  • How do I tell someone that I don’t feel comfortable with them taking pictures of my assignments when the professor hands them back in class?

    I’m doing well in this class so far and have gotten good grades on both quizzes. But each time the professor handed them back afterwards, the guy sitting next to me looks over at mine and sees that I have done well (which is already an invasion of my privacy) and then asks to see it.

    I’m doing well in this class so far and have gotten good grades on both quizzes. But each time the professor handed them back afterwards, the guy sitting next to me looks over at mine and sees that I have done well (which is already an invasion of my privacy) and then asks to see it. Both times, I’ve given it to him and he took out his phone and took pictures of my quizzes. I really don’t feel comfortable with this because 1) he will have my grades to look at forever and 2) I put hard work into those and I don’t like him taking it. Am I overreacting? How do I politely tell him that I don’t like this?

  • How wrong would it be if my parents paid for my college in full?

    Best answer: It would be wrong to allow them to go into debt for it, or to spend their retirement savings. If there are any loans to be taken out, you might as well take them yourself. But if they can afford it through their income or college savings, then there's nothing wrong with it at all. You can offer to pay it back,... show more

    But if they can afford it through their income or college savings, then there's nothing wrong with it at all. You can offer to pay it back, or "pay it forward" by saving to send your own children through college.

  • Which is better for Law? Harvards/Stanford of Oxford/Cambridge?

    Best answer: 1. You cannot compare a British law degree with a US law degree because they are not fungible. 2. Unless you already have a first law degree, you cannot do an LLM. 3.

    Best answer: 1. You cannot compare a British law degree with a US law degree because they are not fungible.
    2. Unless you already have a first law degree, you cannot do an LLM.
    3. If you do have a law degree, an LLM is is pretty pointless unless you want to specialise in something like international tax.
    4. You should always study law in the country where you intend to work. In the UK that will be an LLB, in the US it will be a JD.

    Oxford university is a great place to get an LLB. Harvard (note the spelling), Yale and Stanford would be the top US law schools for a JD. In any of these schools you will be learning legal theory. The top law schools do not teach laws, that is only done at lower tier schools. You will be expected to apply the theory that you have learned when you qualify in country you live in.

    before my boyfriend and i found each other, we both applied to colleges. now months later, we are dating and we both got into the same college. i got into two other schools and am waiting on their letters. financially and logistically speaking, it wouldn t make sense for me to go to the two schools i m waiting on because of money and everything when i can get instate tuition. both of us are sure of going to that school, for two different things (him for chemical engineering, me for environmental policy and law) and even if we do break up at some point before college starts or in the middle of it, is it logical to go to the same school if there are other factors or should i go to one of the schools across the country? I don t want to sound selfish because I love one of the schools, but it wouldn t make sense monetary wise. What do you all think I should do?

Is university degree more valuable then those of community college degree — like will you a higher chance of getting accepted in a job with a university degree then a community college degree? Or is university has more available financial programs then C.C.? I mean, I just hear that most people want to go to universities and is way better then a C.C. How is it better or what’s so special about it? I’m asking this question because I need to enroll in one — but not sure which one? Please help.

  • Are you allowed to take only one college course?

    I hate when you pick one class then they say "oh you have to take a science, math and English class just to have this class."

    Im Asian n some of western values over academics seems a little unfathomable to me. Is impersonation in a class an academic offense like Impersonation on a test, as David attends a class for Sam, signs in the name "Sam", and tells the professor or classgiver that Sam's attending the class? Some of my friends ve told me that it's hardly possible to get away from an accusations if u copy another student's work either partially or completely, or if you duplicate an article from Google research findings on your work? More over, abuse of excused absence could be a problem in an American college, is it true? I ve seen from Chinese news that some students get harsh punishments just for such unnoticeable wrongdoings? What do you feel about it? From my perspective, we do need to be honest to make good beings, while everyone desire for tolerance and has some issues to address at times. To sign in another student's name or write a copy on your work is rarely considered as a misconduct in my university. I am a college student in China and I have some friends who currently study in America. Could you make it penetrable for me, the definition of academic misconduct? What should I tell my friends to do and no to do therefore to be so meant bona-fide students?

    So I was touring a dorm and all the floors were co-sex. Which I think is cool. But as we were being showed around we came across the showers in the middle of the dorm. This was the only shower/ bathroom I saw (small college) and there was no male or female sign outside. Inside there were no urinals. I was too embarrassed to ask if it was co-sex because that sounded so weird. But afterwards my mom was asking me about it becuase she got that impression too. So is that normal?

    I want to be a neuroscientist so I would naturally major in Neuroscience for my undergrad in college before graduate school. However, I really love music and have been playing the piano and violin since I was quite young and wanted to be a music teacher for a while. Would it be beneficial for me to do a double major in Neuroscience and Sacred Music? I still want to keep music and religion in my life as an adult and having a church job to help pay for graduate school seems beneficial. Any advice? Thanks! (yes, I know that my undergraduate would probably take 5 years)

    Best answer: Very few to none actually. Most places that deal in allied health need licenses & certifications to be able to perform tasks.

    Best answer: Very few to none actually. Most places that deal in allied health need licenses & certifications to be able to perform tasks. High school classes are really not all that useful in terms of knowledge for this. Even people who just log in specimens are usually MAs, or MLTs etc. You could possibly volunteer in a hospital but I have never seen volunteers around the lab or pathology. Internships are usually for people already in some sort of training program or set up in college (in the health/medical field), So for now, just be a high school student and things will change.

    Though from my understanding, a lot of schools require that you take some sort of public speaking course. If you do have to take one as part of your GE, one of the best pieces of advice I can give you is to get it over with ASAP. Sure you can wait, but do you really want to wait until the last semester to take a class you could have finished in your first couple of semesters of school?

    Best answer: Definitely live in the dorm for your freshman year.

    1. Do you need an annual (12-month) lease for the off-campus apartment? If so, it won't be cheaper at all, unless you plan to stay at school all summer (or if you can sublet it). Does it include free cable/WiFi access? The dorm will. Is it _completely_ furnished (including pots and pans, eating utensils, vacuum cleaner, etc.)? If not, furnishings can be a tremendous expense.

    2. It's difficult enough to be on your own for the first time without having to take care of an apartment, deal with a landlord, do your own cooking, and commute added on top of everything.

    3. College-level work can be much more difficult than high school AP classes or even community college classes. You'll gain a lot of studying time by not having to commute, cook and clean up after your meals.

    4. You'll be more socially isolated if you live off campus. In the fall, there'll be thousands of new freshment all looking to make new friends. Instead of being in the thick of things, you'll be alone in your apartment. Much of the parties, activities etc. in college are completely spontaneous: someone wanders down the hall, says he's sick of studying and is anyone interested in ordering a pizza, and bam! instant party. Even you best friends won't think to call or text you to invite you to some spur-of-the-moment activities.

    5. The dining service has a nutritionist you can call to ask about a vegetarian diet. It's difficult to believe that your options will be so VERY limited (especially if you eat eggs and dairy. I used to make instant oatmeal in my room in the early AM, and get my lunch in the late morning when they were still serving breakfast, because they had cook-to-order eggs at breakfast.)

    I dormed all four years of college (in a single room in a three-woman suite my last two years). In law school, I lived in an off-campus apartment less than two miles from the school, and would have lived in a dorm in a shot had my university had any available for graduate students.

    I am 23 years old and I've been a hair dresser since I graduated h.s. I am looking to go back to college and earn a degree after years of thinking about it. I'd like to earn my degree online so I can also work full time. So my first question is.. Is a business administration degree with a focus in economics good? and by good I mean will I be able to get a job with that kind of degree after graduation...I don't want to waste my time. Also I found a university called American Public University. the tuition price is very good. total of 34000 for 4 years 270 per credit... but I've read some mixed reviews written by students such as professors don't give so much feed back....one person even said that when she went to look for a job the employer had never heard of that school. will this matter big time when looking for employment? I am aware that if the school is well known its better...but I mean I don't want to waste my time effort and money so can someone please make a suggestion thank you so much.
