    I have nothing against business, except for the fact that my school, the vast majority of biztechs cheat on tests, and the fact that a lot of people who have difficulty with engineering switch over to biztech.

    Anyone from UEA? I did Biology, sometimes thought to myself that I should have done a comp sci related degree, especially when my cells weren't playing ball and taking up DNA. But have to admit that I'm glad I didn't as otherwise messing with my own PC at home would not have been fun... Might do a masters in Bioinformatics, working in a lab at the mo which use's a lot of it and seems like a pretty interesting field....

    I'm a first year historian at Christ's College, Cambridge. Arts students unsurprisingly seem a rarity around here.

    BSc in Business Studies from Lancaster Uni, followed by an MSc in E-Business and Innovation, which was actually pretty cool. One of our lecturers help develop the Internet way back when. He was an interesting guy, but really, really fat. :lol:

    Too true. We tried in the first year, but by the second year we'd discovered a secret flight sim in Excel '97, and an online 2D side scrolling game where you guided a sperm up a woman, and that was the end of hard work.
