  • My son, who has a 4.6, just committed to the University of Michigan. Should I be proud or disappointed?

    So my son who has a 4.6 GPA decided to go to the University of Michigan. In case you are wondering, he was also accepted into Harvard, Stanford, and Duke but for some odd reason chose to go to the University of Michigan. He plans on going into Aerospace Engineering.

    So my son who has a 4.6 GPA decided to go to the University of Michigan. In case you are wondering, he was also accepted into Harvard, Stanford, and Duke but for some odd reason chose to go to the University of Michigan. He plans on going into Aerospace Engineering. I want to be happy for my son but on the other hand, I am a little disappointed he would choose a public university over three elite private schools, one being in the Ivy League.

  • Why don't more people complete double majors or dual degrees?

    Best answer: Many people cannot manage the pressure or stress, physical AND emotional / mental stress) of double major or dual degree program is why. Only 35% of the general public have SOME college education but that is now OUTDATED because that information is based on 2015 government data.. The only reason my closest friend got two bachelor's degrees and not one from Tulane was there was no B.S degree program with a major in music piano performance or music history offered by Tulane University Sophie H. Newcomb memorial college , and she CHOSE to do B.S in physical degree program 1971 to 1975. There were NOT dual degree programs offered. Tulane's medical school no longers offers the dual M.D. Ph.d double doctorate degree program that my friend was admitted to. My firend did another bachelors degree at another university at ALMOST the same time., si she triple majored.. her son was admitted into an accelerated bachelor's d and master's degree program at Stanford in 2005. He did NOT double major TECHNICALLY but he kind of did double major. His Ph.D. is in physics and it is from Berkeley , not Stanford..He got TWO master's degrees, but i am not sure if they are both from Stanford. physics AND aeronautical engineering.. Both my friend and her sons are exceptions. Despite all her protests, she and both of her sons and very likely her husband all have high IQs. My friend had scholarships AND she worked to put herself through college and medical school and she still has 2 jobs Even though she is full time faculty member of health sciences technical university..She Was going to college until recently too , to get another master's degree., she's been doing THAT FOR YEARS..

    Lots of people change their majors multiple times. I've known people who have changed their majors five times, but it usually means staying is school longer than the usual 4 years, and many bachelor's degrees now take longer than 4 years to get because many people are working 2 or even 3 part time jobs or full time job and 1 or 2 part time jobs AND raising children all at the same time. Having a baby is HUGE distraction, because taking care of and raising the child becomes higher priority than your own education..
    Many people simply CANNOT mage the stress of a double major are a dual degree program.

    Liberal arts majors usually don NOT have that much trouble finding a job. the people who get Business degrees are the one's who can't find jobs because the market is flooded with B.B.As and M.B.A/ it's shocking how many people are totally delusional about liberal arts majors being useless, because liberal arts majors INCLUDE SCIENCE AND MATH MAJORS. Some people need a reality check.BEFORE the Real world slaps them in the face. and they find themselves out on the street..

    What may be easy for you, MIGHT be extremely challenging, both physically AND mentally for someone else.. I been a type 1 diabetic since i was 2 years old. i have no clear memories of ever N OT being diabetic. Yes, i am physically handicapped, but i am NOT mentally handicapped., for a very long time. half my life, I was in denial that was phys am physically handicapped.. yes, I DO DOUBT my sanity, frequently,. for the last 50 YEARS and counting. My mother really did have me tested when i was 14 years old. no 14 year old is entirely sane..

  • How can a parent just not care if their kid has a D in a class?

    Best answer: Maybe the parents do not care because they are not financially paying for the college education. Also the kid may not be trying and it is their life. If they choose not to study and do well, then that is their own personal issue that has nothing to do with the parents. However, I feel like parents should care and... show more

If they choose not to study and do well, then that is their own personal issue that has nothing to do with the parents. However, I feel like parents should care and value education. But ultimately when you go to college you are responsible for yourself and your actions affect your future.

Now add to that them saying they attended a PRIVATE university in NYC that is obviously expensive....I think that alone gives a very good "whoa" kind of impression don't you think? I believe that it does matter to a degree (no pun) where you attend, based on location as well as if its public/private....maybe job companies will try to not be biased but theres def something to where you went, some places sounds way better than others

    I'm a second year college student and things have been really going downhill. I've been a top A student for most of my life but I'm beginning to worry. My first year of college, I had good grades, not as high as high school but definitely good. This semester I don't know what has happened but I have zero motivation to study. I go to lectures and zone out the entire class. I can't sit down and study for more that 5 minites without getting bored and distracted. I used to be great at studying but I honestly can't anymore. I feel burnt out. I get on average 4 hours of sleep a night, I'm always anxious, sad, and tired. These are all due to college. How can I get back into the game and be motivated?

  • Will Gym count in my GPA?

    Will colleges recalculate my GPA so it excludes P.E.? I keep seeing some saying that colleges will look and some say they will ignore it completely because it isn't a core.

    I'm in organic chemistry at community college. The professor is insanely difficult. We have 11 people in the class and at least 7 of them are failing. In his class a 66 percent or higher is a C. Exams are 40 percent of our grade. Homework is 10 percent and labs and final are 25 percent each. I'm getting B's on the homework and laba but I'm failing the quizzes and tests. I have a 69 in the class now. But I'm scared. We have two exams left and we took two exams I study so hard. I read the chapter after lecture to better understand the material and now I even started to do practice problems. The thing is, on the test and quiz, the problems are 100 times more difficult. Also, he sometimes takes one litrle concept and makes it into a 10 point problem. What is a good study plan? I cannot fail this class. My whole future would be ruined. I'm set on transferring to a UC and I can't drop or fail or else my acceptance would suffer
