• Why do some college students choose to go into huge amounts of debt to attend an expensive school when they could go to a community college?

    For me, I went to CC and now have some debt but not much. I should be able to pah it off in 2 years. Also, why would someone go to an expensive school and earn a degree that will not enable to get them a decent job to pay off the debt? Why wouldn't they just go to community college and work to pay for it?

  • Why are so many classes required in order to transfer from a community college?

    You typically expect to transfer in 2-3 years. However, I had to take all of these classes: Public Speaking, Philosophy, Psychology, Poetry, Critical Thinking, Humanities, World History, Cultural Geography, Language 1 & 2, PE, Government, English (2 quarters). PreCalc (1 year), Intro to Chem (1 quarter),... show more
    You typically expect to transfer in 2-3 years. However, I had to take all of these classes: Public Speaking, Philosophy, Psychology, Poetry, Critical Thinking, Humanities, World History, Cultural Geography, Language 1 & 2, PE, Government, English (2 quarters). PreCalc (1 year), Intro to Chem (1 quarter), General Chem (1 year), Organic Chemistry (1 year), Calculus (1 year). I still have to take Physics (1 year) and Biology (1 year) which I ll take this next year. To get into a couple UCs, a quarter of statistics is also recommended. And for myself, I also took 1 year of Anatomy and Physio and 1 quarter of Human Bio. I m embarrassed to reveal how long I ve been at community college. I m also not sure why I can still only consider myself a sophomore! I was near finishing all of the earlier GE requirements, expecting that I would be able to transfer soon....when my counselor gave me a list of more classes that I needed to complete (the math/science). This is all before transferring. My major is Biological Sciences or Biochemistry. After transferring, I will need to take a number of upper division courses (Genetics, Cell Bio, Immunology, etc etc etc)....

  • Concerning entry requirements.can i be rejected by just being one grade off for gcse maths(instead of A i have a B)?

    Best answer: You can certainly apply. It will depend on how many other candidates apply for that course and their marks in general.
    Don't let it put you off.

  • What’s the point of school if we can’t afford college?

    Best answer: To educate the public so we can avoid electing another ignorant Muppet as president. As well, where do you think you learned the skills in order to even ask this question? Nobody has to go to college or Uni, there are other career paths. The U.S. school system is terrible in comparison to other first world... show more

Nobody has to go to college or Uni, there are other career paths. The U.S. school system is terrible in comparison to other first world countries, but high tuition fees doesn't mean education is any less important.

    Not colleges or community colleges . Only universities . I’m going to be a senior this year and have to apply . My SAT scores are 920 ( pretty bad) but I am schedule to take it again and also I’m going to take the SAT Subject . My gpa is 93 which I think is 3.6-3.8 not sure . I’m trying to raise it . I been in the honor role my entire junior year and I’m going to take 2 AP classes , 1 honor and an elective for science since I already took all my science class . This past year I only had 95+.Also, gonna take 8 classes. I moved to a new school my junior year and only missed 8 days. I get send mail , emails and calls from a lot of uni but that’s peobably just promotion not like they actually want me . I live in New Jersey right now but I want to go to a uni out of state . I don’t do extra curricular activities anymore but I used to do swimming , choir, play instruments while in high school. Also, I did some community services and had a job as a teacher assistant in a summer camp. I haven’t been the best student since freshmen and sophomore were my worst years , I skip a class too many times . I’m not trying to be seen as a good student because I’m not . I just want an honest opinion, I don’t care where the university is but I really want to get into a 4 year one . I’m not trying to get into a big league school because I know my limits and I know I won’t get in . I don’t have money so I can’t pay for higher education but I will apply for financial help. What do you think ?

  • Why do colleges teach that money is evil, yet require you give them large sums of money just to hear them tell you that?

    Best answer: My university didn't teach that. Maybe you should do a real degree instead of one of the humanities?

    So I'm going to be a senior in high school, and our college applications are due in just a few months, but I can't decide how far I want to go. I used to always say I wanted to get out of the south (i live in texas) but now that the time is actually coming to apply I don't know that I would be able to go so far away. My top options, schools that I absolute love are: UCLA, CU Boulder, NYU, and Penn state, but my parents don't want me to go that far away, even though I'm paying. I'm not as worried about going that far as much as I am about having to pay for plane tickets and travel costs and just how much time it would take to get to there and back. Is it worth it to go to college far away? I know I would love it, but its such a huge risk if i didn't (note, I get in state tuition at any public state university, so my tuition won't be hugely expensive). Thanks!!
