It turns out that the infallible Office of Undergraduate Admissions has overcredited my transfer units from COD by 15 units! It really angers me that I had brought this up before and they swore they were correct and made me feel like an idiot for bringing it up and wasting thier time. I went and saw a counselor because something still wasn’t sitting right with me and they told me to go over there and raise hell until I got them off. I happily obliged.
Now I am under the unit cap (barely) to get into Computer Science! Woo-Hoo! The only thing I have to do is try to keep my technical GPA over 3.35 - Not an easy feat, but at least I have a good chance of admittance now. I was getting pretty excited about Cognitive Science with a Computer Science Minor and I still have until the end of summer to decide which one I want to do. At least I have 2 paths to choose from now instead of being rejected from everywhere, pushing me towards Cog Sci. Gotta go and hit the books and keep up my technical GPA!


My name is Matt Coneybeare, I design and develop for iOS (iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch), Mac OS X and the Web out of New York. In 2008 I started a software company called Urban Apps that has made some pretty popular apps such as Ambiance and Hourly News. My current Stack Overflow reputation is about 27k.

I was a Rockstar a decade ago, but then went back to school and collected a Bachelor's Degree in Computer Science from U.C. Berkeley. Now I am settled down with my beautiful wife Di and our two doggies Hamachi and Foxy. While coding, I walk several miles/day on my Treadmill Desk. When not at my desk, I love exploring New York City as a Yelp Elite, or training for marathons.
