Year at UW: Fourth

About me: My name is David and I am a senior in Materials Science and Engineering here at UW. I am planning on working in industry after I graduate, with the eventual goal of possibly going to grad school to get a PhD. I had a tough time with college admissions and choosing my major, so I thought I should try an help out new students going through the same thing. Even as a senior, I am still learning what to do as I go along, and advice from people further down the path can make a big difference. Email me if you have questions or just want general advice - even if I can't help, I can probably point you in a good direction. David Scales
