    So I am going to be a senior in highschool and the future is really stressing me out. I have maintained a good GPA and could get into a university if I wanted to but I’m not sure if that is a smart idea for me. I really enjoys music and would love to pursue something in it. Such as production/business/or singer/songwriting genre of things. My only dilemma is that I will be paying for my college or most of it and feel like I would save so much going to a CC but if I did go to a CC I would move out of my house because of other issues. Plus at four year universities there isn’t many music options same with community college but still. I’m just so lost and would like to hear some advice from someone I don’t want to go to community college and feel judged or get really lonely due to the smaller atmosphere

  • My college roommate is a smoker???

    So I just found out that my soon to be college roommate smokes pretty often. Even though I will not be anywhere near him while he smokes, since it is not allowed on campus, will it negatively affect my lungs just by living with him?

    Best answer: Let's try to break this down a bit:
    1. As others have noted, in the U.S. a person is expected to have mastery over several subjects in order to be worthy of a bachelor's degree. A university education is about advanced study and mastery of a variety of subjects. It is not a trade school. You have to have a bachelor's degree to apply to medical school. You will also need a variety of academic knowledge and skills in things like English, history, psychology, etc. to be a doctor.
    2. Most U.S. medical schools will not accept any pre-med courses from a community college simply because the academic standards are too low at a CC. Therefore, you would be best served by doing two things: 1) Get all of your non-pre-med general education classes covered, and 2) Go ahead and take Biology and Chemistry because a lot of very smart kids have a lot of trouble with these classes and getting exposure to them at a CC will help you do better when you take them at a university.
    3. You may truly major in any subject you want. There are doctors who majored in everything from dance to Spanish to history. Because the medical school pre-requisites are very similar to the major requirements for biology and chemistry, many pre-med students chose biology or chemistry for their major, but you certainly don't have to. When you transfer to a university, you need to meet with a pre-med advisor who will help you select the classes you need to take in order to meet medical school admissions requirements.

  • What does it mean when a person says “The youth today thinks that the world owes them something”?

    Best answer: It means that they think that younger people believe that the world should provide more than just existence and opportunity. That is, that simply by existing, certain things should be provided to them. Old folks tend to pretend that they did not grow up in a society where there were things given to them simply... show more
    Best answer: It means that they think that younger people believe that the world should provide more than just existence and opportunity. That is, that simply by existing, certain things should be provided to them. Old folks tend to pretend that they did not grow up in a society where there were things given to them simply for existing. They simply fail to recognize how similar their youth was to the youth of now (or any time period, really). They choose to see the differences instead of the many similarities, and they are complaining about it.

    Kids these days know nothing. I used to walk to school five miles uphill each way. Kids have it so easy now and still complain. geez. They do not know what it means to work to survive like we had to (even when the speaker never actually did have to).

    I am from a great generation because we know what it means to struggle and make success from nothing. Kids these days are not great because they do not know struggle and think that success should come from no effort. Total bullshit.

I’m passionate about the language and culture, I grew up in a predominantly Spanish-speaking community. From my friends from school, the classes were mainly about writing, and they all said it was boring so I didn’t take it. However, I want to be a teacher... later. So I’d love the option to teach Spanish or teach at a bilingual school.

    Best answer: I feel the same way. I have friends, I just don't have any classes with them. We either have different majors or are just in different spots on our degree. We're all on different paths and our courses never line up. Even if I am taking the same class as someone I know, there are many different sections for that class. I might only be able to squeeze in the 2 pm lecture and they might have to do the 10 am lecture. It's a huge struggle. Don't worry, it doesn't mean you're unpopular. Try to keep up with the friends you do have and make time for them, and you will meet friends from them too. It's hard to keep up with people but don't take them for granted because you'll regret it and feel lonely in the end

    Good luck in school, I'm a college student as well. And don't forget to choose a best answer later, you get points too

    Just take an inanimate object and make it relate to you in some way.
