Welcome aboard! I feel the same way about PS.org, there are alot of great people here and very eager to help. Dont be afraid to ask dumb questions because we all know you have been brain washed in the past but now you have done your homework the right way and have a 7.3 GPA and we will help you along. Congrats and post a picture of the new toy!! LOL
