    So I was touring a dorm and all the floors were co-sex. Which I think is cool. But as we were being showed around we came across the showers in the middle of the dorm. This was the only shower/ bathroom I saw (small college) and there was no male or female sign outside. Inside there were no urinals. I was too embarrassed to ask if it was co-sex because that sounded so weird. But afterwards my mom was asking me about it becuase she got that impression too. So is that normal?

    Though from my understanding, a lot of schools require that you take some sort of public speaking course. If you do have to take one as part of your GE, one of the best pieces of advice I can give you is to get it over with ASAP. Sure you can wait, but do you really want to wait until the last semester to take a class you could have finished in your first couple of semesters of school?

    A couple months ago, I took an introduction to psychology course with a professor who I thought was cool and nice. Tables turned when she emailed me after I took my third midterm exam and she accused me of cheating. She said one of her teacher assistants saw me and the girl sitting next to me "talking" during the exam, but I did not even have any friends in the class so I do not understand how the teacher assistant could of thought I was talking to the girl sitting next to me. The professor made me feel uncomfortable for the last three weeks of the semester in the class and ever since then I have had really bad anxiety. I could not even enjoy my Thanksgiving break because of her. I know it has been about three months since it happened, but would it be pointless if I try to report her to the dean of my university? Luckily, I passed with a good grade in the course, but I just do not find it fair how she accused me of something I did not do and she also threatened she would tell the dean of the university if I was to sit next to the girl on the final exam, but I kept telling her I did not know who the girl even is?! Should I do something about this even though it has already happened? Thank you for your time.

    Best answer: Out of curiosity, have you ever been tested for ADHD? ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder) has three types: Hyperactive Type, Inattentive Type, and Combined Type. Most of the stereotypes surrounding it have to do with children that have hyperactive type. They often blurt things out without thinking, jump out of their seats, can't sit still, are always fidgeting, etc. But not everyone who has ADHD acts like that, and the disorder can change as people grow up, so adults often have different symptoms from children.

    I have Inattentive Type ADHD, and I was diagnosed while I was in college. One of the most common symptoms is that ADHD can disrupt a person's executive functioning in several ways. There are eight executive functions that cover abilities like starting a task, organizational skills, and regulating emotions. Most people with ADHD struggle with at least a few of the executive functions, although someone might be excellent at others. You can read more about executive functioning here: http://www.ldonline.org/article/29122/

    Personally, I struggle a lot with boredom. For people who have ADHD, boredom can be almost painful, and a boring task (like reviewing notes from class) might be nearly impossible.

    I don't know if you have ADHD, but it sounds like it might be an option. Do some research into "adult ADHD symptoms" and see if you think it fits enough to get tested. It would explain why you can't seem to get yourself to do things even though you are motivated to.

    If you do have ADHD, there are several things you can do. First, I really recommend finding a professional therapist to talk things over with. They can help you develop strategies and coping mechanisms and decide what your next steps forward should be.

    Second, try taking classes that require less studying and more doing interesting things. Are you able to complete projects that are assigned? If you are building something with your hands? Can you write a paper? Can you give a presentation? Try to take classes that have more of those things and less dull studying for tests.

    Third, if you do have to study, don't do it alone. Find a friend in the class or invite someone to study with you. Talk about the material, make flashcards and then play study games with them, or have another friend quiz you both and turn it into a competition. Don't expect yourself to stick with it for hours at a time. Set doable goals like 20 or 30 minutes and then feel good about completing that.

    Fourth, If you do end up having ADHD, medication can be amazing. It evens out your brain chemistry to more standard levels and gives you motivation where you wouldn't otherwise have it. It's not perfect and not everyone benefits from it, but if you have ADHD, it's definitely worth a try.

    Best of luck!

    Best answer: Yes, it definitely Is worth all agony and frustration to EARN a master's, i speak from personal experience. i dropped out of graduate school for 7 YEARS, but i went back to college and then back to graduate school, I EARNED that master of science degree, it WAS worth it.

    Yes, I DID want to try to get Ph.D., but my motivation has evaporated. i would have to move because The university i am close to does not offer the type of Ph.D. program i am interested in..

    ANYONE who thinks they can get ph.D. without getting a master's degree is an idiot in in my honest opinion.

    Yes, EARNING a master's degree IS worth it, especially if your employer provides substantial tuition support.

    I never attended a university im thinking on attending but I was wondering how they charge per semester... For example: it say it charge 56,536 to attend.. I finish and get bachelor degree in 4 years. That means those 4 years come on 14,134 per year. 7,067 per semester. Is that correct or i have it all wrong?

    To whom it may concern, I have just gotten accepted to my top choice college, and am ecstatic; I initially applied as a Spanish (BA) major, but am considering requesting a change to Philosophy (BA) for fall 2018. I have done the research, and those who majored in Humanities and Social Science programs not only scored higher on the MCAT, but also looked unique to medical schools and had a higher chance of admission... this means everything to me. Since I have not started yet, I should have no issue requesting a change of major, especially considering the fact that it's within the same department (College of Humanities and Social Sciences); but nevertheless, I am having a difficult time deciding! I live in Wisconsin, but the college of which I was accepted to is in Texas (where I also plan to practice medicine), so speaking Spanish would be an excellent choice... just struggling with a decision!

    I mean Bachelor's of Arts, so it would be a Bachelor's degree from a 4 yr university, (non STEM related). So is having a B.A. better/ more beneficial on getting a career/job and does it look better on a resume than not having one/ anything at all? I think it's better to have a Bachelor's degree in anything, even if it's Art, Sociology, or English; rather than not having one at all... In my case it's Philosophy.......my point is that I KNOW that STEM majors may train you more specifically for a job than a B.A. but wouldn't someone who has a B.A. be more qualified for any job than someone who has no college degree at all? The point in me getting a B.A. is so I can show it on my resume-- that I have at least a Bachelor's, it makes you more qualified for a higher paid job compared to someone who has no degree. I have 3 AA Degrees. If I got a STEM major, it would take forever for me to graduate since i'm not the math or science type and you must take so many math courses and difficult science courses for most STEM majors. so i just want a Bachelor's. But I also do not want to be stuck on only doing things in my major, so i'm planning on getting training at a more practical job like Business or tech and getting a certificate so I have some experience. I hope employers won't just hire those in a very specific major.

    Best answer: What drip said, for the most part.

    We go to high school (typically) ages 14-17. High school is free, and more than 90% of U.S. children complete high school.

    The terms "college" and "university" are more or less synonymic in the U.S. The distinction is one of size: a "college" awards only bachelor's degrees, with a smattering of academic graduate degrees; a "university" consists for several undergraduate "colleges" (e.g Arts and Sciences, Business, Nursing, Engineering, Education, etc.) and professional graduate schools (e.g. Law, Medicine, Dentistry, etc.). However, you say you are "going to college" if you are enrolled in any bachelor's degree program, whether you are enrolled in a small liberal arts college or a large university.

    Another distinction is "community college" or "junior college" which are two-(or so) year colleges that grant associate's degrees. They can either be terminal degrees that are vocational in nature, such as dental hygiene, veterinary technology, or radiological technology; or "transfer" degrees that stand in for the first two years of a bachelor's degree. People enrolled in the latter transfer to a four-year university after two years at community college.

    In the U.S., medical school is graduate school; you need to get a four-year bachelor's degree first. Medical school itself is another four years. Then you becomes a "resident" in your field of choice (or in whatever field you can get a placement; it's quite competitive). The length of residencies vary by field and by hospital; e.g. general surgery might be five years, neurosurgery seven years, and pediatrics might be three years.
