Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaJust sent off my uni application too. Moment of truth. I could hear back from them in a day, a week, or a month... #4852 20121002 04:03:17
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaHi; In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #4853 20121002 04:13:34
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaThanks. The outcome of this could change my life. Feeling a bit nervous, because they allow you to choose 5 unis max, and all of mine were highrisk. Nothing I can do about it now though. Just wondering if I made a fatal error somewhere in my application. I had a look at my reference today and it is actually not that good... they ask your different subject teachers to write something about you. They're not allowed to say anything negative, but each teacher is supposed to write about 150250 words and my chemistry teacher barely wrote 2, very generic lines. Full of typos too. Probably took them less than a minute to write. I wish they could put more time into it, that could potentially cost me a place. #4854 20121002 04:18:23
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaStop worrying about what those teachers did. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #4855 20121002 04:26:19
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaI can't help but worry though. My concern is that some of the information is just factually incorrect. They did not even write my grades properly, arguably the most important part of your application. #4856 20121002 04:29:36
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaNothing to be done about it right now is there? never worry about the things you have no control of. It just causes premature aging. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #4857 20121002 04:32:04
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaWell, I could email my referee and tell him to withdraw my application, change it, and send it again. But I do not think it will be of any use. Whenever I ask him to patch up a technicality, he ends up making it into more of a mess. #4858 20121002 04:34:56
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaAgain, you are just proving that you have no control over it so why worry? In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #4859 20121002 04:40:24
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaI might have some control over it because I can write letters to unis, call them up, etc... #4860 20121002 04:43:47
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaYou could also turn in a 747 and fly over here to see me. It is a very low order of probability though. If there is something within reason to do, then do it. If not then you should not worry about it. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #4861 20121002 04:47:39
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaIt is borderline within reason and not within reason. I am just a bit worried because of all the warning signs about how they can and will terminate my application and can prosecute me if any data has been omitted, etc. etc. blah blah blah. I will try not to think about it. #4862 20121002 04:50:56
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaThey can not prosecute you. You did not even write it. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #4863 20121002 04:52:52
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaThat is true, although I did look over it. #4864 20121002 05:00:59
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaCould you have changed it? Or could you contact the university? In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #4865 20121002 05:05:08
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaMy referee is writing a supplementary letter to them anyway to explain my situation regarding only doing 2 subjects this year, so I can probably fit something in. #4866 20121002 05:16:01
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaThen do that. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #4867 20121002 05:22:34
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaSuccess is failing 1000 times out of 1000 and continuing to fail perpetually? Honestly if I got to that stage I would just forget about it since there would clearly be something wrong with me. I can apply this logic to studying or a competition or designing an idea, but I would want one success eventually. Not permanent failure. #4868 20121002 05:34:42

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #4869 20121002 06:17:48
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaBut I just do not think I would have the confidence to keep going, if I had 1000 rejections out of 1000. That would surely be some kind of record. #4870 20121002 06:20:26
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaProbably not. The great thing about the world is that no matter how good you are there is always eventually someone better. No matter how bad you are... In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #4871 20121002 06:21:11
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaThere surely cannot be out there in that situation... #4872 20121002 06:25:53
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula
Those quotes in #4868 are from Edison. He failed 10000 times. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #4873 20121002 06:48:07
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaI don't think I could have the perseverance he did. #4874 20121002 06:51:14
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaSeptember 2013! That is a whole year away. Are you just going to sit on your duff for that long? In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #4875 20121002 06:52:23
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaYes, that is how the year will probably end up being. I predicted the same thing for 2012 too.
