Anonymous asked: What does capped mean for UT austin?


Answer:

TT.TT
Capped is basically a deferral for UT Austin. It’s a way where you can go to other UT schools (Arlington, San Antonio, etc) for freshman year and then transfer to UT Austin and get automatic acceptance as a transfer.

7. A time you cried (or felt like crying) at school

ooof… TT.TT

elementary school - in the 4th grade, i was this really shy, really quiet asian girl (that was my identity at the time) in the most white washed school in a pretty rich white community… my class thought “ayyy, she’s asian, she would do really well at this sudoku competition…”
at first i was pretty skeptical, but i was like eh midas whale.. i ended up winning the whole thing ヾ(。◕ฺ∀◕ฺ)ノ

Anonymous asked: How did you come to the decision of becoming a biomedical engineer??


Answer:

Hmmmmm
Good question…
When I was little I always got queasy really fast, so I knew right away I couldn’t be a doctor or a nurse… I still wanted to heal people though, so I thought being an engineer… And then years passed by, and biomedical engineering became a thing and I was like yes - that’s EXACTLY what I want to do. It encompassed EVERYTHING that I knew I would be helping people :)
Then reality hit… Everyone wants to do biomedical engineering :c
So I rethought about the medical path and I somehow fell in love with it (most likely because of the hospital I volunteered at and the doctors/nurses I shadowed).
I still want to be an engineer, but I’m also going to med school after. Being double majored and having specialties in more than one thing is so important nowadays, but I also realize - if I’m not doing well or BME is just not my thing, then I’m going to respectfully bow out and focus on pre-med that way if I’m going to do something, I’m going to be hella excellent at it.

Anonymous asked: Why UT over Berkeley? I'm in a similar predicament, so it'd be great if you could give some of your reasons.


Answer:

ferviduscatharsis:

whOoops I forgot to respond to this sorry! I hope I’m not too late to help.

Living in Texas, UT is really more of a practicality choice.

I have two main reasons for choosing UT over Cal:

1. Cost of attendance: since I don’t have any scholarship to Berkeley, the price to go is practically double that of UT (and in-state residency is hard af to get from what I’ve heard). Although the actual price is not a huge worry for my family, I don’t think it’s as worth to go to a school that’s fairly on par in my major (Chemical Engineering, US News ranks Cal 2 and UT 9, that’s not that far off really and tbh anything in the top 10 is hella good).

2. Completion of degree on time: with such a huge undergrad population at Cal, especially for engineering undergrad, I’ve heard many stories about not completing the degree plan on time (~4 years). ;___;” I don’t want to be stuck extra semesters because I wasn’t able to get the classes I want. Here’s really where the scholarship comes in: a few of my friends got Berkeley’s Regents and Chancellor’s Scholarship, which in addition to leveling the cost between in state and out of state, also gives them priority on classes and housing! So yeah with me considering graduate school as well, I really don’t want to spend extra semesters in undergrad if I don’t have to.

Don’t get me wrong, Cal is a GREAT school, and I have a lot of friends that are there or planning to go and love it so much, but being so much the practical and logical person that I am now, I don’t think it’s worth for me. Cal has dat cali weather and dat bay area lyfe, with Silicon Valley in its backyard so it is very alluring Q_Q maybe I’ll head that way for grad school, who know ;D UT is also a huge hub in the South for internships and stuff, and while Cal is definitely not lacking there, I hope my standing within UT will help me in that area :)

Hope this helps! Good luck in deciding :)

6. The best dance you ever attended (pick a specific day, not just ex. “sadies is my favorite dance”)

ferviduscatharsis:

Uhhhh lol I’m not really big on dancing :s it’s just really hard to let loose for me sometimes I guess haha

Last year’s CYLC formal was pretty gr9 though. Will did a great job DJing and everyone is pretty yolo that night and they’re all close friends (#CYLCisfam) so it was easier just to let loose. Part of it was also me having to film part of it so I wasn’t just dancing all night lolol.

5. Your favorite teacher and how he/she has impacted you

ferviduscatharsis:

whoops forgot to do this yesterday :s

QQ I’m so bad with picking favorites. There were a lot of teachers that I didn’t have but worked with for clubs and stuff that I really enjoyed: Kite/Lobue and Shepu were some of the greatest science fair sponsors ever. 

Grow was probably my favorite science teacher that I actually had. So enthusiastic about her job, a lot of student-teacher interaction and understanding. I think she really helped me find my path down the chemical aspects of engineering because I simply just enjoyed her chem class so much.

Stanton and Moreno are two more teachers that I really enjoyed. Stanton was my 9/10 humanities teacher who really enjoyed teaching what he taught. I think its in part due to him that I still try to maintain an active knowledge of my cultural surroundings and current events. He was also big on “hardwork pays off” and it was through his class that I really started to learn how to learn. Moreno was my freshman HGAP teacher and she was so big on forming connections with her students (at least until my year). Haha, I still visit her every now and then.
