Subject: RE: Non-Music - Academic Success Question
Bart - well said. My undergrad degree provided me with a theoretical basis and a little bit of practical experience for a job in archaeology, but it took a couple of years out working in the (literal) field before I knew what I was doing. Likewise, my computer knowledge from my MSc wasn't quite as handy as it could have been when I got my first programming job. There's a definite difference in types of knowledge. I want a nice balance of both.
