• What is the point of an IQ test, if they aren't even fully impartial?

    Recently I paid to take an IQ test and they slapped me with a disgusting score of 132. But it's so stupid how they tested it.

    Recently I paid to take an IQ test and they slapped me with a disgusting score of 132. But it's so stupid how they tested it. As CS graduate student, I solved all of their math and logic questions in a heartbeat. But I got stumped on questions that asked me stuff from topics that I'm unfamiliar with. That's so stupid. If they asked questions on algorithm analysis that fully tests one's reasoning skills like finding and reducing runtime, or mathematical proofing, I'm pretty sure my IQ would've hiked above 140 without breaking a sweat. Instead they've asked me a barrage of dumb questions that I couldn't answer purely from not being familiar with the subject. Intelligence quotient my ***.

    I'm currently a senior and 17, and I'll be 17 up until like mid-semester of my first semester at college. I want to go to a school in a different city, but my parents are way overprotective. I'm not even exaggerating when I say they don't even let me go to our own backyard by myself. They would never even consider letting me move out for college. I really want this though. Not only is it a great school, I know I won't be happy staying back here. I need more freedom and independence. I'm tired of never going anywhere or doing anything just because they don't feel like it. I'm not irresponsible at all. Would it be possible for me to attend even without their support? I know them paying is an issue, but I think I could be able to qualify for some scholarships as I am currently valedictorian of my class. Thanks!

  • Do you have to live in a university in America?

    I’m an Episode writer who’s not from USA so I have to make my story in American. I have this episode where my characters go off to college but I’d rather have them stay in their homes. So do you have to move away from home to go to college?

  • By the year 2000 will most Americans be infected with AIDS?

    I keep hearing that our college campuses are riddled with AIDS now and that it's likely that most Americans will catch AIDS by the year 2000; AIDS is the number one health crisis for young heterosexuals and transmission is very simple. Should this be addressed with more funding?

I'm not taking anything that hard just chemistry, biology, calculus 2 and 2 more courses 18 credits. I plan to go to class then sit in the back of the room and just sleep the whole time. I'll set an alarm for when class is over to be sure i wake up in time. Im sure I'll still be able to get a 4.0 with no problem. Is this ok?

I managed to get a least 3.0 GPA throughout my sophomore year. But I’m still disappointed that I did not get any 90 in that year. Now I’m a junior and I put all of my effort to get a higher grade so I can get accepted to college I want to go to by the time I become a senior. I did not get my final grade yet and I may not get a 90 but I’m positive that my final grade for this semester is higher than both of my final grades from my sophomore year. I was wondering if I’m on a good path to getting accepted to colleges? I did not take the SAT yet but I’m practicing hard to get a high score. The colleges I want to go to are: 1) Penn State 2) University of Utah 3) Rutgers University

  • Does it matter what freshmen class you take?

    Best answer: People take all kinds of electives. You are SUPPOSED to do so. I can't imagine why you would think this might "look bad". As long as you complete your major requirements and do well, it doesn't MATTER what electives you might have taken. Undergraduate law courses don't really mean anything... show more

    Undergraduate law courses don't really mean anything as far as real law studies are concerned -- you have to do that in law school -- but certainly this could have been an interesting class, and no one will be at all concerned about it. I'm mystified as to why you feared otherwise.

  • Why do UK med schools allow undergrads to study medicine and waive all the necessary prerequisites like Organic and Biochemistry?

    How do they expect 18 year olds to just "master" biochemistry without any exposure to organic chemistry in their first year course? In the US, the standard biochemistry course is taken in the 3rd year after completion of 1 or 2 semesters of organic chemistry. For example, a physician who sees elevated levels of transminases like alanine aminotransferase would could a possible indicator of liver damage. The UK medical student would be a disadvantage to not even know what an alpha amino group / alpha keto group is. They would also have to know that the removal of an alpha amino group is accomplished by transaminases. Transaminases catalyze the transfer of an alpha amino group from an alpha amino acid to an alpha keto group. For example, alanine and alpha-ketolutarate through a transaminase produces pyruvate and glutamate. UK medical school students don't know organic chemistry (?) but they're learning "biochemistry" in their first year, so they don't even know anything about functional groups like carbonyls, carboxyls, thiols, alkyls, etc. Then by their 3rd year they are already seeing patients? Their science background is virtually nonexistent. If they saw a patient who suffers from a pyruvate carboxylase deficiency would they even understand the way the disease works? Or will they just waive their hand and say to refer to a book?

Should I apply for a reassignment? I want to be nice and I understand that she is entitled to her education, but me and my roommates are 19. And we do party alot and we can get really loud. I don’t want to feel like we need to be restricted in our own dorm apartment. But I definitely don’t want to be mean and complain, but I feel really uncomfortable. What should I do?? I’m very torn.
