Got my first internship at FAANG but bombed my midterm
By - sugoikoi
jokes on you I failed both my midterm and my interview
Lol here’s my award bro
Jokes on you, I don't even get calls and yet I keep bombing midterms (:
You’ll make more at your internship than any tuition reduction
this needs more upvotes
I concur. I was making $32/hr at my last internship.
Who hasn't bombed a midterm in college? It's one test you'll be fine
Thank you! I'll move on.
that's a sacrifice most (if not all) people on this sub would be willing to make mate
came to say the same, sick of these posts
Bruh how? It's good dialogue especially for this sub. It's cool to hear about what internships people are getting and how they're handling other things in their life.
Humblebrags have no place in this subreddit and should be banned on sight
Humblebrags are like 50% of the sub lmao
Good ban them all 🖕😹🖕
What if I told you that these interview processes are so draining that they make us stop literally every other aspect of our life, and that it feels good to vent to a sub that, you would assume, would have had maybe a similar experience to you and would make you feel less alone?
But noo, everything is about bragging apparently lol
How is bragging equal to venting
literally the same for me, I got my first offer \[Amazon\] but I'm behind in 3/5 classes :(
Congrats on your first offer! and don't worry, I'm sure we'll get back in those classes.
~~Same thing happened to me, luckily profs are understanding if you speak to them about what's going on, mine understood it was an important opportunity for my future career, which is why we're in university in the first place. I don't have to keep all As like you do, but you might as well try to speak to financial aid or whoever is in charge of determining if you get tuition reduction and explain to them the situation too.~~
~~If ever your prof doesn't give a shit (very much a possibility), or you have to borrow some money, just know you did the right thing for your career, and it'll be worth it in the long term.~~
~~Try to take a moment to rest as you're probably exhausted.~~
~~And don't be surprised 99% of this sub doesn't give you empathy. They would be just as drained if they got such an opportunity and tried to prepare for it as much as we did.~~
Wait, is this a shitpost, lol? Thanks for wasting my time.
Thank you for sharing this. I'll probably look for other financial aids if I cannot get the reduction in the end.
I got a faang offer and passed my midterm and get tuition reduction for being too sexy.
Get on my level
Even if you failed the class it’s worth it
Whenever y’all post things like this, I’d like y’all to be reminded of this video: https://youtu.be/YJZCUhxNCv8. Man graduated with a 2.3, literally skipped his midterms to do interview prep, and has now worked at every FAAN(M)G company. You will be fine.
Happened to me last year, had to pass fail a class. Absolutely worth it imo.
I don't know what country you're in, but surely the money you'll be making at Facebook may balance out the future tuiton costs in the worst case scenario? If you do well in your Facebook internship you could potentially have a long term future with them. If not, you will be a former facebook employee and more companies would be willing to hire you.
The reason you're stressing out/unhappy about bombing your midterm is the same reason that you got the internship. Maybe try to be more understanding of others' feelings in the future, but I think you're cool! Good luck!
Thank you, I will 🙏
Around 230, including top 100 FB tagged problems.
Can you please share your stra
tegy to prepare . I am also preparing for faang
If you already have your interview scheduled, I would recommend you to focus on the tagged problems; if you don't have interview to prepare atm, probably go over Blind 75 first to have general understanding of data structures and algorithms.
Made the same sacrifice last year, my grades worse than normal because of interview prep, but at least I managed to get a FAANG internship and a return offer so it's 1000% worth it.
Don't think too much about it and ease back into your normal study routine. As someone mentioned earlier, you will earn back your tuition deduction, especially if u get a return offer.
Who cares, your at FANG!! Just drop the course
Everyone always talks about LC. Does no one use Hackerrank? Why is that
Theres also codeforces which isn’t being talked about lol
I feel really bad
I’m an international student too, how are you getting tuition reductions? Is that a thing your school does specifically?
Yeah, my school provides that opportunity for students with good grades.
How’d you bomb the interview if you did all that leetcoding?
Hmm the course is OS, it's kinda hard for me :(
Where do you study?
how old are you? what year of college? coz I'm in my final year and i wanna know if I'm behind the curve
First year graduate student
Are you a junior?
Is it FBU?
Umm you’re upset bc you didn’t get an A? Okaaayyy
