  • What do I do after high school?

    Best answer: Don't go to music school. I was a music major and most of my classmates were not able to get any kind of paying job in music. They work in other non music jobs and fields and many have trouble paying back their loans. I was able to get a music teaching job that is low paying (I am below the poverty line) and... show more
    Best answer: Don't go to music school. I was a music major and most of my classmates were not able to get any kind of paying job in music. They work in other non music jobs and fields and many have trouble paying back their loans. I was able to get a music teaching job that is low paying (I am below the poverty line) and I had played my instrument since I was a small child. If you are into music, what I suggest is get into a job that pays well and leaves you free on evenings and weekends for music. You don't neccesarily need college for a good paying job, many good paying jobs can be learned at a vocational school, or in the trades, apprenticeship, etc.

  • Are fake college degrees worth it? Should I get one? What's the worst that can happen?

    My friend bought a fake college degree online, and I didn't take him seriously at first. But then he said it actually worked at a job, and I didnt believe him. But then he showed me his check of $3000 in 2 weeks, and I got kinda jelly. He's had this job for like 6 months now, and they still haven't... show more
    My friend bought a fake college degree online, and I didn't take him seriously at first. But then he said it actually worked at a job, and I didnt believe him. But then he showed me his check of $3000 in 2 weeks, and I got kinda jelly. He's had this job for like 6 months now, and they still haven't found it. I don't snitch cuz snitches get stitches, and he's also my friend and a good man that also helped me through many my hard times. But just wondering, what's the worst that can happen if caught with a fake degree? Just fired? If so, That's not a big deal cuz my friend already made a crap-ton of money. If anything, this just shows college is a low-key scam cuz he does the job just fine and even better than some of his co-workers, and he has no college expererience. I mean think about it, 4 years of learning and spending much money on college seems like overdoing it, and just seems like an excuse for college to just suck more money out of you. Learning a regular job with just a little prior info about it and learning on the fly is not that hard. I still work as a janitor, and can't afford school and barely rent. I'm thinking of getting a fake degree and applying for higher jobs. I having nothing to lose. Worst thing that can happen is that they find out it's fake and I get rejected or fired(if already hired). So what? I can just go back to my janitor job. If I lose that job too, I can just commit suicide. No biggie. BTW, I'm 22.

  • Do you think this is fair of my professor?

    Best answer: He's contractually obligated and paid for that time. No, it isn't fair. If everyone else wants that..fine, but he is obligated to be there for you to the end.

    He should tutor you one on one for the remainder of the time.

  • Is getting a Bachelor's in Philosophy worth it in terms of a career?

    ok so some people say college is only worth it if you're a STEM major, i'm not a STEM major. So i chose Philosophy as something I wanted to study because its something i'm interested in. But how would it help me in terms of a career? It's not very practical?

  • Is it normal to do bad the first semester of college?

    I'm doing crappy in college, but I just don't care. I'm missing deadlines, and I know I should care, but for some reason, I just don't. Is this normal?

  • How to write to professors saying I need to miss class due to work?

    Best answer: This is a matter which should NOT be handled in writing. It calls for a personal visit and a face-to-face conversation with each instructor involved. But before you take that step, look at the situation and go in prepared to handle it intelligently. Look at the course syllabus for each class you will be missing... show more
    Best answer: This is a matter which should NOT be handled in writing. It calls for a personal visit and a face-to-face conversation with each instructor involved. But before you take that step, look at the situation and go in prepared to handle it intelligently. Look at the course syllabus for each class you will be missing and check any "absences" policies. Know exactly how long you will need to miss class, how many classes you will be missing, and how you will cover getting notes and information while you are "out." Do you have another student in the class who will take notes for you, pass along any assignments, and be responsible for keeping you informed about due dates and deadlines? Finally, be prepared to say out loud, "If you will allow me to miss (X number) of classes, I accept full responsibility for meeting all course requirements, and all work will be submitted on time. There will be no requests for deadline extensions or permission to take tests later than they are scheduled." (If you want to be really classy, put it in writing, in the form of a contract, with your name and the professor's name, along with the official class title and number.) Professors aren't required to allow anything other than what's specified in the college catalog, the class schedule, and the course syllabus, but a professional, sincere approach to the request will help make a positive response more likely.

  • Was it rude to tell my child that if she doesn't do well in school then she will be working at McDonald's for the rest of her life?

    Best answer: No it's not rude. She needs to learn that in the real world she needs to be competitive and work hard to get what she wants. Getting poor grades in school will not help her. Explain that if she continues to screw around the only school she will be able to get into is BFU (Burger Flipper University)

    I was planning to get a laptop for college but now I'm second guessing it. I'm going to attend community college this fall then I plan to transfer in two years, I know I'll need it then but should I spend my money and get one now? Would you even use it in community college??

  • How much do you pay in school loans and what was your starting salary?

    Best answer: Government grants, other grants and university tuition waivers covered everything (including books) so I finished my degree without debt.

    With an Associates Degree I started out at $17K in 1980.
    With a BS (about 12 years later) I started out with a government classification of GS9.
