        well on some subjects the state has legitimate interest to decide if you are not completely scrotebrained like in medicine or law. Other than that a degree from Uni is only a career goal/intro for job market so you have a point I guess

        At the end there is an option to choose one from among the three specializations: Probability, Theoretical Statistics and Applied Statistics.

        The Applied Statistics specialization consists of four different tracks : Biostatistics, Computational statistics, Finance and Acturial statistics.

            People will tell you that "useless degrees" exist but as long as you’re resourceful they absolutely aren’t. You can get jobs easier than the average person, perhaps start at higher levels than others like being a manager at a store just from merit, or if you get good grades you can go to grad school and become a teacher or a librarian or something.
            If you manage to get a job in music then great for you that’s what you should strive for but please don’t get convinced that you’re a fuck up if you struggle.

      Applied and Computational mathematics.
      I am a military transfer student, was an ELT on a sub. Also really nervous, because people on LULZ tell me I wont ammount to anything if my undergrad doesn’t have topology, analysis, and measure theory. I just want a decent well paying job out of college. I’ve looked around on USA jobs and there are plenty of mathematican titled jobs in the government sector in the vicinity. Really banking on my military experience with a degree on top to get me a decent living. Have I not done enough?

        I’m not a fan of double majors, as there are other far more productive ways to use your free time. If you really like physics and would like to double major, go for it. But don’t do it at the expense of activities directly associated with your actual career (as in networking, getting to grad school, getting internships and so on)

          Guest

          I recently started second year so I can’t say I have too much experience. IMO it can be somewhat harder than traditional engineering fields since you learn the same physics and math that other engineers do but you also have to learn a good bit of chem and bio.

          I wouldn’t recommend it since it’s a really niche field. You’d probably have to get a masters or a PhD to find relevant work. Furthermore, you’d be competing with chemical, electrical, and mechanical engineers for biomedical engineering jobs.

          I would recommend getting a more traditional eng degree.

          I’m biased though since I’m trying to switch fields.

                well you should switch asap, i feel like chemE is exceptionally different compared to other disciplines of engineering, like electrical and mechanical. every time i see someone share their hw/learning topics/classes from their degrees on social media, it looks like middle school level work to me. at least compared to what we do in chemE

                      Ok,

                      Essentially I want to transfer into first year engineering at UWO. Why first year? It’s less competitive to get into

                      My high school stats are good. 95 average alongside several academic awards and extracurriculars.

                      My first year stats are bad. 70 average and dropped some courses. However, I had some issues at home that year due to one of my parents becoming disabled so maybe if I include this on an extenuating circumstances form admissions will have some leniency.

                      My second year stats are looking good. My average is improving and I think it’s realistic for me to end the year in the 80s.

                      I’m trying to transfer with stats like these so that’s why it’s complicated.

                        i dont really understand what you mean by average 95 and average 70. are you not in US? i don’t have any advice if you arent, i think you mean like you’re average grade for all your classes was 70 but that’s a pretty dumb way to do it if you ask me.

                        i always said it to myself as "pick the best of the worst" when it comes to college.
                        gotta be a chemE so i can make enough money and have enough free time so i can do the things in life i actually want to do

        I transferred from a community college so my experiences will be a little different, but I don’t think its worth the hassle unless its very important to be somewhere else or if your current school is turbo shit. I know some people who moved universities and many of them complained about the process, some had to stay an extra year due to credits not transferring or class sequences being different, ect.

        People will tell you that "useless degrees" exist but as long as you’re resourceful they absolutely aren’t. You can get jobs easier than the average person, perhaps start at higher levels than others like being a manager at a store just from merit, or if you get good grades you can go to grad school and become a teacher or a librarian or something.

          It’s very important for me to transfer primarily because of my desire to switch engineering fields but also due to a few other reasons. I don’t mind spending extra time in school.

          The main problem for me is that my situation is unusual. Thus, I’m trying to figure out the best strategy for transferring into first year at UWO (Western).

          I had a 95 in high school. Won several academic awards

          I did poorly in 1st year. Got a 70 and dropped a few courses. However I was distracted from school at the time due to a parent becoming disabled. I was told I can put this on an extenuating circumstances form.

          I’m doing better in 2nd year. I think I can significantly boost my average.

            What country are you from? Just apply to a western school as if you are a graduating high school student. They can’t access your college records outside their borders. Even within borders I know some people who just moved states and acted like they never went to university after failing out their first year

      I majored in history and economics, one class missing to get a minor in math. Applying to law schools and phd programs for economic history right now. Will have until may-june to decide what I want to do with the schools I get into. Nice to take a year off from a school environment.

            You still have a year. Apply to every single internship and research you can find, even if it isnt that relevant to your degree. You need something.
            Join clubs, not the super serious wannabe type A personality ones, the fun ones meant to socialize. Join a sports rec league or something. Make friends and ask out girls.
            Go to your profs office hours and ask questions beyond "whats on the exam". Read their book, go discuss it with them, and then ask for more personal reading material. Make yourself seem like an earnest independent thinker, not student #753,293

                    if youre young your personality is likely to change a lot and you’ll be a completely different person in 7-10 years time. the chances of you still being compatible with your partner are very slim, if you’re even compatible now lol. should have kept it bf and gf

          GNU radio / SDRs never came up a single time in my courses.
          But now while I’m in my senior design project, we have to use GNU radio as the backbone of our project for programming an SDR
          All of my courses were focused on the side of RF related to wave propagation, EMag, antennas, and basic transmitter circuit design

            I remember once I made a 75MHz analog oscilator with a single transistor. I miss the analog electronics days and the "standard" modulation schemes.

            You can say all the good stuff about the digital era, and probably will be more than right. But I stuck with the "primitive" AM/FM modulations. All that much math working in real life.

      Did a double major in bio and chem then minored in applied math

      Never took a cs course but self taught a bunch and picked up an emphasis in comp bio/bio informatics on my PhD in biological chemistry. Got another emphasis in biophysics but I feel like that was cheating cause I just used that coursework for my biological chemistry track.

        Finishing up my pure maths bachelor’s, can’t find tech job so I’m going to get a masters in CS

        It’s more affordable in some countries (for the citizens). Either that or the master’s degree might offer a very high chance at breaking into a high paying industry (tech/finance) so the debt might be worth jt.

          I think it used to mean finding ways to streamline industrial practices, especially related to manufacturing, but since westoids aren’t allowed to manufacture things anymore I think industrial engineering is basically like glorified HR now.
