  • I graduated but I don't want to work with anything related to my major?

    Best answer: Honestly, what do you really want to do now? Travel? Work in your field of interest? Talk to your parents about it. Say that you have a degree for namesake and it's your turn to take control of your life. Work for sometime just to support yourself and then maybe proceed in your field of interest.

    Best answer: You didn't miss much, man.

    Contrary to popular belief, not all of college is a booze-filled party and sex fest for everyone who goes there. There are party people in college and parties do occur, but if I'm honest, they're nothing special and they're not for everyone. Plenty of people in college are also quieter types who don't like to party. The party people are there as well, and if you really like loud gatherings with lots of drunk people, then they can be fun in that sense, but they aren't all that much fun otherwise. And it's never like the movies portray.

    I did go to my fair share of parties and get-togethers, and I made a lot of good friends in my time there, but that's about it. Some of my friends went to more than I did, some less. However, I never knew anyone who was partying and hooking up every single night like is sometimes portrayed.

    Also, keep in mind that the actual reason you go to college is to study and learn, not to party. The ones who are there with partying as their top priority, tend to flunk out sooner or later. That's not to say you cannot have a good time while you are in college (you should), but if you forget why you're actually there, you won't be there for long. And you won't get much of value out of it anyway- I walked away from college with two degrees and a job in the medical profession. That's what I was there for, and that's what I got. Some left as lawyers, nurses, engineers, whatever- and some left with nothing at all. That and within a few years, most of them either regretted, or at least no longer enjoyed, the stuff they did in their college years anyway.

As of now I am on track to getting my AS degree in Business and my AS degree in Economics in 2 semesters. I am planning on transferring over to the University of Utah to get my Bachelors in Business. After college, I have my uncle who has a bachelors in business making 6 figures in the field who is going to help guide me to getting a solid career going. I am however concerned with the idea of that GED coming back up to haunt me. Will it somehow come back to affect my future in anyway?

  • Why does college have to be so hard?

    so in college i noticed a person has to take so many worthless classes that have nothing to do with a major. in lots of these clases you gotta write long essays and read. But whats the point of taking classes that had nothing to do with a major? is that how colleges make money off you and is so expensive?

    I have had on-going respiratory infections and sinusitis that have never been diagnosed as chronic. Is there a way for me to ask my doctor if they can diagnose me with chronic respiratory infections and sinusitis? One reason for this is so that I can receive a medical note saying that I cannot live on-campus. My health has been the worst it has been all my life and I have required the university's requirements (two years on campus). However, I am required to live another year in university housing for my sorority. I am a student-athlete and my poor health these past two years has negatively affected my performance and grades. I would need a true diagnosis and doctor's note in order to do so. So can I kindly ask my doctor for a diagnosis so that I can firstly, get it finally treated, and two, so that I can live off-campus and be in more control of my health? Thanks!

    I'm not 32, but I'm planning on doing a masters, then working for 4 years to save up for medical school abroad and having a kid before I go (the kid will be 5 by the time I start med school). Is this a good plan? I fear that I will be infertile if I wait too long to have kids, as I already have health issues. The other option is to work for 2 years after my masters and take out a loan to cover med school. That way, I'll be 29 or 30 when I start and 34 when I finish. Is that a bad age to start trying for kids? I think it will be stressful because I'll be in debt and need to start my career.

    Strict attendance Politics seeping over into school curriculums and rules Universities are becoming less focused on "freedom" and more stringent on grades and attendance in order to receive sufficient funding. Sounds awfully similar to high school, does it not? These institutions should be where the brightest and most creative students thrive and relish in knowledge. Instead, colleges have been turned into adult babysitting centers where students and teachers' freedom is declining because governments have too much influence and power in Education. At this point there appears to be no difference between universities and high schools other than the fact that university costs and books aren't free in college like they are in high school. Colleges have become too structured and robotic, it's no wonder so many of these new grads panic when they're sent out into the real world. They did an addition 4 years of high school, except this one issues a degree rather than a diploma.

I called my university registrar's office and they told me diplomas are mailed out around 12 weeks after. Now I'm stressing that this will prevent me from getting this job in time for the Fall semester. I'm planning on going to talk to them in person to see if I can get it sooner, but what reason could there possibly be that it would take so long when other people I've talked to received their diplomas the DAY OF graduation at their schools?

    I'm a year and three months from graduating and am currently taking my second graphic design class, but I've been realizing that I really dislike graphic design. It honestly bores me and I don't feel any desire to do it as a profession. I've always been artistic but feel that a career in graphic design just isn't for me. Ive been recently setting my sights on getting a psychology degree then getting my masters to become a therapist/art therapist. It will take me an additional year to get a psychology degree then two more for my masters. I'm 24 now and feel that this would be the best time. My question is, am I totally crazy for switching career paths? I mean I have really looked into psychology/therapy and believe I'd be good at it. I've taken statistics before and I loved it. Reading and writing I enjoy so the workload won't phase me much. I just feel like such a failure for changing career plans this late in the game.
