Me: Future Rainbow?

Discussion in 'Off Topic [BG]' started by Chris Brodowski, Nov 20, 2002.

  1. So I was looking online yesterday, trying to find some grad schools, when I stumbled upon one that had basically ALL MY INTERESTS! (condensed matter physics, high Tc superconductors, cryogenics, and "magnetic-bottle nuclear fusion"). It also is a high-level research institution, with a 3 or 4 to 1 student to faculty ratio in the grad departments. interestingly, this university was:

    UNIVERSITY OF HAWAII AT MANOA!!!!!!!!! :eek: :)

    I want to go sooooooooo badly now....Too bad its 6000 miles away...I will have to bribe my parents.... :D

    If this is all your interests, then someone needs to get out just a bit more! :D Just playing! That sounds very cool that you found a place that is perfect for you... good luck getting everything in place to go!

  5. If this is all your interests, then someone needs to get out just a bit more! :D

    :) :p

    I am also looking in loads of colleges on the West Coast and some in Canada for graduate school, although I have never been so excited at the prospects of being in Hawaii for graduate school. The only two schools that i know of that I am looking at in the East are Syracuse University (close to home, unlike UH :D ) and Boston University.

    But I think I'll end up in one of three places:
    1) Hawaii
    2) West Coast
    3) Canada

  6. I know a guy who's working on his PhD in economics at U-HI. His quality of life improved immensely over his previous life in Champaign, IL.

    Chris, you're probably already in horrendous debt as it is, right? Adding another $15-30 grand to the pile won't kill you, and if you're smart enough you should get a fellowship within a few weeks of getting out there.

    I too looked at the title of your thread, and thought you were "coming out."

    Hawaii: expensive to live there. Hope you have a sugar daddy or are prepared to assume massive quantities of debt.
  11. I am not necessarily going there, BUT THERE IS A 100% CHANCE I WILL APPLY, and I think it would really be almost like a dream situation.
  12. bump :D

    What can I say, I'm greedy?
