Should I major in Computer Science?0projectile motion2012-11-03 10:19:03
I am having a bit of trouble making up my mind on a major. I really want to go to Med School in the future. A little background, I am essentially a junior in college but a little behind in my studies. I volunteer at the cardiology department at my local hospital in the summers and volunteer as an EMT on an ambulance during the school year. I have a 3.6 GPA currently with only Chem and half of Physics done in terms of Pre-Med requirements. I declared my major recently as Computer Science because I have an interest in programming and could see myself in such an industry if I were rejected from Med School. But at the same time, I see friends around me who are also taking the Pre-med route but adoring in things like Biology and Psychology. I don't feel comfortable with a major that wouldn't be giving me a back up plan but Computer Science also seems kind of useless at times considering the fact that I wouldn't mind going overseas for med school either. Am I just wasting my time with a Computer Science degree? Should I just switch to something like Psychology. Psychology is only a 30 credit major at my school while Comp Sci is 55.[View Answers]

Ohio State University Essay help. Less than 300 words?0Cavin2012-11-02 14:09:19
I'm interested in The Ohio State University because it is located near three major cities: Cincinnati, Dayton, where the Wright Brothers were born, and Columbus is the state capital. Another reason why I want to attend The Ohio State University is because it's a prestigious and legendary university where many famous people completed their collegiate academics. When I am admitted into The Ohio State University I will pursue my undergraduate degree in Pre-Med. To prepare myself for this field I have taken a lot of science classes. For example, I have taken AP Biology and AP Psychology to learn more about the brain. My ultimate goal is to achieve my PhD and become a Neurosurgeon. I am considering the Ohio State University. The college has good medical teaching for those who want to go to the medical field. I want to go to the Medical field. My dream is to become an a Neurosurgeon, and I know if I go to the Ohio State University. I will become a good Neurosurgeon with good experience. As a undergraduate I would like to do Professional program of interest in Pre-Medicine because then I will get more idea how is it working in the Medical field. Ohio State has the largest amount of students coming from different countries to learn,earn a degree, and begin a new career. I would like to do my major on Biology. It closely resembles with the medical field I want to get in. It will also tell me about the human body, I think if I get admitted at the Ohio State University. I would have more opportunities expanding my knowledge in the Medical occult subjects.[View Answers]

I'm a perfectionist, but I don't want to set myself up for failure. Please let me know if I can get into a top school, or if I just be realistic and start looking at state colleges. I just took the SAT but I wasn't in tiptop shape (family problems before it--didn't study, it was only a dry run), and I got an 1880. I know that's really low for the schools I want. However, I know that I can raise my score; I want at least a 2100, and I'm studying over the summer. P.S. I am a white female.[View Answers]

I'm looking to do some college visits during this April vacation....i have to stay near home [Maine] due to time restrictions, but I don't have a list of colleges I want to visit.

Should I take CP or Honors English?0Kenyen2012-11-02 11:46:07
I have a really tough schedule 1st semester and an easier schedule second semester: 1st: AP Psychology H Chemistry H Pre-Calculus H English 2 2nd: CP Spanish 2 (They only offer CP Spanish 2) H Remember the Holocaust H Biology H Civics &Economics I hear from friends the English 2 teacher gives a huge amount of work and is a very tough grader, I would expect a B in that class, I am considering switching into CP, I am also trying to get out of Remember the Holocaust honors, and get into computer programming, and get into Spanish 3 and move English to 2nd semester. As a last resort I would consider moving English to a CP class. I am a great reader and writer, but I can't spell to save my life! I figure that is 3 very hard classes and one AP class, so maybe CP would be the way to go? Would colleges forgive me if I went to CP for a year and went back to honors English? My goal is to get into UCLA (Out of state) or at least go to a community college for 2 years and graduate from UCLA. This would be a last resort, but I still would like to get an answer. P.S. Please state a source, as I will not base a matter of such importance to pure opinion.[View Answers]
How am I doing so far in school?0Lallie2012-11-02 11:27:19
Well I really want to get into NC State University. I want to major in either Biomedical Engineering or Civil Engineering. I currently attend an Early College Program. It is a program that allows me to finish all my high school courses the first 2 years, and then the next 2 years I get 2 years worth of college credit. So far I have a gpa of around 4.7-4.8 weighted. The college courses I already finished are the following: Eng I, Eng II, finished Span III, Pre-Calc, Calculus, General Psychology, Ethics, Fitness, Health, General Chemistry, and Biology (ALL THESE courses are taken in North Carolina Central University). I'm still in high school, but taking college classes in a university. I'm still figuring out if it will transfer to NC State. I basically finished all my high school classes. I am currently in 11th grade. Here are my extra curriculars: -Science Club -National Honor Society -Student Government -200 Volunteer hours in hospital -Adopt a HIghway Volunteer -I'm ranked number 4/100 students (aiming to be valedictorian) -I did a summer program in UNC Chapel Hill university that taught me things like diversity and leadership -I did another summer program that enhanced my knowledge in biomedical engineering -SAT superscore: around 1600. (I know its bad, i need to improve. I still have a year and half to improve that score), i still havent taken the ACT, but I plan too. -I also was awarded about 5 awards in total after the end of each school year where teachers give certificates to students of the highest achievement in their class -I'm sure I can get pretty good recommendations from teachers too. Am i in the right track in going into the engineering program in NC STATE? And could you please give me your perspective in how I'm doing so far as a current Junior in high school? Thanks :D[View Answers]

I am currently a student in college majoring in psychology with minors in biology and business. I want to be a clinical psychologist but, I know that the treatment of mental disorders is becoming more biological than just cognitive behavioral therapy.

Accredited Online Psychology Schools, are they the way to go for a Bachelor's Degree?0Niecy2012-11-02 10:35:17
I've been in and out of college for a few years, and I get stressed out and have anxiety problems being around a lot of people in a class room environment. When I was college, I always got decent and good grades, but just had some social anxiety. I'm going to a psychologist right now who is helping me. A couple of the programs in the medical field I have been in were to stressful, and I don't like the fact that I would have to operate on people. I'm interested in psychology and how our minds work and made an A in a general psychology course on campus, and thought it was interesting. My mom got a Bachelors degree in Psychology. But, no matter how hard I try to go to school, I don't have the drive and focus to sit during a class room with a bunch of people because I get so nervous, so that is why I thought about getting an online degree in psychology? I know psychology deals with face to face interactions, so most companies might look down upon an online degree, but I'm getting too old and need a degree, and would just rather do online course work. I like helping people out, and usually when your a psychologist sometimes your only helping out one person, and I'm better in small groups than attending a class with a bunch of students. All this anxiety, and add, having trouble focusing in a classroom setting makes it hard for me to even finish any programs. I'm pretty smart, just would rather learn in an online environment, so I need to know a couple of the best accredited online schools that offer the best online learning experience? Any information would be helpful, so I can spend a lot less time on site at a regular campus. Thanks. I've look at Argosy University's website, but don't know if they are accredited or not?[View Answers]
What college would be best for me?0KERRIE2012-11-02 10:26:19
Right now I'm 14, a high school freshman (and yes I do plan to finish HS). I'm looking for a college that has good dance and psychology programs. I'm planning to double major in those feilds. These are things you're supposed to keep in mind for choosing schools so... -Cost: I don't really know, I'm not poor but not rich either...middle class I'd say. So it doesn't have to be majorly cheap, but not gonna break the bank either...i just don't know much about this -Location: Ok, I'm thinking (broadly) either in the US or Europe. If it's in Europe...I don't know, somewhere city-like. Near some of the big cities; london, rome, paris, barcelona, etc.... And if it's in the US I'd prefer somewhere where it's not to hard to travel to MA., somewhere on the east coast (I can go other places though.) I like both cold and warm weather, but I want somewhere where it'll atleast snow for december-january (aka xmas). -Living(on campus or off): on, I like the whole dorm idea - plus it'll cost less. -Size: I don't want a really small place, or one REALLY big, somewhere in the middle -majors/concentrations: Dance and psychology, and if they offer courses in some type of design or art, or creative writing -academic requirements: it's my first semester in highschool and I admit, I'm struggling alot (B's, B-'s, C's) but I'm usually a high-honors level (A's, A-'s ocasional B) I think I just need to adjust better, get more organized and I'll be back to my old standard -Campus life: ok, not too picky about this, just something near a thearter and a mall is ok with me. (and more clothing required parties than not, thank you) -Religious Afflilation: I'm christian - united church of christ - but the school doesn't have to be christian school, just that OR non-religous. Though I do want the school to be within easy traveling distance of a church So, I know that was like a novel, but can you help me? Thank you so much, in advance!!! <3333333333[View Answers]
Counselors and elementary teachers- how would you describe your personality?0dmm2012-11-02 10:10:56
I'm trying to decide between these 2 career paths for my future... as of next semester I will be a junior in college. I switched my major from elementary ed to psychology, then to ed. then to psychology again. I honestly can't decide what to do. So I'm sticking with psych for the rest of my bachelors degree. But once I graduate I need to figure out what masters program to pursue, so any insight on what personality traits are needed to get by in these professions would be great! Thanks[View Answers]
Trying To Make Some Plans For School, But Don't Know Where To Start?0Perla2012-11-02 09:56:16
I'm 21 and have reached the point in my life where I have some direction and believe I've found an interest I'd like to pursue further schooling in. Unfortunately (I say unfortunately because I feel GOING to class would be easier), online schooling is really the only practical choice for my lifestyle. (Please, spare any online vs. campus comments you have.) I've tried my best to research what I can on my own (I don't like involving others until I have as much info. as I can get), but the fact is, I don't know much about the college process. I don't know what I need to look into, I don't know what I need to apply to places... I'm interested in studying psychology as well as criminal justice/criminology. If anyone has any answers to the questions below, I would GREATLY appreciate your response! - Do I need to take the SATs to enroll in online classes? (I did not take them in high school) - What information do I need from high school? My GPA? My class rank? - Does what I want to study effect how many or what kind of English classes, or math classes (and whatever else) I'd have to take? - Do I need to contact anyone about this? Like high school kids talk to their guidance councilor about a plan (majors, minors, etc...) and to have everything explained to them. Is there someone I can contact to discuss what I want to do and how to do it? - Does anyone have suggestions for an online program that offers good classes for psychology/criminal justice/criminology? Preferably one that is priced reasonably (for example, I heard Phoenix is a great school, but even so, the cost is ridiculous). I will be paying for my schooling MYSELF so I will NOT be enrolling until I can afford to do so. That being said, I will be doing all I can to be able to do this as soon as I can, a manageable price tag would greatly aid the process. With the job market and economy how it is, I'm not about to dig a hole I won't be able to get out of. I really have no idea what I'm supposed to do, so any advice/steps would be appreciated! Thank you!!![View Answers]
How marketable will i be with my new degrees?0Albert Kim2012-11-02 09:11:23
hey everybody i graduated from UNCW with a BA in Psychology in 2009 since graduation i have been job searching and i can't seem to do anything better than retail :( i've always been a total tech junkie and i have a strong knowledge of networking and computer hardware in general, also some programming knowledge. So at this point, i'm back at the local community college and i'm on track to get: an associate's degree in Computer Information technology, an associates degree in programming, as well as a certificate in electrical engineering. It sounds like a lot, but since i already have a bachelor's lots of classes transferred so i can get all of this in 2 years. I plan to do an internship over the summer working as an IT guy at the local hospital. After i do this, how marketable will i be? Am i wasting my time at the community college? the college also offers a diploma in networking, and a diploma in web development. If i add those to my course load i could get out in 2.5 years. Would it be worth getting these diplomas as well? At this point I'm not sure what i want to have as my ultimate career, i'm guessing either programmer or IT work. Right now i just want to make myself as well rounded as i can. any help is appreciated[View Answers]

Nursing Question?0k.k2012-11-02 08:05:17
I'm in my third year at Santa Clara University, and don't know what I'm going to do with the Psychology degree I'm working on right now, so I've been thinking about leaving (since SCU doesnt have a nursing major) and transferring to get a nursing degree. All of the schools I've looked into that I would want to transfer to have three-year programs, and since I've already completed three years of college, I don't really want to do another three. So instead I've been considering getting my nursing degree at a community college. My thinking is that a RN is an RN no matter what degree you have, right? So my question is: How does an associates degree in nursing versus a bachelors' degree affect an RN? Is there lesser starting pay? Fewer job opportunities? etc.? Thanks for your help!![View Answers]
