Spring break is over, and the spring quarter is about to start (April 3rd). Though I have a full-time job, I also take courses at Stanford as an SCPD( Stanford Center for Professional Development).I really enjoy school and classes, and I missed being a student after being out of school for a year. I had my first course as an SCPD student last quarter, and I’m continuing this SCPD journey this quarter.
I’m aiming to take get a Biomedical Informatics: Data, Modeling, and Analysis Graduate Certificate, and then maybe applying as a Master’s or Ph.D. student. Not too sure yet, but some rough plans to move forward as of now.
Anyways, this quarter, I’m not really following the Biomedical Informatics curriculum. Instead, I’m taking CS231N – Convolutional Neural Networks for Visual Recognition. I do some of this stuff at work, but I want to learn more. And sure, learning as your applying is the best method, but I believe this would be a good, solid foundation to continue to build off of.
Also, the fun thing about this course is that one of my friends is going to be taking it with me! We’re going to be partners and work on the final project together, so yay I’m glad I’m not alone in the course.
Did you miss school when you graduated or were you done with it and ready for the next thing?
