    Wanted to learn a language, might start over break and maybe take a class in the spring

    Narrowed it down to French or German

    Is either one more useful in the engineering world over the other? Does it even matter?

    Yea it was a shot in the dark, I'm not doing it to look good on a resume. It would just be a plus for whichever one I choose.

    I'd go with German since it is more innovative in the engineering world and a lot of high-tech production is related to Germany.

    That's what I was thinking. My pros for each were

    German: country is innovative in engineering, I have German heritage
    French: probably easier to learn, spoken more world wide

    People told me Calc II was going to be hard and much different than in high school. My parents believed it so much that they made me retake it in college instead of using my AP credits.

    It was basically the same. You shouldn't be worried about it

    Your prof must have been ridiculously easy or you guys learned different stuff than us. For everyone I know that has taken the class the average has been under 50%. My class average was 42% iirc.

    Had my first interview for an internship at a power/utility company the other day; went really well, I feel like my chances of being offered an internship are pretty good. The only problem is the city is 3 hours away from where my parents live, so I'd have to pay rent for a few months while living there. It is a paid internship so it's not a huge issue, but I'm still seeing what all my options are.

    Would I be right to say that the experience gained from the internship is much more important than the money, so I shouldn't worry about having to pay rent?

    Also, it's in a small city that I wouldn't really want to live in after graduating. Would having this internship on my resume make it easier for me to get another internship next summer, but at a different company/city where I would rather be after graduating?

It is a paid internship so it's not a huge issue, but I'm still seeing what all my options are.

    Would I be right to say that the experience gained from the internship is much more important than the money, so I shouldn't worry about having to pay rent?

    Also, it's in a small city that I wouldn't really want to live in after graduating. Would having this internship on my resume make it easier for me to get another internship next summer, but at a different company/city where I would rather be after graduating?
    I think its definitely worth it. That is what I did for my last work term (moved 2.5 hours away to a town in the middle of nowhere, population 2,000). Worked there for 8 months. It wasn't ideal, but definitely worth it long term imo.

    How was the small town thing? I'm heading to a town with about 9k people, not a whole lot of stuff in the city. Did you just find a hobby or new things that you were interested in to learn or what?

    Your prof must have been ridiculously easy or you guys learned different stuff than us. For everyone I know that has taken the class the average has been under 50%. My class average was 42% iirc.
    A good prof is the difference between night and day in classes like diff eq. My class average right now is around a C, I'll probably get an A.

    learncheme.com has a little bit of everything. Never used their fluids stuff though

    EDIT: here's what they have for fluids http://www.learncheme.com/page/fluids-screencasts

    My prof was the best prof I have ever had in any class ever, bar none. His notes were amazing and he explained everything really well. The class was just brutally hard. I think the highest park in the class was just under 70%.

    It was pretty crappy tbh. I talked to my supervisor and got them to let me work 11 hr days, so I only work 4 days a week. With the 45 min each way commute to and from work it didnt leave me much time to be bored, and I went home every weekend. Any weekend I didnt go home i'd go snowboarding since the town I was in was pretty close to the mountains.

    Overall though, if I was working normal hours and not going home all the time it would've sucked big time. I was spending over $600 a month on gas though, and I put over 35,000 kilometers on my car in 8 months.

    My next coop is far from home again (3.5 hour drive) but its in a major city and I know a bunch of people that live there so I'm looking forward to it.

    Edit*
    I'm being kind of unfair, I was invited out pretty often by the other engineers where I was working. I didn't participate much though and w/ me staying late/going early didn't have much time to do anything anyways. I don't think it would be that that bad though if you are open to trying new things. I definitely would not be willing to do it long term though.

    Calc II isn't difficult, I don't understand the horror stories that surround that class. Calc III is also easy, and Diff eq is even easier than that. Math doesn't get difficult until your first "real" math course. As in Advanced Calculus, Linear Algebra II, real/complex analysis, etc. Honestly courses don't become unreasonably difficult until like Junior year. Even then it's manageable. Only time it gets out of control is when you get ambitious and take lots of graduate level classes.

    Didn't get a hard teacher or didn't go to a good university then. Calc II averages were in the 40's and I still reflect on the class to this day.

    I can confirm Calc 2 is much more difficult than Calc 3. However it may be all relative as Calc 2 is mostly learning new info whereas Calc 3 is essentially applying Calc 1 in three space.

    *Didn't do good in Calc III but had no problems with Calc II crew*

    I started off reallyyyy bad in that class. Stuff like finding out how far away a point was from a plane, the angle between that point and a point on the plane, etc. Failed that test hard. Had to work uphill all semester. Once we got to 3D calculus I had no problems whatsoever. The TA saw how hard I was trying and bumped my grade up a bit I think. Owe him a beer

    My university is ranked one of the most competitive schools in the country, so that is absolutely not the case. They pay our professors damn bonuses for raping kids GPA's. So yeah our averages were quite low too, but my point is that I never understood the difficulty. Most people realize how easy the class was once they start taking actually difficult classes. Everyone gets nervous and ****s up because they get psyched out by people saying the class is so difficult. There are WAY more difficult classes than Calculus. Like not even close.
