Comment Would prefer this over a hybrid (Score 5, Insightful) 721

Don't forget that, when considering the extra mining and transportation of rare earth metals required to build a hybrid car, its overall environmental impact might not be any better than a conventional gasoline engine. My choice would be to buy a gasoline powered car with 50% improved efficiency over hybrid--at least until battery technology (and China's environmental policies!) improve.

Comment Studying Abroad in England (Score 1) 386

I majored in computer science and studied abroad at the University of Nottingham in England for one semester. My school (University of St Thomas) did not have a study abroad programs of their own for comp sci but they matched me up with an Arcadia University program that would handle all the credit transfers for me. I was happy with the result--I made good progress toward graduating and had a great time abroad. Arcadia even had me attend a cultural orientation in London and stay with a family for a weekend in Southport which added to the experience. Definitely talk to your study abroad office, they're there to help you. I know Butler University offers a program very similar to Arcadia's. I met students over there participating in both.
