Fast 6 was awesome.

There were plenty a scene which made me shake my head at the level of physics defying (one scene in particular made me think I watching man of steel for a second) actually most of the movie was like that, but it was fun. Dat end scene though,

Don't want to spoil anything but you won't see it coming.

What about the UC system don't you like? Just curious
The UC system seemed to be designed around a plan of get in, get degree, get out, and do so as fast as possible.

I've decided I like learning and applying/testing what I've learned more than anything else, and going at a slower pace is what keeps it enjoyable.

What I like and what the UC system offers just don't really line up.

Also, UCSC is closer than Merced.

UCSC doesn't do mechanical engineering. Too useful and uptight of a major.

Most people who do college at a slow pace are either milking it to party longer ... or working through it to support one's self and/or family

If neither of those apply, you should finish at a "normal" pace and get on with your life

Uh, what you like doesn't line up with any college system. You are meant to get in and get out in 4 years (2 years if you are a transfer student). You are expected to take a full load every quarter semester. Breezing through, one class at a time isn't really the point of going to school. If you want to test your knowledge, join a club lol.

This reminds me.... I believe when I transferred, they said that we had a maximum of 3 years to get our degree.

Not exactly. Clearly you miss the irony in your claim of being "well qualified" to pick a school, after you've switched schools 3-4+ times.
