Who here is in college?

Post by Guest on Fri Jan 21, 2011 1:52 pm

I'd like to know some more about you all!
And are you going to a 4 year or community college?
What are you majoring in?
How do you afford college?
If you aren't in college, but are planning to, you can answer the questions for you plan Smile

As for me I go to a community college and I'm going to transfer after I finish my general education.
I'm a history major and I'm thinking of specializing in religious history.
I get full financial aid.

So what about all you?

we call it university here. and im starting uni in september.. and im not getting any aid which sucks. people think that if i come from a european country i can afford it.. well NO i cant. ill have to take a loan which i will be paying back for the rest of my life and ill probably end up living in a womens refuge or somewhere just to have a roof over my head.

That's so cool that you get to do what you want. I wanted to be a teacher for as long as I could remember but everyone kept telling me I couldn't make enough money so I decided I would find something else. Then right after I graduated High School I said "fuck it, I'm going to do whatever the hell I want" and that's why I'm majoring in history-so I can teach it! It's an amazing feeling to do what you want!

It's worth it if that's what you really want to do. I'd rather have fun with my job, and not make a lot of money than hate my job and make lots of money. I wouldn't want to waste my life doing something I hate. Good for you for taking a risk. I hope it all works out for you Very Happy

I've been into massage therapy for 7 months. I both love and hate it. There are still somethings that im skeptical in but it seems Kerli has a strong belief in it so im gonna try. This college i am completely paying myself, so im in a similar position mimi. I think ill have to take some student loans seeing that i lost my job. I graduate in october of this year but after this i don't think im done. I want to get my masters in nutrition, herbology, and maybe iridology and then get my masters in art, then maybe become a vet for personal reasons i don't want to work in a veterinarian office. hmmm and then travel and blah blah blah

I was, but I graduated. I majored in Biology. I really, really want to go back to school for art/design, though. It's what I should have done in the first place but I was too scared. :/ And now since I'll be going back for a second degree I have no way to pay for it because.. well.. kind of a long story. I feel like I screwed over my future because of my fear. Soo... do what you want to do even if people think you're crazy. It's so worth it.

College is really expensive in the U.S. I got lucky and was able to get full financial aid and the bog waiver, but not everybody can get it. I've taken a couple of online classes, but I prefer actually going to class. It's just too hard for me to learn without being able to talk to my prof. face to face. But online classes are just as expensive.

I think the college in Norway is free, like everything else is free.. (not literally)
I hope I'll get into a good college so I can study in Berlin for a few years. Hopefully I'll have the money. I have already started to save money Very Happy

I think I want to take theory classes, I don't know what they're called in english, but in norwegian we call it "studiespesialisering" and "allmenn".

Yes it costs money, a lot of money! thousands of dollars per semester even if you go to a community college. If you are financially disadvantaged you can get help from the government. But it's so unfortunate isn't it? I had to take out loans to pay for mine.

I am in my fifth year of college, working on a double major in psychology and sociology in the US. I have had to go part time, which is why I can't finish in 4 years, which is the norm here. I still have one more year to go after this semester. I've just been going part-time and paying whatever I can as I go. Had to get loans for the first time this year. :'(

I agree! Stupid and Unfair it is! I am majoring in Psychology with a minor in Human Diversity. I have two more classes to go after this semester, and I'm done! It's taken me about six years because I had to do a little at a time. I am at a four year college and already have 30,000 dollars in loans:( Next will be grad school, cas I really wanna be a therapist next. So I'm sure it will be a $600 a month loan payment! But, I love my job so I guess it will be worth it! Smile

I'm at college/university right now. I go to Purdue University. Currently I'm majoring in Biological and Food Process Engineering but I absolutely hate it. Trying not to be too dramatic but if I have to take fluid mechanics again (dropped out last semester) I will kill myself. ABE majors have to take it with ChemE and they are the most stuck up, egotistic group of people I've ever meet. They thought all ABEs were stupid and a joke of an engineering career. But ABE is consistently ranked in the top 3 programs while ChemE hasn't made top 10 in a long time...
At 18, I don't think may people are prepared to make the decision of what they want to major in. If I had to choose right know I'd much rather be studying Accounting.

Because I'm out of state Purdue is very expensive, but (and I always feel so spoiled when I say this) my parents one a very successful business so they pay for everything.
