2023.05.28 10:34 BruteSentiment Daily Minors Quick-Notes 5/27/23 - Reggie Crawford takes the Mound
| || | submitted by BruteSentiment to SFGiants [link] [comments]
The Giants 2022 1st Round Pick Reggie Crawford finally took the mound in his first pro game, and it appears to have been worth the wait. And in Sacramento, Tyler Fitzgerald’s double gave the River Cats a much-needed win.
AAA: Sacramento 2, Oklahoma City 1 Link https://preview.redd.it/4frekbx3aj2b1.jpg?width=2496&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=76536538baf2c589d109b92da9355527c241511b Sacramento Notes:
- Sacramento’s offense finally kicked in at nearly the last possible moment for the Cats to pull out a win against the Dodgers. Down 1-0 in the 8th, the Cats led things off with a hit batter and a Luis Matos single. After they were moved over by a sacrifice bunt, Tyler Fitzgerald knocked both in with a double to give them a win.
- Tyler Fitzgerald’s double was the only extra-base hit for Sacramento, and Fitzgerald was the only one with multiple hits, going 2-for-4 with a stolen base. In 15 games at Sacramento, Fitzgerald now has five doubles, a triple, and three home runs, with six steals without being caught. His batting line at Sacramento is .305/.391/.576.
- It was Day 1 of rehab stint 2 for Austin Slater, and he went 1-for-3. Slater went six innings playing center field on the day. It’s his first game since May 10th in the big leagues when he suffered a hamstring injury. He was batting .368/.455/.421 in the big leagues.
- Luis Matos was 1-for-4 on the day. It was a pedestrian day for Matos, but he maintains a .318/.362/.455 batting line in Triple-A after ten games, with two doubles and two triples, with three walks to two strikeouts.
- Starting pitcher Drew Strotman had a solid game, giving up a run in 4.0 innings of work, on five hits and three walks, while striking out four. It was a great bounceback for Strotman after he gave up eight inning his last time out. He now has 23 strikeouts to 18 walks in 25.2 innings this season, but he’s given up hits at a .305 batting average.
- Reliever Nick Swiney had two scoreless innings, giving up only a walk while striking out two. Swiney had given up five runs, three earned, over his last two appearances. After four games at Triple-A, he has a 3.52 ERA and a 1.43 WHIP.
- Erik Miller had a scoreless inning, his sixth straight appearance, allowing just a walk and two strikeouts. Miller gave up four runs in his first five innings at Triple-A, but has now lowered his ERA from 7.20 to 3.00 in the six appearances since.
AA: Binghamton 7, Richmond 4 Link https://preview.redd.it/tsdl41l4aj2b1.jpg?width=2496&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=44e48dc925fad29d5e8b4c7b2b59d5d1f7d71a1e Richmond Notes:
- Richmond couldn’t get out of the blocks in this game, and by the time Richmond’s offense got started, they were too far behind. The Ponies scored four in the 2nd inning, and two more in the 4th. But in the 5th, Richmond got four singles, plus a walk and a sacrifice fly that led to four runs. However, Richmond wouldn’t get any more.
- The leading hitter for Richmond was catcher Rob Emery, who went 3-for-4 with three singles. It’s Emery’s first 3-hit game at either level this season. He’s had two games with four hits and two with three hits in the two seasons before this. He now has a .214/.303/.250 batting line in 10 games at Richmond.
- Andy Thomas was playing first, and went 2-for-5 with a fielding error. That gives Thomas a small 5-game hitting streak, in which he’s gone 7-for-20 (.350) with two doubles and a home run. He’s batting .218 on the season, after batting .238 in High-A in 2022.
- Vaun Brown was DH, and went 2-for-4 and drew a walk in the team’s big rally, but also struck out twice. Over six games at Richmond, Brown now has a .333/.407/.583 batting line, with a double, a triple, and a home run, with two walks, but to 11 strikeouts in 24 at-bats.
- Simon Whiteman went 1-for-3 with a walk. Whiteman’s been cold in May after a great April, going 9-for-60 (.150) with 10 walks to 17 strikeouts in the month.
- Mason Black had a rough game, giving up a season-high six runs in 3.1 innings, on on a season-high six hits (two of which were home runs) and four walks, with just two strikeouts. Black’s ERA jumped up from 4.60 to 5.79 after this game. He now has 41 strikeouts to 14 walks in 32.2 innings.
Game 1: Everett 4, Eugene 2 (7 Innings) Link https://preview.redd.it/jhvyovn5aj2b1.jpg?width=2496&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=6ac3d89b640a7c05dd3ede160b051ecb9ffea744
Game 2: Everett 8, Eugene 6 (7 Innings) Link https://preview.redd.it/2oxvula6aj2b1.jpg?width=2496&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=f55cd288a030c24e59c3449b38ec764471a39ce0
- It was just a difficult day for Eugene. In Game 1, Everett scored four runs in the first three innings and never looked back, as their pitcher Reid VanScoter threw a complete 7-inning game. In Game 2, Eugene was the “road” team because this game was a makeup of a rainout from Everett, and jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the top of the 1st, but Everett scored three runs in each of the first two innings. Eugene rallied in the 9th, down 8-4, with a double and two singles to lead off the inning, and then a 1-out double by Jimmy Glowenke to make it 8-6. A HBP loaded the bases with one out, but Eugene wouldn’t get anything else.
- Damon Dues was one of the team leaders in Game 2, going 3-for-4 with two doubles and a steal, although he was 0-for-2 in Game 1. In 33 games, Dues now has seven doubles but no other extra base hits, but also has 19 walks to 26 strikeouts. That evens out to a .295/.408/.362 batting line. His 12 steals puts him one off his season high, when he had 13 in 2022 over 30 games.
- Logan Wyatt also had three hits in Game 2, for three singles and three RBI, though he was 0-for-3 with two strikeouts in Game 1. Wyatt now has a batting line of .260/.362/.440 in 40 games, with 24 walks to 41 strikeouts.
- Victor Bericoto combined for a 3-for-7 day with all singles. Getting hits on both sides of the day means his hitting streak is up to eight games, as he’s gone 11-for-32 (.344) over that span. He’s got a batting line of .303/.347/.503 on the year after 40 games.
- The team’s leading hitter in Game 1 was Aeverson Arteaga, who took Game 2 off. Arteaga went 2-for-3 with a double, his tenth of the season. Arteaga now has a batting line of .211/.308/.404, and has ten doubles, three triples, and five home runs.
- Game 1 starter John Bertrand struggled early, getting hit hard, giving up two home runs and two doubles en route to four runs on seven hits and a walk, in 5.0 innings. He struck out four. It was Bertrand’s first start of the season in nine appearances between San Jose and Eugene, and now has a 4.50 ERA in High-A, with 13 strikeouts to two walks in 16.0 innings.
- Game 2 starter Seth Lonsway had similar early problems, giving up six runs in 2.0 innings, on five hits, two walks, and a HBP, with four strikeouts, and one 3-run home run. Lonsway now has a 7.50 ERA, and a .318 batting average allowed.
- Reliever Ben Madison handled the final two innings in Game 1, striking out five in 2.0 innings, though he had two wild pitches, one on a strikeout that allowed a baserunner to get on (the only baserunner he allowed). Madison has 37 strikeouts to 15 walks in 21.0 innings, and has a 4.71 ERA.
- José Cruz went 2.1 scoreless relief innings in Game 2, allowing just one hit with three strikeouts. Cruz now has a 1.62 ERA, with 24 strikeouts to seven walks in 16.2 innings.
Low-A: San Jose 7, Modesto 1 Link https://preview.redd.it/ig6yfsy6aj2b1.jpg?width=2496&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=1a84a18f7702ceb6dee542a30f684c9232d7e640 San Jose Notes:
- The Giants made it easy on their first round pick making his debut in a different place. Reggie Crawford made his pitching debut, and it was a successful one, even if it was short. But the rest of the staff followed it up, and the San Jose offense was in gear, behind two home runs and two triples, leading to a big 7-1.
- 2022 1st round pick Reggie Crawford was on the mound for the first time in a pro game, going 1.2 innings, giving up no runs, no walks, and just two hits, with three strikeouts. Crawford has been in two games as a DH in limited time, going 0-for-3 with a strikeout, and that will continue.
- Reliever Esmerlin Vinicio struck out four in 2.1 scoreless innings, giving up a hit and a walk. It was Vinicio’s first game without a run in the last three, as he’d allowed nine runs over the last two appearances over 4.1 innings.
- The majority of the innings went to Gerelmi Maldonado, as he went 4.0 innings, giving up a run on two hits and a walk, while striking out six. Maldonaldo has a 5.14 ERA over nine appearances, with 32 strikeouts to 23 walks in 28.0 innings.
- Center fielder Carter Howell went 2-for-5 with a home run, his fourth of the season. That extends Howell’s batting streak to ten games, with six of them being multiple hits. His batting average has moved up from .315 to .337 over that span, with five doubles, two triples, and three home runs in the streak.
- Second baseman Andrew Kachel also had a home run, going 1-for-4 with two strikeouts. Kachel now has all three of his home runs this season over his last eight games. Kachel has a batting line of .299/.393/.479 on the season.
- Shortstop Jose Ramos went 1-for-4 with a triple, his third of the season. Ramos has struggled in May, going just 11-for-73 (.151) with a double, two triples, and a home run.
- Catcher Zach Morgan was 2-for-4 with a triple of his own, his first of the season. On the year, over 28 games, Morgan has a batting line of .206/.363/.330 with four doubles, a triple, and two home runs.
- Tanner O’Tremba, playing left field, went 2-for-3 with a double and a HBP. O’Tremba now has ten doubles, a triple, and three home runs over 34 games. He has a batting line of .270/.396/.443 with 14 walks to 33 strikeouts.

- Cofounder of an AI startup (12). I did this with a couple graduate students I knew and we've raised a decent amount in early funding. Dropped all other ECs senior year to focus on this.
- AI research at a T5 over the summer (11). I was accepted into a very selective program. Didn't publish anything but it was a good experience for college apps
- AI research at another T5 (10). Published a paper into a fairly reputable journal (not lead author though)

Letters of Recommendation
- 3x USACO plat (9,10,11)
- Winner of a prestigious national coding comp (11)
- Finalist in another prestigious tech comp (10)
- National Merit Semifinalist (11)
Math Teacher (9/10): I knew him super well and we work together for the peer-tutoring program. We often talk during lunch.
English Teacher (7/10): I'm a good student but I don't know her as well as the math. I'm active in her class though and she seemed excited when I asked if she would write me a letter.
Professor at T5 (7/10): I worked with this guy everyday. Our relationship was pretty much limited to only technical stuff, but I think he had a lot to say. Interviews
MIT (first interview, dream school): Went really well and I clicked with the interviewer. She asked a lot of technical questions about my research, but I answered them well and she seemed impressed. I tried to act a lil "quirky" during the interview (since MIT's culture is like that) and she mentioned I'd be a good fit.
Princeton: Went well. Mostly talked about ECs and why I want to go.
Cornell: This was non evaluative. Consisted mostly of my interviewer talking about how the school was
Columbia: No interview :(
Harvard: Went well. The interviewer seemed impressed over how I name dropped certain professors and research groups I want to join.
Stanford: Nothing special. Mostly talked about why I wanted to go to the school. The interview ended in like 30 minutes :(. Essays
Common App Essay (10/10): I spent 3 months pouring over this and it is honestly the best thing I have ever written. I spent like a month just outlining literary techniques and stuff I would use and it helped a ton. I had an English professor at my local college read it and say that it was "one of the better" student-written works they've seen. Lowkey trauma dumping (my hs english teacher cried when she read it) but I guess it worked
Supplemental (7/10): Half of these were done like a week before the deadline. They related to my ECs pretty well though and I was able to elaborate on my research experiences. Decisions (indicate ED/EA/REA/SCEA/RD)
EA (0 safeties baby)
- MIT (dream school frfr): Deferred 😭 (I was expecting this but it still hurt)
- Georgia Tech OOS: Accepted
- UT Austin OOS: Accepted
- UC Berkeley IS: Accepted in an early wave
- Caltech (first decision): Rejected (This coupled with the MIT deferral crushed my hopes over the next couple weeks)
- MIT: ACCEPTED (WTF. Was 100% expecting a rejection)
- Cornell: Accepted
- Columbia: Accepted
- Princeton: Accepted (full ride)
- Harvard: Accepted (almost a full ride)
- Stanford: Rejected
- CMU: Waitlisted
MIT has always been my dream school and I was ecstatic when I got in, but the FA was TRASH. I adored the school when I visited. As I began to visit the other schools, I also really enjoyed Princeton. Cornell felt too isolated and Columbia was too urban, but Princeton fell right in the middle. I was still dead set on MIT though.
It was an incredibly difficult decision, but I chose Princeton. As much as I loved MIT, the tuition was too much for my family, and I couldn't pass up on the full ride. Go tigers!

2023.05.28 06:10 Yeatstan5000 UW Math vs UofG SENG vs Ottawa CS vs Western CS
I'm most likely wanting to go into tech, and have these 4 options to choose from all with co-op (besides Western). UW math has the opportunity to minor in computing and has a great co-op, and also I do live in Waterloo. Guelph software eng seems to have a really good program that seems cool and project based, which is probably good for finding jobs. And then there's Ottawa where my parents really want me to go but l'm not too sure how Ottawa is or if I want to go there. Then there is also Western but I probably wouldn’t go there because there’s no co-op. What's my best option?

2023.05.28 02:39 thetissuepaper Chance me for Duke ED, Emory, WashU, Northwestern, URochester, Rice, Georgia Tech, UF, Case Western
Location: Not well known state in the South, not that represented like the Bay Area, TX, or NY. It's in the Deep South.
No hooks LMAO
Major: Different majors for each school lmao, it will either be neuro/psych or chemE on the pre med track
Public school, not that competitive, only a few people actually try to go to a good school, it's a bum ass school if I'm being honest, it doesn't send that many people to top schools, usually only 2-3 each year
ACT: 35, 36 Superscore
GPA: 4.4 W 3.98 UW I have a good rank, not valedictorian or salutatorian but good
Coursework: idk if this is rigorous enough so I took no APs freshman year cause my dumbass didn't know shit about them so I tried to redeem myself by taking 2 sophomore year but got a B in one of them and 6 junior year (all As :)). My scores are gonna be shit. I signed up for 8 senior year :)
ECs (they're trash don't judge me there's literally nothing to do at my school or my area)
- Research at my local uni (it's cool stuff, I don't clean stuff I actually conduct experiments and contribute to writing a research paper)
- An internship that lasted a few weeks (did lab research on something meaningful that contributes to solving the region's problems, it was also really selective because only a single digit number of people got in, we presented our data and all of that, worked long ass hours everyday)
- Math team (our math team is shit, there were no leadership roles because the sponsor wanted to teach us the math himself, I won state awards and I was one of the 2 people to qualify for AIME)
- Debate team (didn't get captain because I wasn't the most experienced L, I only won a good state title that I got recognition from the school district but overall I was pretty shit at this activity)

LORs: I asked a humanities and STEM teacher. They agreed to write one :) Idk how good they will be. They did like me and I did my very best to participate in those classes. My STEM teacher knows me very well since I had her for a long time but I really don't think she's a good writer since she's not very good at her job. I think she'll write a decent LOR but I'll make sure to send a brag sheet
Essays: FUCKING HELL I DON'T FUCKING KNOW WHAT TO WRITE ABOUT WHAT THE FUCK WHAT THE FUCK WHAT THE FUCK
Ummmmm so I have a few ideas. My ideas are to write about my random hobbies and connect it to personal growth or some shit

(i) This is a combined synopsis/solicitation for commercial items prepared in accordance with the format in Subpart 12.6 as supplemented with additional information included in this notice. This announcement constitutes the only solicitation; proposals are being requested and a written solicitation will not be issued.
(ii) The solicitation number is 75N95023Q00352 and the solicitation is issued as a request for quotation (RFQ). The anticipated award date is May 31, 2023.
This acquisition is for a commercial item or service and is conducted under the authority of the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) Part 13—Simplified Acquisition Procedures; and FAR Part 12—Acquisition of Commercial Items, and is not expected to exceed the simplified acquisition threshold.
THIS IS A NON-COMPETITIVE (NOTICE OF INTENT) COMBINED SYNOPSIS SOLICITATION TO AWARD A CONTRACT OR PURCHASE ORDER WITHOUT PROVIDING FOR FULL OR OPEN COMPETITION (INCLUDING BRAND-NAME).
The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), Office of Acquisition (OA), on behalf of the National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (NCATS), intends to negotiate and award a purchase order without providing for full and open competition (including brand-name) to FUJIFILM CELLULAR DYNAMICS, INC., 465 SCIENCE DR., MADISON, WI 53711, 608-310-5100 for Induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) derived human neurons and astrocytes.
This acquisition is conducted as non-competitive for a commercial item or service and is conducted pursuant to FAR 13.106-1(b)(1).
The rationale for the brand-name justification is based on vendor previous supply of iPSC derived human neurons and astrocytes. NCATS has extensively characterized them in current assay protocol with a robust HTS compatible neuronal spheroid model using iPSC derived neurons (glutamatergic, GABAergic, and dopaminergic) and iPSC derived astrocytes for robust cultures for investigating viral infection.
(iii) The solicitation document and incorporated provisions and clauses are those in effect through Federal Acquisition Circular (FAC) Number 2023-02, with effective date 03/16/2023.
(iv) The associated NAICS code is 325414 Biological Product (except Diagnostic) Manufacturing and the small business size standard is 1,000 employees. This requirement is not set-aside to small business.
(v) The National Institutes of Health (NIH) is the nation’s leading medical research agency and the primary Federal agency whose mission is to seek fundamental knowledge about the nature and behavior of living systems and the application of that knowledge to enhance health, lengthen life, and reduce illness and disability, conducting, supporting and making medical discoveries that improve people’s health and save lives.
NCATS is one of 27 Institutes and Centers at the NIH and its mission is to catalyze the generation of innovative methods and technologies that will enhance the development, testing and implementation of diagnostics and therapeutics across a wide range of human diseases and conditions.
The NCATS DPI plans and conducts collaborative research projects across the preclinical phases of the translational science spectrum, using both internal and contract resources to advance them.
The NCATS DPI ETB’s goal is to uncover new small molecule therapeutics and advance the process of therapeutic development through a model of collaborative research. For each collaboration, external disease experts team with the ETB’s drug discovery teams, who provide access to small molecule screening, medicinal chemistry and informatics expertise.
Moreover, NCATS has become a key partner in the Antiviral Program for Pandemics (APP), a multi-agency initiative that includes National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) and Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (BARDA), to accelerate antiviral development through early discovery and preclinical development of safe and effective oral antivirals. The initial priority for the APP is to develop treatments for SARS-CoV-2 and other coronaviruses, with the program expanding to address other virus families with pandemic potential. NCATS will apply its proficiency in drug discovery and development and its cutting-edge technologies to fill critical needs of the APP, such as (i) target validation, (ii) high-throughput screening (HTS) for drug starting points, (iii) medicinal chemistry for lead optimization, and (iv) preclinical, investigational new drug (IND)-enabling development
The APP is tasked with identifying and developing antivirals for a variety of viruses of outbreak and pandemic potential, including a number of neurotrophic viruses (e.g. encephalitic bunyavirales viruses, flaviviruses, alphaviruses). NCATS has developed a robust HTS compatible neuronal spheroid model using iPSC derived neurons (glutamatergic, GABAergic, and dopaminergic) and iPSC derived astrocytes for robust cultures for investigating viral infection. NCATS has developed this model specifically using FujiFilm/CDI iPSC derived neurons and astrocytes.
Thus, NCATS DPI ETB requires Induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) human cell-derived differentiated cells for high-throughput screening (HTS) for fluorescent imaging plate reader (FLIPR) and functional screening as well as viral infections.
(vi) The Purchase Description (PD) with a description of the products to be acquired is included as an attachment to this Solicitation.
The Early Translation Branch (ETB), under the Division of Preclinical Innovation (DPI), within the National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (NCATS) seeks to purchase Induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) derived human neurons and astrocytes for high-throughput screening (HTS) for fluorescent imaging plate reader (FLIPR) and functional screening as well as viral infections for use in DPI- Antiviral Program for Pandemics (APP) Biology Antiviral Drug Development IDDA DPI (8051491).

: Male Race
: East Asian School
: competitive large public school, send around 30 kids to T20 plus more to Berkeley/LA etc probably State
: southern CA Income
: ~200K for 5, HCOL Intended Major(s):
Wanted to do Applied math and Enviro science, but since most of my ECs ended up leaning toward enviro sci/earth sci Ill just apply as either earth sci or atmospheric science for some schools and a double major with math for others. SAT
: 1590 ACT : 36 (Took ACT early in high school, but since ROTC doesn’t accept scores from then 💀 I had to take the SAT this year) UW/W GPA and Rank
: 4.0 UW, no weighted, no rank Coursework
: Tests: AB, BC, Physics 1, CS A (all 5), Chem, APUSH, Lang, Stats. Dual enrollment: stellar astronomy, multi variable calculus (A for both) Next year senior: AP French Linear Algebra Ap Physics C AP Lit Art AP Gov/Econ Awards
: idk I’ll pick 5 of the following
- National merit (1510 PSAT)
- Training camp for a small Olympiad related to my major (Top 25ish? in the US, not a large Olympiad like MOP but I believe 500+ competitors)
- astronomy comp semi Finalist (international online astronomy competition, not as prestigious as it sounds bcuz it’s a non Olympiad affiliated private thing but cool experience)
- 4 x AIME qualifier, AMC 10 DHR
- USACO silver - probably will not put
- **** award for environmental science at local science fair, single best project in 500, small cash prize
- Presidents Volunteer Service Award, Gold (probably won’t list)
: - Captain of school sports team, #1 player. Regionals qualifier for another school sport
- President of math club, CO-VP of science Olympiad: pretty self explanatory. Chief engineer of aerospace club as well.
- paid internship this summer with the city, creating a program to help residents live greener and more sustainably. Will interview experts and do some cool shit hopefully
- Volunteer and guide at aviation museum, occasionally help out restoring models as well. Started last summer
- research paper for the science fair project I did, and am currently working with a JHU researcher who was interested in my work. The research is really not super complicated, but it’s something related to my sport. Hope to just publish
- paid coach at sports academy, also created a charity camp for the past 3 years that raised 3k for charity and taught 30+ kids.
- president of a volunteer organization (10 years old), do recycling, various community stuff.
Smaller: 1 month internship at local biotech lab: cool stuff - will look for more enviro sci or earth sci stuff this summer. Hooks
: ROTC isn’t really a hook but I heard it can help. I was offered the NROTC ISR scholarship, and I’m applying for the AFROTC as well.
LOR: I think they’re going to be pretty good but I don’t think anyone can accurately chance their own LORs.
List: I’m trying to get recruited to D3 schools, but injury took me out of the game for a while. Mainly down to MIT and Caltech. Problem is that I’m slightly out of MIT’s recruiting range now, but I can do ROTC for MIT. Should I do MIT early with ROTC and give up Caltech recruiting (which, granted, isn’t that big of a boost), or go with Caltech? Also need recs for schools that have decent ROTC programs. My top 5 are MIT, Stanford, Harvard, and then idk the last 2.
Chance me for T10s - if I don’t get in, I’m happy with going to the military academies anyways.

I'm a UC Berkeley student doing an internship in Madison this summer and I'm staying near the university; there are no other interns at the office so I'm looking for folks to recreate with! I'm a rock climber and I also love hiking, swimming, and long distance cycling. I was wondering if UW Madison has any groups open to the community dedicated to outdoor sports and such? Thanks!

i am still in shock that i got accepted. sure i have good stats and worked hard but compared to people i have seen with national awards, competitions, etc. my application seemed very average. i don’t think anything in particular really made me stand out, but i think that i was just a good fit for northwestern. of course do not overlook having good stats and writing essays that mean a lot to you but try and find your dream school where most students are very similar to you!
also something funny about my northwestern application. i actually forgot to submit my ap scores so i had to email them and send a picture
another note: i wasn’t even going to apply to northwestern until october of the year i was applying. i was originally going to apply to vanderbilt ED. just trust your gut on making decisions and it will work out
best of luck to everyone applying in the future and i hope this helped!

2023.05.27 17:28 GTW2018 Here’s why Waterloo co-op is #1
I’m gonna be downvoted by UW stan’s but it needs to be said. The big reason why UW co-op beats other schools in tech is because of the people here, not because of school resources. In fact, the co-op department career support isn’t really helpful, they will side with companies when they cancel co-ops.
Look at the UW co-op percentages
, CS is 68% and Math is only 45%, even though they take the exact same first year CS courses and apply to the exact same SWE co-ops. Why is CS so much higher then? Because those kids are more tryhard on average if they got into CS.
Personally, every job I got in CS including my first co-op was externally. Applying to 500 co-ops on waterlooworks doesn’t guarantee you a single interview, there’s just too much internal competition in WW. Most big tech companies have stopped hiring UW exclusively and left waterlooworks since covid btw. This isn’t a recession effect, they just prefer to hire earlier before cycle 1 starts.
My advice is this, if you’re deciding between CS at another school or UW math/an engineering program with minimal CS, don’t expect UW co-op to spoonfeed you tech jobs over better qualified CS/SE students.

2023.05.27 16:21 MxPipes Finding out what my insurance will cover for top surgery
I have a couple doctors in Madison, WI (both within the UW-Madison health system, Dr. Gast and Dr. Israel, if anyone is familiar) that I’d like to know if they’re covered, but I’ve never had to call my insurance to ask about coverage before so I’m not really sure what to ask or how to ask it. Do I first tell them I’m looking at top surgery? Do I just give them the names of the doctors and/or the health system? Any guidance or tips from folx who have done this already would be greatly appreciated, this is one of the steps that’s causing me the most anxiety rn but I want to know what my insurance will cover before reaching out to schedule a consultation. TIA!

2023.05.27 08:34 Repulsive-Manner2945 Confused About Missing High School Prerequisites
I tried to enroll in Math 249, Physics 211, Biology 241 and Chemistry 201 for my first year first semester, yet I was met with "Enrollment Requisites are not met" and that I'm missing all of Mathematics 30-1, Biology 30 and Chemistry 30 prerequisites.
However, I should be eligible for Biology 241 and Chemistry 201 transfer credits (nothing showing up on the portal though).
Is it that I took a gap year that my high school credits are gone for good?
(I've completed IB diploma and took HL Biology, HL Chemistry and SL Math Analysis & Approaches; all >=5)

2023.05.27 07:23 user372929383 UTM CS VS UW MATH/BUS VS UTSG MATH AND PHYSICAL SCIENCES
I got deferred from UTSG CS to Math and Physical Sciences, I’m not sure if I can switch into CS from there. Not a fan of downtown though.
UTM post is apparently really hard but I’m willing to put in the work. How much and how hard is it really though? Does commuting make it harder or should I live on res? (Money doesn’t matter)
UW Math is a safe play because I like the courses in IT Management and I can still get software co-op, but the degree isn’t as good as a CS one.
But at the end none of these are CS and CS was my original goal. UTM gives me a chance to redeem myself and get CS, but UW let’s me take a safer route and I can self-learn things I lack in my degree and also minor in computing.
Which path should I take?

2023.05.27 05:59 Least_Key4759 Chance Me! (Rising Senior)
Demographics: White male, rural school in West Tennessee (local population of approximately 2,000).
Intended majors: Biology / Pre-Med (planned dermatology career).
SAT and ACT: Have not taken the SAT as it is not common around my area, but my ACT score is a 34 composite; planned on retaking in July.
GPA and Rank: 4.0 UW, #2 with just GPA (99.71 average) but #1 with ACT factored (out of 137 for context).
Coursework: 4 Dual Enrollments, 11 Honors. Our school does not do AP, so we do Dual Enrollment through the University of Tennessee. Planned on taking Calculus, Trigonometry, and Statistics my senior year, as well as English Composition II. I made an A in English Comp I, which is notorious as being the hardest in our school due to its intensive course load and strict grading scale, and As in all honors and DE math, science, english, and history classes.
Awards and Honors: 1st State FBLA Financial Math, 4th State FBLA Business Calculations, 2nd and 3rd State Beta Engineering (consecutive), 5th State FFA Livestock Judging (both individual and team), and many regional FFA, FBLA, and 4-H titles.
-FFA Chapter President, FFA Regional VP, 4-H County VP, 4-H Regional Representative, FBLA Chapter VP, Beta Chapter VP, Class President, and Student Council President. -I am a member of HOSA (3 years), FBLA (3 years), Spirit Club (2 years), FFA (3 years), 4-H (7 years), Beta Club (5 years), Mu Alpha Theta (2 years), and Student Council (3 years). -I do both Cross Country and Tennis for my school (3 years for XC and 2 for tennis). -I have over 200 hours of community service through my school and I also perform regular community service through my church. -I have a job doing farm work and maintenance, I mow and maintain my church yard, and I have a farm at home that I am also involved in. -I have been admitted into the TN Governor’s School for the Ag Sciences, and have attended FBLA SLC twice, Beta Convention five times, and FFA convention three times. I have also recently served on a State FFA Committee, as well as assisted in planning our school’s prom this year.
Additional: I am alright with higher-level out-of-state universities or ones slightly outside of TN, but I would like to stay inside the state to take advantage of in-state tuition. My list of schools currently includes any of the Ivy Leagues, Ole Miss, the University of TN at Knoxville, UChicago, and Vanderbilt (Vandy is my #1 choice).

2023.05.27 05:40 cream_of_the_crisis Jewish humanities nerd copes after dropping Jewish humanities nerd school
Hi to anyone who ends up recognizing me! Let’s do this.
School: Competitive public, grad class of about 500
Intended Majors: Some combo of English and Secondary Education depending on the school
GPA: 3.97ish UW/school doesn’t calculate weighted
Honors: I believe 12 overall
Senior Year Course Load: AP Lit, AP Statistics, Honors Film Studies, Honors Ethics, Ceramics, Modern Physics, Chorus
1470 on SAT, 740 RW 730 M (took it once)
- Co-music director for my acapella group (10-12)
- Camp counseloring (11-12)
- Chorus + honors choir (9-12)
- Peer tutoring (11)
- History TA (11)
(Not a whole lot going on here)
- Departmental English award, fairly generic but meaningful for me
History teacher (8/10): had him freshman and junior year, talked to him a lot throughout the year and developed a personal rapport; I think he truly, genuinely believed in my intellectual pursuits
Math teacher (6/10): I think she also genuinely believed in me, but I wasn’t as entirely passionate about the subject and she’s a bit kooky in general
Syracuse (7/10): felt like the interviewer wasn’t entirely feeling me but I gave solid and genuine answers and tried to connect personally
Common App: My best by far. Used it as a chance to exhibit my nerdiness and demonstrate my writing skill. Wrote about how my passion for D&D connects to my passion for teaching.
Why College: Blegh. I tried to add some personal detail but I felt like I just couldn’t make listing things about the school artful.
Providence: I thought this one was pretty good; wrote about how my love of film was cultivated on a flight to California.
Brandeis: Kinda cringe in hindsight, connected Frost’s idea of the “road less travelled” to taking Stats instead of Calc.
Decisions (spoiler: all acceptances!)
Syracuse University (10k per year+ dual major)
St. John Fisher University RA(15k per year)
Hofstra University EA(30k per year + honors college)
Marist College EA (20k per year + honors program)
Temple University EA (21k per year + honors college)
UVM EA (16k per year)
Providence College EA
Kenyon College (15k per year)
Brandeis University (no money :( )
Stony Brook University (11k per year + honors college) - ATTENDING!!!
A part of me wishes I did apply to some higher profile schools, but I realize that even if I got in, it would be the same heartbreak I felt with Brandeis when the combo of medium high income (200k+) plus high cost plus no merit made it prohibitively expensive. I’m intensely glad with where I’m ending up though, it’s absolutely the right place for me. Nothing from Providence and getting SBU honors college (15,000 apps for 100 slots) but not UVM are still headscratchers, though.

: AP scholar with distinction, Hadassah Chesed Award (for being an active contributor to the ATL area Jewish community), BBYO Godol of the year (president of the year for my BBYO chapter, see below), if anything else it's probably insignificant Extracurriculars
(if y'all need clarification let me know):
- Solves Rubik's Cubes competitively (have been to regional/national champs) and teaches others occasionally
- BBYO (large international organization for Jewish teenagers) local chapter president, have put a ton of work in digging us from out of the ground since covid into a strong chapter (this has been a ton of work it's a massive grind lol)

Reaches: Vanderbilt (may ED), Northwestern (may ED), UPenn, UNC Chapel Hill, Yale, Johns Hopkins, Brown
Georgia Tech, which is probably not a reach considering a) in-state and b) 40% of my school's IB seniors get accepted to tech each year (& I'm top 5% of overall class rn), but it's still a fantastic school so I'm hesitant to say target
Targets/safeties (maybe help me figure out which is which?): Maryland, Wisconsin, Alabama, Syracuse, Pitt, Georgia State, Kennesaw State
