    Yessir, you heard correctly! I just received my acceptance letter from George Washington University saying I'm officially "in" last night! :hbang: I'm going for my Masters Degree in Systems Engineering, so it will be tough but nothing I can't handle. :agreed: I'm looking forward to sharpening up my skills (two years now since I have attended college, a lot of that book-learning has gone to waste so I could use the refresher!) and as long as I get B's or higher my tuition (and books, sweet! :cool: ) will be fully covered by work! :tmm: Hello ever-higher learning, goodbye free time for the next 3 years! :( :lol: Wish me luck fellas! :yesway:

    Congratulations, dude! As tough as it's gonna be, I'm sure it'll all be worth it in the end.

    Good luck, and keep us posted!

    Thanks gents! :hbang: Apparently GWU is a big deal down here to companies, so I guess getting my B.S. at PSU and now soon my MS at GWU will help me out a good deal! :yesway:

    No one cares. :squint:





    Kidding. I had a buddy go to GWU (and ironically, at my last job a friend of mine there accounted for them, and here the woman two cubicles over does their performance analytics - I can't escape them. :lol:), and visited him down there a few times. It's a great school, in a really cool city. Congrats. :D

    Just giving a bumpity bump for this puppy! I got my final grade for the first Systems Engineering course of my Master Degree... a B+! :woohoo: It was a fucking ROUGH course too... that final was a killer but I did decent enough to keep the B+! :D I would have loved to have scored an A- or A, but a B+ is good enough to start off with! :lol: The best part of this news is that I get to KEEP the Engl Invader I just bought!!! :wub: If I didn't get a B or higher the course would not be paid for by the corporation so I'm REALLY happy about doing well in the first class as I can definitely think of things I'd rather spend $2K+ on! :)
