• My son, who has a 4.6, just committed to the University of Michigan. Should I be proud or disappointed?

I want to be happy for my son but on the other hand, I am a little disappointed he would choose a public university over three elite private schools, one being in the Ivy League.

  • Why don't more people complete double majors or dual degrees?

    Best answer: Many people cannot manage the pressure or stress, physical AND emotional / mental stress) of double major or dual degree program is why. Only 35% of the general public have SOME college education but that is now OUTDATED because that information is based on 2015 government data.. The only reason my closest friend got two bachelor's degrees and not one from Tulane was there was no B.S degree program with a major in music piano performance or music history offered by Tulane University Sophie H. Newcomb memorial college , and she CHOSE to do B.S in physical degree program 1971 to 1975. There were NOT dual degree programs offered. Tulane's medical school no longers offers the dual M.D. Ph.d double doctorate degree program that my friend was admitted to. My firend did another bachelors degree at another university at ALMOST the same time., si she triple majored.. her son was admitted into an accelerated bachelor's d and master's degree program at Stanford in 2005. He did NOT double major TECHNICALLY but he kind of did double major. His Ph.D. is in physics and it is from Berkeley , not Stanford..He got TWO master's degrees, but i am not sure if they are both from Stanford. physics AND aeronautical engineering.. Both my friend and her sons are exceptions. Despite all her protests, she and both of her sons and very likely her husband all have high IQs. My friend had scholarships AND she worked to put herself through college and medical school and she still has 2 jobs Even though she is full time faculty member of health sciences technical university..She Was going to college until recently too , to get another master's degree., she's been doing THAT FOR YEARS..

    Lots of people change their majors multiple times. I've known people who have changed their majors five times, but it usually means staying is school longer than the usual 4 years, and many bachelor's degrees now take longer than 4 years to get because many people are working 2 or even 3 part time jobs or full time job and 1 or 2 part time jobs AND raising children all at the same time. Having a baby is HUGE distraction, because taking care of and raising the child becomes higher priority than your own education..
    Many people simply CANNOT mage the stress of a double major are a dual degree program.

    Liberal arts majors usually don NOT have that much trouble finding a job. the people who get Business degrees are the one's who can't find jobs because the market is flooded with B.B.As and M.B.A/ it's shocking how many people are totally delusional about liberal arts majors being useless, because liberal arts majors INCLUDE SCIENCE AND MATH MAJORS. Some people need a reality check.BEFORE the Real world slaps them in the face. and they find themselves out on the street..

    What may be easy for you, MIGHT be extremely challenging, both physically AND mentally for someone else.. I been a type 1 diabetic since i was 2 years old. i have no clear memories of ever N OT being diabetic. Yes, i am physically handicapped, but i am NOT mentally handicapped., for a very long time. half my life, I was in denial that was phys am physically handicapped.. yes, I DO DOUBT my sanity, frequently,. for the last 50 YEARS and counting. My mother really did have me tested when i was 14 years old. no 14 year old is entirely sane..

    I'm a second year college student and things have been really going downhill. I've been a top A student for most of my life but I'm beginning to worry. My first year of college, I had good grades, not as high as high school but definitely good. This semester I don't know what has happened but I have zero motivation to study. I go to lectures and zone out the entire class. I can't sit down and study for more that 5 minites without getting bored and distracted. I used to be great at studying but I honestly can't anymore. I feel burnt out. I get on average 4 hours of sleep a night, I'm always anxious, sad, and tired. These are all due to college. How can I get back into the game and be motivated?

  • Does college make you smart?

    Best answer: Coursework, independent thinking, research, etc, all exercise your brain. So a smart person will get "smarter," use more of their brain. In fact, it is not at all unusual for IQ test scores to increase from high school to college - IF you are really working at it, taking challenging courses, working on... show more

    so this is going to be long but read the whole thing if you are going to post an answer talking to me. so basically i want to kill myself but i am not sure about doing it because i am 20 years old right now and if i die from natural causes i will be dead in 70 years max. so 100 years from now whether i died at 20 or 99 years old its the same thing so might as well end it all now and not deal with the crap that comes with life because things have been going downhill ever since high school was over (life is easy until high school is over). basically college makes me depressed because i made some mistakes that destroyed my gpa in my bio major. its a 3.35 right now and i am a junior (i know some of you will say thats not bad but i am trying to get to med school). the mistakes i made were 3 addictions that i developed: skateboarding, a video game called counter strike global offensive, and gambling. i gambled away 6 thousand dollars which is all behind me right idc about money. i spent around 750 hours in counter strike but i deleted the game a while back and i dont play it anymore because its so addicting. and my dad made me quit skating because i was hurting myself a lot (i spent more time on skateboards than counter strike). but all those addictions are gone and i am left with my gpa that is 3.35 and i am grinding so hard to get it to at least 3.5 before applying into med school. things for my mcat are going well so far. it wont let me type more i will finish in the edit
