    But in saying that excluding the monetary issues associated with American universities i'm really jealous our system just isn't like yours. No pressure to choose a career path when you're 18 and have no idea like we have to do.

    Cadillac; what'd you actually get? and what are you applying for and where?
    I ended up with an 89.50 which I was kind of disappointed with to be honest. I was definitely hoping for mid nineties. I've applied for courses at UTS, UNSW and USYD predominantly in communications majoring in writing and cultural studies or journalism.

      Got me covered, got an 86.5 but then got into a course with a cutoff of 90 something, kinda stupid really. When do you find out what you got? Good luck with it man

        Haha cheers. I find out on Thursday whether or not I get into my preferred courses. And apparently I'm elgible for some extra points at UTS and USYD because I was apparently "disadvantaged" or something. The whole UAI system is flawed in my opinion.

              lol. Apparently my school was disadvantaged due to geographic proximity or something like that so some universities feel it necessary to help us.

                I know it's one of the hardest professions to succeed in, that and it's ridiculously underpaid unless you have a real talent.

                that said if it's a passion definately go for it, earning less doing something you like is definately better in my opinion.

                  Well i guess you can't complain about that.

                  If i wasn't doing a double degree i would've got a couple of extra points at Newcastle uni for being a local, but then again they take anyone here so that doesnt even really matter.

                          • On Mondays and Wednesdays, I have 4 classes and on Fridays I have only three. I was lucky to get it so I could schedule all my classes on MWF so I could have TuTh to do my school work. The crappy part is that I am on campus from about 9am to 6pm. Oh well, I am close to graduating so it's no big deal.

                                I'm a senior and I want to be an architect. I know somebody who went to the same high school as me and went to the college I want to go to as an architect. It's what I think I want to do. Hopefully it is.
