Lmao, it was autocorrect not me. Although I'm sure he's used to it.
A week at the airport was recommended to me by a friend - I've been meaning to watch the film "The Terminal" which is similar. I went to see a talk between Alain de Botton and Derren Brown in London a few months ago - some very interesting ideas came up between them regarding philosophy and psychology!
Hey, thanks for that bit of information. Very useful.
Would you say that Keele is majorly PBL or is it really 50 50 the teaching ? I mean, half PBL and half lectures ? Or mostly PBL and few occasional lectures ?
I've got my interview in two days, feel so nervous. Any tips for the interview ?
And how's your time at Keele going ? Enjoying the course ? Is it really that "energy and mind consuming" the course as people make it out to be ? Do you get any spare time to chill and relax regularly ?
And hey, thanks for your help once again. Much appreciated.
Basically, because of my grades, I was restricted where to apply, and Keele was one of the only four that accepted my grades. I had heard good and bad things about PBL, so decided to apply to Keele in order to give myself an opportunity to study Medicine somewhere.
And, I asked you and the other person similar questions in order to get different people's views on my queries.
Thanks for whatever information you noted in your last message. It was kind of helpful.
I see you're studying Medicine at Keele. ( I hope I'm right about that. )
I've just got an interview to study Med at Keele.
Could you please enlighten me about PBL at Keele ? I'm really worried that PBL is not for me. I'm more of a lecture sort of person, so that's why I just need your help to inform me on what you have thought about the PBL at Keele ? Is it really the "teach yourself" thing everyone associates with PBL ?
Also, is Keele completely PBL or is there lectures as well ?

We are going to die, and that makes us the lucky ones. Most people are never going to die because they're never going to be born. The potential people who could've been here in my place, but who will in fact never see the light of day, outnumber the sand grains of Sahara. Certainly those unborn ghosts include greater poets than Keats, scientists greater than Newton. We know this because the set of possible people allowed by our DNA so massively outnumbers the set of actual people. In the teeth of these stupefying odds it is you and I, in our ordinariness, that are here. We privileged few who won the lottery of birth against all odds. How dare we whine at our inevitable return to that prior state from which the vast majority have never stirred?

We have arranged a global civilisation in which most crucial elements - transportation, communications, agriculture, medicine, education, entertainment and protecting the environment - profoundly depend on science and technology. We have also arranged things so that almost noone understands science and technology. This is a prescription for disaster.
