    Yes I do. It's just that I am taking an online class and the emphasis isn't on optimization. I can only go by the Irvine library and I'm not going to delve into the documentation to find out the specific logic implementation of the code. This is my first assembly class. I will have many more as an EE student. I understand bit masking but haven't really dealt with homework assignments that actually use it.

    thanks for the explanation though. I understand completely why you are telling me the approach you gave me the first time. I'm not a fan of this book. But I will learn NASM next year in more depth for a better technical understanding :)

    LOL. I meant prestige wise. They are the top schools in the state for anything.

    I'm from Florida so I know how it goes.... (go SEC!)

    George Mason is known throughout the east coast. More so than say Old Dominion. GMU is not the end of the world.

    I did this instead that will handle constant integers

    
        SetColor PROC forecolor:BYTE, backcolor:BYTE
    	
    	movzx eax, backcolor 
    	shl eax, 4 
    	movzx ebx, forecolor
    	add eax, ebx
    	call SetTextColor
    	
    	ret
        SetColor ENDP
    
    
    


    This way I can just validate user input with integers 0-F :)

    First send in a letter of continued interest (a LOCI). This shows the admissions committee that you are committed to attending UVA. It might be too late but consider other schools as well. Virginia Tech is just as good and well known. For computer science it wont matter that much. Just get in to school and graduate. There are no guarantees when it comes to college applications. Always apply to back up schools in case you don't get in.

    If you want to wait a year, then you can still go to George Mason and transfer to UVA from there. Most schools let you transfer if you can finish the last 15 credits or so in the major at the school. You will have to check the college catalog for the school you want to go to though.

    Call up UVA and ask a counselor why your stats didn't get you admitted. If your stats are too low dont sweat it, attend another school, and pick your grades up. You can always go to a better grad school later for your masters. If you just sit out a year, that's opportunity cost of lost salary from not graduating sooner.

    Interesting.

    The book just gives the formula as frontcolor + (backcolor x 16). Now I see what it actually means.
