8/21    Has anyone satisfied the American institutions requirement by taking
        the exam instead of enrolling in PolSci 1. How hard is it to prepare
        for the exam? Would it be possible to prepare for it by say doing
        some reading during the winder break? Is it more or less work than
        actually taking PolSci 1?
        \_ I did it.  You just read three books and take a really easy test on
           them.  I think you pass if you convince them you actually did the
           reading.  I actually only read two of them and was able to find some
           online essays on the third which gave me enough to pass.  I
           guarantee that PoliSci 1 is MUCH more work.

2/8     Why does UC suck so hard? I did undergrad at UCB and I hated it.
        Professors couldn't teach, class workload was high, and the system
        was designed to "weed out" students and demoralize them rather
        than teach and encourage them. I always got lower grades than I
        deserved for the amount of work I put in. I don't know if this was
        because of the curve which insists that 50% of students should get

3/3     Has the CSUA considered asking alumni to ccme back and give talks about
        the cool stuff they are doing? I'm thinking of bz (Cyan), maybe aubie
        (Pixar)... I'm sure there are plenty of others I'm forgetting (no
        offense intended). Twohey, lea, myself and others could talk about
        grad school. Brg could too, but I don't know if you would want that.
        I bet mconst could put on some kind of freaky variety show (he'll

2/13    Soda undergraduates, I am too old to remember this, is English
        1A/1B a requirement for CS in L&S?
        \_ I thought it was a requirement for every department in L&S.
           Relatively easy to test out of, though.
        \_ Yes, as the pp indicated, it is an L&S requirement, not a
           major/departmental requirement.  A 4 on the AP English exam tests
