*Haxk20 not so techy stuff :O*
So in my country its the time where you find out if you have been accepted to the unis you applied to or not.
I have gotten the mail 2 days ago.
And to not make it an huge post
I applied to one of the best universities in my country that is for computer science fields.
And well i have been accepted.
IDK how i managed to do it. But i did it.
From what i heard math on high school compared to this is out of this fucking world. So yeah i will surely be having few funny nights there.
Good luck to anyone who is still waiting for the answer if they have been accepted or not.

    Congratulations! Learn a lot and have fun while you're at it!

    If you take it the right way and enjoy learning, university can be the best time you've ever had (certainly is like that for me). Take advantage of the academic system and do as much as you can, the "official" school requirements are just a low bar that you have to pass.

    @melezorus34 YES. ABSOLUTELY. Im ordering the programmable calculator in near future.

    And thank you.

    @RememberMe @magicMirror I absolutely will have fun. Im going there with my best friend and tbh i can already see the shit we will do there.

    Also thank you.

    @RememberMe Oh i absolutely will do as much shit as i can while im there. No doubt about it.

    I mean just in high school i have written 3 35 A4 pages long document about projects i did for a competition i went to. Fun times. So yeah i will be having fun and using the opportunities to my best advantage.

    @Haxk20 nice. Any idea what all you want to do in uni? (I'd recommend you explore everything, you never know what you'll like). Seems to me you'd be a great fit for systems/embedded systems engineering...?

    @RememberMe I will mainly explore. Banchelor is here basically to learn the basics then in enginner level i can select really which way i want to go.

    From what i saw i will have to learn python which i really hate but oh well.

    And yes i would love embedded shit and just kernel and everything about it But also android rom development is lots of fun. But they allow you to do that so yeah. Will have to explore if i dont like something more.

    Congrats! Don't forget that during the next 4 years you're supposed to learn things not only for classes and definitely not only in tech area ;)

    @Haxk20 if you're going towards systems, check this out. In my undergrad I was searching for something to learn systems from since my uni didn't really have a proper systems track. I found CMU's 15213 course that's an insanely good intro to systems (want to implement a memory allocator? Cache simulator? Network proxy? You're in the right place). It's such a rigorous and comprehensive course (wish I could actually take it). I did as much as I could from the outside, including reading the book, reading the web asides, and playing with the lab code.

    I bought the book they use that was written for this course, it's this thing https://csapp.cs.cmu.edu/
    If you go to the Instructor Site -> Lab Assignments section you can see all the lab handouts for self-study (for free) along with the writeups that tell you what to do.
    http://csapp.cs.cmu.edu/public/...

    You can get the slides from here (in the Schedule section) https://www.cs.cmu.edu/~213/

    It's quite involved, but worth it.

    @yellow-dog Who said the calculator would be for math ?

    @RememberMe Thank you very much. I will look into it.

    Best of luck!

    And most importantly: don't forget to sleep regularly, take care of yourself, and learn self-discipline and how to manage your stress.
    You will (hopefully) have lots of opportunities and projects attracting your attention and tempting you to push a little bit further. Be very careful, and learn when you should stop.

    It seems trivially easy to hear it like this. And yet, 5 years later, here I still am, nowhere near done, because I didn't see I had gone way too far...

    @endor you realize you are telling that to person who can't stop ?
    But yes I will try to take breaks and etc.
    Thank you.

    Why get a calculator when you already have a laptop and a phone with you

    @electrineer it's a PDA. Many TI calculators has serial programming port.
