    I really do not understand why people degrade community college. What’s the difference between going to Yale vs going to community college then transferring to a 4 year institute?. I mean let’s be FACTUAL here, you most likely won’t make any more money then someone starting off at a Community college. Not that serious. Also, LESS DEBT. AND u can possibly get a scholarship to transfer into a instate university soo you’ll be going to a university for FREE. I never understood the reason for someone feeling as if they MUST attend a university like Yale, Harvard, ect. Lol. What’s the point? A CRAP LOAD OF DEBT?. People nowadays are making 5x-10x more money not even going to college..being there own boss.. there doing great. So there’s no need for all of the EXPENSIVE colleges.

  • Isn’t psychology supposed to be an easy major?

    I’m an incoming freshman and a psychology major. People lied to me that psychology is an ‘easy major’. I searched up all the professors in the psych department on rate my professor and most of them are quite difficult. I just signed up for classes and even my psych 101 class is hard. Right, such an easy major.

  • I had a low GPA in high school freshman and sophomore year, can I still get into a good university?

    Best answer: I'd make two suggestions to increase your chances of getting into a "better" university: 1. Study this summer and retake the ACT in September. See if you can get a 30+. 2. Work really hard and get the best grades of. your life senior year. With a 3.4 cumulative GPA and a 28 ACT, you can get into... show more
    Best answer: I'd make two suggestions to increase your chances of getting into a "better" university:
    1. Study this summer and retake the ACT in September. See if you can get a 30+.
    2. Work really hard and get the best grades of. your life senior year.

    With a 3.4 cumulative GPA and a 28 ACT, you can get into hundreds of universities (both public and private). You will not make the cut for the top schools. Showing you are continuing to improve your academic performance and that you are scoring with the top 15% of students on the ACT will help.

    Start using websites like Niche to enter your GPA, score, and any criteria you have in terms of the type of school you want to attend (size, location, majors, housing options, costs, etc.). You can put together a list of schools were you are likely to get in with your current grades/score and once that will be a stretch. Niche will show you the GPA and ACT or accepted and rejected students so you can see where you sit.

    I'm going to trade school right now, have multiple certificates in carpentry, plumbing, and electrical, soon to be going to a photovoltaics classes. Trade school is amazing, and trade school is extremely cheap! I already have a job that I am certified for and they are ready to hire me for 20 an hour STARTING and only going up. For some reason when I tell people I go to a trade school they seem confused, wondering why I didn't go to a university? So If trade school is so much faster, cheaper, and (imo) better than a university why does it get such a bad rep? (Btw my job is starting as an apprentice electrician)

The closer one is not quite as good a school, while the other is a little better, but much farther away. My close friend wants me to join him at the closer college, but I know that my chosen department is better at the state school. If it's the same degree at both places, from a career standpoint, does the college itself really matter?

    So I came out of college with only 5 GCSE, including maths and English but all of these are at a C. I never got any science GCSE or other important ones like geography. The only ones I got were English , business studies, performing arts , health and social care and maths. I honestly didn’t care about my grades as I was just a immature teenager who wanted to be cool. I’m 18 now and have finished college , I got into university to study the degree I want but I am thinking about sitting my GCSE for biology , chemistry and physics. Do you think I should or not bother ? The reason I want to is because I don’t want to be the person that only has a few GCSE and I just honestly feel embarrassed about it especially when my siblings all have A* I at least want to get my science GCSE. It’s like even the older I get people carry on talking about like asking me how much GCSE did you get lol it might sound crazy to some but my extended family sat that education is very important. Don’t know how me getting a few more will change anything but it will help me with my confidence.

    Best answer: You betcha! Accountants: tax season! Especially corporate quarterlies & annual. Advertising/PR: new campaigns, unhappy client & complete revamp of whatever. Management: in all kinds of emergencies, you can be called out. Journalists: DEAD-lines! Cross the line & you're dead. Lawyers: preparing for court on a major case, turning around a case going sour, more. Beginning lawyers spend the most all-nighters researching case law, etc. Doctors: most notorious of all for med students on rotations, residents, doctors (not just ob-gyns!).

    Just a very, very few examples in a few occupations/situations. Anybody on the ladder of responsibility (management, execs), anybody on professional promotion tracks, and anybody in high-stress occupations/professions must expect all-nighters.

    My dad has a house in Texas for the past 14 years and he pays school taxes. Right now he lives in NY and a family is only renting it. The mortagage and all the bills comes to our house in NY of all the bills he has to pay for the house in Texas. He has worked over there but decided to come back and has been here for the past 4 years. I have been in NY all my life and attended a community college. Now, I would like to transfer to a College in Texas, but I do not want to pay out of state tuition because it’s really expensive. If I want to transfer over there will I still have to work for a year to become a permanent resident of Texas even though my dad pays taxes, the mortgage and bills of the house that we have over there that is occupied by another family at the moment?
