• How do you live with the shame late schooling?

    I received by BA in Criminology by the time I was 24. But as I could not find a stable career and my graduating GPA was so poor, I've worked 3 years to pay off my student loan and find a way out of the hell hole I was in.

    I received by BA in Criminology by the time I was 24. But as I could not find a stable career and my graduating GPA was so poor, I've worked 3 years to pay off my student loan and find a way out of the hell hole I was in. Now I'm 27 and I am a cs student for a second degree. I've never had "legitimate" work. It seems I have a lot of talent in math and cs. But I am terrified of anyone at school finding out that I'm older than most of them. I am also terrified of anyone from my past finding out where I am right now. I am struggling with depression and extreme social anxiety. Although it doesn't seem to have a huge impact on my grades, I don't know if I will ever be able to overcome this terrifying experience. No matter where I end up, or how much salary I end up making after graduation, I will always know I've made some terrible mistakes in the past and that I am behind others who were born in the same or even later years than I was. I feel awful every single day. I think sometimes I'd rather die than live with this shame.

  • How to deal with students in college that are unprepared?

    Best answer: In college? I tended to just give the non-workers a brief rundown and left it at that. I am always willing to try to help, but as soon as I realize that my efforts trying to help are more than the person is giving of themselves in the first place, I move on to people who I can actually benefit. I don't see... show more

I am always willing to try to help, but as soon as I realize that my efforts trying to help are more than the person is giving of themselves in the first place, I move on to people who I can actually benefit. I don't see any use in doing their work for them. I will definitely help someone who is helping himself already, though, to paraphrase the bible. Those folks will actually appreciate the help and make use of it.

I couldn’t get the minimum points of chemistry labs and now I cannot do the semester exam, so I have to repeat a whole year again. But I dont want to, because I also quit some other universities of other programs, and I really got late about going to university as I am going to finish after 6 years. What should I do now? Should I repeat it the next year or go for something else? I am thinking of going to the US and start something else like Biotechnology!! HELP😭

  • Is there a way to let college admissions know about how someone got through school through cheating?

    My "friend" during junior year used to steal tests from teachers' desk drawers and memorize the answers. He also cheated and inflated the impact of a community service project he did. This is not my opinion or something I'm exaggerating. He is a well known cheater in my school, and he does that... show more
    My "friend" during junior year used to steal tests from teachers' desk drawers and memorize the answers. He also cheated and inflated the impact of a community service project he did. This is not my opinion or something I'm exaggerating. He is a well known cheater in my school, and he does that for subjects he's not strong in. Is there a way I could tell the colleges he's applying to about this. I don't think a cheater should get into the kinds of colleges he might get into over grades he didn't earn through his own hard work.

  • My Mom and Relatives Won't Let Me Roommate with Guys?

    I'm planning on transferring to a university from a community college soon, and the potential people I can roommate with are guys. But, my mom won't let me because she is uncomfortable with it.

    I'm planning on transferring to a university from a community college soon, and the potential people I can roommate with are guys. But, my mom won't let me because she is uncomfortable with it. She believes in the segregation of male and females in school settings and that they shouldn't be together since schools "try their best" in separating them in dorms. Also, she pointed out camps separating boys and girls. Knowing that she went to an all-girls college explains why she believes that, but that doesn't mean she should apply it to me. Actually, I am the first one within my family and relatives to consider in rooming with guys. I have relatives disapproving of me living with guys because they don't trust them and, of course, they're guys and I'm a girl. They're scared that if something might happened to me, they won't be there to help me since they're 6 hours away from me. They just don't like the fact that I would be the only girl in one apartment. I don't have or know any girls that I can roommate within the university, and I'm really close to my guy friends. I really trust them, and I know that they won't hurt me or anything. How do I convince my family and relatives, especially my mom, to let me rent an apartment and room with guys?

  • If college isn't meant for work training in the real world, why do they heavily advertise themselves as such?

    Best answer: There are colleges and colleges. The good ones, like Harvard College (and the rest of the Ivy League) have no need to advertise at all. Neither do the state colleges or a whole host of other ones. However, when a school teaching nothing but how to drive a truck is allowed to call itself a college, it dilutes the... show more

Neither do the state colleges or a whole host of other ones. However, when a school teaching nothing but how to drive a truck is allowed to call itself a college, it dilutes the value of a "college" education. These are the ones who advertise. You wouldn't think anything of it if these "colleges" were called trade schools, which is what they would be called in other states.

  • Being broke in college is miserable and stressful.?

    Best answer: If you're parents aren't giving you extra money, it would be wise to at least look for a weekend job. Or you could check out work study programs at your school where you only work 10-15 hours a week so it doesn't take away from your studies.

    Best answer: If you're parents aren't giving you extra money, it would be wise to at least look for a weekend job. Or you could check out work study programs at your school where you only work 10-15 hours a week so it doesn't take away from your studies. It's also helpful to recycle your garbage to get extra cash and take advantage of campus resources so you're not spending as much on supplies. Look at your personal budget to see what can be eliminated. Keep in mind that going out with your friends is more of a luxury than a necessity. Welcome to the adult world. Finances are going to get more stressful later on.
    -Or pick up an extra class if you have a surplus of time.
