To all of you who offered support and encouragement-

It helped me get through the tough times just knowing you guys were here. It worked. 3.9 average! I still can't believe it. It was tough to stay away from TT for so long, but I did manage to sneak in on occasion for a little motivation, (I called it homework, ME degree :thumbsup: )

Now I just need to polish up my resume and get copies sent out. Probably the hardest part of all.

Again, thanks everybody!

Congratulations! Not only did you graduate with an engineering degree (a difficult thing in and of itself) but you did it with a fantastic GPA. You should be proud. :thumbsup:

Oh, and Indy, I used to be able to do PDEs in my sleep, but not anymore. I was very good at them at one time, but that was long ago... I still remember my 2-day final exam for that class and it was only one thermodynamics problem. Yikes! :awww:

I'll take one of those too!

I"ll be graduating with my MBA in about 9 days- finally! And just think, it only took me 26 months after working a full time job too. Now I'll just have to figure out what I'm going to do with all my soon-to-be-had free time (and what I'm going to do with my new degree since it only set me back $40k). Mechanical Engineering is nice work, but unless you own the firm, dont plan on getting rich. :awww: When I finished my undergrad degree, I had stars in my eyes, and it only took about 5 years to figure out that I wasnt going to have the condo in Hawaii designing power plants.

If anyone out there is looking for a BSME w/P.E. and an MBA, willing to pay scads of money, and free use of the company jet, please send cash deposit and I'll consider your offer :lol: Just kidding...

Congratulations once again to the new graduates!!! :lol: ;) :thumbsup: :lol: :lol:

Great Job! :thumbsup:I've been working on a EE for about 6yrs, going to night school and will grad next semester.I'll probably end up with about a 3.1 are so due to kids, wife,thumper talk and trying to ride my WR atleast once a week. Studying is getting old :awww:. I'm getting my resume ready, and hoping the job market picks up around here. Good Luck with the job search. :thumbsup:

Pretty much in any engineering field you will not get rich, but you will live very comfortably. There certianly will be no vacationing Monaco to watch the F1 races or anything like that though.

I have been working as a EE out of college for 6 years now and I have more than paid for my schooling many times over... btw... congrats to everyone getting thier degrees this year!! Good job again!
