Keep up the good work! If you WERE my kid you'd get a buck for each "A". But since you're not my kid here's what you get:
...the satisfaction of doing the best you could. That's better that any old grubby dollar, right? Right?
Anyway, good going! Hope you get a break before next term.

Thats pretty darn good!
I wonder, did you have the same grade point average as Steve7272?
His was pretty good too.
"Honestly, knowing I'm gonna post here helps keep me motivated to do well."
We just want to see how you younger guys are doing, thats all.
We think it's great that guys like you and steve7284 and snuffy are committed to the biz.
Now if all the teachers that are teaching do the same.....well it should get only better.

I hate to brag, but what the heck. My final GPA was 3.96 -- 24 A's and 1 B. Of course, I had the motivation of four wasted years of college a decade and a half earlier (and trying to push my kids to get good grades) to help me along.
But frankly, Spike, I'm not all that young. Thanks, though.

Well those are impressive grades. Congrats!
I do believe you matched mine, that makes about 30 people I've met that got grades like that.
So it looks like the pressure is on Flattop now.
Should be good motivation for him.
"Beat the OLD man"
which brings up the point....how old are you?

37 in Febuary here. Grades aren't nearly as important to me a learning something. I'd much rather get a B or C and feel like I learned something, than get an A and not learn anything(which has happened in many of my classes).
My main reason for the keeping up the grades is scholarship money!!

flattop, your 37 and just starting this?????
that takes some big ones. my hats off to you.
( I'm 48, Feb 16. but I've got almost 20 years in this biz)

I'm in the same ballpark as Flattop. I turned 38 last November, and I started school when I was 36. It was something I always wanted to do, and I figured if I didn't do it then, when would I?
|By Chefspike (Chefspike) on Monday, January 05, 2004 - 02:05 pm: Edit|
well I think it's great.
I became a firefighter at 42 so I'm the last one to think someone is too old.
except for Manny, he's too old for everything.

Two weeks for Christmas, paid of course!
The house is great, waiting for Elwood!
Damn, I'm I the only one here who started in the kitchen at 14???......I'll be 45 this May!!!!!!!!!

I started caddying at 12, washing dishes at 13 at the club, now here i sit 25 years later. this business has a way of choosing you, not the other way around.

How right you are.

He's as old as George, HaHaHaHa.
