One of the great lesson I learned at the start of graduate school was by failing a class – EE6349.
I enrolled confidently in this mandatory class, thinking to myself. I am going to crush it while I can manage course work and full time research at the same time.
The end result I did fail the course.
I Failed it !!!
What the hell ? Who fails a mandatory course in graduate school ? Especially for one when you are an international student, and two you need to maintain a certain GPA in order to continue your funding.
I did repeat the class, paid for it out of my own pocket and moved on with life. In the meantime I learned two lessons.
Months later, a big giant ICT company announced an essay competition on campus about applications of wireless communication in data centers for a big prize money of $10,000. All I knew was to give it a shot , use what I learned and apply the concept in a data center environment.
What’s the worst that can happen ??
The mere effort of taking action and doing so, proved more than profitable for me. Not only I got $10,000 for the essay but in return got an offer of employment from the company as well. Way more good deal than I ever expected. Isn’t it 🙂
In that instant, did I ever think , ” Oh I don’t know about Stochastic processes. What will I do.” ???
Not at all
