Re: Sanity Check with Tution and Fees

The sponsor letter said its valid for the Fall 2019 and Spring 2020 semesters, so I'm not sure the if there is any specific way it should be done, but my university has only charged SMART for the Fall semester as of now and not the Spring semester. This is partially because my university doesn't eve...

Re: Facilities that Seek Mechanical Engineers

Even though there may be a lot of facilities that take in mechanical engineers, the number positions they have available can vary a lot. For example, ARDEC probably takes in quite a few mechanical engineers because they do a lot of work with various mechanical systems, whereas Marine Corp Systems Co...

Re: Way Too Much Spam

Pretty sure it means that those of us with accounts that replied in the thread literally have moderator privileges now. For example, I noticed that I had them, so I cleaned up the General Questions section this morning.

Re: What to do to improve chances next round

I'm a mechanical engineer, and much like you, I applied to SMART my first year in college, made it to the semifinalist round, then didn't receive an award. I think part of the reason why was because I had two of my letters of recommendation from high school teachers since I didn't know any professor...

Re: Who receives the applications at the SF?

From my understanding, it varies from facility to facility. I tried contacting one of my preference facilities through a phone number I found on what I thought was the correct department page, but I ended up being referred to about 4 different people, one after the next, until I finally got the righ...

I'm a freshmen in my first semester at a well known Virginia school. Currently I am in the required gen eds and intro engineering courses with huge class sizes which has left little room to get know my professors at all. Would it be acceptable to use my physics and calculus teachers from high school...
