• Why do people need to study at a university?

    Give me a good reason to study at a university. Because if you want to get a job a community college is good enough.

  • Was this a trick question?

    I have to attend a meeting and can't attend this class at the same time. So I emailed the prof saying I'll be absent. She replied back asking if I can attend class by Google Hangout or esle I will have to do a makeup assignment. Was she testing if I was just skipping class for no reason?

    To whom it may concern, I have just gotten accepted to my top choice college, and am ecstatic; I initially applied as a Spanish (BA) major, but am considering requesting a change to Philosophy (BA) for fall 2018. I have done the research, and those who majored in Humanities and Social Science programs not only scored higher on the MCAT, but also looked unique to medical schools and had a higher chance of admission... this means everything to me. Since I have not started yet, I should have no issue requesting a change of major, especially considering the fact that it's within the same department (College of Humanities and Social Sciences); but nevertheless, I am having a difficult time deciding! I live in Wisconsin, but the college of which I was accepted to is in Texas (where I also plan to practice medicine), so speaking Spanish would be an excellent choice... just struggling with a decision!

    Best answer: No fear mongering here. It depends upon the individual and the school. Insecure people will try to make you feel helpless and scared. Most kids are regular kids. There’ll be kids with issues. Steer clear.

    Do you think an urban school in a poor area is going to be identical to the high school in a we’ll to do university town, or a rural school? They’re all different.

    Do you know any kids who aren’t homeschooled? Ask them about the local schools in your town. They have the real experience. Mrs. jones from the homeschooling co-op May just want to frighten you with how awful it is. If you don’t, get out and meet some. Join a church youth group and do something in your community. It’s important to do that now or you’ll go through culture shock when you have to work or go to college. Those same kids everyone is scared of now go on to have a life after high school

    Best answer: What drip said, for the most part.

    We go to high school (typically) ages 14-17. High school is free, and more than 90% of U.S. children complete high school.

    The terms "college" and "university" are more or less synonymic in the U.S. The distinction is one of size: a "college" awards only bachelor's degrees, with a smattering of academic graduate degrees; a "university" consists for several undergraduate "colleges" (e.g Arts and Sciences, Business, Nursing, Engineering, Education, etc.) and professional graduate schools (e.g. Law, Medicine, Dentistry, etc.). However, you say you are "going to college" if you are enrolled in any bachelor's degree program, whether you are enrolled in a small liberal arts college or a large university.

    Another distinction is "community college" or "junior college" which are two-(or so) year colleges that grant associate's degrees. They can either be terminal degrees that are vocational in nature, such as dental hygiene, veterinary technology, or radiological technology; or "transfer" degrees that stand in for the first two years of a bachelor's degree. People enrolled in the latter transfer to a four-year university after two years at community college.

    In the U.S., medical school is graduate school; you need to get a four-year bachelor's degree first. Medical school itself is another four years. Then you becomes a "resident" in your field of choice (or in whatever field you can get a placement; it's quite competitive). The length of residencies vary by field and by hospital; e.g. general surgery might be five years, neurosurgery seven years, and pediatrics might be three years.

  • Is having a B.A. degree better than not having one at all? Do employers really care about your major?

    I mean Bachelor's of Arts, so it would be a Bachelor's degree from a 4 yr university, (non STEM related).

    I mean Bachelor's of Arts, so it would be a Bachelor's degree from a 4 yr university, (non STEM related). So is having a B.A. better/ more beneficial on getting a career/job and does it look better on a resume than not having one/ anything at all? I think it's better to have a Bachelor's degree in anything, even if it's Art, Sociology, or English; rather than not having one at all... In my case it's Philosophy.......my point is that I KNOW that STEM majors may train you more specifically for a job than a B.A. but wouldn't someone who has a B.A. be more qualified for any job than someone who has no college degree at all? The point in me getting a B.A. is so I can show it on my resume-- that I have at least a Bachelor's, it makes you more qualified for a higher paid job compared to someone who has no degree. I have 3 AA Degrees. If I got a STEM major, it would take forever for me to graduate since i'm not the math or science type and you must take so many math courses and difficult science courses for most STEM majors. so i just want a Bachelor's. But I also do not want to be stuck on only doing things in my major, so i'm planning on getting training at a more practical job like Business or tech and getting a certificate so I have some experience. I hope employers won't just hire those in a very specific major.

    I am currently 16 years old. I am a Junior in high school. I am not good at anything and have no talent at anything. My grades are all Fs and worrying about my Future stresses me out. I'm worried that I'm gonna end up like my mom and dad. They were both alcholics and drug users but not anymore. They stopped doing dumb stuff and they want me to go to college and be successful person. What I'm thinking is that I don't have the potential to be what they want me to be. My grades have been bad ever since like elementary school. I struggled to keep my grades a passing grade ever since then. I always put me fullest into my work but end up with a C other than an A. So it feels as if there's no point in trying anymore. I have been thinking about learning a trade in carpentry or something like that. It's just my grades that is keeping me from reaching that goal. My sister is a year older than me and she is the opposite of me. She has all good grades and gpa and she's getting ready for college. Maybe having a successful life isn't meant for me. So I'm thinking that I just drop out and work at a minimum wage job and work my way from there. I don't see myself graduating or going to college.

    I read somewhere where this girl said colleges are basically glorified high schools with professors who have no real world experience other than teaching at that particular college. Thoughts?
