@Jaysi Yea Maple was my first choice since it has the Ag learning community. I won't be turning down internships to other companies by any means, I've just worked for Pioneer awhile now and already have a foot in the door, so it's likely I'll have a job with them. Pioneer is a pretty good employer as well. Also am a part of the Honors program which opens up research opportunities with professors, and the Agronomy department has opportunities for work within the building on research as well.
@accountzzzwhateverurnameis I don't think I'm ever really coming back to aos, I've got LoL and Overwatch to play instead, both of which I have absolutely no problems with running on my computer. AoS nevers fails to go down to 10-15 fps by 20 minutes and 0 fps constantly after 35, and I don't really want to play that when I could play more polished games with no lag.
@Adam Well, I've always loved science, and genetics specifically, and being a plant breeder pays well, is in good demand here in Iowa, and involves what I'm interested in. It also helps that I have a ton of scholarship money waiting at ISU which happens to have one of the best agronomy programs in the country if my memory serves me right. Also, if I succeed at my job, it helps millions of people who use any part of the plants I breed for any purpose. I could help solve world hunger (though that is a longshot).
@Yaldi I agree. Hopefully I help the world along that path.
@Residente Thanks :)
@hbogyt Good for you, I'm on track to get through college debt-free as well, though through different methods. Hopefully I'll be able to start saving money for retirement as well during college.
