Anonymous asked: hi, I'm the anon from before! regarding cross referencing in digital textbooks- do professors cross reference often? I also tend to highlight books, so with that in mind what would you say is more convenient (digital vs print)?


I know this is vague, but it really does depend on the professor and the nature of the class. I find it very uncomfortable to write directly on textbooks (probably conditioning from high school…), so I prefer annotating digitally on my tablet (I have a Samsung Galaxy Note 8 with a stylus). Sometimes I also print out textbook pages to further annotate. But it depends on your learning style.

If you like print textbooks, go for it! I believe that the majority of students use print/physical textbooks. You definitely don’t need to bring textbooks to class, so I suppose it’s not too much of an inconvenience. Just keep in mind when you want to lug your books around to study at the library!

Another note on textbooks: In freshman year (when I was pre-med and took a lot of science courses), I used textbooks a lot more. But now, as a Marketing/Computer Science major, notes in class are sufficient, and I don’t actually buy any of the textbooks.

Anonymous asked: hi! i'm gonna be a freshman at wustl this fall and i was wondering whether students preferred etextbooks or most used traditional print textbooks? I was also wondering what some dorm necessities are?? thank you for your help!


Okay, first about textbooks: Don’t buy textbooks before you’re sure you need them! And the best thing to do is to find a friend (or more!) who’s in the same class and share textbooks, that’s the cheapest way. There are pros and cons to both digital and print textbooks. I prefer digital textbooks because I can lug around all my textbooks in my tablet. However, it IS less convenient to read, as you can’t cross reference multiple pages.

As for dorm necessities: Shower caddies, two sets of sheets, mini-fridge, . If you have a roommate, I suggest earplugs or headphones and a sleeping mask. Otherwise, just pack up what you use most at home.

Hope this helps!

Anonymous asked: Can you explain the Masters in Customer Analytics program? How did you enter as a third-year undergrad? How's the workload?


Yeah of course! So the Master of Science in Customer Analytics is one of the newest SMPs (Specialized Masters Programs) in the Olin Business School. The others include MAcc (Master of Accounting) and MSF (Master of Science in Finance). You can read more about them here.

You can apply to be in a SMP as an undergraduate, and if you are an Olin Business School student, you won’t have to take the GED, pay the application fee, or pay extra tuition on top of undergrad (unless you take an extra semester to complete the program, which is likely).

Next semester will be my first semester taking Masters courses, but yes, it’s a heavy workload on top of my two other majors. Although, I am considering dropping my major in Marketing and just pursuing a Computer Science degree for my Bachelor’s.

Hope that helped!

Indie webcomic Abstruse Goose proposes a new ‘Sudoku Comics Challenge’ we can actually get behind: stories with more than one logical beginning and ending. Anyone up for writing a Sudoku haiku?

Anyone else up for the challenge?

unequivocallytrue asked: What are you planning on studying at Wash U? I'd am considering it and would love to ask you some questions!


I’m actually a junior at WashU now and I study marketing and computer science and also pursuing a Masters in Customer Analytics. Ask me anything if you have any specific questions!
