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

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

    I don't understand why people only take one major when it's not hard at all to have two at most universities. Most majors only require 30-40 credits in that specialty, other than the hardest ones like engineering of course, so that leaves a lot of space to add a second one without even struggling to do... show more
    I don't understand why people only take one major when it's not hard at all to have two at most universities. Most majors only require 30-40 credits in that specialty, other than the hardest ones like engineering of course, so that leaves a lot of space to add a second one without even struggling to do it. I'm a current college student, and after spending a day researching majors, which classes are needed, how many overlap with general education requirement etc. I realized it was possible for me to do three majors and two minors if I wanted to, without going very much over the normal 120 credit graduation requirement (it was 126). Yes, three majors and two minors for almost the exact same cost and time spent as just one major. People don't have to be that extreme of course, and I don't plan on doing that, but I am definitely double majoring. Especially for people in the Liberal Arts where employment is hard to find at first, it makes so much sense to just combine your random electives into another major that can help you get a job. If you like random elective classes just for fun, I get that, but you can go back and take those classes for fun years later too. You only get one chance to double major and increase your starting salary and career trajectory because of it. Same thing for dual degrees on the Masters level. You can get one Masters in 2 years, or two Masters in 3 years. Doing two is far more valuable for only one extra year. Why don't more people do this?

  • Night or Morning?

    Best answer: Night, at least if you can't finish you know how much more time you need to finish it the next day. Or you could easily finished it at night, then in the morning you know your work is done, and could double check your work.

  • Can some spelling errors on a resume be overlooked?

    I just realized after sending in an application that I had wrote down that I answered phones for a municipal public school's, switchboard instead of a municipal public schools' system. Is this an egregious spelling error, or could it be overlooked?

  • Is this grammatically correct? Or a better suggestion?

    Best answer: In formal writing, the pronoun should technically be the same case as the noun or pronoun in the original sentence. For example, if someone says, "He gave a book to me", you might say, "Me, too" So it is correct, but more informal than formal. In formal English you would word the sentence... show more

    So it is correct, but more informal than formal. In formal English you would word the sentence differently - but informal and in speech related writing it is correct.

  • Can someone be considered intelligent, even if that can't spell for shite?

    Best answer: Intelligence comes in many forms, and sometimes is offset by quirks such as that. The most extreme cases would be called idiot-savants: brilliant in some ways and completely non-functional in many others. Most of us are sharp in some ways and less so in others, without being either brilliant or completely... show more
    Best answer: Intelligence comes in many forms, and sometimes is offset by quirks such as that. The most extreme cases would be called idiot-savants: brilliant in some ways and completely non-functional in many others. Most of us are sharp in some ways and less so in others, without being either brilliant or completely dysfunctional in any way.

    I suspect that your spelling issues are less a learning dysfunction (like a dyslexic might face) and more a lack of effort. that is much more usual, at least (correctable if you so choose). It doesn't make you less intelligent, but it does leave open the possibility of being judged that way by others, even if incorrectly.

  • Does college make you smart?

    Best answer: Coursework, independent thinking, research, etc, all exercise your brain. So a smart person will get "smarter," use more of their brain.
