  • Do i have to take certain courses/classes in college to join the US Army?

    Best answer: As long as they are not the remedial classes that are offered for the people who don't do well on the placement tests.
    100 level courses as the others have mentioned. Not something like 080 math. That's not going to count.
    The art class should count. But take English and Math as well.

  • I don't know what to do... Help me...?

    Best answer: Have you done any acting or taken any acting classes? Have you joined your school's drama club or tried out for any school plays? If you haven't even auditioned for a school play, then you're a long way from becoming a successful actor. Get involved with theater somehow while you are still in high school. Start filming small videos with your smart phone and figure out how to edit them (I'm sure there are videos on Youtube) just to get some experience. Engineering is a really challenging field, but if you are really determined to become an actor or director, you have to aim your efforts in that direction. For acting, you need to get involved with a theater group in college or volunteer as an actor in student films. Make sure you choose a college that offers a TV/Film major and see if you can take acting or directing courses in addition to your engineering/computer classes. See if you can choose a computer major that allows you to do computer editing and computer-generated graphics because those are skills that might get you into the film or TV industries. Seek out internships while you are in college that will move you toward your goals.

  • How do you become a scientist?

    Okay so I’ve always wanted to find out how to find cures to health issues like cancer cuz of personal reasons.

    Okay so I’ve always wanted to find out how to find cures to health issues like cancer cuz of personal reasons. On the other hand I live in Canada and I’ve done some research but I’m 15 so I don’t know too much about future jobs yet. Idk if it works differently in places like US or not. I’ll be choosing my courses for grade 11 later this year and I don’t know what courses to take. I’m planning on asking my guidance counselor or science teacher later once we’ve done more than just chemistry but I’ve just wanted to do some research myself rn cuz I still have time. I love chemistry but I hate physics and I find biology boring. I also know that school would probably take around 8 years to finish. And I’m also not completely sure how it works and if I’d want to be a medical scientist completely. But I know that I want to be involved in science somehow. How does the job work? Do you work independently or in teams? I know I might be planning too quickly, but if I don’t plan it out now I’m screwed next year.

  • Is a Bachelor's degree good enough to get a good job in your opinion?

    Best answer: Only 33 percent of the American public even has a bachelor's degree. Fewer still have them in STEM fields, a good school, or with good grades. There are lots of ways to set yourself apart.

  • Can I omit my college transcript when applying to a new college?

    Best answer: If you are not trying to transfer any credits, technically you do NOT have to send those transcripts. The sticky part is when did you actually graduate from high school? IF you have been out of high school for three years, you will be asked what the heck you've been doing. You don't want to lie. Also,... show more

    Also, Laurie is correct in that if you received any financial aid at those CCs and you apply now for financial aid, there will be a record of that.

    Universities are very touchy about lying and if you are found out to have lied, your chances will be over. I would encourage you to discuss this with an admissions staff person.

  • How to ask for recommendation letters?

    Best answer: If you're a good student, get your homework on time and not disruptive in class, any teacher who gave you a good grade should give you a good recommendation.

    Best answer: If you're a good student, get your homework on time and not disruptive in class, any teacher who gave you a good grade should give you a good recommendation. What elite colleges are looking for is evidence of unusual talent --- a teacher who can say that you are good at some sport, or play a musical instrument, or volunteered at a local hospital, etc.
    Most teachers try to do well by all their students, but can't be "pals" with 20 to 100 students each year.

    I’m a second year university student and I am genuinely concerned about one of the professors I had this semester. I know it’s absolutely none of my business, but honestly, I have NEVER seen a woman so THIN before. She’s about 35 and is dangerously skinny. She doesn’t seem to have even one pound of fat on her. She is a lovely professor and is very kind, intelligent and understanding. I am a female of normal weight, and her thigh is about the width of my arm. Her entire body is like a stick. Maybe it’s just her genetics or something - I don’t know. Should I remain silent? I know it’s definitely not my place to say anything but I’m actually worried.

    I am a freshman in college right now. When I was a senior in high school, I wanted to major in business and create my own business after school. When I first got to college, I changed my mind to Biology Education (biology was my favorite class in high school). Then, last week, I changed my mind again to music education. I thought that one made more sense because I have been involved in music since 5th grade and have loved it. I got to thinking about it and I can't picture myself enjoying being a music teacher. I am not satisfied when I think about it. A LONG time ago, I thought about majoring in agricultural business/production. My grandparents own a farm, and are talking about moving into town. I was going to take over their farm. Should I reconsider that idea? I have no idea what to do... People say I have time to figure it out, but in reality I don't. I don't want to spend more time and money in college than I have to. Thanks in advance and sorry for the long description.

    Best answer: No, not necessarily but that doesn't mean you have to continue.

    Step #1: Get academic support NOW for your current classes. Join study groups. Go to your teachers' office hours. Hire a tutor. You want to get through this semester and get decent grades. You never know what you may want to do a few years down the line.

    Step #2: Look into getting some psychological counseling if you think you are depressed. It is perfectly okay to just not like school, but some wording in your post suggests that you may be depressed. This is treatable, but it doesn't go away without treatment. If you need help, please get it.

    Step #3: Talk to your academic advisor and consider withdrawing AFTER this term is over. There is no shame in taking time off from school. You may not be destined for college, or you may just need a little time to find your way.

    Step #4. If you decided to take some time off, start looking for a full-time job during your Thanksgiving break. Even if it isn't your dream job, you need to do your best to work close to 40-hours a week. Not only with this give structure to your life and money in your pocket, but it may also give you a clearer idea of what you do and do not want to do for the rest of your life.

    Step #5: When you have time, read some books and take some tests. There are all kinds of books (and audiobooks if you don't like to read) on how to find your passion. There are also aptitude and personality tests that will help you understand your gifts. Your college advisor can probably suggest so to you.
