    Will an A- affect my application?

    Ahh that's pretty cool! I wanted to get involved in some research with Prof. Madan, but he didn't have anything for undergrads unfortunately. It seems like you were there for a few days? April 07 was the end of my freshman year.

    Will an A- affect my application?

    There are classes you can take in Economics that can be very difficult, speaking as an Economics/Physics major - well, I graduated.

    Advice for Undergraduates

    Sigh, I remember when I was young and naive (being only 23, I'm sure I'm still young and naive). Fact of the matter is, greed always breeds more greed.

    How an undergraduate math exam in the US looks like?

    I'd say this were fairly lengthy for a 75 minute class, in 2 hours, I would say it's doable. What class is this for? Is it an upper level class? If it's an upper level class, I wouldn't say its difficult at all, but at a lower level, I would say it was fair.

    Why you should cry for the intelligence of the human Race.

    this is exactly why it has become a meme on the internet. It's all about syntax and has led to a lot of discussions. It's really not a reason to cry for the human race. There are a ton of other reasons that are more pressing.

    Help Me Choose Where To Go For Undergrad

    And I've been going here full-time for 5 years. The competitions get put into the crappy buildings and I'm not sure what you mean by dirty. Some of the buildings are old, anything you'd deal with though is modernized. But to each their own :)
