Wtf, mine was 2gigs. Clearly UIUC doesn't actually want me.


Haha I don't know about that... but mine is definitely 4GB. 1.94 used, 1.85 available.


"Definitely" 4 gigs? Can you do math?

His math works if you know the numbering conventions used for storage.

The drive is 4GBs, that is 4*1000^3 bytes. However, most operating systems still interpret a GB as 1024^3. This results in any drive you get reporting less GBs than advertised.

It's ok, you still get about 93% of what was advertised. That's about an A.

Errrr...

Maybe not, I guess it depends on the curve now. :|

Thanks friends :) Literally, I did not expect that much $. I'm still pretty speechless, as Chi is one place I'd love to end up in the long run.

A 3.44 is a misleading GPA ? So what is a 2.9x ? lol :oops:

Hopefully Dean Pless's misleading GPA radar is SUPER GOOD and they love my super cool LSAT score.
