonous job. Try shadowing an optom for a day or two.

    Why the hate on pharmacy?

    Love ur use of 'inbreeding'. Unfortunately as with any profession, no matter how hard it is to get into, we get idiots inside. Here's the story - night before med interviews, his friend (call him John) calls Jason, "can you head over to this cafe and help out this pre-med girl for her...
