Hey Roger, thoughts on the new chainsaw man anime that came out? curious on what your thoughts are...

Wed, 27 Jul 2022 03:56:12 GMT

Heyy RoGer! Thank you for the little tumblr avatar thing. Did you like spy x family or is it not your thing? Also mp100 this autumn hell yea!!

Roger: You’re welcome :) I think it was okay, but I liked the manga better.

Hey Roger,
Getting into Google has been my dream for a few years now (unique, I know)
Here is my plan to land a SWE new grad job there:

Blind 75 Leetcode questions
Reading + flashcards of Grokking's System Design course
Once I finish the Blind 75 I'll do some more DP questions and learn some of the patterns as I've heard Google loves asking those

Any other tips? I'm spending this Summer preparing and will start applying in late August. (I am a senior in University rn)

Roger: Good luck! I haven’t answered any interview questions in years, so I’m probably not the right person to ask haha. In any case, I never did any specific preparation for inteviews since I thought it was a waste of time. I liked just working on programming projects instead.

Hi Roger,
Just wanted to say that your website has been a comfortable constant throughout my entire academic career. I know I can always count on your tools to help me figure out my grades when finals roll around. Hope life is treating you well. :)

Roger: Thanks, and glad to help!

Mon, 11 Apr 2022 03:33:22 GMT

hi Roger, just wanted to say thanks. You are a godsend brudda. I'm in my last semester of second year Uni, been using this since I was in grade 11 and 12.

Good luck to all the students out there, you can do it!! I have two exams in a row, we can get through this hopefully. T_T

Roger: Glad to help!

My final is worth 30% of my grade and I have a 98. Everyone says it's really hard. Now that I used your calc I realized I only need to get 71 so I am happy!!

Thu, 23 Dec 2021 04:25:56 GMT

also, college advice?

Roger: People go to college for all sorts of reasons, but if you’re looking specifically to jump start your career, I feel like students really need to be proactive and take ownership of their own education (nobody in college will do this automatically for you), and lots of people don’t realize this soon enough.

Thu, 23 Dec 2021 04:23:42 GMT

Just Curious, What are you up to roger? How is life and what are your plans for the future?

Roger: Work. Decent, and more work I suppose.

FROM THE TOP OF MY HEART, THANK U. will you even see this? idk prolly not but since the 7th grade ive been sincerely praying both sides of your pillow are cold.

One day when I'm rich and famous after I dramatically drop out of my biochem degree and pursue my true passion as a model/singer songwriter and win a Grammy next to Olivia Rodrigo (because we will have created an album together of course),

I will be thanking you by name.

Roger: Haha. I read every comment (even if it takes me a while to reply). Glad I could help!

Hey man, you're seriously such an epic chad that it's simply astounding to me. I really appreciate your service to every single person who doesn't know the simple equation of calculating your theoretical grades (including me, obviously). I'm not taking super super hard classes and I've always struggled with academics (my theory that it's because I'm only half Asian [although the other half is Jewish, which I've heard means I'm supposed to have good accounting skills?]) and in the last couple years I've been working as hard as I can to get my GPA up and have been taking hard classes and you've been the real one with your fancy JavaScript calculator (at least that's what I assume it is, I only know html and css) because it's told me everything that I need to know and given me concrete ways to achieve my goals (a weighted 4.0 which is really difficult when you had an average weighted 3.1 freshmen year before you got serious).

long story short, I really appreciate you and think that it's super funny that you have your AniList out there (based take: I think that jujutzu kaisen it honestly not that great, even though the actual animation is amazing)

shorter story short: keep it up bro :)

p.s. sorry that I have such a wack train of thought

Roger: Haha thanks! You’re right that the calculator is written in JavaScript. I stopped watching Jujutsu Kaisen after only about 12 episodes... I’m not usually a big fan of shounen shows, so it took perserverence for me to even get that far. I’m glad I was able to help you with your GPA goals!

Do you find that that your website and writing blog posts is a good source of income? I am thinking about starting but I am aware of the high website visits needed to make any money at all.

Roger: There are plenty of ways to monitize your creativity online that are better than blogging, especially since the last few years. I made my website only because I wanted a blog and to learn about running websites, which I think was the right choice.

Tue, 11 May 2021 01:21:49 GMT

You inspire me, Roger.

Roger: Thanks!

Sat, 08 May 2021 19:06:11 GMT

I literally spam this site semiannually when I have my exams! Thanks! Roger! For saving my grades!

Everyone in the comments is acting like Roger is their personal college advisor, lol.

hi roger
Sat, 01 May 2021 23:36:36 GMT

just a question, is it weird replying to comments like 10 years later? also how would you recommend getting into coding and learning computers

Roger: Yep. I suggest new learners make something with immediate practical usefulness, like a Chrome Extension or some automation scripts. It’s a lot more motivating to get something useful from your efforts.

Roger: It depends on how many points you have so far.

I love roger

I discovered this site in I was a senior in HS (Class of '14) and still use it to this day. Thanks Roger!

Roger: You’re welcome!

You are a hero of a generation you have been saving me (and making me sob when I see the "you need a 120% to make a 89.6. Maybe there is extra credit :/" message) so thank you so much <3333333

hi roger! just wanted to let you know I've been a fan since... maybe my freshman year of high school? I'm now a freshman at Berkeley studying EECS! i love reading your blog and keeping up with your anilist :) i hope you a happy and healthy new year!!!

Roger: Seems like an awful time to be in college right now, but good luck and happy new year!

Thu, 14 Jan 2021 22:04:02 GMT

PLEASE HeLp I am very confident usually but my gpa and sat and everything is garbage i dont know if i will make it into a prestigious or even half decent college and then my asian parents will be disappointed. I will have a 3.8 weighted GPA after the end of the year and a 3.57 unweighted. I will take a total of 5 AP courses (including seniors year) and 4 honors courses. My SAT atm is 1360 but I am taking 3 more (i was going to take more but one got cancelled over winter because COVID i hate myself) and hope to get it up to at least a 1420-1450. Also, I took SAT Math 1 and got a 700, and will take Math 1 again as well as Math 2 (people are saying i should just take math 2 and not math 1 is that right?). The issue is i have 2 C's and a D on my transcript (I got pneumonia over second semester sophomore year and missed over a month and now i hate myself my grades are terrible) and my grades were only average at best to begin with. For clubs I am captain of chess team, skillsusa state team, honors business society member (do honors society even help?) and apart of marching band. I don't have 40 hours of volunteering yet but i should be able to get it. Also, I may (not very likely but i have an opportunity) to get an internship. Will I be able to make it into Purdue or UIUC or San Diego University or University of Wisconsin or University of Minnesota Twin Cities or University of Michigan or Boston university or Berkeley or Carnegie or am i just a burden to society and my parents

Roger: Sorry to hear you’re having a rough time. I don’t know the answer to most of your questions, but I think most people are a burden on their parents!

Thu, 14 Jan 2021 05:53:05 GMT

What was your favorite class at Cal?

Roger: It’s probably CS 162: Introduction to Operating Systems. A close second would be CS194-30: Practical Networking (which might have been only a one-time offering).

Oops, I submitted my message before I was done typing lol...

Anyways, what I was saying was I've been using your website since I was a freshman in high school, and I'm actually using the Final Grade Calculator to find out what I'll likely need for my Data 8 final (as in the intro Data Science class at UC Berkeley)! I stumbled on your blog and realized you were a TA for CS61C at Cal! It's always so amazing seeing a fellow Bear doing cool stuff in the world - keep it up!

Roger, I have a 88% in history and a question worth 4 points is not graded yet, if I get the full 4 points will it bring my grade to a 90?

Roger: Is your “question” already included in your current overall grade? How many points do you have total?

Wed, 27 May 2020 22:49:25 GMT

Hey man, great website! But just wanna bring up few things about taxes.

My father worked his whole life and won the lottery. As he now demands the money, the government says he needs to pay taxes on his own winning.

Hey, if you want to get money, just buy your own lottery ticket right?

Roger: The government should just pay its own taxes.

Hey Roger! I got a 7 out of 15 on a test. The test is worth 15 points and I had 100. What grade do I have now?

Roger: Well, if you had 100 points, and you got 7 more, then all I can say is that you now have 107 points. Or did you mean to say that your current overall grade is 100%? In that case, the answer depends on how many points you have total.

Fri, 31 Jan 2020 17:25:13 GMT

do UCs look at senior courses and marks??

Roger: Applications are due before your senior grades are available, but I think the application does ask you about which courses you’re planning to take during your senior year.

I luv roger
Fri, 31 Jan 2020 04:57:07 GMT

if i’m applying to UCs from another state where the gpa scale might be different, do they calculate my gpa based on their scale or my states? also what’s the california high school gpa scale

for ex. 80-89 = 3.7 90-100 = 4.0 etc ????

Roger: The UC’s expect your transcript to have letter grades. I’m not sure what they’d do if your transcript is formatted differently.
