A couple of earlier pieces that don’t quite fit anywhere else:
A guide I’d written in 2003, for students coming to the US, based on my own experiences and learnings from others. Detailed, but hasn’t been revisited since mid-2004. Hopefully still somewhat useful..Guide to Applying (US, Engineering)
I’d called this The Karma Generatrix back in high-school, though now I have no idea why..
– took up a fair chunk of time to ‘work this out‘ (or not) & thoroughly enjoyed the process!
