  • 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.

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 do people look down on those that don't go to college?

    Best answer: That's a big generalization you are making. Unfortunately in the USA bachelors degree is now what a high school diploma used to be. These people who say what you are stating are either uninformed or harsh. Many of my colleagues have no college degrees but they are smarter than 99% of the people I have to deal with. show more

  • What kind of colleges could I get into?

    Best answer: Apparently, the average SAT is a 1310 ... which you're not too far off from at all. You can raise your score and have a higher chance of getting in, and help boost your "low" GPA a little. Other than that, I think you'll be fine -- just try your best to keep your GPA up and prove that you're a... show more

    I m currently about halfway though an engineering degree and I hate it. I thought I could suck it up for the sake of financial security, and I m doing quite well academically, but English is where my heart is and the thought of pursuing a career in engineering makes me miserable. I m going to finish the engineering degree as a fallback, but should I go for grad school in English in the hopes of having a career in that field instead? Do I have any shot of getting into English grad school with an engineering undergrad degree? Is my happiness worth 1-2 years of graduate tuition? I know that s a massive question, but any opinions are appreciated.

    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 Only 35% of the general public have SOME college education but that is now OUTDATED because that information is based on 2015 government data..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..

    Alright I’m currently a senior this year and I was really considering to major in biology but I been hearing a lot of rumors that if you major in biology you can get a job as a physician assistant. But I wanna be correct before I tend to ask anything about this specific field. Alright my plans are I’m going to be attending my local community college first to get my basics done first then transfer myself to a university to get my bachelors degree in biology. I wanted to major in a specific career that involves biology for I can save up for medical school and apply for it in the near future. I read the requirements in order to be accepted into a physician assistant program that you need a specific type of clinical experience in order to go into that field and minimum hours too. In the meantime I need a short career for I can be able to pay for medical school in the future if I do tend to major in biology. How can I make this work? I’m planning everything out already. So please leave some great advice. Thank you so much!!

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

    By support I mean, go to school events or give them extra money besides tuition.

    I am taking organic chemistry at the community college. I am transferring to UC Davis next fall. I did the TAG application. I am basically guaranteed admissions to Davis since I met all their requirements. I took this organic chem class because it was recommended for transferring. I do not need it for my major. I talked to a representative yesterday, and he said a W might impact Davis's decision to accept me. I've talked to others and they said a W won't be as bad as a D/F. I have never dropped a class or gotten below a B. This class is more so difficult because of how the professor has his exams, and they are all things we haven't covered much. The averages are D's and F's on the exams. I am barely holding on with a C- right now, and its the middle of the semester. I study so much for this one class, and because of that I fall behind on my others. So, I considered dropping and taking it next semester. However, if I drop, I won't be able to take Organic Chem 2 until next semester. I plan to study for the MCAT and take it next year but I can't because Organic Chem is on it. So should i: Drop, get a W, and not take organic chem at all until Davis. Drop, get a W, and take organic chem 1 at community college next semester and wait til Davis to take organic chem 2. OR Stick it through and try for a C- (if so, what should i do to better study and prep)
