  • Is 23 too old to start a Community college?

    Best answer: Not at all. Knock 'em dead. In some ways, you may be better prepared at 23 than an 18-year-old who is clueless about life and responsibility.

  • Is it worth finishing my bachelors at 30 years old?

    Best answer: Only 32 hours ? ......get your a** to class ! ;)
    A finished degree, even in a field you are not seeking employment in shows determination. It will get you a better job and in all honesty probably a better wife and your one day kids to be will have a dad to look up to because he didn't give up.

  • How long does it usually take to get a PhD?

    Is it an extra 4+ years on top of the 2 years it takes to get a masters? I'm looking into University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and it's saying students on average finish the PhD program in 7 years. Which seems a tad ridiculous to add onto the 4 from a bachelors too. So how long should I be expecting... show more

  • How do college students work a lot of hours without feeling drained?

    If a person spends 15 hours a week in class, 30 hours studying, and 20-25 hours at an off-campus job, it roughly equals a 65-70 hour work week (without including transportation time.) If you have a busy schedule without following a routine, wouldn't it interfere with academic performance? Or do colleges... show more

  • Are there any prestigious community colleges?

    I'm the first in my family that is going to go to college so its hard to ask them questions about stuff like this.

    I'm the first in my family that is going to go to college so its hard to ask them questions about stuff like this. I messed up my first 2 years of high school and i'm working on fixing that while keeping my current grades and future grades high. I talked to my counselor about college and he said, its too late to go to a university as a freshman and its easier to just transfer from a junior college to a university anyways. That kinda bummed me out because I was planning on going into a university as a freshman but that's okay. So my question is, is there any prestigious community colleges and if so, what are they and where are they. I live in California and don't want to go out of state so if you could name some in California, that would be great. Thanks in advance.

  • University of Iowa or Illinois State University?

    I can attend Illinois State as an in-state student for less money if I go out of state to Iowa. But I've heard my job prospects will be better if I attend Iowa because it's a Big 10 school and they have more resources. I'm unsure of my major but I think I may pursue business. Thoughts?

Also I know many colleges require high level mathematics and I'm not very good at math (mainly because I slack) I obviously won't be slacking entering college but the last time I completed/taken math was algebra 1!!!! So I would be really behind :( Also how good is the job demand for this major?

  • Is a psychiatry/psychology a common college major, and is it worth going into it?

    Best answer: It's extremely common, but without at least a master's degree, you can't go into psychology as a career. Professional psychologists, in fact, hold PhDs.

    However, many employers are willing to consider applicants from a variety of majors. Psychology isn't a bad major for people interested in going into something like advertising or marketing.

    Psychiatry is a medical field. For that, you have to earn a medical degree and do a hospital residency in psychiatry.

  • Can someone help explain GPA?

    You don t need to explain unweighted vs weighted- I m talking about unweighted. So, if you don t get a 4.0 in freshman year, you will never have a 4.0 ever in high school? For example, if I get one A- in Freshman year, but all As every other year for every other class, my GPA can t ever be a 4.0?

    I'm going to be a freshman at Temple University main campus this fall. I actually leave in 10 days to move into my dorm! As much as I am super excited to experience the college life, I have no idea what I am majoring in. My major is undeclared, and I've never had any clue what I want to do ever. My whole high school career I've been clueless, while I watched all of my friends and classmates pick their majors in sophomore year and begin building knowledge for it. I've talked to my teachers about it every year, and I've always got mixed responses. Half of them told me to go to college right away, that I'll find out what I want to do there. The other half told me to not waste my time and money by going straight to college and to take time off to find what I want to do. So I had two plans, either travel the US (I have family in almost every state, I was going to stay with them and my plan was to get a feel for their jobs to explore more major options while exploring new cities) or go to Temple University. I chose Temple. Which the first many months I thought was the best choice. But now, 10 days into moving away, I'm regretting it. With still NO IDEA on what to major in, I feel like I won't ever find out what I want to do in college. I feel like I should have listened to the other half and taken time to travel, explore, etc.
