  • Is my life over if I don't go to university?

    I can definitely see myself getting some education beyond high school, but am not sure if I'm university material. I took mostly general classes in high school and graduated with a 3.4 GPA.

    I can definitely see myself getting some education beyond high school, but am not sure if I'm university material. I took mostly general classes in high school and graduated with a 3.4 GPA. (Really if I would have taken advanced classes I probably would have been a C student.) I took some business electives and found out I'm really good in accounting. I was looking at a two year program at a local community college and would like to get a part-time job as a bank teller as I go to build up my resume. However, my family says associate's degree in accounting are worthless....how true is this? Should I consider a different career path?

    I'm going to start of by saying that history has always been a lifelong passion of mines. I'm currently an incoming senior in high school with a lifelong passion for history. I've always wanted to major in history but now that I've talked to some people and did research on the major and I haven't heard many positives about it. Whenever I tell others that I want to major in history, all I'm told is that I shouldn't major in it. The only positive I've ever heard was that I should major in history if it makes me happy, which isn't a good enough argument for me. I'm only interested in careers that are directly related to history and I understand that the majority of careers related to history are in teaching. The problem is that I don't want to become a teacher. I'm torn at this point between choosing a major that'll bring in more money or choosing a major that I am passionate about and know that I'll be happy studying. I've looked into other alternative majors but none have piqued my interest that much. I'm here as a last resort for any other opinions on majoring history so any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

  • Is graduating from top colleges worth it?

    Many adults say it’s worth it, but I’m not sure if those colleges will pay off at the end.

  • I just got my first C ever, and I am freaking out! Will I still get into a good college?

    I just finished my sophomore year of high school. Freshmen year, I got a 4.0 gpa and my cumulative high school gpa unweighted is a 3.8 and weighted is a 4.2, now. What I am nervous about is whether a C will stand out so much that I will not be looked at by top schools and will be seen as an F.

  • Do colleges accept exactly as many students as they can hold, or do they overshoot a bit to account for those who decide to go elsewhere?

    Best answer: They overshoot based on historic levels of accepted offers in prior years. Very conservatively, though, to avoid more students accepting offers than they can handle, which can be fairly disasterous. Instead, they will accept a number of students on a waiting list, to fill in the class if fewer than expected... show more
    Best answer: They overshoot based on historic levels of accepted offers in prior years. Very conservatively, though, to avoid more students accepting offers than they can handle, which can be fairly disasterous. Instead, they will accept a number of students on a waiting list, to fill in the class if fewer than expected applicants accept offers.

    On very rare occasions, colleges guess wrong and end up with more students than they can accommodate. In these situations, their response varies pretty widely, from revoking acceptances for trivial reasons (e.g. late final transcripts), to offering year-long deferrals (sometimes with guaranteed exceptance after a year at a community college), to setting up special programs off-campus or abroad.

    I’ll be graduatig high school in 2 weeks. I thought I knew what I wanted to study, but I still don’t and I’m really stressed. I don’t know what i like anymore. My mom (a doctor) wants me to choose a career in medicine. Every time I mention I’m thinking of studying something else I can see the disappointment in her face while she looks at me and tells me to reconsider. You have no idea how many times I’ve cried over this, I’m lost. Medicine is not for everybody, I’ve taken anatomy and physiology in school and there’s a lot of memorizing and learning that I just can’t trust myself on having to save anybody’s life. I was thinking maybe a therapist or something of that nature. I’m so confused I’ve spent so much time crying and watching videos on different careers on youtube. I don’t know what to do.

    Best answer: You need to graduate high school, then get through college before going to Vet school. So four year of undergrad studies, take the VCAT exam and four more year of Vet school. Vet schools are extremely competitive, it is difficult to get accepted into one. There are only about 30Vet schools in the USA. They are also very expensive.

    Right now focus on academics. Good study skills, time management skills and organization. Taking calculus, physics, biology, chemistry.
    You will need to take two years of general education classes in college. By that time you will know what you can handle and your grades in your gen ed classes will tell you if you have a chance at Vet school. In college you will need to take prerequisites classes for Vet school. As long as you take all prerequisites classes you can major or minor in anything you want to.

    Michigan State University is considered a top notch school. It has an excellent reputation.

  • How can I have a copy of a transcript from my former college, if I owe them less than $5,000?

    I went to a private college from July,2017-April 2018 for Cosmetology and dropped due to a few situations, I moved farther from the school and was a couple of minutes late, they lock you out after 1 minute, the few instructors and program director we had, quit, due to Miller- Motte's ignorance ( Google WMBF news, Miller-Motte technical college around March 2018) and didn't log our hours. We got a new director and instructor, that were trying to log the hours in with state board, and they lost the log. so they had to enter it manually. It was a mess and it still is. I found a new Cosmetology school up the road, sole owner, accepts monthly payments and you pay by the hour of instruction-they use the same program so my hours would transfer. I only need 800 more hours. MM's tuition was $22,000 and this school is $4,000 for 1540 hours. How can I get my transcript from them so I may start this new school? Thank you in advance.
