**** like this is why I have a 2.2 gpa... You know what they say though, C's get degrees.
User avatar #104 to #1 - ILikeGreen (07/04/2013) [-]
I did this and had a 3.7 gpa freshman year college.
Just make sure the work is god the first time, and then you only hve to do it that one time.

C's get Bachelors degrees. Good luck getting into grad school. which, you know, is basically required now days to be above anyone else (since everyone and their mom has a bachelors these days)
User avatar #69 to #31 - drunkasaurus ONLINE (07/03/2013) [-]
I'm not really worried about it. I can live with making 30k a year, I just didn't want a job where I had to be outside all day, or working in the service industry. I'd happily do some ******** dead end desk job until the end of time.

People who set ridiculously high expectations for their future just end up working their ass off their whole life trying to achieve those goals, never able to appreciate the things they have, or have any time to enjoy them. I do a minimal amount of work, sort of skate by, get drunk with my friends, play tons of video games, and usually save up enough money to go on vacation every year or two. I'm already perfectly content with my life and I work at Chipotle. I certainly don't want to work there forever, and would appreciate a desk job, so I'll get my bachelor's degree, but other than that I don't really think there's much else I need out of life.
#116 to #113 - golbot (07/04/2013) [-]
That basically sounds like a **** life. No plans on supporting a family? no plans on seeing the world? i dont know about you, but i would rather work my ass off to get a job that i love, instead of hating my job.

But hey, its not my life to judge.
#117 to #116 - drunkasaurus ONLINE (07/04/2013) [-]
lol **** no I don't have plans for supporting a family. I've gotten sick of every person I've ever dated after a about a month, and I find kids way too annoying after like an hour dealing with them. Plus I really hate having sex anyways, I don't like being that close to people. Like I said, I do enjoy traveling, and just for example I went to Hawaii by myself last spring break, here's a picture I took from the top of the Diamondhead volcanic crater.

I don't get why you got a thumbs down. It is true...I mean yeah there will be people that will say "you don't need a degree really it's all about how you can apply yourself". I mean to a certain extant that's true but not everyone is a bill gates or a mark zuckerberg(who both were smart enough to get accepted into harvard).
User avatar #3 to #1 - bladebites (07/03/2013) [-]
Seriously. I mean, I'm not the smartest person out there, but I know what I'm doing. I get good grades on exams because I listen, I just don't do the work. I'm lazy, which I guess is worse than not understanding the subjects because it means I'm just a lazy **** . I plan on trying a lot harder from this point on though, so hopefully that will work out.

Due Monday? Do Monday.

Seriously, it's difficult to get motivated when the instructor is a dick or the subject barely matters for your major. Doesn't help that a college degree doesn't count for dick if nobody will hire you.

Every major still requires you to take a bunch of electives that more than often will have nothing to do with your major.

First semester is always easiest, especially if you're not taking a lot of classes.

You haven't had to deal with the ******** some of these professors deal out, nor the seemingly planned workloads that land on you all on the same. The stress starts building up after the first semester, and gets even worse when you get to your core classes.

Not to say I didn't enjoy it; I liked a lot of my classes, but it get's stressful.
User avatar #14 to #10 - spankyy (07/03/2013) [-]
My only problem was that half the teachers treated it a lot like high school. Scolding me for not being in class (and one of them dropped me for being late, I got there during roll call, before she said my name, a handful of times). It wasn't terrible, it was just dumb. My math teacher gave no ***** about whether I was there, or if I was on time. I paid for the class already so he didn't give a **** if I didn't take my education.

All-in-all it wasn't that bad.

Well...

College is more enjoyable socially. Most people will be friendly and helpful, the number of assholes and insecure people is way lower than highschool. Parties, alcohol, trips, meeting people. The environment is more friendly (but there will still be assholes that will try to team up with you in class and leave you to do all the work)

However it also becomes stressfull the more years pass down, you start with more heavy subjects (depending on the career too it will bemore dificult, engineering is quite different from DJ 4DM1Nistrative careers) you have to worry about workig part time to get some experience, tesis project, investigations and your social life will start to die if you pretend to finish within 4-5 years.

I enjoyed it much more than highschool but again depending on the career and the peace you set it can become a bit stressful.
#86 to #10 - anon (07/03/2013) [-]
Well, I went to college to become a veterinarian and personally, if was the money stressing and the peer pressure that ranged anywhere from drugs to sexy things. I had a mix of **** and good proffessors, and one of the **** had the worst case of a holier than thou attitude, and I've heard of that kind of proffesor a lot. And I have a personality where I act friendly, to be exact like a friend to people, and some people just get pissed when people do that. And if most of the site really is so blan and "forever alone" then that could be why. And it's also some of the ******** things you had to do. Like " ***** I aint need no degree in trigonometry ++ advanced, I need to doctor the damn animals." I also think its from the stress of having no money and no time unless you lived with your family or girlfriend/wife as I do.
User avatar #98 to #10 - zoidz ONLINE (07/04/2013) [-]
Some obligated classes that the school government thing makes you have, which has hardly anything to do with the course. Then the only other one is, every college is far as living hell from home! (Closest one is about 45min by van, mines ~1h10min).
User avatar #115 to #10 - hookydoo ONLINE (07/04/2013) [-]
one other thing.

In large universities, you can make it rain with good grades and a good personality. Get chummy with your professors, they can help you gain access to great student jobs and special scholarships. It helps in america if your parents are lower income, then the gooberment gives you money too.
#28 to #10 - anon (07/03/2013) [-]
that depends on your major

Well I haven't been to college yet (starting next year I'm a Junior in high school), but from what I've heard it's more pleasant in terms of people. I desperately hope that's true, because the people I go to school with make me pray for a nuclear holocaust.
User avatar #17 to #12 - spankyy (07/03/2013) [-]
well think of it this way, you'll only end up talking to people you care to talk to. You won't be stuck there between classes if you don't want to be (even if you don't have a car you can walk across the street to a shopping center or something). You don't have to stay in a class, and you'll only see them for one semester. If you don't want to risk getting the follow-up course with them, then just cover some other classes that you need for your degree instead, and take it the following semester. Staggering your classes essentially.
User avatar #18 to #17 - bladebites (07/03/2013) [-]
That sounds like exactly what I need.
High school is set up in a way that I can barely focus by the third class, and basically kills my motivation.
You, sir, have brightened my outlook for the future.
User avatar #21 to #18 - spankyy (07/03/2013) [-]
Oh also, they generally have the attitude of "We're all adults now, if you need to leave, just leave." so if you need to just get away from someone, and just can't take their presence any longer, you can just get up and walk out. Might want to explain to the professor or make-up an excuse just to be courteous (later that is) but you can do it.
User avatar #22 to #21 - bladebites (07/03/2013) [-]
Thank god.
User avatar #20 to #18 - spankyy (07/03/2013) [-]
Yeah, community colleges can stress some small things, like punctuality, and attendance, but all in all it's WAY more relaxed. When you're between classes they don't care where you are. If you want to avoid people you can stagger your classes to try and do so. If you REALLY want to avoid people you can drop the class and just take it with another teacher if you discover it before the withdrawal date. You'll be happier with it than high school.
User avatar #114 to #12 - hookydoo ONLINE (07/04/2013) [-]
yep, going into my 4th year of college. Its definitely better than any public school. In my freshman classes, there were of 300 people in each class sometimes (for all the entry level classes everyone takes), you can literally walk out of those anytime you want and no one cares. As you progress, you start taking classes that only people in your major will take. As an engineering student myself, my Math classes are full of mostly similar minded people, and by the way, in those classes there is no attendance policy. If you're not in class, you're a ******* idiot and you'll be repeating that class (no offense, but you cant pass them without going). I just finished a summer calc class where the only grades were the 2 exams and the final. you fail one, you're done, $1300 down the toilet.

my advise would be to get a major in a hard field (engineering, chem, biochem, etc) even if you like it or not. do a double major if you're passionate about something else. My friends that have degrees in liberal arts or other "easy" majors are either working minimum wage jobs or had to go back to school for a hard degree because their first one didn't get them anywhere. unfortunately, in the end, you have to make some money, and unless you're only supporting yourself (and on a tight budget at that), a job that pays 30-40k just isn't going to cut it now days.

phew, what a rant (cracks knuckles)

tl;dr, college is awesome but can be hard sometimes
User avatar #123 to #114 - bladebites (07/04/2013) [-]
Typically I just wanted to study something I'm interested in, but also as much business and finance as possible. I'll eventually be getting my father's company. I already have a somewhat guaranteed job, but I want to be good at it and know what I'm doing. I can't do it if I don't know business.
Other than that, I was planning on just taking whatever floats my boat.
#16 to #12 - herpdamin (07/03/2013) [-]
bladebites spankyy Sinless I guess it varies alot depending on countries, even regions. Do you pay tuitions, is it heavy on the studying?
User avatar #19 to #16 - spankyy (07/03/2013) [-]
I didn't study much when I went, but I failed 2 classes. That was because I never went, but when I went back I took online courses, literally did all the classes in about a week, and never even bought my textbook for my COM 100 class, and passed them all. Attendance is my biggest problem. I'm a quick learner, but **** attendance.

It was roughly 900$ for my 4 classes. I'm in the US in Arizona.
#23 to #19 - herpdamin (07/03/2013) [-]
It's interesting because studying in a Scandinavian country I get student support for going to college. I'm not gonna start a "drr nordic countries are best countries discussion" here - it's just interesting because a core motivator for me in college is the "Okay, this is what I get paid for, time to study." -factor. It's interesting because in so many places it's reversed, you don't get paid you pay to study. Big tingz..
User avatar #25 to #23 - spankyy (07/03/2013) [-]
Yeah. Here in the US we can get federal aid, but all of my federal aid consists of loans. So if your family makes a low enough amount you can get money so you can go, but otherwise you're paying for it one way or another. It's a damn shame. I wish I lived in a nordic country sometimes purely because so many of them pay you to go to school.
User avatar #24 to #16 - Sinless (07/03/2013) [-]
USA here, we pay tuition and a lot of us are forced to take up expensive loans to pay for it.

I worked hard to avoid the loan trap which made school even more stressful. But the study load depends on the major and your ability to learn. I had no issue studying with the general education courses, and knocked those out in three semesters taking as many credits as were allowed. But the stress still came in the form of essays. Essays due nearly every week, that were what your grade really depended on.

I majored in engineering, so the source of my stress spoke for itself.

But just be wary. As you get along through your academic career, you will need to learn how to prioritize workloads. Many times I had to calculate which essays and tests would affect my grade the most and which ways I would be able to stall for time or get a test reschedule.
#26 to #24 - herpdamin (07/03/2013) [-]
"the study loan depends on the major", wait a second. Does that mean that you get better loans depending on your major? Say, someone studying medicine can get better payments/lower interest rates than a, say, philosophy major?
User avatar #27 to #26 - Sinless (07/03/2013) [-]
I said load, not loan.

The financial aid loans are usually dealt out in terms of financial need.
#90 to #12 - stopsdropsand (07/04/2013) [-]
Don't make the same mistake I did. Most of my graduating class in high school really didnt care much about education. So naturally I thought that everyone in college were smart and **** . But nope, there are idiots everywhere.

I don't get people's beefs with community colleges. I go to one. I've probably saved 20,000 bucks by now. I graduated from high school in the top 5% of my class of a few hundreds. Almost got a full-ride('til Graduate School) but did something really stupid and ended up not getting it. Also got a few other scholarships from here and there but I would still need to pay for board and housing, I said " **** it" and started a local CC. I don't regret starting at a Community College one bit. Then again I'm a hipster who's never given a **** about the status quo. I'm out of here by next year with almost all of my required 1st year and 2nd year Engineering classes and transferring to one of the biggest schools in the nation.
