2022.01.21 21:00 dababyyeah9 Course Selection Has Been Kicking My Ass, Just Got Worse :'(
I've thought about this a lot previously and beat myself down for it but now it's getting really bad so I'm hoping I can get any advice. For context, I go to a top high school (one of the most competitive high schools in the Bay Area I've seen my school's name on here a few times hint for Bay Area kids it's in the FUHSD), and also wanting to pursue CS as my major. So we just had the course selection presentation yesterday and it makes me feel so fucking bad man. So in 9th and 10th grade I had a pretty good schedule, but last year, due to online learning, I didn't really have anyone to talk to about course selection, so I kind of ended up making all of these decisions by myself, which is a mistake I regret to this day. While others are doing 3-4 AP's (like my courses + APUSH or + AP Phys C), I'm stupidly here doing Reg English/SS, Chem Honors, [Language] 4 Honors, Calculus BC, and CSA. Now you may think this is pretty good but this is really very less like I said before, compared to my peers who do way more, who I am directly going to be competing against. I'm only going to have 3 AP tests by College Apps (Phys 1, CSA, BC), while people out here have 5+. And what hurts even more is that some of these courses are actually pretty easy at my school to get an A, for some reason I was under the impression that it would've been really hard to get an A. Also what's annoying is that the teachers put in my mind that I can't take Phys C or AP Chem (because I didn't take chem yet, how funny that half the juniors are taking AP Chem as their first chem and my dumbass here didn't realize that you could do that). I'm trying to get into Berkeley but shit man I feel so stupid for taking easy ass courses. Just looking at the course selection sheet and all the courses I could've taken just makes me feel like so shit. To compensate I'm gonna take 6 AP's next year (4 AP class periods, b/c Phys C Mech & EM and AP Gov/Econ are each their own test but semester long courses, as well as a AP foreign language/culture and Stats), but man I really don't know if that's gonna be enough to compensate for these crazy kids and their crazy extra cirriculars (which I still lack 😭). I'm also gonna be doing 7 Dual Enrollment (all CS related) by when I apply and also I'll do MVC and Lin Alg in 12th grade. If I calculate everything correctly and get all A's, I should have a 4.61 GPA but man my course load is so weak 😭. Please don't try and tell me that no your courseload is good because I'm not here for pity or anything, especially because you don't know the crazy people I am going against (think USAMO, lots of AIME, USACO gold/plat, taking BC in 10th grade, etc. etc.). I feel like such a failure. I really just want your advice on how I can improve at this point to make myself more competitive, anything in the CS related area for EC's or any course advice. Thanks for coming to my rant.
TL;DR Dumbass kid goes to ultra competitive high school and takes easy courses because he didn't know anyone in online learning and didn't know how tough courses he could've taken and now really regrets it as it could be the downfall of his application for top UC's for CS.

2022.01.21 21:00 JakeRann Is every place in DR/Santo Domingo asking for vaccination cards now??
Was planning on going by I don’t have any of the COVID vaccines and won’t be getting them. Can you still go anywhere over there without the vaccine card? I heard some places aren’t asking but that most are. How is it over there right now??

2022.01.21 21:00 que_he_hecho [RANT] What is the point of a cover letter anymore? Does anyone actually read them?
Company advertises 200 open jobs, days, nights, weekends. Hiring both part time and full time. Hiring ad says positions require a college degree. I have it, a very specific and hard-to-find degree that is on point. Positions are for a critical front-line role dealing with You-Know-What that is messing with us worldwide.
I applied for a position, was offered the job, and accepted the rate of pay. Started talking about hours and told them exactly what was in my cover letter, that I am only available part time weekend nights for up to 3 nights per week. The ad listed that they were looking to fill a Sat/Sun position, either days or nights, 12hr shift. I'm good with that, give me weekend nights.
Hiring manager then rescinds the offer and says she didn't read my cover letter so didn't see that I am only available part time.
So WTF? Does anyone actually read a cover letter? How the F--- is anyone ever going to get a job if they won't hire for the hours they actually advertise?

2022.01.21 21:00 Lichskorpion How important is it to peer-review articles before applying to a tenure-track faculty position?
I know peer review is the backbone of science and is really something I'd like to commit to.
However, I'm being told that I need to review my priorities and that publishing papers in grad school is more important than peer-reviewing other papers. Formal peer-reviewing can come later in my career once I have secured a faculty position (perhaps).
Sure, you can put either the list of papers you reviewed on your CV, or a list of the journals for which you reviewed (especially if it's supposed to be double-blind). But just how important is it to peer articles before applying to a tenure-track faculty position?
Is it a "needle mover"? Is it a big influence on whether a department will hire you or not? Is this a "nice-to-have" but negligible factor relative to publications in the grand scheme of things? is it "just the same" as other volunteering activities or service?
Is it something that you should do once you have "enough papers"? Four? Five? Of course, it will depend on the field, but in your field, how many papers would that be? And how many peer reviews is "enough" before you start slowing down or going back to publishing? Two? Three?
There are many other benefits to peer review of course, like better knowledge of the latest research, better critical thinking skills, better science overall, etc. etc. But I'm mostly interested in the utility of peer-reviewing specifically for applying for a faculty position. Thanks
