    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: 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 have to attend a meeting and can't attend this class at the same time. So I emailed the prof saying I'll be absent. She replied back asking if I can attend class by Google Hangout or esle I will have to do a makeup assignment. Was she testing if I was just skipping class for no reason?

    I have never got exceptional grades. I always got mediocre grades because i hate studying. It honestly feels like torture. I barely passed in high school and was able to get into a college. I'm in year two of mechanical engineering and failed half my courses because i have no motivation to do work. Why am i like this? Makes me feel like i won't go anywhere in life. I try studying sometimes but after an hour i usually stop because i hate it. It's not engineering i hate it's just studying in general. My brother and cousins all do well in school. I'm the only person in my family that i know of with this problem. I need help desperately. I try making study time tables too but i can't get myself to follow it. I feel like i won't amount to anything because of my hatred for school. I just feel like giving up. But if i give up i'll be a bum the rest of my life. I just can't take this anymore.

  • Why do people need to study at a university?

    Give me a good reason to study at a university. Because if you want to get a job a community college is good enough.

    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!

  • Is having a B.A. degree better than not having one at all? Do employers really care about your major?

    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.

I know that I love to write, communicate with people, Iโ€™m always keeping up with the latest media and current news stories. I also love doing research and coming up with ideas.Everyone around me said that Communications is a terrible degree and I should major in business even though I have no interest in it because it is a more stable major. Or are there better majors that fit my interests?

    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.

    I am currently 16 years old. I am a Junior in high school. I am not good at anything and have no talent at anything. My grades are all Fs and worrying about my Future stresses me out. I'm worried that I'm gonna end up like my mom and dad. They were both alcholics and drug users but not anymore. They stopped doing dumb stuff and they want me to go to college and be successful person. What I'm thinking is that I don't have the potential to be what they want me to be. My grades have been bad ever since like elementary school. I struggled to keep my grades a passing grade ever since then. I always put me fullest into my work but end up with a C other than an A. So it feels as if there's no point in trying anymore. I have been thinking about learning a trade in carpentry or something like that. It's just my grades that is keeping me from reaching that goal. My sister is a year older than me and she is the opposite of me. She has all good grades and gpa and she's getting ready for college. Maybe having a successful life isn't meant for me. So I'm thinking that I just drop out and work at a minimum wage job and work my way from there. I don't see myself graduating or going to college.

    The closest that you can say that they are like another is to say, "You get into it exactly what you get out of it." Party on, and it's a waste of money. Apply yourself, and it's an excellent education.

    Hello, this fall I will be beginning my college education. I know that dorm rooms are small (especially freshman rooms), so I was curious on whether or not it would be a good idea to bring my 1 year old desktop to college. It is not super large like many gaming computers, but still medium sized. I was thinking I could use the desktop for bulkier projects and programs, while I could purchase a cheaper Chromebook to take around to classes and what not. Would it be a good idea to bring it to my dorm room, or should I look into spending money on a dedicated laptop? Thanks!
