    MGT 499 - Strategic Management
    FIN 310 - Investments
    BUS 498 - Interdisciplinary Business Seminar
    ACC 202 - Managerial Accounting

    I just completed a research paper for investments and I have a cumulative final the first week of May.

    Interdisciplinary business, I have develop an hour and half presentation for Midwest Air Group, detailing my position on future growth and petitioning a bank, in today's tightened credit market, for a $500 million loan. There's a 30page paper to go along with the presentation.

    Strategic Management. This coming Friday I have to put on a second group presentation. I chose to analyze BMW including their corporate, business, and functional strategies. I conducted an external PEST analysis as well as an internal analysis to complete a SWOT analysis. This is the second presentation we're putting on and it should last about two hours, but it should be easier the second time around - we set the standard for the first round of presentations.

    Managerial Accounting. I have to complete this semester long accounting project on a construction company and take the final. Classes ended early because we completed the course material faster than anticipated.

    All in all, I've had what was for me a semester of hell. I've only gone out a handful of times and most nights are spent in doing work or with the girlfriend, but normally doing work while the girlfriend is here. Its my last semester and I'm just glad that its unwinding without as huge of a crunch as during the semester. One week I only slept a handful of hours as I had two projects, the two hour presentation, a paper, quiz, and two tests. I think my professors decided that would be a funny week to make or break my semester.

    Your classes look VERY interesting. If you don't mind me asking, what's your major?

    My schedule looks like this:

    SOC 606 - Advanced Research Methodology
    CRM 597 - Foundations of Terrorism and Homeland Security
    CRM 596 - Methamphetamine in Missouri

    As far as finals, SOC 606 is a take home, but is VERY extensive - took me 15 hours to complete the take home mid-term. The special topics courses require a lengthy paper.

    The last two classes are "special topics" and I have them one-on-one with two professors. I am a graduate student studying Criminology :)

    bumping this back up cause the past few weeks have been crazy.

    i had 3 exams, 2 weeks ago, then my heat transfer design project was due a week after that. then my missiles design report was due (70 pages) on the same day as my controls final on monday, which took 3 hours. then on yesterday i had my missiles final, then today i had heat transfer final at 8am.

    now i have a little break until my spaceflight exam on saturday. controls was without a doubt the hardest exam. but hopefully i pulled off an A in it. i busted ass in that class this semester. spaceflight is looking like its going to be very hard as well. im just glad this semester is comming to a close. its been the semester from hell.

    Aero will get you paid. The demand is so high right now. I have a couple contacts at boeing for hiring, and they're literally bidding on students their senior year all up and down the west coast colleges.

    My boss has a PHD in Aero, and Mech from UW and worked at boeing making bank before he wanted be a stay at home dad.

    yea, ive been looking at this company that i might want to work for. (ATK) they arent too far. about half the distance between home and school. im just worried cause my grades suffered my middle 2 years and my GPA sucks. but dont get me wrong, i know my stuff, its just not exactly reflected in my GPA lol. i slacked, and im suffering for it now. im just afraid they wont even look at me.

    I'm sure I don't have to tell you, but maybe Calesta could help you out with the job search. One more Lockheed person on the board couldn't hurt.
