Got my first internship at FAANG but bombed my midterm

sugoikoi

strawberryhichew

Okay me


CodyWoodard89

Lol here’s my award bro


Bits_Please101

Jokes on you, I don't even get calls and yet I keep bombing midterms (:


I-AM-NOT-THAT-DUCK

You’ll make more at your internship than any tuition reduction


genevievesprings

this needs more upvotes


Historical-Spite5846

I concur. I was making $32/hr at my last internship.


dsli

Who hasn't bombed a midterm in college? It's one test you'll be fine


hungg8g8

Thank you! I'll move on.


MWilbon9

Cool


neonbluerain

that's a sacrifice most (if not all) people on this sub would be willing to make mate


Annonymooooose

Odd flex?


TheFishToldMeSo

came to say the same, sick of these posts


beghuul_csmajor

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


Saltyknicksfan

Humblebrags are like 50% of the sub lmao


joseph_odesho1234567

Good ban them all 🖕😹🖕


MackleTooMuch

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


joseph_odesho1234567

How is bragging equal to venting


Khizzyjr

literally the same for me, I got my first offer \[Amazon\] but I'm behind in 3/5 classes :(


hungg8g8

Congrats on your first offer! and don't worry, I'm sure we'll get back in those classes.


MackleTooMuch

~~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.


hungg8g8

Thank you for sharing this. I'll probably look for other financial aids if I cannot get the reduction in the end.


randomtrip10

I got a faang offer and passed my midterm and get tuition reduction for being too sexy. Get on my level


KruppJ

Worth it


throwawayzusu

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.


BirdSilverSquirrel

Happened to me last year, had to pass fail a class. Absolutely worth it imo.


caitriona-ecuador

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!


hungg8g8

Thank you, I will 🙏

Around 230, including top 100 FB tagged problems.


urdad_455

Can you please share your stra tegy to prepare . I am also preparing for faang


hungg8g8

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.


Agent007_MI9

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.


UnderstandingBusy758

Who cares, your at FANG!! Just drop the course


imagineer_17

Everyone always talks about LC. Does no one use Hackerrank? Why is that


jbar98

wedgie_this_nerd

CUTON1C

I’m an international student too, how are you getting tuition reductions? Is that a thing your school does specifically?


hungg8g8

Yeah, my school provides that opportunity for students with good grades.


CUTON1C

How’d you bomb the interview if you did all that leetcoding?


hungg8g8

Hmm the course is OS, it's kinda hard for me :(


Terrific-Purchase
