• Do employers really care where you go to college?

    Best answer: It depends on the job and the area where you want to work. If you want to go into finance in NYC, absolutely it matters. The big firms will only accept the top students from the top universities. Employers on the east coast in general are pretty impressed by your alma mater.

    Best answer: It depends on the job and the area where you want to work.

    If you want to go into finance in NYC, absolutely it matters. The big firms will only accept the top students from the top universities. Employers on the east coast in general are pretty impressed by your alma mater. I'm an attorney, and the fact that I went to the same Ivy League university (undergraduate) as the boss's daughter certainly was a factor in my selection for an attorney position in NY.

    If you want to work as an engineer in the midwest, not so much. There are local rivalries about who went to KU, K State, Mizzou, etc., but the appropriate degree from any school will get you in the door.

    Don't let your parents convince you to take out enormous loans just to go to a famous university. If they want you to go there so bad, let THEM pay for it. That said, some private schools have a lot of money for scholarships, and could end up costing you less than a state school.

    You can go on a "college tour" or two during your junior year to visit some colleges. Apply to a number of schools, in-state and out, public and private, your parents' favorites and your own, and for the available financial aid at each school. Then, when you get your offers, you can do a true comparison ased on cost, academics and other factors.

I don’t know anyone over there so I can’t pick someone. Thanks:)

  • Do you think I'll probably not find a job with my degree?

    I'm graduating with a B.S. in Computer Science. I've applied for like 100 internships while in college and I've had a lot of interviews, but I've never actually had an internship offer.

I kinda cheated on a lot of my programming assignments because I didn't understand how to do them. In every class that wasn't computer programming, I seemed to do good in. But, the whole point of my degree seems to be computer programming, so I don't know if I'll ever find a job in Computer Science.

  • Have you ever gone to a class that you weren't registered for?

    I've been dying to attend pathophysiology and parasitology, but I can't take them since it is not in my major...I looked up the class and each has about 60-100 students. Is it illegal to attend one?

    Im currently a rising sophomore in college biology pre med major, in hopes to become a pediatrician. I have a passion for entering the medical field and plan on attending medical school after undergrad. I know that'll be about another 4 years of school and i'll still be pretty young by the time i finish but I've always had the idea of starting a family by the time im 25. By that time ill still be in med school but i also have to do my residency, fellowship, etc. I want to be able to do all of that but i most likely won't be really established into my career until im about 30. Nothings wrong with being 30 and starting a family, but i would like to know from any personal experiences with med school and if it holds you back from starting a family?

I have heard there are jobs that require little to no study that will make you big money and also where they’re possibilities to “scale up”, College just seems too expensive especially for someone who just doesn’t like to do a lot of school and that would rather work but I also want to make good money and not just stay in the same position forever

    I was taking classes at one university (A), but then I decided to transfer to another university (B) to see whether it would be a better place or not. After finishing one semester there, I passed all classes, but I felt this university (B) wasn't suitable for me. Therefore, I let them know that I quit this and continued to study at the previous one (A). Is it okay for me to not transfer the classes I took at the new school (B) to my current university (A)? To me, that is not necessary since I have already completed all of requirements of university A. Thanks in advance!
