About this deal

It’ll tell the admissions officer about all the grades you have acquired over the years, and contextualise them with the school you went to and the area you grew up in. But I am a fan of Jack's and was interested in his book, and it actually was a really nice trip down memory lane to my own year at an English university. Vanderbei is a professor at Princeton whose books include Sizing Up the Universe: The Cosmos in Perspective (with J.

Welcome to the Universe in 3D, the ideal gift for star gazers of all ages, brings readers a built-in stereo viewer.

But really it is not a book for everyone (as a whole); it has some pages for one and some for another. It’s so crucial that you get this right and opt for something that you’re genuinely passionate about, because you’ve got to live, breathe and sleep it (or, indeed, get-no-sleep-and-pull-an-all-nighter it) for three, four or even more years.

Of course, the first thing you should think about when applying to go to university is *drum roll please* the course you’ll be studying!

I won't lie - a few tears were shed when I was reading the dealing with rejection section and the imposter syndrome section, as a lot of that stuff hits very close to home. I cannot wait to apply everything I learned and experience everything that was described (hey Fresher's Week!This survival will work for you, only if you are European, okay some tips can help any student at all especially when he said about doing things you will thank your future self later, but a lot of things work better with you have pounds in your pocket instead of real, or if you live in the university campus not in Guarulhos lol.

I just finished Jack´s book and I can guarantee three things; 1) I am still struggling to say the book title without misspelling some words. I don't entirely blame Jack for this though, I think that fewer similes would've been fine because that's Jack's style of jokes, but the excess really needed to be cut out and that was his editor's job. It was so informative and honest and had amazing tips and tricks on adulting stuff that you wouldn't even realise would be an issue to handle like reading meters and stuff. Welcome to the Universe in 3D takes you on a grand tour of the observable universe, guiding you through the most spectacular sights in the cosmos—in breathtaking 3D.
